We had a great time. The place was clean and busy. For having a full house everyone working there was great. You could tell they were working hard but kept a good attitude the whole time. Only had one issue and Bill the repair man was there in a minutes. Even though it was an issue I made he was... More

We are RCI members and traded into this resort as we wanted to visit Washington and Oregon. We drove and were very pleased when we arrived at this beautiful resort right on the banks of Birch Bay. Check in was a breeze, the lady on the desk got us a water facing suite which was huge, very comfortable and came... More

We spent a week in May in a three-bedroom condo. Apartment: We had a very big apartment on the 4th floor but there was a lot of wasted space. Furniture (especially the sitting room) looked very dated and we hated it. But the kitchen was modern with good appliances and the laundry room was spacious. They DO NOT clean the... More

We traveled here for my Dad's 60th birthday. The rooms were nice and spacious. Only down fall was there was no housekeeping available besides trash removal. The staff was helpful finding the grocery store and leading us to great ideas for places to eat and things to do. The best part was the tide coming in and out of the... More

We stayed at this motel for a week and it was very enjoyable. The check-in people were very helpful, especially Jeanne. It was a central location to branch out to other towns, cities and places to see. The rooms were large and nicely furnished. They cleaned the rooms every day. Restaurants were close by. The only complaint was the free... More

We recently stayed at Raintree’s Sandcastle at Birch Bay for a week on an RCI exchange. We had a great condo on the third floor on the side facing the pool. This unit had a different layout and had a more spacious living area but the master bedroom was smaller. Once again, as in another resort we stayed at the... More

We stayed through a timeshare exchange with the intention to use as a base for traveling to Seattle. It was the closest location available to us through our timeshare. We knew it would be a bit of a trip to get to Seattle (about 2 hours drive), but also wanted to visit Vancouver, BC. Vancouver is a short drive since... More

we had a 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo facing the water - loved the view of sunsets from the living room, dining room, and kitchen windows. it was a winter visit, so we didn't linger on the balcony. the only negative was all the ugly power lines right across the view. too bad the area hasn't gone to the trouble...

This place is absolutely gorgeous. It's like home living. I was privileged to stay in a 2 bedroom suite that was larger than my 3 bedroom apartment. The staff was awesome and helpful. I would recommend this resort to everyone. I went off season so the town was pretty dead, but it was nice and quiet.

We spent two weeks at the Sandcastle in September. We were very pleased that we chose to stay there. The room, although only a one bedroomed apartment was comfortably large. We were even able to store our bicycles without them being in the way. Although the furniture looked a bit dated, it was obviously of a good quality. The whole... More

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! No matter what the season Birch-Bay is a great place to relax and take in the many sights . Hopefully while you were here you were able to take in some of the hiking and bike trails as it sounds you had come prepared. We hope you are able to return soon. More
