About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

In the second story of our home we have two bedrooms, a full bath, kitchen and living room with a private entrance. Perfect for families or a couple of couples. Enjoy Mount Marathon through your window or a quick walk gets you to the trail head, afterward take in the beautiful bay view and relax in the comfortable living room.

A five minute walk to downtown shops, restaurants and the Alaska SeaLife Center. A beautiful one mile stroll along the waterfront gets you to the small boat harbor where more shops and restaurants are located. There you will also find wildlife/glacier cruises and tours, fishing charters. Seward offers many adventures like dog sledding on Godwin Glaciers, kayaking near glaciers as well as sailing.

It is just over a mile to the train station and cruise ship terminal.

In one bedroom we have a queen sized bed and in the other a king bed that can be converted into two twin beds. We also have a roll-a-way that can be set up in the living room.

About The Owner

We are recently married and met in 2005 in the great town of Seward. We love travel, adventure and of course Alaska.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Kenai Peninsula

After spending many summers here and struggling to find a place to rent we decided to invest. Seward is filled with good people & fun things to do. And we love being able to walk most places in this small town.

What makes this house unique

We are here and happy to help you plan your vacation, answer questions and share what we know about the area.

Clean, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

The views were amazing and it was so close to everything. We loved having the kitchen and a Safeway nearby. We walked down to a huge playground by the water and our kids played for hours while we watched Sea Otters play along the shore. We took a cruise and saw Humpbacks. Exit glacier was amazing and we liked the sea life center (the baby walrus was sooo cute) but it was expensive.

I couldn't find a pillow that was comfortable but there were a bunch to choose from. We enjoyed the game and movie collection.

I feel it is worth mentioning to anyone considering this VRBO that the pictures on the site don't do it justice. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in- it looks much better in person!

Overall a great place and we would come back!!

Great place to stay in Seward

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is roomy, clean, comfortable, well stocked kitchen, quiet and has an amazing view of the bay. It does require stairs so make sure that is OK if you book this place. It is a great location, we will stay there again if we return.

Lovely property, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in Vanessa's home and had a great time. The pictures don't do the apartment justice. It's a well-furnished home with lovely views. Also very clean, kitchen well-stocked, and fantastic location, can walk to the docks and downtown. Vanessa and her husband were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend this home.

Vanessa's Place Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location! Excellent home to stay convenient to everything and Vanessa's place was immaculate plus had all the amenities we needed for a great stay. My friend was competing in the Alaskan Extreme Ironman and it really provided a great location for the event.

We had the opportunity to meet Vanessa personally and she is awesome!!
