About the Property
100-yr-old 2br 1.5 Bath Home, Freshly Furnished & Equipped, Close, Quiet Street
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.

- This is a typical Philadelphia rowhouse, attached to others, in a quiet neighborhood not driven by tourism. There are excellent bars, restaurants, and little shops nearby, and tourist areas are within easy walking distance. It is a second home for us and we picked it for these reasons. Also, it is near Penn and other universities and medical facilities, and set up for longer term stays while working or visiting. ...moreless

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose South Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
