The Space

Visting the Philadelphia area?

Looking for a room for a night, week, month or year in South Jersey that is short 20 minute drive to the heart of Philadelphia?

This well decorated home, former family home with plenty of indoor and outdoor space to enjoy may be just what your looking for.

The Yellow Bedroom is 1 of 3 spaces available in this fully furnished home. There is a shared large upstairs bathroom for the 3 available rooms. And a 1/2 bathroom on the first floor.

Fully equiped kitchen, personal fridge for each room rental, plus the main house fridge. Overnight stays come with morning breakfast. And breakfast is provided for the first 3 mornings for guests staying for more than 5 days. The home owner has a local reputation for excellent guest hospitality.

Free driveway and street parking. Public transportation to Philadelphia is close, but slow. However, travel by via car is fast, direct and convenient.

Great location for professional (law, medical, dental, business) students looking for a grown up place on ammenible to a student budget. Also ideal for families accompanying loved ones on business in the Philadelphia area.

Glassboro is 1/2 way between Washington DC and New York City so a great location for inter-city communiters given the easy access to the Philadelphia International Airport(35 min) and the Atlantic City Airport (1 hr).

Atlantic City, Wildwood and other Jersey Shore locations are less than 1 hrs drive away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Nana and John were wonderful hosts and made feel very welcome, like I was part of the family. The room is as described and is very comfortable. Their home is located in a safe area which is handy when you don't have a car, I spent a lot of time walking round the area and always felt safe. Public transport is about a 10 - 15 minute walk away and takes about an hour to get to Philly.

    You have your own fridge and microwave, and bathroom but also are able to use the remaining home to watch tv or cook. Nana and John were always there to answer any questions you had and were able to give some good advice when the winter storms came.

    I would definitely stay with them again on future visits to the area and recommend them to everyone.

  • Nana and John were the perfect hosts!
    Attentive, very helpful and their home was full of laughters!!!
    My friend and I arrived on Friday night and got a bit lost when we were getting near the house and John kindly came to our rescue. He then showed us a few restaurants close by the house before welcoming us in their home.
    By the time we left on Sunday, we felt we had met new friends!!!
    We will gladly return to Nana and John's home on our next trip to Philadelphia and recommend them to all !!!
    PS: Nana, get well soon !!!!

  • Our schedules were at odds, and I only stayed one night, but John was very welcoming and good about accommodating my late arrival. I saw little of him and less of Nina, as our schedules conflicted - but they were lovely and he showed me their very well-appointed home and made me feel comfortable before disappearing. I will definitely stay here again if I'm in the area.

  • John and Nana are more than just great host, they are like family. They are understanding. John would wait for me to come back and park every time, so that when Nana had to go to work in the morning I don't have to get up and move my car. They made everything so easy. It is a nice house in a very nice in a nice neighborhood, and very safe.

  • We stayed 5 weeks in John and Nana's house with our 4 children. I can't tell how wonderful and enriching was our meeting with John and Nana. They literally adopted us and our children. They were extremely helpful. I don't know if we'll meet again but I hope the best for them and their family.

  • Nana and Maya were wonderful hosts. They made me feel at home, and if i'm ever back in Glasboro, I will stop by just to say hi if Im not staying there.

  • I enjoyed my stay with Dr. Maya's residence and family members in Glassborro New Jersey, just outside Philadelphia. Her folks were kind and thoughtful, gave me my own room, bathroom, and let me use their kitchen, watch TV, I felt quite at home. Always friendly and thoughtful, never invading my personal space. Really nice people, and I would welcome the chance to return for another visit.
