Good location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent five wonderful days here as we explored Philadelphia.

The bed was comfortable and having access to a washer and dryer in the rental was great.

Really good location

  • 4 of 5

First it is important to have a clean place, with all the bells and whistles, owned and run by an organized and professional set of people. Then it is great to find out the apt . is VERY well located in a quiet neighborhood, with lots of good restaurants and needed stores. One can pretty much walk everywhere except out the Parkway. We have stayed in several VRBO properties in the past few years and this is among the best.

We realize the owners cannot say much, but the prices and fees are starting to chase us away. All of the sudden there is an insurance fee and cleaning fee, when we already have travel insurance and the price is approaching $200. But to an extent this is our choice.

One caveat: It will be good to expect to perhaps hear the guest upstairs. There was not much noise but the foot fall was a little weird when it first

happened. i.e. like there was another person in the unit.

Best Place in Philly

  • 5 of 5

Went there for a college reunion. The location is the best possible location for fun in the city. Quiet and safe for sleeping and relaxing, but literally blocks and minutes away for great dining and night life. The communication with Robert and Margot was outstanding. Would highly recommend.

Great place in an unexpectedly great area

  • 5 of 5

Newly upgraded yet quaint home in an old area of philly that feels like you're in history. Walking distance to downtown and all great eating spots. Would definitely stay here again.

Good location, Cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for 3 nights and this place was perfect. Located within easy walking distance of Center City and South Street, there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, and it's a quiet street. The place was nice looking and neat with everything we needed for the weekend. The owner was responsive when I texted and was quick to answer emails prior to arrival.
