About the property

3 Bedroom - 3 Bath - Family Home

Sandy Point is small beach front community that offers brilliant sunrises over Mt. Baker and the Twin Sisters, and awesome sunsets stretching across the Strait of Georgia and San Juan & Canadian Gulf Islands. Blue Heron, Eagles, Seagulls, sand-pipers, whale pods and seals provide constant entertainment. The miles of beach for agate hunting is truly an amazing adventure. This is a magical place! Peace, and relaxation at it's best!!

Relax, and enjoy this ocean experience from the large deck that is just steps away from the water. This home offers a spacious Living room with vaulted ceiling, and large windows across the whole room that give breathtaking views for all to see. A gas fireplace adds that cozy touch for the cool fall evenings. A flat screen TV is there for all of those sporting events that you just can't miss.

Sleeping arrangements include 3 bedrooms that sleep 6 with an additional Queen Sofa-Sleeper. This home will comfortably sleep 8. Three full bathrooms, and utility room with a washer & dryer make easy cleanup for everyone.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need and more! Settings for 12 are provided for small family, or your large group.

Vacation getaways are the perfect opportunity to make memories for you, and your family. Activities abound for all ages. Walks along the miles of beach, bike rides around the point, children’s playground with basketball court, and tennis courts just up the street, or simply relax on the deck on your lounger to experience the amazing sunset. There is a small marina that is open to the public, with guest moorage for all you boaters.

At Sandy Point you are only minutes from the amenities of Ferndale, and Bellingham. The Silver Reef Casino is just 5 minutes up the road for your gaming, and dining experience. Bellingham is just 20 minutes away which offers shopping, museums, dining, parks and recreation of all types. Vancouver, Canada is just 65 minutes north, and Whistler / Blackcomb, North America's premier Ski Resort, is only a gorgeous 2 1/2 hour drive. Seattle is a world class city just a 90 minute drive to the South.

So as you can see we are in the heart of a truly amazing part of this world.

I think you will find this home will surpass all of your expectations.

Let us help in making some fantastic memories for you and your family!

About Karl Vander Ploeg

We have lived in Whatcom County all of our lives, and this is our first experience with Sandy Point. It is amazing that we have lived this close to the water, and are just now experiencing this absolute amazing place. It has made us feel 10 years younger. Hopefully it will do the same for you. We are available to answer questions, and make suggestions to enhance your visit. Don't be afraid to ask.

Karl Vander Ploeg purchased this house in 2014

Why Karl Vander Ploeg chose Ferndale

This home has a stunning view of some of the San Juan Islands, and Strait of Georgia. The view is absolutely incredible as you are just steps from the water. There is a lot of activity on the water making the view in constant flux.

Lovely and restful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the views immensely! Sunsets were gorgeous - all the neighbors come out of houses to their decks, patios to savor the sunset - which we did, as well!

Easy access to Ferndale and Bellingham - golf, restaurants, cafes and groceries.

The owner was very thorough with directions, house is well equipped including sports/leisure equipment!

Would recommend this lovely home on the water to groups, couples, families.

We stayed late August 2017. House was very clean and a perfect location for our family gathering. The back yard beach and view is fantastic and the water toys and bikes provided are a joy. Karl and Karla are gracious hosts!

Perfect waterfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend! We had family come in from out of town and rented this house so we could all be together. It could not have been better! The house is lovely and has everything you need, and they even provided bikes, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards. Karl met us at check in and walked us through everything we needed to know, including neighborhood information, grocery stores, etc. Going to sleep listening to the waves was heaven, and during the day we explored Bellingham & Fairhaven, one group ducked up to Canada, and we spent lots of time on the water and walking the beach looking for agate and sea glass. Relaxing, peaceful, beautiful, with every amenity you can think of. We hope to go back!
