Nice place, walking distance to everything
Clean, plenty of room and great location
Nice size but there was mice poop on the counter. Had to throw my breads out. Neighbors kept us up.
Nice TV Good soap supplies. Had trouble with the heat at first. There were mice in the rental. The neighbors kept us up at night with their fighting, loud noises and swearing. Bad for our children to hear. There was a car that blocked the driveway the entire time we were there. No extra blankets for the couch. The neighborhood was a rough crowd.
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.
Conveniently located but needs a bit of TLC
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.
Not practical for 9 people.
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.
Needs new housekeeper
Great air conditioning, plenty of hot water, good location and parking. Friendly neighbors.
Wall near stove covered in grease, both bathroom and kitchen floors need washing. Sparse kitchen supplies, torn comforter in bunk bed room. Old gross candle on paper plate on dining table. Only given 1 roll TP for six people.
The home is steps away from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Rodin Museum, The Barnes Foundation, The Franklin Institute, Eastern State Penitentiary, The Philadelphia Zoo and more! Just a half a block from the home, Fairmount Avenue hosts delicious restaurants, bars, stores and is a bustling area during the day and at night. About a mile from the home is Center City/ City Hall, Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, Franklin Square, Dillworth Hall, etc. and just a quick taxi or Uber ride will take you to all Philadelphia Historical Sites including The Liberty Bell, Independence National Historical Park, The Betsy Ross House and more!
