DO NOT MAKE ANY PAYMENTS THROUGH WESTERN UNION

Built in 1920 and remodeled in 2012, Sea Star Cottage is a charming family get away in historic downtown Seward, Alaska. The cottage is ideally located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, galleries, and the Alaska SeaLife center. Marine wildlife tours and fishing charters depart from the boat harbor less than a mile away. The view from the living room is of Resurrection Bay and the mountains beyond. Behind the cottage, watch hikers make their way up the rugged Mount Marathon trail. Cottage guests will enjoy lovely views, a fully-equipped, updated kitchen, and two cozy bedrooms with restored original hardwood floors. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen bed and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full sized lower bed and a twin on top. There is a pull-out sleeper in the living area to accommodate extra guests. A dining table seating six provides a great place to enjoy meals with a view.

About Christina

Alaska has been our home for 15 years. We enjoy the mountains, the water and small town life which is why we love Seward.

Why Christina chose Kenai Peninsula

The Sea Star Cottage is one of Seward's original homes, built in 1920 and renovated in 2012. Seward is a place where the mountains, the water and history all come together. Sea Star allows us to share the beauty of Seward with all who visit.

Thank you so much. Y’all really make this house feel like an Alaskan home. Everything is kept so nice and tidy! I just love the beach theme too!! It is easy to see that you two put a lot of effort to make this house as comfortable as possible. I will definitely recommend this house to anyone I know! Thank you again.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A quaint little cottage in the heart of Seward. Easily walk to restaurants and most activities. Very comfortable home to live in for a few days. Owners have done a nice job of updating the place while maintaining the charm of the house. Absolutely perfect for our stay in Seward!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the sea star before with our family. Everything is always perfect upon arrival. Being able to stay there makes us feel so at home!! We will continue to come and stay at the sea star each year and continue our family tradition of visiting Seward!

Perfectly curated cottage with wonderful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best equipped VRBO I have ever stayed. It had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes/gadgets, we had all the toiletries needed, and it was in immaculate condition. The location is perfect and downtown is right out your front door. Don't forget to eat a meal at The Cookery while you are here--by far the best food of our trip so far and the owners and staff were great.

Great Location. Short walk to Sea Life Center, restaurant's, and Harbor. Kitchen was well equipped. Bedrooms were fine. Enough hangers to hang clothes. Neat picture book with pictures of before and after renovation. Great washer and dryer. Living room comfortable. Safeway's was a 3 min drive. Would definitely stay here again.
