Very charming house. The owners have everything you need.
We loved our stay there. The house was close to everything.
Absolutely perfect place for a city getaway!
This place is in a terrific location in the city with easy access to amazing restaurants, overnights parking garages, coffee shops, public transportation, etc.
The decor was so calming and relaxing. Extremely clean and very comfortable beds. The outdoor patio was a highlight also! Owner is really wonderful to work with during rental process and stay.
I would choose this place over a hotel stay every time!
Perfect City Cottage
Richie was a wonderful host. A group of friends and I visited Philadelphia for the first time for an academic conference. During our stay, Richie was very accommodating and offered recommendations to see the city. The house is beautiful and cozy, and is located in the heart of the city. The home is walking distance from restaurants, the convention center, and the famous reading terminal market. Inside the home, Richie had everything you needed including: Umbrellas, comfortable beds, board games, and excellent wifi. Richie was available via phone and was prompt at getting back to me when I reached out to him for any questions I had. I would recommend this home to anyone! (You will love also love the decorations in the home, I promise:)
