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!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Deo's cabin. The location was perfect - close to attractions, yet far enough removed to be peaceful and quiet.

The cabin is clean and modern, but maintains a rustic feel. The kitchen was well supplied, plenty of hot water, decent WIFI signal and comfortable beds were all wonderful amenities. Stocking brochures and game in the cabin was also a nice touch.

The location is great and made for an easy ride to the attractions we did while in the area. It was a short ride to the Sealife Center, Seavey's Ididaride, Exit Glacier and the harbor to grab the Kenai Fjord or Major Marine tour boats.

The back story of the cabin and it's name is also touching and inspirational. Am happy to contribute to your cause, Jasmine! Thanks...

Awesome cabin secluded near Seward!

  • 5 of 5

This place was seriously awesome! It is tucked away about 10 minutes outside Seward, and is literally in the wilderness. I think this might be my most favorite place that i have stayed in a long long time! The cabin, almost really isnt a true cabin because it is so nice! Really well decorated, extremely clean, very cute, and can sleep 5 people easily! I really couldnt have asked for a better experience. If you are looking for good fishing in summer months, i recommend checking out mcdonalds. It is a secluded park where the seward ocean bay flows into a stream where you can legally snag salmon.

Absolutely delightful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Deo's cabin and it was wonderful! The cabin in cozy and inviting with warm modern Alaskana touches throughout. We were very happy with the amount of space available for guests, though there were only two of us for this stay, we will definitely be back with friends in the future! On top of the great atmosphere and amenities, we really love the story behind the cabin and that the proceeds go towards Deo and his friends! We look forward to more trips to this lovely space!
