Overview

Seward House Rental Photos and Description

Duplex, downstairs 3bd/2/ba sleeps 6-9, upstairs 2 bd/2 ba sleeps 4-6 -15 total

New May 2015... our adjoining second rental is available enabling us to host groups up to 15. Planning a wedding or family reunion? Rent both the upstairs and downstairs units to give your group space to enjoy each others' company but still have space to spread out. The second rental is only available to large groups wanting both units.

Our location can't be beat and our amenities are top notch. You can start your day taking in the fantastic view of the fjord from the breakfast nook. Relax with a drink in your rocking chairs on the front deck as you watch the ships set sail in Resurrection Bay. The Seward House is sure to enhance your Alaskan experience and provide real value in your lodging needs.

Downstairs is a clean, comfortable three bedroom, two bath vacation rental. There are six beds in all, with two in each room. This unit comfortably sleeps 6-9. The large well equipped kitchen makes cooking the catch of the day a breeze, or use our Kamado grill. Most visitors make use of our free washer and dryer to freshen up and use our free WI-FI to send out fabulous vacation pics.

Our central location with plenty of offstreet parking for your boat and/or vehicle makes for a great home base as you explore our community. Walk a block toward the ocean and hit the bike path which leads to the harbor in one direction and The SeaLife Center in the other. Three blocks to the west of us is the trailhead for Mount Marathon. You can leave the front door and hike directly up either the Marathon Bowl or the Race Trail!

We are family friendly at The Seward House. There is a pack and play in the unit, as well as

a high chair. There are not one, but TWO playgrounds within a block and a half!

If you have a large group, please consider adding the upstairs unit to your stay. The newly remodeled space offers 2 bedroom/2 bath with an additional sleeping space in the open loft. A full kitchen, laundry and WI-FI round out the amenities. The view from the upstairs unit is amazing! This space sleeps 4-6 comfortably. We will only rent this space to groups that are booking the downstairs unit as well for our initial season with availability from late May to mid August.

When it's not otherwise occupied we live onsite in the other half of the duplex, so please feel free to stop by for a cup of sugar and a tall Alaskan tale!

Clean, Friendly, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at the Seward House. It was refreshing to have a wonderfully clean place to stay after the drive from Anchorage! The owners were very friendly and greeted us the evening we arrived. The house perfectly suited our needs and we will definitely refer to our friends! We had beautiful weather and the property is within walking distance of Seward shops and the Sea Life Center. It was a great place for kids, since the unit has a pack and play and high chair for use. Our party even ended up catching a 232 lb halibut on a fishing charter. We had a wonderful experience and would definitely stay here again!!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Leanne was a pleasure to work with both before and during the rental of this house. She was even super sweet when we got there and left us locally made salt water taffy (which we actually went and bought more to bring home). She was there when we got to the house and recommended restaurants for us to go to. The house was perfectly as described and worked so nicely for our family. We had 9 people in our party, including older people and children. We were completely comfortable. If I get back to Seward, I would most definitely look to stay at this rental again.

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Seward House. We had four adults and two children and found there was enough space for everyone and it was ideally located. We could see glaciers from the dining room table and it was an easy walk to both the harbour and the shops. And most importantly, it was also within walking distance of two playgrounds! The property was clean, well maintained and we would highly recommend.

Great Family trip with room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great experience at the Seward House. Leanne was really friendly and helpful. Great location. Each room has a double and twin bed, which worked well for our group of eight ranging from 4 years old to 70+. Everyone enjoyed watching the boars come in sitting in the lounge chairs in the deck. The location and hospitality really made the trip special. Loved having a kitchen, which saved us lots of money and time. The washer and drier could come in handy with small kids or a longer visit.

Mount Marathon Run week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room. Great location especially to downtown where all the festival and run events were. Walkable to Harbor but it is a bit of a walk. Leann was so easy to work with. Beds were comfortable and plentiful. Kitchen had plenty of room and all you probably need. Seward was one of our favorite places on the trip. After fending off mosquitos for the first ten days for some reason they weren't even noticable in Seward. Perfect house for multi family Sleeps 6 very comforatbly and wih kids 9 would be fine also. The house was well kept and clean. Nice dining room table. I think it had only one TV in main room but watched it so little it was no issue. I would highly recommend this property . Rate was very fair especially for the festival period when hotel rooms are sold out a year in advance . Aquarium was very nice and an easy walk. Only need 1-2 hours to cover it. Day cruises out of Seward were well done and saw tons of wildlife. Why the cruise ships take people from here to Anchorage right way is a mystery to me. I would highly recommend spending a day or more here as there is plenty to do . Anchorage while much larger has no where near the charm of Seward. As a first time user of VRBO i was pleasantly surprised at how well it all went. Thanks Leann.
