Description

Luxury suite, a spacious sunny room with private bath on the third floor. Extra air mattresses can be added for more people for 20USD per person. WiFi is included. Convenient to Center City and the University of Pennsylvania. Free unlimited parking.

Some people find my neighborhood to be hip and cool and their favorite neighborhood in Philadelphia, although, it's not for everyone. I can promise that you will be cozy and comfy in your sunny furnished room. It has a private bath, and is in a large house, which is across the street from a lovely park.

The reservation includes free wifi, a queen size bed, desk, chair, large closet, and a lamp. A mini-fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker are also in the room for your use. The room is spacious and holds plenty of storage for a longer stay. It is a non-smoking, clean, quiet, well-maintained house that sits on a quiet friendly street. Only all natural products are used. Quiet, cleanliness, resourcefulness, independence, and no smoking are important. All rooms are cleaned weekly. Animal lovers only.

The house is a five minute car or bus ride to the University of Pennsylvania and only ten minutes to downtown. There is plenty of free street parking right in front of the house (very rare in the city). The 42 bus conveniently picks up at 51st & Spruce. Also, the 52 bus will drop you off at the high speed rail which will take you to center city in record time. Bike rental stations can be found throughout the neighborhood. And, a newly renovated laundromat is just three blocks away. Sorry, but there is not a washer or dryer, and no kitchen for guest use.

The neighborhood is called University City and is full of fun and exciting things to do. I will recommend many things to make your stay enjoyable and edifying. It is close to the universities and a vibrant mix of culture, restaurants, cafes, museums, and shopping.

Overall, simply my single favorite Philly Airbnb place in this price range - #1 of all 6 I've stayed at over the past 3 months! I was pleasantly surprised by several different things about this place after arrival; that is, IMO it's markedly better in reality than it comes across in its listing. This is listed as "Private Room", but IMO it's unarguably "Entire Home". I guess the confusion is that within the building, there are other rooms that share a bathroom; however in contrast this suite is separately locked with an exterior-style door, and has its own private bathroom along with it behind that door. Refrigerator, microwave, etc., but like I say, most important is that it's a legitimately separate unit that would in a hotel be rented as its own room, or in a condo would be rented as its own apartment. Anita is great, very friendly, accommodating, honest, and a genuinely interesting person who I'm glad to have met. I had an abnormal arrival time and she was great about it. The room is very private and extremely comfortable, safe, perfect size, etc. Admittedly some of this may be my personal taste, but I just really fell in love with this place and would love to spend a much longer time there! The neighborhood and exact location are also absolutely perfect for me. Again, there is some personal taste involved, but I loved the luxury of being right on the park, and basically it's the perfect balance as far as being just far enough away from center city to enjoy all the benefits like free parking, quiet, great prices, and friendly residential atmosphere, while also leveraging the benefits of still being remarkably close to center city transportation-wise, robustly safe crime-wise, and so on. Without any doubt, my highest recommendation - thanks again, Anita!

The room was just as described--simply furnished, airy and clean and very quiet, in the back of the house. Anita was welcoming and did her best to make our stay comfortable. We enjoyed talking to her about Philly and getting her perspective on the neighborhood, which we found to be lively and friendly and very walkable.

Anita fue una gran anfitriona. Reservamos la casa el día anterior por la noche y obtuvimos una respuesta rápidamente. Está bastante alejada del centro de la ciudad así que hay que tomar transporte público. Si tienes coche es muy fácil aparcar por esa zona. Ahora está reformando la casa. Cuando yo estuve no había cocina pero si había un micro ondas y una mini nevera en la habitación. Por si alguién es alérgico, en la casa hay 2 gatos.

Anita was a very gracious and kind host. She accommodated my group last minute, and made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in the Philly area. She also has very cute cats :)

I am originally from New Jersey, and I am an artist, so I enjoy looking at art and creating it. I also love reading, writing, antiques, dancing, and music. That is just to name a few.

My father was a neurologist, who was born in Italy, so I grew up with an appreciation of different cultures, as well as a passion for art and science. My mother was an American artist, which made for an interesting life.
