Our recently remodeled home in the Mission is in a 100 year old Victorian building, combining the best of old-world San Francisco with all the joys of today's Mission District.
Your bright, sunny bedroom has a queen size bed, sofa, rocker, and dresser, with views of a lemon tree and a lush garden out the windows. There's also a single mattress stored under the bed, which you can set up on the floor for a third guest (or a second bed if the two of you prefer to sleep separately.)
The private bath has a 'like rain' showerhead, over a traditional clawfoot tub. Relax in the living room, curl up in the sunporch, or enjoy an evening glass of wine in our secluded garden.
Located between Valencia Street and Dolores Park, you're steps from Foodie Heaven:
Tartine, Delfina, Bi Rite Market, Mission Chinese Food, Locanda, Range, Foreign Cinema, BiRite Creamery, the list goes on, and seems to grow daily, with all of the above within three blocks of our house…
It's the heart of the Mission, close to the Castro, Haight Street, Noe Valley. Super convenient to both BART and MUNI. Easy access to SFO, Union Square, Moscone Center, Market Street, the Ferry Building, AT&T Park, everywhere!
The 101 and 280 freeways are also nearby, but parking in our neighborhood is tough. (There is a parking garage three blocks away, ~$20/day.)
And it's a fantastic neighborhood for bicycling, with dedicated bike lanes on both Valencia Street and 17th Street. We are both avid riders, and love to share the city's cycling secrets. (Trust us: You want to know about the Wiggle before you set off to the park!)
WiFi and in-home laundry available, but parking is not!
(There's a garage a few blocks away, ~$20/day. Street parking is difficult. You may be better off leaving the car home!)

Ivan and Wendy were very welcoming and made the stay really comfortable. The room was clean and quiet with lots of natural light. Location was great. Would be happy to stay with them again
Beautiful apartment, large well-lit room, and a perfect location in the heart of the Mission.
Ivan and Wendy are warm, interesting people and excellent hosts.
Althought I stayed in this house for only 1night ( I checked in late and checked out early), I can say that this place is good and recommendable. The host was so nice. When I had to book a taxi ride after check out, the host helped me to book it directly.
The room I stayed is big and the bed is cozy. If you have a plan to visit San Francisco. I definitely recommend this house!
Ivan & Wendy are fantastic hosts, they made me feel very welcomed instantly. I really enjoyed chatting with them, they’re both very easy going and they’ve traveled pretty much everywhere! Their dog Milo is uber cute and I loved his little Chihuahua face :)
Ivan & Wendy’s place is my dream home, a large house beautifully decorated and fully equipped with every amenity you may be need during your stay. The room itself and the private bathroom were gorgeous and very comfortable for my 2 week stay. The area is fantastic, with great food & nightlife around the corner. Ivan & Wendy also recommended some awesome places to hang out in the neighbourhood and made my stay extra special.
Ivan knows how to host! Completely gracious, thoughtful, great conversationalist, and fantastic home. Ivan was able to accomodate me at the last minute for which I was really happy for. Gave stellar, organized directions on how to reach his home from SFO. The spot is located in the Mission and only a couple blocks away from Dolores Park where I had an awesome Sunday afternoon. Great restaurants, shops, coffee, loved it. It was my first time back in the city in 5 years and I loved it! Will be making a return visit soon.
Wendy and Ivan are lovely and welcoming. A great few days at their home.
My friend and I stayed with Ivan and Wendy for two weeks while doing an externship in SF. As you can tell from the pictures, their home is beautifully renovated and very comfortable. The house is in a great location -- lots of great restaurants and bars in the area, as well as easy access to public transit. We really enjoyed chatting with Ivan and Wendy and having their adorable dog Milo around. Two weeks is a long time to stay in someone's home, but we felt very welcome. They were kind enough to accommodate us in the kitchen by cooking dinner before we got home from work, so we had plenty of space to cook and they usually gave us the run of the living room by 8 or 9. All in all a wonderful place to stay in SF!
What a wonderful rental! Wendy & Ivan’s home is beautiful! AND it was very quiet and very clean. I loved the claw foot bath tub. We stayed for about a week, loved the area and all it had to offer--Tartine’s Bakery is a must!! There were coffee shops, and artsy shops for picking up gifts. The BART is close by and so convenient to head downtown. The weather was marvelous too; unseasonably warm for the end of December. This was one of our best trips to San Francisco. Wendy and Ivan, also Kate and Fernando, were very helpful and hospitable hosts. We would return in a heartbeat. Having never booked through Airbnb, we were pleasantly surprised how easy it was to book on-line through the site, how good the communication was with our hosts, and just in general, how well it all came together.

I really recommend staying with Ivan and Wendy! The house is in a perfect location, the room is bright, spacious and clean. The bathroom is excellent. What makes it even better is that they're super nice and friendly. I won't look anywhere next time I'm in SF.
It seems like every time i stay in an AirBnB property it just gets better and better.
I was so impressed and grateful to spend time in such an amazing home. I only got to meet Ivan, Wendy & Milo at the start for a quick tour and key handover, but it was obvious they are lovely, trusting and accommodating people. They were especially gracious letting me keep my suitcase there after morning checkout until i came to collect it later in the afternoon.
This place is in such a wonderful and accessible location - literally right on the doorstep to one of San Francisco's 'happening' areas. It is full of wonderful natural light, open spaces and tasteful furnishings.
I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks guys.
