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!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here three times over the past three years. Each time we have found it clean and well-equipped. The location is perfect. It is close to Fred Meyer, the aqua center, the interstate and downtown. The kitchen is great and we have fixed many meals in it. This will always be our first choice when we make future trips to Bellingham.

Wonderful! Travelled for work and thankful that the owners have been flexible to make this work!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled for a month for work and when a month turned to 6 weeks, then almost two months, the owners helped me make it all work. Its a very nice and quiet place and I'm thankful for all of their help to make Bellingham a wonderful place for me.

Clean, nice, everything you need for a comfortable stay that feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

I've been some VRBOs that are bare bones, without paper towels, etc. This one is the opposite. Was happy to find everything I needed to live like I was at home- from spices to coffee, a radio, laundry detergent. The apartment had its own washer dryer combo inside the unit. Comfortable and quality bed and bedding. Benches on the front and back porch were welcoming. There is a small fenced backyard with nice landscaping. I stayed for 4 weeks and anytime I had a question, the owner always got right back to me. People live in the unit above and they were never loud. The only drawback to the whole place was that you can hear a little bit of traffic from I-5, but the radio and white noise device drowned it out so I stopped noticing it. Found some nice trails to walk on nearby. There was also a Fred Meyers and Whole Foods down the street. I was very happy here and will be coming back!

Delightful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more pleased with our decision to stay at Sally's condo in Bellingham. It was everything we needed: clean, comfortable, and close to all we wanted. Sally and Zoe were both great to work with, and very accommodating. We were pleasantly surprised, on arrival, to find that the condo was even nicer than it looked in the online pictures. It was supplied with everything we needed, and had a wonderful atmosphere. Our damage deposit was promptly refunded, without any fuss, and we had no complaints whatsoever. We really appreciated the condo's proximity to the freeway and to Lakeway Drive (road to Whatcom Falls, Sudden Valley, Lake Whatcom, etc.). We found a new favorite restaurant nearby (Coconut Kenny's -- try the Maui Cheesesteak!) and can't rave enough about the views from Chuckanut Drive. Bellingham is beautiful, and we hope Sally's condo will be available the next time we visit. We highly recommend it.
