Cute

  • 4 of 5

It was very cute and we really enjoyed it.. parking was great! Jodi even let me keep my suitcase in the unit after checkout as my train didn't leave until 5.

The cleanliness did leave a bit to be desired, the sheets & blankets had animal hair on them in the room I slept in and I'm allergic :( and it didn't look swept or dusted recently. But when I went back for my bag the cleaning lady was there and it looked and smelled much cleaner, so maybe they had just missed a few things prior to our arrival?

I'd love to rent this unit again next year, but it looks like the same 5 nights have gone up an additional $500? That's too bad!

Conveniently located but needs a bit of TLC

  • 2 of 5

The house is very conveniently located for getting in to the centre of Philadelphia and visiting the prison and has the added benefit of being able to park on the drive (hence the 2 stars). Unfortunately the accommodation needs some TLC both for the quality of the decor and cleaning. During our holiday on the East coast we stayed in 4 apartments / houses as well as a few motels. All the other accommodation was very good; this is by some distance the worst we stayed in. The cleaning was superficial, the decor shabby and certain contents tired. It did not feel like a home from home as advertised, which all other accommodation had. After speaking to Jodi she got the cleaners to come back and clean the property again, but it became clear why the cleaning was superficial and we ended up buying cleaning materials and doing the important parts ourselves. Very disappointed, and it almost took the shine off a special holiday for the family. Jodi has replied to us and says she is taking action to rectify the issues.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly as it is represented. A little funky as layouts go, but can't beat having off-street parking right off of Fairmont.

Convenient Parking! Great Locaton!

  • 4 of 5

I love how convenient parking was for us! The house Is located so close to the museum in a peaceful area of downtown Philly. We were provided pretty much everything we needed, but if you plan to cook during your stay, you may feel like the kitchen is not equipped with everything you may need. You should; however, be able to cook with what was given by making do with what you have. Toilet papers, towels, extra blankets, soaps, shampoo, basic toiletries, laundry detergent, and extra trash bags were provided so we didn't have to make a special trip to buy these like we used to with our previous rental. The AC unit works great too! Water pressure for cold water works fine, but there was not enough pressure for hot/warm water, but this was minimal issue for us. We enjoyed our stay. A great place to stay for the price and location.

P.S. The owner, Jodi, was responsive to all questions although it may take sometime for her to get back to us, but she had been helpful and professional thoughout.

Thank you Jodi for having us at your home!

Not practical for 9 people.

  • 3 of 5

We had 6 people in our group. Pros: There were plenty of places to sleep and the property was nice. Parking was a plus!! Location was close to everything in downtown. Cons: There is one bathroom and the water pressure is very low or very hot!! The back patio area was over grown.
