Long Term Stay
"We occupied this unit for a longer stay than the average visitor to Anchorage as it was our temporary housing while moving to the area.
The unit is quite large, especially for a vacation rental - much larger than any hotel room you would find. It is stocked with all the basics that you would require while visiting Alaska and very clean. Both bedrooms are large and the Master Bedroom, which is outfitted with a King Size bed, has a private Master Bath. This makes sharing the unit with multiple people much more comfortable than your standard hotel room. Plenty of towels, blankets & bedding. Full size washer & dryer should you stay long enough to require it.
The location is perfect! Right near major roads for driving anywhere to explore Alaska yet within easy walking distance of downtown and the ocean. Lovely park nearby with great trails to explore as well. It is also located on a smaller side street so there is limited traffic on your road, you feel tucked away and private! Curling up near the gas fireplace on cool evenings makes everything seem warm & cozy!
The owner and our hostess for this property is a lovely woman who does what she can to help your stay be all that you were expecting. She went above and beyond to help us out with several situations and we felt privileged to get to know her while renting this unit. We felt like she actually cared about the quality of our stay and that all of our needs were met. This made our relocation experience much easier and as though she was our official welcoming committee for the state of Alaska.
If you want to "live like a local" or have the benefit of privacy, this is a great unit to accomplish just that."

"We enjoyed our stay at Downtown Seward Cottage. There was plenty of space for the 3 of us (2 big bedrooms plus a smaller bunk room) and the mattresses were comfortable (on the soft side). The kitchen had everything we needed, and more, if you didn't mind looking through cupboards/cabinets. Loved the location - we didn't realize it was so close to the water and to cute shops/restaurants - definitely a plus! Access to grill and porch was great, too. Communication with Tanguy and the local housekeeper was smooth and efficient. Overall a very pleasant stay."

"We rented Robb Bear's cabin for two nights. It was fun reading about his dog sled exploits. We met his darling little son. The cabin was very roomy and quiet. Great mountain views. I plan to stay here again soon to enjoy the fishing and hiking. This cabin would be great for a small family, as there was a loft with two extra beds."

"Very pleasant accommodation in an easy to reach part of Homer with nice view across the Kachemak Bay. Dale could not have been nicer or more helpful during our stay, from loaning us little things we needed but it wouldn't have made much sense to buy, to taking us out on his boat since he had just put it in the water for the summer and needed to "shake it down", anyhow. We had everything we needed for a great time, and our daughter especially had a lot of fun with Boon the Weimaraner and Ninja the Siamese cat. Good value, too, considering the general level of accommodation cost in Homer. If you're used to and expecting the Ritz, you probably need to look elsewhere, but if not stay here without hesitation!"
