Briarcliff House Rental Photos and Description

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.

** Pike Place Market

** Woodland Park Zoo

** Alki Point

** Seattle Aquarium

** Ivar's Clam Chowder

** Chittenden Locks (Ballard)

** Carl English Botanical Gardens

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.

Great Location, quite and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding so loved the central location. Everything was just as described, very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, much more so than usual rentals. We really appreciated that so many things like coffee, sugar etc. were already stocked.

Wonderful, quaint neighborhood, we hope to return some time when we are not so busy with a wedding.

Nice house, close to bus line

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed for a couple of days while visiting the Seattle area. The house was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. It was only 1 block to the bus line (bus 24, direct to downtown), and across from the public library. It has a car port for parking (I had a Chrysler minivan). The house has two king sized beds that are very comfortable. any more than 4 and there is a a sofa-bed in the living room.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review! Magnolia Memories is situated in a fantastic location and is so very comfortable. The beds must have been so comfortable that you thought they were King sized :) However, they are Queens. We hope you will return if you are in Seattle again!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little place in a nice quiet neighborhood. Very comfortable & we enjoyed the wifi, tv and cabinet of games with our two elementary aged children after a long day of exploring the city. We also enjoyed walking to get get ice cream and explore a local park that over looked the city. Having take out / delivery menus was also quite handy.

a beautiful vacation in seattle!!

  • 1 of 5

My friend and I had a great trip to Seattle. we encountered issues about property after we left. I would highly recommend to renters of this property to take pictures upon leaving the house, and also if you can video. I was wrongly accused of breaking equipment. I barely got home and my credit card was charged for equipment I never touched...

Owner's Response: Debra, the owner of Magnolia Memories, has furnished her newly remodeled home with lush accommodations and equipped it with high quality appliances. Magnolia Memories is her home away from home and she has put much of her heart and soul into making it a lovely place of refuge. She enjoys sharing the property when she cannot be there and is proud of the quality of all that she has provided, not only for herself, but for her welcomed guests who come to stay.

Nice home and great location

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at a Magnolia Memories. It is a really nice home with everything you need. We especially like the covered patio and fenced yard. A public library across the street, a playground 3 blocks away and Starbucks 4 blocks away make it a great location. Also 10 minutes from Ballard and 20 minutes from downtown Seattle. Restaurants we'd recommend include Hot Cakes in Ballard, Paseo in Fremont and Chinook's in Magnolia. We did have a disagreement and lost our deposit concerning the condition of the home when we left and the extra cleaning needed. We would highly recommend you document with pictures when you leave.
