The PERFECT apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had possibly our best vacation ever here! The apartment was perfect, everything is updated and clean. The gas fireplace in the living room turns on with the flick of a switch! The bedding was hands down the best we've ever had, sheets were very soft (650 thread count!), and the bed/pillows were comfy as could be. Very quiet too! Everything you could possibly want was available and kept to the highest standards. The owners were extremely nice and accommodating, and the care they take in their home is very apparent! The village area is like a block away with some great restaurants! You can't find a better apartment in all of Magnolia. We will be coming back to stay again soon!

Perfect in every detail!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the nicest VRBO apartment we've ever stayed in! The location within easy walking distance of the village of Magnolia is perfect, not to mention it's only a block or so to the trail along the bluff and spectacular views of the Oympics. Everything in the apartment is top notch quality. The attention to details shows in every room. The space is very well insulated. So we didn't hear noise from the home above.

Ricco and Leo, our hosts' dogs, announced every arrival and departure with wagging tails and a few barks. Very sweet dogs and we enjoyed getting to know them. They were a wonderful reflection of our hosts, Scott and Sandy, who were so nice and thoughtful. Their efforts to provide a comfortable, welcoming, home away from home have succeeded!

Beautiful home in a great neighborhood! We enjoyed walking to Magnolia shops and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully furnished, comfortable, quiet, spotlessly clean place for us to rest in between hiking and exploring Seattle. We did not cook, but the kitchen was well equipped, with tons of staples on hand. The owners/hosts were great and we would book with them again anytime!

The perfect space for our needs. Great owners with a well appointed apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Scott and Sandy are the most pleasant people that we could rent from. They have set this apartment up beautifully with everything a person could want and need during their stay. The snack box was greatly appreciated. The bathroom is nicely stocked with soap and hair care products, should one forget to bring their own. The towels are a nice weight and don't feel cheap. In the kitchen, every utensil imaginable is available and anyone wanting to cook here would have no issues.

The living room is quiet and comfy with a gas fireplace and a nice size television, with Netflix too! Lastly, the bedroom is very comfortable with a great bed and nice sheets that did not feel cheap either. There is also a tv in that room too, although I did not use it.

The icing on the cake is (being a two dog owner myself) seeing and interacting with the owner's two dogs, Ricco and Leo. Getting to see the two dogs and pet them was a nice addition, while never being obtrusive or a nuisance.

I would never hesitate to stay at this apartment again and actually look forward to my next visit.

Scott and Sandy could not have fixed this place up any better. Kudos to you both!!!
