Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved this apartment, the views from the roof top deck are amazing. It was wonderful watching sunrise over the water view and sunset over the city view. Susan was so great sending transportation and other details before our arrival. The apartment is luxurious and cosy at the same time and so close to the historical sites. It's perfect!

VISITING FOR FAMILY WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
The condo was excellent and owner Susan and her assistant Amanda were very helpful and organized. There is lots of room, very comfortable, and the roof deck is awesome! Check out the restaurant across the street called the Twisted Tail. The food is top notch, they have wiskey tastings, and there was a live blues band for dancing on Wed night! A great place to stay - you don't need a car!!

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
WOW, what a great place. It is hard to add to other great comments about this property. If you are looking for a location that has it all, this is the place. We have stayed at a lot of VRBO's in the past, but this one is one of the best. The location is perfect, you can walk to everything. If you can't find it within a ten minute walk, you don't need it. The restaurants and bars are right outside your door. We discovered the WAWA next door, something we don't have and wish we did. The condo itself, was perfect for my wife and I. It has it all. If you are going to Philly, don't look any further then this location. This is the one.

STUNNING APARTMENT, EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was a stunning location to stay in for seeing Philadelphia. The apartment is really well equipped and very comfortable and clean - and the views from the room terrace are breathtaking on a warm evening. We met the owner Susan who could not have been more helpful. Can't recommend it strongly enough.

LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD CONDO

  • 5 of 5
Lovely apartment fully equipped to host a dinner party for our son's birthday, which was our primary reason to rent an apartment as opposed to a hotel room. The rooftop deck is a bonus with beautiful views of Center City and the Delaware River. It didn't hurt that we picked a perfect fall weekend with a full moon! Apartment description is accurate and the place is clean and well-maintained. This is a lovely neighborhood with plenty of restaurant choices and close to historical sites.

GREAT PHILLY CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this property for several nights around the 4th of July and recommend it highly. It is exactly as described, and the photos are accurate. The condo itself is very well appointed and comfortable, but the amazing feature is the roof deck, with views of the city in one direction and the river in the other... a great place for breakfasts, happy hours, and dinner under the stars. The owner is extremely helpful and provides clear and complete instructions on everything, plus advice on restaurants, groceries, historic sites, getting around town, and much more. The neighborhood is eclectic but safe, with good restaurants, interesting bars, Penn's Landing, the Italian Market, Society Hill, a Farmer's Market, and Independence Hall, all a short walk away. Philly has a good bus system that is also a short walk away, and taxis are plentiful right outside the Condo, so having a car is optional. We loved our time there and we look forward to our return.

EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for your comfortable apartment and all the tips you gave about the city. We have appreciated the home and the city. We ate at Fork on Market Street. It was delicious. We hope that we'll be able to come back.
La localisation est parfaite, près de tout, l'appartement est super confortable, tres bien equipé et la vue est imprenable. À recommander fortement.

Located at the corner of South Street and Second Street, the penthouse is very close to many historic attractions, including historic Philadelphia, the National Constitution Center, the original Ben Franklin Post Office, the Visitors Center, Betsy Ross House, the National Liberty Museum, the National Museum of American Jewish History, and so much more. All are within short walking distances.

South Street is one of Philadelphia's liveliest and eclectic streets. Business people saunter down the block from nearby Washington Square West and Society Hill to mingle with their more Bohemian counterparts for lunch, while visitors flock to the area to savor their first Philly cheese steak. Mirroring this diverse mix of fun-to-watch pedestrians is a wonderfully eclectic lineup of over 300 shops and more than 60 eateries, cafes and bars. The area’s restaurants reflect the various ethnic flavors of several nearby neighborhoods. There are also several performance venues featuring fringe theater and live music.
