I liked the house location, not far from the hwys. The house was spacious, clean, organized, beautiful, and cozy! It provided plenty of towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, dishes, and basic kitchen essentials. Christine made my family and I feel at home. She was very welcoming and made herself available to our needs.
The house was in a great spot, very warm and relaxing, and a great space. Christina was fantastic, she was available and helpful throughout our stay. Traveling with two little ones and staying at a hotel is a little hectic and cramped. Christina's house made this trip to Pennsylvania relaxing and enjoyable it felt like we never left home. Thanks Christina
Although our host was out of town, she made sure we had everything we needed before she left, and even checked in on us via email and text once we arrived. The house was everything it was advertised to be; a great place for a family to stay in a beautiful neighborhood.
We booked Christine's home, June 2 to June 9, 2015, to be on location for our son's wedding at Haverford College. Her home was all that we expected; it is large, well laid out and so convenient to all stores and to attractions in Philadelphia. The 3 1/2 bathrooms made our visit with 2 other couples a breeze. We even hosted a small post wedding brunch in the backyard. Christine was very responsive to all my questions and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed to get ready for our son's big day. Everyone who visited us complemented us on finding such a perfect place to stay. I am just sorry that I don't have another occasion to stay there!
Host was excellent. Very responsive and very friendly. House was just as pictured. Perfect for a wedding weekend!
Christine made us feel very welcome as she left some goodies in the kitchen which stocked with a good amount of kitchenware. There was plenty of toiletries, towels and bedding. The listing of the property was accurately portrayed in the pictures. It is an older home that Christine has started to renovate and rejuvenate. There are newer light switches and fixtures, an amazing amount of electrical plugs everywhere for our electronics, fast free internet, AC and Heater worked great and a good security system that we did not use as the house is located in a great neighborhood with lots of food within about 3 minutes of driving. Try ACME grocery store's bakery and Mama's Pizzeria's Philly Cheesesteak. Yum. At this time, the house will probably not work for you if you are looking for a modern, super clean home, although I believe the house will get closer to this over time as Christine cares about her house. The house feels homey and feels like you can sit back and relax and settle in and we were happy to spend the majority of our 4 days in the house as we were in town for two college graduations and rest. The house does not currently have large HD TVs, which was a slight disappointment for my mom and college graduate but we didn't come to Philly to watch TV so for us it was fine and cable does have lots of channels. The house is situated on a corner. The front side is on a fairly busy street but the street noise was never an issue and actually was good for freeway access. The other street leads to surrounding houses which are beautiful and families are outside playing and was fun to walk around. Most of the rooms were bigger than I expected except for the kitchen and the upstairs bathrooms which are average size and normal to this era of home. There is a downstairs master with good size, newer bathroom and large walk-in closet with a smaller adjoining family room that is private. Upstairs there are 3 more bedrooms all good size, one with a washer dryer unit behind a folding door, full bath and also a small walk-in closet. A shared bathroom upstairs for the other 2 bedrooms and another 1/2 bath down which was new. The stairway is a bit steep (not abnormally so), but for severely walking-impaired I would have them stay in the bedroom downstairs. This was our first time using airbnb and we were happy we chose Christine's home. We would stay here again if we were in Philadelphia. This house is perfect for larger families.
Christie's house was perfect for our trip to Philadelphia. It's close to the city yet far enough away as not to feel like your in the city. The accommodations were perfect for the eight of us. Christine was great to work with and responded immediately whenever I contacted her. I would definitely would stay here again.
