Recent Philadelphia & Its Countryside reviews

  • Beautiful House, Great Manayunk Location

    "I miss this house! I had an extended stay in this house, and it is absolutely perfect for this. The house is furnished gorgeously with an incredible kitchen. The appliances were great (great wine fridge and top of the line oven) which made cooking in this house very enjoyable. The house is very large... Two large queen beds and many extra rooms with futons and couches. The master suite is very nice... Very large space with beautiful glass shower and walk in closet. One of my favorite parts of the house was the outdoor area. Most rentals (and most houses) in Philly do not have outdoor space. The covered porch and garden were beautiful while I was there in the summer. I have no complaints about the house whatsoever. I would NOT recommend this house for people who have difficulty with stairs. The house is the classic Philly brownstone, three floor style with very steep stairs and lots of them. There's no banister on the first floor stairs, so be careful with small kids. But the absence of a banister keeps the space nice and open. As far as the area, Manayunk is a great place to visit and live. Main Street, which is just a short walk away, had some of the best cuisine and shopping I've seen. The house is located near the Manayunk Brewing Company end of Main Street. Gorgeous, lively area. Although it is not in Center City, the train is easily accessible (9 min walk to Wissahickon train station). Driving from this area into the city can be awful depending on the time of day... 76 is the only real way into the city, and AVOID THIS during rush hours. But as anyone who knows Philly knows, 76 is part of the Philly traffic experience. Overall my stay was wonderful."

I love this place and hope to rent it again. The place is beautiful and true to the pictures. Ms. Inez again I will like to Thank you."

  • Super-relaxing home away from home!

    "This house was perfect for the three generations of our family. We had grand plans to visit nearby towns, drive in to Philadelphia, and see the sights. But we had so much fun on the river that we really didn't want to leave! Joan's gorgeous home was comfortable and offered every amenity imaginable. We took full advantage of most of the perks, including eating on the spacious deck for most meals, hanging out on the deck down by the river, kayaking and canoeing, sitting under the stars by the fire pit, taking long walks and runs on the canal tow path, and more. The house is beautifully appointed (the pictures don't do it justice) and very comfortable. The kitchen is a foodie's dream! And the views are simply stunning. Joan was so nice to work with and took care of our every need. We definitely hope to be back!"

  • Perfect location for bikers

    "We came to Philadelphia with our bikes and the Manayunk Terrace was a perfect location for us. The apartment is just a few streets up from the Schuylkill River Trail - which runs 13 kms to downtown and 30 kms in the other direction to Valley Forge. We found Manayunk to be interesting, friendly and safe. There's a great neighbourhood pub just kitty corner called the Eagle Tavern. There are not full kitchen facilities in the studio apartment but we managed to create light meals (thanks to Joan for the skillet) for three nights and ate out for two others. Yes, parking seemed to be a bit scarce but since we only used our bikes it was not an issue. Overall, a five star stay due to location, the state of the accommodation and value."
