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.

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.

Traveling alone and just wanted clean, a kitchen and safe. Private. This exceeded expectations and was so close to everything including fairhaven and parks
Very comfortable and convenient
Not fancy but comfortable and convenient
Quiet, Comfortable and Convenient
This was my second stay here, and the first under the new owner. I enjoyed it even more this time.
The apartment is clean, quiet and a very comfortable place to live. I thoroughly enjoyed my 10-day stay and got in a few hundred miles of hiking and geocaching - two endeavors for which Bellingham is unbeatable!
I was in the end unit, which is apparently appointed especially for pet owners, and my Dalmatian had a wonderful time here. There are hard floors rather than carpeting, and leather furniture. Perfect, and I really appreciate being able to bring her.
The owner was prompt in answering my questions (it turns out there IS a DVD/Blu-Ray in the unit - thanks!). The laundry is convenient and easy to use. The bed was very comfortable. I really, really appreciated the good-sized table in the unit - a rarity in other locations I have stayed at. Plenty of room for my desktop and an eating area.
I will be back!
OK place but I'll look elsewhere next visit
Uncomfortable bed, a double not a queen and we both had difficulty sleeping. No air conditioning and it was a hot weekend. Nothing else wrong, but nothing either to make us want to come back. Neighborhood is residential, far from any services.
Sorry to hear that the bed was uncomfortable for you and your wife. We upgraded it less than a year ago and it actually is a queen. Others have commented on how comfortable it is. It's a memory foam mattress which apparently doesn't appeal to everyone. Yes, it's been unusually hot in Bellingham. I hope you found the fan in the closet.
Thanks for staying with us,
