About Jasmine Van Driessche

Deo's Alaskan Cabin...

Is a dream come true for owners Jared & Jasmine Van Driessche. Both grew up in this small town of Seward, Alaska, married in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California and together started traveling the world, one of their greatest passions! Although they visited many places full of new flavors, culture, languages & terrain, they found themselves sharing stories of Alaska's beauty, adventures and soon longed to share their home with others.

It was only in 2012 that a small city in Uganda would soon become a place they would come to love. After a dear friend of theirs recommended they volunteer at Keirungi Children's Village in Kabale, Uganda they wasted no time immersing themselves in the local culture & language that embodied this small orphanage and it's surroundings. Now, those children and all of Keirungi's staff have become family to Jared & Jasmine and there was no doubt they would combine two places on opposite ends of the world to create a warm space to be shared by many travelers alike. Thus, Deo's Alaskan Cabin was born!

But, who is Deo? He is a sweet little boy that stole Jasmine's heart during their first trip. As they watched him grow, his sad story started to fade into the past & a cheeky boy, full of personality started to immerge. His humor, even so young was unlike the rest of the children & the laughter he brought was infectious. Deo opened Jared & Jasmine's hearts, taught them many valuable lessons about life and ultimately inspired them to embody that spirit, always.

Deo, despite his hardships is a happy little boy being well taken care of at Keirungi Children's Village and Jared & Jasmine would like to see to it, that not only him, but ALL the children and staff continue to have what they need. That's why they have decided to donate a percentage of their profits to this awesome children's home, doing big work!

Why Jasmine Van Driessche chose Seward

We're two proud Seward Locals giving back locally & internationally! Jared and Jasmine believe strongly in community, both local and international. They also know you have many choices in choosing accommodation when staying in Seward, so they wanted to share how you'll be making a difference with them!

Deo's Alaskan Cabin will donate a dance scholarship for The Apex Gym to children & youth in need through the Seward Arts Council, as they strongly believe in fostering arts in the community. They will also donate to help Keirungi Children's Village with everyday needs, such as food, labor & education materials in Kabale, Uganda. They hope you'll be a part of their journey!

What makes this cabin unique

Deo's Alaskan Cabin sits on a beautiful piece of property, located close to all the local attractions, yet tucked away to offer the peace & tranquility only Alaska can provide. It's a magical place alive with many different types of birds & wildlife & the sounds of Lost Creek in the distance just kicks it up a notch. Every detail of Deo's Cabin was carefully thought out, you have to experience it to see it's true beauty!

Clean, light and bright cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Great property, we would definitely stay again.

Close to Seward marina and Safeway grocery store, about 10 minutes. Stayed two nights while fishing. Great value. Plenty of towels and blankets. Kitchen had everything one could want for cooking a meal.

The addition of a waffle iron would be perfect!

Super cute little place. Great location in Seward. Quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Owners are very friendly and easy to work with. Jasmine and her mom happily booked a couple of tours for us and even got us a discount. The list of things to do in the area that Jasmine sent us was helpful. Deo's Cabin is very cute, bursting with charm and personal touches. All the necessary kitchen dishes, utensils, and even a few pantry staples like coffee, tea, flour, sugar and spices were provided. Lots of extras in the kitchen! The house was clean and plenty of nice linens were available. The only downside to this sweet place is how small it is. The upstairs loft has quite a bit of room but the master bedroom is pretty tight and casual seating on the main floor is limited to a loveseat and two wooden kitchen table benches. The front porch was nice to sit on but chairs other than metal folding ones would be a plus for relaxing after a long day hiking to Exit Glacier, visiting the Sea Life Center, fishing or sea kayaking...all kinds of fun things to do in Seward. Grab a delicious panini and piece of amazing cheesecake from Zudy's Cafe and head outside to watch the sea otters play. Seward is a beautiful place to visit and Deo's Cabin is a great place to stay!

Highly Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this is a perfect quaint little place! We we're very pleased with the cleanliness and how it was staged. This spot is great if you prefer peace and tranquility amongst nature. It's definitely close to the heart of Seward as well. Our only suggestion would be another portable heater for cool nights (We we're fine with one because it was just my husband and I). Thanks for the timely responses, advice and great communication Jasmine!!! Excellent!

Amazing and cute with a personal touch!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing and cute cabin. Fits perfect for a family of four to five. It had everything we needed inside from coffee to shower necessities to movies to pop in at the end of the night. A personal touch from the owner by having a personalized welcome sign was so needed when we had been on the road for days. Thank you so much for sharing this cabin with us.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a one night stay. My sister and her husband were in town visiting and we didn't want to stay right in Seward during the busy tourist season so I found this place instead. Not only was it much more affordable than getting two hotel rooms in town, but it was much nicer. It is so nicely decorated, we stayed up late playing Yatzee and slept like babies! My sister has already asked me to book it again for their next trip up!
