About Sophie

We are new to homeaway but we've been hosting via for about a year now We are working professionals with young children. I am from a small village in Taiwan and my husband is from Connecticut. We love Philadelphia and hope you will too when you visit Philadelphia, whether or not you stay in this house.

Sophie purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Sophie chose Center City

We live in the same neighborhood within 3 minute walk to this house so we will be attentive hosts.

What makes this townhome unique

Our prices are low and below market because this house is on short term rentals during the six months a year my parents are not living there.

The house is on a quiet street. It is a very short walk to museums, restaurants, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and many fun things in the city. Quick trip to Penn, Drexel, Temple, Jefferson, The Philadelphia Convention Center.

This house was built right about 1801 and is one of the many unique and lovely historically certified houses in Philadelphia. The street is charming and quiet even know you are really close to everything tourists come to Philadelphia to see!

Nice apartment/condo in a great location

The location is very close to Franklin Institute and Academy of Natural Science - less than a 5 minute walk. Clean apartment with everything we needed. We would rent this again. Thank you Sophie.

Stay on Cherry Street in Philadelphia

  • 5 of 5

Great location. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. You will need to find a parking garage, but there are plenty in the area. Walking distance to downtown sites and the Art Museum. Loved the location and would stay there again.

Great location at a good price

  • 5 of 5

House is on a quiet street in center city close to everything. The house had everything we need for our long weekend in the city. We came down for the Eagles game and was walking distance to the subway. It's right around the corner from the Franklin Institute. The owner was very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable and Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a really lovely and picturesque neighborhood - Sophie is a very responsive and accommodating owner who was great to work with. The furnishings are modest, but comfortable and at the end of the day exactly what you need, you are going to a home, not a sterile hotel. The house is a 20 or so minute ride from airport (during non-rush hour traffic), within walking distance of museums, food, and coffee shops. Lyfts/Ubers are always nearby, and getting to the locations I was going always seemed to be no more than 15 minutes away by car. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it for others too, it was a great experience.

Great location, quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The town home was perfectly located as it states. It's within walking distance to anything, even though it's on a pretty and quiet street. We really enjoyed our stay and Sophie had everything we needed. We only wish the beds were a little more comfortable.
