About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Our home in Birch Bay, is newly renovated and tastefully decorated, featuring a modern kitchen, with new appliances and a well stocked pantry. Step from the living room to the front patio and enjoy the green area, the expansive view of Birch Bay and the Gulf Islands. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living at its best from morning to night. Start with morning coffee, the paper or breakfast. The adjacent lawn/garden area is a perfect spot for children to play, during the day, under the watchful eyes of parents and grandparents. And if your choice is an afternoon swim or stroll on the beach, you are just steps away. Late afternoon, gather with friends, family and neighbors for happy hour and dinner or a BBQ. After dinner, linger over dessert, coffee and conversation as the sun slowly sets behind the mountains of Vancouver Island. SUNSETS CAN BE SPECTACULAR!
The living room features floor to ceiling windows, highlighting the garden greenery, the beach, the Bay and of, course, those Spectacular Sunsets, to full advantage. Two private bedrooms, each with comfortable queen beds, and wall mounted TV's ensure our guests comfort. Meals prepared in Irene's newly renovated kitchen and expanded pantry, with all of its spices, oils, and staples are guaranteed to satisfy the heartiest and most demanding apetites and extend the family budget as well. Bon Apetit!
Our guests love the heated indoor Olympic swimming pool, summer and winter alike. The racquetball court and game room for ping pong and foosball and the two tennis courts, add to their enjoyment. One can walk or bike from the front door to a scenic path following the perimeter of the Bay. Golfers will discover two Championship courses within 5 minutes. And those seeking strenuous walking or hiking, will find the trails of Mr. Shuksan and Mt. Baker, only one hour east, to their liking.
Because of its sheltered location, Birch Bay's warm and shallow waters, are safe for all ages. At low tides, children can explore the sand bars, hunting for clams or crabs, building sand castles or flying a kite. Birch Bay is also perfect for boating and kayaking with a convenient boat launching ramp in Birch Bay State Park, to the immediate south. And lastly, the area is classified as one of the most important birding area and bird watching is a popular past-time. Look for Bald Eagles.
Bed linens, towels (kitchen & bath), beach towels (plastic colorful shovels and buckets for the children), dish washing and laundry soap, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, and kitchen staples provided. Bring only groceries, and personal items. Our Birch Bay home has all the comforts, conveniences and amenities of our primary home and we do not expect our guests to accept less.

About the owner: Originally from British Columbia, Jack and Irene have long enjoyed the recreational attractions of BC and Washington state. Later, Irene's family moved to Southern California, eventually leading to a banking career and a Vice-Presidency at a major bank. Jack's career initially in engineering, took him from Western to Eastern Canada and the US, where he completed his graduate education, in Business Administration, and started a teaching career. Later, he returned to the west coast as a Professor of Management at the University of Southern California. They are car enthusiasts, students of history, and political science and enjoy frequent travel to Europe. San Diego is their California home, and Birch Bay their home in Cascadia. They invite you to share it with them.
Why the Owner Chose Birch Bay, WA, USA:
Birch Bay is at the hub of an incredibly attractive vacation area, embracing lower British Columbia, Vancouver Island, the Gulf and San Juan Islands, the Olympic Peninsula, Whatcom and Skagit Counties, the Cascades, and two of North America's most attractive cities, Vancouver and Seattle. And, now, easily accessible from most of North America, through Bellingham, Vancouver and Seattle International Airports. Jack's introduction to Birch Bay was at the age of 2. Since then, we have sailed and fished in the Gulf and San Juan Islands, skied at Mt. Baker, Stevens Pass, and Whistler. Climbed Mr. Shuksan, and peaks in Garibaldi Park, biked on Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley, and Whatcom County. We love this part of the world, the raspberry, blueberry and blackberry picking and Salmon BBQ's, and is a return to our roots.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All the acquatic and recreational attractions of this immediate area, are within minutes of the condo and only 10 minutes from the Canadian Border, and less than 1 hour to Vancouver and 2 hours to Seattle
