NO ELEVATOR FOURTH FLOOR WALK UP
@@@ this is a 4th floor walk up, but we have staff in the office m-f 10-4pm to help with your bags, and the 4th floor means it is very quiet and no one is above you! Plus the bedroom is in the back of the building and very quiet!@@@

Like the new implant of new york's shake shack!

Parking is very difficult in Philadelphia. This is a city after all. There is free parking on the street from 8pm-8am, but after that it is only free for two hours during the day and they will ticket you immediately. The TV show parking wars was based filmed in Philadelphia for this reason. Parking garages are plentiful and nearby and range anywhere from 20-50 a day. You do NOT need a car to experience Philadelphia. Live like a local and leave the car at home!
This is a private apartment you will not be sharing the bathroom or kitchen.

We liked it so much that we're going again! The location is really good. And the apartment is beautiful. Really clean bathroom.
Andrea's apartment was the perfect place for a nice weekend away, and I must say the bed was more comfortable than my own! The location was also amazing, Rittenhouse Square is a wonderful neighborhood. When I go back to Philly, I know where I'll be staying!
The flat was very well equipped with everything you need and is in a great location (pretty much everything in central Philadelphia can be reached by a 15 - 20 minute walk, most much quicker). It's an absolute bargain at the price. Check in and communication with Andrea in advance was quick and uncomplicated.
Unfortunately I have to agree with another reviewer who referred to the "general shabbyness" of the apartment. While the kitchen counter, bed and toilet were clean, the rest of the flat looked like it hadn't been cleaned in several weeks. Some of the walls are in need of a good lick of paint, hooks in the bathroom as well as the shower curtain kept coming off. The bed was uncomfortably soft due to a mattress topper on the old mattress. It took me several attempts to receive a reply from Andrea as how to work out the shower (put the shower on cold and wait a while to get hot water). She has not replied to my Air Bnb message regarding the issues above to this date.
Again, it's a case of "you get what you pay for", but based on the reviews here and the pictures I had expected something different. It's a shame because it's just little things. It's visible that the apartment has been "well loved" over the last years :)
Andrea was really responsive to my questions and getting us the check-in info. Her apartment was very cute and well located in a charming neighborhood. We would definitely use it again.
Andrea was very helpful from the get go. The place was great and just as described. It was in the perfect neighbourhood and it couldn't be a better location for seeing the Philly sites.
Andrea was so easy and pleasant to work with! She took the initiative to email me instructions on how to get into the apartment, where to leave the keys, where to take the trash, etc. The pull out bed was already setup when we walked into the apartment. Everything was clean and as expected. There was some confusion with the hot water (figuring out new showers is the worst), but she called me right back (even though she was boarding a flight!) to let me know the trick to get the hot water going. The area was so nice and there wasn't a moment when I felt unsafe. Checking out was so simple and seamless. Andrea is truly a professional, and I highly recommend working with her!

Airbnb is a great way to live like a local. I have a range of properties from luxe to bargain. I'm also always happy to help with any questions! I also offer bargains for long term stays and repeat guests!
I have been interviewed for articles on airbnb in the philadelphia inquirer, slate, open forum, and featured in apartment therapy.
I've lived in Tokyo, DC and the Pine barrens. I have traveled all over. My favorites are Nashville, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Toronto, and Maine.
I have lived in Philadelphia since 2002. I grew up visiting Philly as well. So, I know all the touristy stuff along with the cool stuff. I know the best places to eat in Philly. I know the places to miss as well! I'm a prolific yelper...
