Great water taxi ride out to Yurt on an island and we were greeted by the owner. She was warm and welcoming and her son showed us to our Yurt. We kayaked, fished and visited her gallery where our girls bought necklaces. Great pictures and...More
Finally had a chance to stay at this remote "glamping" lodge in Resurrection Bay. The hosts, Dennis and Susan, are attentive, kind and enthusiastic - they clearly want each guest to experience this magical place their way - whether that's enjoying the cozy, private yurt...More
Do not pass go without booking this experience! From the booking experience with Yen Ly to meeting Susan and Dennis on the dock, I do not have enough words to describe how unique and enjoyable our two nights at the cabins were. The yurts exceeded...More
As we pulled up to the jetty, after a half an hour ride in a tinny from Seward, a group of guests greeted us..."welcome to heaven" they said, and as we looked around at our sublime surroundings, I think they just might be right. The...More
This place is magical. It is like glamping but completely unique and an experience of a life time. The owner will pick you up from J dock. You take a water taxi to the orca island. Your cabin is a beautiful well furnished cozy yurt....More
A unique place to stay when visiting Seward Alaska, our nightly rental cabins are comfortable accommodations in a remote setting. Our rates include a 30 minute scenic cruise to the property from Seward as well as all the equipment use including kayaks, stand up paddle boards, rowing skiffs, and more.

Thank you for your inquiry. All of our cabins are Ocean view properties, none of them are inland. Although one cabin does look like it is inland when viewing from the water; once you are on the yurt's deck you see that it is above the water and has the added bonus of being the most private. We do have cabins that overhang the water, but all overlook the water, and all have unbroken views of Resurrection Bay.
We have seven units, and thus our booking system requires the flexibility of arranging cabin allotments closer to the day of arrival. When requests are made we make every attempt to accommodate them. It is however challenging to facilitate guests checking in and out on different days of the week. Therefore we cannot guarantee cabin requests.
We hope that you will use the reviews as a reference; all the cabins are unique in there own way, and we have yet to received a complaint about any of the views from any of our cabins.
In the past we did not have a staff member on grounds. We recognize the need for this and as of last summer we now have an Orca Island Cabins staff on the property at all times. We do not clean fish, although we have the equipment and can help get you set up so you can do so on your own on the dock.
Please feel free to call me directly should you have other questions.
