About Al Plan

We are both teachers here in Seward and bought this house to share with others the beauty and comfort that Seward has to offer. We moved to Alaska to work for 3 months and 6 years later we are still here! We feel extremely lucky to have found work in Seward because it is the most amazing place we have visited in this incredible state. The remoteness of Seward, its beauty and its amazing wildlife keep us astounded daily. We hope that you get the same feeling that we do while you are here on your visit. We are extremely happy to have you stay with us for your adventure and would love to turn you on to anything that the area has to offer.

Al Plan purchased this house in 2013

Lovely, Perfect Location, Clean, Comfortable, Spacious and great owners

  • 5 of 5

If I had known what a great place this was, we would have made our stay longer, we actually tried, Al tried hard but of course a place this nice was booked. The beds, bedding and pillows were all amazing, better than the hotels we stayed at. It was furnished very nicely and provided beautiful views and walking access to the downtown Seward area and the water. The place is spacious, clean and owners were friendly and gave great instructions. WiFi was a little sketchy at times, but who cares, we were in paradise. Everything that we needed was there. Thanks, Al Plan for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was a very positive experience!

Beautiful older house in town

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Seward. The house is well-designed and the views from the spacious and comfortable living room are outstanding. There is a nice entry room where you can take off your dirty shoes and boots and hang your jackets. The house is really more like 4 or 5 bedrooms as one of the upstairs rooms is quite large and has a couple of beds. The house is very close to downtown, a nice 5 min. walk. The kitchen was well-equipped with hardware, but we were spoiled by the two houses in which we had stayed previously during our trip, this house was very sparingly stocked by comparison (there was oil and salt and pepper in the kitchen). While we found it a bit strange when we learned that the owners live in the basement of the house while they rent the upper floors on VRBO, they are very nice and Al was quite helpful and knowledgeable regarding things to do in the area, including great hikes.

Very nice house in a wonderful setting. Owners were on-site, but out of the way. House was very comfortable and felt like home almost immediately. Would definitely stay there again if we return to Seward.

Perfect location, beautiful home, spacious and comfortable, wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here 3 nights on our land portion of travel through Alaska the end of July, 2017. My husband and I traveled with our 2 grown children and spouses. We all had more than enough room to relax with the very large living area, private bedrooms as well as our own bathrooms. Al and his wife were so accommodating and friendly, and the home is very clean and comfortable. This is definitely a great place for families or large groups to stay. Highly recommend this beautiful home with amazing views in a wonderful town!

Al and Nicole are wonderful hosts and the house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We wouldn't change one thing about our vacation at this house! It was super clean and way better than the pictures online. Plenty of room for our party of six. Great location within walking distance of several Seward attractions. Al and Nicole were very sweet and quickly responded to our many questions! I give this place 10 stars and would stay there again anytime. My only regret is that we only planned 2 nights in Seward!
