About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

If you are looking for luxury and much much more than a hotel room then you have found it. This high end apartment is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a traditional 3 story Row House that's over 150 years old. It has all the bells and whistles of any new construction but with the bones and structure of old Philadelphia. With over 300 different stores and restaurants within a 5 block radius, it doesn't come more perfect Philadelphia than this. Located over the oldest Tattoo Studio in the district, this apartment aims to please with class, style and an artistic flare that you will find no other place.

Walk up the first flight of stairs to the 2nd floor and you enter the living room and kitchen area. The kitchen is amazing, it has granite counter tops with full granite back splashes. All upgraded stainless steel appliances from the Thermador Gas stove to the Bosch Dishwasher, a convection oven/microwave and full sized refrigerator. There is breakfast counter/ bar area that opens to the living room and a separate built in dining area. The kitchen has exposed brick though out and hardwood floors to go though out the kitchen and into the living room.

The living room has a big beautiful bay window with an enormous piece of stained glass that is over a 100 years old. There is a beautiful architectural columns and all custom built furniture through out. There is a large screened TV with a Bose surround sound, DVD and VCR. There are two different pull out sofa beds on this living room level. One is a traditional sleeper sofa that you would imagine that pulls out to a full sized bed.

The other is a super comfy sofa also pulls out to an upgraded queen sized bed. This is not just any kind of pull out bed either. This is the best and most comfortable sleeper sofa money could buy. It's from American leather and it has a tempur pedic mattress. No bars, no coils and no paper thin mattress to hurt your back.

So if you are two couples traveling together, neither couple will get the short end of the stick when it comes to sleeping comfort

Walk up the 2nd staircase and into the master bedroom and master bathroom. The master bathroom is unbelievable. There is a gorgeous pedestal sink, a stand up shower with multiple body sprayers and a triangle shaped Jacuzzi hot tub that's big enough for two. There is dim-able lights and also a TV in this bathroom, in case you like a little entertainment with your bubbles and long hot soak.

The master bedroom is just that, built for a master, it is not small by any measure and takes up the same amount of space as the living room bellow it. There is a queen sized heavenly bed that not only has an upgraded mattress but upgraded plush pillows and high thread count linens to go with it. There is a Victorian ladies vanity table and two separate closets, both with double doors. Did I mention the massage chair??

If you are looking for all the high end comforts of home and way more room for entertaining with family and friends then you have found the place to call home while visiting the historic city of Philadelphia.

Perfect choice!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay if you are visiting Philly. The location is perfect for visiting historical sites or trying new dining venues. The apartment had everything we needed & was exceptionally clean & comfortable. I would definitely recommend this property if you are visiting the city of "Brotherly Love".

Sophisticated but homey apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this apartment. it was just a great mix of all the things you want for a great vacation. Quirky, eclectic neighborhood, full of interesting shops and people, just a few, very walkable blocks from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. (We're both 67. It was not too far for us to walk and we enjoyed the historic neighborhood homes we passed.). An ice cream and candy store is across the street. There's a grocery store next door and another within a couple of blocks. We especially enjoyed a little Italian restaurant around the corner called Gnocchi. Then, don't let the fact that this apartment is over a tattoo parlor fool you. The decor is sophisticated and high tech, but also very comfortable. A great, eclectic mix. Everything you need to cook, enjoy a nice glass of wine, or host a dinner for friends. Literally three televisions; one of them over a jetted tub big enough for two. The apartment is on the second and third floors. The stairs did not present a problem for us, but if climbing stairs is an issue, then this is probably not the place for you. Also, this is in a very popular, busy area of the city. The noise from the street at night was sometimes noticeable on the weekend. We just saw it as part of the ambience of the area, but if you're looking for a very quiet, residential neighborhood, this may not work for you. We, however, loved it. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Anna, for a wonderful stay in Philadelphia!

Located just steps from South Street and local attractions, the apt & location are ideal for visiting Philly! We found the apt to be as pictured....beautiful and clean. My only concern for someone would be the stairs. If someone is unable to climb steps they may find coming and going, along with getting to the top floor of the apt difficult. I've had one knee replaced and at the time of this post had another scheduled in a few days and I was able to come and go without a problem (though going down the steps backwards was easlier!). My wife loved the tub and the walk in shower is very nice! The apt is on a busy street, so it can get noisy at times. I suggest you just turn the fans on high, or bring ear plugs. It wasn't that bad though.. Kate was very helpful during our stay!

Regarding parking....we scored free parking during our whole stay. I suggest you park along the sidewalk on the far side of Bainbridge St. There is a sign that says something about street cleaning on the 1st/3rd Tuesday of each month, but locals assured us to ignore it. We did and everything was fine! If you have to you can pay ($20) for one night in the parking lot off of Bainbridge St (if you stand at the market on the corner and look left you should see a lot across the street on the far side) so you can move it early the next morning to free parking. Make sure you park along the sidewalk though. If you plan to drive daily this may not work for you. We parked the car and took Uber when needed during our stay. Overall, we walked everywhere. Independence Hall & other sites similar are a short 15-20 min walk. We even walked to and from Reading Terimal Market/Center City. The sites and sounds of the city distracted from the walk its self making it shorter than what it really was.

RE: South name it you can probably find especially! I suggest you walk down South Street (turn right at the corner) towards Penn's Landing and Spruce Harbor Park (15 min). Google Spruce Harbor Park if you haven't heard of it to see what attractions are there. Kids & adults will enjoy it! If you are going to a ball game you will need to Uber/Lyft or drive. Uber cost us under $15 for 3 people. Also, there is a small market next door on the corner, or you can walk a few blocks to an ACME grocery store. A Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts are just around the corner from the apt, too.

Overall, if you want to truly feel the pulse of Philly then you must stay here!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the opening letter t0 the checkout was a breeze and set a fabulous tone for the trip. Kate organized everything perfectly for our arrival! And best of all we met Anna as well upon arrival and instantly knew we had picked the right place to stay. Eclectic and well appointed house in a great fun neighborhood. Already planning a return trip! Bed was comfortable and tub and shower make an added plus! This is a huge house with tons of open space you don't find often in a city like philly.

Fun neighborhood with lots of local options

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay! Friendly and easy check in. Very clean and cozy with some really funky decor we all enjoyed (the recycled parts guy brought many debates of who/what it was and the magnetic dart board was a great pastime for the kids in the morning). Easy walk to great food/coffee and many shops to browse. Next time we are coming back for tattoos!
