Family Vacation Philly/Sesame Place

  • 4 of 5
This was a great spot. The house was fine, we didn't use the basement much as it wasn't as well ventilated or temperature controlled as the rest of the house, but overall this is a fairly substantial townhouse and was able to deal with 6 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 young kids just fine.

The neighborhood was fantastic. The neighbors were all very welcoming, and helpful. We had folks move their cars so I could take a closer spot to get my young daughter out. The neighborhood also has a labor day bbq and I wish I had known as we'd have stayed an extra day or two to enjoy the folks on the street.

The location is great. 5 minute walk to the commuter rail, 40 minute drive to Sesame Place, 20 minute drive to the Zoo. So we were able to take advantage of a lot of stuff while we were there.

The kitchen is amply stocked. I couldn't find extra sugar while there, but it wasn't a big deal. We left a lot of condiments as well, though I don't know if those stay or get rotated out. Grocery stores are within 2 miles, lots of on street parking. There was one spot in the back of the house which we didn't know about until several days into our vacation. No big deal, but had it been winter it would have been nice to know it was there.

Laundry facilities were useful as we kept up after the towels and our own clothing. The washer-dryer are clean and in good working condition. As others have mentioned there is no dishwasher (not a big deal), or disposal. So be prepared to rotate dishwashing duties.

I'd stay again in a heartbeat as the neighbors and location are great.

Clean and ready for us

  • 4 of 5
We were pleased to walk through the front door into a cool, clean house on a warm and humid day. The neighborhood was OK. We were close to main streets so access to highways was OK. Fully equipped kitchen and plenty of luxury linens. The only downfall was the fact that the .5 bath was in the basement and full bath with both a shower AND bathtub (which was very nice) was on the second floor made it hard for someone with mobility problems, like me, to continually climb the stairs to use the facilities. The one inch mattress really doesn't fit the 'sleeping arrangements' as stated in the basement. Other than that, we'd highly recommend the house. If you have no accessibility problems and don't need the sleeping futon and mattress, this is definitely a great house for you!!

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5
Nice play with a well equipped kitchen and other basics like laundry detergent. It's about 20 minutes to the downtown and near a metro line. Well worth the price.

Great for families visiting Philadelphia

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect, comfortable stay for our family. Sharon quickly responded to our questions leading up to the trip. The house was clean and completely ready for us with a well equipped kitchen for meal preparation. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and our children enjoyed playing on the sidewalk when we weren't out exploring Philadelphia. We were able to find many different routes downtown that were all only about 15 or 20 minutes long. Our children were delighted to find a table in the basement with paper and crayons, games and puzzles. Sharon has anticipated all a guests needs and has well prepared this cute house for them.

Big and well equipped!

  • 4 of 5
We liked a lot staying there. The heat was fine. Since we have to cook our own food, we were afraid of finding a kitchen which not attended our needs, but it was quite the opposite! It had all the kitchenware we needed and more! Sharon was nice, everywhere there were notes with tips on how to use things, trash, etc.The only thing we didn't enjoy much was that there are no food disposal (insinkerator) nor a dishwasher. It is good to say that the rooms are in the first floor, so it may be not a good place for handicapped people. Besides, the arranged time for leaving was 11 a.m., but we've got late. About 11:30 they entered the house, without knocking or ringing the doorbell. We think it was rude, since we were still using the house. They could have at least knocked at the door...

JUST LIKE STAYING AT YOUR AUNTS HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for an extended weekend at this home. If you prefer a B&B over a hotel, you will like this property. It's very homey and roomy. We slept two adults and five kids with no problems with plenty of room for a few more downstairs. The kitchen is well appointed with all of the necessary services and utensils. It's a short walk to the train station. We rode the train into Philadelphia to do some sight seeing. While we arrived and left in a car, it's possible to arrive and depart by train. There is an ACME grocery store about 10 minutes away by foot. If you love architecture, there are some very amazing houses in the neighborhood. We enjoyed walking around and looking at the historic homes. There is a lot of stuff all over - which is why it felt like were staying at a relative's house - but no relatives, thank goodness. On the plus side, Sharon was excellent in communicating with us. We had no issues or problems and everything in the listing -- including the photos are very accurate of what you'll get. We would not hesitate to stay there again if our travels ever take us to Philadelphia. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.
