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

Wonderful House w/ Creaky Floors

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Housed our two families for a total of 8 people really well. Plenty of bathrooms and beds. The kitchen was fully stocked and lots of places to put your feet up.

The reason for 4 stars is the floors were extremely creaky and the doors were hard to open and close upstairs. The only thing I would remind you to bring is laundry detergent it is not provided.

Great stay in this nice house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay!

Al, the owner, had emailed us before arriving.

There is a keypad with a code to enter the house, which turned out useful:

the six of us could freely go in and out without a key.

The house is nice and spacious. It has a fully equipped kitchen, and a large and clear living room with huge windows,

and several bathrooms. We needed three rooms for three couples. There is one room downstairs and two rooms upstairs, one at each side of the stairs. In fact there is a fourth room upstairs, which you can access only by traversing one of the upstairs rooms, but we did not need that one. All rooms were nice, the beds were good.

We have spent three nights in the house. We had BBQ the first night (there is a gas BBQ on the porch), did light cooking the second one, and ordered catered food the last one. Altogether three nice evenings.

Not related to the house, but the stay in Seward was great. We did two hikes, the famous Exit Glacier hike which is a must (but challenging), and the Tonsina Point trail, much shorter and little elevation, and nice views of the bay. Going 'downtown' or to the Alaska Sealife Center is a short walk from the house. We did not do a cruise because we had one in Whittier, but we recommend doing one somewhere.

Again, we had a great stay!

Gorgeous views and a perfect host!

  • 5 of 5

Al was the perfect host. He made us feel right at home in his lovely home. He communicated well with us and made sure we were settled in and loving our stay. We had lots of room for the 8 of us and enjoyed our family bonding on our Alaska adventure. This was one of the best experiences we've had on VRBO. Al and his home in Seward was more than what we had expected. Thanks Al!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Anchor House was wonderful. The place was clean, and the most comfortable place we have stayed at. There is a large mud room to keep your fishing gear in and plenty of space in the house for the 6 of us. Great location and great views. We would not look any further for a place to stay, we would book this house again.
