Property 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!

Owner info

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.
