Built in 1920 and remodeled in 2012, Sea Star Cottage is a charming family get away in historic downtown Seward, Alaska.

Cottage guests will enjoy lovely views, a fully-equipped, updated kitchen, and two cozy bedrooms with restored original hardwood floors. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen bed and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full sized lower bed and a twin on top.

About Christina

Alaska has been our home for 15 years. We enjoy the mountains, the water and small town life which is why we love Seward.

Why Christina chose Kenai Peninsula

The Sea Star Cottage is one of Seward's original homes, built in 1920 and renovated in 2012. Seward is a place where the mountains, the water and history all come together. Sea Star allows us to share the beauty of Seward with all who visit.

Thank you so much. Y’all really make this house feel like an Alaskan home. Everything is kept so nice and tidy! I just love the beach theme too!! It is easy to see that you two put a lot of effort to make this house as comfortable as possible. I will definitely recommend this house to anyone I know! Thank you again.

Perfect for us.

We had a wonderful stay in the Sea Star cottage! Cozy and comfortable, we enjoyed cooking in the well equiped kitchen. A great place for a family of four.

Great retreat especially while you're working

  • 5 of 5

My three colleagues and I rented the cottage for a week while we were attending a workshop at the new Library Museum. The space was perfect for the four of us and offered plenty of amenities so that it almost felt like home. The location was great and our hosts were wonderful, especially since we ended up staying an extra night last minute. All the beds were super comfy but my colleague was not a fan of the pullout - she preferred to just sleep on the couch. The only drawback I can really think of was that we were in Seward during the winter so we didn't quite get to take advantage of all of the helpful sightseeing suggestions our hosts left in their guestbook. Also, it is an older home so at times it could be a bit drafty (also didn't help that we had 50 mile per hour winds the whole time we were there) but once you raise the heat in both the bedrooms and the main living spaces it was toasty warm. Will definitely stay here again and would love to check it out during the summer.

The Sea Star Cottage is super clean and very well equipped for families with children!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Star Cottage is beautifully decorated and is peaceful. The location in Seward is excellent for walking to park, skate park, Sea Life Center and walking trail along ocean. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and the owners were very professional and responsive. I would stay at the Sea Star Cottage again and plan to.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable and in a great location. It is well stocked and very comfortable. My boys loved the buoy swing, too! Kid friendly, but not stocked for kids (no pack and play or high chair, but more than enough room if you bring your own). Owner was quick to respond, too. I'd recommend it.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here so much! The cottage is adorable, clean, convenient and so well set up for travelers. I've gone to Seward a few different times and this place was by far my favorite. Walking around the quiet side of downtown is easily done from the cottage which makes all the difference and being across the street from Resurrect Art & Coffee House is a total game-changer. Quiet mornings in the coffee house, relaxing evenings at the cottage after going out an exploring... couldn't ask for a better trip!

Loved this Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay... walking distance from shops and restaurants and the water. Very comfortable and well appointed. The mattress issues mentioned below have clearly been resolved as we slept well. Appreciate that even though 2bd/1ba sounds small, the common areas felt spacious and there is privacy between bedrooms and with the bathroom. Will be returning to this spot and recommending to all my Homer friends.
