Celebrating thirteen great years of vacation rentals in Birch Bay!

The Cozy Conch is a beautifully remodeled and very comfortable cottage in sunny Birch Bay, a mere 15 minutes from the Canada-USA border.

Enjoy the privacy of being in a detached cottage. We have equipped the cottage as we would want it to be if we were renting.


The Master bedroom has a QUEEN bed, a full en-suite bathroom and a DAY BED under the window for a nap or a quiet read, or as an extra bed for a child. The second bedroom has a QUEEN bed and has a full bathroom just outside it.

Our guests have appreciated having a second bathroom.

Each bed has high quality bedding for extra comfort.

On your quick three minute walk to the beach, pass by the Old Candy store or the Birch Bay Coffee House, grab a coffee or an ice cream, and enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Birch Bay sea shore, gathering shells and collecting memories.

Take your bikes along for the stay and bike and/or hike in nearby Birch Bay State Park, a five minute bike ride from the cottage.

If you are a golfer, SWING by any of the many scenic golf courses located within a short DRIVE.

Enjoy some fresh seafood at local restaurants, or bring it home to our fully equipped kitchen and enjoy a romantic dinner on our sun drenched deck.

Head north for the day to Vancouver, White Rock, or any of our neighbouring Canadian cities and towns, only 30 to 60 minutes' drive away.

Alternatively, head south for some great shopping at nearby Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham. Or if you are feeling a little more adventurous, keep going south on the I-5 to the Outlets in Burlington or Tulalip. If you are feeling lucky, visit the Casino in Tulalip, right next to the Outlets, or the Skagit Casino on your way home.

If shopping is not your thing, visit beautiful La Connor or stop for coffee in Fairhaven. There is so much to explore within a one hour radius of Birch Bay. Be adventurous and carve your own path.

Please take a look at the guestbook/reviews below. The reviews which we have input have been taken exactly word for word from our guestbook at the cottage.

DVD library of over 50 movies as well as a comprehensive Satellite TV package with HBO and other movie channels.

Free high speed Wi-Fi.

Netflix included.

ALSO AVAILABLE FOR RENT - "The Sand Dollar" - a second, two-bedroom cottage LESS THAN 100 YARDS AWAY. Great for booking larger family getaways when you need to rent two cottages. VRBO #986685.

About Darren and Holly

We are just two people who love being near the ocean and can never get enough of the beach lifestyle. We live a mere 25 minutes away but when we go to the cottage we feel instantly relaxed and stress free. The cottage has been and continues to be a great retreat for us and our Families.

Darren and Holly purchased this Cottage in 2005

Why Darren and Holly chose Birch Bay

We love the relaxed atmosphere in Birch Bay. When we stay there it really does feel like we are a world away, even though we live less than a half an hour away. We vacation in Birch Bay every summer, and love the fact that the cottage is so close to the Old Candy Store and the beach. On the way to the beach we like to stop in and get an ice cream cone. Or on a morning walk it's great to pick up a coffee and and cinnamon bun and enjoy them in the sunshine. The bay is also great for kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and water skiing. The water is calm and is the warmest north of San Francisco and there is very little to no boat traffic. The clamming is known to be the best in Washington. The beach is great for walking on and our dogs particularly enjoy it. We have had many a family get together there, and also had friends join us. Birch Bay is also perfectly located between Vancouver and Seattle, and with Bellingham, Fairhaven and La Connor not too far away there is plenty to do in the area. It's a great spot for a summer vacation or a quiet winter getaway.

What makes this Cottage unique

The cottage is fully equipped, with a washer and dryer, satellite tv, and high speed Wi-Fi. It is very comfortable for a short stay or a longer off season stay. The deck is full of sun in the afternoon and evenings in the summer, and having a second bathroom is a big bonus for when we have friends or family join us. We also have RV parking available, and and a fire pit out on the front lawn for fire side chats and s'mores.

                                                  Lovely, quiet home in beach town

                                                  Jessica B.Seattle, WA

                                                  We enjoyed this house so much! Quiet and cozy, it was perfect for us and our 3 girls. The neighborhood was quiet and it was a short walk to the beach.

                                                  a very nice cottage

                                                  Martha J.

                                                  The cottage was as good...or better than advertised. Thank you.

                                                  Excellent spot to stay!

                                                  Mindy E.

                                                  We loved our stay here! It deserves more than 5 stars if we could. It was clean and bright, and had everything we needed. The location is excellent...just a short walk to the beach and Birch Bay state park, where there are beautiful sunsets. There are restaurants/bars just a short walk to town as well. The hospitality was amazing too! Darren & Holly we're super helpful & did everything they could to make sure we had a great stay. The neighbors were really friendly & helpful as well. Highly recommend!!

                                                  Enjoyed our stay!

                                                  Janet H.

                                                  Stayed for a week with my husband and parents. We were in town visiting my brother and his family for Christmas. The cottage was perfect for our needs. Very clean and had everything we needed. Owners very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

                                                  Best stay ever!

                                                  Sandra V.

                                                  My husband and I loved our stay at the Cozy Conch Cottage! Darren and Holly are the best, they stay in touch to make sure everything is perfect! We had everything we needed to make this stay wonderful! The touches around the cottage are heartfelt, we spent an hour just walking around the cottage looking at the artwork and all the cute touches! Thrilled with all the thoughtful items, bbq, foreman grill, rice cooker, bar set, board games, books, dvd’s etc. Would love to stay here again!

                                                  Wonderful !!!!!!

                                                  Cliff S.

                                                  My family and I had a wonderful stay at this cozy cottage by the ocean. Shopping and stores were close by .... The only problem was our stay was way too short. We highly recommend if you are heading to Birch Bay this is the place too stay. We would like to thank Darren and Holly for opening the doors of their cottage to us and we will definitely stay there for years to come.....
