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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

Nicely furnished and lovely decor

We (two couples) stayed at this lovely condominium for three nights. The condo is beautifully furnished and has a completely well stocked kitchen. The open layout between the kitchen, eating area, and the living room works very well. Couch and chairs are very comfortable and the large sized TV is excellent. There is a decent sized backyard which, in sunny weather, could be enjoyable for young children. Although there is no BBQ, it would serve as an excellent BBQ area as well. There are new carpets in both bedrooms and the condo was immaculate. Location makes getting around Bellingham very easy. In fact, we walked into the downtown area from the unit. The bathroom is also well stocked, clean, and large enough to be very comfortable. There is a little noise from the freeway behind the condo. Was not an issue for us, but could be for light sleepers. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Way Better Than a Hotel!!

Stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed this condo! We were so much more comfortable here than at a hotel, and it was really nice having a full kitchen to make some nice meals. Cooking a few meals made up the price difference compared to a hotel room. The owners are very nice and seem to always be improving things based on guest comments. It is close to the freeway, but it never really bothered us. The bed in the 2nd room was pretty firm, but the queen bed was wonderful! Recommended!
