About the Property

Centrally located, newly restored, Laundry, Kitchen and Lots of Space

In the fabulous Lettered Streets neighborhood, across the street from a park, near numerous coffee shops, restaurants, music venues, etc, sits a lovely daylight basement apartment. Walk up to our large home on a double lot, through the gate and follow the walkway to the left to your private entrance where you'll enter into a bright and colorful basement with big windows. You'll find a living room through the archway to the right, dining area to the left, and then pass through the fully stocked kitchen to the generous bathroom, laundry room and finally the hallway to two beautiful bedrooms with those great windows again.
You are welcome to enjoy the yard with gardens, swings, playhouse, tables and BBQ. Don't forget the park across the street!
Our active family lives upstairs. During waking hours you will certainly hear us. Sometimes we'll be louder than others. With all the events and activities of the kids, we (or most of us) are often gone and the house will be completely quiet. We've had numerous guests (we ran the upstairs, main house as a busy VRBO for several years) and tenants who have used and lived in this space and found it completely fine. You are always welcome to come upstairs and join in the fun, if (on the very rare occasion) there appears to be a party going on. (Party dates are typically blocked out so that guests are not disturbed.) We do our best to keep things quiet after 9 pm and don't typically start up again before 7 am. It's easy for us to avoid the areas above your bedrooms during sleeping hours.

The nice thing is that we are on site to assist you with anything you need. You are welcome to interact with us as you choose or retreat to your private space.
The Bellingham Lettered Streets is a fantastic neighborhood. Filled with charming homes, you will see people strolling about everywhere. We can point you in the direction of lots of Bellingham icons (Rocket Donuts, Old Town Cafe, Lettered Streets Coffeehouse, Elizabeth Park, Mt. Baker Theater, Whatcom Museum, etc.), all within walking distance. We are right in between two major bus lines.
Our little kitty, Luna, is very friendly and loves to find comfortable places to sleep. We do our best to keep her out of your space, but she would be happy to meet you.
You will find that many of our reviews speak to the big house upstairs. Our more recent guests who have stayed in the new smaller space downstairs have given us similar happy endorsements. We hope you'll come stay with us and enjoy your time in Bellingham!
