About Martha Holmes

My husband and I (Jonathan and Martha) currently live in Los Altos, California (about 30 miles south of San Francisco).. We have lived and worked in this area for 30 years and raised our son who is now 20 and in college . We all fell in love with the Blaine area when visiting my mother and brother who have lived there for 7 years. We finally decided to buy a vacation home and the minute we walked into this one we knew it was perfect. Jonathan is planning to retire soon and we hope to split out time between Blaine and Los Altos. It is a wonderful little town and beautiful home.

Even though we are not "on site" we have many local contacts and I am available by phone all the time if you need anything

Martha Holmes purchased this house in 2014

Spacious, light, clean, with great views and charming decor.

We had sparkling weather for the Wings Over Water birding festival in March. The house was a lovely retreat from the busy birding crowds at the Middle School. Being seniors, we appreciated that it was a single level house. The kitchen was well equiped. Only one complaint: the oven temperature regulator wasn't working. The grassy areas outside, both front and back made it very convenient for us to walk our two little dogs. And Monfort Park is only three houses away. The views from the large front windows was beautiful and the neighborhood was pretty and quiet. Lizzie's Grill is close and their fish and chips were very good. And the Semiahmoo Resort Restaurant is also a plus. We hope to return. It was a 5 star weekend.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our group of two couples and a single stayed for the NYE 2018 weekend. Wonderful place. Very comfortable. The couch in the picture has been replaced with a larger one. The house has a very well supplied kitchen (pots, pans, utensils, plates, towels, etc), as well as the entire house is well stocked with games, blankets, etc. As if you lived there. Typically I have found the pictures of rentals can make the the rooms look bigger than what they really are. That does not apply to this house. The rooms are spacious as shown. We all highly recommend this home for a stay.

Beautiful waterfront views!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for our three-generation family Christmas! Blaine is a small, quiet town right on the border— an ideal location for our Canadian and American family members to meet. The house was decorated with a tree and all sorts of thoughtful holiday additions that made us feel right at home. Very quiet, clean, comfortable beds, a terrific view, and a well-stocked kitchen with room for multiple cooks. It was charming, cozy and just perfect for the six of us. We walked in nearby parks every day, despite the very cold winter weather. And after the chilly excursions, we could come home, turn on the fireplace, make hot cocoa and watch the abundance of waterfowl, including bald eagles, from the wall of windows across the great room.

You can't get down to the water at the house (unless you scramble down a steep embankment) but the beach at Semiamoo is just a few minutes away. Birch Bay has a nice beach park with trails and a playground for kids as well. And you can wander through the Montfort Park wetlands trail at the end of the street.

We really appreciated how responsive Martha was, quickly answering emails and giving detailed information about the rental. It all went very smoothly.

Martha was so accommodating and helpful. We needed a home during a remodel. This home was a joy to live in. Open floor plan on the water...heaven!

great, relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our little group, two couples and two dogs thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing weekend. We explored some local restaurants and also cooked in the well-appointed kitchen.

We walked through little Monfort Park with the dogs and watched the tide come in and go out. We really appreciate Sawyer and Stuart were allowed to join us. Our group is already talking about a possible return next year.

The house is as depicted on the site and very clean. A great location.

Located right on the boarder of Washington and Canada, this is a perfect central location for many activities. Day trips to Vancouver, or the quaint town of LaConnor as well as many of the surrounding islands. Also quick trips to Bellingham, WA, the small Dutch town of Lynden, WA and White Rock Canada.
