I do not know what else to tell you that other reviewers do not. First they make you feel at home, like family. When we arrived Marsha wanted to help me with our baggage; I refused, they are too heavy for you! Yes they accommodate to your needs or plans without any hesitation, You have to tell them at what...

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.

Without a shadow of a doubt, staying with Marsha and Mike was the highlight of our trip to Alaska! They are genuinely two of the loveliest people I have ever met who straight away made us feel right at home! The room is so cosy and the bed is soooo comfortable. Attention to detail does not stop there, the breakfast... More

I'm a bit hesitant to write this rave of a review as I don't want Mike & Marsha to be booked when I return to Alaska! I don't think this could be a more perfect place. Mike & Marsha are lovely hosts, breakfasts are amazing (they even managed to accommodate my picky vegetarian sister), beds are comfy, and the location... More

I was so tired from the day's activities, and got a ride on the kenai fjords shuttle to the b&b. Mike and marsha were very helpful, welcoming, and informative. I had the downstairs... More

We spent 3 nights in Sunshine House in July and had a marvellous stay with Marsha and Mike who are so kind and always ready to help. Mike is great cook, all was delicious, especially the home made salmon. We really appreciated the breakfast time discussing with them and feeling as if we were at home. We highly recommend this...

We stayed in 5 different places in Alaska from Anchorage to Homer to Seeard to Denali. A Sunshine House was definitely the best place. We had the upstairs room which was very comfortable. The small fridge was an extra bonus. We had 3 breakfasts and each one was unique not to mention delicious. Marsha and Mike were very gracious hosts.
