Cozy, comfy, private

  • 5 of 5

We found this location to be easy to access, close to shopping and restaurants, yet nice for relaxing at the end of a busy day. It has nice space, a lovely electric "fireplace" to make it cozy and all the supplies for eating in. Great access to laundry facilities and quick response from the owners to any questions. WiFi, and the outdoor seating were lovely accents to the pretty place. Parking was easy and the steps up were not difficult. Magnolia is a great neighborhood - quiet and family-oriented.

I had the pleasure of being Bill and Rose first tenant. As a travel nurse, I try to find my own housing and this was by far the BEST!! The apartment was very spacious, loved the fact that I had my own entrance. Located close to a supermarket and restaurants within walking distance. Bill and Rose treated me just like family, always checked in to see if I needed anything, making sure I made it home from work safely. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay!!

Excellent! Convenient, Clean, and Great Hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay at Bill and Rose's mother-in-law suite in August of 2016. After a long drive from Alberta, Canada, we were welcomed with treats and a clean apartment with all the amenities (bottles of water, coffee, tea, all appliances, barbecue, cable tv, travel brochures, etc.) we could ask for. The place is spacious and located in a very quiet neighbourhood just a 5 minute walk to bus stops (only 20 minutes to downtown, bus comes every half an hour).

Bill and Rose live upstairs full-time and were very easily reachable if required. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, "move-in ready" home base for Seattle adventures.
