Guestbook comments from the owner
This was a perfect home away from home with our 2 young children (3-1/2 & 1-1/2). Everything was comfortable and clean. I read through your guest book when we arrived and saw a note about Fairhaven Farmers' Market, which we immediately went to and loved! Also, Bloedel Donovan playground was perfect for the kids---and close by. We enjoyed the sand, water, and play structure. Overall, this was a wonderful stay while we traveled for a wedding up in Birch Bay. Thanks so much!

We live in Tacoma, WA, two hours away from Bellingham. Our oldest daughter went to Western Washington University in Bellingham. Now both our daughters and our four grandchildren live in Bellingham and we wanted to be able to visit them and enjoy the beauties and activities of Bellingham. Since we are not able to be there all the time, we want to be able to share our lovely property with others.

Sally purchased this condo in 2007

We chose this location because it is CLOSE to everything, including our two daughters! We can walk one mile to downtown and Farmer's Market. We can get on a bike trail, walk to a gym, go to stores and restaurants, and visit the Visitor's Center in 1/2 mile. In other words, it is a perfect location!

Past guests seem to love our property. They find it so convenient and like a home away from home. They love our fenced-in yard, off-street and well-lit parking, beautiful interior design, and lovely kitchen. And they can drive in a few minutes to anywhere they want!

Great place for family

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here for 4 nights with my wife and 2 year old daughter. It was great. You can definitely hear the highway in the background, especially from the backyard, but it is not an issue for sleeping in the bedrooms. I am a very sensitive sleeper. From other rooms is is just mild white noise in the background. My daughter slept and napped just fine. The place has all the amenities of home and was a great base for our time in Bellingham. It was nice to be so close to the highway exit when we took trips out of town. We had minor issues with a broken garbage disposal, but the owner was very responsive and it is now repaired.

Owner's Response: Dear Jason,
Thanks for your thoughtful note. I am so glad the garbage disposal was fixed. Anytime there is a problem, please call the property manager or me immediately and it should be taken care of promptly. Come again anytime! We would love to have you.

Winter in Bellingham

  • 5 of 5
Bill and Sally's place worked great for me while I was in town on business. It is nicely furnished, very clean, airy, bright and well appointed with a very comfortable bed. I have special dietary needs and cook everything from scratch so I really needed a well-equipped kitchen and this certainly fit the bill. I had everything I needed to bake, roast and cook. It's just 3 minutes from Trader Joes, and two organic grocers by car and three minutes to the inter-urban trail by foot where I would walk to Watcom falls for a nice afternoon outing in beautiful Bellingham. The frogs and birds by the first bridge on the trail sing near sunset and I came to look forward to it after the work day. Bill and Sally were kind and helpful to me and so very easy to work with. I wish them all the best.

We had a perfect weekend! Brought my parents (in their 80's) for WWU graduation. Everyone had a great time! There is enough space in the 2 bedroom unit for everyone to relax. You will be spoiled after staying here because everything is so comfortable from leather chairs to the soft sheets & towels. Although it is close to the highway, traffic noise didn't bother us (and I am noise sensitive). Traffic had died down by the time we went to bed and the bedroom windows don't face the highway. There is a fan/noise blocker for people who might want it. Everyone was able to stay warm with individual wall heaters. The sun was nice coming in the windows. However, black-out shades were appreciated for sleeping in. We walked to Fred Meyers, the grocery store. The owners and the property management were very helpful. I hope we can stay again!

We had a great weekend here.

The place was great and it made our weekend much better to be able to have our own place to cook and relax during a busy wedding schedule of events.

Wonderful spot for a Bellingham vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for the beautiful accommodations for our Bellingham stay! The condo was perfectly suited for a family - so much easier than staying in a hotel room! It had everything we needed and more (even plastic dishes for the kids!) and was furnished beautifully and comfortably. We could not have asked for more and we will be recommending this spot to anyone we know traveling to Bellingham!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at Sally and Bill Baird's condo home. It was a perfect location. Absolutely spotless and had every convenience imaginable. The guestbook journal which they provided for comments and suggestions had several entries and everyone was addressed. It is obvious they care about making their guests comfortable. The kitchen has excellent cooking utensils if you wish to cook your own meal. The outdoor patio provided a wonderful sitting area. My husband and our grown son and his girlfriend were comfortable for a five-day stay. Our other son lives in Bellingham, and said he would be recommending this rental to his other out-of-town guests.
