Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Our group included 4 adults ages 80-18. We stayed 2 nights prior to our cruise. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet. The home was very cute, clean and was represented exactly as advertised! Perfect for our needs! Tina was so easy to work with. Close to some local restaurants, drugstore and grocery. Cruise terminal pier 91 was maybe 10 minutes away. Discovery Park also maybe 10 minutes away. We loved staying here and would not hesitate to stay again.

Great home away from home in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a lovely area of Seattle. The area is like a small town. It is close to public transit that is a quick trip downtown. There is a play ground, Star Bucks, coffee shop, grocery, and other restaurants in walking distance. Home is furnished with all you need for a stay. Kitchen has all needs to cook. Would stay there again in a heart beat.

Nice home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very cute and well-stocked home in West Seattle. Owners were very attentive and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed on arrival. The neighborhood is very quaint and quiet with shops and restaurants a few blocks away. We were only able to stay for 1 night, but would love to come back and stay longer.

Owner's Response: Owen and his family were good guests and left the house nice and clean. I'm glad they felt it was a good place to stay, and found it spacious and comfortable. I'm a little confused with the 4 star review, though.

• Located on a peninsula west of Queen Anne Hill‚ south of the Ballard neighborhood‚ and only minutes from downtown Seattle‚ Magnolia is a special place which retains its friendly, small town feel. It is accessible by three bridges or a lovely walk across the Chittenden Locks from Ballard.

• A short distance from the University of Washington (5 miles), Safeco field and Century Link field (7 miles), cruise line terminals (3-4 miles) and Seattle Center (4 miles). Once you arrive at the Seattle Center the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Experience Music Project, the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum along with theaters, restaurants, entertainment, and art exhibits are within walking distance!

• Our house is half a mile from Discovery Park, the largest city park in Seattle. Situated on Magnolia Bluff overlooking Puget sound, the park offers spectacular views of both the Cascade and the Olympic mountain ranges. There are two miles of protected tidal beaches as well as trails, open meadowlands, dramatic sea cliffs, forest groves, active sand dunes, thickets and streams. Catch the West Point Lighthouse at sunset!

• The neighborhood village is within walking distance with great restaurants, pubs, coffee, bakeries, a lovely bookstore, services and specialty shops. Trader Joe's is just over the bridge. Nearby Fisherman’s Terminal is a 100-year-old working marina on salmon bay.

• Magnolia offers wonderful parks and playgrounds. The view of downtown Seattle from Ella Bailey park can’t be rivaled! The delightful Woodland Park Zoo is 3.6 miles away.
