Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Joan and William White are a retired couple who after a failed attempt at a leisure retirement in Florida returned home and built the retirement home on a lot Joan had had for years. Inadvertently, it turned out to be a hotel rather than a home. Although it is perfectly appointed for owners that intended to stay there, they found it was just to big and moved to a condo. They started out petite hotel as a hobby but it is quickly turning into a full time job. It has gained and gained in popularity. Joan and Bill enjoy fussing over the place and their guest. It is a symbiotic relationship for sure.

Why Roxborough-Manayunk, Philadelphia, PA, USA:
As previously mentioned, Joan had owned this property for about 15 years and had always had the idea to build on it. Manayunk is such a great neighorhood with it wonderful Main Street and open air restaurants and clubs and other wonderful shopping. it is well located, close to center city and close to the Main Line, Chestnut Hill and the Schyukl Expressway.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Iit is rare to have a nice city chic spot. Many of guests come to visit their relatives, but end up having their relatives visit them at their suite instead. It wonderfully furnished room and very roomy about 500 square ft. It is just so cool, that their friend have and family have said to them 'HOW DID YOU FIND THIS.'
