Birch Bay condo description
This beautiful condo sleeps 6 and is family friendly. The warm indoor pool and hot tub make cold rainy weekends much more fun. Lots of books and movies in the unit for your use so come up for a nice relaxing weekend or week long stay.
This is your home away from home. A fully furnished condominium for your vacation enjoyment. This super clean, two bedroom ground floor unit has a nautical theme and a beautiful view of Birch Bay and the San Juan Islands. Being that this is our personal vacation property, you will find a warm and inviting atmosphere loaded with many personal extras you won't typically find in a standard rental property.
Birch Bay is known for its warm shallow waters, long sandy beaches, and a tide that seems to go out forever. It is also popular for clam digging and crabbing. The Bay is a wonderful spot for a quiet weekend getaway in the off-season, a chance to show your stuff at the New Years Polar Bear Swim, enter a sandcastle building contest, host a family reunion,or just lie on the beach and read a book. It is a favorite place for bicycling with easy navigation and beautiful scenery.
Birch Bay is located just 10 minutes south of the US/Canadian Border and 2 hours north of Seattle. Just 12 miles to the east is the quaint town of Lynden, where berries are grown to ship all over the country, and festivals are celebrated around the harvest time. It is also home to the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds and has wonderful shopping on main street.
Ferndale is located about 10 miles to the south were you can try your luck in the casino. Bellingham is just a few more miles south and has everything from skiing to fishing, and is home to Western Washington University. Vancuver BC is less than 1 hour away, where you can stroll around Stanley Park or shop at Granville Island.
We supply all towels, pillows, blankets, and linens. The condo development offers a club house with indoor heated pool and hot tub, ping pong tables, foosball, racquetball court and tennis courts.
Numerous books and movies available for your reading and viewing pleasure. Condo is equiped with 3 TV's, DVD players, VCR, stereo, and wifi.
The waterslide park, go carts, and put-put golf are all within walking distance.
Our past guests comments reveal our commitment to quality and comfort:
'We would happily recommend this condo to any family. Our kids (5 and 8) were as delighted with it as we were. Everything seemed to have been thought of! Little items that you might not travel with, like sugar and oil, were in the cabinets. When we needed bandaids, they were already there in the bathroom. Maps of the local area were near the phone. Having a washer and dryer was terrific. We had a contest each day on the beach to see who could find the most attractive stones and shells. There were many great blue herons, but also scoters (3 species), harlequin ducks, and wading shorebirds. It was only 15 minutes to Bellingham, where we found the well-stocked natural and organic Food Co-op.'
'We had an awesome time and equally awesome weather. The condo is tastefully decorated in a nautical theme and is well stocked with all of the comforts of home. It is just a short walk to the beach and has a wonderful view from the back patio. We hope to return soon! Thanks Karen for everything.'
'We had a fabulous time staying at the condo in Birch Bay! There is a breathtaking view of the bay from the patio. The condo itself is very well decorated and fully equipped with just about anything you can think of. The indoor pool is one of the best we've ever used. It was very clean and surprisingly warm as well. There are many things to do nearby, but we chose to stay planted and enjoy lots of family time playing games, watching movies, swimming, and walking along the beach. We will definitely recommend this condo to our friends and family. We plan to stay in the condo again sometime soon.'
'My stay at this Birch Bay condo was so pleasant and peaceful. All the amenities were near by, the community was friendly, and the condo was perfect for some R&R, the view was good, every necessity was provided and a great spa was just down the road. Super beach, not crowded when I was there. The condo owners were extremely pleasant and easy to work with. GREAT STAY. I plan to bring the grand kids back up. Thanks!'
Book early for this popular unit.
See you at the Bay!

This is our second year at this condo. We enjoy being right across from the bay and the location is great as we can walk wherever we need to go.

wonderful home at Birch Bay
wonderful home at Birch Bay
We were delighted with our stay there. The owner was very honest and nice to work with. The home was clean, well-maintained, and well-furnished. Our kids loved the home, the pool and clubhouse, and the beach right across the street. It was a wonderful little vacation. We have since moved from Washington, but if we ever get the chance we would love to come back again.

Hidden Gem....Guest comment entered by owner
Hidden Gem ..., January 4, 2013 By John Mason (Federal Way, WA USA) I cannot begin to explain the joy we encountered throughout the whole process of getting into this property. The owners were extremely flexible and easy to work with. We booked at the very last minute in the middle of the holiday season which is just unheard of today. I was a little concerned that it may be a hole in the wall, but to my splendor it was so much more than a hobbit hole. This condo was elaborately stocked with almost anything that a beachcomber could ever want or need. I went with a friend and two teenage sons and had a spectacular time. The kids loved the clubhouse and pool. The condo is perfectly centered in the middle of birch bay and close to all the local attractions. We drove up and I didn't start the vehicle until we got ready to leave. Everything is within walking distance including shops, restaurants, grocery store, and state park. The beach is just across the street. The bedrooms had more than enough storage space for luggage and clothes and still be able to walk around in the room. The kitchen was roomy and had plenty of space to prepare a large meal. WIFI is readily available. The living room had a nice TV, DVD player, books, magazines, movies, board games, etc. etc. I will definitely be back for such a relaxing vacation. Thank you so much, John M.

We loved our stay at Birch Bay. Our condo was such a wonderful surprise! It really was our home away from home. My husband and I enjoyed drinking our coffee while watching the ocean. We really were only steps away from the beach. Our view was amazing and the condo itself was nicely updated and very clean. We felt right at home. Thank you to the Andersons for a wonderful holiday!

Karen could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The condo is right across the street from the bay. Pool and hot tub were great, but the game room could use some updating! The bed in the second bedroom was rather hard - but we would certainly stay here again. It is lovingly decorated with all the amenities you could ask for.

We were lucky enough to be able rent this condo over memorial weekend. It was lovely, so relaxing and peaceful. The condo was in the perfect location for shops and restuarants and just across the road from the beach. It's very nicely decorated and extremely comfortable, my husband had the best nights sleep he'd had in a long time. The condo had everything we could possibly need, we almost wished the weather wasn't so good so that we could explore the movie, games and book collections more. We had great weather though so were able to take long walks on the beach, we went swimming in the club house, played table tennis, there was more to do than we had time for in a weekend. The last night we watched the sunset at the state park while roasting hot dogs and marshmallows on the fire. Made it very difficult to return home and we can't wait to take a break there again.

The perfect condo for the weekend! As comfortable and clean as our own home. The condo was well stocked with movies and games for kids, the kitchen had every accessory you could need. The beach could be seen thru the back slider and was close enough our two girls could go by themselves. The beds and linens were very comfortable and the home was nicely decorated. We were very pleased with the condo and will definitely be back!

The photos of the condo are exactly as we found it. Very clean, comfortable, well organized, and updated furnishings. The location was just right and we really enjoyed our mini family reunion. The indoor pool was a great bonus as well. We would most definitely recommend this particular condo and will hopefully be back for a visit in the future.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: We are a family of 4 which includes 2 boys. Karen is a registered nurse and Mike is in commercial construction. The boys are big time into baseball and we love to play in tournaments in the Blaine/Lynden area so that we can also enjoy Birch Bay at the same time. The ocean is a love of ours and Birch Bay has a great family atmosphere.
Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay:
After searching for about 3 years we found Birch Bay. Karen went up for a girls weekend and fell in love with the place. Close to home, with no mountains to cross or ferries to ride, makes this a great weekend getaway.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are so many favorits in Birch Bay it's hard to list them all. Tops on the list are the beach activities: crabbing, clamming, building sand castles, walking the beach searching for agates, and watching the sunset over the water. Biking the area is one of Karen's favorites because of the beautiful scenery and easy navigation from Birch Bay to Blaine, Lynden, Ferndale and even Bellingham. The boys favorites include the water park, C Shop, and the Family Fun Center which are all within walking distance. Favorite rainy day and relaxation activities are swimming in the clubhouse pool and just hanging out in the condo watching movies and playing games.
