About this listing

My house is located in the Sunnyland neighborhood on what is essentially a dead end street. It's a quiet neighborhood yet close to everything you may need or want to enhance your stay in Bellingham. There is a large park directly across from the house. Trader Joe's, the Pita Pit, Avenue Bread & many other restaurants & local breweries are 2 blocks away. The marina is a 5 minute drive where you can rent kayaks & paddleboards. Downtown offers more breweries, local music and the Upfront Theatre.

The space

What makes the house unique is its layout. While you are here you will essentially have the whole house to yourself. I welcome you to come and share my home with me and my housemate who lives in the studio out back.

I have listed my home on Airbnb rather than Home Away because my housemate and I will occasionally access the kitchen and bathroom. We make it a point to stay out of your way and choose times that will not interfere with your privacy.

The sunlight floods into the house making it bright and welcoming which is a bonus in the Pacific Northwest. If it's raining you can enjoy the premium cable package on a smart UHD TV and blast internet speed.

I provide coffee, tea and a great kitchen space to prepare whatever meals you like. There's plenty of fridge and cupboard space. I also provide amenities in the bathroom which has recently been remodeled. There's lots of counter space and a full length mirror behind the door as well as the full wall mirror over the sink and counter. The covered patio is a great place to relax and enjoy the birds, whatever's blooming in the gardens and the gas bbq. There is a laundry room off the kitchen with washer and dryer if you're here more than 5 days or if the little ones are in need.

Guest access

The only areas I ask you not to access are my room which is off the laundry room on the other side of the kitchen and separated by a door and the studio out back where my housemate lives.

Interaction with guests

I am a private person but look forward to meeting you and provide any information I can to make your stay in Bellingham more enjoyable.

Other things to note

My housemate who lives in the studio will occasionally access the bathroom and we both make our coffee in the kitchen in the mornings. Our use of the kitchen will happen minimally and always mindful of not intruding on your privacy.

Thanks for a lovely stay Faith. Love the outdoor garden and patio space and your home was very clean. Location perfect. If privacy is an issue to you, I would look elsewhere, as it is a little more hostel-like with shared kitchen and bathroom, but everyone very pleasant. Nice to meet the locals!

The place is good, the mattress made noises and has a big dip in the center. We felt absolute lack of privacy , owner came in the house without announcement several times a day.

Response from Faith:
I'm sorry about the mattress. Haven't had anyone else let me know that. I'm also sorry that you felt a lack of privacy. I did knock every time before I came in the kitchen and came in only in the mornings I was at the house to make coffee as the site states and once during the day in the 5 days you were here to put something in the refrigerator. Perhaps if you had read the listing more carefully you would have not been surprised by my occasional and very thoughtful "entrances" into my kitchen. Perhaps if you want complete privacy in a place where no one cares who is in their home you'd be more comfortable in a hotel.

Very central and easy to get around from this location. Lovely patio to sit outside after a long day of shopping. The place was clean and the host very welcoming.

Faith was an excellent host, and explained everything about the house thoroughly. Although there was room for more than just one person, of which I was, it could accommodate 4-5 guests very easily. I was there mainly to shower and sleep as I was gone the majority of the time. The bedroom that I choose was on the East side and the sun comes up very early in the morning, so without a room darkener, or you like to sleep in, you might want to bring eye shades. The bed was comfortable and the weather was perfect with cool nights and warm days, so it made for late nights and early mornings. Each morning I had my coffee on the covered patio as I enjoy the solitude and morning fresh air. The house is very centrally located, on a very quiet street, close to the freeway for easy egress and exit, and is withing walking distance of many restaurants and shops. The park across the street was a nice place to walk and watch the people bringing their pets to play.

Clean, comfortable, semi-private space. Near a nice trail that made it easy to get around by bike. Faith and Ricardo were friendly and helpful.

I have lived in Bellingham for 11 years and am originally from the East Coast. I run my own business so I'm fortunate to have flexibility. I enjoy gardening but my favorite place to be is on the water. My sailboat lives at the harbor which is literally 5 minutes down the road which means I won't be around to bug you while you enjoy your stay here. I'm also only a phone call or text away and am happy to do whatever I can to enhance your visit in Bellingham.
