Definitely a good BNB experience. Location is super convenience. Its right next to the Seward free shuttle that takes you everywhere. Marsha and Mike know so well about the place. The restaurant that Marsha and Mike used to go tastes much better than Rays except for the view. They are so helpful and tell us a lots about locals. Mike's... More

We stayed at the Sunshine House B&B for one night in mid-August. We loved it! It is located on the edge of town, 2 minutes walking from the Waterfront Park, not far from the Sea Life Center. It is 5 minutes drive to the harbor. Lot's pf free street parking is available. The house looks small from the outside but... More

Mike and Marsha put on quite a good show. We didn't get to meet Mike, as school has started and he teaches, but Marsha was a great host. Excellent suggestions for places to eat in town, things to do, etc. And, as others have stated, the breakfasts were amazing. I guess the only criticism is that she prepared alot of... More

Mike, Marsha and Butch are the perfect hosts! We began our Alaska adventure in Seward and the Sunshine House Bed and Breakfast was our home for 3 days. From the very beginning we were warmly welcomed. More like friends in their home than paying guests. Attention has been given to every detail. From the beautiful handmade quilts on the beds... More

Mike and Marsha are the type of B&B hosts that make you wish that they visit YOUR hometown, just so you could return the favor. They are the hosts that adjust their schedule to meet yours, rather than expect you to meet theirs. Whether you are an early morning fisherman or a late-rising night owl, you will have a delicious...

Marsha was the perfect host, cooking the best ever breakfasts, a word of caution though, bring your appetite. We stayed in the blue room which was large enough for the two of us and a couple of large suitcases. The room has a TV and a private bathroom, the shower has very good pressure. We did not spend much time... More

We were greeted warmly by Mike and Marsha. The accommodation is superb, very modern and comfortable. The area is quiet and we slept soundly under one of Marsha's beautiful quilts. Mike cooked our breakfast which was excellent. Mike and Marsha recommended a hike, which was really beautiful. We can highly recommend this comfortable B&B.

We started our trip in Seward. Mike and Marsha were great. They have a nice house that feels warm and comfy. Great location and wonderful breakfast. Mike catches and smokes everything himself. Pretty cool. Have a good summer.
