Interaction with Guests
I travel quite a bit so I may or not be there during your stay. If I am not there, my housemate, Pierre, coordinates everything. If you need to get a hold of him and I am not there. you can email him at (email hidden)
Also, this is a very social house, with people coming and going. As mentioned before, there are 4 bedrooms, so you will likely meet others during your stay. I cater to young adults who are traveling on a budget (you will see I am one of the lowest prices in town). People in the house tend to be international graduate students staying for short stays, and there is often many languages spoken. If you are looking for easy and an affordable stay, this is the room for you. There are great conversations to be had and guests tend to be social and environmentally conscious people.
If you like outdoors there are lots of trails for hiking right behind the house, but still conveniently located downtown. The house is conveniently located in Park Forest (residential neighborhood) with easy access to a grocery store (Wegmans), restaurants (Ottos), shops, bars, campus, bowling alley and downtown.
Public transportation (W bus) is on the same block with direct service to Penn (email hidden)e bus stop is 3 houses down from the house. In addition, there is the N bus line, which is about 2.5 blocks from the house with even more options. It takes around 20 minutes to get to campus via bus.
Also, there is a bike route to campus, which takes 20 to 30 minutes to get to campus.
Other Things to Note
I recently bought this house in 2011, and I have been doing a lot of renovations on it. The inside has been complete, and I am currently doing work on the outside installing a new tiered garden, underground greenhouse and a pond in the back. Solar panels have been installed in 2014, so you can enjoy your stay in sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
There is no smoking in the house.
In addition, I have very flexible leasing. If for whatever reason, you are not happy with your stay, you may cancel at any time. The reason I do this is to ensure that there is warm comfortable environment in the house for all.
