Enjoy a cozy and peaceful stay with tons of natural light throughout my home on a quiet block in a diverse South Philly neighborhood.
I have one bedroom with a full-size bed for two guests. It is on the second floor with a shared bathroom. You can cook, use wifi and watch cable, wash your laundry, and chill on the patio. My tuxedo cat will most likely talk to you too. I plan to make coffee and have pastries ready for guests each morning.
My home is in a working class, residential area of the Newbold neighborhood. It is very ethnically and racially diverse, and you can grab authentic Vietnamese, Indonesian, Thai, and Cambodian BBQ food. You will also find a strong sense among the black community here with many folks sitting on their stoops and talking to their neighbors. While the area may appear rough around its edges, it's actually very pleasant and friendly. It's important that you feel comfortable being in a diverse and urban area if you choose to stay here.
My home is close via walking and public transit to many things to do and see located on my guidebook. You can walk over to E. Passyunk becoming known as a 'food mecca' for its many restaurants. After a meal, you can walk it off to a ritzy shopping area known as Rittenhouse 20-30 minutes away or use several options to get downtown on public transit to go sightseeing. I am about 4 1/2 blocks away from the subway and near the 2 and 17 bus routes. South Philly is very easy and accessible to get around.
I am a city girl from the Midwest and mostly play soccer, keep my nose in the books, and work a lot lately but can direct you to my favorite places around the city. I prefer to have ladies and couples as guests in my home.
