Julie is a terrific host. Her apartment, while compact, is very well appointed and well kept, and is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of several distinct mixed use neighborhoods, each with a lot of character and its own unique amenities. She provided a very accurate description of her place, a good set of instructions for its use, and a lot of helpful information about the surrounding area. She was very responsive to all our inquiries and checked in from her end to make sure our stay was going well. When we encountered a minor problem with the thermostat in her unit, she was very understanding and supportive, and we worked through it effectively. Her place is perfect for travelers who would enjoy experiencing Philadelphia from the locals' perspective, in a comfortable and economical setting. I highly recommend it.
The apt has a warm and cozy feel. The neighborhood is beside the Italian Market and in easy walking distance of most locations in Center City. The on street parking can be tight but we always found a spot nearby. This is a good 'home base' for a first time or returning visitor to Philly.
During the weekend of the Philadelphia Marathon, my husband and I plus my sister and her fiance stayed at Julie's place. It was a good size for all of us and it was quite easy to get to Center City. We never got to see Julie but she had left out sheets, pillows, and towels so we had everything that we needed. There are several restaurants within walking distance and you could even see Pat's and Geno's out the window! Parking was a bit hard to find at night but otherwise, we enjoyed our stay!
I reserved this for a work colleague who was working in Philly for a few days. This is what she said: "Clean and comfortable in a great neighborhood where authentic Mexican, Philly Steak and Italian food are nearby. Parking is tough but can be found."
Very spacious and cosy apartment in a friendly neighbourhood, at walking distance from downtown and the main sights. Nicely decorated, it gave us a very homely feeling and we enjoyed spending time in it very much.
Although we didn't have a chance to meet Julie in person, she sent us very clear instruction and was always available and she truly seems to be a very nice girl (and host).
I would recommend it to anyone visiting Philadelphia!
Julie's place was perfectly located for our adventure in Philly for the weekend. Around the corner from Geno's and Pat's, a nice stroll to Old City, a stone's throw to the Italian Market, and wonderfully adorned inside. Julie also sends an amazing pre-arrival email about her location, great things nearby, and a full rundown of public transportation, parking, and the like. She made our visit easy-breezy, and was flexible about check-out time (something us West Coasters always appreciate).
We had a great time in Philly. Julie's apartment is very clean and sunny. We had enough space to fit four people for a weekend. She had prepared everything for our arrival and it was easy to coordinate with her (Even if I didn't do anything but my wife said so). We were able to park on the street and enjoyed the neighborhood. I will do it again.
We had a great stay in Philly with Julie. We were a last minute booking but she was very accommodating and gave helpful instructions and tips on what to do. Her flat is in a great area of town and has free on street parking. V useful!
Julie's apartment is clean and cozy. She left us easy detailed instructions on where to find her keys and everything there is to know about Philly. The apartment can easily sleep 4 people comfortably. It's not too far from the city centre and just literally around the block you can find Philly cheesesteak restaurants. I would stay at Julie's in a heartbeat again! We had a great time!!
