About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

“Awesome” ~ “Breathtaking” ~ are just a couple of words which will come to mind when you enter Magnolia Memories. From the overstuffed couch and electric fireplace that beckons you to snuggle down for awhile, to the glorious landscaping inspiring you to unwind in nature, Magnolia Memories warms and heals the spirit as well as the body.

This completely remodeled 2BR, 2BA single-family home offers so many amenities: a magnificent Master Suite (with a romantic electric fireplace), fully equipped kitchen, cozy dining room overlooking a luxurious patio and backyard adding to the overall living space. There are 2 sumptuous queen-size beds and a queen-sized sleeper sofa, all cozily and lavishly presented with the finest of linens and warmest of comforters. The Master Bath offers double sinks, shower, and a separate Jacuzzi tub. The additional bathroom offers a shower/jetted tub combo. Both bathrooms offer plush towels for your bathing pleasure. Both bedrooms include mounted televisions with DVD players. The kitchen is done in rich woods with granite counter tops and gleaming stainless-steel appliances.

WiFi is provided for your convenience.

From the dining area, you go through beautiful French-doors and into the fully-fenced, private, lighted backyard. A gazebo covers the patio table and chairs, (affording outside delights even in the rain!). Also included is a briquette-style BBQ grill, outdoor fireplace, and lushly-detailed, newly-landscaped backyard with garden fountains.

Warm and inviting, calm and soothing ~ this home will meet, then exceed your expectations above and beyond the rest!

Ranked as the second largest neighborhood by area in Seattle, Washington, Magnolia flourishes outside the main part of the city bustle, giving it a “home town” feeling, while being in close enough proximity to give families a chance to experience the uniqueness of downtown Magnolia and the grandness of downtown Seattle. Within the Magnolia area, West Magnolia Park is located just a block from the house, affording children a chance to play and interact within the neighborhood. The brand-new Magnolia Library is also within the same walking distance.

Other Points of interest:

** 7 minutes from Seattle Center/Space Needle

** 5 blocks from downtown Magnolia

** 1 block from West Magnolia Park ~ where you will find the city’s public pool, tennis courts,

playgrounds, and the famous Magnolia Farmer’s Market (open every Saturday from

mid-May through mid-October)

** 5 minutes from Discovery Park ~ offering 534 acres and as Seattle’s largest park,

is proud to be home to foxes, eagles, falcons, herons, and beavers. Views of Puget

Sound and the Olympic Mountains flourish along the 7 miles of trails provided.

** Woodland Park Zoo

** Alki Point

Why The Owner chose Seattle

I chose to purchase this home from my father's estate to use as a second home for myself, as I live and work in Central Washington and so enjoy getting away to enjoy the many delights of Seattle. When I am not there, I like to make it available for guests to enjoy the comforts of home during their stay in Seattle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is so wonderful - peaceful, quiet, beautiful, a joy to stay here. Better than any 5 star - 5 diamond hotel I have ever stayed in. On future trips to visit my son here I will definitely try to stay here. Will be recommending to all my friends and family.

The Magnificance of Magnolia Memories

  • 5 of 5

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.

We'll keep coming back!

This is our 2nd stay at Magnolia Memories and hope it stays a vacation rental forever. The location is absolutely perfect for us. Close to the library, Catholic Church, Whole Foods, and Saturday Farmers Market. It's relatively close to downtown Seattle but it feels a world away when you're here. So quiet and peaceful. And it's genuinely dog friendly. Thanks and we hope to visit again soon.

Very nice! Clean, inviting, and in a great neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The house is well set up, 2 queen bedrooms with full bathrooms so 2 couples or in our case, parents and a 3 year old are very comfortable. Great amenities and a beautiful back yard plus it's easy walking distance to the shops & park in Magnolia. Overall very nice, I'd recommend it for sure.

Exactly What We Were Looking For

  • 5 of 5

We had a last minute visit to Seattle and found this wonderful home. We have family living in Magnolia and this couldn't have been a more perfect location. The owner was quick to respond and we booked it. The house is great. It's quaint, clean, organized and has everything you need. Our two boys had fun exploring the backyard and we walked into town every morning for breakfast at Starbucks. Easy. A fun park and playground is down the road as well. We will absolutely book it again in the future.
