Interaction with Guests
We are both busy professionals so are often at work, but fortunately we work nearby and will be able to provide you with all necessary information regarding the house, Fairmount, and Philadelphia in general. We are lifelong Philadelphians (and major foodies!) so are always willing to offer great restaurant recommendations. We are here to help out with any question or concern you may have!
Just blocks north of Center City / Rittenhouse, Fairmount is a residential oasis in an urban setting. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, but the hustle and bustle of the city is easily accessible by public transportation, cab, or car.
We are within walking distance to Fairmount Park and its running trails (alongside the Schuylkill River).
We are excited to give recommendations for local restaurants, museums, parks, and other attractions. Don't be shy - just ask!
Stops for major bus routes (including 7, 33, 48) within walking distance. Two blocks from easy taxi access on Fairmount Avenue. Short cab or bus ride from 30th Street Station (Philadelphia's main train station), Suburban Station, and Market East Station.
Parking is available in a private lot just 2 blocks from our home. Free street parking is available and easy during the day but becomes more difficult at night (though not impossible).
Other Things to Note
As mentioned, we have 2 cats, and one dog so please - no cat/dog allergies or cat/dog haters.
Also, if both of our guest rooms are rented, you will be sharing the bathroom with another guest.
We had a wonderful time which perfectly met our needs I wish I could have stayed longer. Brady is a perfect host who could not have been more welcoming or attentive. The house is in a good location very convenient, a fantastic breakfast cafe very near and Brady is very knowledgeable about where to eat. Brady went out of his way to make us feel welcome, we luxuriated in his hot tub the first night which was extremely relaxing; we loved the cats and dog too which made us feel very much at home. I highly recommend this place if you want to visit Phily.
Fantastic. Brady and the crew, including loving pooch and chill cats made my stay naturally relaxed and comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and soulful. Highly recommended. Was at conference downtown and easy Uber and can ride. All in all, it was a great alternative to an overpriced hotel downtown or staying out by the airport. Thanks again Brian.
Great location, friendly hosts, room perfect, enjoyed dinner with the guys, friendly cats and dog, would certainly return.
My girlfriend and I stayed with Joe and Brady and we had a wonderful time. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Parking was hard to find on the friday night which we arrived but they informed us of a paid lot which was about two blocks from the apartment. Brady was there to meet us and Joe arrived a few minutes later. They were a great source of conversation and information about the surrounding area, the restaurants, attractions, running trails, etc. The pets were also very friendly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to visit philadelphia because they are just as excellent as their location relative to the city. I would most definitely stay there again.
Absolute perfect location, home and hosts!! I enjoyed the entire experience and will definitely return.
I give the experience 5 stars!!

Adresse à recommander
Brady was there to greet us when we arrived. The house is clean and the bed is very comfortable. They even had a bottle of wine waiting for us. Their pets (2 cats and a dog) are sweet and well behaved. The house is located in the heart of the Fairmount neighborhood and is close to many attractions. We loved staying here and highly recommend it!

About the Host, Joseph
I am a recent law school graduate from Philadelphia who has lived in California, Iowa, DC and now back in Philly. I love to travel when I'm not working and enjoy taking long runs and swims (when I have time.) And when I'm not working at the law firm, I enjoy curling up with a great novel.
