Other Things to Note
No Pets in the house though we love animals in our hearts. We stay in a room down the hall with our happy 10 month old. The walls and distance make for perfect sound-proofing.
Fantastic response from Rachael. We booked her one bedroom rental a few hours before arriving and had no problems at all. Very welcoming host and great information on the area for all our needs.
We had a great stay at Rachel's Apartment and would definitely recommend this nice neighborhood of Philadelphia, close to many cafes and restaurants and to the museums. Thanks a lot!
Rachel was warmly welcoming to us, flexible about timing, responsive to our needs, and in general delightful.
Rachel was a very kind and attentive host, making sure we were clear and set with everything. The home was clean, attractive, and modern. The room was a good fit for us traveling as a couple, and the adjacent guest bathroom was nice and well-stocked; overall, a good privacy within a larger home. The location is perfect, right near the cafes and restaurants on Fairmount Ave, lovely walk towards museums. Highly recommended, thanks Rachel!
Rachel was a super friendly host and the room we stayed in was immaculate. The guest bathroom was very clean and nicely stocked, as well. The house is in an excellent location with super easy on-street parking, access to the city bus, and a short walk from some of the major sites - and don't neglect the cool charms of the Fairmount Avenue neighborhood, either. All in all, a great airbnb!
The room is so nice, clean and neat. Bed is comfortable. And Rachel is considerate to staff the bath room with enough tissue paper, shampoo and conditioner. It is a perfect experience to stay with there. If I visit Philadelphia again, I will choose to stay there again.
Rachel was wonderful to work with and the space was perfect! It was made all the more lovely by the presence of her beautiful baby to greet my wife and I when we arrived. I highly recommend staying with Rachel on your next visit to Philadelphia. I would certainly stay here again as well.
