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.

Spacious, Elegant Flat with Water View

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (parents with two adult children) stayed in this flat for five nights and hated to leave. The kitchen is huge and modern, the living room view spectacular, and the master suite charming. The deck and garden were fabulous too. We had no difficulty with the many steps, but some others might. There is noise from nearby train tracks, but one hears that throughout Bellingham. It was a super base for our family reunioning nearby and some sightseeing as well. Minor quibble is that there is no shower in the master bath (only a hand-held sprayer mounted on the tub frame), could use more seating in living room, and the expectation that only four people will be populating a large flat with 3 bedrooms seems unrealistic. (We paid extra for our fifth person who was there only 3 nights; 5 persons is the max allowed.) Owner (who lives downstairs) seems very sensitive to the number of people in the flat, even limiting the number of visitors. Not a problem for us this trip, but had we wished to host a lunch or a tea for our local relatives, the rules of this flat would not have allowed it. Only 9 persons may be on the property at a time. Nonetheless, the flat met our needs and exceeded our expectations and with the caveats mentioned above, we recommend it highly and would welcome the opportunity to stay there again on a future trip. Also, communication with Chris was very good and payment by credit card extremely convenient.

Birthday Celebration

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from an absolutely perfect long weekend, celebrating our friend's 50th birthday. The accommodations were wonderful for two couples - the kitchen was ideal for cooking a meal for eight and the view from the living room is spectacular. The hosts are close by if you need them, but you don't even notice you are sharing the property with anyone else. We can't wait to go back in the Summer to take advantage of the beautiful backyard and deck.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of three generations stayed here and we were super happy with everything about this house. The home is beautifully finished with excellent appliances and gorgeous detailing.

The location is great and we enjoyed the views from every room. The place was very clean on our arrival and all the linens etc.. were really nice and well stocked.

My only suggestion would be to have a few more basic items stocked in the kitchen. Our group likes to cook and it is always a welcome addition when an owner has oil, vinegar, and a few spices in the kitchen.

Great home; great location; great owners!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed here while visiting our WWU daughter, who liked it so much she stayed with us rather than at her own place. One evening we used the new Weber gas grill to prepare fresh salmon on the large deck for our daughter and her friends. They enjoyed dining on the deck overlooking the beautiful back yard and were enthusiatic about the flat. While morning coffee on the deck is great, it is even better to take an enjoyable 15 to 20 minute walk on a nature trail to Woods Coffee Shop on Boulevard Park. Fairhaven and its great bookstores and restaurants are a hilly 30 minute walk away. The Cliff House restaurant is right across the street. WWU is straight up the hill as the crow flies but can be reached only by meandering through an unsolveable maze of streets, providing a great opportunity for viewing early 20th century architecture. Cv and Sheryl have not overlooked anything in their efforts to make this a great getaway flat. We have found our home away from home when visiting our daughter. (Only one caution -- if you cannot negotiate stairs, this place is not for you.)

Wonderful Place to Stay ..But I want to keep it a secret!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 10days in October when visiting our son and family. We had sun shine, fog and rain the apartment was cozy and had a beautiful relaxing view of the bay. Everything you could wish for was there. Spotlessly clean, with plenty of towels and a washer and dryer.
On Demand TV. DVD player and movies, XBox and books in every room. The back garden and flowers,chickens, a Koi pond and a wonderful grey cat the would stroll by. A great kitchen for cooking if you wished.
We managed to get our legs back in shape walking the stairs - great exercise, The only thing if you are older and cannot manage to carry heavy bags up 2 flights of stairs you should think about it... Or not bring heavy bags... I would opt for the last one as this is a must stay apartment.

Looking forward to out next visit

Comfortable Spacious Get Away

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, daughter and I were looking for weekend get away from Vancouver and found this great place that fit all our needs. Our daughter loved the Koi pond, pet chickens, trundle bed and air guitar;
my husband appreciated the stainless Viking gas range and all the custom cherry cabinetry details throughout and I loved the cosy king bed suite and bay view bath soaker tub bathroom we hope to use next time.
This spacious home and its large south facing deck would comfortably house any family in style. The friendly owners have taken great care to cover all the details that make a get away enjoyable.
We look forward to visiting this charming home again.

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
