    "Our 2nd time staying at a VRBO and like the first, this one was magical. Amazing old stone home, plenty of room, very comfortable and welcoming. Brought our dog with us and she had a great fenced in yard to play. We loved our stay and will certainly return again, wonderful experience, thank you Sandra. Debby, Bill & Molly"

  • Good stuff you might want to know

    "With three colleagues (all of us attending a meeting at the Philly Convention Center), I stayed a week. Lovely place - clean and nicely appointed. Each of us had our own bedroom and bath. Two of the rooms (larger) face the street; the other two (smaller) face a back space between buildings that has some ventilation equipment. The street side was generally quiet, with the exception of the one night that the cable TV folks dug a trench in the street. The back side always was quiet, with the equipment making a bit of white noise. None of us (ages 66, 60, 50 and 45) had any trouble with all the stairs in this property. Similarly, we found walking to the Philly CC, to restaurant row, or to historic sites to be easy and enjoyable on well-lit and clean streets. The wifi functioned well, the kitchen was very well equipped, the appliances all worked, and house supplies were abundant (we did not need to run out and purchase more toilet paper or paper towels). Much appreciated! Correspondence with the host was average. She was professional, moderately prompt in replying, and definitely not chatty. She did not meet us when we arrived but really didn't need to. The instructions were clear as to how to enter and leave the property via a combination lock. A few things would have been handy to know, such as a reminder to pull the outside door shut behind you. It did not always click shut on its own. As people who tend to use public transportation, it also would have been handy to know that the nearby SEPTA rail line Jefferson (East Market) Station sends a train to the airport every 30 minutes. The train is convenient, speedy, and cheap ($8 from PHL, $7 return). Finally, it would have been helpful to know that the photos on Google maps, while reasonably accurate, make the neighborhood appear a bit undesirable. Actually, the neighborhood is just fine and there's a terrific upscale grocery/deli on the corner. Also a kosher deli next door. Yum to both. Yes, you guessed it. All of us would stay here again."

  • In a word -- perfect!

    "This lovely, impeccably maintained home was perfect for my last minute vacation in New Hope. Rich in history, and perfectly located -- I think we took the car out of the provided parkng spot, twice all week -- this house has magic. Beautiful walking/bike paths (smelling of honeysuckle and teeming with wildlife) along the canal are steps away, or you can wak over the bridge to Lambertville and enjoy the State park paths along the canal and railroad. The best restaurants shopping, and everything you need are just steps away -- Perfect. PS Not sure what the reviewer below meant, but their is nothing offensive at all in the interesting period items that appear throughout the the house."
