About this listing
Small cozy room with twin size bed has free wifi, a nice desk and chair, lamp, and a wardrobe. The squirrels and birds will greet you out the window. Long term rates make it very affordable. I have a 30 day minimum but am very flexible.
Sunny furnished room in large house across from large park. Includes heat, electric, hot & cold water, and wifi. Furnishings include twin size bed, desk, chair, bureau, and lamp. A wardrobe closet holds plenty of storage. Non-smoking, clean, quiet, well-maintained house on a quiet street. Quiet, resourcefulness, and independence important. It is a five minute car or bus ride to the University of Pennsylvania and only 10 minutes to downtown. Plenty of free street parking (very rare in the city), lovely park directly across the street. The 42 bus conveniently picks up at 51st & Spruce. Also, the 52 bus will take you to the high speed rail to center in record time. Laundry service available for a small fee.
The neighborhood is University City and is full of fun and exciting things to do. I will recommend many things to make your stay enjoyable and edifying.

About the Host, Anita
I am originally from New Jersey, and I am an artist, so I enjoy looking at art and creating it. I also love reading, writing, antiques, dancing, and music. That is just to name a few.
My father was a neurologist, originally from Italy, so I grew up with an appreciation of different cultures, as well as, a passion for art and science. My mother was an American artist, which made for an interesting life.
