House Rules

We want you to feel relaxed and welcome in our home, but we do have a few rules. As stated above, please don't bring pets and absolutely NO smoking. We also live in the home and would like a quiet time no later than 11 PM at night. We'll do the same for you. Please enjoy looking at the animals but we ask you NOT TO TOUCH them. Grease from hands and fingers gets onto the hair and they soon begin to collect dirt. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen so just put your dirty dishes in it and we'll run it later. We prefer that you take your shoes off, and that way you can also enjoy the heated floors

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - A short set of stairs is necessary to reach the unit.

A great location in Birch Bay, easy drive to great food and great golf. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the media room and popcorn machine were a hit. It was perfect for our one night stay and the location to great food and golf were perfect. The owners were great hosts.

Our stay was fantastic and the place is even better than the photographs indicate. The hosts are wonderful people and very gracious. Everything from the beds to the yard was very comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

We loved our stay at John's house for our Anniversary and wish we had scheduled more time there as two nights was not enough. John and Lila were excellent hosts with a very nice home.. They also surprised us with delicious cake for our Anniversary. The kitchen was well-equipped so we were able to do some cooking and relax. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely return

What a fun place to spend the weekend! We came as a group of four to enjoy each other's company away in a laid-back setting. John and his wife were thoughtful hosts who are well-prepared for guests. They made check-in easy, gave us a quick tour of the space and didn't miss any details. Easy to reach him by text message if we needed anything. Feels very private with a view of the water from the hot tub. Although the owners live upstairs, we didn't hear them at all while there. The movie room is a fun plus - giant screen (even bigger than expected from the photos) and comfy leather couches, plus it is soundproofed so no worrying about disturbing the owners. There is also a little popcorn machine that we didn't get around to using, but is a fun complement to the movie room. Full kitchen and even some breakfast essentials for us in the fridge in case we wanted to make coffee, eggs and toast in the morning.

Stayed the weekend at John and Lila's place at Semiahmoo with another couple. The home was a very nice downstairs second home with its own outside entrance. It is amazing in the furnishings and appointments. Very comfortable beds and plenty of room to stretch out. We found tea and coffee in the cupboard, full kitchen, home theater room, hot tub, with two bed and two baths. Full plush linens, bathrobes, and even a washer dryer! From the lower patio we had a very nice view of the bay. John and Lila made us feel extremely at home. On our next visit to the Blaine area we would not hesitate to stay here. One caution. John is a very accomplished game hunter with many trophies (about 20) adorning the main room you will be staying. While I am not a hunter I found them extremely interesting. If you have an extreme dislike for game trophies, please stay elsewhere.

We couldn't have been happier with our first Airbnb Adventure. Everything about our visit, from booking through our departure was effortless and lovely. John and Lila were very gracious hosts in their beautiful home. I was able to easily communicate by phone and text with both of the owners, and they offered advice and help for navigating around town during our visit to Blaine for a family wedding. We were impressed by the thoughtful touches with the accommodations; chocolates on our nightstands, plush bedding, beautiful bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, private entrance, and lots of R&R space. The scenery outside was breathtaking, the interior decorating was stunning, and everything was so clean and comfortable. We frankly found it hard to leave! I definitely would recommend this to anyone visiting Washington State, and hopefully I will get a chance to visit again someday. Thank you again for making a special family trip even more memorable. :)

John and Lila's home is beautiful in a beautiful area. it was very comfortable. We wished we could have been there longer to enjoy their huge theater room. Everything was spotless and the beds were comfy. Lovely quiet area. Lila had MARY Kay products around and we really loved trying these first class amenities. Thank you John and Lila.
