About this listing
Second floor bedroom with comfortable queen bed, full private bathroom and space to relax or check your e-mail. The bathroom includes hairdryer, basic toiletries and plenty of towels. The bedroom also has a dresser and closet for longer stay guests. The room has three windows, two of which face the backyard garden.
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 usually 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 we 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 very accommodating. They allowed me to drop my bags off early and had the room's AC cranking when I got there (it was 90+ with humidity) outside.
When I connected with Frank upon my return, he was very informative about all the restaurant choices and the general nature of the neighborhood. They even offered coffee and tea for the morning.
The room itself was very comfortable and quite. Stocked with water bottles and fresh towels.
I would definitely recommend Kim and Frank and would stay there again!
I had a pleasant stay at Kim and Frank's house. Both Kim and Frank are very nice and helpful. The room was very clean.
Nice spacious and private room in a cool neighborhood with lost of restaurants and bars. And downtown is a short bus ride away.
Kim & Frank are great hosts and made us feel welcome in their home.
Really glad we got to experience Philly like a local!
Kim & Frank were welcoming and helpful at every step of my stay with them (3 nights). The room with ensuite bathroom is ample for 1 or 2 people to stay for multiple days, and affords privacy from the rest of the house. I also got to have some good conversations about cities, traveling and their own use of AirBnb with them. Great experience. They even left bottled water (along with some snacks) on the dresser, which helped me after a long trip quickly rehydrate upon arrival.
We had a great first experience using airbnb. The accommodations at Kim and Frank's En Suite were just as they advertised. We had a private room and bath, both of which were of a great size and immaculately kept. We also appreciated the welcome note, water, chocolates, and maps to city attractions left on the dresser. Another plus was having internet access which was greatly appreciated as well! It was clear that a great deal of effort and thought went into preparing for our upcoming stay.
The neighborhood was quite lovely. We meet some nice people and ate at several great cafes there. Also, we were within walking distance to the Festival Pier and downtown, which was great. More importantly, we felt safe and welcomed, and would definitely consider staying at Kim & Frank's place again.
Highly recommended. Great location and lovely home. The ensuite room is very accomodating, clean, and spacious. Walking distance from bars and restaurants. Accesible street parking nearby.
Kim and Frank were very welcoming. The room and bath are lovey, just as advertised. They provided bottles of water as welcoming gifts and made their kitchen available.The neighborhood is great - so much change, great architecture a lot of interesting buildings going up. (I walked past log cabin near Brown and 4th which was quite unbelievable.) I found un-metered parking that did not require a sticker, without too much trouble. Lots of good restaurants in the immediate vicinity and about a 30 minute walk into the center city. Once I parked I never used my car.

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.
