Enhanced Clean
This Host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Our home is in a great location easily accessibly on foot, by bus, or cab to the Convention sites and to the University of Pennsylvania. Please let us know if you are interested in one room or the whole house (price listed is for whole house).

The space
Near downtown shopping/dining, short walk to Penn, train station (Fitler Square neighborhood). French cafe immediately adjacent, many cafes, bars, and restaurants within just a few blocks. Easy access to multiple bus/subway/train lines. Bikes available for borrowing.

If requesting the whole house, here is a description (read below if you just want to rent a room):
Thanks so much for your interest! Here's a basic description and I'd be happy to email some photos to you of helpful. The home is a "regular" center city Philadelphia townhouse, built around 1850. You enter through a small vestibule, into a large living room, then a medium-sized dining room (we have seated 12 around a large table when needed), and a kitchen leading out onto a 17x17' back yard, which has some chairs (some need replacement, I'll admit) and a couple of benches, as well as a small tree house. The sofa in the living room is a queen-sized pull-out. Second floor: full bath with shower/tub; rear room has beds for four -- top bunk (twin), bottom bunk (full) and trundle (twin); middle room has beds for two (Ikea daybed pull-out - two twin mattresses); master bedroom has a queen size bed. Third floor: full bath (stall shower, no tub); rear room has a sofa someone could sleep on (child-sized); middle room has another Ikea daybed, with two twin mattresses; front room has a pull-out full-size sofa. Basement has two fold-out futon chairs/twin size mattress, vinyl flooring, and a tiny half bath. It is possible that the basement will be full with kids’ school projects and inaccessible during your visit, but I’m not sure yet.

Single room with bath:
Third-floor bedroom and bath (private) with stall shower. Full access to kitchen and wifi. Home is smoke-free and pet-free, and shared by two adults and three children, though third floor is little used. Bed is pullout sofa in quiet library room. Email for more details.

By arrangement, guests can have access to part of all of our home. Sleeps 13 max.

We will leave tourist materials and be very available for information and tips.
Beautiful and walkable, and location, location, location! While there is no parking included and on-street parking is difficult, there are many bus routes (including three right on our corner, and probably as may as ten within a two-block radius), a short walk to the subway (north-south) and El (east-west trains. Also a short walk to the main (30th Street) train station, and a $25 cab ride or a $5 train ride from the airport.

We are a busy family of 5, but always happy to have guests! I work in nonprofits and my husband works from home. We are fine to engage or just leave you alone, as you wish - just let us know. Thanks for considering our home!

During your stay
