About Martha Holmes

My husband and I (Jonathan and Martha) currently live in Los Altos, California (about 30 miles south of San Francisco).. We have lived and worked in this area for 30 years and raised our son who is now 20 and in college . We all fell in love with the Blaine area when visiting my mother and brother who have lived there for 7 years. We finally decided to buy a vacation home and the minute we walked into this one we knew it was perfect. Jonathan is planning to retire soon and we hope to split out time between Blaine and Los Altos. It is a wonderful little town and beautiful home.

Even though we are not "on site" we have many local contacts and I am available by phone all the time if you need anything

Martha Holmes purchased this house in 2014

Almost better than the description...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 3 nights May 2017. A family get together with young children. The property is exactly as described....if not better. We were concerned about enough seating for 6 adults, and were pleased to see a new large comfortable sectional couch in the living room. Perfect to lounge in and chat. The view is amazing, with nothing impeding it. The listing says across the road from the ocean, but the road is a simple gravel (trail) and we only saw a vehicle on it once every few hours. There was good internet. The house was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and dishes, there were lots of towels for the bathrooms, and access to the property is easy. We would stay here again.

The home was magnificent! We will be back.

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and clean. There was plenty of room for our large family to gather over the three days we stayed at the property. Awaking to the Canadian geese on the bay as the snow fell outside was just amazing. We'll be back in the Summer!

Beautiful clean home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay-everything was as expected and I think the listing does a nice job of being true to the home (which hasn't always been my experience). The home is very bright and open, tastefully decorated with a well equipped kitchen and plenty of seating-more than pictured! Martha was great to deal with ahead of time answering questions and vey willing to make special accommodations to make it easier for us. We would stay again!

Restoration get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and spacious! Each adult had their own room and bathroom! The views of Drayton Bay are amazing through the floor to ceiling windows. We and our pups were very comfortable, everyone had ample room to spread out. The Holmes' provided everything we needed; and things we didn't know we needed. We were looking for a peaceful, restful place and that's exactly what we experienced here. Even though the weather was rainy we still enjoyed ourselves; walking the wee beasties to Montfort park and sightseeing in neighboring towns. We will return. Thank you Martha!

Located right on the boarder of Washington and Canada, this is a perfect central location for many activities.
