Our neighbors are very kind. They are considerate, and we wish to be considerate to them. Philadelphia is our beloved chosen city, and we know you will enjoy staying here as much as we enjoy living here!

This is our home, and we love it very much. We know you will enjoy the care that has been put into keeping this beautiful three bedroom house clean, comfortable, and convenient. We expect our guests to treat our house as if it is their own. No smoking in the house. Most importantly, please always remember to lock the doors on your way out.

Good location with just okay amenities

  • 3 of 5

This house was in a great location. Nice cafe a couple of blocks away and restaurants within walking distance. The online photo made the house look nicer than it was. There is loads of space in the downstairs, however the large couch was in bad shape - broken springs. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances, but does not have many glasses or dishes, etc.

The bedrooms were of adequate size, but two of the beds were only mattresses on the floor.

Bedding was fine and the bathroom was good. The second bathroom was in the cellar which was unfinished. The house was clean. Generally, a good place for a gang of male college friends, but not suitable for the more 'discerning' traveler.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Chad is very quick to respond to questions. It was nice to have a few essentials like water milk & coffee there to use.

I will definitely come back again when traveling to Philly.

Parking is very challenging but not impossible.

Not like the photos!

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in over 20 VRBO's and I have to say that this was probably one of my least favorites. For one thing, the house felt totally 'lived in' and was not as clean, organized and inviting as the photos suggested. We received mail for Chad every day and just added it to the growing pile that was already there on the fireplace mantel. Who gets personal mail at a VRBO? We only used the master bedroom but the bed was not very comfortable and the bedding was not nice at all; thin sheets and no mattress pad. We were asked not to open the kitchen blinds due to the neighbors privacy, and I like sunlight in the house. I do agree that Chad went above and beyond in providing amenities for the house, which we did appreciate, but I would suggest clearing out the overflow of magazines and the pile of mail in the living area. I felt like I was intruding in someone else's home.

We've stayed in over 20 VRBO's and I'd have to say that this was one of my least favorite for a few reasons. First of all, the place felt totally 'lived in' and it was not neat, clean and as inviting as the photos suggested. Every day we received Chad's personal mail to add to the growing pile that was already on the fireplace mantle. Why are you receiving personal mail at a VRBO? We only used the master bedroom and the bed was not comfortable, the bedding was not nice at all, a thin sheet and no mattress pad! We were asked not to open the blinds in the kitchen because of concern for the neighbor's privacy and I love to have sunlight in the house. Yes, Chad did a great job at providing many amenities and we appreciated that but please clear the house of the overflow of magazines and all your mail piling up in the living room.
