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

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.

It was like coming home. Home was exactly as listed and advertised. Internet and cable a must have for our teenagers tied to technology. Comfortable bedding. Clean and inviting. Plenty of space. Full kitchen available for preparing meals. Paper supplies and forgotten condiments available. Spacious bathroom with shower and bathtub. Plenty of towels and linens available. Additional half bath for impatient children. Extra play space, family room in the basement. Washer and Dryer in basement for convenience of families with children, or those with an extended stay. Walking distance to the train running every 30 min. Walking distance to the park with basketball courts and play equipment. Walking distance to the grocery store, and other small businesses and unique restaurants. Friendly and safe neighborhood. Will refer to friends and family visiting Philadelphia's historical areas or those visiting with family in the Philadelphia area. Great house for a great price. Owners are very kind, friendly and accommodating, such a pleasant experience. Thanks so much for your hospitality!! Sincerely, Karen and Dan White

Had a great time, all the comforts of home

Sharon is very organized, the directions for everything were very clear... C

The place was very clean, two bathrooms - one upstairs and one on the basement level, there was a tub and a separate glassed-in shower, good pressure.

Big place, outdoor seating, plenty of space, kitchen had everything you would need. Loved the Keurig coffee maker, nice touch. Neighbors had a small block party Saturday afternoon while we were there (which she'd told us about in advance), invited us to join in when we were off to sight see, really super nice.

There is a formal living and dining room, nice eat-in kitchen, family room in the basement, full laundry in basement. Well done, and thanks! All the girls loved it, WAY better than staying in a hotel!

Terrific property for a family

This is a lovely, well-tended home in a nice tree-lined neighborhood, close to Philly and very close to Chestnut Hill. We found the home spacious and well-appointed. Nice linens, well-stocked kitchen, plenty of paper goods, etc. All the thoughtful things that make a stay easy and comfortable. Good internet service, lots of tvs for different family viewing. Room airconditioners were fine most of the time, though the hottest days were a little warm downstairs, but the fans keep the air moving pretty well. All in all, we were extremely pleased with our stay and with the helpfulness of the owners leading up to our stay. We would definitely think about staying again on another family visit! Thanks for everything Sharon!
