                    We just returned from an absolutely perfect long weekend, celebrating our friend's 50th birthday. The accommodations were wonderful for two couples - the kitchen was ideal for cooking a meal for eight and the view from the living room is spectacular. The hosts are close by if you need them, but you don't even notice you are sharing the property with anyone else. We can't wait to go back in the Summer to take advantage of the beautiful backyard and deck.

                    Our family of three generations stayed here and we were super happy with everything about this house. The home is beautifully finished with excellent appliances and gorgeous detailing. The location is great and we enjoyed the views from every room. The place was very clean on our arrival and all the linens etc.. were really nice and well stocked. My only suggestion would be to have a few more basic items stocked in the kitchen. Our group likes to cook and it is always a welcome addition when an owner has oil, vinegar, and a few spices in the kitchen.

                    My wife and I stayed here while visiting our WWU daughter, who liked it so much she stayed with us rather than at her own place. One evening we used the new Weber gas grill to prepare fresh salmon on the large deck for our daughter and her friends. They enjoyed dining on the deck overlooking the beautiful back yard and were enthusiatic about the flat. While morning coffee on the deck is great, it is even better to take an enjoyable 15 to 20 minute walk on a nature trail to Woods Coffee Shop on Boulevard Park. Fairhaven and its great bookstores and restaurants are a hilly 30 minute walk away. The Cliff House restaurant is right across the street. WWU is straight up the hill as the crow flies but can be reached only by meandering through an unsolveable maze of streets, providing a great opportunity for viewing early 20th century architecture. Cv and Sheryl have not overlooked anything in their efforts to make this a great getaway flat. We have found our home away from home when visiting our daughter. (Only one caution -- if you cannot negotiate stairs, this place is not for you.)

                    We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 10days in October when visiting our son and family. We had sun shine, fog and rain the apartment was cozy and had a beautiful relaxing view of the bay. Everything you could wish for was there. Spotlessly clean, with plenty of towels and a washer and dryer. On Demand TV. DVD player and movies, XBox and books in every room. The back garden and flowers,chickens, a Koi pond and a wonderful grey cat the would stroll by. A great kitchen for cooking if you wished. We managed to get our legs back in shape walking the stairs - great exercise, The only thing if you are older and cannot manage to carry heavy bags up 2 flights of stairs you should think about it... Or not bring heavy bags... I would opt for the last one as this is a must stay apartment. Looking forward to out next visit

                    My husband, daughter and I were looking for weekend get away from Vancouver and found this great place that fit all our needs. Our daughter loved the Koi pond, pet chickens, trundle bed and air guitar; my husband appreciated the stainless Viking gas range and all the custom cherry cabinetry details throughout and I loved the cosy king bed suite and bay view bath soaker tub bathroom we hope to use next time. This spacious home and its large south facing deck would comfortably house any family in style. The friendly owners have taken great care to cover all the details that make a get away enjoyable. We look forward to visiting this charming home again. Shannon & Harvey

                    I have visited twice now to shop with family and friends. It is such a beautifully thought out residence. The view is superb, including from the soaker tub under the eaves. Immaculate and in excellent repair. The layout allows for night people and day people to co exist comfortably. I am a vrbo owner and Chris and Sheryl have certainly raised the bar on this type of accommodation.

                    I would say that this house had all the comforts of home, but it is so much nicer! The owners have put a lot of care and attention into every detail about this property. The beautiful home is equipped with absolutely everything you could need, and in a very thoughtful way. My family of three luxuriated in the extra room. We enjoyed the living room and soaking tub with views of the bay; chef's kitchen; excellent comfy beds; private deck; and gorgeous gardens. We felt completely private, yet the owners were steps away when we had questions. The chickens, cat and koi pond in the backyard provide additional entertainment. The flat is very convenient to restaurants, shops and parks, and also is well located for accessing points north and south of town. (The home is on a hillside and involves a fair amount of stairs. Everything about it outweighs this, but should be noted if stairs are difficult.) Highlights of the area for us included Mt. Baker (Artist Point), Whatcom Park, PNW trail, and the WWU campus. We are looking forward to the next opportunity we will have to stay in this beautiful home. Thank you so much for providing such a great property and warm hospitality!

                    This flat demonstrates the owners' care and generosity at every turn. From the high-end appointments to individually chosen antiques, the place invites you to relax and enjoy. The outdoor space is as impressive as the inside, with adorable chickens, cat, and koi sharing the beautiful garden. The location couldn't be more ideal- midway between downtown Bellingham and Fairhaven, with the gorgeous bay laid out right in front of you. It's a beautiful area- don't miss Whatcom Falls. Everything we needed was there inside, located logically and easily accessible. Super clean. The owners were present downstairs and available for consultation and also maintained appropriate privacy. Two caveats: there are many steps leading to the front door- could be difficult for people with mobility issues. And there is no door on the master bedroom. It sits at the top of a stairway, so is private visually, but sounds from downstairs are easily audible.

                    Our family group of five stayed a full week at the Flat on South Hill in Bellingham. Each day we went sightseeing, and each night we returned "home" to the flat. The comfort and layout of the flat, made it easy to feel at home. The morning vistas from the living room were only surpassed by the sunsets. The owners seem to have thought of everything! Some nights we grilled, some nights we prepared dinner in that amazing kitchen. When we wanted to eat out, the owners pointed us to a local restaurant with great food,(Boundary Bay) The flat added so much more to our vacation. Our base camp to explore Washington and lower BC. We have stayed in vacation rentals in many locations, and the flat compares favorably with those in Rome and Paris.

                    This was our first experience with VRBO and it far exceeded our expectations. The flat is so comfortable I could live in it permanently. Such a beautifully decorated classic home everything in it feels new and absolutely spotless. The living room window was my favorite location to watch the ever-changing bay activity - what a joy! The garden behind the house was a real treat and watching the chickens go about their day brought more smiles from our family. Can't wait to return.

                  About the owner: This rather large King crab came to dinner with a couple of his friends when we where visiting our son and his family in Korea. Most of the time we are in Bellingham maintaining the property you see in the pictures. My wife and I live in the downstairs flat.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bellingham:
                  We have owned this classic home for 13 years and have made the upper flat available as a VRBO property. It took a while to put everything in order but the work has been worth it. The photos tell it all. The flats are completely seperate from each other
