We loved this place!
Has a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. Outdoor deck. Place was very quiet and private and clean. Beautiful wood floors. Perfectly true to it's description. Had everything we needed for cooking at home. Ten minute walk to supermarket or 3 minute car ride.
The property was fine and the view was great. Just a couple blocks from the grocery store and 5 minutes to town. It was a bit chilly at night and a couple throw blankets would have been nice to cover the cracking leather couch which was cold to begin with. There was almost exactly 4 of every dish in the cupboard which was a bit light especially if you have friends over. A few more would be nice. There was no closet to hang our dress clothes in which was a disappointment to the wife. She ended up ironing before we went out and that got old with her in a hurry. All in all it it an ok rental for a week but lacks comfort and necessities. I would stay here again as I know now what to bring to be more comfortable.
Above the Sea!
This rental is so well located for the Cross Trail connection. It has a great view and is efficient and clean but minimal. Sleeping is really for two in a large shared bed unless the couch is acceptable for one. There is no closet space so bring your own hangers and make do. The owners are on the premises with friendly exchanges and some home projects.
Great place to stay!
Exactly what you're looking for if you stay in sitka. Hot tub with a view of the sound and Edgecombe? Yes please. Better if you have a car. About 2 miles from town. But there is a bus and taxi costs 7. Great place, awesome bed. Perfect for a couple.
Comfortable, great view!
While the weather wasn't great during our stay, we still enjoyed the view! Above the Sea is clean, comfortable, and cozy, with plenty of added amenities - binoculars, books about the area, grocery staples (milk, eggs, cheese, coffee, spices, and more), a large couch, chair, and nice-sized table. Great bedding and towels. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on EVER! I would agree with another reviewer, that a throw blanket or two would be nice, as it does get chilly in the evenings. We had a car, so getting around was easy - it's not that far to downtown. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it without hesitation.
Loved staying here!
Had a wonderful stay at this rental! The view was amazing, and the place was nice and clean. There was a pair of binoculars to be able to look out into the ocean which was great. Great little place to enjoy the stay, and not too far from downtown. Loved staying here and plan to stay again!
What a fabulous place! The family who owns Above the Sea was more then helpful when asked. Otherwise we never saw them. The view couldn't be beat. And the hot tub was a pleasant place to relax watch eagles fly by and sit on the top of trees, after a day of hiking and kayaking. I would give this above 5 stars. I hope that we will have the opportunity to come back. Thanks you for all you did to make out vacation of a life time that much more special!!
Wonderful, beautiful home
What a wonderful, beautiful at home feeling place to stay with a view to die for. The only things that we found fault in was it didn't have a washer and dryer and also it had no closet to hang garments. Other than that we got by just fine. It was magnificent... Note: the owner is working on adding both these.. WHV
Above the Sea
Lots to see and do in Sitka. It rained the whole time I was at above the sea. Was hoping for one pretty sunset or an eagle in the tree but it didn't happen. Chose the wrong days.
Go fot it!
Spectacular view toward the volcano and over the sound from the windows and from the hot tub! Very nice and comfortable apartment. Wi-fi worked great. Great to have a kitchen and the large grocery just a couple of blocks away. Highly recommended!
