Just blocks from Center City, this historic Trinity Home is the perfect place for a getaway in America's oldest city!
Located on a safe, quiet block, and within walking distance to the Subway, Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, and countless restaurants.
Our historic Trinity Home is over 100 years old and full of bright charm. The modern amentities make it a perfect mix of old and new.
There is free street parking on Montrose street and the lot at the end of the block - no permit is required. Additional parking is available on surrounding blocks, but guests should check for permit signs.
Guests have access to WiFi and the 39" flat screen TV with Chromecast and HDMI inputs. Guests will need smartphones and their own Netflix/HBO/HULU accounts to access these services.
Guests may use the kitchen and all its amentities.
Guests should use the under-cabinet fridge next to the range in the kitchen for all of their perishables and chilled food and drinks. Guests are also welcome to use the larger fridge and freezer located in the basement if needed, but the music studio is off limits.
Interaction with Guests
We may or may not be present to greet at check-in and check-out but will always be available by phone and email throughout your stay.
The Hawthorne / Bella Vista neighborhood is teeming with delicious restaurants and bars, the famous 9th street Italian Market, and is a quick walk to the birthplace(s) of the Philadelphia Cheesteak.
The neighborhood is also home to East Passyunk Avenue - which made it onto Food and Wine Magazine's "Best Foodie Streets in America" list.
The neighborhood also includes numerous pocket parks and green spaces, and is just a few blocks away from South Street, Center City, and Old City where you can find lively night life, incredible shopping, and many of America's historic landmarks and museums.
The easy to use Subway system is only 3 blocks from the home. Additionally, there are numerous bus lines that virtually run past your doorstep. Hailing a taxi or grabbing an Uber car is extremely simple as well.
Other Things to Note
The home is antique and therefore all hardwood floors and windows are original and period correct.
Though she will never be around for your stay, we do have a short-haired dog that does not shed.
Due to the age of the house, including its floors and windows, guests should be considerate and gentle with the home. Please do not jump on the floors or slam the windows.
There is no smoking inside the home, but guests may smoke in the backyard, on the 2nd floor balcony or on the stoop in front of the house.
The basement is off-limits as is all of the beer, wine, and liquor that may be in the house.
Pets are not allowed.
My mother, aunt, and I throughly enjoyed our stay at this charming trinity in the Italian Market area. The stairs were a little bit of a challenge for my mother so I would be hesitant to recommend for the elderly. But all in all it was wonderful, we felt like we were in a European home. So quaint. We loved it.
Phil and Kelsey's home was brilliant! Great, safe location to explore Philadelphia from and the house itself was clean and welcoming. There was a super helpful guide to the house and Philly provided which helped us a lot. Phil and Kelsey were also really accommodating when we needed an extra couple of hours in the house to time our train out of Philly. This saved us walking around with 3 big bags all day! Thanks for a great stay!
Communication and checkin were a breeze with Phil and Kelsey. Parking for free without a permit in the city on a small side street adjacent to this home is really nice too. Car was parked for all three days, location is extremely walkable to wherever you'd like to go in philly and close to public transportation as well. The house was precisely as described, the welcome book with suggested restaurants in the area was very helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here on a future trip to Philadelphia.
Kelsey was really good about communication and we're happy with the reservation process. Unfortunately we had to cancel at the last minute and did not get to stay. Kelsey was quick to respond so we were able to take care of the cancellation and head home immediately with no further worry which we really appreciated. We're hoping to stay at this lovely home later this spring or summer.
Das Haus von Phil und Kelly ist perfekt für den Besuch von Philly gelegen. Die City ist zu Fuss in 15 Min zu erreichen. Ruhig, sauber, praktisch. Einchecken völlig unkompliziert. Der Kontakt mit Phil und Kelly war sehr nett. Gerne mal wieder!
Great quiet place. I was staying for two nights, and the apt was easy to find, and the whole experience was smooth. Great proximity to downtown and getting around. Definitely would recommend for a short stay!
We're Phil and Kelsey. We live and work in the great city of Philadelphia!
We enjoy spending time exploring new cities, hiking, skiing, and eating delicious food.
We're respectful and laid back guests and have enjoyed all of our AirBnB experiences!
We're excited to share our home with the AirBnB community!
