Entire 2,600 sq ft house rental. Near Dorney Park, NYC, Bethlehem, Muskifest, Philly, Blue Mtn, hiking, PPL Center, hip restaurants+bars with a highly walkable diverse downtown right outside the door. Eclectic art filled interior including the most famous private bathroom in Atown, home theater, large wood burning fireplace, sunny kitchen, back patio w/fountain+fire pit, app controlled lighting, Victorian details. Great for quick get aways. Big city cool w/out big city prices. Say no to normal.

Le logement

Featured in the music video by the band Dentist (video coming Halloween '17, shot 9/9/17), Lehigh Valley Live's "Cool Spaces" column and 3 times on the Old Allentown historic district house tour, this house has original Victorian details outside and in. It was built in 1873, but is filled with local modern art and modern bathrooms and kitchen. This is no mere crash pad, nor cute or quaint, it's a destination in and of itself to come hang out in and interact with.
You want something? Ask, I'll do my best to make it happen. In house massage service (no happy ending, but an unhappy one when you have to check out), live mellow music in the living room, Phantoms hockey tickets, Iron Pigs baseball tickets, helicopter ride (not cheap, but fuckin' cool). Give me some lead time on those, all are extras. You can also roast your own coffee to take home (if you have a grinder), I'll throw that one in for zilch. Hit me w/anything you can think of, my job's to make you damn happy.
Home of the Pay-It-Forward-Beer-Stash.
Great for a couple's getaway or to spend time w/friends somewhere fun+funky.
If you want the usual, this probably ain't the place for you.

Accès des voyageurs

I'll be gone. The entire house except the attic is open. Washer/dryer in the basement as well as free weights are available for use. There's two closets free for your stuff, another for coats and jackets under the stairs.
Go ahead and use the drum set, you won't disturb anyone.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I stay about 10 minutes away when the house is rented, but I'll be available as much as you'd like during your visit to help w/advice, directions, any technical problems or to discuss the house history and its art contents or just hang out if we hit it off. I work days, but can check texts frequently. I'm on call 24 hours if need be.
I'll cop to being a blabbermouth, so I'm used to being told to shut it.

Autres remarques

The Funk House welcomes EVERYONE from all communities and cultures.
I'm a fan of colorful language, so don't hold back on my behalf.
There's a lot of technical crap, so a quick initial walk-through is required, this place ain't normal.
The entry to the shower is a bit tight and there's windows w/no curtains.
The cooktop is electric, but fast to heat up, please keep an eye on your grub.
There's no microwave, microwaves have no soul. No dishwasher either, I'm a minimalist. Besides, there's a passel of restaurants right out the door.

When you're not living here I do, this is my home, please keep that in mind.
Do NOT shift or take the rock off the table (it'll make sense when you're here).
Please don't blow out the house speakers, they kick pretty much ass w/out gettin' nuts.
If thou takest from the Pay It Forward Beer Stash then thou shall contributeth thereto in the form of beer. Not cash. Preferably good/interesting shit.
There's no need to wad up the bedding when you leave, unless you enjoy that for some reason, I already know you've slept in the bed.
Entrance to shower is narrow because of the full size urinal.

I cannot say enough about this host and this space! Everything is so clean and organized, but funky and eclectic! Mike is just amazing.... he knows everything about his town. He took us to a hockey meet and greet and toured us around downtown Allentown. Allentown is awesome! We had no idea! If you plan on staying near New York and want a truly unique experience then this Airbnb is a MUST! I can truly say we were sad to leave and we already miss you Mike! Hopefully.... soon...we'll be back!

I'm a little teary, nothing squirting out, just getting a little moist at seeing the house w/out you folks in it. At least the curbs are safe from Savannah for the foreseeable future.

Guys....this is legitimately the coolest AirBnB I've ever stayed in. The space is eclectic and funky and full of great conversation pieces. Mike is an amazing host. He is super responsive, had the place ready early for us, and even had chilled wine for our arrival! There are great little touches everywhere. For instance, one of the bathroom lockers was packed with toiletries and items you may have forgotten to pack. Amenities were super cool. All in all, you MUST check out this place!

A-town funk going to give it to you! True to description. This is not you average airbnb. Beautiful old home with eccentric fixings. Mike was a great host, thoughtful and courteous. Made sure we were comfortable with the cool digs. Perfect place to have fun with your friends and that's exactly what we did.

So my film crew and I were looking for a place to stay while shooting for a music video and my Director came across the Downtown Atown Funk! We all immediately knew where we were staying! After speaking with Mike, the owner, we knew that we were in great hands. So much so, Mike allowed us to film part of the music video in his house! We actually re-wrote the location we were originally to shoot in and wrote in the house! The house itself has the perfect amount of eclecticism and every room has its own dimension and reality. If you’re looking for a place to stay in PA, definitely book with Mike! Keep an eye our for the music video of “The Latter” by the band Dentist. BTS write up: (URL HIDDEN)

Airbnb helps me pay the bills by renting my home. More importantly it lets me meet really, really cool people like Greg and the rest of the Hologram Visuals crew. Which is much more important to me than money. There's a shoot write up on their website w/more pics than I'd posted.

Music, art, conversation, travel. I like being engaged w/life. And I think normal is boring.
