Only 2 blocks from the subway, with easy access to all of the sights of Center City and the history of Old City.
Only a 1/2 mi from hip E Passyunk bars and restaurants, 1/2 mi from Pat's/Geno's cheesesteaks and less than a mi from Italian Market.
You will have our private guest bedroom on the 2nd floor, which contains 1 queen bed. Air conditioning is available in the summer and the house is well-heated in the winter.
We only have one full bathroom, so you will be sharing the bathroom with me and my wife. We will provide towels, and shampoo and soap if needed.
We live only 2 blocks from the Broad Street subway line which will take you anywhere in Philly that you need to go!
FYI. As we have received inquiries from 2 people that may not want to sleep in the same bed, please keep in mind that we can only offer the 1 bedroom with 1 queen bed. The bedroom has limited space, and probably not enough room for an additional blow-up mattress or airbed, though there would be enough space for a sleeping bag if someone is inclined to sleep on the floor.
You have full access to a private guest bedroom and to a full bathroom that is shared with me and my wife. We will provide you access to our wireless internet. You are welcome to relax in our living room and use the TV if you want. You are also welcome to use our kitchen, refrigerator, and utensils, however we cannot provide any food or drink.
Interakcija s gostima
Our interaction level is up to you! We will have to communicate about use of the shared bathroom, and we may interact in shared spaces (entryway, living room, kitchen). My wife and I love to meet new people, and I love to give people local perspectives and suggestions for sightseeing/restaurants/bars. If you are up for that, please, please, please ask! If you prefer your privacy, that is also something we can respect, and it is also fine to let us know.
We usually work Monday to Friday and hit bed by midnight, but are very active on the weekends and love to go out with people for dinner and drinks. If you are interested I love to show people around the city on my days off. I work part-time as a professional tour guide. Again, please ask!
No pets here, no smokers... Sorry. But, beer is welcome!
My wife and I have lived in Philadelphia for over 13 years, and in South Philly for over 7. We bought this house in the Point Breeze (or Newbold) neighborhood about 3 years ago, and we love living here! Tons of great shops, restaurants, and bars are within walking distance. Plus, if we want to get out of our hood, we are only a block from the subway and Center City is less than a mile and a half away.
I work as a music therapist with people diagnosed with mental illness. I also have a part-time job as a professional tour guide in Philadelphia, so let me know if you are interested in taking a private tour! In my spare time I love listening to music, playing guitar, and tasting new craft beers and whiskeys. My wife works for a federally funded education nonprofit that helps public schools in Philadelphia. In her spare time she is a big reader and wine and coffee drinker. We both love spending time with friends and trying new restaurants (or eating at old favorites).
We also love traveling, and meeting new people, hence our interest in AirBnB! We've been all over the U.S. and Europe as well as to Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Tanzania, and Ghana. I am jealous that Jen has been to Japan, and she is jealous that I've been to Australia. When traveling I love seeing as much as possible in the time I have. My wife is more inclined to sit for a few days on a beach! Perhaps we will stay with you on our next trip?
If you stay with us, we can either provide you with privacy, or we are willing to interact and help guide you to the best experience you can have in Philly! Please ask us if you need any advice while you are staying here.
