Good place to live and reasonable pricesubmitted by Miguel S. - |Recommended: YesI love Magnolia and I like my apartment. It is big, comfortable and although the construction is old and light, the monthly rent is reasonable. I like the Web Portal and the Maintenance system. I only wish the parking garage was internally connected with the elevators
Its a cozy communitysubmitted by Stephen H. - |Recommended: YesI'd tell them to move here
Very nice.submitted by Debra S. - |Recommended: YesIt's very nice. I would put more lighting by the dog walks and on the way to the gym. I would also put shopping carts in each building on the first floor so tenants don't have to make numerous trips. Would help out so much.
Like living here, gym is something left to be desiredsubmitted by Tracy S. - |Recommended: YesLet it be known that I really enjoy living here and the staff are wonderful. My only qualm is the state of the gym. The treadmills are the only piece of cardio equipment I can get a good workout on. The ellipticals and stationary bikes are pretty run down and don't feel good to use. I would love to see them replaced with more recent models, though I understand those things aren't cheap
Very well keptsubmitted by Christopher E. - |Recommended: YesGreat Staff
Great submitted by Samuel D. - |Recommended: YesIt is a very affordable, and pleasant area. Nice sized apartments at great price.
Fun Environmentsubmitted by Virginia M. - |Recommended: YesI enjoy living here, but most of all, THE STAFF IS AMAZBALLLZZZZ. I can't put a bigger emphasis on how great and friendly the staff is. I love love love love them, and its hard not to Im a college student and this is an awesome apartment for my roommates and I It's a lot bigger than we anticipated it would be Overall its GREAT. I ranked parking and construction at a 4 not because its not amazing BUTTT because after 5 finding parking on the street can be a bit hectic but you will find spot guaranteed. I have a spot which makes things so easy for myself, so that also is an option As far as construction this is obvi not a brand new building so there are things that are just a bit old. My favorite aspect of our apartment is the FIREPLACE Its so cute and trendy. I would highly advise this apartment to dog lovers and everyone else
Very Pleasantsubmitted by Katherine H. - |Recommended: YesI have enjoyed living here so far, and it's only been just about a month I especially like the staff in the leasing office, Heather and everyone else there are so helpful and are always great at responding to your needs. I would recommend this community if you really enjoy dogs, friendly neighbors, quietness, great staff, and more
We love it here submitted by Vernon B. - |Recommended: YesThe Overlook is so friendly Especially the assistant community director Keirsten She is always in the office helping our neighbors and seems like she is always going out of her way to get to know the residents The Overlook is also super dog friendly Plenty of spots to take your pup and its right down the street from an off leash dog park. We love the Overlook so much that we moved from the first floor to the 5th floor for the awesome views Can't beat the price for a view like these.

Fantastic place to live I'd recommend to anyone submitted by Angela V. - |Recommended: YesStaff are responsive and helpful and maintenance is done more quickly than I have ever experienced. Most of the neighbors are friendly and obliging and once you shut your door you truly don't hear anything. Overlook is conveniently located to two bus routes and it is easy to get to ballard, freemont, and belltown I love living here

Its not badsubmitted by Alma K. - |Recommended: YesPleasant and quiet part of town. Nice people.
response from property -Hi Alma, so glad to hear you love your community, we think they're pretty terrific too! I'll be sure they get a copy of your review and your kind words for them. Thanks! Best, Weidner Customer Service
Good value for price and location submitted by Kailey G. - |Recommended: YesProperty is kept nice looking and is pet friendly with a couple locations spread out over the grounds that have poop bags and trashcans. Parking can be kind of spotty depending on the day and the time, its nice to have a designated parking spot but the price for the spot is a little expensive. The complex itself is pretty well maintained but definitely older and has its issues. The units are big which is nice but definitely outdated. Noise between units is pretty minimal but noise in the complex can get a little loud if you have your windows open and we've had some issues with smelling cigarette smoke when people are smoking on their balconies and it comes in through open windows and doors.

Well maintained apartments, with great staff, views and pet communitysubmitted by Travis B. - |Recommended: YesI like living here. It's an older but well-maintained complex, and that is part of its era appeal apartment layouts are similar, but each has something different. I love the views, and it also has a great community of pet owners and their animals.
