My apartment is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 baths, and has 2 stories in a 3-story Victorian home. The downstairs area features a beautiful decorative fireplace and a spiral staircase, a newer kitchen with tile flooring, stainless steel appliances, and an island. A dining area surrounded by bay windows with seating for 4, and living room with plenty of seating and new 55in TV with cable. There is also a half bath and a laundry area feature new front-loader washer and dryer. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms separated by a hallway and a full bathroom, so there is plenty of privacy. Both bedrooms are good sized, have real bedding, plenty of closet space, with private heating controls.
There is an air mattress for 2 additional people if needed and the sofa can accommodate 1 person as well, but it does not pull out.
The apartment is in the Passyunk Neighborhood. E. Passyunk Ave is conveniently located one block away, which was named one of the '10 Best Foodie Streets in America' by Food & Wine Magazine in 2013. Here you will find blocks and blocks of great restaurants, bars, and boutique stores. You are about a 10 min walk to the Famous Geno’s and Pat’s Cheese steaks, the Italian Market is near there as well!
The subway, SEPTA's Broad St Line, is 2 blocks away from the apartment. You are 3 stops (5 min) on the subway from center city and the Sports Stadiums. With the apartment right on Broad St. of course there are Buses and Taxi’s available right out the front door, which makes it very easy to get around the city.
Other Things to Note

Pete was a great host and made us feel welcome. He also gave us great pointers on attractions, activities that weekend and where to eat, even left us a list of great food places for every palate. If you try the Green Eggs Cafe (excellent food and service) keep in mind its cash only. I ubered everywhere and the cost was minimal as the apartment is close to Genos & Pats, Center City, Penns Landing/etc. Apt was clean and welcoming and had everything we needed. I would definitely book again and recommend to others. The only nuisance was the street parking and having to move the car but there is a garage about a block away.
If you want a South Philly location, this is a great choice. Easy access to the subway and all the cool East Passsyunk restaurants. But the best thing about this property is the attentiveness and positive attitude of Peter. He communicated well, was helpful with requests and quickly called when he noticed we had left a couple of items in the apartment.
An excellent experience.
We were in Philadelphia for a week, and we wanted to stay somewhere right in a neighbourhood. This is an excellent space! It's the top two floors of a three story building, and it has a lot of room! There were five of us, and we had sleeping spaces upstairs, and plenty of room on the main floor for hanging out. There is central A/C which is AWESOME, and we needed it. It was a very short walk to two different subway stations. Pete was really helpful and friendly, and left us alone to do our thing. It's a quick walk (10-15 minutes) to Geno's and Pat's (the duelling Cheesesteak places). And also near to lots of "grown up" restaurants, but also some great chinese food places, pizza places, McDonalds, and of course amazing Melrose Diner. We would definitely come back. Note, getting to the third floor requires walking up a gorgeous spiral staircase (which some may find narrow) - we didn't, we loved it. Our youngest liked feeding the fish each day too!
We had an enjoyable stay in Philly, Pete met us went over apt. and showed me where parking garage is. Apt. as described, very spacious and nice for a family. Passyunk is great for walking and many places close by. only 15 or so minutes for Independence Mall, and there is a deck there also for easy parking. Thanks Pete.

The place was perfectly located near the restaurants on Passyunk, which is a hip neighborhood with plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops. The apartment is also a short cab ride to the more touristy parts of Philly. My friends and I enjoyed walking to excellent dinner locations each night. We were very comfortable in the apartment, there was more than enough space for 6 adults and 2 dogs. I am ever visiting Philly again, I would definitely choose this apartment again!
Thank you for your hospitality, Pete!
