vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The owners were very accomodating, and always got right back to us via text with any and all questions. The location is perfect for traveling to the lake, or heading to local parks and downtown. We loved the patio and grass area, which our little kids enjoyed playing in. The owners provided a ton of ammentities from pancake mix and syrup to hair shampoo and conditioner - all high end products. We enjoyed our stay and loved Bellingham, we will be back.

It was a cozy and well appointed 2br with a great little living space and kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

The space was beautifully decorated and cozy from beds all the way to plush towels for the bathrooms. Cree was very responsive prior to our stay and during if we needed anything! A perfect space to relax and rest after a day of being in a workshop! Thanks for a true retreat space!

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

The description of the listing on VRBO was exactly as stated of the property. We were very happy with our stay at the condo. The location is very convenient to groceries, dinning ,shopping and site seeing. The space is decorated beautifully and well maintained. The outside space is landscaped nice and very inviting. The owner provided us all the information we needed to get into the condo. They made entering very easy and we felt very secure once we were unpacked and settled in. The neighborhood in very nice and quiet.

I would recommend this property to all of our friends and relatives visiting Bellingham. I would recommend the Bellingham Bay area in for dinning out. There are several restaurants on the water. The Bellingham Bay area is a must when visiting Bellingham.

Modern property

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and convenient property. Cree was attentive to questions. Looks just like photos. Only downside was the extreme noise from the upstairs renters.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed and appreciated our rental. We are very sorry to learn for the first time that the upstairs renters were a bit noisier than usual. I know they were celebrating a wedding. Future travelers should be aware that there are people in the upper unit, however, with a phone call or a text to us, we are happy to speak to them if they are a bit too noisy. We have found our guests to be very willing to quiet down when they become aware that they might be too noisy. Since we didn't hear from you, we assumed all was well. We are always just a text message away. We take great care to keep a close working relationship with all of our guests and are always available to help make sure everyone has a wonderful time... and that the guests in either unit respect the quiet enjoyment of our other guests. Thank you again for staying at our rental and we hope you will come and stay again. We hope future guests will also look forward to booking with us knowing that we will be there when they call us, to ensure their comfort and enjoyment.

A lovely apartment, beautifully furnished and very private.

  • 5 of 5

What a great rental for us. We were minutes away from our granddaughters. The apartment was great for us, furnished with everything we needed for our 5 day stay. The bedroom was quiet. The kitchen had everything we needed. The living room was warm and inviting. We will return.

Lovely home with great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a great location near water and within easy driving distance of shops and restaurants. Cree was most helpful in guiding us on the highlights of the area. Really enjoyed being able to sit outside for meals and relaxing. Well equipped kitchen. Parking spot right by the house.

The apartment and is located on Lake Whatcom in Silverbeach; the sunny side of the lake. You will be a few minutes drive from downtown Bellingham and only a short walk to the edge of Lake Whatcom where you can swim, boat, (we have temporary parking if you bring your boat), hike, mountain climb, mountain bike, kayak, paddle board, and we are on the outskirts of Bellingham on the side that makes it a straight shot up Mt Baker for Skiing which is about 50 miles away. There is so much more. The area is simply beautiful, and the apartment is ultra comfortable and PRIVATE. Two bedroom ground level suite/apartment/flat or you can call it a HAVEN. PRIVATE entrance, private full bath, dinette and living room combination, full kitchen. You are sure to encounter a hummingbird or two any time of the year or perhaps a deer, a bald eagle, or a hoot from an owl perched high above while you enjoy a large patio that walks out from your unit. The beautiful plush forest of Sqaulicum Mtn surrounds the apartment on two sides and views of Lake Whatcom on the other. The view of the lake gets pretty good in late fall after the leaves have fallen. We have an outdoor fireplace, gas grill with side burner and patio furniture. Inside there is a kitchen with a microwave, coffee and tea pot, full sized refrigerator/freezer. There is a stove with oven and cook top with a built in microwave. and coffee grinder for fresh ground coffee. Pancake griddle and a Belgian waffle iron and some waffle mix handy if you desire to use it. You have full access to the entire lower level of our three story home. large capacity washer and dryer located in the suite (you might need your own He (high efficiency) detergent unless there is some left over from previous guests ). Owner's master suite is on the 3rd floor while guest apartment/suite is the full, lower level with private entrance and complete separation from the main residence. There is a nice but small yard. The suite is most comfortably enjoyed by 4 but have had six and more on several occasions with no issues. Fee's are based on double occupancy. Smart 46" TV with HD dish satellite and DVR . 40' & 32" Flat screen TV's in the bedrooms. Dish Network, Netflix, Blue-ray DVD, s WiFi. an assortment of recorded movies. 1.5 mile drive to Barkley Village which has a full grocery store (Hagen) , restaurants, new Regal Cinema 16 first run movies, Omni iMax theater. We are a 5 min walk to the nearest public access beach area and a mile and a half to the nearest park with a sandy beach, volleyball courts, swing sets and boat launch. Minutes from many fantastic, beautiful walking and hiking trails. Galbraith Mountain for mountain biking is 2 miles, Mt Baker Ski lodge is 50 miles. Downtown Vancouver BC is only 35 miles. We are 15 or 20 miles to the Canadian Boarder. We are a few hours to Whistler BC. We have many whale watching cruises leaving from Bellingham Bay (10 min). We are just a boat ride or an air taxi ride out to the San Juan Islands, Friday Harbor, Roche Harbor, Orcas Island. You will absolutely love staying in the apartment while staying in Bellingham. Sorry we have a strict no pet policy, no smoking anywhere on premises. Not a party place or a gathering place for anyone other then guests in the original party.
