About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)
Enjoy views of the Bay and the Gulf and San Juan islands from our living room and front deck. The 'bay view deck' is outdoor living at its best. As the sun rises, flowers, trees and the greenery of the garden setting, come to life. Start the morning with coffee, the morning paper or breakfast. At midday, lunch or snack with the sun overhead. Later at happy hour visit with friends and family, and enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine before dinner or a BBQ. Later, enjoy dessert, coffee, conversation, and the sunset, as the sun slowly fades behind the mountains of Vancouver Island. An end to a perfect day! And, as our guests report, a perfect vacation.
Our home in Birch Bay, is newly renovated and tastefully decorated, and occupies mid and top levels at the Jacob's Landing Complex. Architecturally designed, it features high vaulted ceilings with floor to ceiling windows to capture the view of the Bay! Living room, kitchen, dining area, bathroom, washer/dryer, bedroom and front deck complete the layout of the main level. A second bedroom, with queen bed, closet, adjacent bathroom and wall mounted TV, complete the top level. Meals prepared in Irene's newly renovated kitchen with its full stocked pantry, are guaranteed to satisfy the heartiest and most demanding appetites and extend the family budget as well. The dining room table seats 6 comfortably. Bon Appetite !
Because of its sheltered location, Birch Bay's warm, shallow waters, are safe for all ages. At low tides, children can explore the sand bars, hunting for clams and crabs, building a sand castle or flying a kite. Birch Bay is perfect for boating and kayaking, with a convenient launching ramp at Birch Bay State Park. And lastly, the area is classified as one of the most important birding areas and bird watching is a popular past time. Watch for Bald Eagles!
Our guests love the heated indoor Olympic swimming pool, summer and winter alike. The racquetball court and the game room for ping pong and foosball along with two tennis courts, add to their enjoyment. They can walk or bike to a scenic path following the perimeter of the Bay. Golfers will discover two championship courses within 5 minutes of the condo. And those seeking alpine walking will find the trails of Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan to their liking and only one hour to the east.
Linens, towels (kitchen & bath), beach towels (plastic colorful shovels and buckets for the children, for beach play), dish washing and laundry soap, paper towels, toilet paper, tissues, and kitchen staples provided. Bring only groceries, and personal items and your camera.

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, leading to a banking career and a Vice-Presidency at a major bank. Jack's career 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 from Seattle.
