Description

The space

We live in a beautiful, three story, three bedroom home in the heart of one of Philly's hottest neighborhoods. Lots of common living space and an awesome back patio to hang out on. We have two bedrooms available to our guests. The smaller room has a small futon that converts into a bed and a small computer desk. The larger room has a queen size bed, vanity table and TV with an Amazon Fire account (also includes HBO and Showtime).

Guest access

You are more than welcome to hang out downstairs in the living room, dining room or patio to work or relax. The kitchen is yours to cook in if you choose, but there are sooo many great restaurants in Philly that I doubt you will want to. You'll have a full bathroom just off of your room and access to wifi (network and password sent when you're confirmed).

Interaction with guests

We are typically here to greet you and offer recommendations while you're visiting Philly. We especially love Fishtown but can also offer insight to some of Philly's most popular sites as well as the best kept secrets. We'll give you our cell phone number during our stay so you can reach out if you have questions or need help. If for any reason we are out of town during your stay, we'll be sure to have a key available to you.

The check in and check out times are usually flexible, but please let me know when you plan to arrive and check-out.

Can't say enough about Tim and Michele's place. Fishtown area has a wide range of restaurants all within walking distance. We were down to visit Temple and it was a 10 minute ride. Michele, is a natural host. Incredibly knowledgeable about Fishtown, Philly in general and places to eat. Accommodations were great. I slept in the queen size bed--very comfortable; my son on a futon. Plenty of room in both rooms and a nice shower. Beyond the great location, Michele really made this trip. And, in a way, I felt her hospitality was similar to a trip to Ireland where people are open, interested in your stay and what you're seeing on your trip. The bottles of wine are a nice touch. After returning from dinner after a rainy Friday night, I was able to sit with Michelle in her living room and share a drink as we waited for my son to return from touring Temple with some friends. Our conversation covered everything from family, restaurants, travel, decorating and her start up company. The people make AirBnb and Michele is really a natural host. I'll definitely return, not just because it was a great stay but to also check in on a great person. Thanks for making our trip even better than we thought!

My friends and I had a great time staying with Michele and Tim. Their house was so cozy, clean and in such a great location! Michele was an amazing host, she made sure we all had everything we needed. Super friendly and made us feel so welcome, we all had coffee in the morning and chatted before heading home. Their pets were friendly and oh so adorable! We would definitely stay again and would recommend their beautiful home to anyone.

Michelle and Tim were accommodating, flexible, welcoming, friendly, and all the qualities one would hope for in a host/ess! It was easy to catch an Uber right from the front the door, or even walk to venues/restaurants/bars. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and very comfortable. The bed sheets were silky soft! Had our dog as well, and he gives the home 4 paws up :)

Tim was there at the house to greet me when I arrived Friday evening. He was super friendly and gave me a brief tour of the house. The place is super cute, very well decorated. Michelle seems to just have very cool style. My girl friend and I chose to stay here bc it was a quick walk to our friends' home. We spent most of our time in Philadelphia out and about, so we weren't in much. However, it was great to have a comfy place to lay my head each night. Tim and Michelle were both very welcoming and just awesome hosts. Definitely, would recommend staying here if you plan to visit Fish town. Fun, hipster area. Everything is conveniently within walking distance. Thanks for the great stay!
