About randy castro

I have lived in the great state of Washington my whole life. Grew up in Olympia, WA and went to school in Eastern, WA. My wife was born in the Philippines and moved to Canada later in life. We are happily married and have two children. Spending time together as a family is priceless. We are currently living in Skagit County and wanted to find a get away place to recharge. We looked and really grew in love for the water and the quaint and fun town called Birch Bay. We found a newly built cabin and wanted to make it feel special and inviting. So the first thing we did when we got the key was to transform this cabin into a cozy-beach like retreat. A year later I added a fence around the backyard. We made sure every detail makes our place one of a kind and enjoyable.

randy castro purchased this cabin in 2014

Why randy castro chose Northwest Washington

We wanted something newer but also cozy. Sometimes we think bigger is better. This cabin feels so warm and inviting. It promotes you to spend time together and enjoy each others company. Also being so close to lot's of things to do and near the water was a huge decision for us to pick this place.

What makes this cabin unique

We just really loved the cabin with the woods behind our place. We added a nice backyard fence for a more privacy and relaxing experience. Besides that it's a great place and we have priced it so it is also affordable and a great value for the cost. We both believe the cabin had great upside and we have already done quite a bit to it in the short time we owned it. We just want to keep enhancing it year after year.

Clean and well kept

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights at the cabin and had a very relaxing experience.

The host makes sure the place is welcoming, decorated with taste and that you have everything you need to enjoy your stay.

The private garden was a bonus.

Hope to come back soon.

A cute little cottage that is perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little cottage that we enjoyed staying at. Lots of thoughtful touches and Randy provided good communication and seemed genuinely concerned about the quality of our stay. If you are going to be in this area, I highly recommend this cottage.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time doing something like this. We were celebrating our 13th anniversary out of town before our baby is due. The owner was great and made sure we had no problems finding or accessing the place. Once we got there, the place was very clean and quiet. Met the neighbor and he was very nice as well. I loved everything about it. Thank you Randy for your efforts in making our stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this place to others!!

Owner's Response: Your Welcome! You were great vacationers and a pleasure to work with. I'm so glad you got to celebrate your anniversary at my vacation rental. Sounds like you had fun in Birch Bay and the surrounding areas during your stay. And you're a trooper for doing all this while being pregnant. Thanks again for everything and I hope you will return another time down the road. Blessings, Randy -owner

Clean, comfortable, cozy, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Newly redocorated, nicely furnished with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Owner was very responsive to our calls. Location was convenient to the beach and state park but also located at a busy intersection near a resort. We loved having our own house and yard rather than a condo or rv lot. We would stay here again if we came to Birch Bay.
