Great place, not so great neighbors|Recommended: YesI love the location and all of the staff here. However some of the residents are selfish, loud, and rude. As an example, one lady will take up every single washing machine at once and tell anyone who wants to do theirs that they have to wait until hers are all done, several hours from now before she has even put her clothes in the washer to begin with . If my neighbors had more common courtesy and respect for others, this place would be ideal.

Meh.|Recommended: NoIts your standard apartment.
Great location, quiet clean. Responsive management and maintainance, Friendly|Recommended: YesThe Overlook is a complex nested on the east side Magnolia near the top of the ridge. The square footage of our unit is comparable to small one bedroom houses in Ballard with an amazing view north to Ballard all the way to Mt Rainier. Street parking is not easy and a parking stall is a near must. The grounds are well kept and the management listens to presented issues and responds relatively quickly depending what needs to be done. Rent increases of 5 can be expected if you do sign a lease renewal and if you don't, one can expect more. As a long term rental, I would suggest being less aggressive rent increases to promote an established residency which builds community and increases overall safety in terms of familiarity and consistency.
We Love It |Recommended: YesWe lived in the Overlook for 5 years and only moved because of a job out of state. The people working in the office and the maintenance staff are all really great people. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors friendly. We will miss living here
Beautiful Apartments Outstanding Customer Service |Recommended: YesMy entire experience with Overlook at Magnolia has been outstanding from the initial showing of the apartment to move in the staff at Overlook is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. My apartment is beautiful, spacious, has gorgeous views, is well kept and I don't hear my neighbors at all. I moved from a 5 bedroom house in the Midwest, I was nervous about moving to an apartment I am very happy with my decision to move to Overlook. I moved to Seattle by myself and I travel a lot for work so having the staff at Overlook to help with deliveries, technicians etc has been incredibly helpful. All of the staff at Overlook is AWESOME , they treat you like family. I would highly recommend Overlook at Magnolia.
Overall Experience|Recommended: NoStaff working in the leasing office is very supportive and cooperative. Maintenance is poor. Slow response. Old equipment's in the kitchen. Which make noise. Gym is not maintained. Treadmill button are scratched and disappeared from more than a year but no one thought to fix them. Gym roof is leaking from more than 6 months and a bucket is placed to collect the water. No one thought to fix the roof. Washer and dryers are always dirty with pet hairs. Main entrance lock was not working properly and it took more than a year to get replaced. People keys were blamed which worked fine on door but not on another door.
It'll Do aka good short term spot |Recommended: YesPros recently new staff is super accommodating and competent before, I've had nice but incompetent service , there is a gym and sauna, office collect packages for you, every place has a patio, every patio level 2 and up has an amazing view, big living room space, laundry units, dog poo bag dispenser outside, good outside upkeep, compost and recycle available. Cons Removed hot tub and replaced it with a concrete patio, gym is small, bathrooms easily get moldy, you can hear the upstairs people easily walking making love music showers draws opening , elevators are almost too small to move in furniture, kitchens need updates, on the top of a giant hill taking bus -- walking sucks , not enough outside bins for compost and recycling.
Well kept, friendly staff|Recommended: YesThe staff is extremely helpful and the place is always in tip top shape. It is a hoy to make my home here.
Live here|Recommended: YesOverall a good place to live. The office staff is wonderful, The views are lovely, the apartment is nothing spectacular, but it was clean and pretty spacious for the price. You are also in the middle of everything, and can hop to downtown in 10 minutes, Ballard in 5 and you live near Discovery park which is wonderful

We value your choice to make your home at Overlook at Magnolia. Take good care, Kristie - Weinder Customer Service
Overlook has been a great experience so far |Recommended: YesI love the professionalism of the staff, the community is kind of neighborly and maintenance requests always get handled in a timely fashion Location and taking the bus to work downtown couldn't be easier even though parking our one car on the street is always a bit of an adventure. It's an older community 70's or 80's so the walls can be a bit thin at times and some fixtures can definitely use an update but nothing that has been a detriment to our experience. Overall I've been really happy with the quality of my stay
Hello Cady, I appreciate hearing your kind words regarding the Overlook at Magnolia team and community, I'll make sure they hear about it! Thank you as well for choosing a Weidner community to make your home. Kind regards, Kristie - Weidner Customer Serivce
Nice quiet neighborhood|Recommended: YesGreat place to live. Very quiet neighborhood. Squeeky floors and ceilings though. But TV and voice noise is almost non existent. Nicely remodeled and great upkeep.
Large, private fabulous view. I really enjoy living here. |Recommended: YesI love my apartment. I have the best view of Fisherman's terminal and the Ballard Bridge. It's a large, well laid out 1 bedroom apartment. I have a huge balcony, with all the privacy I can ask for. Though it's an older building, this just adds to the charm. The staff is super friendly and goes above and beyond always. They keep the building and the property super clean.
Dear Carolyn, thanks for the great review; we will share it with the on site team and their managers as well!
Great apartment and community|Recommended: YesLoved living in Overlook - great value for our apartment given how nice the view was. Maintenance was always prompt and fixed things. Only complaint I have is shutting down the hot tub - I felt like I was paying for that in my rent but didn't get to use it for a long period of time.
