In-city gardeny retreat -- hens pecking outside your kitchen window, downtown just minutes away!
Let us offer you the best of in-city and residential neighborhoods. You'll be across the street from a great little park, and just up the hill from a walkable storefront neighborhood with boutiques, bakeries, restaurants, and a day spa. Some of the best restaurants in Seattle are within a five-minute walk...Crush, Kingfish, Harvest Vine, Cafe Flora...When you've eaten your fill, hit the YMCA just 5 blocks over, where a day membership gets you access to all of their equipment, yoga classes, and swimming pool. Those of you who like consistency with your travel will find a Starbucks and a Safeway three blocks away :-)
Get downtown easily -- 7 minutes by car, 12 by bus, or 30 on your feet. Or stay home -- chill in the fenced back yard or pick raspberries in the front (they ripen in July)
The unit has a queen bed (extra firm with built-in pillow top) with box spring. In addition, a twin-size futon (fold-out) can accommodate a third person.
If you are traveling with children, Ivy is CPR certified, has completed a babysitting class at Children's Hospital, and can provide references. She has a great time with the little ones!
We can't wait to help you love your time in Seattle!

If you love home away from home you will appreciate this quiet garden level studio apartment nestled in one of Seattle's beautiful neighborhoods. Just a few blocks from parks, grocery stores and hip places to eat and shop at. The host was warm, helpful and the accommodations clean and cheerful. We hope to stay their again in the future.
After you stay in a number of airbnb homes, you realize that some people do it for the money, and others do it because they have the resources to rent out their space and they want others to experience the home that they love. Margot and Ivy's studio is made for visitors, and you can tell they really love to share their home with guests. They leave recommendations and maps, and you can really tell they love where they live. Margot went out of her way to show my husband and me around, but allowed us to keep to ourselves and explore Seattle on our own. Quiet location (with the occasional exception of the chickens) and conveniently located.
The apartment was clean, the bed comfy, and everything worked. It's also in a great location: a nice quiet neighborhood, yet close to everything we wanted to see. Loved the chickens. Margot and Ivy also gave us very detailed directions and information, and responded immediately when I had a question. Great experience!
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Margot and Ivy's studio apartment. Leading up to our arrival, Margot was helpful and quick to respond to emails and texts. We arrived to beautiful fresh cut flowers from the garden, eggs from the hens, and a delicious bowl of trail mix. The location was perfect for walking to Cap Hill and provided easy access by car or public transportation to other nearby neighborhoods.
Margot & Ivy had a great place for us to stay, we never ran into them, but the place was great. The chickens were fun to feed. The location was close to downtown and we were able to drive back and forth through out the day to relax in the room.
The reservation was canceled 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Margot was a great host! Even provided bike helmets to us because we forgot ours. :) We had a beautiful time in Seattle.
As first time Airbnb users, my boyfriend & I loved this experience! Great location that was a short drive to all the Seattle sights. Enjoyed the charm of the homegrown fruits & veggies surrounding the home and the chickens outside. Plenty of street parking for our rental. Communication with Margot & Ivy was great and they were quick to solve a tiny issue we had with ants (some found their way inside because the warm weather). The studio was neat, clean, and had all that we needed. We would definitely recommend this studio or any place that Margot & Ivy might list!
Lovely space! Great area not too far from downtown. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the city and we thought it was so charming! Kitchen, bathroom, bed, and little dining area. We didn't spend too much time in Seattle, so we only had two nights with Margot & Ivy but this space was perfect! :)
We enjoyed staying in this studio apartment, it was close to everything we wanted to see and we never had problems navigating our way to or from the neighborhood. The apartment was clean and comfortable, much larger than a hotel and had more of a homely feel. I would definitely stay here again.
