About Sally

We raised our children in the NW and sent one child to WWU. Since then both daughters and their families have moved to Bellingham. So guess what?, we recently moved to Bellingham just to watch the grandkids grow up and enjoy the beauty of the area. In Bellingham, we are involved in kayaking, hiking, book clubs, ukulele, and volunteering. We love it!

Sally purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sally chose Bellingham

We chose this location because it is CLOSE to everything, including our two daughters! We can walk one mile to downtown and Farmer's Market. We can get on a bike trail, walk to a gym, go to stores and restaurants, and visit the Visitor's Center in 1/2 mile. In other words, it is a perfect location!

What makes this condo unique

Past guests seem to love our property. They find it so convenient and like a home away from home. They love our fenced-in yard, off-street and well-lit parking, beautiful interior design, and lovely kitchen. And they can drive in a few minutes to anywhere they want!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you for our delightful stay in your condo. It is wonderful and we especially appreciated the great beds! The location is fabulous for everywhere we like to go in town and to spectacular Whatcom Falls and Chuckanut Drive. Hope to come back!

Clean, cute and quiet!! Also close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

I will come back for sure! The condo feels like a little home and is cozy and clean! The kitchen is well stocked, the owners and the property manager were extremely assessable and quick to respond! The small yard in the back was perfect to sit out and have a cup of morning coffee! It was also very quiet! ( the freeway noise disappeared and didn't bother me at all!) My daughter will be at Western next year and this will be the perfect place for my husband and her sister to come stay to visit! I loved that we can make our own food! Thank you!!!

Wonderful condo!

We stayed in this condo while visiting family in Bellingham. The condo is clean and well-equipped. It is located within walking distance to two grocery stores and is convenient to all of Bellingham. We will definitely try to stay here in the future.

Comfy clean and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

A lovely home in a cute neighborhood close to everything. The house is so cozy, comfortable beds, full kitchen to cook in. Honestly they made it all so easy!! My only caveat would be that the "cable TV" is lterally 8 channels. Not much to choose from but there is a DVD player so bring your own supplies. If that isn't a concern for you this place is perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are in the process of upgrading our cable for our guests. It will make things perfect then, we hope! Sally and Bill

Very comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We found this property to be very comfortable with a lot of "extras" that other homes do not have. We enjoyed the nice well-equipped kitchen and having a washer - dryer.

We had a little trouble getting a strong consistent internet connection for some reason. The house was not in a location that encouraged me to walk for pleasure and health although for those who do not mind some traffic and crossing major intersections, a Whole Foods Market is definitely within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the internet. Next time, please call us and we will make adjustments so you get a strong signal. Regarding walking, one of Bellingham wonderful trails starts 1 1/2 blocks north on Lincoln and the shopping center with Whole Foods, Fred Meyer, and coffee shops is 3 blocks south. Also the community indoor swimming pool is 2 blocks away. So as you noted, we are well situated but one does need to walk 1-3 blocks to things. Please stay again!!

Great place close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home. My husband and I were in town to visit our daughter, and we so enjoyed spending time here. The kitchen is very well appointed, the furniture is comfortable, and everything was absolutely spotless. Even though it was quite warm outside (mid-80's), it felt like we had air conditioning because the home is very well built. The courtyard is a nice bonus. Quiet neighborhood, except for the traffic noise from I-5, which didn't really bother us. The owners even provided "white noise" machines in the bedrooms! We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.
