Not a safe neighborhood
The last night of our visit, our car was vandalized. The driver's side mirror was damaged. There is no driveway or garage, so the only option is street parking. The other half of the duplex had garbage on the front porch and there were a couple of memorials to shooting victims.
Inside of the house is well maintained minus a few nails sticking up from the hardwood floors.
The side of the duplex is not bad. The other duplex had trash all over. Bad first impression.
The living room furniture was stained and looked dirty. Grandkids would not sit on it. The parking was terrible. One bed had cheap sheets and they kept popping off during the night. Very aggravating. My daughter wanted to leave and get a hotel because of the neighborhood.
Cute, but did not feel safe
The owners were pleasant and helpful with questions. One of the air conditioners broke in the bedrooms while visiting so it made for an uncomfortable night sleeping. The place has nice colors and concept, however the couch is stained and carpet was not vacuumed. We had a problem with the tub draining. When walking up the front steps it smells like rotten garbage. The neighbors porch is full of trash. Also, he smokes on the porch. The description states the water is within walking distance, however we did not feel safe enough in the neighborhood to do so. We should have researched the neighborhood prior to booking. We only left the house to go to and from our van. Off street parking was not an issue. The neighbor’s dog barks constantly. The beds were comfortable and clean. The floors are squeaky: it’s an old home which isn’t a bad thing, but it makes it difficult to quietly walk around while others are sleeping.
Duplex is located in dangerous neighborhood.
We arrived on warm Saturday evening. People were milling in the narrow street,smoking marijuana, yelling at our car. There were flowers on the street where someone was shot to death last May.There were more flowers on the street two houses down in front of the abandoned school. That night we heard two gun shots and the sirens that followed.The neighbors in the adjoining duplex were loud and there dog barked until 2 in the morning.People rode by the house with their car radios very loud until early morning.We stayed 5 nights and no one bothered our car on the street. The house was clean, well furnished, but there is no loft as was advertised We did not feel safe in this house,and will not recommend because of it's location.
Thanks for the phone call. We appreciate your feedback. We also prioritize our guests safety. During our call John explained that the incident that he was referring to didn't happen at the house but on his way to the house. I apologized for the loud music from the passing cars. Our property is minutes away from downtown which is an urban part of the city. We have hosted over 50 families, and have stayed in the house ourselves. We have never had any safety issues. The neighborhood is very mature with kids playing safely outside all the time. Please note that John didn't let us know about any of these concerns or issues that occurred and he stayed 5 nights. When asked why did he not make us aware or even cancel his stay, he responded that he was enjoying his stay and that there were no issues with the house.
Nice place in up town Harrisburg..
Perfect Location in Harrisburg
Wonderfully represented double in Harrisburg. Close to everything, well appointed. We didn't spend much time in the home as we were attending an event at the Farm Show Complex, but it met our needs.
The street parking was easier than expected. There was only one bathroom, which we were aware, but it had a strangely placed radiator that blocked the vanity and proper sitting on the toilet.
The only disappointment was the kitchen. It didn't have large cooking pans, so cooking for a larger group was difficult. As well, there is no dishwasher, so you had to hand wash everything, but there was no strainer or adequate towels to dry or let things dry. Also, the dishes need to be washed before they were used. I didn't find them to be very clean.
All in All, it was a nice place in a nice location that served our needs and our budget.
