Interaction with Guests
When we rent out the whole house, we will see you when you are coming in, but probably miss you on the way out. If you have the house for a longer stay, we or a caretaker will stop by the house to deal with house chores a few times depending on length of stay.
We live on a quiet and safe residential block, in Fishtown one of the artsiest neighborhoods in Philadelphia, and with great nightlife and food options.
We are walking distance from many neighborhood hotspots: go dancing at the Barbary, drink beer out of a giant stein at Frankford Hall, have a terrific microbrew at Kraftwork, catch shows at Johnny Brenda's, go to an art opening at one of the many neighborhood galleries, or have an Italian feast at Modo Mio.
We are also very close to other great neighborhoods like Northern Liberties and Old City, both just south of us. Center City is just a short 10 min. subway ride away.
We are very close to center city, (11mins on the MFL to City Hall; 15 mins to the 30th st station.)
We are also near Old City and a lot of the historical destinations: 7mins to 2nd st stop and 5th st stop on the MFL.
You can use both the Girard or Berks. our house is equidistant.
Girard has the most activities around it (bars, 7 eleven etc).
There is also the trolley on Girard.
We are a few blocks from I-95, Delaware ave, Spring Garden st, and the Ben Franklin Bridge, and in general it is easy to access north south and east from here.
Other Things to Note
If you have severe cat allergies this is not the place for you.
The cat is not allowed in the 2nd floor bedrooms but the 3rd floor bedroom and bathrooms, are hers, so it is probably not the best if you are allergic to cats.
*No smoking in the house. (use the backyard)
*No shoes in the house. (ok on first floor, but really not anywhere else.)
*The cat is not allowed in the bedrooms. (But the rest of the house is fair game for snuggling)
*Feel free to look at/read our collection of books, but be nice to them and return them to their places, please.
*Please don't put glasses directly on wood surfaces in the house, use the coasters..
*Sebastien has a mild allergy to most perfumes, so please refrain from spraying excess amounts of perfume, or using large amounts of perfumed products.
We had a terrific stay. The house was spacious and clean. The hosts were accessible and pleasant. Highly recommend!
Sari & Sebastien's home was very open and spacious, especially for a row house. The bedrooms were large and easily able to accommodate 5 adults, 2 children and LOTS of luggage and toys. The two bathrooms were extremely large and newly updated. The street was quiet and we felt very safe walking to and from ours cars. Their neighborhood is centrally located to key Philadelphia sites and easy distance to the airport. Overall we had a great stay, but, floors could have been cleaner, especially since were asked not to wear shoes in the house.
Everything was as described including the neighbourhood. The was fast wifi, the kitchen was fully stocked and generally had a very homey feel. One can easily tell that great care and love has been put into this home over the years. The bathrooms were also a great plus. They were spacious, modern and very clean.
Sari and Sebastien were wonderful hosts and the house was exactly as described. We had a large group (10!) and we all fit very comfortably. The house was clean and nice and the neighborhood excellent. We had a wonderful time and so appreciated their hospitality!
The hosts were fantastic! We had a wonderful time staying at this location despite the weather.
I rented this house for 10 (though we ended up having 8) for new years eve and we had a great time here. Sari and Sebastian were super friendly. I was a bit concerned about parking but there is ample parking on the street about a block away and our multiple guests were able to park their cars fine. Fishtown is a nice area with lots of new bars and restaurants in the area and is just a short taxi ride from downtown. There were binders in all the bedrooms with house rules and advice about the area, wifi password, etc. They had a stereo with a plug for guests to plug in their own ipod which we used.
I have a very slight cat allergy but their house was clean enough that I didn't even notice. Just understand that the cat will be staying in the house and let all your guests know as we had one couple with more severe allergies that didn't read that part and ended up needing to stay elsewhere, but that oversight was on us.
Beds were comfy and bathrooms roomy and clean. Overall a great stay and if our out of town friends had stayed longer we would have loved to have spent multiple days in the house!
