I'm an architect by training, focused on writing and strategy for social change and thought leadership organizations. I love running, biking, exploring, etc.
John's place was great. Very clean and in a great location. He is a great guy as well. Very flexible with prompt communication when necessary. Our only trouble was that there was no ice in the freezer. So if wishing to have libations you will need to grab ice before you come!
Very nice accommodations. Near to everything we needed, safe, and very clean and spacious.
We did not get to meet John as he himself was traveling, but he made everything easy for us with detailed instructions.
We stayed at John's loft for 4 nights while in Philadelphia for some job interviews and had an absolutely fantastic time. It was clean, unique, safe, comfortable (probably more comfortable than my own apartment) and very welcoming. The washer and dryer and kitchen were very convenient to use. The loft itself is in a perfect location - aside from the $7 train fare to/from the airport, we were able to easily walk to all sights and attractions we wanted to see (including fantastic restaurants like morimoto, amada, and reading terminal if you're a foodie.) John was very responsive and instructive with suggestions for things to do. We would gladly stay again and highly recommend it to others.
We had a fantastic time staying at John's loft. The location is ideal and John's design sense made the stay extra special. I 100% recommend John's loft for a stay in Philly. Thanks John!!
My stay at John Cary's apartment was excellent! The place was beautifully designed, exceptionally clean, and located right in the middle of everything Philadelphia has to offer. John was also exceptionally helpful; he gave us restaurant recommendations, ensured that our stay went smoothly, and even gave me race tips (I was in town to run the Philadelphia Marathon). I highly recommend renting John's place and, during my next trip to Philadelphia, I hope to stay there again.
