If you are looking for luxury and much much more than a hotel room then you have found it. This high end apartment is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a traditional 3 story Row House that's over 150 years old. It has all the bells and whistles of any new construction but with the bones and structure of old Philadelphia. With over 300 different stores and restaurants within a 5 block radius, it doesn't come more perfect Philadelphia than this. Located over the oldest Tattoo Studio in the district, this apartment aims to please with class, style and an artistic flare that you will find no other place.
Walk up the first flight of stairs to the 2nd floor and you enter the living room and kitchen area. The kitchen is amazing, it has granite counter tops with full granite back splashes. All upgraded stainless steel appliances from the Thermador Gas stove to the Bosch Dishwasher, a convection oven/microwave and full sized refrigerator. There is breakfast counter/ bar area that opens to the living room and a separate built in dining area. The kitchen has exposed brick though out and hardwood floors to go though out the kitchen and into the living room.
The living room has a big beautiful bay window with an enormous piece of stained glass that is over a 100 years old. There is a beautiful architectural columns and all custom built furniture through out. There is a large screened TV with a Bose surround sound, DVD and VCR. There are two different pull out sofa beds on this living room level. One is a traditional sleeper sofa that you would imagine that pulls out to a full sized bed.
The other is a super comfy sofa also pulls out to an upgraded queen sized bed. This is not just any kind of pull out bed either. This is the best and most comfortable sleeper sofa money could buy. It's from American leather and it has a tempur pedic mattress. No bars, no coils and no paper thin mattress to hurt your back.
So if you are two couples traveling together, neither couple will get the short end of the stick when it comes to sleeping comfort
Walk up the 2nd staircase and into the master bedroom and master bathroom. The master bathroom is unbelievable. There is a gorgeous pedestal sink, a stand up shower with multiple body sprayers and a triangle shaped Jacuzzi hot tub that's big enough for two. There is dim-able lights and also a TV in this bathroom, in case you like a little entertainment with your bubbles and long hot soak.
The master bedroom is just that, built for a master, it is not small by any measure and takes up the same amount of space as the living room bellow it. There is a queen sized heavenly bed that not only has an upgraded mattress but upgraded plush pillows and high thread count linens to go with it. There is a Victorian ladies vanity table and two separate closets, both with double doors. Did I mention the massage chair??
If you are looking for all the high end comforts of home and way more room for entertaining with family and friends then you have found the place to call home while visiting the historic city of Philadelphia.

My wife and I along with our three children stayed for 3 nights during our family vacation to Philadelphia. Our stay was very enjoyable and everything was as described/promised within the listing. Our contact Kate met us on site and provided all of the needed information as well as tips for the area. Nearly every attraction was within walking distance and our kids are VRBO believers vowing to never stay in a hotel again. We have great memories from our trip and the accommodations added to the experience. I would certainly recommend the property and would gladly stay again when in Philadelphia. Our sincere thanks to Anna & Kate!
In no particular order:
- The apartment is clean and well-appointed—modern and eclectic.
- The neighborhood is happening.
- Restaurants and nightlife galore and within walking distance.
- $20 all-day parking is right around the corner.
- Great communication with the host.
- Philly is more authentic than so many other US cities. A revelation.
- Highly recommended.
This space was absolutely perfect. The quirky decorations fit our trip amazingly well-- my sister was getting married at The Shambles (2nd and Lombard) and so location was the main driver for our stay. We got ready at the apartment and traipsed down South Street in our wedding finery. (I'll send Anna photos of the wedding dress in her space, the photographer loved it).
It is a little loud-- you can hear the shop below and the street, but for our trip that didn't matter. It was still a restful place between dinners and errands and spacious enough that my boyfriend had space to himself as the ladies got ready downstairs. The breakfast nook is cozy and the art work everywhere is way better than most rentals, though the Predator statue did snag the tulle of my dress at one point :P My brother had no complaints about the couch downstairs and the bed was super comfortable upstairs.
Anna's assistant Kate met us a little early and showed us around-- everyone was really so so nice. The folks in the shop downstairs were friendly as well. If South Street intimidates you, probably not the best place, but if you used to go to shows in high school and love the atmosphere of South Street but want a place to escape to, it's perfect.
Thanks Anna and Kate!
We really enjoyed our stay in Philadelphia in Anna's condo. Kate waited to meet us when we arrived and we got in at almost midnight, thank you Kate! In terms of the area, if you want to be located where you can walk to most places of interest, where the area is alive at night and where you can get anything to eat, this is the condo for you. In terms of the condo, it was very clean and had everything you need for a short visit. We did find the lighting a little dark (caution to men having to shave; my husband cut himself twice!) but maybe we just didn't figure out all the light switches....there are quite a few! I would definitely recommend Anna's condo....so much better than a hotel!
I stayed here for a conference in town. I had absolutely everything I needed! It was beautifully furnished and the amenities were amazing. Relaxing in the jetted tub was the perfect end to the day. I think my favorite part was the bed! It was amazingly comfortable and with the bedroom being on the 3rd floor, you heard no noise from the tattoo studio below and minimal street noise. I hope to stay here again soon!!
I was fortunate to find this condo last year, which far surpassed any expectations I had. This year I stayed for an additional 3 days, knowing how at home I had felt.
Upon arriving Kate explained all appliances, tv & fan clickers, etc, making the settling in process so easy As she left Kate said "call me anytime, day or night, if you have any problems". She actually meant that
Philly is a walking town, so car isn't necessary. Bus and Uber is all you need, unless you venture out into the suburbs Restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, are all located in the neighborhood
I was lucky enough to see Anna, the owner - as well as her hubby. Both are delightful and very helpful. It's more like staying at the home of a friend than a rental property
Next year I'll definitely stay again -- wonder if I could eek out a few more days and make it a full 2 weeks Hmmmmm
Do yourself a favor -- stay here!!!
Only exception is if you have issues climbing steep stairs. The charm of stairs in this 150+year old building could be the only drawback
We Are Located Only a Few Blocks from Independence Park, Independence Hall, Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell. We Are Just 1 Block Off All the Excitement of South Street and So Close to Italian Market that You Can Smell the Delicious Foods from the Window
