Photos and Description of this South Hill holiday house

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

Overlooking Bellingham Bay with an ever changing view to the west. This classic flat has been completely updated yet retains its 100 year old charm. Ten foot ceilings and craftsmen woodwork throughout making this a memorable getaway. Two large casement windows open wide to bring the amazing view right into the living room. Comfortably sleeping 5 with three bedrooms and two baths one featuring a giant tub with a view of the bay. The kitchen features hardwood floors, granite counters and service for up to 9. A large deck with gas BBQ adjacent to the kitchen dining area is great for outside entertaining with a private garden featuring a Koi pond. Located in a quiet semi-residential neighborhood with the Cliffhouse restaurant across the street for a meal out or just cocktails on their deck.

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 Bellingham

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.

Never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at The Flat, and I was excited to return.

Again, everything was as described. The Flat is appointed to tastefully, it is truly a pleasure to be there.

I would highly recommend this vacation home for families or couples who want a quiet, comfortable place to stay with wonderful views and great hosts.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It was so peaceful and relaxing, with the beautiful view of the water and sunsets. The backyard was quiet and peaceful with the koi pond, perfect for reading or enjoying a cup of tea. The house was very clean, the beds were really comfortable, and the owners were so friendly and helpful as well. The location was perfect too, close to town and a short walk down to the waterfront park. Can't say enough good things about this place! Thank you so much for a lovely stay!!

Wonderful two weeks at this home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the South Hill Bellingham Flat for two weeks. The apartment is beautifully decorated, immaculate, and well stocked. The kitchen is well designed and modern with a huge amount of space. The appliances are top of the line. The backyard garden and Koi pond look like they were created for a magazine cover. The owners have spent a great deal of time and effort creating a beautiful living space.

We loved sitting in the family room with an amazing view of Bellingham Bay. We were fortunate to rent during the Fourth of July holiday so we had a perfect view of the City's fireworks.

We were surprised by how close the apartment is to downtown Bellingham. We were able to easily walk into town. Western Washington University is only a few blocks away and Fairhaven is also very close.

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
