Why Rich - Property Manager chose Philadelphia

This property is perfect for anyone visiting the city for a short getaway, a concert, festival, or even someone coming for business, etc. Its in the heart of everything and close to lots of nightlife, cafes, interesting shops ... but its also cozy and on a quiet tree-lined street so you can easily relax after a day of exploring or meetings. Everyone has loved it!

Shabby place in great location

  • 3 of 5

The listing for this poorly maintained apartment is misleading in terms of the description of the property and the amenities. The description said it is renovated -- well, maybe in in the 1970s but certainly not in a recent decade. There was no heat in the bathrooms, and the master bedroom only received the faintest amount of heat from the living room - a real issue in the winter. (The manager offered to supply us with a space heater but it never arrived.) There were numerous signs of neglect: The handle on the refrigerator door was missing. A bathroom door was rotten and it's latch wouldn't close. Tiles were loose in the bathroom floor. The carpet was dirty, old and ragged. Light bulbs were out and there were no replacements. The towels were not what I would call "hotel quality" as they were described and there were no wash clothes. The laundry room in the hallway between this apartment and the next was so cluttered with shoes, bags of laundry and other stuff that we had to move everything around to use the machines; then the dryer left lent all over our clothes because the filter had broken in half and just been stuffed back in (rather than replaced). There were other signs of disrepair that would only take a handyman an hour to fix if anyone cared to arrange it. The mattresses are extremely hard foam and all 6 of us had backaches in the morning. That said, the location is fabulous for South Philadelphia. There were ample plates, glasses etc in the kitchen. Except for the carpet, which needed a deep steam clean if not replacement, the apartment was clean and tidy. All in all, if the place were better cared for, if the amenities improved and the heating system were upgraded it would be a nice option for staying in South Philly. Until then, I don't recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and we apologize for any inconveniences. This stay does not seem to be the typical experience for our guests. We encourage our future guests to view the pictures and read the other reviews to get an idea for the apartment's value, location, size, and quality. The minor repairs mentioned were taken care of immediately the following day and we encourage our future guests to inform us immediately of any concerns so that we can respond to them more promptly. We can usually take care of issues the same day (especially minor things like lightbulbs, minor damages, etc.). Unfortunately, we were not made aware of any issues until the final day of this reservation.

Cute cottage along a creek that was great for the kids

  • 5 of 5

Great for two families with kids as there were two king beds and a bunk area that worked well for everyone! Leslie was a great host and answered all of our questions quickly.

Great property in a charming location close to South St. and Old City

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect four our 4th of July/reunion get together. The instructions were clear and the host was accommodating. We loved the master bathroom with the balcony. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a Philly vacation.

Charming apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling with our kids and parents and there was lots of room for us to be together and still have our own space. Nice neighborhood and very comfortable.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Philly in this apartment. It is so close to everything (restaurants, shops, historic sites) and was very comfortable and accommodating. Anytime we needed something, we were easily able to get a hold of someone to help us out. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!
