The Space

Welcome to Philadelphia! We live on the second floor of a large brownstone in South Philly just a couple blocks away from the Italian Market.

The available bedroom is in the rear of the building, so it is nice and quiet. It gets beautiful light in the morning and throughout the day. We have a full-sized bed along with a dresser with an empty drawer for your use.

There is a small flat screen TV and a DVD player in the room. We don't have cable, but do have an eclectic selection of DVDs.

The bathroom is shared with us, but the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the apartment for added privacy. There is a washer/dryer in the apartment that we'd be happy to let you use.

IMPORTANT: Kitchen only available for boiling water, re-heating and storing food. Sorry!

Our neighborhood is in a very walkable section of South Philly just minutes away from Center City -- a nice five to 10 minute stroll to both the famous Italian Market and the trendy East Passyunk area. There are so many awesome places to eat. Also, South Street is a short walk north, about 10 or 15 minutes.

There is also one bike available if you prefer to explore that way! Just ask us for details :)

Parking is usually pretty easy on our street and has no time limits. There are several bus routes just a block or two away that would be very convenient for getting to Center City and any of the historical sights in Old City. The Broad Street subway, which takes you to the sports stadiums and the center, is a 10-minute walk west of our apartment. The best thing about Philly its its walkability factor!

  • Charlene and Sam were amazing! I really enjoyed their place for me to stay. I was able to get out and see the city and feel safe and good about where I was staying. Traveling alone that was very important to me. They left suggestions for things to do and places to see which was great :) I honestly didn't spend a lot of time at the apartment because I had so much I wanted to do but it was great for the whole stay!! Oh and parking...I thought it would have been tougher being that it's right in the city, but I was able to find a spot right outside the apartment!!! Huge plus for me!! I would recommend anyone to stay here and I most likely will be returning to the city again to see even more of this lovely historical place!!

  • Carlene and Sam were amazing hosts! I had a super comfortable stay with them which was much needed after all the noise of NYC.

    Sam met me at the apartment and showed me the different keys and where everything was located inside the apartment. My bed was big and comfy and the room they have for guests is adorable! They have a giant map so you can pin where you are from, and they have lots of maps and pictures on the walls from their travels.

    I loved the food and activity suggestion list that was on the desk, and the maps of Philly they had were very helpful. The location is super quiet, but its a bit far to walk to the tourist sites but the buses are reliable and great.

    I had a nice time chatting with both girls in the living room and they recommended a cab company to take me to the train station when I left. Carlene and Sam were both really nice! They made me tea and were very accommodating. Their apartment was super cute and clean too. I would love to stay here again!
