The house was very clean and well stocked. It is small but worked out very well for the 3 of us. The location was very convenient for anything you might want to do in Seward. Carol was great in communicating and responding to our needs. All and all it was just perfect for our us and we would certainly stay again if we return!
Loved this little house. Incredibly convenient. I highly recommend staying here. There's one high window that doesn't have a shade, so if you're going in high summer you might find it fairly bright at night to sleep in the loft. But don't despair! Fortunately, the ceiling in the loft is low, and we used thumb tacks to hang a sheet in front of the bed to block the light. Worked just fine.
We stayed at the Seward Birdhouse for three days in June 2017, and loved it.
The Seward Birdhouse is perfectly located right in town and a 2 minute drive to the boat docks, shopping and restaurants. Three of us stayed here and it was our home away from home, it has everything you need, very neat and clean and has a washer and dryer that came in handy. Also it was very quiet, and Carol the owner is very easy to work with, either by phone or e-mail. I got up early one morning and looked out the kitchen window and there was a cruise ship going by, yes the water is only a couple streets over. Mountains are all around, out the front, out the back. We loved our stayed at the Seward Birdhouse
After a week sharing hotel rooms with 8 and 11 year old grands, it was a joy for us all to have private space; the kids loved the loft. Very convenient location in Seward. Short taxi ride from the drop-off of both the Anchorage bus or train. The cottage is 2 blocks from the playground in the city park, 4 easy blocks from restaurants (Apollo was a great find) and the aquarium, and about 8 from the small boat harbor and more restaurants (Roys, more upscale dining) in this very walkable town. We stayed for 2 nights before a cruise so it was great that Carol provides a washer/dryer allowing us to board with all clean clothes - and she provided detergent. We only ate breakfast, and did not cook, but everything one would need to do so is there - plus, Carol provided coffee and tea with all the fixings. Birdhouse was a great find I highly recommend it.
This was our second stay in the Birdhouse. And we hope to return again next year. For 3 or 4 people it's comfortable and couldn't be better located for enjoying the downtown restaurants, shops, and Sealife Center. The whole cottage is very clean and well kept up. The kitchen is fully stocked with whatever you need for cooking meals if that is your plan. The wi-fi connection is fast and reliable. The owner Carol is always available by phone or email. We really appreciated her allowing us to drop in early on arrival day.
My family stayed in birdhouse for 3 nights. It's a cozy warm home made our Seward trip more enjoyable. The view from the house is wonderful! I like the different light from the windows.
The owner Carol is very responsive and sweet. She wrote emails beforehand making sure everything is taken cared of. I had stayed with many rental houses, often found lacking of shampoo, filter or cooking oil. You will find every needed things in birdhouse.
Will definitely choose birdhouse again next time.
My family and I stayed at the Seward Birdhouse in June 2017. It is a lovely house, fully furnished and very comfortable. It was a perfect stop for us in the middle of our two weeks of travels through Alaska. I highly recommend this house. Thanks
