    Perfect For Our 3 Week Stay While Moving

    The property is exactly as described/pictured. The 2 bdrm/ 2 bath house, with its large private patio area, allowed us to relax in the evenings after dealing with movers, boxes, and technicians at the new house. The house was clean, well-ventilated, and equipped with a washer/dryer. The owners are super easy to communicate with and incredibly kind. You can't beat this very private, stand alone rental house for a reasonably priced stay in the lovely, upscale neighborhood of Magnolia and you can't beat owners who treat you like you are an honored guest!

    My girlfriend and I stayed at the Magnolia Memories House in Seattle from January 13th through January 16th, 2020. We were delighted! The house is located in a charming and peaceful neighborhood, close to downtown Seattle. The front and back yards are neat and tidy, featuring birdbaths, comfy lawn chairs and table, and a BBQ. The house is wonderfully appointed with floral art, relaxing furniture, a gourmet kitchen with marble countertops, and a spacious whirlpool bath tub and two large showers. We enjoyed hanging out at the dining room table with the newspaper, our laptops, and each other. The master bedroom features a romantic gas fireplace and an, oh so comfortable, king sized bed. The bedrooms had ample closet and drawer storage space and the bathrooms had generous countertop and drawer space, as well. We were very comfortable and relaxed in the Magnolia Memories house and would love to return! Thank you so much for wonderful hospitality!

    We stayed in Magnolia Memories over a three day period in June. We have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years, and this one has been the best. It would be very hard to find anything that it is lacking. A great house for two couples! All review comments regarding the house's location to grocery shopping, bus stop, quiet neighbourhood, etc. were accurate. We would definitely stay here again, when visiting Seattle. Thanks Eileen and Debra, your accommodations were very much appreciated!

    Magnolia Memories is a sweet little cottage with 2 BR & 2 full baths. It's decorated so nicely and has everything you'd need, including pancake mix! Ellen and Debra were so easy to work with and the property was exactly as promised. The neighborhood was so nice and walking to the grocery a couple of blocks away and a few restaurants made it super convenient since we didn't rent a car. One of the things I loved is that the owner has put little signs all over the house with instructions on how to use things (ie. jet tub, heater) That took the guess work out of using these items and set clear expectations. I was really happy about that. The beds were comfortable and with 4 adults staying for 2 days, we were not crowded at all. The property is a 5 minute ride from the Smith Cove cruise port in a residential neighborhood, so if you want to add a couple of days in Seattle to your cruise, this is the perfect place to do it. About 10-15 min Uber ride to Pike Place Mkt, Queen Anne & Pioneer Square, so if you want somewhere that is quiet to rest, but easy to get to the high points of Seattle, this is the place... you won't be disappointed!

    From beginning to end...owner/manager great at communication. They even made exception when hubby broke foot...had to travel later. Everything was very clean...and I'm particular. Being a gourmet chef...was treat to have such well stocked kitchen in a rental...and while kitchen was small...high end quality of kitchen outranked size! Gorgeous fenced back yard for our little puppy...perfect for summer in magnolia...though we visited late October. loved walking neighbourhood with charming safe streets away from noise of downtown....but close enough we did all the touristy things Seattle...while returning to quiet neighbourhood. Bonus...great little Italian place couple blocks away...walking distance. Also luv privacy of two bedrooms at opposite sides of house. Our fav part...was Halloween...when lots neighbourhood kids came "trick-or-treating'...we still laugh about some of the kids outfits...super cute. One young boy was "with the CIA"...😎�😎�😎�... "wow...never seen that before! So funny! Only thing missing was providing a mop for people to keep Floors clean after cooking.

    First of all, when I booked this beautiful home, I could not wait to get there. I spoke with Debra and Eileen and both were very responsive answering all questions and booking is right away. When we got to the house we were extremely happy and overjoyed at the space and how comfortable it was. The beds were super comfy and the master bathroom exquisite! The second bedroom and bathroom were just as nice. We had everything we needed and boy did we enjoy the backyard!! The weather was nice and cool so it was nice to sit outside enjoying coffee. Eileen told us we could eat cherries from the huge tree out back. I really wish we had booked more than two nights. Actually, we tried to book the house for our after cruise stay but it was already taken. Sad face!! The two nights prior to our cruise was amazing at Magnolia Memories. Thanks so much Eileen for answering my calls and thanks Debra for booking us! I really hope we will be back to Seattle and can stay here. All my best to you both!!

    This property was very nice and clean. The owners definitely cared about making the renters as comfortable as possible. It was a very short stay so we can't really comment on the kitchen but it appeared to be well equipped. We had planned on using the grill one night but discovered it required charcoal which we didn't get so we decided against that plan. The beds were comfortable. The over the counter sinks in the bathroom were nice but the added height made it difficult for a short person like me to use. It was really easy to communicate with the owner. The area is beautiful although a bit further from greenwood where my daughter lives. I would recommend this property to others.

    This was our first experience with VRBO accommodation. We had traveled from Australia to meet our 2 daughters in Seattle for 4 days. I found the booking, payment and entry to the property to be very well explained. The house and garden were every thing we expected and more. The home owner Debra provided additional information via email prior to our arrival, for example how unusually hot it would be at the time of our visit and some helpful hints to overcome this. I have no hesitation in recommending Magnolia Memories, particularly for a quiet family get together in suburbia. ( PS A short walk to grocery store, cafes and pub)

    Every place we stayed was great and each was better than the previous one. Magnolia Memories was the last stay on our trip and it was wonderful. The house is very nicely decorated, comfortable, well supplied, good internet and TVs and the location was great. A very quiet and safe neighbor which is conveniently located. It was very easy to get to downtown Seattle to see all the sights. Magnolia has a little village of shops and restaurants that looks interesting and has a Starbucks. Also, on 34th going north is a very nice grocery store with many upscale products. Did not get to go to Magnolia Park which looks like a nice place to have a picnic and go down to the shoreline for a stroll. I definitely recommend Magnolia Memories and would definitely come back to it.

    My wife and I spent a two week vacation in Seattle in late Sept-early Oct. We were not familiar with the city but after some research (incl. asking folks on TripAdvisor fora for advice) we narrowed our search to about 4 neighborhoods including Magnolia. Magnolia would seem to be a little remote for a tourist vacation but in fact it is perfect. It is actually closer to downtown and to interesting neighborhoods and parks than many of the areas that appear to be more centrally located because of the total lack of traffic in getting anywhere. 10 minutes to the center of downtown maximum; right across the bridge from Ballard and Fremont and so on. This house is in outstanding condition; the owner and agents are extremely easy to contact and to deal with; the kitchen and the bathrooms are in totally updated contemporary shape (tho we only cooked at home once in the two weeks but the kitchen is completely equipped for everything); the separation of the two bedrooms and their bathrooms by the LR/DR/kitchen area made having guests stay over on one weekend extremely comfortable (and noiseless); the backyard is beautiful and the covered area for picnicking or just sitting outside is perfect. Landscaping both front and back are maintained as well as you would do at home (for some folks likely better). The house is absolutely to be recommended and I can't stress enough the advantages of the Magnolia neighborhood, a public library branch across the street and its small downtown (The Village) with one of Seattle's most outstanding restaurants, two other very acceptable restaurants, a coffee shop that opens before dawn, supermarket, drug store, banks, a gas station, a liquor store and all in a remarkably tranquil environment where folks actually walk (early and late) and it's green beyond belief (well, it's Seattle).

    We have visited the Ballard/Magnolia area for several years and this is the best home we've rented yet. We come to visit family in Seattle and this provided a great place to hang out, cook meals and it is close to downtown and other sights. It was priced reasonable for the location and amenities. The staff was very professional and easy to work with. The home is on one level except for 2 steps down to the 2nd bedroom so good access for anyone with disabilities. The beautiful backyard with patio, tent, fire pit and BBQ grill was a highlight. Landscaping is first class. The carport with off street parking was nice too. Also plenty of street parking. The kitchen was fully outfitted with all the appliances and accessories you could need. The decorating is tastefully done and makes it feel like home. The location is excellent. Magnolia is a great neighborhood with grocery stores, Starbucks, restaurants and shops only 3-4 blocks away. A public library is across the street. A great neighborhood for walking with Discovery Park and the Ballard locks about 1 mile away. Our new favorite dessert spot is Hot Cakes in Ballard. And Matador nachos and Ballard Pizza too. Magnolia Memories will be the first place we check for our next visit to Seattle.

    The house was so comfortable, homey and better than the pictures. It was very clean with all the amenities one can need. The property manager was very prompt in responding to a question I had, I would highly recommend this property. The surrounding area is very quiet and well kept. Seattle has a lot to offer, we were there for a concert and family gathering; there are beautiful parks nearby and the grocery store is within walking distance. The house had a lot of literature on things to do in Seattle.

    A memorable place

    My sisters and I recently stayed at Magnolia Memories. The house is lovely with all that you will need for a comfortable stay. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. We felt like we were staying in a small town and yet the city was minutes away.

    We stayed here because we wanted a more quiet place to enjoys away from the hustle/bustle of downtown. My best friend and his son and my boys and I met here from California to watch our Seahawks play the Niners. The house was perfect. Great quiet area, walked to local restaurants, grocery store very close. The house was very clean, felt like home in 5 minutes. We loved the multiple tv's so we could have lots of football games on when we were home ( everything we can't do at home with our wives! ) Kitchen was great... everything we needed. We used BBQ and the fire pit outside to just catch-up and relax. We did use the bus line that is 1/2 block from house to go easy and fun. The kids loved the tub/Jaccuzi and all the space in the bathrooms. WiFi worked great. Thanks for a fantastic place at a reasonable price in a great neighborhood. San Francisco - Seahawk fans!!

    My husband and I have stayed here on three separate occasions and absolutely love this home. We call it our home away from home, and our grandchildren, that live close by, call it "your little white house". The owners have done an outstanding job of providing everything you could need. In summer we enjoy the glorious back garden, fully fenced yard, which is nice for out little dog, Beautifully landscaped and well taken car of. There is every appliance and dish you could need, plus tons of beautiful dishes, glasses and cutlery. We had a family dinner for Christmas Eve and it was like our own home. It is spotlessly clean, and in excellent repair. We could not recommend this more highly! You will not be disappointed! Excellent location with excellent restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance, along with grocery stores, drug stores etc. Love Magnolia Village!

    The house is fantastic. The location is so quiet that you can sleep with the windows open and wake-up to the sounds of the birds. It is so clean and nicely decorated. The garden is well kept and perfect for evening relaxation. Debra provides the basics (to start) such as coffee and the spice rack for the cooks is great. We will stay here again and will recommend to friends and family.

    The photos do not do justice to this very cozy and comfortable home. We wanted a place that could accommodate 4 adults and also had an outdoor area to host a BBQ celebration for our daughter's graduation from UW. This home's modern decor, well-equipped kitchen, and beautifully landscaped backyard with a covered patio, provided the perfect setting. The attention to detail was icing on the cake. Thank you, Deb! We will definitely stay here again.
