The space

We do ask for people to have profiles with real pics and information about themselves and their group -please be clear about your traveling companions names and your relationship. (include information such as work, where you live, what you do for fun, etc).
This being our home, we like to know who is asking to stay, and what they will be doing in the city. (Airbnb is not a social network and your profile is private and not searchable.)
Thank you
Our house is a 3 floor, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, row home in Philadelphia's exciting Fishtown neighborhood.

This is a listing for the smaller of the bedrooms on the second floor that can accommodate 2 people sharing a full sized bed.

You will be sharing the bathroom on the second floor, which includes a bath tub/shower.

You will be sharing the house with us (Sari and Sebastien), and our friendly and sweet cat Ku, and possibly other guests in the larger room.
Check in is after 3pm but we require a scheduled appointment time.

Our schedules are somewhat flexible, and we will work with you on arrival times (Earlier is sometimes possible/depending on previous guests, later is definitely fine.)

Check out is by 12pm, and you do not need to schedule this with us.

You can also leave luggage behind in our living room if you are not leaving Philadelphia right after check out, and pick them up later.

You can also sometimes arrange to pick up keys earlier in the day and drop your luggage in the living room as well, before the rooms become available.

We are LGBT friendly, we welcome everyone and love meeting new people!

Thank you, and see you soon, Sebastien & Sari

Guest access

For rent is a small private bedroom on the second floor.
The bed is a comfy full size mattress, and can accommodate 2 people.

The bedroom is private, and is located on the second floor, next to the bathroom.

The bathroom with a tub & shower is shared between the 2 rooms on the second floor.

You have access to the full kitchen with fridge/stove/microwave/toaster, as well as a washer/dryer for laundry.

Wifi is also provided.

If you are a smoker, we have a small backyard which you can use.

We provide linens, soap, shampoo, towels, hair dryer & ironing board.

Street parking is available on Frankford St. (Our tiny St is permit only but is 5 houses away from the corner).

It is really easy to get here via subway/bus/trolley and if driving we are just blocks from the i95 expressway.

If you're coming via public transportation and you're the type to get lost, we can meet you at the station, or give you detailed personal directions.

Interaction with guests

Depends on how busy we are, we work both from home, and are sometimes offsite at our studio. Sometimes we are here all day and can have brief conversations, but generally if we are at home working we ask that people be considerate of our time.

Other things to note

If you have severe cat allergies this is not the place for you.
The cat is not allowed in the bedrooms so anyone with minor allergies will do fine.

The house has networked security cameras inside and outside aimed at house entryways which are remote monitored and recorded.

Very convenient neighborhood, a lot of restaurants around the corner. Definitely should visit Cake Life bakery, they have unsweet cupcakes and the best croissants, way better than a bakery recommended by Lonely Planet. Sebastien was an amazing person, some places he recommended were hidden gems. Would come again if I'm in Phili next time!

Absolutely loved my stay here. Philadelphia was a really cool town but Fishtown was an absolute gem, plenty of bars,restaurants etc...I could quite easily have not ventured into downtown Philly at all! I stayed in the 'Orange room' a nice space, perfectly sized for a single traveller or two with a super comfy bed and minimal noise pollution. An awesome shower was also a big bonus! Was also awesome to not feel you were in the way when using the Kitchen as I had done in other residences - something I was very grateful of. Best of all was Sebastien's hospitality, really accommodating, willing to make a number of suggestions and ace to have a chat with! I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely book again. Thanks Sebastien!!

I enjoyed stay. I felt safe walking the neighborhood to the train station. Not too far. About a 10 minute depending on stride. There were a few places to eat and hangout. Park close by and doggy park. Uber to city is just minutes. Although I did not get a chance to meet host Sebastien; we communicated. Thank u!!!

Thank you for everything! I had a wonderful stay. Extremely quick response time. Extremely clean. Loved the cat! Very good location (walked to all the local bars and restaurants). Sebastien is a very courteous and considerate host. He made my stay so very welcoming!!! Everything was just right. Didn't excessively communicate, but laid down the rules and responded to every question I had immediately. Everything was tidy and the place was decorated very beautifully. Cozy & welcoming are strong words to describe the place. Highly recommend his hospitality and place!

The Little Orange Room is perfect for one or two people. Walkable to lot of the attractions in the Fishtown area including Kung Fu Necktie, The Barbary, and The Fillmore. Sebastien is a conscientious and informative host. I'd definitely stay there again.
