About Sally

We raised our children in the NW and sent one child to WWU. Since then both daughters and their families have moved to Bellingham. So guess what?, we recently moved to Bellingham just to watch the grandkids grow up and enjoy the beauty of the area. In Bellingham, we are involved in kayaking, hiking, book clubs, ukulele, and volunteering. We love it!

Sally purchased this condo in 2007

Why Sally chose Bellingham

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you for our delightful stay in your condo. It is wonderful and we especially appreciated the great beds! The location is fabulous for everywhere we like to go in town and to spectacular Whatcom Falls and Chuckanut Drive. Hope to come back!

Clean, nice, everything you need for a comfortable stay that feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

I've been some VRBOs that are bare bones, without paper towels, etc. This one is the opposite. Was happy to find everything I needed to live like I was at home- from spices to coffee, a radio, laundry detergent. The apartment had its own washer dryer combo inside the unit. Comfortable and quality bed and bedding. Benches on the front and back porch were welcoming. There is a small fenced backyard with nice landscaping. I stayed for 4 weeks and anytime I had a question, the owner always got right back to me. People live in the unit above and they were never loud. The only drawback to the whole place was that you can hear a little bit of traffic from I-5, but the radio and white noise device drowned it out so I stopped noticing it. Found some nice trails to walk on nearby. There was also a Fred Meyers and Whole Foods down the street. I was very happy here and will be coming back!

Delightful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more pleased with our decision to stay at Sally's condo in Bellingham. It was everything we needed: clean, comfortable, and close to all we wanted. Sally and Zoe were both great to work with, and very accommodating. We were pleasantly surprised, on arrival, to find that the condo was even nicer than it looked in the online pictures. It was supplied with everything we needed, and had a wonderful atmosphere. Our damage deposit was promptly refunded, without any fuss, and we had no complaints whatsoever. We really appreciated the condo's proximity to the freeway and to Lakeway Drive (road to Whatcom Falls, Sudden Valley, Lake Whatcom, etc.). We found a new favorite restaurant nearby (Coconut Kenny's -- try the Maui Cheesesteak!) and can't rave enough about the views from Chuckanut Drive. Bellingham is beautiful, and we hope Sally's condo will be available the next time we visit. We highly recommend it.

Clean, well kept condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have never used VRBO or have been to Washington so we didn't know what to expect. We were overjoyed with our choice to stay here. The condo was very clean, very comfortable (there were 4 of us adults staying here), and it such a great location. We were no more than 10 minutes to major area attractions. I am so happy we choose to stay here over a hotel. The owners were very easy to deal with and prompt with their responses and the property manager Zoe was very friendly too. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Great Location for first time vistors

  • 5 of 5

My family was visiting Bellingham for the first time and we found this condo to be perfectly located. If we did not find ourselves within walking distance of our destination, we were only a short drive away. For longer outings, the freeway was just around the corner with easy access. The condo was very comfortable, extremely clean and well decorated! There was enough room that our family of four enjoyed having movie nights in the evenings. The beds were extremely comfortable, which is always a big deal for us ... and we enjoyed having nice linens. Sally was wonderful to talk to and was very helpful. She was always quick to answer any questions we had both before and during our visit. Thank you for everything!!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this most convenient, clean, and lovely condo. We come here to see our college student and just to enjoy Bellingham's wonderful vibe. If we can book this place, it is always our first choice. It is close to everything (to include grocery stores, coffee shops, and downtown. AND the place is immaculately clean and very well decorated. Our little niece can enjoy the fenced backyard when she joins us. We will be back. Thank-you!!

nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were in Bellingham for the first time and found this place to settle into with our 2 year old son. Sally and the property manager were very responsive for the booking and prior to arrival with all our questions. The location is very close to downtown and easily accessible to everything the area has to offer. She provided a portable crib which was fantastic. There are no sea views here but the price reflects it! One word of caution though, it is very close to the highway, and my husband had difficulty sleeping the first night due to the trucks rolling by - the noise machine that was provided did help, but think about that if you are a sensitive sleeper.
