About the property

A great ocean view house with beach Access

Our beach house at Semiahmoo Bay in Blaine, Washington, is along the Pacific coast between Vancouver (British Columbia) and Seattle. The house features 3 bedrooms, 2 and half bathrooms on the main floor, and 2 bedrooms with one bathroom on the lower floor. Total 4200+ sf living space, offering more than 180 degree ocean views from decks, garden, master bedroom, and living room. Minimum stay is 2 nights (3 nights if it is a US holiday weekend).

Quiet lush green hiking trails nearby, so many bird species easily spotted in the ocean and the bay, bald eagles nest visible from kitchen window...

Whether you are attracted by Skagit's Tulips, Vancouver's cherry blossoms, or the fall colors of maple and birch trees; whether hiking in North Cascades National Park, chasing whale migrations among San Juan Islands, skiing at Mt. Baker, or a relaxing hike along the trails next to the cascades of Whatcom Falls Park, the Capilano suspension bridge ... It's all accessible from Blaine.

Every season there is something to see, somewhere to go, come again if you have been here before and the sunset is so peaceful, the moonlight casting over White Rock on the other side of the bay is always soothing. We invite you to come and enjoy our humble beach house, and bring home with you some unforgettable memories.

Welcome to your Home Away at Semiahmoo Bay!

Birch Bay Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family does an annual vacation and this summer we choose the Birch Bay area. There are 13 of us and the house had plenty of room for us. The home is very comfortable and the family enjoyed using the game tables downstairs. It was just a block to the beach and we enjoyed going for walks. Our favorite spot was the side patio area where we could relax on the outdoor seating and enjoy the view. The sunsets were wonderful! The kids had fun playing ladder ball and throwing the football on the grass area. The owner was great to work with. We would definitely recommend this vacation home.

Breathtaking views from a gorgeous house

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We ended up have some flight cancellations, so we all arrived late the evening of our 1-day stay. Our one regret of the weekend was that we didn't get to stay and enjoy the house for longer.

We had an absolutely lovely time and are counting down the days until we can return! The house is HUGE and immaculately maintained, the views of the water are absolutely amazing, and the owner is a pleasure to work with. This house is one of those secrets I want to keep to myself to make sure it isn't booked from now until eternity, but it wouldn't be fair to such a wonderful host =).

Absolutely perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home do not do it justice. We needed a home for 15 family members all coming from California and Arizona to attend a wedding in Ferndale. This home far exceeded our expectations. The game room was used every day with someone always playing pool or air hockey. We sat out on both balconies every night for hours enjoying the amazing view of Semiahmoo Bay. The house was adequately furnished and equipped with everything we needed. We had a bbq and were able to sit all 15 of us on the upper grass/deck area and still enjoy the amazing views. We would definitely come back here to enjoy this stunning home. And the owner was so great on communicating when we reserved the house, just before our stay and also checked in with us while we were there to make sure everything was perfect.

Very Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of eight that stayed two nights at the property. We all wish we had booked a longer stay!

The waterfront location was fantastic and the property was easy to find. Very quiet and enjoyable. The bald eagles on the beach were a bonus!

Our group spent two weeks travelling through the Pacific NW, including parts of Alberta and BC. This was the most enjoyable stay for us. Large, spacious house. Lots of room to spread out. And great views!

Highly recommended!

It is truly rare to have a place that can offer multiple attractions in one family vacation, just to name a few here:

- Whale watching tours have a launching point at nearby Semiahmoo resort conveniently, the unique almost from outer space songs orcas exchanging in the ocean are simply unforgettable.

- North Cascades National Park is about 2 hours away, one of the less known hidden gems comparing to some other national parks

- San Juan Islands aren't that far off into the pacific ocean, take a ferry to see the lavender fields can be an enchanting trip

- The boarder is literally minutes away, check out Vancouver during your stay

- Even local parks like Whatcom Falls can be a perfect day trip for a family with young children, beautiful quiet and it's free.

- if your vacation happens to be in the month of April, you don't want to miss the color-rich tulips fields which is about 53 miles away

- If you did not arrive from Seattle airport, a day trip to the big city can be full of excitements.

- Book a deep sea fishing trip and capture some pleasant surprises for your dinner table

It is a nice list of enjoyments awaiting.
