About the property

Nicely designed, private-apartment that helps you feel at home & comfortably away while traveling. Here you will have a warm, nice, clean & modern environment with nice lighting, private space & easy access to all of Philadelphia. Short or Long Stay this place is for you. We’ve equipped the apartment with everything you need and outside you can walk down the block to a nice park for some outside time and nature.

If your visiting Philadelphia for work or pleasure, short or long term having a nice place to call home is important. We are conveniently located with plenty of restaurants and lounges directly in the next neighborhood of Fishtown or Northern Liberties all only 3-5 minutes away or two subway stops.

Private 2 Bedroom Bright, Clean and Sunny Apartment. Each bedroom is private with its own doorway, closet space, windows for fresh air and self-controlled heating. We have a nice fully ceramic bathroom with shower and tub. Very clean and nice. Full kitchen is ready for use with all pots, pans, cooking utensils, microwave, fridge, freezer, stove/oven, toaster, coffee maker and everything else you may need.

Our common area is quaint with a nice two-seat high table and chairs, and a sofa sleeper couch facing a flat screen TV. A nice place to relax before exploring the City of Philadelphia.

This is an Inner-City Neighborhood called Norris Square (named after the park down the block) and the area is under major transition. We have a mixture of local residents and many new Millennials’ moving into the area. You will see that with all the construction and development taking place all around even directly across the street. The residents on this block have been here for years and its only 8-12 minutes by subway to get to Center City and Historical points. This is a great example of a before and after area taking place right in front of your eyes.

The subway is located behind the property at York Dauphin St and there is another station called “Berks Street” on the Market Frankford Line only a few blocks from the apartment (We recommend the Berks St station). You can board the subway and in 2-stops you will be in Fishtown & Northern Liberties which all have Restaurants, shops, bars & lounges. These two neighborhoods have an incredible array of nightlife and social spots. 4-Stops from the apartment you will be at the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, The Constitution Center, and Center City. You can also Uber for $8-12 depending. If you drive Parking is free and there is normally street parking all day with no Meters or time restrictions.

About Robert

I'm passionate about the life I lead and love sharing my experiences or resources with all I come in contact with. God is great to me. I'm a seasoned professional host with more then 4 years experience in the Airbnb industry and 20+ in travel and tourism. Yet I enjoy the personal touches offered by Airbnb that keep hosting fun and interesting.

I try to add a personal touch to my units and help you enjoy a local feel when visiting. I put a lot of effort into the Guidebook so make sure you use it when visiting the City. It really helps make your experience a better one.

If you are visiting my place feel free to tell me what interests you and if I know of something that will help make your trip a greater experience I will gladly share it. I also enjoy traveling with 20+ countries visited in the past 4 years. So If I am traveling to your City or Country, Id love some tips as well.

Hosting is my business and we are not perfect at it. Yet I am open to any suggestions and always available to assist you at any of my places if you need me. I try to add some personal touches to your trip. Hope we get to meet.


My Life Motto "Palante" is Spanish for Forward-Onward!

Why Robert chose Norris Square

This is a great new apartment designed for comfort, style and convenience. Perfectly located minutes from Center City, by 1 block from the subway, a park one block away and supermarket. This is a great place for your visit to Philadelphia.

What makes this apartment unique

Nestled in an emerging area of Norris Square Philadelphia. You will experience a true gentrification of a Philadelphia neighborhood. You will see many projects taking place all around while still experiencing some of the local charm that makes Philly Philly.
