Bellingham Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This adorable getaway is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to everything! It is located one mile from Bellingham's downtown and famous Farmer's Market; it is 1/3 mile from a gym, bike/hike trails, a bus line, restaurants, and stores; and it is a 5 to 10 minute drive to historic Fairhaven, Western Washington University, and waterfront parks. Mallard's Ice Cream Store, a 5 minute drive downtown, was rated by USA Today as the best ice cream store in Washington! Our place is perfect for WWU parents who want to be comfortable in Bellingham and cook a meal and have private time with their WWU student.

Freeway access from I5 easy. If you want to explore Bellingham, visit your WWU student, or enjoy the area's many outdoor or cultural activities; our lovely two bedroom place may be for you. It may also be ideal for an executive stay if you have business at the university or the medical centers.


The master bedroom features a queen size bed with dual side tables and lamps, chester drawers, mirror, and closet. All beds (master and second BR) are outfitted with fine linens and Pottery Barn bedcovers. The morning sun enhances this room when the shades are up.


The guest room features a new queen bed with lamp and shelf storage in the closet. This room includes a comfortable corner desk with Wifi reception. A full window offers nice sun with shades up.


The Fully Furnished Kitchen is equipped with full sized refrigerator, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, garbage disposal, and toaster. It has a full service of attractive dishes, glasses, and stemware. For cooking, you will find a new set of Cuisinart pots and pans, cooking utensils, and bowls. Our table sits under an attractive ceiling fan and in a kitchen nook with two windows to give good light. Our guests have commented how much they like our kitchen.


The living room has been furnished with Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel leather, wood, and fabric furniture. We have beautiful artwork framed professionally. Our flat screen TV with DVD player and well lit room will be very comfortable for your relaxation. The slider door goes out to the lovely yard.


The yard is fenced and expertly landscaped. There is a bench and chairs for your enjoyment of the patio.

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

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!

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.

Very comfortable and convenient . Will highly recommend to anyone.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the month of September as a way to decide if we want to move to Bellingham. The owners were just awesome in response to any questions we had.The home was very comfortable and clean . The neighbors are very respectful and quite ( especially the college students ). The kitchen and linens were well stocked . We have stayed in VRBOs for 20 years and this was one of our favorites. We would liked to have had more than just the very basic TV channels available and I did suggest to Sally they may want to consider that. She appreciated the suggestion. We had several friends and family come for lunch during the month and everyone commented on how nice it was.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

It is very convenient to a few shopping centers and a coffee shop. Close proximity to the freeway make for some noise, but not much noise in the evening. Easy check in and great communication by the owners of the condo as well. There was even a pack and play for my baby boy to sleep in which was very nice. I will rent this place again the next time I am in Bellingham.

The Best of VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

Sally and Bill's condo is perfect for 2-couples or a small family. It's centrally located and provides a comfortable alternative to a hotel. It is easy to find, just off I-5. Spotlessly clean is an understatement! The condo met all of our needs in the kitchen and otherwise. If appreciate high quality bed linens and towels and you'll have them here. Our party of four adults were very comfortable. The shower water pressure is great and if you need a firm mattress, you'll have it here. The condo is warm, welcoming and among the best we've visited worldwide. The art work is wonderful eye candy. Sally and Bill provide the model for VRBO/Homeaway providers to emulate!
