The Space

This is why my place is super duper!....
The apartment is two blocks from E. Passyunk Ave , which was named one of the "10 Best Foodie Streets in America" by Food & Wine Magazine in 2013.
10 min walk to the subway (4 stops away from Center City), 5 min walk to the famous Pat's and Geno's cheese steaks, and the famous Italian Market. All with great shops, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and all in a very safe neighborhood to walk around in day or night.
It's a 20 minute bus/subway ride to where the Phillies/Eagles/Flyers/76ers play.
Center City is 4 subway stops away and that pretty much takes you to an area that is a nice walk to JFK plaza, Logan Square, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (Rocky statue). Rittenhouse Square is also an easy walk from Center City as well. Parking is super easy in my neighborhood.

I keep my apartment very clean and communicate very well and am a pretty easy person to get along with! I am a teacher and can at times have an erratic schedule so sometimes I don't meet guests. I have friends who sometimes help me out with cleaning and handing off keys or I sometimes leave them in a secret, safe spot for you to pick them up that's easy so please keep that in mind if you book. Hope to hear from you:)

***the check in time of flexible means that I sometimes can get you in early and sometimes I can get you in later. I work most days and don't get off till 3/4pm so keep that in mind***

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is East Passyunk, which has undergone quite a revival in recent years. It was traditionally the Italian neighborhood and now has a vibrant mixture of newcomers and old South Philly families. The history and culture is rich here.

Getting around

There is the 47 bus a block away which will take you straight into Center City in around 15 minutes. Also the subway at Tasker Morris is only 8 minutes to the center.
Although walking into town is fantastic as we are on 9th Street so you pass Pat and Genos and through The Italian Market and South St and you're there. It can take around 30 minutes to walk, or more if you stroll.

  • We enjoyed staying at Nicola and Mike's apartment. The location was super fun and Nicola provided some great restaurant advice and is great at responding. The apartment had all we needed for our stay. As advertised, the apartment is quite basic which was fine for us except the bathroom could use some sprucing.

  • The description of the apartment is quiet accurate, all though there were more clothes and private stuff belonging to the host in all the rooms.
    The neighbourhood is nice and quiet, with lots of nice pubs and cafés close by on East Passyunk Avenue (we can recommend Chhaya for breakfast).
    Nicola is a very nice host and great to communicate with. Her place was a good base for our stay in Philadelphia.

  • Nicola was great to communicate with and her place was just what we needed while attending a conference in the city. The neighbourhood is safe and well connected to the city. The description of the apartment is accurate although all the furniture seemed to be different from the photos. It's a great base to come back to after a long day.
