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

** 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.

Why The Owner chose Briarcliff

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.

Beautiful, well kept house, fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay, the house wasn’t that big but was very well appointed, well kept and had everything we needed with 3 kids. The owner was great to communicate with, everything was exactly as described. The location was great, community centre and park right across the street, 5 minute walk to the cute little shops and restaurants. And still within a 10 minute drive to everything we wanted to do (Zoo, Pike Place, Science Centre, etc). I would recommend to anyone who wants to visit Seattle but not stay right in the bustle of the city (but still super close!). We will not hesitate to visit again!

Great End to Trip

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet neighborhood house. Just what we needed to chill out at the end of a two week expedition through the Canadian Rockies and British Columbia. All you need in the neighborhood. Just a short drive into Seattle for all the tourist things. If we come back to Seattle this is a definite place to stay.

Owner's Response: That's exactly what we like to hear from our guests! We strive to make Magnolia Memories a comfortable and convenient place to rest while checking out the sights or just needing a place to stay while visiting family and friends! We love return guests, too! :-)

Family Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed the comfort and all of the amenities this home had to offer. The home is located in the perfect neighborhood, where you can feel safe and relaxed. Reserving the home, checking-in and out was made simple. We were able to request an early check-in which was very appreciated. Spoke to the property manager a couple times, Eileen you were very helpful and courteous. We will most certainly consider renting this property again, thank you Debra, Eileen and Magnolia Memories for a great place to stay!

A very positive first experience of VRBO at Magnolia Memories.

  • 5 of 5

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)

Short but nice stay

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We have attempted to provide comfort, very excellent and aesthetic accommodations, including ease of use as a priority at Magnolia Memories. The height of sinks in the Master Bath was an installation oversight on our part for shorter guests! When it comes time to replace those sinks, we will make sure they are more user-friendly for our shorter guests!

Magnificent Magnolia Memories!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the perfect location. We have been here before, but our guests were from Kentucky and wanted to see the sights. So close to everything, yet tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, this cozy, well stocked home affords you the best of both worlds.

Owner's Response: We so appreciate our return guests! Once you stay in the Magnolia neighborhood while touring the sites, you never want to stay elsewhere in Seattle. Thank you for your kind words about Magnolia Memories, and please come again!!!
