About The Owner

★★★★★ “To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson

Awesome Location - Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place! High ceilings, lots of natural light, and comfortable beds. The best part is the incredible, central location. You can shop for food right across the street or eat at one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood (try the Monk's Cafe). I would definitely stay here again.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for five nights. It is in a fantastic location central to several area attractions. We were two blocks from the orange line which was great because we went to two concerts, Bruce Springsteen and Adele. The apartment was very clean, quiet, and secure. The host was very responsive and offered us many suggestions if needed during our stay. We will definitely return!

A perfect place to stay in the heart of Philly!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults and 3 teenager kids) had a wonderful stay at this place. The two-bedroom condo is spacious and well equipped, and the location cannot be better, with lots of restaurants, cafés, and shops within walking distance. The owner was very responsive and went out of her way to ensure that we had a comfortable stay, setting up an extra airbed for us, stocking up the place for us, and even went out to buy a new TV for the unit the afternoon of our arrival when the original delivery did not arrive in time for our visit. The owner was there to greet us at 9 pm to show us the place, and gave us recommendations about cafés and restaurants in the area. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will definitely stay here again when we visit Philly.
