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.
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.
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.
- Please take your shoes off when you enter the house from any direction. I have nice clean rugs and places to put your shoes.
- Smoking is welcomed on the patio where you will find a comfy seating area, an ashtray, the gas bbq you are welcome to use and a wonderfully private back yard. It's a great place to relax and enjoy.
- Our home is not a party place. Certainly we want you to enjoy your stay while you're here. We ask that you be mindful of noise level between 11pm and 7am.
-Please close the living room curtains at dusk and open them back up in the morning.
-Please park out front of the house on the street where there is plenty of parking and your vehicle will be quite safe.
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.
