Overview

Birch Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Be one of the growing list of satisfied and delighted people to rent this new, fully furnished, luxury condo with fabulous views of expansive, half moon shaped Birch Bay. Feel yourself relax the longer you enjoy the view! Located across the street from the bay and in the center of town. Enjoy outside moments on your private balcony. Watch blue herons fishing and eagles soaring and diving for a meal without leaving your condo. In the summer sit on adirondack chairs on the back porch and watch the sun rise over Mt Baker through the trees while fragrant coffee brews in your kitchen. Take pictures of beautiful sunsets and views of the Gulf Islands from the balcony or from the beach park across the street. On clear mornings the snow-capped mountains of Canada peak over the trees surrounding the bay. Beautifully furnished condo with full kitchen, stainless steel appliances and granite counters. High end bathrooms with heated floors, jetted tub in master bath. From the master bedroom king size bed fall asleep and wake up to the sound of waves breaking in the bay.

Fun summertime activities and a quiet off season for retreating: long walks and curling up with a good book and your favorite beverage. Sleep with the windows open and breath the fresh air and the quiet of a beachside community. During summer enjoy family activities of digging clams, making sandcastles, flying kites, wading in the shallow tide flats and gathering shells and rocks. Savor beach fires, smores or a bottle of wine and a sunset. Bring your own water 'toys' or rent locally: sailing, windsurfing, kayaking. Easy bicycling for miles and long beach hikes.

Fifty miles to Mt Baker ski area, hiking, climbing and photo ops. Within twenty minutes of great shopping in Bellingham and in historic Fairhaven. Bellingham airport 20 minutes away. International flavor in Vancouver BC is just 35 minutes away. Six miles to the Canadian/US border. Twelve miles to the east is Dutch themed mainstreet Lynden.

Semiahmoo and Loomis Creek golf courses within 10 miles. State park within walking distance and a broad beach and picnic area to accomodate larger groups.

The broad tide flats of Birch Bay encourage beachcombing, clamming, crabbing, eagle watching and moonlight strolls. This is just a perfect get-away any time of year.

Seasonal whale watching and kayak tours within several miles of Birch Bay as well as year round charter fishing.

About Paul Vanderzee

My wife and I chose Birch Bay after staying at friends' condos and falling in love with the area. It is the 'aahh' factor when rounding the corner and the bay comes into view. Less than 2 hours from Seattle, we enter a relaxed and laid back world, away from the crowds of the metropolitan area, and enjoy a delightful weekend retreat. We love the smell of salt air and the sounds of waves in the bay. Birds and wildlife are right at our feet, as well as hiking and climbing in the mountains an hour away.

Paul Vanderzee purchased this condo in 2009

Why Paul Vanderzee chose Birch Bay

The new, contemporary construction, and amazing unobstructed views from this building really appealed to the two of us. We have a quiet condo with excellent sound-proofing and with understated luxury. We also love the international flavor with Canada so close by and the friendly, hospitable community of Birch Bay. Within easy driving distance are a half dozen wineries as well as farms with fresh produce, cheese and other dairy products, and great shopping centers to engage in 'retail therapy.'

What makes this condo unique

We are an end condo unit, so the views from the windows on the west and north are amazing. The beach walks are just down the stairs and across the street. Excellent dining out opportunities within walking distance. Semiahmoo is just a 12 minute drive at the end a wonderful spit. It is great for long walks, fine NW dining, with great views of water, sunsets, and lights of the city of White Rock at night.

Fun Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable, wonderfully finished condo. The view from the 3rd floor is the best, never get tired of sunsets. My husband and I had not been to Birch Bay for about 35 years and now wondered why it took us so long to get back. Very quiet this time of year so we might venture back during summer months.

Fabulous 48 Hours

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful condo with all the amenities. The real pluses were the "no pets" designation, the quiet, impeccable cleanliness, a stunning view, heated tile floors, and a great pub on the ground level.

Great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a week and it was wonderful. Wonderfully furnished, comfortable, and an absolutely wonderful view. Paul, the owner, was super easy to work with. If I'm back in the area, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

This is a Five Star home for sure! Views, decor, convenience, floor plan, location. This home has it all. Thank you so much for the wonderful week we enjoyed at your beautiful condo. It exceeded our expectations. My wife and I loved every minute of our too short visit. Thanks again.
