Interaction with Guests
You will have the whole property to yourself and will not be bothered. We will be available by phone and will have a property manager for any problems that might arise. We have been listing our home on Airbnb for several years and have never had a problem. Please be aware that you will be responsible for taking out the trash and snow removal if needed.
A few restaurants and small grocery store on the corner. The neighborhood is best known for the Kelly Drive/ West River Drive biking/walking path into Center City. (see picture)
Regional Rail train line is 3 minute walk up the hill into Center City (about 18 min ride to city)
Or if you have a car, there is plenty of room to park in driveway. East Falls is one of the most convenient areas of Philadelphia to get around the area from - major roads to everywhere in the area are within a few minutes (Interstate 76, Kelly Drive (10 minutes to Art Museum), West River Drive, Rt 1, City Line Ave, Henry Ave, Ridge Ave).
Other Things to Note
Since we are only taking long term stays, guests will be responsible for snow removal if needed and taking out weekly trash to the curb. We will have a property manager in case there are issues with the house; however guests should expect to be generally self sufficient during their stay. We do provide a very thorough house manual upon check-in and of course we are always available by phone or email for any problems or questions.
Guests are not permitted in basement.
Enjoy and take care of this lovely home! :)
The property is in a great location with easy access to public transportation and several bars and restaurants. Our dog also loved the backyard. Our only wish was that we had access to the on-site laundry, but this seemed to be a legal issue with the facilities being in the basement. At least there are multiple laundromats in the area.
Joe and Liesa were excellent hosts. They were very timely with all communication and addressed all of our needs in a prompt manner. They were always very kind and professional.
I loved staying at this home!!! It was extremely clean and comfortable. The bed is especially very comfy and the bathroom is very modern. Very close to the train station (5 minute walk). Liesa is an amazing host. She is very sweet and will go out of her way to make you feel comfortable. She is always available to answer questions. There is also an adorable, playful cat! Best airbnb I've stayed at. Highly recommend!
Joe and Liesa's place is great. It's a clean, well-lit, well-decorated, well-constructed little place just around the corner from the East Falls village by the river. The neighborhood is cute and walkable; there's a train station a block away; the river is a block away; the highway is a block away; it has its own driveway to park in; and it's only a short drive (through the riverside park!) to Central City. I enjoyed staying here because it was comfortable, convenient, and Joe & Liesa were interesting and fun to hang out with. =) Definitely recommend.
Such a nice, well-designed home in a charming neighborhood! Conveniently located just a few blocks from the river and bus stops, I was surprised at how close to the city it actually was.
I was fortunate to have stayed in Joe and Liesa's lovely home for a few nights while I had a staycation here in Philly. We didn't have the luck of meeting Liesa during our stay since she was away although we enjoyed having Joe host us very much. Their home was clean and comfortable & Joe was excellent at making us feel welcome when we saw him.
My family and I really enjoyed staying at Joe and Liesa's beautiful home in Philadelphia! Newly remodeled, this was really a beautiful place, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed dining in the neighborhood and had no trouble getting to the heart of the city to enjoy being tourists. Joe was very helpful, answering all of our questions. We definitely recommend Joe and Liesa's place if you are traveling to Philadelphia, especially with kids.
The house was exactly as described and the photos match well. We met Joe and he was very helpful and answered many questions. His advice of taking Kelly drive into the city was great. The house was less than 15 minutes from downtown so it was very convenient. Overall it was a great first Airbnb experience (previously used VRB0). If I'm in Philly again, I'll look up Joe and Leisa again!
