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.

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.

Perfect for my needs.

  • 4 of 5

Cozy and comfortable. Attractive decor. Within walking distance to beach and resteraunts. Road construction that created a great deal of noise the first few days of my week long stay. Randy was empathetic and provided me a partial credit for those days which made up for the inconvenience. When I called him to let him know the issue he responded within a few hours. Other than the road construction it was a lovely place to stay. A peaceful back yard with a nice wooded area.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for informing me of the road work. We went up after your stay for the 4th and the new gravel on the roads were still settling as well. We didn't notice it as much on the next day. I'm sure all the 4th traffic helped. Thanks again, glad you enjoyed your stay. Randy

Very nice, clean cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very clean, lots of room and nicely decorated with great knick knacks for the beachy/seashore theme. We had a nice stay except for it rained our entire time (kinda standard for this time of year), luckily Bellingham is close for shopping & movie theater since combing the beach wasn't an option. Only draw back is the 4 way intersections does get busy especially at end of the day & some vehicles have loud mufflers. Adding a small corner cabinets or table in bathroom would be helpful for guests to set their stuff on (makeup bag, lotion, curling iron etc) instead of keeping in bedroom. But will definitely recommend this very well kept cottage to friends & family.

Enjoyed this charming little house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this clean house in the country, sparsely furnished, which also was appreciated. It suited our needs for a good night's sleep, the house being perfect for 2 people. Convenient to the beach; not far from Blaine or Birch Bay, and well kept up. Randy is very helpful, if you run into a problem. Truly enjoyed looking out at the woods during morning exercise, and seeing the night moon over the trees. Thanks! We hope to be back. Judy & John

Thailand shopping trip and R & R.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 night stay was great...very cozy during a wind and rain storm. The electric fireplace is a nice touch. It was very clean and we did not want for anything.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for your stay. You got a pretty wet and windy weather storm. Glad you enjoyed your stay. I've tried to make my place cozy so when the weather does not cooperate, you can still relax and enjoy yourself. Thanks again, it was a pleasure having you stay at my rental.
