Interaction with Guests
We are a household of three: a retired couple, Pat and Brad, and middle aged housemate, Joe. We're friendly and quiet, happy to tell you about the city and the neighborhood, and have good conversations over a cup of tea.
We'd enjoy talking with you about environmental sustainability, spiritual and religious experience, work for social justice, and learning about different experiences and points of view.
We are in the historic Powelton Village section of West Philadelphia, just north of the Drexel Campus. The neighborhood has many large Victorian homes built in the 1860s and smaller homes like ours built in the 1890s.
This is the best neighborhood for getting around! We are within 1 1/2 blocks of three bus lines. 10 minute walk to Market Frankford subway, to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to the River Walk along the Schuylkill River. 15 minute walk to 30th Street Station. Near the Spring Garden exit of the Schuylkill Expressway. Easy door-to-door limo from the airport.
Other Things to Note
We don't have a fixed check-in, check-out time, but it is very helpful to know what time you will be arriving and departing. If another guest is arriving on your departure day, feel free to leave your luggage downstairs while you are out and about.
No smoking or pets. Turn off auxiliary heat when you go out for the day.
Brad and Patricia were nice and friendly. They were helpful and stayed on top of communications before we arrived. Customer service were great. The neighborhood was decent and parking was not difficult. Easy to get around with the city's bicycles.
For some reason, I thought I was getting a guest house, separate for the main house, but that was not the case. The room and the house is a bit on the older side but overall, I was comfortable. The bed is a little tight for 2 people. The porch attached to the room is nice.
We had a great time at Brad and Pat's place. Everything was as described. Thanks again for your hospitality.
Both Brad and Pat were very friendly when we staying there. Also, the place is convenient to all landmarks.
It was a really comfortable stay at Brad and Patricia's. Especially given its proximity to Center City. Also situated in a quaint neighborhood. I couldn't have been more comfortable.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
Nice hosts and good neighborhood near the Universities. Perfect!
