The Space

Comfortable, sunny and private bedroom with 1 full sized bed and shared bath. My home is a newly renovated three bedroom row house located in the Pennsport section of Philadelphia. Feel free to use the house's common areas - the living room, kitchen, outdoor patio and a small space to chill out in the finished basement.

The bedroom is located on the second floor on the back side of the house. Included are linens, towels, a mirror, TV, closet and a fan (there’s central AC and heat too). I don’t have cable, but the bedroom’s TV is hooked up to an antenna for broadcast channels and also a hard drive that has a library of movies and TV series with plenty to watch. The house has wireless cable internet.
The bathroom is small and shared, but always clean. It includes toiletries and a hairdryer.
Washer and dryer are available for a small additional fee.

Pennsport is a mostly residential neighborhood. There’s a vegan coffee shop and large park 1 block away and some good restaurants that are also close by. Passyunk Square, the Italian Market and South Street are all about a 5 minute bike ride away and are great areas for eating and shopping. Center City is about a 15 minute bike ride and I’m also about 5 minutes from ikea, target and some groceries stores. Street parking near the house is free with no time restrictions and there are bus stops 1 block away.

  • Had an awesome stay at Michael's! He was the perfect host and his home is clean and very inviting. The room we stayed in was everything I could have asked for. Will definitely stay here again!

  • Mike was great and very helpful and kind. The room and bathroom were very clean and nice. The neighborhood was very close to fun restaurants and places to go out. The neighborhood wasn't as nice as we were hoping but the room is still a steal!

  • Michael's place is conveniently located about 5 minutes off I-95, and since I got there in the middle of the day was able to get parking on his street. Location is about 5 blocks from East Passyunk ave which has a bunch of restaurants/cafes to eat at. Also about a 25-30 minute walk to Old City/historic area of Philly, although I'm sure there are also bus routes that can get you there a bit faster.

    The house was very clean, as was the advertised room (which I actually found to be bigger than most other private rooms I have stayed in). Shared bathroom is kept clean as well. Nice enclosed back patio with seating for guests.

    Michael was great at communicating about arrival time/parking questions/etc. Quickly responsive to any inquiries in general. Got to talk with him a bit the first night I was there and he was super nice and low key. Would definitely check out this listing next time I visit the city and decide to airbnb for my stay.

  • It was a quick one night stay. Michael was personable, courteous and pleasant and at the same time not intrusive. He had a friendly and at the same time professional approach. He gave me very helpful directions before my arrival on how to get to a venue some distance away on foot. He was responsive to any email queries in advance of the stay, and checked with me the day before to give me last minute instructions. I found the whole process very straightforward and without any stress. I would be happy to recommend Michael as host.

  • Michael was an above and beyond host. Being an Air bnb rookie, I accidentally locked myself out of the home. Michael responded as soon as possible (on a Saturday night) and offered to pick me up at the coffee shop I had gone to wait at which was very nice. The room and shared bathroom were clean and comfortable. There is a coffee/french press and cereal for the morning. The location is walking distance to Pat's or Geno's (authentic cheesesteaks!) and a short drive (10mins) to Old City. Street parking was a bit challenging and the neighborhood is up and coming but should be comfortable for anyone accustomed to living in large cities. All in all, I'd recommend the room to anyone looking for a quick and comfortable stay.

  • Michael's place was the perfect spot to stay for a night in Philly. Close to the bus stop which was 15 minutes from downtown and plenty of eating options nearby as well. The room was spacious and quiet and it was a breeze accessing the apartment and getting in

I'm an advertising professional living in Philadelphia. In my free time I like making music, running and improving my house. I like traveling, but an interesting fact about me is that I've only traveled outside of the country to go to Shanghai for work. One day I'll get to Canada or Mexico.
