The apartment was designed using a traditional french motif. The bedroom and kitchen are just off of the main living area; While small, the bedroom and kitchen are very accessible, with high end finishes. The main living room is central to the apartment, it is impeccably designed using west elm furniture, and has a 50 square foot window overlooking infamously lighted-tree lined Addison street. The living room also has a functional gas fireplace and a built in desk which overlooks a quaint Philadelphia street. There is a wonderful outdoor patio off of the bedroom complete with a fountain, an antique iron patio set, and a skyline view of Philadelphia.
A beautifully renovated apartment with high ceilings, and an outdoor space.

This apartment is very nicely situated near Rittenhouse, and there are coffee shops and a grocer within a couple of blocks. There is a private entrance to this ground floor rental, which was perfect with a stroller and kids. The apartment is very tastefully decorated, with modern appliances and a comfy fluffy rug in the living room.
I loved the kitchen/bedroom being a couple of steps higher than the living room and the look in general. To my great delight, the bed was actually very comfortable! The bedroom is a little tight. I stubbed my toe on the bed while trying to get to the bathroom and it turned purple and swelled up - 2 days before I had to run the Philly Marathon! But the kids didn't seem to have a problem moving about. And I made it through the race.
I didn't realize there wasn't a bathtub so getting my small kids clean was a little harder than usual in the small shower, but the water pressure was excellent. Having the washer and dryer was a pleasant surprise and we definitely needed it.
Michael was responsive, professional and accommodating. The stay was definitely easier having him at the helm. Overall, a great trip!!
Cute little apartment
We loved this little apartment. In a cute part of the city, easy walk to just about anything you need.
Exactly as described and wonderful center city location; can walk everywhere
All good except the shower!
The property was well located and was clean and spacious for my wife and myself. The only issue was the shower! It stressed us both out since the water pressure was horrible coming out of the shower head. The owner said the city was working on the water at the time but I don’t believe it because we were there for three full days. It is an old shower head that could easily be replaced and would not cause any issues. My wife has long hair and it took her a long time to wash it. As a result she only washed it once because of the hassle. Also, the two towels they gave us (one hand towel and one bath towel) was old and ratty. Go to target and get new towels; they are not that expensive and would really make a difference. We are not picky people even though it may sound like it but a nice shower is always appreciated. , not a trickle!
I'm so sorry about that. I will be replacing the shower head immediately. I honestly thought the only reason for city water pressure being low would be a city issue. I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of your trip.
Adorable and good location
This place was super cute and the little patio was a perfect place for a glass of wine. Most things you need are nearby and the location was great. We were able to drop our bags off before check in which was really helpful. The only two things that weren't ideal were the A/C and the shower. The A/C was having some issues and leaked all over one of our bags. Just be sure not to store any bags near the A/C unit. The shower was in less than ideal condition. Perhaps it was clean, but just so old that it still looked dirty. I showered and tried not to touch the walls.
Overall we were happy with this place and given the price, location and decor would stay there again if in the area.
The A/C was just fixed. Sorry about that. The drain had been clogged. The shower is super clean and is regularly bleached. It’s a European style shower. We would love to have you back!
Great property. Great location
One suggestion: the shower needs to be updated.
