On cooler evenings, light a fire in the wood burning fire place and cozy up with a good book in our tastefully decorated, yet comfortable, living room.

When the tide is out, there is no better place then the warm sandy beach in Birch Bay for kite flying, clamming, crabbing, and beachcombing. When the tide is in, try kayaking the calm sparkling water or strolling and bicycling along the shore. On the condo site you can take a dip in the indoor Olympic size heated pool, relax in the hot tub, or work up a sweat on the racquetball or tennis courts and, for the kids, there is a large recreation games room with foosball, ping pong and other table games. Golf courses, fine and casual dining, waterslides, a grocery store and the famous ‘C Shop’ filled with homemade sweet treats are all within walking distance.
A short drive will take you to the Birch Bay Mall with a supermarket, outlet stores and several fast food shops. Though it is recommended that you use a car to get around, there is regular bus service to nearby Blaine, Ferndale and Bellingham. We are located less than five miles from the I-5 freeway exit 270, 20 miles north of Bellingham with the inviting Bellis Fair shopping mall, 100 miles north of Seattle, 7 miles to the Canadian border in Blaine, 38 miles to Vancouver, BC, and 115 miles to world famous Whistler Mountain - home of the 2010 Olympics.

Tom, an American and Denise, a Canadian, have spent many years living and working in various parts of the world. We are the original owners of the condo. The condo has always been our home base in the US and has many pleasant memories for our family. Now retired, we continue to travel the world and rent our property when not using it ourselves. So what you will enjoy is really our home and the condo reflects a home environment rather than a sterile institutional condo.

Comfortable condo with water view
Very pleasant location and very helpful owner. We were particularly pleased with the full range of kitchen equipment and appliances.

The condo was clean and well stocked with everything you might need. A great location and even has an indoor pool along with tennis and basketball courts.
birch bay condo
The condo was very comfortable. A very peaceful relaxed setting. Enjoyed looking out the window at the bay. Perfect location for our trip to see family and friends during the holiday.
A great place
We had a wonderful time. This place was easy to find, the entry instructions were simple, and the furnishings were superior. The half bath upstairs made it a perfect place for our teenage granddaughters. We had a wonderful view of the beach and lots of fun on the beach, in the bay, and in the indoor pool. The weather was gorgeous, and so we also had a wonderful day hiking in the big mountains, specifically the Skyline Divide trail.
This place was just perfect from top to bottom. Everything was even better that I thought it would be and the ease of getting there and leaving instructions made for a stress free holiday. This is one place I want to come back to every year.
Great condo, fabulous location
We were very pleasantly surprised when we walked into this beautiful well equipped condo, everything is so bright and cheery. Love the beautiful private patio which has a great ocean view. Everything was in great working order. There is nothing missing from this place you truly just need to show up with your clothes. It truly is a gem and the location in the complex is so private. Pride of ownership is obvious.
Large Water Slide Park within walking distance. During the summer, equipment for beach activities (boat, kayak, snorkel, etc) is available for rent at a commercial outlet nearby.
