About Robb

We have lived in Seward for 12 years and are very familiar with the activities within Seward as well as the surrounding area.

Why Robb chose Seward

Our guests enjoy being right across from the ocean in their own private home as well as being in the town of Seward.

What makes this house unique

It is great to walk out the front door and across the street to the ocean. There are several 'resident' sea otters that can be seen from the walking path across the street. It's really nice to be so close to all that Seward has to offer, yet be able to retreat to a quiet, comfortable house.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for us and we were very comfortable all week. We felt at home and never felt unsafe or bothered by noise. The washer and dryer were very much appreciated. Wifi and tv were great. There isn't a lot of storage in the house so we did not unpack but never had a problem finding our belongings. Sitting on one sofa, you have a nice view of the water. We cooked several meals while we were there and had everything we needed. The bedroom is very dark at night for those who are bothered by the long daylight hours. The hot water was amazing. Even though it was a cool week, we never felt need for the heater. We would definitely stay here again.

Seward Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Love this cottage. Plenty of room for the three of us. Lovely decor. A very peaceful home base from all the 4th of July activities. Even though we had a car we walked to boat harbor, to the shops in downtown Seward and along the beach. I highly recommend this rental!

Seward Beachside Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This was a cozy little cottage and our home away from home for 3 days. It was perfect for our family of 4. My kids loved the bunk beds. The cottage was equipped with most things you would need. The cottage is located within walking distance of most places including the Harbor and Sea life Center. It is quiet and you have beautiful views of the mountains from the living room. The owner had provided detailed instructions on accessing the internet, troubleshooting the heating unit and other general things, which was very thoughtful of him. The cottage was clean and the kitchen was well equipped.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Seward for 4 nights post cruise and were so glad we found this property. It is perfectly situated within walking distance of the Harbour at one end of town and the Sea Life Centre at the other. And the owner was very responsive - when we arrived to find the fridge was not working he showed up very quickly with some ice to save our groceries and then came back shortly thereafter with a new fridge!

The house has beds for 4 people but we squeezed in one extra who slept on the comfy lounge with no problems at all (a blow up bed is also available). The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and utensils to enable us to do some cooking as well. Do yourself a favour and skip the high priced hotels and stay here!

Excellent Seward Harbor Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My dad and I came up from Seattle for a Seward Silver salmon fishing trip. The weather and the charter were a bust, but the saving grace was this awesome little hideaway in downtown Seward. This property is super-clean and totally updated with all of the amenities. 2 bedrooms, and a full bath with full kitchen, and living area. All were updated, with coastal interior colors and decor. Cable tv and wifi were nice little adds. There is a washer and dryer for your convenience as well. All in all a very clean and updated property, and am looking forward to staying here again in the future.
