A delightful, safe Philly riverside neighborhood near excellent public transit and walking distance to recreational activities, restaurants, library. Hop on the train, and arrive at "The Cradle of Liberty" in 15 minutes.(phone number hidden).

Le logement

Unique Philadelphia neighborhood: walk to restaurants, theater, library, river, train. Experience one of Philadelphia's classic neighborhoods. Everything within reach.
Three rooms listed as Home Away From Home I, II and III, each with double bed, air conditioning, ceiling fan, wireless internet, shared bath. We have an intimate little backyard and a covered side porch for rainy days which guests are free to use.

Safe neighborhood: Many walkers, bikers, runners. River trail one block from the house is about 8 miles around and is usually full of park users. Wissahickon Creek trails nearby are just breathtakingly beautiful. Walk, run, or mountain bike and brunch at the historic Valley Green Inn.

Restaurants within 1 - 4 blocks: Chinese/Sushi, Northern Italian- Fiorino (byo), upscale pizza- In Riva, and several pizza parlors, Indian (byo), Franklins, Billy Murphy's, Falls Cafe, coffee shop- Epicure Cafe, coffee shop- Trolley Car, Small, historic theater- Old Academy Players with plays monthly (check schedule).

The house is in a mixed use commercial/residential area of the neighborhood.

Philadelphia U. is about 5 blocks away with a lovely campus to walk through.Eastern U. Falls Campus is a few blocks away. Drexel Medical School Queen Lane Campus is about 5 blocks away.

One mile from the "happening" little neighborhood of Manayunk.
10 - 15 minutes by car or train to Center City Philly. Train 1/2 block from the house. Several buses within 1 block-R, K, 61, 1.

On street parking. Can park within one block of the house. But it's a great place for using public transit. Philly is known for being a very walkable city also.

Philly, like all cities, is unique as are all of its more than 40 neighborhoods. Savor the flavors.

Top places: National Constitution Center, Carpenter Sq., Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Elfreth's Alley, First Friday Arts, Museums, Orchestra, Theater, Ballet, Opera, many outstanding restaurants (ask if byo) and make dinner reservations, 9th St. Italian Market, Reading Terminal Market, Philly cheesesteak at Jim's, Pat's, or Geno's. Everyone stops at The Rocky statue to take their picture in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and then run up the steps like the champ himself. The newest museum, The Barnes, has a very valuable art collection and is well worth the visit but requires reservations.

Drive, at night, along the West side of our Schuylkill River to see the boathouses all lit....now that is a memorable sight.

Drive out to Amish country in Lancaster County or visit the outlets in Reading, visit Longwood Gardens (spectacular).

There are just so many places and things to do in Philadelphia. Your host, Roberta, will help you should you need it. And she might even "let you in on" her favorite Portuguese, Polish, or Columbian restaurants.

Please see "House Rules".

p.s. If you are planning to visit the world renowned Barnes Foundation Museum, YOU MUST HAVE RESERVED TICKETS.
Note: We also have two other rooms in the house for rent.

Accès des voyageurs

East Falls Library, Mexican, Indian, Italian, Chinese/sushi, pizza, coffee shop restaurants, 2 train and 4 bus lines, Schuylkill River recreational activities, Old Academy Playhouse, Philadelphia University campus, Penn Charter and Germantown Friends track.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Guests can call, text , email or see me flitting around in the morning or evening. Check in time is somewhat flexible, but we must establish the check in time beforehand as I have a full time business and frequently have evening plans.

Hello. Welcome to my home.
Please enjoy your room, the shared bathroom, kitchen, washer/dryer, side porch and back yard. Let me know if anything is not working properly or you need help with something.
Here are some helpful suggestions and requirements about using this nearly 100 year old house, being a good guest, being a considerate neighbor.
The house is not perfect. We keep the prices at a reasonable rate. While we love to receive 5 star ratings, the ratings are quite different from a 5 star hotel. You should expect a 5 star stay in your very clean, comfortable room. The house is accessible to public transit and restaurants. A perk is being one block from the river where you can walk, run, bike, boat, fish, sit and watch life passing with the flow of the Schuylkill River (Hidden River in Dutch). We will appreciate a 5 star rating if one is earned. And you should appreciate a 5 star guest rating as well. Both you and the house/host will be rated at the end of your stay. According to Airbnb, you should leave your room in the same clean way it was when you checked in.
FIOS wireless internet: Z2JM6 or Z2JM6-56 password: tiny(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)burn
House Rules:
Cleaning: Your room should be very clean when you check in. We even wash the pillows. Once you move in, we do not clean your room again until you leave unless you request professional cleaning which is $35. Please keep your room, linens clean. You can use the washer/dryer between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Purchase detergent at the Rite Aid. Clean the filter after every dryer use. Keep water in the lint vent container on the floor.
Clean up after yourself. Clean up hair, spills, crumbs. Please keep the toilet free from bodily substances. The bathroom is shared. We do have the bathroom professionally cleaned weekly, but we expect all guests to leave a very clean bathroom after every use. Always consider the other guests by leaving the bathroom clean.
Kitchen: We do not professionally clean the kitchen. We expect our guests to clean the kitchen after each use. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY FOOD UNCOVERED. DO NOT LEAVE GARBAGE IN THE SINK OR DRAIN. EMPTY THE TRASH DAILY. KEEP THE SINK AND STOVE CLEAN. IF YOU SPILL SOMETHING, SCRUB IT UP PLEASE!!. The kitchen is shared. Please, please do not leave a dirty kitchen for the next person. Be aware of crumbs dropped, and pick them up. We supply you with dish detergent, cleaning supplies, sponges, and hand towels for drying hands and drying dishes. We do not supply paper towels.
Stained Linens: If you stain the linens, towels, comforters or rugs, or other items in your room, you should expect to pay a replacement fee or a commercial cleaning fee starting at $35 for linens, $150 for comforters, $350 to clean rugs and higher. If the stains cannot be removed, you will be charged to replace items.
Trash: Trash day is Monday. We can put trash cans out to the curb after 5 p.m. on Sunday. Take trash out daily to the backyard trash can/bins. Recycle. Rinse all glass, aluminum before discarding. Crush plastic bottles. Newspaper goes into paper bags or tie with string. Any food product should be bagged and taken outside to the trash can with lid. You can temporarily use the kitchen trash can with lid until the end of the day or next morning. But do take it outside, especially in warm temperatures.
Lights, Electric: Turn off all lights and electrical appliances when you leave the house. You can leave the ceiling fan on to circulate the air. The outlet in the bathroom sometimes needs a reset. If the lights go out in the bathroom, reset the outlet above the sink. The light in the kitchen is halogen. It gets very hot. Turn it off as soon as you leave the kitchen. Consider the other guests. Everyone is on a different time schedule. We do leave on the lights in the foyer, front and side of the house. We leave on the living room lamp on the round table. We leave on the night light in the bathroom. All other lights and appliances should be shut off when you go to bed and/or when you leave the house for more than one hour.
Neighbors: Do not sit on the front steps. Sit on the front or side porch, the backyard or the kitchen to study, read, talk on the phone, etc. Do not talk too loud. Do not park your car below St. Bridget’s Church. Park above the church. Parking goes all the way up to Conrad St. but is restricted during the school year. Read the parking signs. The Parking Authority is a regular visitor to East Falls. House sharing and Airbnb are newer concepts. The homeowners are not all happy with this concept. Respect the neighbors and their privacy.
Overnight Guests: You can have an overnight guest with consensus. All guests plus host would have to agree. The fee is $25 per night for an overnight guest. We will supply the guest with towels.
Restaurants: Trolley Car Café (breakfast & lunch); In Riva (gourmet pizza, tapas, liquor); The Major (Italian hoagies); Falls Café (lunch, dinner, snacks, liquor); Shan Chuan (lunch & dinner) sushi & Chinese; Billy Murphy’s Irish Saloon; Fiorino (fine dining- reservation) Central North Italian BYO; Laxmi Indian BYO; Franklin’s American; Golden Crust or Frank’s Pizza (standard pizza and salads/fried food); Fried Chicken.

Groceries: You can buy some basic items at The Sunoco, The Major and Rite Aid. Supermarkets are 2 miles away, on Ridge Ave., Fox St., and City Ave. or Monument Rd.
Transit: Norristown Regional Rail, K, R, 61, 1, 32 Queen Lane Regional Rail

A short walk: Philadelphia U, Drexel Medical Queen Lane Campus, Post Office, Old Academy Theater, Historic Falls Library, Grace Kelly’s childhood home, the track at Penn Charter or Germantown Friends.

Farmer’s Market: We have one under the twin bridges between In Riva and The Trolley Car Cafe every Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. until Thanksgiving. Enjoy fresh farm to table fruits, vegetables, eggs. Try the Jerk Chicken if that vendor is present. It’s spicy, juicy, tender, and delicious.

Roberta is an incredible host! When I arrived she was there to greet me and show me around the house. She would always respond right away when I would call/text with any questions. And if you're lucky enough to try her food, she's an amazing cook! The room was great - better than I thought it would be. It was very clean - she even washed the pillows before my stay. The room is very quiet but the apartment is located very close to restaurants and bars. It's also 1 block from the train and bus stops so getting into center city is simple. The house is cleaned at least once a week - only thing the tenant has to clean is their own room. The inside is extremely quiet - I never heard noise from neighbors or anyone else staying in the house. Roberta is always ready to help and to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible, but she leaves you to do your own thing and gives you complete privacy and independence. I couldn't have asked for a better 3 month stay in Philly!

home away from home is the perfect description for this room. I stayed here for one month, and could not imagine a more comfortable, hospitable, and enjoyable experience. Roberta is incredibly welcoming and friendly, and goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable. She is honestly one of the sweetest people I have ever met. The room has its own mini fridge, AC unit, coffee maker, desk, and lots of closet space. Everything works great & the bed was very comfortable. Roberta made sure everything in the room was continuously stocked and cleaned, including shampoo, water, and fruit. The house is very quiet at all hours, and is partially secluded from the main house, including its own back entrance, which gives you some privacy. There is a large bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and shower that is separate from the main house and shared only between you and potentially 1-2 other guests. Overall, my stay at Robertas room was better than I could have possibly expected, and in all honesty it was hard for me to leave.

Roberta is the consummate host! I had a potentially difficult situation with starting a new and demanding job and then not starting a new lease until August. I was hoping for a Home Away From Home, as the title suggests. It was exactly that. The room is more spacious than even the pictures give it credit for. The bed is the perfect size and very comfortable. There's ample closet space to house my work clothes and even a small fridge, which was a huge added convenience. The room is tucked away in the back which affords it more privacy and quiet, which was exactly what I was looking for. The A/C unit in the room is quite powerful, and there was never a suffering moment in this hot summer (from California, so this is actually hot for me). On top of that, Roberta is so very thoughtful in what she provides for the living space! Towels, shampoo and conditioner, tp, eatingware, and there's even a nice shower and washer/dryer. If that wasn't enough, Roberta is simply pleasant to interact with. She has an obvious interest in getting to know others and she is so thoughtful and considerate. Her amazingly high standards for providing a great living space is just so rare; I've only seen that in one other person, and that's my upcoming landlord. Did I mention that she washes not only the bed covers, pillow cases, but even the pillows themselves! She has an outside cleaning service that cleans up each room after each use. For everyone traveling to Philadelphia, I just can't see a better experience to be had than here at Roberta's place. If I didn't want to live on my own, I could see myself living here for not only the rest of the year but the remainder of my 3 year stay in the city. Thanks for all of your consideration, kindness, and hospitality Roberta!!

Stayed here for 35 days while moving into town. Super clean room in a great location. Roberta went out of the way to ensure that she wrote down what to do, where to eat and spends time speaking with you on anything about the area. If your willing to walk a block parking is super easy. Place is as described in her description.
