Overview

Seward House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located in the original 1913 Seward town site. Charming and quaint, it has everything you want from a Alaska summer vacation rental.

After a full day of sightseeing, touring, fishing, hiking and shopping, you can relax in our comfortable and fully appointed home-like setting.

Conveniently located in downtown Seward you are steps away from why you came to our historic and exciting town.

Step out our front door for a breathtaking view of Resurrection Bay, walk to the Sea life center for an afternoon of discovery, or visit Brown and Hawkins for home made Gelato and fabulous fudge.

If you like to walk, follow the waterfront towards the Marina or stroll towards Lowell Point for an afternoon of Kayaking or a try at Catching a King or Silver Salmon at the nearby Waterfall.

For those who like to get the kids out of the house and relax, send them to the local library, skate park or movie theater, all within walking distance.

If you prefer to read and relax, sit on the back deck or settle into a comfortable chair and enjoy a book. Games and videos available for the kids.

For Dinner, invite friends and cook dinner on our back deck BBQ or in the fully appointed kitchen. We have what you need from pots, pans, to plates and utensils and a Gas BBQ out back.

Fresh linens await you upon arrival and there is no cleanup required when you leave-Just no dirty dishes, please.

We hope you enjoy our home away from home, it is a paradise retreat we are proud to share!

About Tanguy Libbrecht

Tanguy Relaxing in Anchorage, wishing he was at his Seward House listening to the seagulls and watching Bald Eagles.

Tanguy Libbrecht purchased this house in 2007

Why Tanguy Libbrecht chose Seward

My family and I really enjoyed the serenity and majestic beauty of resurrection bay as well as the friendly people, fishing and wildlife.

The cottage has an unexplainable, simple charm that makes it difficult to leave. Worries melt away while you enjoy yourself with friends and loved ones. Board games, anyone?

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to everything downtown. Quiet, convenient location in a charming seaside home. Home has a warm, historic feel without being formal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Charming and very comfortable, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our overnight stay at this charming old house, perfectly located.

We came by train from Anchorage, a scenic ride not to be missed. The (free) shuttle took us to the house, perfectly located to walk to the shops, restaurants and the famous Sea Life Center and the new Library/ Museum.

The house is very well equipped, comfortable beds, large kitchen, and well decorated, prettier than the pictures!

The owner provided us with good recommendations and returned our phone call promptly .

We will come with friends for a fishing trip and explore the area.

Great spring stay in Seward

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Downtown Seward Cottage. There was plenty of space for the 3 of us (2 big bedrooms plus a smaller bunk room) and the mattresses were comfortable (on the soft side). The kitchen had everything we needed, and more, if you didn't mind looking through cupboards/cabinets. Loved the location - we didn't realize it was so close to the water and to cute shops/restaurants - definitely a plus! Access to grill and porch was great, too. Communication with Tanguy and the local housekeeper was smooth and efficient. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Charming, Comfortable Seward Home Near the Water

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The feel of this sweet home is historic and welcoming. I want to live there, so at least got to spend a night. So much about is just right - the front room for sitting around talking or putting together a puzzle, the dining room for catching a bite, the kitchen and it's old-fashioned cabinetry, the bedrooms and the great beds and two bathrooms. And the place so perfectly situated - steps from the water and a block from the main street- yes I really loved this home.

Cute Vintage House

  • 4 of 5

We loved the vintage feel in this cute house, but we have an appreciation for these things..the house next door was under extensive outside remodeling but it was nice to see it being restored though a little unsightly. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't more clean, crumbs and paint rollers in the fridge, microwave could have been wiped out and table and counters wiped down. A good vacuuming on the couch and a mop on the kitchen floor would be nice too, but the bedding was clean and beds were comfy.

A short walk to the Sea Life Center and the awesome playground. Our 2 year old daughter had lots of room to run and play, bring a child safety gate for the stairs. It was perfect for her to sleep upstairs while we stayed up late.

We would definitely stay again. The owners made it super easy!

Reapeat Guest: This wasn't our first stay in the house. It wont be our last.

  • 4 of 5

We have had the great opportunity of using this little quaint place as a family get away before. We have happily done so again.

Upon arrival the property was clean and all of the linen was fresh. We were able to use the property and not feel like we had to worry that our kids would be a bother after running in from the rain.

It was fun to see the new property next door being worked on and know that two great pieces of Alaska history are going to be cared for by great owners who make their home(s) available to tourists.

Yes, it's an older property. No, it's not like staying in a hotel. No, it isn't a modern kitchen. We see those things and know that the ease of use, great owners, location, and charm are what make it, "just right".

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the downtown house for 2 nights recently. It was great. The house was clean and well stocked. It is an old house and you can tell they have put alot of work into it. Right downtown and nicely decorated. Would definitely stay here again. The owner is very easy to work with.
