Small cozy room with twin size bed has free wifi, a nice desk and chair, lamp, large wardrobe and mirror. Friendly, safe area with shopping.
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 in my large house across the street from a lovely park.
The reservation includes WIFI, a twin size bed, desk, chair, large wardrobe closet, and a lamp. A mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker are also in the room for your use. The room holds plenty of storage. 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. Also, bike rental stations can be found throughout the neighborhood. A spacious newly renovated laundromat is just three blocks away. Sorry, but there is not a washer to use in the house.
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.

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.
