The Space

Welcome :)

We’re a couple in our mid-twenties that have developed a love affair with our home in Center City East, Philadelphia.

We picked this spot because...
1) We wanted to be close to the very center of the city where many historical and nightlife attractions are easy to visit on foot or by bicycle.
2) We loved the natural light from our large, living room windows and the view of the park.

Once we hand you your keys you can come and go as you please; we are here to help if you need.

The space is ~ 1100 sq ft and composed of 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom (shared), and a kitchen.
It features:
• A kitchen with brand new appliances (Oct 2013)
*sink and garbage disposal, dishwasher, gas oven and stove, refrigerator, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, Brita water filter
• 50-inch LED TV with Playstation 3 and Netflix
• WiFi
• Desktop computer for guest use
• A spectacular Washer and Dryer (free detergent)
• Hair Dryer
• Central air
• Ikea chocolate bars (the BEST)
• High ceilings with lots of natural light
• Roof access
• We’ve labeled the kitchen cabinets so you’ll be able to find everything without us

In your room:
• Full size bed with a new duvet comforter (Nov 2013)
• Heated Blanket & Space Heater
• A desk with a desktop computer and wireless printer
• A new, empty closet with hangers
• Shelves for storage + card games
• Full length mirror
• Iron and Ironing board
• A door that locks from the inside and outside
• Towels and washcloths for you to use in the bathroom

If you need something (toothbrush, Q-tips, etc.) please ask; we have extra toiletries just in case.

Our area is uniquely placed at the intersection point of 4 neighborhoods: Washington Square West, Society Hill, Bella Vista, and Queen’s Village. We LOVE where we live, next to the bars, shops, and restaurants of South Street and surrounded by a safe neighborhood where many of Philly’s mom&pop cafes and shops can be found.

• Markets: SuperFresh and Whole Foods grocery stores are located on South & 10th
• Italian Market fresh food vendors are a few blocks away
• Starbucks: South & 9th
• Post Office: South & 4th
• Police Station and Fire Station: South & 9th, South & 6th
• Subway Station: Lombard & Broad Street (14th)
• If you have a vehicle, please let us know and we can work out an accommodation.

Our street is very quiet, away from city traffic noise (aside from the occasional sirens). We love our view of the park trees and the lights of downtown buildings. We can walk to anywhere in the city within 20 minutes and we are just a few blocks away from all the historical sites of Philadelphia.

*If you would like to check-in before 4:00pm, we may be able to accommodate depending on the day of the week*

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We only stayed with Jana and Billy for one night and were out most of the time, but it was obviously that they were great hosts and great people in general! They gave us advice on walking around the city, made us totally comfortable and kept us fed! The apartment is clean, in a great location and Jana and Billy have labelled cupboards so it's easy to find everything. I'd recommend this apartment to anyone.

  • We stayed with Jana for three nights in June and loved their apartment. Jana and her partner Billy were great hosts and were really helpful with recommendations for places to visit in Philly as well as just being great company. The apartment is really comfortable and in a great location, in walking distance to the historical centre as well as good restaurants. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

  • We had a wonderful time in Philadelphia thanks to Billy and Jana.
    They are a very kind couple and they have a lovely and very clean appartment withing walking distance of every touristic sights.
    That may be the best price/quality ratio you can have in PHI:)

  • Jana and Billy were great hosts! Very communicative, activ and social. Offered always help and tried everything to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The apartement is also great! The sights, bars and shops are all within walking-distance. Couldn't imagine any better place to stay!

  • Jana and Billy were the best hosts anyone could stay with. They were so kind and hospitable, picking me up from the airport, taking me to get the megabus when I went to NY and cooking for me when I arrived after a long plane journey from the UK. Everything is labelled in the flat and I was able to help myself to breakfast and use the facilities. I was travelling on my own and they made me feel very welcome and comfortable. It was really great hanging out with them in the evenings and going out with Billy during the weekend I was there. I feel like I had made two friends, rather than just staying with two hosts. I would highly recommend Jana and Billy to stay with if you're visiting Philadelphia. Their flat is clean, homely and in a great location to walk to most things. I feel that Jana and Billy made my stay what it was and I had a wonderful time staying at their apartment. Would definitely stay again in a heartbeat if I was visiting again.

  • This was my best airbnb experience to date. Jana and Billy have set up a wonderful apartment that is perfectly situated for guests, right down to the labels on each cabinet in the kitchen telling you what each one contains and all the amazing snacks in the shelves/fridge! The apartment was perfectly clean and comfortable with a computer for our own use, and located right next to South Street and the Italian market, with about a 15-20 minute walk to Center City. Billy gave us a comprehensive overview of the city that was filled with rich historical knowledge and really helped us understand where to explore, and my boyfriend and I ended up going to brunch with Jana and Billy because we enjoyed their company so much. Can't say enough good things - highly recommended!

  • My sister and I stayed for two nights at billy and jana's place, they are delightful people, they were ready to help and give advice when we wanted to go out. They have collected brochures and maps for guests. The flat is very clean and very nice, and in an ideal location !
    We would stay there again without any second thought if we had to stay in Philadelphia again !

  • Only one night in Philadelphia but Jana and her boyfriend made our stay pleasant. They welcomed us and listened to our stories about our trip. Thry gave good advice about places to eat and see.

  • I stayed here for two nights. The location is awesome! It is a 15 min walk from the Independence Hall. For dinner, there is a variety of restaurants to choose from on South Street. The room is big enough and comfortable. The house is clean and neighborhood seemed safe.

  • I had an excellent stay with Jana and Billy - they, their space, and their neighborhood were all excellent. Their space was very warm - cozy and very clean. More so, Billy and Jana intentionally thought through several items designed to make their guest(s) very comfortable. They had separately colored towels and robes for guest, a list of foods guests could help themselves to, etc. They even left me an umbrella next to my shoes with a note saying it might rain! They obviously put alot of time and care into the apartment and into creating an enjoyable experience for their guests.

    I had great conversations with Billy and Jana in my two evenings in Philly - they are both very warm, interesting people. In addition, Billy spent time directing me where to find free, safe parking (which is otherwise expensive in their awesome neighborhood!) Billy cooked breakfast my last morning, which was excellent!

    I would definitely recommend staying with Jana and Billy, and plan to do so myself when I return to Philly!
