Philadelphia townhome description

Located in the heart of the city, this light-filled and roomy townhouse boasts a beautiful garden, eat-in kitchen, three queen beds & a king, two and a half baths, & is just 10 minutes from Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Rittenhouse Square, & much more!

Welcome to our wonderful townhouse right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia! Located in a peaceful residential neighborhood - two blocks from three different parks with playgrounds, a Whole Foods, restaurants, and transportation - you are also steps away from everything this beautiful city has to offer! Our home is two blocks away from South Street, which is bustling with stores and restaurants; a 10 minute walk to the Kimmel Center, Wilma Theater, the Italian Market, Liberty Bell, Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square Park, Independence Hall, 13th street's Restaurant Row, and more! The location is unbeatable, yet inside you will simply feel at home in a peaceful and cozy setting.

Walk into our home's main floor, and you'll find a big, comfortable sofa and armchair, flat screen television, and a chaise by the garden which is our favorite spot for curling up and reading, while looking out onto the beautiful green space just beyond the wall of windows. This space is perfect for game nights, relaxing, reading, or watching a bit of TV after exploring Philadelphia.

Head down the back steps into the eat-in-kitchen area, where you'll find an extendable dining table that can seat 6-10 guests comfortably - perfect for having the whole family sit together for meals after a day of sightseeing and exploring our wonderful city. The kitchen is fully stocked and recently renovated, so you'll have an easy time preparing meals during your stay in Philly. Feel free to use the stove, microwave, oven, electric kettle, coffee maker, or toaster during your visit; we also supply some cooking necessities, as well as our favorite coffees & teas to help you get a strong start on your sightseeing in the morning! If you have specific dietary needs or requests, please let us know when making your reservation.

Past the kitchen, you'll find a convenient powder room which was recently renovated, as well as the utility room with the washer/dryer. Detergent, fabric softener, and an iron are provided for your convenience.

On the second floor you'll find the 'Argentine Room,' with an earthy and warm feel. This room has a deliciously comfy Queen Size Bed, a dresser and large closet to make unpacking easy, and a huge 8 foot long window looking onto the garden below.

Next to this bedroom you'll find a full bath, equipped with a tub and shower. Toiletries and towels are provided to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible.

Also on this floor is the sweet and cozy library, full of books for you to borrow and read during your visit, an armchair, and sofa. This is another great spot for hanging out when you're relaxing in the house, and can also be used as a fourth bedroom. The sofa here is also a pull-out Queen Size bed, which is very comfortable.

On the top floor, you'll find the last two bedrooms and bathroom. In the back of the house is our '1776 Room,' with a wonderful, luxurious king size bed, soothing earthy colors, and a fun historic map of Philadelphia. Down the hall is the 'Mod Room,' with another comfortable Queen Size bed, crisp white linens, and a soothing palette. Both rooms have humongous 8ft windows, and plenty of storage. Between the two bedrooms is a recently renovated beautiful full bath, also with a full tub and shower.

A free wireless internet connection is available throughout. Parking for one car in a private lot behind the house is also available for an extra $50 per week.

A separate rental agreement between the Guest and Host, which summarizes the agreed upon dates, the rental fee paid to HomeAway/VRBO, and general conditions about renting the apartment, including the House Rules that appear under this listing, will be sent to the Guest for review and signature prior to check-in.

There is a $150 professional cleaning fee per stay in order to help defray the costs of cleaning and preparing the home for the next guest.

(Prices may also vary during holidays, weekends, and special events, so please check the calendar, which is updated consistently, or contact us with your specific dates.)

Please Note: If you do choose to inquire or submit a reservation request, we require a phone call to determine whether or not our home is a good fit for you in your travels, and we will coordinate a time to speak with you at our and your earliest convenience. Our preference is to host families and small companies and we require that the person who makes the booking stay throughout the reservation period.

                      About: We are a young couple living in Center City Philadelphia after falling in love with the city, uprooting ourselves, and moving here from New York City, where we both grew up. We are former teachers who are now small business owners. We love to travel and explore, and are part of this community in order to make that dream possible! We are thoughtful, detail-oriented, caring people, and we know you will feel comfortable as soon as you step into our property.
