About This Listing
Comfortable, sunny and private bedroom with 1 full sized bed and shared bath. My home is a newly renovated three bedroom row house located in the Pennsport section of Philadelphia. Feel free to use the house's common areas - the living room, kitchen, outdoor patio and a small space to chill out in the finished basement.
The bedroom is located on the second floor on the back side of the house. Included are linens, towels, a mirror, TV, closet and a fan (there’s central AC and heat too). I don’t have cable, but the bedroom’s TV is hooked up to an antenna for broadcast channels and also a hard drive that has a library of movies and TV series with plenty to watch. The house has wireless cable internet.
The bathroom is small and shared, but always clean. It includes toiletries and a hairdryer.
Washer and dryer are available for a small additional fee.
Pennsport is a mostly residential neighborhood. There’s a vegan coffee shop and large park 1 block away and some good restaurants that are also close by. Passyunk Square, the Italian Market and South Street are all about a 5 minute bike ride away and are great areas for eating and shopping. Center City is about a 15 minute bike ride and I’m also about 5 minutes from ikea, target and some groceries stores. Street parking near the house is free with no time restrictions and there are bus stops 1 block away.
Please be respectful of the space keeping common areas clean and neat and noise down after midnight. Smoking is outdoors only. Outside doors are kept locked and please close open windows before leaving. Any overnight guests must be confirmed before check-in.
Michael was really nice. He made sure he gave me the code to his place before I arrived. He had a set of instructions on the table which was really helpful. The place was near the airport which made it convenient.
Staying at Michael's was a great experience. He answered all messages and questions promptly leading up to our stay and during. The room/place was exactly as described in a quiet neighborhood. We would definitely stay with him again if we ever go back to Philly!
Although we didn't have much interaction with Michael, he was there to greet us when we arrived and he showed us around his place. We felt very welcome in his very nice and clean home. It was walkable to everything that we wanted to go to. Overall - a wonderful experience and we would consider staying again. Thanks for everything, Michael! :)
The place was exactly as described, Michael was a real friendly host. Best famous Cheese Steak only 10 min walk. Would stay here again.
