Modern, cute, spotless bedroom with en-suite full bathroom and a very comfy queen size bed. If your party includes more than two people, there is a second bedroom with a full-size bed plus a den with a nice sofa bed. We can accommodate up to 6 people.

Welcome to our large, comfortable, impeccably clean row home in Philadelphia’s awesome East Passyunk neighborhood! Located on Columbus Square and just a few blocks from all of the incredible restaurants and boutiques on E. Passyunk Ave, our home is just three blocks from the Ellsworth/Federal Subway station (Broad Street Line) and a 15 minute walk to Center City. If you are visiting Philadelphia to watch your favorite sports team play, our home is just a few minute, easy subway ride to the stadiums. The Philadelphia International Airport is only a 15 minute cab drive ($35 with tip). Up 16 steps and the entire second floor of our 2200 square foot house will be your home away from home. We will gladly help you bring up your luggage if requested. Your bedroom is large, bright, and private with en-suite bathroom, closet, dresser, independently controlled mini-split (heat, air conditioning and dehumidification features), a brand-new queen sized bed with hypoallergenic cover covering the entire mattress and pillows. We offer different types of pillows for you to choose from (from very soft, to medium and firm) as well as a large flat screen television with cable (FiOS) and free, super-fast Internet, for your enjoyment and comfort. In addition to your bedroom, the second floor also features a cozy den/sitting room for your private use, as well as the possibility to rent an additional bedroom if you are traveling with family or friends. When you make a reservation with us, you are renting this main bedroom with one queen size bed that accommodates two people. In other words, if you want to use the second bedroom you will need to rent that bedroom also.
IMPORTANT: Please be advised that the second bedroom needs to be rented in addition to the first bedroom. The second bedroom includes a full-size, comfortable bed but you will have share the bathroom on the main bedroom with the rest of your party. If you are traveling with more than four people, we can accommodate two more people on the sofa bed in the den/sitting room. Please note that those staying in the additional bedroom and on the sofa bed in the den/sitting room will have access to a powder room on the first floor, and should plan to share the en-suite bathroom for showering. When you stay with us, you and your party will be the only guests in our home. If you don’t rent the additional bedroom, it will remain empty through out your stay.
Guests will be given a code to unlock the front door to enter our home, and can come and go as they please. Complimentary coffee, tea, cream/sugar, toast, butter, jam, yogurt and fruit will be made available in the morning. During warm weather, feel free to enjoy your cup of coffee or tea in our beautiful, urban garden. Our home is a non-smoking, but feel free to smoke in our backyard (during warm weather) or in the park just across the street from our house. Please refrain from cooking but feel free to use our glasses for drinks (filtered water available in water dispenser in the refrigerator) and our plates, silverware and microwave if you wish.
