  • Great base for seeing lots of Philly!


    Our group loved our stay at this Historic home--it was perfect for our needs. One couple stayed on the 3rd floor, one couple on the 4th floor, and we shared a bathroom. As we were mostly out during the day, it was plenty of space and really fun to live for several days in such a unique style of home. The owner has put a lot of thought and attention to detail in all the furnishings, so that they are both functional and beautiful. As stated in the listing, it is close to so much in Philly! Some of the great food we were able to try within walking distance included John's Water Ice, Cannolis from Isgro bakery, Middle Eastern takeout from Cilantro, and OX Coffee (delish and a 3 minute walk away). We also walked to the Liberty Bell/Independence Hall, Magic Gardens and many of the historic sites. This unit is VERY quiet--never heard a neighbor from inside, no traffic/loud city noises. The only thing that I wanted to note as a potential improvement is that the top bedroom is very bright in the morning due to several skylights--it was bright as soon as the sun was coming up. If you're someone who likes to sleep in, it may help to bring a sleep mask or something similar. This would definitely not keep us from coming back, more just to be aware of! Lastly, the host was very gracious and let us keep our baggage there for several hours past check in so we could see a few more sites before heading to catch our flight. Loved staying here! Thanks again!
