About this listing
Sunny second floor bedroom with double bed and shared full bathroom just down the hall. Bathroom is shared with us and includes hairdryer, basic toiletries and plenty of towels. The bedroom also has a dresser and closet for longer stay guests. The room has two large windows facing a secondary street.
Our home is a three bedroom rowhouse in the Northern Liberties neighborhood. The location is a short walk to Northern Liberties & Fishtown restaurants and shopping.
Public transportation (subway/el) is approximately 10 minutes' walk and bus service to/from center city is at the end of the block. Street parking is relatively easy to find on nearby streets.
Guests have use of wifi, laundry, large kitchen, living room with basic cable, dvd & netflix and backyard patio and garden. We share our home with two small - medium, well-behaved dogs.
We work full-time so would ask for flexibility on check-in. Our preference is to meet guests at the house when possible, but are somewhat tied to work schedules. We have a 6p check-in on the listing, but are happy to work with guests' schedules as best we can.
Any other questions, please feel free to ask!

Kim and Frank were lovely hosts. They were waiting for us upon arrival, and were extremely welcoming and helpful. The room had every amenity we could need, more than some hotel rooms we have stayed at! The bed was extremely comfortable, and we had lots of privacy.
Both Kim and Frank were willing to help us plan our days, and were very knowledgeable of restaurants in the Northern Liberties, as well as downtown.
The neighbourhood was very cool, great bars, restaurants, and cafés. Their dogs Saki and Bean were very friendly and sweet as well.
If you are heading to Philly, I highly recommend you stay with Kim and Frank!
Kim & Frank were great! Very laid back and friendly. They gave us an upgrade to the Private Room w/ EnSuite Bath at no extra charge. And by the way, it was spotless -- I wish my house was that clean! But seriously, their home is lovely and we felt very welcome. We had leftovers from a meal at Silk City, and they made room in the fridge and helped me heat it up the next day. I especially loved Kim's garden -- she has really made good use of their small back yard. Their two pooches were very sweet, also.
Kim and Frank are very friendly and accommodating! Their neighborhood, Northern Liberties, is like the Williamsburg of Philly, with tons of cool coffee shops and restaurants--and Kim and Frank directed us several of their favorites, which were just blocks away.
Their home was just right, and decorated with Frank's photography. Comfy bed, nice bathroom, and snacks/water in the room.
Kim and Frank have a beautiful home in the Northern Liberties/Fishtown neighborhood. The neighborhood has a cool, Brooklyn-like vibe with great coffee shops, restaurants, parks and art galleries. It's very easy to get from their home to Center City and other great sites by subway, bus, bike or walking.
Kim and Frank were so welcoming and accommodating to our late arrival and late departure. They gave us some great tips for our trip and the guest room in their home was very comfortable and clean.
Staying at this Airbnb was an absolute pleasure. Kim & Frank were communicative before we arrived, answering our questions about the neighborhood and home. Kim was away for the weekend, so Frank stayed home to meet us when we arrived Friday night. The apartment was clean, comfortable and charming -- and we loved the two dogs. Frank told us about a few cool bars, restaurants and coffee shops in the neighborhood, which we checked out and enjoyed during our stay. We didn't have any problems with the Airbnb during the weekend; we wouldn't change a thing about it. We'd definitely stay again next time we're in Philadelphia.
Kim was very friendly and made us feel very welcome into her lovely home.
The description was accurate, the room was comfortable, and the house was very clean. We had all we needed for our stay.
The neighborhood was quiet but very close to the action in Northern Liberties. Many attractions are easily walkable, and Kim was available to make suggestions on things to do/ see in the area.
Kim and Frank are terrific hosts. I had a wonderful stay at their place in Philly. The are always willing to help me solve problems and give me lots of suggestions about Philly. They even planned a customized one-day Philly trip for me. I love this place and I would love to recommend everyone to stay at their place when visiting Philly. (Two adorable dogs,Bean and Saki, are definitely another reason why I love Kim and Frank's place.) (thumbs up)

About the Host, Kim & Frank
Our passions are divided between home and away. We love to travel, especially when it involves the outdoors, adventure and great photo ops. When at home, Kim is the gardener and Frank the chef. We are also avid readers and dog lovers. We have been called foodies and appreciate good food, wine and beer. We prefer to stay in B&Bs and guest houses when traveling and think we have a good sense of what it is like to be both the host and the guest. We take pride in our home and making others welcome. We have both spent most of our lives in and around Philadelphia and enjoy recommending our favorite places to others.
