I had a great stay. Gavin was friendly and offered recommendations for restaurants and coffee houses in the neighborhood.
The bedroom was nice and extremely quiet. I would definitely consider staying here again.
Gavin's place is awesome. We rented out the Master SWEEET and the Spunker Bunker (both seperate listings on airbnb) The master sweeet is the whole apartment, and the spunker bunker is an attached 2nd floor room with access from the first floor.
We went down to Philly with 8 people (6 in the master sweet, 2 in the spunker bunker) and it was plenty of room to feel comfortable. As I said we had the whole place to ourselves and Gavin was very welcoming. We were allowed to use the kitchen for cooking and it was very well equipped.
You will fall in love with Gavin's place the moment you step through the door. His entire home is a throwback to the times of when his neighborhood was built, and industry was king in America. There's lots of reclaimed wood, and other building materials used but it still has a modern touch to it.
The neighborhood was cool. Walking around during the day you will find many murals painted in buildings and lots of cool sculptures scattered about. There's plenty of places within walking distance to eat and drink.
Gavins funky little pad was slightly cozier than expected but had so much charm and flare that it was just more to love in a smaller space! Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Gavin on our trip but he was never out of reach via phone. The Master Sweeet was separate enough that our little merry band of friends didn't feel like we were disturbing the other party staying there - which for us is a feat. I loved the unique DIY feel of the whole space. Gavin obviously put a lot of thought, time, and effort into the space to make it not only his own but really function and thrive in the space. At first, the loft bed and spiral stairs made me nervous but over the course of our stay I loved them, so much character in every little corner of this place! The kitchen was stocked with all manner of utensils so cooking (since it was FRIGID outside) was a complete delight. We unfortunately had to leave a day early due to weather but Gavin promised us a BBQ and beers during the summer so we will definitely be back :)
Thank you for such a unique and exciting experience away from home.
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!
Great place to stay!
This was an amazing Airbnb experience for my friends and I in Philly. We were welcomed into the apartment and shown around. All the other reviews that speak to how cool this apartment is so true. There was plenty of space with 3 floors even with 5 of us staying there for the weekend. Plenty of towels, toiletries, and bedding for all of us. It's in a really cool neighborhood with lots of cool restaurants and shops nearby. We felt safe walking around. Also easy access to the train to get downtown. We will definitely be looking this place up again for our future stays in Philly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
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
Very good location with nice atmosphere ...
Gavin is super outgoing, warm hearted and active. He's all around an awesome guy who will bend backwards to show you a good time. No doubt in my mind your stay with him will be enjoyable. Make it happen!
