About Chris Volker
This rather large King crab came to dinner with a couple of his friends when we where visiting our son and his family in Korea. Most of the time we are in Bellingham maintaining the property you see in the pictures. My wife and I live in the downstairs flat.
Chris Volker purchased this House in 2000
Why Chris Volker chose South Hill
We have owned this classic home for 17 years and have made the upper flat available as a VRBO property. It took a while to put everything in order but the work has been worth it. The photos tell it all. The flats are completely separate from each other.
What makes this House unique
Centrally located to all the our region has to offer. Surprisingly private for being right in the middle of town

A Jewel of a Find
The flat is absolutely lovely -- sunny, spacious, immaculate, and incredibly comfortable. Chris and Sheryl are warm and gracious hosts and have paid attention to every detail. The setting has beautiful gardens and a pretty back deck; the view from the front of the house of Bellingham Bay is stunning, especially at sunset. The flat is very near to both Bellingham and Fairhaven. We look forward to returning.
Beautiful comfy flat
Beautiful flat in a great location. Owners left bfast items for us which was really a nice touch.
Beautiful home, stunning views
Loved our time at the South Hill Flat. Thank you!
Beautiful peaceful getaway
This house is perfection. From the gorgeous views to the deep dish tub, cozy beds, cable TV in every room, this is hands down one of the best rentals I’ve stayed in. The deck overlooking the backyard garden complete with koi pond was the perfect spot to start the morning with a cup of coffee and the songbirds. It’s close to campus so our daughter was able to get to us easily. The owners are lovely and were available for questions that came up. I highly recommend this home.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the flat: making coffee in the beautiful craftsman style kitchen and sitting in the living room enjoying the morning view of the bay. Everything was perfect. The flat is spacious and quite comfortable, with wonderful beds and linens. And what a great location! Just a couple of minutes from the lively Fairhaven neighborhood with it's quirky shops and restaurants or the walking trails along the bay. There is so much to do and see in and around Bellingham: we will be back!
Clean, beautiful view, great space
Stayed here for a conference for work, and definitely will be back.
Western Washington University is 2 blocks away with downtown Bellingham and historic Fairhaven equal distance and both easily reached by the interurban trail 2 blocks below by the bay. Lots of parking on the street. The convenience of location makes it easy to get to where you want to go. Take a water taxi to the San Juan Islands from Fairhaven. One hour to Vancouver B.C. or an hour and a half to Mt. Baker or Seattle. You will quickly see Bellingham has unlimited activities to offer with a central hub location.
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Health/beauty spa, Boating
