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 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.

For rent is a small private bedroom on the second floor. The bed is a comfy full size mattress, and can only accommodate 2 people.
The bedroom is private, and is located on the second floor, next to the bathroom.
If there are no other guests at the time you will have the floor (and bathroom) to yourself!

You will be sharing the house with us (Sari and Sebastien), and our friendly and sweet cat Ku, and possibly other guests in the larger 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.

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 charge an additional $15 fee for reservation made less than 24hours in advance.

>> IMPORTANT>>

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.

Write us soon, we'd love to have you as our guest!
We are LGBT friendly!

Thank you, and see you soon, Sebastien & Sari

  • The home is gorgeous and the room is exactly as advertised. It's in one of the most enjoyable neighbourhoods in Philly so it's hard to find anything to complain about. Both hosts very polite, knowledgeable, and helpful. Highest recommendation.

  • Sari and Sebastian are lovely, gracious hosts. They were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about their neighborhood and Philadelphia. The room is clean and cozy and has easy access to a large shared bathroom (also very clean). The house is very charmingly decorated and located in a vibrant neighborhood, with easy access to the MFL for transportation around town and many good bars, cafes, and restaurants within easy walking distance. I'd definitely recommend this listing for individual travelers or couples on short trips.

  • Sari and Sebastien are very artistically oriented, down-to-earth, friendly people. Their neighborhood, Fishtown, is one of the "up and coming" areas of Philadelphia, and full of vitality, as a result. Great to see a place that supports artists and folks who are just getting established professionally, in a sense. I had the best Indian meal I have ever had, at a nearby restaurant called Ekta. I recommend their place to anyone who wants to have an insider's experience of the City of Brotherly Love.

    April 2014
  • A cozy room in really nice house in the middle of a hip and young neighborhood!

  • I had a splendid time staying with Sari and Sebastian. The room was simple and splendidly furnished. Even though it looked unassuming on the outside, the home is very welcoming. I enjoyed my time there.

  • Perfect. And I mean it. They are both very nice people. The room was very clean and nice. The bathroom flawless. The area is very nice and quiet and it's very well located, close the subway and to many cute tiny bars in the area.

    I totally recommend it!! :)

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.
