Welcome to the Compound! Located on the best street in Philly, the Compound is a very unique property that consists of a row home (fronts to the street) and a rear carriage house (which is only accessed by a private alleyway entrance). I purchased the Compound in 2008 and spent 2 years gutting and rehabbing the property. Utilizing salvaged materials and a touch of creativity I created a place i'm proud to call home! I would love to share my space and help you experience Philly the way it was meant to be. My property was just highlighted in Philly's trendy home blog and can be looked (email hidden) by searching "Rehabbed Carriage House". Guest will have their own private bedroom in the rear carriage house I call the Spunker Bunker. The Spunker Bunker sleeps 2 in the loft on a full sized bed and may also accommodate the couch in the living room. Guests will have access to their own full bathroom and will share the kitchen, living room.
Amenities include: Free WiFi throughout the house, Awesomely Amazing Kitchen, walking distance to numerous cafe's, bars, and sites, the best brunch spot in Philly (Honey's Sit 'n Eat) is one block away, free use of the Compound Cruiser (vintage '50's bicycle), free street parking, access to private courtyard, green roof deck, and breakfast deck off of the 2nd floor kitchen/dinning room.
You're not just getting a place to stay, you're getting an awesome and unique lodging experience!
Talk to you soon!
Other Things to Note
Some dates will have guest staying in the Master Sweeet and will share the kitchen and living room with Spunker Bunker guests.
Just respect my space and you're welcome to make it your own.
While Gavin wasn't in town while we stayed in his home, it felt like we really experienced everything about his personality. It's beautifully decorated and was a great spot to call home base for the weekend.
Unfortunately, I never got a chance to meet Gavin, but his place is very cool and unique. It is also in a good location to explore Northern Liberties and Fishtown, both interesting and vibrant neighborhoods.
This house is truly unique, and it's in a cool neighborhood with some good eats. It was just what I needed for my 4-day weekend.
I'll be looking to stay here again the next time I'm in Philly!
Even though my friend and I only stayed a short time, we had so much fun at Gavin's place. We spent most of our time there on the roof top deck enjoying the amazing view. Gavin was very accommodating and gave us great suggestions as to what we should do during our time in the city. He's a really funny guy and we're really glad we stayed with him! Xo
Gavin was a cool and helpful host. It was easy to get access to the appartement all the time. The bunker itself is undoubtless one of the most exciting highlights in Philadelphia, where you can really feel comfortable. The neighborhood of the appartement is very good, restaurants and supermarkets are reachable by feet. We really recommend a stay in Gavin's appartement.
