Need a lovely, naturally-lit & quiet space to stay? A place with immediate access to great food, public transit and easy parking? You got it. LGBTQ-friendly, pet-free household in the heart of West Philly/Clark Park. 4th floor of a classic West Philly building, right off a bustling avenue featuring many cafes, restaurants, local bars, yoga studios and independent book shops. Buses and trolleys caught just off our doorstep can get you into downtown Philly in < 15 minutes!

Host is a PA REALTOR.

The space

Our apartment is an artistically crafted space with hardwood floors, beautiful natural lighting and a warm, communal vibe. We are in the heart of West Philly/Clark Park, surrounded by phenomenal local options at an easier pace than Center City, while still an easy, short trolley ride from downtown. This bedroom listed is a large, quiet room filled with artwork. It features a bed with a luxurious mattress topped with memory foam, making for an easy night's sleep.

Guest access

In addition to your own room, as our guest you will have full access to the shared kitchen (feel free to store food in the fridge and cabinets!), dining area, living room, and the shared guest bathroom. Spaces may be shared with hosts and 1-2 other guests. Coin-operated laundry facilities on the basement level are also available to guests. Street parking is free, time-unlimited and usually very easy to find within 1 block of our home. The apartment has been kept pet-free and all sheets are washed with unscented detergent, to support guests with allergies.

Interaction with guests

In addition to an initial orientation to the space and the neighborhood, we are available in person or via text to answer questions that may arise. We are happy to chat and comfortably share the space, but will otherwise give you lots of space to do your own thing.

Other things to note

We are a household of two queer, fun-loving, adventure-oriented women. We've created a space that is welcoming of people of all sorts of genders, sexualities, races & ethnicities, worldviews, etc, and we ask that guests be respectful of us and our identities in return. We look forward to meeting you!

The room is very comfortable and has a lot of space. Gavin has taken a lot of effort in making the most of your stay in Philly by having maps and brochures of things to do in Philadelphia by the desk. The place is very close to public transportation with plenty of restaurants nearby.

Lovely, nice apartment in West Philly. The Trolley Station is right beside the house, which will take you within 15 min into the city center. There's really no need to stay in an expensive hotel in the city center. Em and Gavin are great hosts and gave me a lot of recommendations. I felt very welcome. The room is very big and the apartment was very clean

This was a 5-star experience from booking to check-out. Gavin and Em were fantastic hosts. They checked-in with me 24 hours before my checkin to coordinate and make the process seamless. The I arrived they both greeted me, gave me an orientation to their fabulous space and then offered me suggestions for my trip (dinner and running routes). The space is wonderful and they clearly have great taste!!!! Thanks for a wonderful AirBnB experience!

Great stay; Em and Gavin were lovely and welcoming hosts. The space was artfully decorated. The room was spacious with a comfortable queen sized bed (on the firmer side) and AC unit. Parking in the street was easy to find and I felt safe in the surrounding area. Would definitely stay again!

I have wanderlust at its finest. I live to experience and work to travel.

The space is hosted by me and my partner Em. We are two queer women who love traveling, adventures and the outdoors. I am a REALTOR and designer and Em is in Grad school.
