About Isolde Buerkli

I am artistic and creative and I love to cook. I grew up in Germany but came to the states when I was 24. I raised my family here in this house and have many fond memories.

Isolde Buerkli purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Isolde Buerkli chose Center City

The house is located in much sought after Society Hill. I provide a guaranteed parking spot as well as a freshly cooked breakfast every morning.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is uniquely decorated. My grandfather was a sculptor and many of his pieces are located throughout my home. The home is very cozy and has a European flair to it.

Fantastic host, charming home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

I’ve traveled a fair bit, but I’ve never stayed in someone else’s home while they’ve actually been there. Went on a limb and tried this out based on reviews and it was a great choice. Third floor had all the privacy we needed. Accommodations were great, Isolde was exceedingly pleasant (and her pup, Jethro), great local restaurants, very safe neighborhood, walking distance to the good stuff. No complaints!

Highly recommend.

Five Star Property

Wonderful Experience, Isolde is a gracious host. The property is immaculate, conveniently

located in a safe, charming Historic area. I was traveling alone and never felt uncomfortable walking to the nearby neighborhood restaurants. The room provided is on the third floor. It is

spacious, comfortable and quiet. The private bath provides complete privacy for the owner and guest. Breakfast is served in a very charming dining room complete with candles. Excellent value, I look forward to future stays

Great location, hostess, and charm!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Isolde for a three day weekend to sight-see while my husband was on a business trip. Isolde was very flexible with arrival, departure and our accessibility to the apartment. She was very helpful and friendly and made us breakfast upon request- with homemade jam! The area is safe and all tourist attractions, eateries, etc. are easily within a few blocks. We highly recommend this listing- it was charming and convenient. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We spent two nights at Isolde's lovely home. Location was perfect for walking to waterfront, Liberty Bell and great restaurants. We also walked to City Hall and Reading Market; beautiful neighborhoods, safe and easy walking. We had a rental car which we didn't use, but it was very helpful to have a dedicated parking space. Accommodations were private and comfortable. Isolde is a wonderful Host and we enjoyed her company and our conversations!!
