About the Owner

I am a retired teacher who's always appreciated well-appointed rental properties for long or short-term getaways. I've traveled to Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia but enjoy my time here in the Pacific Northwest immensely.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was the perfect getaway for me and my friends. My girlfriend loved the surprise and everything was awesome. The pictures on the website don't do it justice!! Thanks for letting us use our condo, and for sure we will want to have it again, hopefully for more than one night next time!

Good morning Diane

All is good at the condo. We had a great time with our family.

We would like to mention that we don't believe the overall cleanliness would be up to your standards. Floors clean but we found some small toys and puzzle pieces around furniture. No garbage bag under the sink. We brought some of our own. Minimal dish soap. Counters and appliances had to be cleaned before we were able to use them.

This is not a real complaint but something you should know. We know your standards are much better than the way we found the place.

When you send the damage deposit back could you make sure it is in US funds so we can deposit it into out US accounts. That way we don't get dinged again for the exchange.

Thank you again.

We hope you had a great Christmas and Happy new year..

Dennis and Lorraine.

San Juan 101

  • 5 of 5
This condo was so amazing and comforting.. a very sad event had just occurred in my life and I needed a special place to think, relax and gather my thoughts...and this was just that... a very special, wonderful,serene place to do so. The view of the bay was so peaceful and being able to talk a few steps to get to it, was just perfect. The location of this place being so close to Canada was an extra perk. Taking the ferry over to Victoria was an extra bonus too. It was great to be within walking distance to the restaurants close by, especially to enjoy the tasteful clam chowder bread bowl. Wonderful, peaceful stay!!!

Great Beachfront Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at San Juan 101 was fabulous. The pictures do not do it justice. The condo could not be any closer to the action. Each morning we woke to an amazing view of the beach where we could watch beachcombers and birds enjoying the expansive tide flats. This same view is also found in the kitchen, which I loved throughout the day as I prepared meals with everything I needed. The patio is directly across from the beach but also opens onto the green space of the complex, allowing our children to safely run and play to their hearts content. They made fast friends with neighboring children. We couldn't have been happier with the amendments of the condo. Every detail was addressed, including little extra surprises here and there. Thank you so much!

San Juan 101 is a gem!

Location, location, location! This condo is literally a stone's throw from the bay. The views are amazing. It is so centrally located in Birch Bay, that everything is within walking distance from the condo. And, if you're not much of a walker and more of a people watcher, this is the best seat in the house!

The condo itself has plenty of amenities, and is stocked better than any condo we've ever stayed in. In our opinion, this is the place to stay in Birch Bay!

From the Owner

This property spoke to me because of it's nearness to the water, allowing guests to listen to the ebb and flow of the surf from bedroom windows. This location soothes my soul and reminds me of the amazing beauty of God's creation.
