Interaction with Guests
I meet the guests for the key exchange and to go over any details and answer any questions. Typically I am in the area for any need, but I will not be by the house unless needed.
This is a great spot to experience all that Philly has to offer-- it's all about location! With easy parking and close access to public transportation, you can either drive or take the bus or train to anywhere you want to be.
Downtown Philadelphia is 15 minutes away, and the restaurants and night life of Manayunk is a quick walk down the hill. The house is surrounded by Fairmount Park, one of the biggest urban parks in the world, so if hiking, biking, or strolling outdoors is your thing, this is the place for you.
Other things you might need in walking distance: the corner deli (this is key...), grocery store, bank, Dunkin' Donuts, 7-11, hardware store, and a hospital.
The 9 bus, the 27 bus, the 32 bus, the train... it's all within walking distances. Or if you have a car, even better! Street parking is ample and free, and there are no street cleaning mandates so you don't have to move your vehicle.
Other Things to Note
Master bedroom with queen-sized bed
2nd bedroom with full-sized bed
3rd bedroom with queen-sized (giant!) air mattress (if needed)
Pull-out twin sofa bed in the living room
As we're all adults, I'm sure you agree: you should have as much respect for my home as you would want me to have with yours. :)
The place was awesome! I enjoyed the weekend in Manayunk and it was all because of the great accommodations! Thanks so much!
Dana's house was a perfect spot for our vacation. We were two families each with a small child. We had plenty of room, the house was clean and comfortable, and the neighborhood was really neat. Dana left us some awesome recommendations of things to do, both in the Center City and the surrounding neighborhood. Dana was a gracious host, and we strongly recommend considering her beautiful home if you are planning a trip to Philadelphia!
Dana's apartment was lovely, clean, and spacious. There was plenty of room for five us. We stayed there to attend my daughter's graduation from Saint Joseph's University. The location was perfect, the neighborhood was quiet and friendly, and the apartment had everything we needed. We were five minutes to campus and were close enough to run from the apartment to Kelly Drive for a nice, long run! Dana communicated with me early and effectively. She checked in with me to make sure that we had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to any Saint Joseph's parents.
Our stay at Dana's house was wonderful, just perfect - Dana met me at the house when I went to pick up the key, and she was delightfully welcoming. The house was clean, spacious and the beds were very comfy. We were in Philly to spend Christmas with our daughter so we didn't end up spending much time at the house, spending most of our time at our daughter's place, but it made the difference having a comfortable sleeping situation - the difference between a good visit and a great visit. The location was good - only about a 10 minute drive from Dana's to our daughter's in Mt. Airy - and there were a number of useful shops very close. We will use Dana's house in the future whenever we need a two bedroom (assuming it is available, of course.) Thanks, Dana, for the use of your wonderful house - I hope that all was in order when you got home...I did a quick run-through when we left and it looked fine. Hope your holiday was wonderful!
Dana was warm, welcoming and helpful. Her home is beautiful, extremely clean and very comfortable. We would love to stay again!!
I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay at your house during our visit to PA 4 nights and 5 days. The house was clean, neat and perfect.
I would definitely recommend you to others that visit the area.
The house is a true gem.
Dana is lovely and has the amazing ability to create a space that is perfectly welcoming. This was our first airbnb experience and it couldn't have gone better! The listing is exactly right and we four ladies fit in the house great. I would definitely want to stay here again. :)
About the Host, Dana
Hi there! I'm Dana, and I'm a freelance meeting and event planner. My greatest love is traveling, which I do for work and for pleasure. I was motivated to put my humble abode on this site after using Airbnb when I toured through Italy and France. It was an incredible experience to meet locals and stay in such unique places.
I love meeting new people and sharing my love for my little corner of the world!
