About this listing
Nestled in the Brandywine Village neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware, you'll be walking distance to downtown Wilmington and the Brandywine Park.
Ideally situated for those visiting The First State - so close to world-class museums, gardens and entertainment. Also convenient for business travelers visiting our corporate capital - bankers, lawyers and the like (before you ask, yes, I have wifi).
I offer nightly, weekend and multi-night stays as well as discounted weekly and monthly stays (price calculates automatically). If you're looking for future dates not currently open on my calendar &/or an extended stay, message me for availability.
Sleep comfortably in your private room on a queen size bed with a Sealy Posturepedic Luxury Plush Super Boxtop mattress. Your bed is freshly made with soft 100% supima cotton sheets (the "cashmere of cotton"), 100% organic cotton blanket, cotton duvet with warm, cozy comforter inside plus fluffy hypoallergenic pillows.
This 3-story Victorian era home was converted into apartments (my 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment takes up the entire 2nd floor). With hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, 9 foot high ceilings and lots of natural light you'll feel right at home.
Full use of the entire apartment home - including the living room, kitchen, dining room, shared bathroom (towels & toiletries provided), washer/dryer (detergent provided) & screened in porch. 32" TV with basic Comcast TV service and On Demand. Free high speed WiFi access (password provided upon arrival). There is plenty of free street parking available on my block.
Free breakfast/anytime snacks are provided - help yourself to the items I typically keep stocked in the fridge/pantry: orange juice, milk, fresh fruit, eggs, yogurt, toast, bagels, oatmeal, cereal, pancakes etc. You're welcome to bring your own food items & store them in the fridge. You can sit on the screened in porch to have your morning coffee/tea/hot chocolate (Keurig maker & K-cups available for you to use).
Interaction with Guests
I was born & raised in Wilmington - plus even worked for the tourist visitor center - so I'm just the person to help you make the most of your time in our state as well as the region (you can easily take day trips to NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore & Washington DC). Plenty of guidebooks & pamphlets provided for you to browse as well.
In the mood for something to eat? Just a few blocks away you have a variety of delicious options. Choose Mikimotos if you want the best sushi place in town. Or visit the Washington Street Ale House for good burgers, etc & a huge on tap beer selection. More of a fine dining person? Visit Domaine Hudson - known for their wine list. Of course the Presto coffee shop is also right there if you just want a latte, smoothie or light snack/sandwich (they stay open til 10pm Sun-Thurs & 11pm Fri/Sat).
About the park: You'll be staying steps from the southern end of picturesque Brandywine Park. Walk through the mile-long free public park which runs along both sides of the river and offers 178 acres of walking paths, gardens and footbridges. You'll encounter stands of Japanese cherry trees, formal gardens, noted sculpture and architecture and the Brandywine Zoo. Follow wooded trails to Trolley Square and Alapocas Park.
Centrally located and easily accessible to major highways (less than a mile to I-95) and shopping/dining on Route 202/Concord Pike (there is NO sales tax in Delaware!). Right on DART bus public transit route and just 1.5 miles from Amtrak/SEPTA station and Greyhound bus station. Only a 20 minute drive from the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). Depending upon your arrival time & my schedule, I can pick you up from the bus/train station (no charge) or from the airport (surcharge).
Other Things to Note
**I DO have cats & a small dog - during your stay, they are confined to my personal bedroom. If you &/or your travel companion have pet allergies, please take this into consideration before making a reservation.**
Did I leave something out? Please feel free to ask.
I look forward to meeting you!
Mi casa es su casa! I want you to be comfortable during your stay, so you're welcome to put your feet up, eat or drink in any room and, of course, sleep in!
Just a few rules:
NO GUESTS - I'm happy to have you stay (of course!) but ask that you don't invite others over at any time.
NO SMOKING - Smoking is NOT allowed inside my place or on my screened in porch (but by all means, go outside or on the downstairs front porch).
NO PETS - I'm very much an animal lover but can't host any visiting pets since I already have a dog & two cats (who are kept in my bedroom during your visit, unless, of course, you'd enjoy their company).
