Several bedrooms are available in my house, great location!

Also, I can rent the road bike for you if you need!

There are some galleries, sweet and cute bakeries, bars nearby!

Guest access

Lynn and Syd are busy, sometimes absent, but nothing important than you have good stay here. It may have other guests in the rooms, please keep the place relatively quiet.

Interaction with guests

If we are at home, we are going to welcome you in person; if not, after you make the reservation, you gonna receive a check in msg which includes so many details you might need.

The neighborhood

It is not the center of the university city, and also I won't say this is a fancy top level neighborhood. My neighbors are friendly, most of them are long term house owners, newly moved in scholars and college students.

There is a Police station across the street and the area is patrolled by guards of University City.

Getting around

Though I cannot say it's the center of university city, just look at how convenient it is!

Only 5 mins walking to the 40-market Street subway. 15 mins walking to 30-market amtrak train station. 5 mins walking to the University of Drexel, 10 mins walking to Upenn, 15 mins walking to HUP! 20 Mins walking to Art Museum! If you wanna go to center city, just 5mins walking plus 8 mins subway time!

Other things to note

Visitors: If you have visitors, please make us informed first and with my permission to get inside the house. This is the basic manner and respect for your host.

Free wifi, free water and tea. The tea room is on the corner of the bathroom on the second floor, help yourself to fetch the ice water from freezer in the kitchen.

Anticipate a clean, quiet room with few amenities. No television but efficient wifi. Hike up to third floor might be a bit much for seniors.

I stayed at Lynn and Syd's while I was in Philadelphia for a conference at University of Pennsylvania. It was easy walking distance to the campus, which I appreciated. Though I didn't meet them in person, Lynn and Syd were warm and communicative which made the check-in very easy. They provided tea/coffee and snacks which were a very nice touch. The house was quiet and I felt comfortable and well-rested over my time there.

As a host:

Welcome to stay!
Syd and I live and work internationally, he was a scientist but now is a semi-business man. I am an Urban planner and designer, work as a housewife in Philly on the weekends but also work in Connecticut full time. Both of us are busy. We have several properties in different locations. We hope can host you in person, and your comfortable stay is our best wish! However, please forgive us in case something we missed.

We offer serveral rooms with the convenient location on airbnb. I think it's a good idea to offer them for the people who really need.

My families don't make much noise and we are not party animals. Hope you are the ones who really trustful, neat and won't disturb us either.

How can we tell you how much we love our home and how lovely it is! Hope you will like it too and enjoy your trip when you stay here!
As a traveler:
My husband and I are enthusiastic travelers.

My family has changed several cities and countries during the last 10 years. Even after we got married,we still enjoy to explore new places. When we are travelling, AIRBNB seems attractive and interesting----great location, affordable, clean, more comfortable and the most important is just like at home.

Life to us is kind of mystic travels, sometimes you have no choice but accept the challenges.

Keeping the room clean and organized wherever we are! :D
