  • 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."

  • Back in Time

    "Our family of 7 adults spent 3 nights at Plumb Nilly in February so we weren't able to take advantage of the pool, but a few of us did use the lighted tennis courts the first evening. Then the weather turned cold. But that made us appreciate the fireplace in one of the sitting rooms even more. We gathered there after supper each night to enjoy the cozy space. Everyone said their beds were comfortable. I can especially vouch for the Master Bedroom Bed--the most comfortable I've ever had away from home. We found everything we needed to cook supper one night--finding the fish poaching pan had my son buying a whole fish at Reading Market and preparing it for us. Every morning I headed for the kitchen to make coffee and sit in the quaint dining room gazing out the window just absorbing all the history that must have taken place in this lovely home. Plumb Nilly is only 30 minutes from downtown Philly, so we went into town both days to enjoy Reading Market and The City Tavern along with several of the museums."

  • Great location for business traveler and family sightseeing

    "My family of six stayed for five nights (kids ages 5-14). Condo was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. There are basically two big rooms (kitchen and bedroom). Its the sort of arrangement that either brings your family together or drives you crazy. It worked for us. Great location to walk to city center including Philadelphia Convention Center and all historical sites (e.g. Liberty Bell, Constitution Hall, Independence Hall). Endless variety of dining options. A maritime museum is also nearby. Bring your walking shoes! Condo was clean and in a nice section of town. My wife and kids felt very comfortable venturing out on their own while I was at the conference center. Also conveinient was the grocery stores very close by (including a Whole Foods store). Note to business traveler: heard stories from others of overbooked hotels and price gouging in Philly. Apparently the Convention Center capacity exceeds Philly's hotel capacity. This condo is a great alternative to avoid that whole ordeal."

  • Convnetion in Philly

    "This home was very comfortable and about a block's walk to the subway. Parking was a little crazy at night, but always found a parking spot within a block or two. We were there mainly for the convention, but the history in the city was amazing. And it felt so good to come home to a place that felt like home rather than a hotel room. Restaurants were very pricy so we ate at home a lot and everything we needed to prepare meals was there; we just needed to buy the food. We has an awesome stay."

Philadelphia Travel Tips

Philadelphia Vacation Rentals Can Help Make History Come Alive

Philadelphia is immersed in a rich and storied history. It founded in 1682 by William Penn who named his colony Pennsylvania and planned the city now known as Philadelphia, meaning "City of Brotherly Love." Imagine discovering this history-rich city from the central base of one of any number of VRBO.com Philadelphia vacation rentals. You'll be just minutes from such attractions as the site of the signing of the U.S. Constitution or the famous Liberty Bell.

A Wonderful Alternative to Hotels

VRBO.com lodging found at Philadelphia resorts provide a wonderful and luxurious alternative to a traditional hotel stay. You'll have all the comforts and privacy of home while enjoying all the attractions and activities within the Philadelphia area. You'll absolutely love the multiple bedrooms and private kitchen offered by these VRBO.com accommodations; and don't overlook the rentals that come with amenities such as private yards or patios, or maybe even a private hot tub or Jacuzzi.

Accommodations that Are Conveniently Located

Your visit to Philadelphia, from centrally located Philadelphia area condos, homes, or town homes, can include any number of historic sites. Don't miss Valley Forge or other sites that represent some of America's most important meeting places, as well as historically significant battles. In additional to the history-filled attractions, Philadelphia boasts a wealth of other attractions. Check out an Andrew Wyeth exhibit and the Brandywine Valley, or enjoy a shopping adventure.
