We live on a quiet and safe residential block, just 5 blocks from the Market Frankford line, which will take you most anywhere you want to go in Philadelphia. Fishtown is one of the artsiest neighborhoods in the city, and has great nightlife and food options.

We are walking distance from many neighborhood hotspots: go dancing at the Barbarie, 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 neighborhood's many 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. train ride away.

For rent is a large private bedroom on the second floor.
You will be sharing the house with us (Sari and Sebastien), and our friendly and sweet cat Ku; and possibly other guests in the smaller room.

If you have severe cat allergies this is not the place for you, but she is not allowed in the bedrooms so anyone with minor allergies will do fine.

The room can accommodate up to 4 people. It has one queen sized bed with a real mattress, and another full sized futon can be used to accommodate an additional 2 people.
The bedroom is very private, and is located on the second floor, down the hall from the bathroom. If there are no other guests at the time you will have the floor (and bathroom) to yourself!

Street parking is available, and if you're coming via public transportation and you're the type to get lost, we can meet you at the station.

We provide linens, soap, shampoo, etc. You will have access to a full kitchen with microwave/toaster, as well as a washer/ dryer for laundry.


We do ask for people to have complete profiles with real pics and personal information. This being our home, we like to know who is asking to stay.

Check in is after 3pm but we are flexible, and will work with you on time (earlier is sometimes possible, later is definitely fine.) and check out is at 12pm.

A $15 fee will be applied to reservations that are made less than 24hours in advance.

Write us soon, we'd love to have you as our guest!
Our home is LGBT friendly!

Thank you, Sebastien & Sari

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We only stayed for a night, but we had a really good stay! The room was spacious and well-kept, and hosts Sebastien and Sari are really nice and willing to help us. Located close to a metro/subway station is a big bonus. Overall we enjoyed our one night in Philly here and recommend the place to anyone visiting Philly!

  • Sari & Sebastian were very easy to communicate with regarding our reservation and flexible with our arrival time, which was great! They were also super friendly when we arrived and throughout our visit. The place itself was very comfortable, clean, and located within walking distance of many good restaurants and cafes. We would definitely stay again and recommend them to others!

    March 2014
  • Sari and Sebastian were very friendly, accommodating hosts with great suggestions for slightly-off-the-beaten-path attractions and art galleries. The house is comfortable, homey and clean, and the Fishtown neighborhood is really fun to explore. Highly recommended!

  • Sari's home was an excellent introduction to Fishtown. It is conveniently located within walking distance of great bars and restaurants as well as public transportation. The space itself is a cozy winter haven, full of lovely details. Such pleasant hosts!

    February 2014
  • My partner and I arrived in the evening. Sari and Sebastian were very kind and accommodating. Their house is very nice. I found the location of their home to be great as well. There are plenty of things to do around fishtown! They have the sweetest cat, too. The both of us had a very comfortable stay. Thanks so much.

  • My friend and I stayed here to get ready for the Philadelphia Marathon, and Sari and Sebastien were incredibly kind, communicative and generous hosts at a time when rest was crucial. Their beautiful house is nestled in the Fishtown neighborhood near transportation and dozens of great restaurants. Their book collection is outstanding, and their adorable cat is very friendly to strangers and keeps her distance away from the dander-free guest rooms. (No allergies activated, here.) Enjoyed my conversations with the hosts and would definitely look them up again for my next trip to Philly.

    November 2013
  • Our stay with Sari was perfect. Everything was easy, comfortable, convenient, and exactly as advertised. We had busy days at a seminar and barely saw our gracious hosts but they left helpful information about the neighborhood for us in our room and everything we needed to access was in easy walking distance. I would definitely stay here again!

    November 2013
  • Great place! My girlfriend and I stayed with Sari and Sebastien for one night at their house in Fish Town. It was a good location, the area felt safe. They were both incredibly kind and gracious hosts. There house and our room was clean and beautifully decorated. We chatted with them for a bit before heading out for the night, we both used to live in the same neighborhood in Brooklyn. They also gave us some good recommendations for food and drinks. Would definitely recommend their place!

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. Sebastien loves to cook and is great at it. Sari bakes a darn good pie. We are both artists and creatives. Between the two of us we design, illustrate, develop interactive campaigns, and make art.
