Seward condo description
Our conveniently located condo is a warm welcome retreat after a long day on your fishing charter or tour boat. You can walk to your charters/tours; we're so close to all the harbor action there is no need to pay for parking! After cleaning your catch at the city supplied and maintained dockside tables ( a great place to swap stories) bring your fish back to store in the stand up freezer we supply or slap it on the gas barbeque we supply.
An eclectic array of restaurants, many committed to sustainable Alaskan seafood, are an easy walk to the boat harbor. Gift shops and local shopping, and the harbormaster are all with in walking distance. Wander the boat docks and comb the beaches enjoying seaside living at its best and most convenient. We are adjacent to a well-maintained, city supervised, RV camping area where locals and world travelers alike share our stunning views of this busy port. We are NOT secluded we are in the heart of the fishing/sightseeing and local community action.
Stroll south on the paved path along Resurrection Bay that begins literally right out your front door; discover Resurrection Bay wildlife, play at the family playground, challenge the skate park or carry your own feast to the public picnic pavilion all along this wonderfully maintained path which ends at the Alaska Marine Wildlife Center in downtown Seward. More historic buildings and shops await your curiosity with great restaurants and clubs to enjoy in the downtown area.
Experience Alaska along side Alaskans as you eat, hike, shop, fish, and explore Seward Alaska then return to your comfortable warm retreat by the Seward Boat Harbor

Good location and accommodation
Good location and accommodation
A convenient and well appointed apartment within walking distance of town. It’s in a row of about a dozen side by side apartments close to the waterfront. Onsite parking is very useful as parking is tight in Seward. Our apartment was a little tired, though clean and well appointed. When I mentioned to our host that someone had obviously been smoking in our bedroom she very kindly raced back with two new pillows, great service. The upstairs bedroom overlooks the downstairs living room so if travelling with other guests they need to be mindful. Very spacious in the upstairs room, a little squeezy in the downstairs room. The apartment overlooks an unsightly, very busy and slightly noisy RV park which is unfortunately left out of all the website photos. Otherwise a really good place to stay.

Owner response: We appreciate and value each guest's perspective and input. We are proud of our accommodations and exert a concerted effort with each guest to honestly present what we have to offer here at Harbor Lights Condos. Our guest from "downunder" smelled what he identified as cigarette smoke on his pillow. Even though I was unable to detect the odor on the pillow or in the room I have no doubt he was uncomfortable and we gladly replaced his pillows. We appreciate when our guests contact us with ANY concerns while they are visiting so we can immediately address it and the guest can continue on to enjoy their stay. We do not allow smoking or pets in our units.

We were fortunate to have found the Harbor Lights Condo for our stay in Seward. The condo was very well maintained and spacious. The location was great...could walk to grab a bite to eat or take a walk with a beautiful view. The highlight of the stay was the friendly moose walking casually down the street outside our patio window. Looked like a scene from the TV show "Northern Exposure." We loved it. When we visit Seward again, we will definitely be staying at the Harbor Lights (if there are openings). :) Thanks Mary for all your help!

Stayed here for two nights in July 2013. The unit was clean but our view overlooked and rv park so we basically couldn't enjoy the water views as there was no privacy. The place was clean and definitely convenient to walking to the downtown section stores. The caretaker was very friendly and hospitable and filled in on local hotspots like Thorns, If you venture down to Thorns order the bucket of Buts you won't be disappointed.

Owner response: Interestingly enough we consider the campers as part of what is enjoyable about being in the "heart of the harbor". The campers in the area behind us are enjoying being near the docks and the views of the bay and harbor just as we hope our guests do. There are definitely more secluded places to stay in Seward but none are closer or more convenient to the boating/fishing excitement of the harbor than we are. Thankfully the RV's and campers do not block the stunning views from any of our Harbor Lights Condos and more times than not they supply comic relief plus the opportunity for our guests and ourselves to meet other world travelers. We enjoy sitting on our balcony daily and hope our guests will too. Come on down and enjoy the fun! We are not secluded in the surrounding old growth forests. We are in the heart of the harbor. There are many lovely secluded places to stay in and around Seward. WE ARE A LOVELY PLACE TO STAY AT THE HARBOR.
Best vacation we have ever had. Harbor Lights Condos could not have been better for what we were looking for, The location was perfect walking distance to everything Seward has to offer. Condo very clean and had everything you need for a home away from home. Mary and Dennis are wonderful hosts and were so helpful and gave us some great advice on things to see and do in the area. Not bad on the fishing tips either. The views from the condo are beautiful, so enjoyed my coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the boats and the water, breathtaking. Now if your a fisherman which is why we were there this is the best place in Seward. You can just walk down to your charter boat a stones throw away from all the activity. We will be back soon and looking forward to another wonderful stay at the Harbor Lights. Thank You Bailys

Thank you for staying with us here at Harbor Lights Condos in Seward. Dennis and I are sorry we missed meeting you too. You generously mentioned in your review all the reasons we love being here at the harbor in Seward. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We are always available in unit #1 should a guest need our assistance but our hope is each guest enjoys our condo as if it is their private haven away from home.

We originally booked a hotel in Seward but then I looked on VRBO and found this place! We were so so happy we cancelled our reservations at the hotel! The condo is very well maintained, spacious, clean and the views are amazing! Dennis and Mary are so friendly and very helpful with all the information we received from them, I just wish we could have stayed another day and maybe had the chance of meeting them in person! You can't get closer to the Seward Harbor, it is a short walk right outside your door and you can see it from the deck!! We went on the Kenai Fjords Boat tour and it was so nice to just walk over there instead of getting in a car and driving! We walked to most of the restaurants and the shops are all close by! I especially loved sitting on the deck and having a cup of coffee in the morning and relaxing in the evening enjoying the view! BEAUTIFUL and it was so peaceful! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking at staying in Seward!

About the owner: Hi, We are Dennis and Mary Bailey. We have lived in Alaska for over thirty years and continue to enjoy the excitement and beauty that is Alaska. We own all twelve units in this condominium location and maintain them ourselves. Dennis loves fishing out of Resurrection Bay and goes out in our boat as often as he can. I like the small town opportunities for friendly neighbors and fun shopping. We have been in the rental business for over 15 years and have enjoyed preparing two of our Seward properties for nightly rentals. We love hearing your input; compliments and suggestions help us grow.
Why the Owner Chose Seward:
We have always enjoyed visiting Seward and love living here when we can. It seemed natural to want to share the experience with others.
