Guest access
Security code entry ensures flexible check-in/out without the hassles of a key.

Guests have access to entire 1st & 2nd floor as well as basement laundry and a small back yard. Residents in seperate, 3rd-floor apartment use the same building entrance.

High-speed, fiber optic WIFI network name and password are available upon check-in.

I'll send detailed, keyless entry instructions about a week before guests arrive. Feel free to share this information with everyone in your group, albeit discretely.

Other things to note
ACCESSIBILITY. It's 13 steps from the sidewalk into the front door. Once inside, there are no additional stairs to access the 1st floor, 8 steps down to the back yard, a flight of stairs up to the second floor and another down to the basement. Finally, step over a 6" lip to enter the 1st-floor shower.

NEIGHBORS. My 3-story building also houses a separate third-floor apartment with residents who adhere to the same quiet hours and other considerations as guests.
My place is close enough to the Art Museum that you catch glimpses of July 4th and other firework displays through the trees. Closing the doors/windows blocks out most sound. (I make ear plugs available.)
Finally, my home is on the route of the Philadelphia Marathon.

WIFI. High-speed wifi relies on a fiber optic network.

HOME PREP. The cleaning fee is used for a professional cleaning of my home between each stay.

HOUSEHOLD ARTIFACTS. This quiet, cozy, updated space is filled with artifacts, many from my own travels. While there are too many to note here, guests have expressed delight at discovering and reading about them.

*****Questions? Just ask. I'll answer as best as I can. I look forward to helping you enjoy the city I've come to love.

YOUR COMMENTS MATTER. I appreciate and use receive them. I regularly update my space based, in part, on what I learn from guests. Your feedback helps make each stay more enjoyable!

Location

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

The Philadelphia neighborhood of Mantua began as a getaway from Center City until trolley cars helped turn it into one of America's early suburbs. Mantua is diverse and changing, home to long-time residents and students alike. People who were last here 2 or 3 years ago easily notice change.

I make more current and historical information about Cozy Philly and the surrounding neighborhood available inside.

I love to travel and especially enjoyed extended stays in Cuba, Finland, and Uganda. Warm doughy baked goods, picturesque sunsets, and bicycling make me smile. Rainy days find me curled up with a good book and, occasionally, splashing through puddles.
