Great time!

  • 5 of 5

The place was in a perfect location for walking for restaurants, the convention center and bars. Had a washer dryer (major plus). Margot and Rob were very helpful and accommodating. We needed some help and they were over with in 15 minutes! We also accidentally forgot a watch on the counter and she offered to mail it home to us. We will definitely stay again if we visit Philly! Thank you!!!

Great spot in central Philadelphia

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at the apartment and really enjoyed our stay. The location is very convenient. The apartment is on a narrow lane between two main streets so it's quiet. The apartment is very well equipped with kitchen wares (including some basic add ones like cooking oil, coffee for the coffee maker, tea, etc.) and appliances. The apartment is open and airy with lots of space. There's a second bedroom we didn't use that has a washer/dryer. The TV has a DVR in case you want to record shows while you're out and a sound bar for Bluetooth music. The neighborhood has lots of nice restaurants and bars, antique stores, access to the subway nearby, and it's walking distance to the central business district. In the park around the corner there's a Philly bike share station if you want to explore the city on two wheels. We were really pleased with the place and are thinking we'll return again on future trips to Philadelphia.

Nicely done.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was overall satisfactory and functional.

Pricing was appropriate.

The bed in the second bedroom was not acceptable as all it had was a couple of mattresses thrown on the floor.

Both bedrooms could use ceiling fans with light to improve circulation as neither bedrooms have return vets and when the doors are shut there is simply no way for air to rewrite to the main return in the hallway.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were not satisfied. I feel compelled to set the record straight on the second bedroom. The bed is in fact a sofa bed on a frame, not a "couple of mattresses thrown on the floor." The bed was made for the guest prior to arrival, so this may have been a fact that was overlooked. The unit is accurately listed as a 1BR + den, implying that the second bed is not going to be as substantial as the bed in the primary bedroom. We endeavor to make sure potential guests understand this when they inquire about the unit.

Great property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were in Philly for the Craft Brewers Conference and stayed at this property in Center City. The location turned out to be great. It was a short (15 min) walk to the convention center but far enough away to be quiet. The townhouse is in excellent condition and everything was perfect. This was our first VRBO rental and we may never stay in a hotel again when there are options. We did not need our car but found a garage a block away on 11th street that housed it for $19/day. Communication and coordination with the owners was very efficient.
