The space is cozy and quiet and is furnished with a double bed, CableTV, WiFi access, antique arm chairs, bureau, and a lovely oriental rug. The space is above a Yoga /dance studio so you may occasionally hear a class below or get a visit from one of my 2 loveable felines-Suki and Batman. (They can easily be kept separate for those with allergies) The space is in a restored carriage house that has a skylight and unique architectural features such as the original Carriage house gears.
Guests will have full access to the bedroom, bathroom, and many shared common areas including a sitting room, living room, and outdoor deck).
Interaction with Guests
I love to interact with my guests but am also happy to give them all the space and privacy they desire. Even though my work keeps me pretty busy I am always delighted to share any insights that I have about the neighborhood and this great city!
I love this neighborhood! It has a small town vibe with big city attractions. You can walk to Whole Foods or a local coffee shop and run into a bunch of friends or you can enjoy great restaurants, museums, concerts, and major events just a few blocks away. The street is quiet at night but night life is a quick walk or cab ride away. Center City is easy to get to via public transportation and there are great places to walk, hike, or cycle nearby.
There are numerous ways to get around. The No. 33 bus stop is less than a block away and takes you into the heart of Center City, Philadelphia. The subway is 5 blocks away and takes you North and South on the Broad St Line which connects you to routes all over the city. Cabs are easy to access and the whole area is wonderfully walkable.
Other Things to Note
The space is above a yoga/dance studio so there may be times when classes are being held in the space below. Guests can enjoy the vibe of the classes, move to a quiet room next door, or visit one of the many great cafes or coffee shops in the neighborhood. The space has an oriental feel and one wall of the space features shoshi screens for privacy instead of a traditional door. (Feel free to contact me for more specific scheduling information.)
