About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Main Unit of Duplex with Full Kitchen, Laundry, Cable, Wifi

Main unit in duplex with two large en-suite bedrooms offers loads of comfort and privacy. Recently converted to a monthly vacation rental, it feels clean and new: fresh paint inside and outside, new gas range, new beds, bedding, towels, kitchenware, etc. Enjoy your own entrance and patio. Beautiful setting with fruit trees (cherries, apples, grapes, plums, kiwi, raspberry bushes) and vegetable garden that you can pick from. Feels like you’re in the country but a 5 minute walk to historic downtown Fairhaven and a short drive to WWU and downtown. Great home base to explore and enjoy Bellingham. Perfect for families. Pets are welcome.

About Amy Romanoff

We are a mother/daughter duo. We moved to Western Washington in April 2016 from Northern California and are loving this area. Danie (daughter) lives in Bellingham with her cat Jaguar and Amy (mother) lives with her husband Kent aboard their steel trawler in Blaine. In the short time we've lived here, we've discovered so many great places to eat and explore by foot and boat, yet we still have lots more to experience. This area is especially appealing to us because it's easy to enjoy the outdoors and it's very affordable. Our love for the area inspired us to start this business.

Amy Romanoff purchased this house in 2017

Why Amy Romanoff chose Happy Valley

The minute we saw this lovely property we knew we wanted to manage it as a VRBO. The location is ideal-- a short walk to downtown Fairhaven--the most desirable district in Bellingham. The house is naturally bright and cheerful and in very good condition. The grounds are special with fruit trees, vegetable garden, and rustic cabin in the backyard. There is so much going on here!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. It's a great place to explore Bellingham. The two en-suite bedrooms offer extra privacy and comfort. The full kitchen with dishwasher means you don't have to go out for every meal (but you may want to.) The backyard has a lot going on. Kids and adults will love to hang out in the rustic cabin.

But it feels like home because you have your own private patio and a nice shared backyard. Check out the cabin in back. If you bring kids they will probably want to sleep there. And if you need to do a laundry, the machines are right there.

Perfect place for a quick get-away in a quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Although we only live 30 minutes from Bellingham, we needed a place to stay for the weekend and this was the perfect place. This house was very clean and comfortable. We were also able to bring our dog, which was very much appreciated! We loved walking the neighborhood and seeing the deer. If you are looking for a great place close to great restaurants and parks, this is the place. Thanks so much!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this rental. It had everything we needed and was centrally located for everything we needed to do while in Bellingham. Amy got back to us quickly when we had a question and returned our damage deposit within a week of our stay! Easy and great experience.
