Quonset Cabin Rentals & WWII Lodging

Sunshine Hut

Sunshine – Quonset Hut

Looking for something different? These original WWII quonset huts were the first homes for many people first moving to Seward in the 1940’s. BUT do not let that fool you, they have been completely remodeled and are very comfortable. As my friend told me that came to Alaska in the 1940’s he would still be living in a quonset hut if the one he had lived in when he first came to Seward was as nice as these. Alaska’s Point of View WWII Quonset Hut, offers a queen bed in the bedroom (the blocks around the bottom have a soft indirect night light that will help you find your slippers or the bathroom in the middle of the night) and 2 pull out sofas in the living area that fold into double beds. A fully equipped (coffee pot, toaster, blender, dishes, pots and pans, etc) kitchen and private bath (with a shower). 2020 newly remodeled with dish washer, new floor, new expanded bathroom. New bathroom now allows access from the bedroom or livingroom.

It is located one block from the bay. With a large deck and charcoal BBQ so you can enjoy the great views of Resurrection Bay and surrounding mountains while relaxing and cooking up dinner. Yes, the city’s maintenance department is located between our quonset and the awesome views you will enjoy. Please look over the city of Seward’s poor placement of their maintenance department, the great view is still there and no one can take it away.

There is a flat screen tv in the living area with cable tv. In the bedroom there is an older tv with a VCR player and plenty of wonderful videos. The internet is great and works well.

Originally this WWI quonset hut was built for lodging for the USO entertainers that came to entertain the troops. So far the one famous movie star that I have heard of that stayed there was Loren BaCall. Of course it has been updated and given out special touch to make to another Alaska’s Point of View memory maker.

We hope you will also enjoy our creative decor from unicorn spit kitchen cabinets to stained glass bathroom and entry door to other interesting art works. You will find these units to be very spacious with a big plus of our on demand hot water. No problem, you will never run out.

Multi- night discounts and cash discounts! We are a non-smoking unit, but you are welcome to smoke on the deck as long as you close the door and windows so the smell does not go into the suite.  Click here for rates.
