Staying with Andrew and his wife Nicole for a weekend in Philly was just awesome. They are environmentally conscious, warm, well-read, progressive and put you totally at ease. They provided my friend and I many tips on where to go to eat, drink, dance, be merry, and get a nice caffeine-buzz. I enjoyed the walk with them to the Italian Market, the Asian grocery and meeting some of their family and friends. Their home is in an awesome location within easy walking distance of all that center-city has to offer. For those with cars, there is an inexpensive parking garage at 10th and South Street. Street parking is tough with a 2 hr max. The living space was large and clean and full of interesting plants, flowers and books. They were flexible and accommodating and let me stay a coupIe extra hours since my train back to Boston was not departing until the early-afternoon. I wish the young couple (and their first baby) the best and would stay with them again in a heart-beat.
Thank you Andrew, everything was great. We were lucky to have the whole house for our self. Location, space, parking worked fantastic. If ever in Philly, we stay there again.
Had a great time in Philly. Centrally located great for a walking tour of the city. Andrew is a great host and can provide tip and pointers for the area
Andrew and Nicole were great hosts, and room is beautiful and exactly as the pictures show. The location is also unbeatable--within walking distance of pretty much every major tourist attraction in one direction, and walking distance to fantastic little neighborhood restaurants and cafes in the other. We'd highly recommend not bringing a car because parking is pretty difficult. Great stay!
Andrew was a great host! He made sure someone was there to meet us (as we arrived late in the evening) and recommended a great spot for dinner nearby (Sabrina's...a great choice, delicious food). The room was just as described and pictured--very neat and tidy. This was perfect for a quick weekend away. A great location that's not a bad walk to get to some main sights and restaurants...I'd definitely look to stay here again on my next visit to Philly.
We really enjoyed our stay at Andrew and Nicole's. Their house is really nicely renovated and the room was spacious, bright, and private. The shower was a treat! The neighborhood is quiet and within walking distance of most of the areas we explored downtown. They responded very quickly to our emails and were warm and friendly. We were lucky to stay in such a great space on our first visit to Philadelphia!
Super-nice hosts, great location, great restaurant recommendations. Philly is such a super-bikeable city so having the bikes that Matthew offered was just wonderful. Nice,self-contained, clean room.
We had a great time in Philadelphia and felt very comfortable at Andrew and Nicole's home. The master suite was very cozy, clean and full of light. Andrew and Nicole are both very knowledgeable of the city and shared some great recommendations. They are positioned in a great part of the city allowing us to walk everywhere we needed to go. We parked our car friday afternoon and didn't unlock the car until we left Sunday morning. They offered up bikes if we wanted including a tandem which we may have to try out next time we are in town.
We would absolutely consider staying here again the next time we visit Philly!
We head to Philadelphia often and have gotten to the point where staying with friends is nice, but we could really use our own space. Through AirBNB we found Andrews place. We choose this listing based on it's location, layout and recommendations of other guest.
The location of the house is centrally located and walkable to activity in South Philly, the downtown area, Center City as well as Northern Liberties. My husband and I wanted a place where we had basic kitchen access should we need it, but otherwise had our own space. The entire third floor is an open floor plan with bathroom features included in suite. Andrew had some additional amenities like fancy speakers, a media center, internet access, etc.... that gave the room some extra desirability. All in all, the room was private and cozy. Not to mention, we found the room to be impeccably tidy and organized. Lastly, Andrew's description is spot on, the pictures accurately portray what the room looks like. In addition, his description of what amenities are available is also spot on.
We are definitely recommending this place to friends traveling to Philly, it was perfect! And, Andrew was very helpful and accommodating with any questions that we had.
Nice room, friendly people. Room looks like the pictures. Decent neighborhood. I would consider staying here again.
Andrew was a great guest.
Andrew was the perfect guest. He was extremely quite, respectful and he is an interesting person. Boscoe and I enjoyed having him as our guest , would welcome him back anytime and highly recommend him as a guest. Next time stay longer and work less :).
A fine guest.
The staff at our Treehouse in Bali loved hosting Andrew and Nicole. They were the perfect courteous guests and it was a pleasure to have them stay with us. We hope they'll come back and visit some time again soon and we recommend them to any other Airbnb hosts! :-)
Great customer. I hope he will visit Miami and book with us again!
Andrew and his girl were terrific guests, not least because they loved my awesome neighborhood! I hope they stay with me again sometime.
Andrew's place is spacious, charming, and in one of Philly's more flavorful and youthful neighborhoods. The house itself is great, and Andrew is a wonderful person who loves bikes, being social, good food, and trying new things. He also speaks Portuguese and Spanish and is great with people, so he's a great guy to give you advice on things to do while in Philadelphia. He's also one of the sweetest people that I know (harmless!) and anyone will feel more than comfortable staying with him.
