Interaction with Guests
We live in the next town over but work very close to house. We will not be present during stay.
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.
Local trolly and subway within walking distance.

This is a special space. First visit to Fishtown, having a detached house and a yard was awesome! Really nice to come "home" to after visiting the restaurants and bars Issa recommended (all of them were top notch, of course, and especially EGG pub). If you're in Philly on business like I was, this is a great option: a quick walk to the train, easy public transit option to City Hall or anywhere near it. Bike share isn't too far away either. Fishtown is a fun neighborhood to stay in if you like to go out. We walked around quite a bit and didn't see anything that gives you the privacy that this home offers.
Issa made it very clear how to pick up the keys and enter the house. No problem at all. The house was immaculate, and there was information regarding restaurants and things to do on the tables. Two bedrooms (with room air conditioners), two baths both with showers, big kitchen, comfortable living room.
The house is near a major thoroughfare, but the noise did not bother us. The Fishtown neighborhood is clearly coming up, but even now the house is close to plenty of restaurants. Historic sites in Philly are nearby. Fair warning, though: this house is in an old, urban neighborhood. Parking is very tight, and though gentrification is taking place, not everything has been gentrified. Still some grit (or charm), depending on your take.
My mother and I just stayed in Issa's home in fishtown and had a wonderful time together! Issa was helpful and responsive with any questions I had throughout the trip, yet respected our privacy at all times. The house was bright, spacious, funky and filled with art and unique trinkets on a quiet street. My favorite part of the house (other than the spacious kitchen) was the back yard and sun room attached. It was grassy and serene. We watched the fireflies flit through the summer evening while lounging in comfy chairs. This house had an excellent location and the Palm Tree market which was a three minute walk away had everything we could need including a full deli with great hoagies! Thank you for providing a wonderful place for us to enjoy a long awaited mother- daughter trip!
Great house close to the city Center. Quite residential area with many restaurant options close by. Very clean and comfortable. Will come back again!
From the moment we got into this beautiful home the trip was made. We quickly went out to explore what the neighborhood has to offer and boy were we so pleasantly surprised. Fish town neighborhood is SO AWESOME, and the home was walking distance to every thing we needed(even walked from city center). Issa was very accommodating, and literally had every thing you could need for a trip. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the place to a friend or stay again. THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN, ISSA!
The home was lovely and convenient to everything. We really enjoyed the backyard! Issa was super friendly and helpful. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
We were so happy with our experience at Issa's house. The home is so spacious and well decorated. The two bathrooms are a plus and the washer and dryer are so nice. We were pleasantly surprised to find a patio and backyard with comfy seating on top of everything else! I could go on and on about the space. The location is perfect too. We loved that we could walk everywhere, including the gorgeous La Colombe flagship store. Issa was always quick to respond to any of our questions and I felt like she was always available. I hope you enjoy this place as much as we did.
