Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My co-worker and I stayed here for 10 days on a long work trip -- we loved it! It's a very cozy home, and the location was awesome, easy walk to lots of great restaurants. It was a lovely home away from home -- we'll be back for future trips!

Well designed, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four had a great visit to Philly, and this location was ideal. Philip was very accommodating, and the townhouse was spacious enough for us. Great restaurants nearby, easy transport nearby. We would definitely stay again!
