Our colorful, comfy and safe apartment is a great place to call home between your Philly adventures. It sleeps four and is perfectly located to explore Old City, Chinatown, Rittenhouse, Reading Terminal and the Italian Market by foot, subway, taxi or bicycle.

The space

This beautiful apartment in the heart of historic Old City promises to deliver a Philly experience full of culture, history, food and fun. The space has a loft feel with awesome exposed brick walls and tons of natural light. Comfortably accommodating four, the apartment provides a safe place to rejuvenate and refresh between your local adventures. Noise: We live on a city block full of bars and restaurants. We love the accessibility this allows and the energy of the area, but it does mean there is music, people's voices, cars, etc. This apartment is on the back half of the building with no road behind so the street noise is blocked, but there is club music typically Wednesday, Friday and Saturday that can be heard from the space next door until 2am. If you plan to go to sleep earlier than the club closing time on these nights, our apartment is probably not a good fit for you. The rest of the week is quiet as the club is not open.

Guest access

The entire apartment is yours for the time of your stay. Coffee and tea are stocked to jump start your mornings and the TV is set up with Netflix and Pandora.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to provide tips and recommendations, answer any questions and are always available by cell.

We were airbnb hosts in Mexico City, are airbnb travelers and love the experience. Check out our profile and reviews.

Other things to note

Stairs | The apartment is on the top floor of the building with two flights of stairs to arrive at the entrance. There is no elevator.

This space is perfect for a longer visit. Marco and Kristin make check-in easy. Their space is well decorated, clean, and is just blocks from a lot of must-sees in Philly. As they mention, it can be noisy hearing people come in and out of the building and the club next door does play music through the night. But, that didn't bother us at all. One thing that would be good know is that the parking is expense in the parking garage around the corner. It ended up being approximately $35 a night, which I think is pretty steep. (Obviously not in the host's control, but something to prepare for.) Overall, it's a comfortable space that will make your vacation/visit more enjoyable!

Marco & Kristin were fantastic hosts. The apartment was a great value and was even more spacious than the pictures show. Communication was fantastic and check-in/check-out was a breeze. Would definitely stay again at this property and any other property that feature Marco & Kristin as hosts!

Apartment is larger and even better than the pictures. Location is perfect for access to sightseeing activities. Music from the club next door will keep you up until 2am. Wasn't an issue for us since we were usually out late anyways, but it's good to know if that's not what you're looking for. All in all, it was a fabulous place for our weekend trip.

avid travelers | dog lovers | food fanatics | entrepreneurs

We are a young married couple in our thirties. We've traveled to 39 countries between the two of us, 25 of them together and counting. We typically travel as backpackers and while we love to be comfortable, will enthusiastically "rough it" in the quest for a unique adventure. We have two favorite aspects of travel - meeting/learning about people and trying/enjoying as much food we can physically handle.

We met and married in Atlanta, GA, backpacked for a bit as newlyweds, lived in Mexico City for a few years and are now settled in Philadelphia with our two mini dachshunds, Chicha and Lucho. Marco grew up in Mexico City and Kristin just outside of Philly. We make our living as entrepreneurs and make our life about the experiences we have/create every day. We're big believers that 'the best is yet to come' and this drives us to try new things, take risks and explore in all aspects of our life.

We believe that the best thing in the world is to be exposed to new people, places and things. When you can connect with a local the experience is so much better. We love to share our favorite bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, food spots, markets, etc. that are tucked around the city, plus the must see cultural stops and the best ways to get around the city. Philadelphia is a beautiful place to visit and we love for people to get the most out of their time here.

Travelers who stay with us can expect a clean, comfortable and safe space to come home to and two hosts who will help make your time in Philly special. We work a lot, but are always available for questions and conversation over a strong cup of coffee.
