Solid wood furniture and luxurious linens (usually Ralph Lauren) make this a charming oasis.

Le logement

When a more luxurious AirBnb experience is your goal...

A whole-floor oasis atop our large and sunny row home, the Hero's Castle is nearly 800 square feet across three rooms, warmly and comfortably furnished. The 3rd floor includes your bright and airy bedroom, with a queen-sized deluxe memory foam mattress, 400+ CT 100% cotton sheets, and large, fluffy 100% cotton towels; a large private bathroom; a private sitting room with an armchair, a table for working or sharing meals, and a small book collection; and a west-facing balcony the width of the house. The bedroom door locks with a key.

--- Many Private Room AirBnbs come with a shared bathroom - Hero's Castle gives you a fully private 3rd Floor, including private bathroom, for a single room price, with all the convenience and space of a whole house! ---

Your space, and the rest of the house, includes:

- blond hardwood floors + high ceilings
- high quality furniture, linens, and amenities
- tropical and traditional houseplants
- lots of complimentary coffees and teas in the kitchen
- and unusual details from around the world.

Gated parking behind the house is FREE with your booking! Responsible use of the kitchen is welcome.

In your suite will be

- bottles of water
- luxury linens
- a hand-sewn quilt from Lancaster County, PA
- and thoughtfully selected toiletries
(we always aim to have eco-conscious and chem-free options + special items like dry shampoo, makeup remover, body lotion and hand cream, plus we're rotating in handmade body products from responsible Etsy shops!)

Philadelphia is the City of Brotherly Love, and since its Quaker days has been known for tolerance and inclusion - one of the reasons we love it! In that spirit, our commitment to hosting in a space free of discrimination is absolute - whether or not we look the same or have different lives, feel welcome. :) If sharing the house with different kinds of folks doesn't fit your style, we're sure you'll find an AirBnb that does.

Accès des voyageurs

Besides the third floor, guests are welcome to use

- the kitchen
- ground floor living and dining rooms
- downstairs powder room
- and back yard

The second floor includes another guest room and our room, both private areas.

You'll find books, magazines, games and puzzles in the living room - you're welcome to hang out and enjoy them there, or take them to your room and bring them back to the living room later!

NOTE FOR AUTUMN: You can easily take the Trolley along Girard Avenue to visit the Eastern State Penitentiary, one of Philadelphia's creepiest attractions (and one of the East Coast's best Haunted Houses during the fall months)! Tickets recommended in advance for weekend nights in October.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We'll generally either be out or working from home during your stay, so we're happy to answer questions, but we'll be out of your way.

We make excellent restaurant recommendations, and are travel enthusiasts - if you're a big traveler, we'll probably really get along! My husband speaks German and Mandarin, and I speak some (limited) French and Spanish.

Laundry is done by Wash Cycle, an eco-conscious laundry service that delivers by bicycle; their detergents are scent-free. When we're doing laundry ourselves, we generally use detergent with a mild scent.

Nous n'avons pas rencontrer nos hôtes mais les explications étaient claires et nous n'avons rencontré aucunes difficultes particulières. La maison est grande, les chambres et les espaces de vies sont spacieux également. À quelques arrêts de métro du centre ville et à 2min à pied de l'arrêt de métro, la maison est située à proximité de bars et magasins divers.

We booked the place at the last minute but Kate and Alex were very responsive. Their house is really spacious and had everything we needed. The bedroom has its own bathroom, it was all very comfy, clean and spacious. We did not have the chance to meet our hosts because of our short stay in Philadelphia, but we had a lot of exchanges through airbnb messenger. The place is located 5 minutes from a train station but we walked to the old city in about 35-40 minutes and came back with a taxi for $8. We recommend!

Kate et son mari nous ont accueilli devant leur maison, ils étaient très agréables et gentils. Ils nous ont expliqué tout le fonctionnement de leur maison. La maison est magnifique, spacieuse et proche de toutes commodités (métro situé à 2 minutes à pied). Je recommande vivement ce logement.

We love traveling and understanding how things work (our work involves manufacturing). Also plants - we'll tell you all about our plants, but only if you're interested. :) We're also big fans of history, philosophy, theater and Star Trek. Since we used to live in NYC, we now appreciate large, airy, uncluttered rooms, so that's what you'll get when you're our guest! We love meeting new people, so AirBnB is great for us. Sarah started out using her middle name, Kate, on AirBnb, but recently switched back to using Sarah to avoid confusion.
