The Space

Furnished 1 bedroom apartment with garden patio located 4 blocks from beautiful Rittenhouse Square. Excellent space for a short term work assignment, a week of vacation or a weekend getaway! It can comfortably sleep up to 4 adults. Utilize the well-appointed galley kitchen to prepare meals in-house or dine out at one of the many restaurants or coffee shops located within a two block radius. The private entrance to the apartment is located on a quiet side street, situated between 2 major SEPTA bus routes [#17 & #40] so you’ll have easy access to events at Penn’s Landing along the Delaware River, food shopping at Reading Terminal Market, specialty shopping on South Street, and of course site seeing in Historic Philadelphia.

The first floor contains the living/dining room area and a galley kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas range, microwave oven, full-size refrigerator, coffeemaker, as well as pots, pans, cooking utensils and dinnerware to make cooking and dining a breeze. The living room also has a sleeper sofa that pulls out to a full-sized bed and can sleep 2 additional guests if needed. The back door leads to a quaint brick patio with a table, two chairs, and plants and flowers galore creating a relaxed setting for an outdoor meal or simply to enjoy the outdoors.

There is a standard stairway with handrailing to the second floor loft where you’ll find the fully furnished bedroom. There are always fresh linens on the queen-sized bed, and a double wide dresser, a desk, and two nicely sized closets with plenty of hangers available for you. The full bath comes supplied with soap, shampoo, and plenty of fresh towels.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at Michael's place in Rittenhouse square was perfect. The accommodation is exactly as described and the attention to detail made our stay very comfortable and easy. Everything was very clean and neat; instructions were provided for everything, and the location is within walking distance to restaurants, downtown and all major sites. Thank you again, Michael!

  • Michael was an excellent host. He provided us with comprehensive information about the apartment in anticipation of our arrival; he very kindly allowed us to modify our booking to include an extra guest at very short notice, including parking; and the apartment itself is well-situated, clean, spacious and lives up to photos. All in all, a really great stay! Highlights for us included: he has a keypad system to enter the house, so we didn't need to worry about keys (hooray!); there are SO MANY tasty places to eat nearby; and the free bottles of juice and water in the fridge were the perfect welcome on a sweaty afternoon. Big thanks to Michael for having us to stay - we'd recommend his place unreservedly.

  • We loved Michael and his attention to detail. He covered all the bases well. The apt. was well outfitted, clean, secure and all directions were easy clearly stated. It's in a great location and neighborhood. Loved our stay and our host!!

  • I had a very nice experience staying at Mike's. The apartment was ideally situated in center city, close to restaurants and public transportation, and very clean and well-organized, including many amenities, from coffee to an ironing board. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • We were delighted with Michael's place it was perfect for my wife and me during our one week stay. Rodman Street is a quiet street conveniently located to Rittenhouse Square where there are fantastic restaurants. The attention to detail, cleanliness down to the coffee maker, water and juice in the fridge was perfect. He is an excellent host.

  • Great host. Mike always promptly returned emails, texts, or other messages I had about my stay. He also was very organized and provided a nice information packet about places to see during my stay. The place itself is rather quaint and in a great part of the city. The accommodation was very clean and everything I needed was available. Overall, great place.

  • We stayed at Michael's apartment for 4 nights in April 2014. There's a key-pad entry system and the front door leads straight into the small kitchen/sitting room. We didn't use the Garden patio, but it would have (email hidden) to sit outside for a morning coffee.
    Up the stairs is the bedroom and small bathroom. It (email hidden) for us, less than a 10 minute walk from Rittenhouse Square and a 30 minute walk to the Convention Centre.
    On arrival there's a wordy contract to sign on the table (sorry Michael, I didn't get a chance to read it all or sign it, but hope all was OK) and useful maps.
    We didn't meet Michael, and it feels like the place is run as a business rather than a home. It'(email hidden) in Philly.

  • Отличное место для остановки в Филадельфии. До дома удобно и недорого добираться на такси и/или общественном транспорте. Состояние дома полностью соответствует фотографиям и описанию на сайте.
    Michael тщательно готовится к приезду гостей - составляет подробные инструкции о пользовании домом, предоставляет информацию (карты, описание) об интересных местах.
    Спасибо Michael!

I've travelled a great deal for both business and pleasure in the United States and throughout the world and enjoy the big city atmosphere, but am also drawn to the historical landscapes of an area that help define the people and their culture. Highlights of my travels include, touring the Austrailian outback, discovering old world Europe in such beautiful locations as Prague, Budapest, Vienna, Paris, Cologne, Lyon, and Berlin, trekking thru a Tanzanian game preserve and hiking the snows of Kilimanjaro. I've gained quite a bit of experience as a guest and hopefully I am able to use that experience to (email hidden). Although low-keyed and laid back, I have an attention to detail that is geared towards making your stay in Philadelphia a very pleasant one. Whether your on business, on vacation, or celebrating a special occasion, I want your stay in Philly to be as enjoyable as it can be. When I'm not hosting or traveling, I try to keep up with my running, and thankfully Philly has some great running locations that make it pretty easy.
