Cozy Private room in fabulous area. -Great location! Near South St., TLA, Old City, Center City, Pennsylvania Hospital and the Historic Sites. Easy walk to Rittenhouse Square. Close to public transit and many great restaurants and attractions.
You'll be given access to this beautiful historic townhouse and can come and go as you please. The bathroom is just down the hallway from your bedroom, and is shared with other guests. We invite you to cook in the kitchen (and use the dishes, pots, and pans), watch TV in the living room, or wash your laundry in the basement. Feel free to just relax in the spacious back yard.
This listing is a private room, but you will likely share the bathroom with another guest. In the spirit of Airbnb, guests are welcome to interact and enjoy each other's company in shared space such as the living room, kitchen, and back yard.
This house is a historic trinity and has a spiral staircase that could prove challenging to anyone with mobility issues.
Parking can be a challenge - there's really no place to park for free all day in the area. There is some free on-street parking in the neighborhood but there is a 2-hour time limit so you have to move the car every 2 hours to avoid a ticket. It is free overnight after 6:30, 8, 10 pm or midnight depending on the day and the street - you just have to read the signs. You can park at one of several lots nearby (Central Parking at 10th and South, E-Z Park at 530 S. 2nd St., E Z Park at 303 Bainbridge St. or you can park for free all day if you're willing to willing to park about 10 blocks away (near 10th and Washington Ave). There is free parking all day on Sundays on many of the residential streets in the area.
I would like my guests to feel like they are in their own home and take care of it as such. Because it is a shared space I would ask that they keep all shared areas tidy for the common enjoyment of all guests. Only guests with confirmed reservations are permitted on the premises (prior approval is required for any exceptions) Smoking is not permitted in the house but is permitted in the back yard (please properly dispose of cigarette butts). Please keep music and/or noise at a level that is considerate of all guests. (No loud parties please) If you need anything or have any questions please feel free to let me know.
I'm a yoga, dance, and fitness instructor and I've lived in the Philadelphia Area for over 30 years. I love living in Philadelphia! The city is large enough to have all of the many cultural events, restaurants, and nightlife that I enjoy while having a local, neighborhood vibe. Everything is very accessible by foot or by public transit so a car is optional here. I live in the Art Museum Area and I love to walk or bike in Fairmount Park, enjoy the many restaurants within 5 blocks (This city has really great food!), traveling, meeting all kinds of people, listening to live jazz, etc. I enjoy hearing about my guests experiences, professions and travels. If you happen to love yoga or belly dance classes you might find time to take a class at my yoga/dance studio in Fairmount. I think that you'll love your stay in Philadelphia- looking forward to meeting you!
