 About Your Hosts

Taiye & Lola are Nigerian-American twin sisters and co-founders of The T.L. Hospitality Group, LLC DBA Urbanity Lush, an award-winning Philadelphia travel, experiences & hospitality-lifestyle brand.

At the start of the pandemic, they reimagined how to deliver the same warm,  authentic and meaningful hospitality they have become known for as Airbnb hosts. Still, this time with a social purpose in mind–to use hospitality to help break down cultural and racial barriers that keep us from celebrating our diversity as individuals and producing the empathy, understanding, and kindness necessary to grow cultural allies we need to change our world for the better.

Why Urbanity Lush?

Through the art of hosting curated Airbnb stays, multi-cultural experiences, creating dialog
and learning from others – we find ourselves and the appreciation for differences.

Connecting Others

We recognize that people are feeling increasingly disconnected, invisible, and looking to connect with the cultures and the people around them.

Breaking Barriers

Our goal is to use curated Airbnb stays digital and online experiences to break down barriers and help people connect, understand and take delight in each other and the cultural norms and values of others.

Shared Experiences

We desire a community of shared experiences that live on for a lifetime. We want to open a door to understanding other cultures that builds a kinder and empathetic world.

Safe Exploration

We imagine our brand would be a gathering place for lovers of travel, hospitality and culture, but also a place for travel and cultural novels who are looking for a safe space to explore the other.

Impact Storytelling

In creating such a space, we hope to birth what we call a third culture, rooted in shared stories that grow kinder and more caring people around the world. Ready to show up as race and cultural allies for one another.

Abandon Bias

Our goal is to give people a safe place to explore their racial and cultural bias without fear of judgment.

Lush Online Experiences
