My home and now yours has a 100 years. It has four bedrooms and two are for rent. It has one big bathroom, dinning room and living room, a kitchen, wash and dryer area and a good size patio. There is only one person living there and a poodle dog. It is a pleasant atmosphere, quite, it is for you to feel at home!. The location is very near to downtown (walking distance, 20 minutes). I have bikes that you can use. Also, there is a good transportation. Northern Liberties is now the place to be for the variety of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, and much more. Come and enjoy it!. Experience the good energy and family environment!.

Interaction with Guests
I would like guests to feel at home and is nice to exchange experiences and getting to know a little bit. Once they are home I feel they are family.
Around the neighborhood there are many pubs and places to eat and it is very active during the summer as there are festivals and music groups coming at The Piazza every weekend.
There is free parking around the neighborhood but sometimes you need to go around one more time to find space. You will always find parking but probably one block away.
Take care of the house as it was yours.
If you book the room for yourself please do not bring new friends to the house.
As I have only one bathroom, please, clean the bathtub after using it, so the other person can find it clean too. Thanks for understanding. :)
Dora was a wonderful hostess! She made me feel so welcome and was very pleasant to live with. Dora keeps a very clean and beautiful home. She is extremely accommodating and was always willing to help me with anything I needed. Dora was very kind and made my five week long stay and enjoyable one.
Our experience with Dora was awesome! Dora was very flexible and accommodating with our hectic travel schedule. We arrived late and she was waiting for us! Dora is a wonderful hostess and wonderful to talk with (although we didn't spend as much time with her as we would have liked!).
Dora has a beautiful home with beautiful decor expressing her home country of Peru. It was very clean and comfortable.
The neighborhood was typical of a city neighborhood-we felt safe and secure. Close by were eateries and downtown was within walking distance. We most definitely will plan to stay with Dora when we visit again!
Dora, the host, is a very kind and friendly person. Her house is furnished with love and the room is equipped with everything one needs. The area south east of the location is in my opinion one of the prettiest ones in the city, the north west is still a little bit rough. There is a nice supermarket a couple blocks away and street parking is fairly easy compared to center city. I really enjoyed my time here and I highly recommend the place to get a real Philly experience. Thank you very much Dora!
Dora is a wonderful host with a beautiful home. She was very accommodating of my late arrival time, and though I was out much of the time I was there at a conference, she was a pleasure to interact with when we were both around the house. The room is spacious and gets nice light, everything is incredibly clean and comfortable, and the street is nice and quiet yet still in a neighborhood with cute cafés and restaurants. I walked easily to city center (I like to walk) but also found the bus lines very convenient from Dora's house and it was easy to get around. I will definitely try to stay with her again when in Philadelphia.
I had a wonderful experience in Philly while staying with Dora. It was my first time using Airbnb and I wouldn't hesitate to use it again. Her home was beautiful and spotless! I stayed in the large room on the 3rd floor - the bed was so comfy. The bathroom was large. I enjoyed getting to know Dora and having some tasty soup with her one night as well.
The house is easily within walking distance to Girard station which will get you quickly to Center City. Would def stay here again next time I'm in town.
Dora's house is really nice, quiet and clean and has a very individual charme. Somehow the house was very relaxing and had a very nice atmosphere. I stayed alone in the bigger room. It was really spacious and cozy. Dora also had a bike for me - so I could explore Philly by bike.
Dora was so friendly and sweet. She was very caring about her guests and her little dog Shanti, which is very funny and cute. When I felt a little bit sick, Dora made me a "magic potion" that made me feel better the next day...
Dora also had useful tips what to see, where to eat or what to do in Philly. In addition she managed to take me to the bus station on my day of departure. I would definitely recommend staying at Dora's place and would come back any time.
Each day after my long workshop, I looked forward to returning my comfortable room in your home. Thank you, Dora, for making me feel so welcome. When I return to Philadelphia, I will be happy to stay at your house again.

Hi, I am from Peru. I have been in USA for almost 25 years. I love to walk, go to cultural events, read and to travel. I appreciate so much to be able to visit different countries and value their cultures. Be able to meet and share experiences with local people . For me, it is the best way to know about their culture, costumes and their country. So, I decided to be member with this great organization Airbnb because not only helps me to pay some bills but to know and share with beautiful people from different places.
