We had three adults guests who we couldn't host in our own house, but I was glad to find this gem of a place. Beautiful and comfortable house, our guests loved staying here. Clean and has a very nice decor, feels like 'home away from home'. The little extras - Kcup coffee, detergent, etc. - really helped and made the stay even more comfortable. Clare and Frank are wonderful hosts and they are very attentive. If we ever have guests coming and the place is available, I will definitely book again ! Thank you.
I stayed at Clare and Frank's carriage house with two friends for a wedding. Their carriage house apartment is beautiful and practical. Every feature you could imagine needing at a stay is there from guidebooks of the Greater PA area to the apartment having coffees/teas and condiments for guests. They even brought us breakfast scones in the morning. We were quite comfortable throughout our entire stay. One of my friends said that she has stayed at 5 star hotels, and not received the quality of service that Clare and Frank provide. This was my first stay with any Airbnb and it was fabulous experience. I recommend anyone who is looking to stay in the Greater Philadelphia area to stay at Clare and Frank's carriage house apartment- especially families. We cannot thank Clare and Frank enough!
Clare and Frank felt like family the second we met them. They are so gracious and welcoming. They take pride in what they do, and it shows, from the decor in this adorable apartment, to the personal touches, to the inclusion of every single amenity you could possibly require. They went way above and beyond for us, bringing gifts and helping us out of a minor crisis. We felt so at home in their beautiful space that we didn't want to leave. We feel so fortunate to have found them, and will definitely return.
How can I compliment Clare and Frank? They are both warm and welcoming people who truly love inviting people into their home. They are very engaging and made our stay such a wonderful experience. We will hopefully stay with them again they next time we travel back to PA.
Every little detail was thought of, from the binder full of things to do in PA. Frank's favorite place to eat on Tuesdays to providing grocery store tags to receive discounts a local grocery stores.
My husband and I will recommend the comfortable and cozy Carriage House in North Wales, PA to everyone we know!
Claire and Frank were incredible hosts. They're communication before and during the stay was excellent, and their hospitality was unmatched. The house is spotless, comfortable and full of amenities. The neighborhood is very quiet and convenient to major attractions in the area.
Clare and Frank could not have been more amazing hosts. The apartment is just lovely, very clean, and the property itself is beautiful. The yard is filled with nature and the neighborhood is safe, quiet, and convenient to everything the area has to offer. The apartment is equipped with everything you would ever need for the perfect short or long term stay. Their attention to detail is beyond measure. We cannot wait to return. We can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thanks for everything!!!
A wonderful cottage! Clare and Frank were so nice and helped us with everything. We were two adults two children and the cottage was just perfect, comfortable and had all the amenities needed! We only wished we had more time to just stay on the grounds have a meal, or let the kids play in the yard. Would highly recommend booking if your travels bring you to the Horsham area...
About the Host, Clare & Frank
We are two native Philadelphians, a Mechanical Engineer/Handyman and a Finance & Operations Professional, who possess a good combination of "creativity and craftsmanship"
We have planned and completed numerous home improvements (large and small) at our North Wales home over the past 20+ years.
We like meeting new people and since we are "between jobs" we thought we'd try our hands at hospitality. We were happy to be awarded "Superhost" status recently by airbnb after just 6 months of hosting.
We've been very fortunate to host many great guests and we look forward to meeting and hosting many more!
