This second home is furnished for living. Spacious open downstairs living area, large master bedroom with queen bed, smaller 2nd bedroom with full bed, small deck. Good beds, linens, towels, jacuzzi upstairs, newly equipped kitchen, half bath downstairs, very congenial dining room/work space, comfortable for both longer-term visits and touring Philly. Located on a lovely quiet block near Naval Square and South Street, it offers easy access to the new Schuylkill Boardwalk and River Trail. Very walkable area, with easy access to public transport, Center City, many local hip restaurants and bars. Street parking is easy to find. 15 min by taxi from airport, or if you are a walker, the train to University City is easy. Cross the South Street Bridge and it's a 15-minute walk. One mile from both University of Pennsylvania and Rittenhouse Square.
This is our second home, so it is equipped for comfort. It's VERY new and we are new to hosting, so we will be eager to hear if there are items we should change or add. We appreciate guest's patience as we master the process. We know the best reviews come from the happiest guests, and we'll do what we can to assure a great experience. We LOVE Philadelphia and are delighted to share our enthusiasm.
We live in California and have a daughter who moved to Philly a few years ago. Since she is staying in Philly, we bought this place down the block from her (that's how we know this is a great neighborhood!). Our goal is to spend as much time as possible in this home and also to share it with others who want/need to spend time in Philadelphia working, visiting family, or just visiting this beautiful city.

We love the location and had come to know the neighborhood while visiting our daughter over the last few years. There's a LOT of action in this hip neighborhood, and we were delighted to find a quiet street, not too fancy, where we could rest between adventures. It's VERY hilly where we live - we also love the opportunity to walk and walk in nice flat Philadelphia. There's history everywhere, and wonderful neighborhoods. This place is close to the action but quiet and homey, with friendly and welcome neighbors.
This is just a very nice little place. There are a lot of 30-ish couples in the neighborhood. One of them told us that this is the 'perfect' place for their parents to stay, since the couple has little room for guests. 'Close, but not too close' was their phrase. Also, easy access to the new Schuylkill River Boardwalk and Trail is a real bonus for us.
Our daughter lives in Center City so this location was great. Walking distance to Rittenhouse Square and the River Walk. The house was very comfortable. A little noisy with the windows open but that is to be expected when visiting a large city. The kitchen is well equipped even with a Keurig style coffee maker with coffee pods. The only item I'd like to see added would be a comfortable mattress pad for the queen bed.
We will definitely be back!!!
Clean, well maintained, comfortable. I'm not wordy but I'd stay again. Parking is a bit difficult at night even way before 10. Not a big deal unless you don't like to walk. Seemed like a safe area.
This has been the second time my family has stayed here. And I certainly would recommend it to anyone visiting Philly near Chop or U Of P.
I have been there to visit my daughter and grandchild on holidays or special occasion. The home is cozy. Comfy. and totally clean.
A great pick for the price !!! Will definitely stay again.
Wonderful and cozy. Great location and fabulously appointed. Great place.
The property was perfect - well kept, well supplied, perfect location for everything we needed. Short walk to essential shops (grocery, Walgreens, etc). Uber and citibikes were very convenient. Owner is fantastic and really helped us out both before and after the stay. Everything was perfect from first contact theough the end of the trip.
