About this listing

I have a large house in center city Philadelphia. The house has three bedrooms available that can accommodate up to five people. I live in the house on another floor. You will have access to the whole house and the roof decks.

The space

I have three bedrooms available. One has a full size bed that will accommodate up to two people, one has a queen bed that will accommodate up to two people, and the other has a twin bed in a new house in the Graduate Hospital area of center city Philadelphia. All of the mattresses are memory foam mattresses and are quite comfortable. The three bedrooms share a bathroom and you would have use of the entire first floor where the living room and kitchen/dining room are. I only accept one party at a time so you will not be sharing a bathroom or the space with anyone else but the people in your party. If you are needing lodging for more than five people, I have an air mattress and memory foam mattress and another extra space to put it in. I also have wireless internet, cable TV, and many other amenities at your convenience. For those with allergies, pets nor smoking has ever been in my house. I keep the house quite clean. I have all the amenities you could ask for. There is a washer and dryer for use on the same floor. You will have full use of the kitchen, all I ask is you leave your dirty dishes in the sink and I will take care of them.

There is a free community swimming pool two blocks away also. My house is just a short 10 minute walk to the most popular and expensive area to live in the city, Rittenhouse Square, with all of usual upscale shopping like Tiffany, Barneys, Armani Exchange, Cole Haan, and Club Monaco just to name a few. A 10 minute walk the other direction and you can be in the Italian Market area. The bus that goes to Old City and the convention center is just a couple blocks away along with another bus that will take you to the Philadelphia Museum of Art or the historic State Prison. Parking is very easy and free if you are driving.

I have lived in Philly for over eight years now and have written a few travel guides and currently write a blog about Philly so I can tell you great places to go. Please email me if you have any questions.

Guest access

You will have access and use of the whole house. To access both roof decks you will have to go through my bedroom. I am not home a lot and this is not a problem. I like for people to feel at home and make themselves comfortable.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house on another floor but am not home a lot. I am easily reachable and can be home at a moments notice shall you need anything.

Other things to note

There are no keys to access my house but, instead there is an electronic lock with a code. Feel free to come and go as you like.

Absolutely loved staying here. Came with my 19 year old daughter and 25 year old niece for a family occassion. Place is in a great location, clean and beautiful. No complaints at all. Rob was so nice and welcoming, helpful with anything we needed at all. Best place and host we have come across.

This is an IDEAL home to stay in. Easily accessible, parking is no problem, and the home was immaculate and modern! He only rents to one visitor/ family at a time making your stay private and relaxed. He makes your visit as comfortable as possible and is such a warm and engaging person. Our visit was above and beyond my expectations and we will definitely be staying with him again!!

Very nice and well appointed. Stayed in the Double bed room. Very clean, but no fan or a.c. unit and it was a very warm and humid night. Rob and I never got the chance to meet due to our schedules; however, he was very quick to respond to my texts. One thing to note - if you plan on driving, there is ZERO parking available nearby. I arrived at 3pm and ended up parking at a garage about 15 minutes away.

Response from Rob:
I leave a fan and space heater in every closet of every bedroom. I also texted you that the thermostat is in the living room. You have to adjust the air conditioner to whatever you like. I don't touch the thermostat since I adjust my own in my own space. Sorry you had trouble finding parking. Since the NFL Draft was in town, everyone was parking in my neighborhood and walking up. Typically during the day, it is quite easy finding parking. At night is when it becomes more difficult.

If you are planning a trip to Philadelphia for a vacation/weekend getaway you must stay at Rob's! This is my 2nd time staying at his home, and I plan on staying here for all my future trips to Philly. The decor is beautiful, it's very clean, beds are comfortable, the view from the rooftop deck is breath-taking, and Rob is very friendly and helpful. You will not be disappointed.

Rob was super accommodating, and his home is located centrally. The townhouse also features a great rooftop deck with a view of the city skyline.

I am a very easy going gay male from the Midwest. I enjoy meeting new people and playing tour guide when I can. I love to travel and try to at least once a month. I am easily entertained and easy to get along with. Some of my hobbies include reviewing restaurants, hotels, casino's and other places around the area, writing a blog about Philly, and driving for Uber and Lyft. I am also a computer programmer by day. I try to stay busy but can usually always find time to show guests around the city if they would like.
