Check In
  • Faye and her helper did a great job of making us feel welcome. Faye's home is beautiful and comfortable. The neighborhood is great. Very centrally located and safe. Walking up to Rittenhouse Square on a beautiful day is a real treat.

  • This house was AMAZING!!!!!!! We loved the cleanliness, comfort and space! Excellent choice!

    June 2014
  • We had a lovely 5-night stay at Faye's beautiful home. We had family coming to Philadelphia for my daughter’s Drexel University commencement. It was so nice for the family to be able to congregate at one location instead of various hotels. The home is decorated very tastefully and was beyond our expectations. With plenty of space and two separate living rooms for families to spread out. The location was also ideal with the many restaurants and markets nearby. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • Faye is a fabulous host and this house is a gem. It fit six people with room to spare. It's beautiful, perfectly decorated, and has tons of character. The roof deck was the perfect place to enjoy the bottle of wine that Faye had left for us to enjoy upon our arrival. Thanks for a great experience, Faye!

  • Beautiful home, fantastic location, and great host. Faye was very responsive even though she was in Spain. Place was very clean when we arrived and great restaurant recommendations and so forth were provided for us as well. We will be sure to book again when we are back in Philly.

  • My family and I had a fantastic stay in Faye's gorgeous home. We were shown around by Honora on our arrival and she couldn't have been more helpful. The house was spotless, beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. Faye was very easy to communicate with, responded promptly to emails and very kindly allowed our 2 & 3 year old boys to play with her son's toys during our stay. The location was exactly what we were looking for, with so many amenities within walking distance. We hope to stay there again on one of our future visits to Philadelphia!

    July 2013
  • We had a lovely stay at Faye's house. We are family of 5, 3 kids, ages 9 to 5, and stayed at Faye's house for three weeks. The house was just perfect for us; plenty of room kids to move around and play, and privacy for the grown-ups too. The house is very kid friendly. Do prepare to walk up and down the stairs a lot. Faye is a great hostess. From day one, she was very quick in answering all my questions. She provided lots of good suggestions for kids' summer camps and activities. The house is so centrally located in a very upscale neighborhood. We really enjoyed a lot of good restaurants, ice cream shops and nice walks around the neighborhood. Faye really made our stay in Philly a very memorable one!

Film Costume Supervisor
I am a feature film costume supervisor who LOVES to travel! Husband is an economics professor who has frequent sabbaticals and summers off, so we are fortunate to indulge our wanderlust. We have a wonderful little boy who has acquired quite a taste for travel and loves checking out foreign food markets. More than visiting the touristic sights, we love immersing ourselves in the culture of our environment. We are courteous guests and conscientuous hosts, and we hope to meet like-minded people along our way.
