Unique Downtown "Trinity" House

House - Entire home/apt · Waverly Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147, United States

The Space

Unique downtown 3-story "Trinity" house in a historic courtyard on a small city street across from a community garden.

Trinities are rowhouses with three floors -- "father" (1st floor kitchen), "son" (2nd floor bedroom/bathroom), and "holy ghost" (3rd floor living room). The bedroom has a full bed and therefore could fit up to two people if shared or an air mattress can be used on the third floor. The stairs are spiral and the bathroom has a full bathtub and shower. The house is fully air conditioned with in-room units that can also be individually controlled.

My house is in a historic courtyard right in the heart of center city. The neighborhood is Washington Square West. There are lots of cafes, restaurants, bookstores and easy access to public transportation. You can also walk there from here -- one of the best things about living downtown!

There is a community garden across the street and friendly people coming and going at all times of the day and night. A very communal setting overall (although also private) staying here would give you a good sense of Philadelphia and this downtown neighborhood.

Please also note that In response to one 4/5s I received I have a professional cleaner come in now regularly so the place will be in tip-top shape for you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • What a wonderful place to stay, and what a terrific host! Christina's tiny, beautiful Trinity townhouse is a gem and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Christina made me feel very welcome, and was great about trouble-shooting any potential problems. You have to be ready to climb some stairs in this three-storey place (I soon got very agile at this). It didn't feel small at all as the space is very well-organized and full of light and colours. Great neighbourhood and ideally located in a beautiful part of central Philly, near shops and restaurants, art galleries, Old Town, bike paths, etc.

  • It was a pleasure to stay at Christina's home during my recent travels to Philadelphia! Christina's home was just as advertised - truly unique and comfortable! And, it was in a great location for exploring the city.

    Christina was very engaging and took the time to ensure that I was comfortable in her home. Even though we did not meet directly, I did feel that she was available if I needed any assistance.

    I also felt very connected to the neighbors around the home! Christina had shared that I was visiting and they all greeted me warmly and knew my name. I felt like I was truly a part of this great home and neighborhood while in Philly!
