Kate seems like a caring host, although we didn’t have a chance to meet. Her place is conveniently located on a gritty block in the Italian Market area of south Philly. The house could be comfortable if it were properly ‘deep” cleaned, some basic kitchen utensils were added and m…

Response from Kate:
Thanks Truman! That is great advice! I will take that all into consideration as I move forward! For potential guests - I tried to make this clear in my description but it may be worth restating, and of course if you have questions, please let me know! My intention with airbnb beyond making a few extra dollars is I want to share my space with travelers who need a reasonable place to stay (the whole house when I'm gone, a room when I'm here). I have had a mixed bunch of guests and reviews - in early December I had a group that left vomit in a set of bedsheets, ripped a lamp shade/broke a lamp, lost the key, unplugged the fridge (I had to throw out all the food) and I am still finding ping pong balls all over the house (I assume... beer pong?). And then, of course, there are people who aren't quite satisfied with other aspects, including cleanliness, the street view, a hallway floor that slants, water pressure, etc. :) So, to be clear and upfront... this is my family home - it meets my kids' and my needs in terms of furniture and kitchen items. I love staying at a low-key airbnb when I travel with them and so I thought I would open my place for people looking to do the same. I don't necessarily provide food, etc. but you're welcome to whatever is in the house! It certainly isn't a hotel but I'm happy to share the living space with whoever needs it. In a word or two, I am hopeful to get folks looking for a place to stay who will also leave the place as I found it - put the furniture back, clean out coffee makers, replace bathroom items and hangers, strip the beds, etc. I am open to helping folks with extras - I can be flexible with check in and check out, offer rides to the train/airport when available, make sure there are certain items available (i.e. a long term guest asked for an room humidifier and so I got that for him...) - as long as the guests are flexible with our space! Thanks again, Truman, and browsing folks - check in with me with questions or concerns!

Kate's place is a great location and a great value. As a Philly native who was in town for a reunion, it was a great spot for me and my family. We were the first family to rent the whole place, so there were a few kinks to work out, but Kate was very reachable and helped us figur…

Kate is an incredibly responsive and caring host. The house is terrific, though not for people who don't enjoy cats - the cats are very sweet but do carry an odor. Otherwise, we had a great time!

Kate is very responsive and goes out of her way to make sure that you are situated at her home. Unlike some other hosts that you might never meet, I felt I could really rely on her if anything had happened. The apartment is a very short walk to the Italian Market, the Vietnamese…

Kate was a wonderful host. She was extremely helpful, kind and friendly. The entire time Kate wanted to make sure we had everything we needed (towels, blankets etc) while also giving us direction around the city for us noobies. She also had delicious restaurant reccomendations. D…
