About the property

2 Bedroom 1.5 Bathroom Close To Downtown - SeaStar Suite

Our vacation rental units (built in 2016) were designed with your comfort in mind and come fully equipped with everything you'll need for an enjoyable stay. This unit is a two bedroom, 1.5 bath and is located on the second floor. The living room also has a queen-size pullout sleeper sofa for additional guests. You'll find unbeatable views of surrounding mountains from every window as well as from the spacious back porch.

* 2 Bedrooms and 1.5 Bathrooms

* Master bedroom has ensuite half bath

* Pull out queen size sleeper sofa in the living room for extra guests

* Black out blinds in all bedrooms

* Top down, bottom up blinds so that you can adjust for privacy but still enjoy the views

* Large washer and dryer for each Suite

* Fully equipped kitchen for cooking and entertaining

* Private deck out front with views of Resurrection Bay and Mt. Alice

* Back deck for relaxing with view of Mt Marathon and great evening sun

* Great location between the Harbor and Historic Downtown

Each bedroom and sleeping area is thoughtfully fitted with black-out curtains to help our guests get a good night sleep in the land of the Midnight Sun. The blinds are also top down, bottom up so that you can maintain privacy from the street but still enjoy the mountain views.

The kitchen features a large space for cooking and there are grills on the deck for outdoor cooking as well. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment you need to prepare meals and beverages.

Our property is ideally located right in the heart of Seward within walking distance of the harbor and the historic downtown district. Driftwood Suites houses three vacation rentals and the office for our real estate brokerage, Seward Properties.

We're only two blocks from a free city shuttle stop and less than a block away from Exit Glacier Guides which offers inexpensive transport to the Exit Glacier area of Kenai Fjord National Park.

Perched along the rocky coast of Resurrection Bay, Seward is a small, seaside community and a great destination for those seeking adventure, Alaskan style!

Seward Harbor is a great jumping off point for visiting Kenai Fjords National Park whether your preference is whale watching trip, fishing charters or sea kayaking. Downtown visitors will enjoy browsing numerous local shops, cafes and galleries or spend the day exploring Alaska's premiere aquarium, the Alaska SeaLife Center.

Don't forgot to save time for a hike - the Tonsina Trail to Caines Head State Recreation Area, the Lost Lake trail in Chugach National Forest and the Harding Icefield Trail in Kenai Fjords National Park are some of our favorites! If you prefer to keep it low-key, take a walk along the paved waterfront path running between historic downtown and the harbor and you're likely to see sea otters playing in the surf and eagles swooping over head - you might even catch a glimpse of a Steller sea lion!

Whatever sort of adventure you're looking for, we're confident you'll find it in Seward. We'd love to have you as our guests and are happy to answer any questions you have as you plan your visit!

About Seward Properties

Nicole and Colby have both been boat captains since 1999. They traveled around the world working on boats and ended up in Seward, Alaska because they love the mountains, community, wildlife, and proximity to the ocean. Since moving to Alaska full time in 2009, both Nicole and Colby have captained tour boats for Major Marine Tours, showing visitors the beauty of Kenai Fjords National Park and Resurrection Bay.

Nicole became licensed in real estate in 2010 and opened up her own brokerage in 2014. The team at Seward Properties handles sales, property management and vacation rental management in the seaside community of Seward, Alaska.

Seward Properties purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Seward Properties chose Seward

We bought this property in 2015 and had the building constructed during the winter of 2015/2016. As a real estate broker, I was looking for a good location for a new office and loved that this location was between the harbor and downtown areas, and only a few blocks from the ocean.

What makes this apartment unique

We designed the building to be to the highest standards of comfort and safety. We look forward to offering brand new construction/furniture and experiences to our guests.

We truly enjoyed our stay and were so impressed with the accommodations. It was very tastefully furnished, cable tv, pots & pans, plates, silverware, etc. We look forward to staying again in the future.

Fantastic stay in Seward

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is wonderful and so was our stay in Seward. The apartment has pretty much everything you could want or need and is very well positioned to be able to walk down town or drive around. The beds are very comfortable and the lounge makes a perfect spare bed if needed. The block out curtains, double glazed windows and heating keep it snug and warm. We appreciated the great laundry facilities also. An added bonus is the little balcony overlooking a lovely view of the bay and mountains opposite. There is plenty of parking at the rear of the apartments. The agent, Seward Properties, is also very helpful and prompt. We had an issue accessing TV stations which they immediately addressed - it was our mistake, though a list of 'accepted stations' would be helpful (there are so many). We contributed a cork screw bottle opener which was the only appliance we could not find. The next person can enjoy a nice wine in the evening. We would definitely come back and highly recommend this property. Thank you.

Great location and accommodations. Everything you could ask for in a Condo in Seward. Very clean and every amenity you could need. Perfect for the four of us. Location is very convenient. No surprises at all. The condo and location are exactly as advertised.

Located in the heart of downtown, we're a short walk from everything Seward has to offer! Spend your days taking the sites then relax in the evening and enjoy the spectacular views of Resurrection Bay and the surrounding mountains right from this apartment!

In our opinion no trip to Seward is complete without a wildlife cruise into the Kenai Fjords with Major Marine Tours. We also recommend visiting Exit Glacier, part of Kenai Fjords National Park and getting out kayaking with one of the local outfitters. Downtown, stop by the brand new Seward Library & Museum to learn more about our local history - a video detailing the 1964 earthquake plays daily in the afternoon during summer then swing into Zudy's Cafe (located in the historic railway depot) for a cup of coffee and a homemade pastry. We're always happy to answer questions or give recommendations of other activities you might enjoy during your stay!
