Spacious Living and Pet Friendlysubmitted by Jessica T. - |Recommended: YesOur apartment space is very spacious, plenty of parking, pet friendly, quiet and great views. My only complaint is high utilities because they are shared per building-- like obnoxiously high utilities that raise your rent by 100 month. Watch out for this. The grounds do have a bit of dog poop and gardens should be done better to make the outside more appealing. We are a couple here who make good money but the rent is a bit much with utilities. Also another negative is the gym, it's VERY hot in there from all the skylights and the machines are all old, and it's extremely small.
response from property -Hi Jessica, thank you for your feedback and giving us the opportunity to improve. It never ceases to amaze me that people with dogs don't take the responsibility to clean up after them. I am glad that our team checks for this daily. If you ever see who is doing this please let the office know so they can put an end to it. I will be sure to pass this on to the team. Take care, Wendee - Customer Service
Charges for garage and parking spacesubmitted by Shanikka J. - |Recommended: NoMy rent is $1665, my parking is $95 monthly, I ve paid $1769 for rent and parking for the past two months, I keep getting emails and phone calls from the office stating I have a balance due on rent? I should have a credit. I was told washers and dryers were available and given an apartment with washer and dryer hook-ups, but told by maintenance I could not use it? false advertisement and false overage charges is not my ideal of community. I am a former Property Manager.

My apologies on any confusion regarding the payments and I am happy to hear that there has been contact with the site and that all has been worked out.

Awesome apartment, great service, a bit expensivesubmitted by Anne B. - |Recommended: YesI love it. I wish the rent didn't go up so much every year.
The staff are friendly, attentive and efficent; the web-portal works well. submitted by Zachary H. - |Recommended: YesThe staff is excellent. The units are a bit dated but are well maintained. The rent is appropriate. Its a good place to live.
Eh.submitted by Ben O. - |Recommended: YesIt's okay.
Comfortable and convenient, but lacks some essentials. submitted by Mercedes P. - |Recommended: YesIt's nice to have home close to work, the layout of my apartment is nice and I love that I have a balcony. The fitness area is nice, but small, and the hot tub is a great addition. Parking is a nightmare, and laundry is not convenient. I feel that the apartment is lightly overpriced for what you get. It would be great to have parking included and more laundry rooms.
Overlooking the Seattle lights is a Magnolia moment worth livingsubmitted by Lisa M. - |Recommended: YesPeaceful, quiet, and serenity living!
Sub Parsubmitted by Lena M. - |Recommended: NoI would tell them about the stupid rule that someone has to pay by check if after 3pm on the 3rd day of the month. It clearly documents the submission and as long as it is before you walk in the door, which is the same wiggle room you allow for checks. Especially when it is sometimes a week or more before my check is actually deposited. Why would some place have electric payment when they are not giving their tenants the benefit of it. I also submitted a request on maintenance. It took over a month with not one follow through phone call or email to update me on status. Again, we pay $50 last fee if we pay online after 3pm on the 3rd which is the due date (which I could probably take you fair housing), but you can take over a month to fix an issue with my maintenance request. I could probably go on, but it is useless as I have given the same feedback to the front desk with no changes and the last time I used this web based communication it took over a month with several verbal request before anything got done. You pain the place and work on the visual, but this place is still a joke and know by most as such.
Disappointed rent is increasing, but love past year's improvements submitted by Russell A. - |Recommended: YesOverlook at Magnolia are great apartments located in a pretty safe neighborhood, close to several parks and bus routes to downtown Seattle. The apartments themselves are fairly comfortable, with well-kept appliances and the management has made a lot of substantial improvements to the buildings in the past year: new carpet, paint jobs, signage, community room, gym equipment, etc. My only complaint is that the rent is raising accordingly and is soon going to make it hard to continue living here. Still, these are some of the best dog-friendly apartments in Seattle.
Living at the Overlook is a pleasure!submitted by Shelly E. - |Recommended: YesWe appreciate the excellent customer service from the leasing office, the amazing view of Mt. Rainier from our balcony, and the convenient location in Magnolia.

It's a wonderful place to call home.submitted by Tosin A. - |Recommended: YesI really like living in this community.
Pretty decent apartments, and the staff isn't too bad.submitted by Laresia B. - |Recommended: YesWell, there are students in the hot tub pretty late at night. That's my only complaint. If they were to enforce the hot tube rules, then I would be a happier renter. Everyone is pretty friendly, and the apartments are very safe. My neighbors are sweet, caring, and I trust them.
