We would be happy to give you recommendations on all the great restaurants and bars that Philadelphia has to offer. We are also very familiar with other local attractions and museums.

The Neighborhood

Our NEIGHBORHOOD has coffee shops, local bars, great food, and market all close by. Our neighborhood, Graduate Hospital, was recently named by PhillyMag the hottest neighborhood to live in, it is made up mainly of young professionals, young couples and new parents.

We are a short walk to Rittenhouse Square which is a large beautiful park. And the neighborhood park, Julian Abele is just around the corner. Also close by is the Schuylkill River Trail, Philadelphia's newest riverfront destination and a great running trail leading to the popular boathouse row.

  • Julia and Michael were perfect hosts who went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Their home is new, spacious, clean, comfortable and ideally located within walking distance of Philadelphia's attractions.

  • We had a great time at Julia's place in Philly. Our room was spacious, quiet and private, as was the bathroom. We didn't see Julia much, but she was friendly and provided us with suggestions for local restaurants and public transit. Her home is in a great residential area, and we were able to walk almost everywhere. A positive first Air BnB experience!

    January 2014
  • The accommodations were just perfect. I stayed for three weeks, and I found the house, room, and bathroom all very comfortable, clean, and convenient. The hosts were very helpful, accommodating, and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting for short or long term!

  • I was very satisfied with my stay at Julia and Michael's home. They were extremely accommodating and flexible with my uncertain schedule. The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. My stay could not have been easier. Definitely recommended.

  • Julia & Mike created a very comfortable private guest space in their home. The bedroom is very spacious with a great sofa sitting area and desk, just as shown on the website. There’s plenty of storage in the charming bureaus and a closet. Soft sheets and luxurious towels make you feel well cared for by this warm couple. The private bathroom too is equipped for comfort. Julia made a yummy autumn oatmeal with pumpkin and apples. And cookies too!
    They were very helpful with tips on getting around, local spots and foodie restaurants. Know that they have two cats, very beautiful and friendly. Although I have an allergy I was not bothered by their cats. A testament to how spotlessly clean their house is.
    We recommend their place to other couples and singles who want a city experience in an up and coming neighborhood. A bus line that runs frequently is just 2 blocks away to get you quickly to downtown Philly. Buy tokens when you arrive to save on bus fare. We enjoyed exploring their South Philly neighborhood.

  • Julia and Mike were great hosts! They have a beautiful, inviting home. We had a great experience.

    November 2013
  • We absolutely loved our stay with Julia. She and her husband were more than accommodating. They provided us with maps and guides for parking and for how to get around the city. Julia was extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations too! We were able to come and go as we pleased and we felt like it was practically our own little home in Philly. The bed and sheets were beyond comfortable as well, which made it seem like an even better getaway. We were also just a 15 minute walk from Rittenhouse and from there, we could get everywhere else we needed to go. We will definitely be staying with Julia again.
