We absolutely loved our stay! Their home was so welcoming, brightly lit, and stylishly decorated. We didn't get a chance to use their outdoor patio because it had just rained but it's such an amazing little space if you get a chance to use it.
Communication was a breeze with them and they even had a little binder with some great tips on places to check out in the neighborhood. We visited two of the places they listed and were very happy with the choices =) The location is a huge bonus since it's just 1/2 a block from all the shops on Fillmore.
We love staying at places in the city with tons of character and where we can feel like locals; homes like this are what keep us coming back to airbnb! We would definitely stay here again!
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ivy Inn for two nights in March and had a wonderful time. Julia & Garrett were both easy to get in touch with and very friendly. The apartment was fantasitc - so much charm and in a great location near shopping, restuarants & entertainment venues. We took cabs a few times and never had a problem hailing one right outside. We highly recommend staying at the Ivy Inn, we couldn't have asked for a better stay.
We had a great time at The Ivy Inn. Julia was very easy to communicate with and the apartment was everything we could have hoped for. The patio is especially cool! The recommendations in the guest book Julia leaves were really useful and we loved the nearby coffee bar and pizzeria she had recommended. We hope to stay at The Ivy Inn again in future!
The Ivy Inn. Fantastic accommodations and reliable hosts. Garrett and Julia were very responsive and flexible with our needs and requests.
The Ivy Inn served as base camp for our first race at the Nike Women's Marathon and proved to comfortable enough to put our pre-race jitters at ease.
The decor was lovely, and is located in a great neighborhood with access to good food and convenient market places. With Union square only 25 minutes away on foot, the Ivy Inn is a great way to experience the city while avoiding stressful sf traffic.
We just returned from an amazing stay at the Ivy Inn! Julia and Garrett's apartment was the perfect home base for exploring San Francisco. Their location can't be beat and the surrounding neighborhood is filled with fun shops, bars and restaurants. The apartment itself is exactly as pictured; maybe even better! Their outdoor space is a quiet oasis and their apartment truly feels like a home. Check-in with Garrett was a breeze and Julia was in touch via text message should we have needed anything. We highly recommend booking a stay here!
Julia and Garrett's place in lower Pacific Heights was fantastic! The apartment is adorable and tastefully decorated (guys seriously, that JFK painting? Rad.) - not to mention having your own private patio? So rare in the city and we enjoyed the sun on Sunday morning prior to heading back to the airport. Julia and Garrett were great to work with - communicative, thoughtful, and helpful. The location couldn't be better to get to all the goodies Fillmore has to offer. My wife, sister and I had a blast and would definitely stay here again. P.S. I had some concern about my sister (website hidden), but she said it was super comfy and worked out great!
Thanks Julia and Garrett!
Thank you so much to Julia and Garrett for a wonderful place!! My girlfriend and I spent the weekend in SF and absolutely loved our stay. The decor is fabulous, the apartment is full of natural lighting and great energy. One of my favorite things about this apartment was its lovely ivy-covered back patio. I have lived in big cities for the last several years and I must say having access to a quiet outdoor space is such an added bonus. It's such a rare thing to have especially in a city like SF. "The Ivy Inn" is in the heart of a fantastic neighborhood, walking distance to some great bars, shops, and restaurants. I highly recommend this place. Consider yourself a lucky person if you get the chance to stay at this beautiful apartment in SF.
I had a wonderful time at Julia and Garret's place! Julia was extremely friendly and easy to get in touch with. She was very helpful, both in meeting up for the keys and also with suggestions of places to eat and see locally. The pictures are very accurate; the little patio area out back is an awesome place to sit and relax after a long day out. I'd certainly stay here again next time I visit this fantastic city. Thanks again!
