“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2008

Stayed 3 nights during our stay in Seward. We stayed in the studio suite. Very comfortable room. Clean with a lot of extras. Great muffins and fruit every morning. Debra has thought of everything. She was a very good hostess. This place is a great alternative to a hotel. One stain glass window that doesn't have a cover for it, making it difficult to block out the light.
The website makes the studio suite appear to sit alone. But the truth is that the room is attached to her residence. There is a door that connects this room to her kitchen.
Overall this was a wonderful place to stay, and I would highly recommend.

  • Liked — Clean, comfortable room. Great bed. Good breakfast
  • Disliked — too much light.

Found Alaskan POV on the internet while searching for a place to stay. It was a wonderful. The rates were reasonable and it was much nicer than a hotel. So detailed and personalized without being cluttered. Deb had muffins, fruit, candy and all kinds of goodies in there for us. We didn't get a chance to use the hot tub, but we did enjoy the gas fireplace. The bed was so comfy we didn't want to get up in the morning. I have already recommended this place to several people. Also, Deb will assist you with your travel plans in the area - boat trips, etc.

  • Liked — It was quiet and private
  • Disliked — no room service (LOL)

We stayed in Alaska's Point of View Studio Suite for 4 nights. We found Debra beyond helpful, friendly, and a great host. The room was clean, comfortable, the bathtub awesome. Debra went above and beyond to help us and make our stay fabulous. Alaska's point of view will also book nearby accomodations, we stayed at Annie's Anchor Inn, an apartment style accomodation, it was also great.

Just got back from a much needed weekend vacation to seward and stayed at Alaska POV. LOVED IT!! We live in anchorage and had a spur of the moment weekend off together. Rare when your husband is in the army and works crazy shifts. Booked the studio suite last minute and got a fantastic price. Debra had gone to anchorage for the day and left the keys for us to pick up. I work the front desk at a hotel in anchorage, so I tend to be a touch picky. We arrived late afternoon/early evening (we stopped at beluga point on the way down) and were ready to grill. The grill was a bit dirty and the handle was broken, but we didn't mind very much. The room was very nicely decorated. I loved the agate slices in the walkway and the windows. "Kitchen" area consisted of a microwave, dishes, utensils, 2 coffee makers, fruit and muffin basket, teas, coffees, popcorn, hot cocoa, sugars, cereals, and mini fridge with milk and juice. Milk was in a box, not a jug. That was a new experience for me. Debra's dog, Pandi, welcomed us to the house and promptly adopted us. Very sweet dog. The first bath in the jacuzzi (the main reason I booked) was chilly. Debra fixed it, no problem. Subsequent baths were heavenly. Gas fireplace was awesome and very warm. Bathroom was nice. Bed was incredible although I'm not sure it was a queen. (Couldn't tell for certain) Very soft, warm and inviting. I loved the quilt too. Not what I would call walking distance to the small boat harbor, otherwise fine. Overall, a GREAT time. Would (and will) definitely recommend to couples or singles.

  • Liked — The bed, grill, and dog

We almost always rely on Tripadvisor when booking our accommodation, but took a chance with this one as there were no reviews available. However we struck gold with this little place! We stayed in the studio suite, which had its own seperate entrance, jacuzzi bath in the bedroom, and private bathroom with shower.

The suite was beautifully decorated, and had a fantastic feature window which really made the room even more unique. The bed was really comfortable too.

Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, muffins, pastries and cereals, delivered to the room by Debra, the owner. Debra was very helpful and happy to pre-arrange excursions etc if required. The location was excellent - a reasonable view of Resurrection bay and the mountains, and was easy walking distance to downtown.

Highly recommended!
