Why Q. Chau chose Harrisburg
Let me tell you about this fantastic property in the heart of Midtown Harrisburg. My wife and I have lived in this spacious townhome for over 10 yrs. It's bright, super clean, modern and airy. Also, there are so many things to do and see. And the best is you can either walk or bike to most destinations on both shores of the Susquehanna River. The locals call it the East and West Shore. (Property is on the East Shore.) Lots of trails and the sunset views of the river are to die for. I chose this house because of its location: easy and super fast access to all major highways, access to Amtrak or Greyhound just downtown, walk to everything if you're car-less. Best of all, the quality of living is superb. True urban living. For example, the snowfall in the winter is an amazing site over the river. Great time for hot chocolate and snuggle in for a great movie. Spring and summer time means lots of outdoor activities. There are festivities on Front Street from Spring to Fall. Check them out on the site for all events and happenings. The Susquehanna Arts Museum is just 2 blocks away. The Midtown Theater is 3 blocks away with an eclectic list of short and sundance type movies. The Midtown Bookstore is 1 block away with lots of great reads. The Dauphin County Library is just 7 minutes away. Live music can be had just across the street. If you like a nice wine or liquor, just walk across the street (literally) and they will be able to help you with suggestions. If the bar and restaurant scene is your thing, then all you have to do is just pick one and walk there. Lots of great eats surrounding this home. Live music - check. Karaoke - done. Romantic walks at anytime of the day - check and check. You get the drift.
What makes this Townhome unique
My favorite thing to do while I had lived here was walking or running with my great dane on Riverfront. You can go either direction and it's absolutely beautiful. If going North, you will find the Governor's mansion and huge historic mansions. On south Front Street, you have downtown and City Island. The AA baseball team plays there as well as the soccer team. There are sand volleyball courts for your use (free). Kids will love the train and mini-golf. Kayak and canoe rentals there too. Anyhow, you will not be disappointed. I have furnished the place for your comfort with a full kitchen. Otherwise, takeout can be had just walking out the door. If you're bored, there is an old school Xbox with tons of games. If you're a book worm, there are some good reads. We have Netflix, Prime, Sling TV and cable TV (if avaiable from power antenna) for your tube-o-holics :-) Come and experience what Harrisburg has to offer. We have one spot for private, off-street parking. Additional cars will require a parking permit at City Hall for $10/car.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Family Get Together
We were there for family get together. Rental was close to Hershey and easy to access the highway. For the most part the property met our needs but lacked spaciousness and seemed to be more like a dorm room or college apartment. During our stay it was hot and although there was adequate air conditioning for the lower levels the bedrooms upstairs were HOT. The mattresses could stand to be upgraded. In my opinion the property could be upgraded to meet the 5 rating but lacks higher quality items. The living room furniture, kitchen furniture, flooring in kitchen and living room, and mattresses should be of the highest quality so when tenants come they don't want to leave. Also anything in disrepair needs to be fixed before tenants arrive ( screen door, wall below oven hood, and kitchen wall outlet). Not sure if there was patio furniture but that would be nice. Also there were ants. I have stayed at many vrbo homes and this did not meet the 5 rating I am accustomed to. You have nice property and with these upgrades it would be marvelous!
Decent option vs hotel
Property was overall very clean inside. Some carpets were stained but not something I thought was "dirty". Bedding/mattresses are old and not comfortable. One bed had a memory foam that was too small for the bed, others you could tell were very old (felt plastic like) and headboards were not attached. There were not enough sheets for all beds, no paper towels and there were electrical outlet covers missing exposing the outlets/wires. This was a much better place to stay for large parties than hotel rooms but considering the above, would not stay there again. Advised owners of issues and they were quick to say issues would be fixed immediately. However we were only there for 3 days so did not see any of this. We did get an apology but that was all. For $300 a night including fees, would have expected more. Property was about 15 minutes from Hershey Park which was the reason for staying here.
Spacious and clean
Easy to find not too far from I-81 or I-83s, with private off-street parking. Three bedrooms each with multiple beds to accommodate various sized groups. Basement game room with foosball, ping pong futon and tv. Central air conditioning, HD Tv with various streaming options. Owners responded within the hour to questions. Location seemed to be in a better part of downtown Harrisburg and drove by several nearby restaurants. There were recommendations provided by the owners. Many of the city's attractions seemed to be pretty close, but Harrisburg itself wasn't our main destination. We didn't do much research ahead of time and found that we weren't really compelled to explore the city, particularly after a couple long days at the Hershey complex. We just appreciated the easy access, parking and space to wind down.
My stay at Harrisburg
My stay at Harrisburg was a beautiful experience for my family and I.
We enjoyed our stay very much. It was just as it was mention online
Very clean very spacious. Also has places to visit. I would recommend to anyone whom may want to get away for a weekend. Thank you for your hospitality
Clean and in a great city spot
We were in town for the weekend to attend a wedding. This townhouse had the capacity to accomodate many more than we needed, but we were happy to find a pup friendly place in the midtown neighborhood. The kitchen seemed well appointed, though we only used the fridge and coffeepot. The owners were responsive with any pre-stay questions and questions we had upon arrival. Even though this is a townhouse with shared walls, we had no noise issues on either side. Loved going to the Broad Street Market and had a hard time deciding which restaurant to walk to for dinner. Minor suggested improvements include having more towels available and possibly adding some power strips to the bedrooms so guests can more easily find a place to charge their devices.
Great stay in Harrisburg!
Clean, comfortable home. Plenty of room. Great, convenient location!
Everything we wanted to see and do was either within walking distance or a short 20 minute drive away.
This property is so close to everything. It has quick access to all major highways and local main streets. No car needed if staying in the city. Otherwise, you have Uber and public transportation or car rentals near by. I would recommend the Enterprise on Cameron Street as they can pick you up and drop you off.
Here are just a few points of interest (POI) for you:
Farm Show Complex
Ferry Boat Rides - City Island
Broad Street Farmers Market
Amish Country - Lancaster
