  • Beautiful house!

    "My husband, sister and I stayed in the house for about a week while visiting Homer. The house was clean and the furniture was comfy...as well as the beds. Loved the big tile shower in the bathroom! There is a big beautiful kitchen that unfortunately it was not well equipped. We did notify the property management company that we had no large pots or large frying pan...and they responded quickly...sending someone out with a couple of items. Unfortunately, they brought a small saucepan and a 13 x 9 baking pan. He said it was all the local store had (which really was the case). Hopefully they will supply better inventory for future guests. We would have loved to do some cooking but were unable. The deck is great with a small table and two chairs...with another two Adirondak chairs. We also enjoyed the upstairs loft for board games and taking in more views. Laundry facilities were very useful and in good working order. The bedrooms do not have dressers...this wasn't a problem for the master bedroom as the closet has shelves. My sister had to put her clothes on the extra bed. There was a dresser up in the loft that would have been better if it were in the guest room. Plenty of closet space! We had a few really rainy days and would have loved to have a DVD player to watch a movie or two. Do not let the critiques scare you away! We would return to The Seaside Escape in a heartbeat! It is a beautiful house with awesome views....lots of brochures, Alaska magazines and books. Very convenient to the town."

  • Stay here!

    "My family and I have stayed at other homes in the Seward area and this is easily our favorite. It was very clean and conveniently located downtown. The owner was very helpful and responsive. It is clear the owners have taken great care in my maintaining this older home and have put thought into all the finishing touches."

  • One of the best vacation spots of our lives!

    "I can't imagine a vrbo more perfect for us than Little Fireweed Cottage. The owners were very easy to work with from start to finish. We are two couples in their 50s & 60s. One has some physical impairments, so our only suggestion would be grab-bars and non-slip decals for the bathtub. She did take a tumble during our stay. This was an ideal vacation spot ... close to everything, yet private. No traffic noise. There were adjoining properties, but the most we saw or heard were "children" noises from down the hill, and only during the day. Very faint, no problem. Wildflower, native grass "lawn," just like we have at our lakehouse in northern Wisconsin. We had moose in the yard, nearly every night. I suspect there aren't bears in the area, as the garbage bin at the end of the driveway went undisturbed. We were less than a half-mile from the Down East Saloon and liquor store. Check out open-mic night. FUN! Got some pointers while there, on where to dine in Anchorage on our way home. Only a mile or two from the Old Town Area and entrance to the spit. From the deck, the view includes a bit of Beluga Lake, the Homer airport, the bay and the mountains! Imagine sitting in the hot tub at the end of the day with a glass of wine, watching the everchanging lightshow on the distant peaks ... Close to the museums, nature trails, the Bear Creek Winery and a paved walk that runs to Old Town. New washer/dryer was nice to have. Ample towel supply, great bedding, comfortable mattresses, especially if you like them on the softer side. They've added room-darkening shades in the bedrooms. Adequate storage. Nice supply of 'left-behind' spices, dishware, utensils and cooking supplies ... even Panko for our halibut and salmon. Could use more kitchen storage containers like Rubbermaid. Clean, comfortable, close to everything, private and a hot tub. What more could you ask for? Perhaps the perfect weather (no rain) we had, and no mosquitoes. The only "skeeters" we saw were on the trails at the Wynn Nature Center. Don't forget to take a sidetrip up Skyline Drive ... what a view. We rented the Cottage for eight days. Ten would have been perfect. So I guess we must return, eh? If we ever return to Alaska for a third vacation, we'd pick the Cottage again. Homer was a great town, from walking on the beach, museums, restaurants (including Hobo Jim's show at AJ's Old Towne Steakhouse), nature trails, the dock-creatures tour for $5, several visits to Salty Dog, boat excursions, etc."

  • Lovely House on the perfect part of the Kenai River

    "The House is located on the beautiful upper Kenai river. There's a lot of back yard by the river for fishing, playing or just relaxing. The Upper Kenai is quieter, greener with mountains and wilderness all around the House. Green/Blue glacier water runs right through this area. There's a quite a bit of salmon fishing by the house or just in the area. The house is very warm and has great energy. The living room sofas are very cozy and comfortable. You can sit there all day watching the river flowing by or having a cold beer after all full day of float fishing on the river. The King Size bed is also surprisingly comfortable and comparable to some 5 star hotel I have stayed at. Bathroom upstairs is clean and well equipt. We did not want to leave Kenai River house :)"
