We support local business and partner with the best & our favorites in the area, including:
Patty @ Three Trees Framing / 722 S 4th Street has a gift for art & set up our entire home. Hands down, Patty is a pro. May we never make a decor decision without her again!
We are also thrilled to partner with Ginger, local business owner at Holistic Home/Soap Box on 6th just south of South Street. Ginger, owner, is a perfectionist!
Finally, the short list also includes:
Cohen's Hardware The Bean (Coffeeshop) Too many to list. . . ask for our guide!
Our home is part of Washington Square West, and it borders Society Hill and Queen Village. There is never-ending activity for adults and kids alike, along with full-service businesses to help support your itinerary. You will be one block from South St., a few blocks from several grocery stories, a short walk from Rittenhouse and Old City for night life and entertainment. Our home is a few blocks from 'restaurant row' and dozens of fantastic eating establishments.
You will be at the epicenter of many attractions: Independence Mall, the Constitution Center and the whole historic shebang is only a few blocks walk. If you want a handsome cab to take you around the city, you can pick up a horse-drawn carriage near Independence Hall! If it's raining, Septa can get you places along with Phlash, The Big Bus, or even those duck boats - we won't judge you.
Culture, musical and theater scene is a short walk-- Kimmel Center, Forrest Theater, Wilma, Merriam, TLA (yes, it totally counts), and a number of spots that feature Jazz -- Chris' Jazz, scattered spots like Tuesday night at Milkboy.
Of course, there's things here that you just can't find anywhere else: The Mudder Museum and the Barnes Museum, the Rosenbach for old book enthusiasts--original copies of Dracula and Don Quixote!
There is nearby fun for kids as well, Franklin Institute, Franklin Square, Please Touch Museum, more parks than can easily be counted, all walkable or, at most, a token by bus.
Then -- my personal favorite -- there's events on the cheap or even free. An afternoon with ice-cream at Franklin Fountain. Walking tours -- event tours, science tours, ghost tours. Improv studios with nightly open shows. More coffee shops per square foot than you thought possible.
Philadelphia is a known foodie and beer-drinkers' paradise. We'll leave you to travel mags and to Yelp to explore the best of the area, but will happily offer our humble opinions.
Finally, there's bike trails, hiking and walking. Philly has something for everyone and we can help make recommendations if you're not sure, so just ask!
Crib, booster seat & additional childproofing is available. Please ask for our standard child-proofing efforts that include: tamper-resistant outlets, secured dressers and bureaus, mounted gates on request. ...moreless

About the owner: We work, live, met and fell in love in Philadelphia. Not in that order :)
More interesting than us is our energetic two-year-old. Our little one loves tumble class, pouring water (or any liquid, really) from one cup into another cup, counting pennies. She loves her friends. Hates her big-girl bed, gates, going to sleep without her binky.
We've managed property for several years, but we are just starting our experience with VRBO. So far, we love it! Thanks to everyone who has reached out so far, and to those we have yet to meet :)
Have I mentioned that I love to get phone calls?
Why the Owner Chose Philadelphia: We're central to the hub of Philadelphia, and still situated on a relatively quiet street.
We patronize local business and partner with Ginger at Holistic Home LLC to support our cleaning needs. She's a perfectionist and is amazing at what she does.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: We love this city & believe that if you don't already, you will too :)
