THE PILOT HOUSE - STUNNING OCEAN VIEW, LUXURY AMENITIES. WOW!

Birch Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Thanks for taking a moment to learn about my dream home – The Pilot House. The home is a 5 minute walk to the beach. Perched handsomely on a ridge that overlooks the beaches of Birch Bay, this home makes you feel as though you are aboard a ship. The 25 foot high wall of windows in the living room/dining room look out to the most spectacular, lingering sunsets that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. The spacious Quarterdeck on the main level easily accommodates a larger group for afternoon tanning, evening cocktails, sunset barbeques, or quiet bird watching. There is seated outdoor dining for eight people.

The house is built on three levels. The ground level includes a two car garage which is used as a rec room. You and your guests can play some ping pong or foosball. There is also an extra fridge for beer and cold drinks in the rec room. Up to four regular size vehicles will fit in the driveway. The lower level also has the Bunkhouse. This third bedroom has a brand new bunk bed with a full size/double bed on the bottom and a single on top. This very cute, cowboy themed room is ideal for three kids or a couple with one child. The room has a set of sliding doors that access the ground floor patio and fenced backyard. The fully stocked laundry room is also on this level and is free to use. Iron and ironing board, soap, and fabric softener are all there.

The main level is an open, spacious area for relaxing or entertaining. With cathedral ceilings, an impressive window wall, and all the luxury amenities, you’ll feel on top of the world. The dining table seats six and the breakfast bar seats three. The kitchen includes everything you would expect to find in luxury kitchen -- microwave, dishwasher, disposal, ice maker, gas stove. Small appliances include blender, toaster, coffee maker, kettle, and electric griddle. Soaps, dish towels, all utensils, pots, pans dishes are for your use. Basic spices are available.

The main level also includes a complete bathroom with tub and shower, and the Butterfly room. This bedroom has a queen size bed and is quite spacious should you be bringing an infant or toddler with play pen or change table. You will need to bring your baby’s own sleeping set-up. All other linens are provided.

The Captain’s Quarters are a beautiful bright loft that includes a large ensuite bathroom with spacious walk-in shower and two sinks. Enjoy the ocean view from the tall, super comfortable queen size bed. It is an amazing way to wake-up. Light pours into this room so I suggest you bring a sleeping mask to avoid getting up with the sun. There is an additional seating area with couch and coffee table.

Feel free to do a puzzle, play a game, watch a movie or read a book. Lots of all of these things are here for you. There is full cable television, free long distance calling within Canada and the US, WiFi, and all the other comforts of home. Obviously you didn’t travel to one of prettiest areas on the planet to stay inside, so be sure to enjoy all that the area has to offer.

You are ten minutes from the world class professional Semiahmoo golf course and the challenging Loomis Trail. These are "must play" courses for serious golfers. Farmers markets, antique markets, town fairs and festivals abound throughout the summer season. The area is ideal for cycling or hiking. There are numerous activities both on the land and water but probably the most popular activity of all is inactivity. So if you are looking to chart a course to total relaxation and ease, come aboard the Pilot House.

I'm a mid 40's Canadian guy who has been fortunate enough to buy his dream retirement home a few years early. I live one hour away from Birch Bay, in Vancouver where I own and operate a hair salon in the beautiful neighborhood of Kitsilano.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Birch Bay has a wonderful history of providing some of life's most memorable summer vacations. For many decades, this seaside community has offered a great escape for Canadians and Americans alike.

The reasons will be obvious when you begin to explore the areas beautiful beaches, rolling farmlands, pristine mountainscapes and historical townships.

I chose The Pilot House because when I walked through the door I was instantly enveloped in light, warmth, and peace. This special place has been desribed as a little piece of Heaven and I'm grateful to include in my Earthly life.

Since taking it over, I have strived to turn a custom built executive home into a cozy, casual cottage. I've acheived a striking balance of luxury blended with feet-up comfort. It's a lovely home, but it's also very kid friendly.

Ultimately, it is the ocean sunset view that will stay in your memory a lifetime.

A Perfect Week in The Pilot House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2013

My family (son and family and daughter and grandchildren), nine of us in all stayed at The Pilot House for one week in August. The property was everything and more than what was shown on VRBO. The house is gorgeous and there was plenty of room for all nine of us. The photos that you see on the web site are exactly what you see when you are there. The house is very well equipped with just about everything one would need. As well, the house and yard was so clean and well maintained.

Darcy was just great about answering my questions and overall, very accommodating. I spoke with him several times before our vacation and he was very helpful with the questions that I had.

It really is only a five minute walk to the beach and, of course, the "C Shop", which both kids and adults alike enjoyed! My son, son-in-law and grandchildren went to the water slides and had a great day there.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Pilot House to other family or friends.

Thank you so much, Darcy, for accommodating us for a wonderful vacation in beautiful Birch Bay!

The Pilot House is all that it promises and more!

From our very first contact with Darcy, the owner, we knew that we were in good hands. He is attentive to details, responds promptly to queries or concerns, and ensures that your stay will be pleasant and, above all else, relaxing!

The house itself is dreamy with a breathtaking view of the ocean and sky which you can enjoy from the comfort of the living room or loft, or simply step out onto the sun drenched deck to take it all in. The overstuffed leather couches in the living room invite you to sit, recline, put your feet up and do nothing more... but there is so much more to do. The games room downstairs has more than enough things to keep you entertained but then the town of Birch Bay beckons you to come and explore. Thankfully, it's just a few minutes away down the road, and you can either walk or drive there, depending on how leisurely you want to spend your time.

At the end of the day, as the sun sets, you will definitely want to be back out on the deck to take it in. And then you can head inside, find yourself a cozy bed to sleep in (and there are many to choose from as the house easily sleeps eight adults).

In the morning, you'll have an exquisite shower in the oversized stall upstairs and then make your way to the amazing kitchen to prepare your breakfast. As a matter of fact, you can prepare all of your meals in the well-stocked kitchen. It has all of the pots and pans that you'll need, and more than enough plates on which to serve the meals. And it seems that there's an unwritten policy between guests that you take some and you leave some when it comes to food stock. We could have arrived with no food at all and not needed to buy anything!

All in all, my family can't wait to visit the Pilot House again!

Thank you, Darcy, for sharing this little piece of heaven with us!

Great Place for Family Getaway

Came into town for a soccer tournament and stayed with another family. We had four adults and four kids ages 8-11 years of age. The house was spacious and comfortable. The kids were entertained for hours in the game room while the adults enjoyed the great view from the living room and deck. If you are looking for a quite getaway with the family it is great spot. Only minutes from a great state park for tide pool exploration and sitting on the beach. There is a cute cafe and ice cream shop just down the road. If we are back for next years soccer tournament we will be looking into staying at the Pilot House once again.

Wonderful Stay at The Pilot House

This is the second time my family have stayed at the Pilot House. Our first impression was "wow!" The house is beautiful and the views from the deck really have to be seen to be best described ~ AMAZING. I can not think of a more beautiful setting to see the sunset.

The house easily accommodated 7 of us (including 3 children) and it has all the ameinities you need for a relaxing stay. It is exceptionally clean and all the little touches just add to a great experience.

Darcy is a real pleasure and ensures all your needs are looked after. Always available to answer questions and very timely in responding.

We will definately be back and would highly recommend the Pilot House. The house is only 5 minutes walk to the beach, 25 minutes to Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham and only 90 minutes from Seattle.

The only downside is that your stay all too quickly comes to an end! Thanks Darcy for sharing your beautiful home.

Get Away Week

Our family of 5 enjoyed a very relaxing week at the Pilot House. We took advantage of the game room, loved the views, ate a lot of cherries, and enjoyed being in northwest Washington. I was hoping to watch a stormy day from the living area after reading some previous reviews but we suffered through a week of sunny weather (I’ll survive). Very comfortable home, fun décor, coordination with Darcy was very smooth, and simply no complaints.
