About Amy Romanoff

We are a mother/daughter duo taking over a popular VRBO. We moved to Western Washington in April 2016 from Northern California and are loving this area. Danie (daughter) lives in Bellingham with her cat Jaguar and Amy (mother) lives with her husband Kent aboard their steel trawler in Blaine. In the short time we've lived here, we've discovered so many great places to eat and explore by foot and boat, yet we still have lots more to experience. This area is especially appealing to us because it's easy to enjoy the outdoors and it's very affordable. Our love for the area inspired us to start this business.

Amy Romanoff purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Amy Romanoff chose Happy Valley

The minute we saw this lovely VRBO property we knew we wanted to manage it. The charming, well decorated apartments caught our eye. We also saw several opportunities to grow and add our own flavor, without disrupting the tasteful ambiance. This property feels very manageable because the apartments are in excellent condition and they are already uniquely decorated and nicely furnished. We feel lucky and honored to keep this tradition going.

What makes this apartment unique

What drew us to this property at first was its location -- being so close to our favorite parts of Bellingham. We especially love the peaceful setting, nestled in a quiet and safe neighborhood with private sitting areas hidden around the property. Unlike a hotel where every room is identical, here each apartment has it's own unique personality and character.

Great Location, very quiet and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Unit #1 was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. I was worried I wouldn't be able to sleep as it was hot when we arrived and no A/C but I was thrilled to find 2 box fans in the bedroom closet. PTL! The bed was comfy. Great place to stay while visiting our daughter in Fairhaven.

Lovely Comfortable Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this quaint, cozy apartment in Fairhaven. We were close to downtown Fairhaven and very much enjoyed trying as many coffee shops and restaurants as we could before continuing our travels. So many wonderful places in just a few blocks, it's amazing. Colophon Cafe, Skylark's Cafe, The Filling Station and Whiskeys Burger Bistro, just to name a few. Staying in a HomeAway apartment is a wonderful way to visit a place you are interested in getting to know. We would stay here again.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is close to the Fairhaven District and Western Washington College. There is also a shopping center within a mile. It's in a residential area and the surroundings are quiet with hardly any traffic. We used the kitchen for breakfast and found it to be adequate other than the fact that the knives were so dull as to be useless. Bring sharpening tools or your own. Overall an excellent place to spend your time.

The bed was comfortable and the apartment was clean.

Clean, comfortable and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was larger than expected. Very clean (carpets looked new) and has a full kitchen and bathroom. Neighboring tenants were quite and there was little to no road noise from the nearby road. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to unwind and see what Bellingham has to offer!
