The Space

A well decorated bedroom in a town-home located in the rapidly growing South Philly neighborhood of Graduate Hospital. The room has hardwood floors and features a single brand new Queen sized bed draped with 800 thread count linens and sheets. Room is equipped with flowers, a crystal chandelier, and is decorated in a modern vintage motif. Room has central air and heat along with a stereo system with CD player. Guests should expect access to the shared modern kitchen filled with all modern appliances and dishware. Guest also have access to their own bathroom steps from their bedroom with Jacuzzi and modern amenities. You will share the house occupants (owners) who are a young Professional married couple. Maximum one couple. No Smoking, No Pets.
House is kept very clean at all times so guests must be very clean. Fresh coffee or tea is usually provided to guests.Our home is four blocks from major subway line and only one block to public buses into Center city and all access to the sights and sounds of the city. Rittenhouse Square is only a 15 minutes walk away. Home is around the corner from new bar restaurant American Sardine Bar, Sidecar and OCF cafe. The Grad Hospital/Point Breeze neighborhood is rapidly growing so there is a great deal of construction during the day. Neighborhood is rapidly changing and becoming a hot spot for artists, young professionals, and whiskey bars due to its proximity to more established neighborhoods.

A small dog is located on the premises but will not interfere with the guest experience.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Krista and JR were relaxed and helpful hosts. They made us feel very welcome and it was also nice to be met by Oscar, the extremely friendly dog. The room was nicely set up, and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was large, and we felt like we had plenty of privacy during our stay. It was easy to get downtown either via the subway or by foot.
    The American Sardine Bar which is literally around the corner was a great place to relax and enjoy some fantastic food and drinks. It has a great atmosphere. I suspect if we lived in this area, we would be (email hidden)!

  • Krista and J.R. were great hosts to my parents who were visiting the country for the first time. Their apt is really nice and cozy for a couple. Plus, the puppy-Oscar pretty much seals the deal. I'd recommend this place to my friends coming from out of town.

  • The Urban B&B Oasis is a must if you are visiting Philly! Krista and JR are terrific hosts! My husband and I had a great experience and it was super easy to get where we needed to go. The bus stop is one short one-block walk away and in 10-15 min you can be at the steps of the convention center. The room was inviting with a bright and welcoming atmosphere, plenty of space and a cheery "jazz-inspired" decor. And oh my! The sheets were divine!

  • Awesome home, very comfortable. Krista and her husband are very friendly people and very welcoming. The neighborhood can be a little intimidating, I'd think twice about walking around at night.

  • Krista and JR were great--they responded to our last-minute request and greeted us warmly on a cold Philly night. The bedroom was lovely, and we felt like we had a lot of privacy on the second floor all to ourselves. The location was great--close enough to everything we wanted to see, but with street parking actually possible. Thanks for the hospitality!
