The Space

The house is a couple of blocks north of 35th and Spring Garden Street. 1.6 Miles to The University Of Pennsylvania (a 15-20 minute walk.)

One full-size bed in the guest room for two, one queen size futon bed in the living room fits two, and two twin size beds set up in the lounge = six guests for an affordable stay.
Only one reservation at a time.

While this is not a luxury estate, it is the perfect home for those who are simply looking for a nice, cozy place to stay for an affordable price.

The house is a row home with a full-size kitchen, living room, bathroom and guest room available for use.

Adrian and I live in this house year round and host each night. Airbnb is a high priority for us, so we take this very seriously. Our house is set up to accommodate each guest while providing each reservation the privacy that they need.

Guest Access

The guest room has a full-size memory foam bed, with clean bedding, a TV (television) with Netflix and Amazon Prime, a closet, and a dresser. There is a door with a lock and a seasonal fan. This room fits two guests while the living room can fit four.
The bathroom holds all essential amenities, including fresh towels, filtered shower water, shampoo, soap, and travel needs.

The kitchen is available for use. You are free to move anything around that you need to, and I just ask that you put all food and plates away (in cabinets or refrigerator) after use. I tend to leave items in this room, but if you need me to move anything, I will.

The living room is not only used for leisure, but it provides space for additional guests. The couch is an Ikea Beddinge Futon that fits two guests. There is also two twin size air bed for reservations over four (4). Bedding will be available for each guest, but feel free to bring any items you may need.

Interaction with Guests

We host every night of the year so we are very used to and comfortable with having guests. Adrian and I will do our best to make sure you have everything you need for a cozy environment.

There is a chance we will not be there for your arrival. You must read and respond to the message sent you before arrival. This message will explain everything you need to know.

The Neighborhood

There is free parking in front of the house.

The house is located in University City, one block north of Powelton Village. Drexel and Penn University Security Guards monitor the neighborhood at all times. For security reasons and by Airbnb regulations, I am not able to give you the exact address before you book your stay.

The area is monitored by campus police in addition to the Fire Department that is located nearby. The area is a mix of college students, homeowners, and the typical Philly corner kids who look more intimidating that they actually are. I have never had a problem in this area, nor have my previous guests.

Getting Around

Transportation to and from the house is very simple and manageable. Please use a website that features mapping directions ( g oo gl e), type in thirty-fourth and spring garden as your destination to get an idea of the location.
The house is located near University City, West of the Schuylkill River.
- It is a 20-minute car ride from the Philadelphia International Air Port (a $32 taxi ride), 6-minutes from 30th St Station for Amtrak, Mega/Bolt Bus, Trains ($8 Taxi Ride from Amtrak Station) and 15-minutes from Center City ($14 Taxi Ride.) The area is surrounded by public transportation (SEPTA) and plenty of free parking in front of the house. SEPTA rides are $2.25 each way.
