  • A good deal in a quiet, beautiful location—right next to a cool home-brewing supply store and a great, inexpensive Indian restaurant.

  • This was a great stay. Everything was nice as expected. Both Sarah and Charles were very helpful and responsive. The nieghbourhood was awesome, nice places to eat, very well connected for local transportation.

  • It was a good experience, the place is clean, quiet, and pleasant . Unfortunately there was no time to meet Sara and Charles, however were very attentive replying the emails.
    Their house is in the suburbs, even though, 5 minute walking there is a train station that gets you easily into the city. The neighbourhood is quiet and you have option of 3 restaurants and a CVS.

  • I needed shelter and shower over a week-end in Philly and the room served me well. It is a spacious and affordable room, with clean sheets and comfortable bed. There was no A/C (not a problem for me) - I believe that the hosts put it on when it gets warmer. Things are arranged in a way that allow you to go in and out independently. The location (My. Airy) is a plus. I was quite busy and did not have much contact with Sarah and Charles, apart from some practical exchanges. They were kind and everything went well.

  • I had a such wonderful stay at the Sunlit Budget Traveler Art Loft. The room was better than expected and the location was perfect. Sarah and Charles were outstanding hosts that went out of their way to make my trip, a seamless and enjoyable visit to Philadelphia. I would definitely come back and stay with them again the next time I visit Philly.

  • I couldn't have asked for a better host, Sarah and Charales were the best. The room was simple but much nicer than any of airbnb places I've stayed at.

    December 2013
  • We had a great stay. Sarah and Charles were very friendly and welcoming. The room is small but comfortable. A great deal. We love the neighborhood - close to fantastic Indian food and the darling Chestnut Hill area. Easy parking and easy accessibility to get into and out of the room. The room was comfortable and they were kind and extra-thoughtful to offer a crib mattress for our girls to sleep on (we just had them on the floor with camping mats, initially). I loved that the bed had plenty of warm comforters on it and we were provided nice towels. You do hear the morning street noise, included city buses, but they warned about that, so we expected it. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Sarah and Charlie were wonderful to get to meet - open, accommodating and genuine. The bed was very comfortable and the room simple, yet met my needs. Despite a family full of activity celebrating and planning birthday parties, they were very respectful of privacy and not at all intrusive.

  • My Boyfriend and I are on a Trip across the USA. We went to Philly very spontaneous, Sarah and Charle's Room was perfect to stay for this citytrip. The Room is clean, quit and near the center. Thank you for sharing your Home with us!

  • My girlfriend and I arrived a little late on a Friday night. We didn't have a difficult time finding a place to park, finding a spot on the street almost right in front of their home. Sarah and Charles had gone out, but they gave us the code for the door so we could let ourselves in. The room was ready; neat and tidy with clean linens and towels provided. When they returned, Charles gave us a recommendation on a great local place to get dinner and a drink. The shared bathroom was clean and orderly. There was a little bit of street noise coming through the front-facing windows, but nothing that prevented us from relaxing or sleeping. There was absolutely no noise from inside the house itself. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much and consider it a bargain. We recommend Sarah and Charles highly!
