Interaction with Guests
Depends on how busy we are, we work both from home, and are sometimes offsite at our studio. Sometimes we are here all day and can have brief conversations, but generally if we are at home working we ask that people be considerate of our time.
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 5 blocks from the Market Frankford line (MFL), which will take you most anywhere you want to go in Philadelphia. (11mins to center city, 15 min to 30 st train station) 3 blocks from the Trolley, and numerous bus lines.
We are also right near i95, Delaware ave and the Ben Franklin Bridge.
Other Things to Note

The cat is not allowed in the bedrooms so anyone with minor allergies will do fine.
*No smoking in the house.
*No shoes in the house.
*Once we discuss a check in time, we ask that you call us if you are running late or your plans have changed. We also ask that you call or text when you are about a half an hour from the house.
*The cat is not allowed in the bedroom. (But the rest of the house is free game for snuggling)
*Feel free to look at/read our collection of books, but be nice to them please.

*Please be considerate of other guests when coming in and leaving in the morning/ evening.
*Please be considerate of other guests in the amount of time you take getting ready/ showering in the bathrooms. (As in, if there are two other guests in the house, use your common sense and don't spend 2 hours showering and primping.)
Sari and Sebastien were great hosts, and the room was very comfortable. I was traveling on business, so my needs were just for a bed to flop into at the end of the night. I was very happy with the room and the bed. I would love to stay there again!
Absolutely wonderful hosts! The house and room are very esthetically pleasing. Fishtown is also a very cool neighborhood with great little bars and restaurants. I had a blast hanging out there. Very cool vibe. I'll definitely stay there again next time I'm in Philly!
My wife and I had a terrific time at Sari and Sebastien's home! The house was very pretty, very clean, and super comfortable. The bed was better than ours, allowing us to rest well after our long walks in Philly. While our stay was short, 2 nights, this neighborhood's abundance of amenities within a 3 or 4-block distance allow us to explore restaurants, cafe, and other great spots. A metro station just 5 short blocks away provided trains into many of the great city areas just 10-15 minutes away. We loved Philly and that was in part due to the great hosts we had.
Thanks guys and hope to be back soon!
This was my second time at Sari and Sebastien's home, and they made me feel very welcome. I was there during one of the coldest spells in the city, and the room was super warm and comfy. Sari and Sebastien communicate well, and their home is clean, quiet and perfect. I would definitely recommend this spot, and will return.
Thanks to Sari and Sebastien for opening their home to my friend and I. As described here, the rooms were clean and had what was promised. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting. Liked Fishtown area, although it was a bit too quiet the weekend we visited, possibly because of the cold weather.
Sari and Sebastian's home was beautiful and on a perfectly quiet street for us to recharge for the night. We were only there for one night so we didn't get to check out the neighborhood much, but we drove by some of the many bars and restaurants they recommended. The house was clean and recently remodeled. Thanks guys!
Sari and Sebastien have now hosted production crew from NY for our video shoots here in Fishtown twice. Both times they've been wonderful and generous hosts. The room is beautiful and the house is very close to site, so it is very convenient. We are so happy to know this little gem of a spot exists and will inquire with them first before looking elsewhere, for certain!

Sari and Sébastien are a couple of New York expats living in Philadelphia. We have a nice and cozy home that we love sharing with guests. Sebastien has lived all over the world and can speak to you in French, or possibly poor Spanish. Sari is just from New Jersey and can speak highly competent English to you. We are both artists and creatives. Between the two of us we design, illustrate, teach, and make art.
Honorable mention goes to our rotund but friendly kitty, Ku.
