Why Qui Chau chose Harrisburg
We love downtown because it's a unique neighborhood to play and relax. Riverfront is at your door steps and City Island and the "Walking Bridge" offers a very unique experience of the Susquehanna River. Harrisburg is a hidden jewel in Pennsylvania due to its rich history, natural beauty and easy access to most major Mid-Atlantic metropolitan cities. It is the capital city of Pennsylvania with many historic buildings to visit. The Blue Ridge & Appalachian Mountains surround it with lots of hiking and biking trails. It is considered the hub of PA due to most major highways passing through or near it. This house lies on the most southern part of historic Shipoke. It is known for its river front access, views and sunsets. You can easily walk or drive to all points. We had lived in the city for over 10 yrs and its a joy to visit or do business here.
What makes this Townhome unique
You will be surprised by the natural beauty of the location. There are many bridges that span the Susquehanna River and it's right at your door steps. The serene back patio allows you to enjoy your morning coffee or walk to a bench on Riverfront Park to soak in the sunrise or sunsets. The house is fully furnished for your enjoyment.

Enjoyed the Historical Neighborhood and House
It was a good experience for me and my family to have been able to stay in a house and neighborhood with history and charm.
Harrisburg with a View!
The property was well situated and convenient to the Capital and many restaurants. The kitchen was well stocked; the housekeeping excellent and the view was a knockout. We were four adults and very comfortable. The proximity to the busy bridge was a cause for a bit of noise but with the windows shut it was not a problem.
If you go you will enjoy a walk along the river and then a short hike into the city.
Charming, spacious row house on the river
Qui and Adrian's house was perfect for our family getaway to Hersheypark (only ~20 minutes away). Despite being a historic row house, their home had more than enough room for 5 adults. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner/breakfast. We were able to park 3 cars without issue (1 in the garage and 2 on-street). Qui was responsive and friendly throughout all our interactions and provided ample details to ensure a smooth check-in. Highly recommended!
Lovely house with character and charm
A beautiful house with a lot of character and all modern necessities. It was comfortable and beautiful, and the full family (including the Labrador) had a great time here. The ease of access to the riverfront park was fantastic.
Perfect for our needs
House was well located; it was nice to have someplace close to stay that was between all the places we wanted to visit. I loved having the comforts of a home (i.e. kitchen, fridge, washer/dryer) and the option to lounge with my family in the living room. Beds were comfy, more than enough linens. Kitchen was well stocked with dinnerware, cookware, and some pantry staples (THANK YOU for the coffee, creamer and sugar. They were essential! Stock spices came in handy too). Thankful for the garage too; not having to find nearby parking was a blessing in the rain. There was a convenient playground blocks away, covered picnic area, and a delicious Cuban restaurant right next to the playground with outdoor seating. Downtown Harrisburg was a 20-30min walk but doable even by my kids standards with some yummy restaurants. All in all the wiser choice compared to a hotel. The only downside was that the Quiet Time starts so early at 8pm. It was hard to quiet the kids down from being excited all day and also limited our downtime once the kids were asleep as we made an effort not to make too much noise. Growing up in a townhouse I can remember all too well how easily sound travels through the walls.
Exactly like the pictures.
I was pleasantly surprised that everything was just like the picture. We were very happy with our stay. They are just a call away for fix any issues and answer any questions. Thank you for the great experience.
Appreciate you taking care of our place. Please come back and visit us again.
Perfectly situated in the historic district of Shipoke in downtown Harrisburg in a residential neighborhood, this 3 story rowhome is within walking distance to everything. Lively 2nd Street is just minutes away. Riverfront is at your door steps. Enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in PA right in front of you. City Island is a very short walk & downtown is 5-10 minutes away.
You are in the heart of everything that is downtown yet far enough to have your privacy and enjoy the serene Susquehanna River.
Must do is walk the Walnut St (Walking Bridge) at sunset or early morning to City Island and take the entire loop around the island. Riverfront Walk has 2 levels of sidewalks that takes you 2-3 miles up Front Street. Very scenic and peaceful. Great area to walk, bike, rollerblade, etc.
Public bus transportation just 2-3 blocks away, Amtrak just downtown (10 min walk) and very easy access to all major highways by car.
There are many local attractions, all of which are under 1 hour radius of the house. Hersheypark and Chocolate World is only a short 20 minute drive, historic Gettysburg Battlefield is 45 minutes away, Amish Country in Lancaster is 45 minutes, Appalachian Trail is under 25 minutes, and of course Riverfront Riverwalk right at your doorsteps.
For families, the Whitaker Center is perfect for everyone. It is the only IMAX theater in the local area. The Susquehanna Museum is located in Midtown as well as the Broad Street Farmer's Market (Thur-Sat). Lots of local restaurants make it easy for a night out or take in.
For the adventurous and day trippers, Philadelphia can be reached by Amtrak in 1h45min, NYC & Pittsburgh in 3 hrs, Washington DC in 2.5 hrs, Baltimore in just over 1 hr and beautiful Maryland or Delaware beaches in 2-3 hours.
