I have stay here numerous time and every time I come back I am so pleased. We did a tour of Vancouver and stayed at a few hotels there, which were so, so for the price! We com to Birch Bay and pay a fraction of the cost and have a BEAUTIFUL 2 bedroom suite with an amazing view of...

Beautiful hotel right on the beach... just walk across the street and dip your toes in the ocean! The room was beautiful and we got a nice breeze with the patio door and window open. We had ceiling fans in both the bedroom and living room, a fireplace for a little romantic atmosphere, a washer & drier in the bathroom...

We had a 3 bedroom unit that overlooked the beach. Every evening was a spectacular sunset. There was access to a rooftop grill area that also had wonderful views and comfortable seating, as well as 2 first class barbecue grills. The staff was responsive and attentive and took care of everything we asked for.

We recently stayed at Raintree’s Sandcastle at Birch Bay for a week on an RCI exchange. As usual, we had a great spacious condo on the third floor on the side facing the pool. The only down side to facing the pool and the ocean is that you have to listen to children scream in the pool for hours. I...

This was a girl cousin getaway where we just enjoy each others company. I booked us a two bedroom two bath thru RCI. At check in Jeannie was warm and put me at ease that we had gotten a great room and she was so right! I loved the view from 318 and we had a gigantic deck. Two full...

My husband and I traveled to Birch Bay for our honeymoon. We stayed in a gorgeous three bedroom suite with view of the bay. The beds were luxurious, the kitchen was perfect and the couch was big and comfy. Not to mention the rooftop deck - catch a sunset, you will not regret it. The front desk was so nice;...

My husband and I came here to spend the new year weekend. Our kids gave us a weekend away as a Christmas present. This is a condo, and we are thoroughly enjoying it. The kitchen is fully stocked, modern, like other world mark properties. The furniture looks kinda dated, but it seems like it's supposed to look that way (like...

My family and I stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with 3 beds, and although the entire room was very spacious, the furniture was incredibly dated (the couch and chairs in the living room looked like they were at least 30 years old), the TV service was incredibly staticky, and they only allowed for 2 devices on their WiFi, which...

Thank you for your review. We are in the process of replacing the carpet in the common areas and rooms, and that work will continue the next few months. All of the rooms look out at either the Bay or the open area behind the resort, with views of Mount Baker.

We spent 4 nights at the Worldmark units at Sandcastle. The accommodations were a step up from Birch Bay Worldmark next door. Larger rooms, more comfortable furniture. Both are all right, but Sandcastle is really comfortable
