As a host, I have been in the service industry for 16 years. I own a local cafe' and have been a landlord since 2000. I pride myself on providing a space that makes people comfortable, feeling like they belong there. I have lived in Philadelphia since 1993, and consider myself somewhat of an expert! Please feel free to ask for directions or guidance if you need it! My family and I have lived here for 4+ years in our separate apartment. I look forward to meeting new people and offering a space that is comfortable, attractive, clean, private and ideally located.
Our suite asks for a minimum of 2 nights, but we will accommodate a single night stay for $125.00 Sunday-Thursday, $145.00 Friday or Saturday. Additional fee of $15 per person after the first 2 guests, but children under 12 stay for free. Commencement is a high demand time, and our rates are 160/night from check in Friday to check out Tuesday. Other high demand dates will show varying rates depending on the event. Our check in/check out times are set to allow us time to change sheets, clean up and put out fresh towels- if you need some flexibility, let us know! We will accommodate you if we can! If you need a cleaning service during your stay- it is $45 per cleaning. If you would like laundry service it is $10 per load. Please leave the room as you found it- tidy and organized!

No smoking, no parties, no pets! Please treat our guest suite with respect and care!
My family and I have lived in West Philadelphia for 9+ years. We moved here from Fishtown where I used to own and operate a local cafe'. I sold it in 2016, and have moved on to renovating houses and other interesting properties. I am very involved in real estate so please feel free to pick my brain about neighborhoods or properties. I have been a working artist for many, many years now- both teaching and building architectural stained glass. I own a historic fire station and am converting it into art studio spaces, to house my new glass studio and several other spaces for other artists. I have 2 children who are wonderful, smart and funny, 1 lovely cat(domestic short hair calico) and one adorable pup(Catahoula Leopard/Australian Shepard mix). I am fastidious about our beloved pets, so you would hardly know they were here, except for the occasional paths crossing with me and Coco(my pup) on our many, many walks during the day! They stay in our separate apt and have never been upstairs in the guest suite, so come with confidence. We love to travel, love good food, and generally love life in the city. A beautiful family, good friends, a fantastic neighborhood, a nice life... I am blessed for sure!
