Our hosts very nicely offered us to stay in the house instead of the apartment, because we were 5, and it was perfect for us. The house is very comfortable, and not too far from the city center.
Accurate description. Clean Apartment. Would stay here every time I was in the Philadelphia area.
Honestly Mary's home is nice and spacious as described. But the neighborhood is something one should be very wary of ahead of booking this place. We also had difficulty getting to the right house but Mary was helpful when I called! They seem pleasant.
The home is as pictured—everything is pretty new and clean. When we arrived we found that there was only an air conditioning unit in the living room, but no AC in the bedroom. Being the middle of July, it was too hot and humid to sleep in the bedroom without AC or at least a fan. We contacted the host about this issue, and they were very receptive and offered to install a wall unit in the bedroom the next day (into our 3-day stay). Hopefully they will keep the wall unit there and it won't be an issue for future guests.
The home is actually the top unit of a duplex, and the bottom unit is listed on airbnb as well. Our friends who were in town for the same wedding that we were just so happened to be renting out the bottom unit, which worked out very well for us! This information could be helpful for other large parties who wanted to stay next to each other.
Families with babies and small children, be aware that the staircase leading up to the unit in inside the front door, so a baby could very easily tumble down it if they were not closely watched. We were traveling with my 10-month-old, but I still didn't consider this a huge deal as we weren't expecting the place to be baby proofed of anything and just kept a very close eye on her or kept her in the pack-n-play.
Parts of West Philly are very nice looking and parts are very rundown (even just a couple blocks from each other). This block was more rundown, but the unit itself was kept up well.
Spacious, attractively decorated top floor (3rd) apartment. Conveniently located in a residential area next door to a tram stop which is 20 mins into town. Unfortunately the visit was in the height of summer and air conditioning wasn't sufficient to cool into the bedroom with a very comfortable bed and the sofa bed in the cooler living room was uncomfortable. Modern and clean kitchen and bathroom. Would recommend staying here but perhaps outside of the summer months.
La maison est très proche du centre ville au premier abord ont dirait un quartier malfamé mais franchement il n'y a pas de problème les gens sont sympa et nous n'avons eu aucun problème ni notre voiture.L appartement est très bien ont a eu un petit problème de petites bêtes mais les propriétaires l'ont de suite réglé ils sont d'ailleurs très à l'écoute et sympathique.
