About Sally

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

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

Dear Sally and Bill

We loved staying at your place!! Thank you for having it be so clean and so well decorated. Our son also enjoyed playing in your fenced back yard and walking across the street (with us) to the elementary school play grounds. We enjoyed the proximity to the trail system and the Farmer's Market. It was perfect. We plan to return.

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.

Delivered with care

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has been prepared with great care. Everything you could want is there and in excellent condition. It is as if a tidy home rather than a rental property. Walking distance to a variety of shops including a "Whole Foods" store that has good take-away self service hot and cold food. Easy drive to downtown and onto I5.

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two children, 20 months and 4 weeks old! We loved that we had a small yard and open living space for the kids. It is close to the freeway, but it never bothered us - additionally there are sound machines in the bedrooms to help (huge for the kids).

Would have liked more cable options. The sheets and towels left a little to be desired BUT that is small frys. The stay was great, the kitchen was fantastic and it's super close to whole foods & a really great yogurt shop :)

It was perfect for the wedding weekend we were attending, we would stay here again.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in this delightful condo for several nights. We were so impressed with the cleanliness and how well stocked it was in all areas. The location is close to shopping and city access. There is a lovely backyard and parking next to the condo. The contact person is friendly and helpful.The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. I would without a seconds hesitation stay here again.
