Cottage guests will enjoy lovely views, a fully-equipped, updated kitchen, and two cozy bedrooms with restored original hardwood floors.

About Christina

Alaska has been our home for 15 years. We enjoy the mountains, the water and small town life which is why we love Seward.

Why Christina chose Kenai Peninsula

The Sea Star Cottage is one of Seward's original homes, built in 1920 and renovated in 2012. Seward is a place where the mountains, the water and history all come together. Sea Star allows us to share the beauty of Seward with all who visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much. Y’all really make this house feel like an Alaskan home. Everything is kept so nice and tidy! I just love the beach theme too!! It is easy to see that you two put a lot of effort to make this house as comfortable as possible. I will definitely recommend this house to anyone I know! Thank you again.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the sea star before with our family. Everything is always perfect upon arrival. Being able to stay there makes us feel so at home!! We will continue to come and stay at the sea star each year and continue our family tradition of visiting Seward!

Perfectly curated cottage with wonderful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best equipped VRBO I have ever stayed. It had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes/gadgets, we had all the toiletries needed, and it was in immaculate condition. The location is perfect and downtown is right out your front door. Don't forget to eat a meal at The Cookery while you are here--by far the best food of our trip so far and the owners and staff were great.

Sea Star Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great Location. Short walk to Sea Life Center, restaurant's, and Harbor. Kitchen was well equipped. Bedrooms were fine. Enough hangers to hang clothes. Neat picture book with pictures of before and after renovation. Great washer and dryer. Living room comfortable. Safeway's was a 3 min drive. Would definitely stay here again.

Great retreat especially while you're working

  • 5 of 5

My three colleagues and I rented the cottage for a week while we were attending a workshop at the new Library Museum. The space was perfect for the four of us and offered plenty of amenities so that it almost felt like home. The location was great and our hosts were wonderful, especially since we ended up staying an extra night last minute. All the beds were super comfy but my colleague was not a fan of the pullout - she preferred to just sleep on the couch. The only drawback I can really think of was that we were in Seward during the winter so we didn't quite get to take advantage of all of the helpful sightseeing suggestions our hosts left in their guestbook. Also, it is an older home so at times it could be a bit drafty (also didn't help that we had 50 mile per hour winds the whole time we were there) but once you raise the heat in both the bedrooms and the main living spaces it was toasty warm. Will definitely stay here again and would love to check it out during the summer.
