Charming Carraige House!

  • 5 of 5

The Carraige House was absolutely amazing! It was very roomy and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for our Thanksgiving meal! The location was perfect also. Thank you Julia!

Will definitely stay here again! 5 star accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Julia's place for four nights and had a great stay! The home was comfortable, spacious, very clean, and in a convenient location just a few blocks from Rittenhouse. Furnishings are nice and well taken care of. Large roomy fridge and kitchen would be great for cooking (although I didn't, so many great places to eat/drink nearby!). The home was perfect size and felt open and airy with a living room full of windows for natural light. The home is tucked on a smaller side street and I didn't hear any neighbors in the connecting homes. It was very quiet considering it's location. I never met Julia but she provided useful information prior to my stay and was nice enough to check in via email to make sure I arrived without any issues. There is a washer / dryer in the unit which was a great as we did our laundry before we left.

We would definitely recommend anyone visiting Philly to stay here and Julia was great with refunding the deposit.

Felt like we lived in Philadelphia

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is perfectly located on a small side street in the city. There are too many restaurants and shops to count within a one or two minute walk of the home. There’s a bus stop right around the corner from the front door. The Schuykill River Trail is only a five minute walk.

The home is very clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen and laundry room both have high end appliances. The kitchen is one of the best equipped HomeAway kitchens that we’ve ever had the pleasure of using. It has everything you could possibly need for either a small, or very large meal. Big bonus was a professional grade waffle maker, which we used all four mornings.

The queen size bed is very firm, as stated by another Homeaway reviewer, but we both slept really well during our entire stay. We never experienced a restless night due to the firmness of the bed. The home is very quiet, we never heard a single neighbor. The way the carriage house is located on a small side street, you really don’t hear anything other than the occasional horn or siren.

Julia is very prompt with returning messages. She contacted us with one hour after our initial contact. Then without prompting, she contacted us a week prior to our pending arrival and gave us excellent directions for entry into the home. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for more of a “what’s it like to live in Philadelphia” experience while visiting the city. LOVED IT!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Julia and Steve's carriage house. It is beautifully decorated and ideally located. Restaurants and shops a few feet from the door. A bus stop right by your door. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. All high end appliances in the kitchen and laundry room. Trader Jo's

a few blocks away.

The owners will quickly respond to your every need. Do not hesitate to rent this great apartment.

Lovely upstairs apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment. First class appliances (washer/dryer, dishwasher, frig). Great kitchen. AC worked well, which we needed with temps above 100 degrees every day we were there. Quaint cobblestone street. Lots of restaurants close by, also Trader Joe's in easy walking distance. Due to the heat, we took buses quite often, but otherwise the apartment is a 15-20" walk from museums, perhaps a little more to Philly's wonderful historic sites. Comfortable furnishings, with a great TV for relaxing after sightseeing (we watched Olympics after coming in from sight-seeing/eating out). Owner was very helpful, too. We would definitely stay again should we return to Philly.

Wonderful hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is fantastic and the house is very functional arranged. You feel like you were at home. The owner Julia is very helpful in every aspect! We had a minor problem with a traffic on the arrival day. But she responded right a way and offered us a solution. Not only the property, but also the guests are in a good care. This is definitely a place we want to come back again! Thanks, Julia!
