Philadelphia Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located within walking distance to the renowned shops, and restaurants of Main Street Manayunk, the 'Home with a View' is close to Philadelphia's many historical sites, major universities, and museums. The Liberty Bell and Valley Forge are equally accessible. Major transportation venues such as bus, rail, and highway, are easily reached.

Make use of the professionally designed kitchen or use the grill and relax on the deck. Breakfast is especially nice outside in the morning sun. Getting supplies is easy as a full size supermarket is about a 5 minute walk or one minute by car.

Nearby Main Street features art festivals and bike races as well as great restaurants and shopping. Fireworks on the Fourth of July and New Year’s Day are visible from the deck or upstairs bedroom. On a clear day one can see the RCA Tower in New Jersey. Situated at the peak of Manayunk, the Ben Franklin Bridge and views of the Philadelphia Skyline are almost always visible.

The three bedrooms contain a comfortable queen size sleigh bed, a full size guest bed, and a thick futon which provides a restful sleep for two full size adults.

If it’s a cheesesteak you want, nearby Dalessandro’s is considered one of the best in the city. Chubby’s across the street from Dalessandro’s, made the cover of Philadelphia Magazine rated as the best chicken- cheesesteak in the city.

Come and enjoy your stay and be near everything Philadelphia has to offer.

We hope you enjoy our warm and friendly home which we had lived in for close to 15 years. We chose this house because of location. It is close to everything our city has to offer. A trip to center-city to attend the Philadelphia Orchestra, Ballet or Theater takes 15-20 minutes. It's the same distance to the convention center and the historical sights. Mass transit is just steps away from the front door. Great shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

What many people don't know is that Philadelphia is home to the nation's largest park: Fairmount Park. A walk down nearby Forbidden Drive with a stop at the Valley Green is simply romantic.

We love Philly and everything it has to offer, but we also enjoy the nearby Pocono Mountains. It's about an hour to the Poconos for whitewater rafting, fall foliage tours, or skiing. The Atlantic City expressway will take you to the Jersey Shore in about the same amount of time. So come and enjoy our city, the history, the mountains, the shore and everything in between.

Keith Newman purchased this townhome in 1998

Philadelphia is a vibrant and historic city. From our home with a view one can easily visit the world renowned Philadelphia Museum of Art and run up the 'Rocky' steps. Equally close is the Franklin Institute and the Academy of Natural Sciences/Natural History. The nation's first zoo and foremost primate center is just as accessible. Many of these places are visible looking out the back window. or standing on the deck. Philadelphia has many 'Bring Your Own Bottle' Restaurants which makes dining out pleasurable and affordable. Call me for some of my favorites.

A well appointed kitchen and deck make dining in or entertaining pleasurable. From the deck one can see the Philadelphia skyline including the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Manyaunk has many special events and the home is located 1/2 block from the most exciting turn in the Manayunk BIke Race featuring world class racers. The Eco-Arts festival in the fall and the Arts festival in the Spring attract upwards of 100,000 to Manayunk.

'Home with a View' is located on a quiet street in the safest neighborhood in the tri-state area. With its great restaurants, shopping, and its proximity to Center-City and multiple transportation venues, the Manayunk Neighborhood is a great place to stay when visiting Philadelphia.

Lovely Mid Oct stay

I'd rate this 4.5 stars. Nicely appointed townhouse in a great funky neighborhood with lots of nice shops and restaurants nearby. 15 minute ride to downtown. Owner and property manager are very nice, very helpful and easy to work with. House was immaculate and very comfortable. Kitchen is well supplied if you want to cook. I stayed with 4 other guests and we'd stay here again. Price is very reasonable as well. Highly recommend it.

Loved the house

We are a family of 5 (3 children), that needed a home away from home for 2 weeks. This house provided all that we expected and more! It had everything we could wish for including the wonderful books, the fully equipped kitchen and the well designed rooms. Our kids loved the place and we could get to the city in 20 minutes. We will come back again and highly recommend the house to families who look for more than a hotel for their stay.

Manayunk, Philadelphia June 2013

For a start the pictures and description are accurate, which is not always the case. We have used HomeAway and VRBO since 2006 and with some exceptions have been happy with the rentals. We are a family of 4; Mom, Dad, Amy 31 and Darragh 21 so a variety of tastes and needs to be satisfied there! None of us were disappointed. There is plenty of room to get together but also the house is big enough to allow for everyone to 'do their own thing'. The front porch is great for getting a feel for the neighborhood and the back deck for the views of the city.The house was spotlessly clean, well appointed and maintained.The uphillwalk from the (Septa) train, is great for working up an appetite for dinner, but the bus is at the end of the block, 1 min. away. Google the neighborhood for great restaurants, but the house is so inviting, you will probably decide to spent your evenings 'at home'. Oh yes, Dantonio's on the corner does great pizzas!! Gerry, Mary and family.

The home is equipped with Direct TV satellite television. The upstairs television has a built in DVD Player, while the downstairs TV has one attached.

The home offers an office/den with an all in one Printer, high speed copier, and laminator. The desk is designed for two people to work at comfortably. Parsons chairs could be turned around adding extra seating to view the 42' television.

There are four bikes in the garage (two off road bikes) which guests should feel free to use. As they often go long periods without use they may need air.
