The place was very spacious and located very central in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Having a kitchen was definitely a plus. I actually never met the host and all communication took place exclusively by email so if you are hoping to get recommendations on how to find your way around the city or have the occasional friendly chat with your host, I recommend you look elsewhere. To me, it didn't really matter as I knew my way around and was in town for business, anyway.
The location is perfect. Just 1 minute walk to Rittenhouse Square. Great restaurants, shopping area, convenience stores and grocery stores are all in walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The apartment is clean and large. Michael was on the trip when we visited but he left a note and everything was set before we got there. Has everything we needed for one week in the apt. I will definitely recommend Michael and his place.
5 out of 5 stars!!!! Stayed at Mike's place for 3 days in March and the pictures do not do it justice. It is located right in the heart of Rittenhouse Square and close to everything you could possibly want to do. Mike was very accommodating and left us a nice note to welcome us to the place. Very safe and perfect for what we needed and wanted. Hopefully this place is available every time I visit Philadelphia. Would 100% book again.
The home was beautiful, imaculate and containing all that one would need for your time on LBI. Gourmet kitchen, wonderful entertaining space, comfortable beds, lots of closet space. Had a problem with the internet and the owner promptly took care of the it.
Georgous house right on the bay, so even in bad weather you were still on vacation!
Mike and his girlfriend were wonderful guests, they even showed up with a yummy healthy and delicious pumpkin bar (do u share recipes:~)). Great people working to make a difference in the world...
