About this listing
Come stay in my home in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Philadelphia. This is the edge of the Italian Market. If you love pasta and cheese, it's a must visit area. Pat's and Geno's are close by for tourist cheese steaks but if you want a better options be sure to ask me. South Street, is just a couple of blocks away.
Convenient to the stadiums, center city, the gayborhood, and historic district. While walk-able to most of the downtown area, public transportation is nearby. I have 1 large room with a queen size bed and a private bathroom. You will also be able to use the common area (kitchen and living room) as long as you don't mind me coming in and out, though I will attempt to make myself scarce.
There are lots of reason to come and stay in my neighborhood but one of the best reasons is that it's safe and easy to get to.
I have two cats. They are friendly and would love the company.
No smoking and no pets (other than mine). Otherwise be friendly and don't disturb the neighbors too much.
From Sep 20 - 27, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
Becky was warm and helpful during the course of our stay. The description is spot on and the neighborhood is good too. Tons of restaurants nearby so food is not an issue. We also had easy access to the kitchen and cooked our own meals when we felt like it. The cats are as adorable as described in the ad. It was a pleasure staying here and will definitely choose this spot when visiting Philly the next time.

Nous recommandons vivement cet endroit pour loger sur Philadelphie
This was our first experience with Airbnb, and it turned out great! Becky was quick in accommodating our late request, and was very kind and welcoming during our stay. The room was quiet and comfortable, and her cat Tabitha was particularly cute in how she would always follow us into the room! We didn't have too much trouble finding street parking (free!), and her home is located within walking distance to city center and some awesome restaurants! Will definitely consider returning to Becky's place the next time we visit Philly!
I was in town for a conference at the downtown Marriott it is about a 20 minute walk to Becky's but the neighborhood is so cute and inviting. I came in very late each night and left very early so I did not get to meet Becky but her two cats Tabetha and Sam were very sweet and welcoming. The room was on the second floor with an adjacent bathroom. The room was very cozy and the bathroom was perfect. The bed was very comfortable. Overall, I had a great experience.
Becky and I didn't have much time to talk and get to know each other but she was very welcoming and helpful with my inquiries. The room was exactly as described. Bed was surprisingly comfortable. The neighborhood was nice. There's a couple good breakfast places nearby and the community vibe definitely made me feel like I was experiencing the true Philadelphia.
I was very glad to have had the opportunity to stay with Becky. The room she offers is large, with a comfy bed, and has its own bath. Quiet at night. She asks a very fair price so that the accommodation is really exceptional. Great neighborhood too one block from 9th Street (Italian market) and walking distance to South Street. Bus to D/T is close by; you can use train/bus to get to the airport. Becky helped me in several ways; she is a kind soul and uncomplicated. I liked her two kitty cats too.
I heartily recommend this address for those who can manage one floor of steep stairs and who want a genuine "Philly" experience. Thanks Becky!
