Our house is a 3 floor, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, row house in Philadelphia's exciting Fishtown neighborhood.

This listing is for the rental of the whole house, which can sleep 10 sharing 4 real beds and 1 double height air mattress.

We can sometimes accommodate an additional 4, with air mattresses in the dining and living areas.
(Although we try to limit this since this tends to promote extra wear on the house)
There is an extra wear fee that we charge after 10guests. (That is separate from our per person fee).
----------------------------------------------------------
Check in is after 4pm but we require a scheduled appointment time.

Our schedules are somewhat flexible, and we will work with you on arrival times. (we can also leave keys if it is very late.)

Earlier check in is not possible with whole house rentals, we usually recommend for people to meet up in one of the large bars/restaurants/coffee shops near us.)

Check out is by 1pm, and you do not need to schedule this with us. we have checkout instructions in the house binders.

You can also leave luggage behind in our living room if you are not leaving Philadelphia right after check out, and pick them up later.

You can also sometimes arrange to pick up keys earlier in the day and schedule an actual time to come back, before the house becomes available.

We are LGBT friendly, we welcome everyone and love meeting new people!

Thank you, and see you soon, Sebastien

It is really easy to get here via subway/bus/trolley and if driving we are just blocks from the i95 expressway.

If you're coming via public transportation and you're the type to get lost, we can meet you at the station, or give you detailed personal directions.

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.

Other things to note

If you have severe cat allergies this is not the place for you.
The cat also lives in the house and will be there when you stay, she is a part of the rental and does not leave the house with us.

The cat is not allowed in the 2nd floor bedrooms so those are safe for the mildly allergic.
The 3rd floor bedroom and the living room though, are hers, so those areas are probably not the best if you very are allergic to cats.

Sebastien was great, such a nice guy. He detailed cool things to do in the neighborhood and was very communicative when we had questions or anything. Place was exactly as pictured and described. Nice & cozy, but still room for a big crew. Ku is a super cool cat, a little shy at first, but by the end of our stay I'd say we were best friends. Thanks Sebastien & Sari & Ku for giving us your home for the weekend. Would come back anytime.

Sari warmly welcomed our group with a house tour and recommended spots to check out in the neighborhood. The house was perfect for our weekend getaway - our group of 8 was more than comfortable and the location is excellent. Fishtown has lots of great restaurants and bars and is a quick walk or taxi to other fun parts of town. Highly recommend this home for your stay in Philly!

Sebastien was super nice and communicative. Neighborhood is great; Fishtown is Philly's still-rough-around-the-edges East Williamsburg. Great place to spend the week. Accommodations were great; just as described in the post.

Sebastien was extremely welcoming and very thorough in ensuring the place was equipped and ready to go. He walked us through his space and made sure we were well acquainted with the area. He has a very comfortable and unique home.

Sebastien met our group on arrival. Very friendly, open, and it was easy to fit into the workings of their home. Nice cat! There's a great coffee shop around the corner across from a lovely corner park. We were able to come and go easily. thanks Sari and Sebastien, we'll be back again most definitely.

The neighborhood had restaurants and coffee shops to walk to. The house was on a quiet street. The living room, kitchen, and dining room were large enough for our party. How bedrooms were neat and clean. The bathrooms were also fresh and clean. Overall we really enjoyed our experience. Sebastian was easy to get in touch with and easy to work with.
