Interaction with guests

We live in the next town over but work very close to house. We will not be present during stay.

The neighborhood

Walking distance to great bars, music venues, restaurants. Frankford avenue shops one block from house. Some of our favorite close spots for food and music are..
Fette Sau – Brooklyn’s notable barbecue restaurant. Dry-rubbed, well-prepared meats from local farms that are smoked in-house; simple and elegant side dishes; and communal seating on wooden picnic tables. Fette Sau (German for “fat pig”) also boasts nine beers and a cider on tap, as well as a handful of North American bourbons and whiskeys to pair with the BBQ. 1208 Frankford Avenue, (phone number hidden), (website hidden).

Frankford Hall – Modern German beer garden. This indoor/outdoor Stephen Starr hotspot keeps 12 beers on tap, most of which patrons can order in half- and full-liter helpings. Authentic German foods like pretzels to bratwurst, open-air picnic-table seating, a center campfire and ping-pong tables make for a memorable evening on the town.

Johnny Brenda’s – Show-goers can take in great views (and a bit of a break) on the balcony at Johnny Brenda’s, a 250-person venue that plays host to touring indie music acts year-round. The two bars—downstairs in the restaurant/bar area and upstairs on the concert floor—pour all-draught, all-local beers. The menu changes daily depending on what ingredients the kitchen is able to obtain from local farmers. 1201 N. Frankford Avenue
Kung Fu Necktie – Inexpensive beer and one of the best-sounding small rooms in the city. Concert early birds can shoot some pool in the game room upstairs.

Getting around

Local trolly and subway within walking distance.

We really enjoyed staying at this house. Check in was a breeze and the pictures accurately reflect what the house actually looks like. Some things have changed or have been updated, but overall it was great. There was quite a bit of street noise as we were there on a weekend and people were out at the bars. Also, the streetlights do shine directly in the main bedroom windows so the room isn't the darkest. The house has a small outdoor space, however, it was quite overgrown so we did not use it. The only big issue that we had was parking. As we arrived on a Friday night there was very little parking to be found, which made things a bit challenging. The house is a 5 minute walk from the subway station and then a 10 minute ride right into historic downtown Philly.

Fish town is a cute neighbourhood, and the house is a classic 'trinity' design. Very colourful and retro decor. Two nice bedrooms; the third floor bedroom might be claustrophobic for some. Relaxing spot, walking distance to bars & eateries. The kitchen is large, but the equipment supplied might not be enough to cook a real meal; but there are plenty of fab restaurants in the area. Notable place we ate: Wm. Mulherin's Sons.

My stay at Issa's place was just perfect. It was so close to the action of great bars and restaurants in Fishtown, yet the place itself was so homely and had everything that one would need. Fast internet, 2 x bathrooms, washer and dryer and a great outdoor area. I would definitely stay at this place again when I'm in Philly again. Thanks for providing such a great home Issa.

This was our first try with Airbnb and it couldn't have gone more smoothly! The listing was exactly as promised, very clean with great amenities. We were in town for our daughter's wedding and the location was just perfect for every event that we attended. And we always found a parking spot! It had such a homey feel and after a long day of wedding festivities we could come back and rest, relax and kick back! We will definitely use Airbnb in the future!

We were very pleased with our stay . The house was very clean and comfortable . It was in a good location for restaurants and being near downtown . We had a car so didn't need public transportation . It was just like it looked in the picture except that the outdoor space was very overgrown being the middle of summer. It was too hot to be outside anyway . We very much enjoyed having our morning coffee and breakfast on the enclosed side porch. Issa was very easy to communicate with and arrival and departure were easy with a lock box with a key .
