About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)


Built in 1920 and remodeled in 2012, Sea Star Cottage is a charming family get away in historic downtown Seward, Alaska.

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.

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 Seward

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.

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.

Christmas Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Headed down to Seward from Fairbanks, Alaska, for a few days over Christmas break and had a fantastic time! The house was perfect for myself and two children (ages 10 and 7). They LOVED the buoy swing in the yard, and I loved that they had their own room, and we had plenty of space to spread out and not drive each other crazy. The kitchen had everything we could need, and the house was immaculate and well appointed. The location is great for walking to the coast, the Alaska SeaLife Center, and coffee at Resurrection Art. Everything was also very quiet. I would highly recommend this property. Thank you for a great stay!

Wonderful Gem!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was impeccably clean, neat, comfortable and the bed, oh WOW, great sleep. There was nothing left out. Many extras in the kitchen were helpful. Location and parking were great. I would definitely recommend this little cottage to family and friends, and if ever back in the area this will be my first choice.
