Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed here for a girls weekend getaway and had a great time. The house was just like the picture and had everything we needed. The location was perfect - so many bars, shops, & places to eat very close by. Phil was very helpful & responded to my questions quickly. Highly recommend!

    Response from Philip:

    Thanks Tawnya! You gals were great!

  • This was a great place for 3 generations of our family to stay together! The apartment was comfortable and amazingly located and Phil was helpful, flexible and gracious.

  • Phil provided clear and prompt information regarding our stay. The location, size, and layout of the apartment was perfect for our family and we enjoyed our stay!

  • Great place to stay in Philly. Phil was a great host. He was quick to respond to our questions. The place is located in a superb part of Old Philadelphia. It was just steps from the metro. We found that it was easier to use the Phlash to get around to the places that were too far to walk. There are numerous places to visit within a 10 minute walk. We loved it.

  • Really great place and just steps to the subway. He had the whole place all set up and clean for us. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat

  • Great experience and perfect place for us. We are 5 sisters, all in our 50's, 3 live in NYC, 1 in VA, 1 in TX, who were looking for a 3-day get-away together and Phil's place was ideal, and much nicer than staying in a hotel. The location afforded us wonderful restaurants in walking distance. The apartment was comfortable, clean, easy to just hang-out in in-between dinners, drinks, museums and shopping. Would definitely recommend. And, although we didn't have any kids with us, it clearly seemed like a children-friendly place. Thank you Phil!

  • A fantastic location. Great space with plenty of room for four. Your own private apartment close to Independence Hall. Within walking distance to Reading Terminal Market and plenty of restaurants.

    A safe, secure location for families.

    Highly recommend this place.

  • This was a great place - incredible location right next to Septa (subway) stop and walking distance to lots of historic sites - independence hall, liberty bell and betsy ross house to name a few. The apartment was a great space, great for our family with 2 kids. Philip was extremely responsive and helpful pre-booking and during our stay when we had minor questions. Thanks and if we return to Philly we hope his place will be available to stay again!

  • Phil's place is in a wonderful location for walking or public transportation. It is spacious and can easily accommodate 6. It's a great place for kids too. 2 single beds in a separate bedroom and great video games!! Phil was very accommodating and made our arrival and departure simple and smooth.

  • This apartment was all Phil said plus! LIght-filled and spacious. We were 5 adults and had a great time. Apartment is on major bus and subway line, if that counts. Many very cool restaurants right in the neighborhood and many historical sites(Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House) plus waterfront nearby. Also movie theatre showing first run independent films (Amour, Hitchcock,) nearby. Phil was super helpful. I mentioned that this was our destination Xmas and he left up his Xmas tree so we could enjoy it! Phil sent many super dining suggestions and we enjoyed every one he suggested. My daughters and I are hoping to plan another trip to use Phil's space later this year. I was very happy with this apartment and Phil was a super host.
