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 Birch Bay

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.

Kid free vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days/3 nights and we LOVED it! The cabin is beautifully decorated and it instantly felt like home. Everything that we needed was provided and the weather even let up enough that we were able to test out the hammock in the back yard which was very relaxing and a very welcome addition to the rental.

The only thing I would say were downfalls is the kitchen is so stocked that it was difficult to find places to store our groceries which was easily rectified by rearranging the cupboards to accommodate some food storage space! As well the sectional in the living room looks absolutely stunning but unfortunately is not the most comfortable to relax on, it was great for sitting and enjoying our morning coffee but we found it difficult to relax on for long periods of time (we had a Lord of the Rings marathon planned for one day).

I would very happily return to this rental and would recommend it to anyone i know who was wanting to visit Birch Bay.

Nice clean, well kept place.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and had a good layout. It was a 5 min bike ride to the ocean and Birch Bay park.

The only downside is that the intersection was surprisingly busy, and there seem to be a lot of loud Harley Davidsons and loud pickup trucks in the area. That said, it does quiet down at night.

Randy was very accommodating and replied very promply to any questions.

We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Dave, Glad you had a good time. The intersection does tend to get busy in the summer being the State Park is fairly close by and Beachwood resort is just down the street. The city added a 4 way stop earlier this year which slowed cars down (which is good). But trucks/bikes sometimes hit the gas as they get take off from the stop sign which can make loud noises. Thanks again, Randy -owner

Beach modern love

  • 5 of 5

Loved my 2 night stay at this home. The place is beautifully decorated, clean, and welcoming. The location near the enterance to the park was perfect. The bed was very comfortable and the living area boasted a large sectional and relaxation after a fun day crabbing. My friends in the area were jealous of my accommodations. Thanks Randy!

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.
