This PRIVATE ROOM is located in a brand new converted basement located 3 min north of Presbyterian hospital. Our house offers comfy rooms, soft beds, and quiet environment. Ideal for board exams or Residency interview at Penn Medicine, Presbyterian, HUP, etc.
Please note the basement ceiling is 76" high.

This room can only accommodate 1 person. The common spaces (living-room, kitchen, bathroom) will be shared with other guests most likely having step2 CS or Residency interview just like you ^_^

The space

Reservations at our house are preferentially given to our medical guests who need either a quiet environment to study for their board exams or to relax and prepare for the residency interviews.

We also just recently opened a brand new "Medicine-living-room" in our furnished basement that can offer quiet reading area with 2 large couches, a electric fireplace and smart TV. Our future-doctor guests are welcome to use this area to practice cases with each other, or share their interview experiences or just to hang out and relax.

Wow! I love my room at Vanessa's place! My room was in the basement. Very quiet and clean. Vanessa has all you need to stay a couple nights here. The front porch of the house always lit up at night, which makes me feel safe. I also enjoyed the Netflix in my room. Vanessa also has a printer and a computer for airbnb guests to use if needed. Great value!

Dear guests,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your visit in Philadelphia. Whether you are coming for business, pleasure, or to visit family, I think you will enjoy my bnb rooms and what the Philadelphia has to offer.

I’ve always loved traveling and meeting new people. My husband and I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, mountain climbing, canoeing, fishing, etc. I’ve visited Cambodia, Thailand and been back to Vietnam many times. We also have lived in many regions of the US such as Arizona, Mississippi, Massachusetts before we decided to settle down in Philadelphia. We have lived here almost 2 years and this lovely city has never ceases to amaze us.

To share a bit about myself, I was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam and graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology with a degree in Commerce. I worked at the Axis Market Research company for 2 years as a research analyst before joining my husband in the US while he was pursuing his doctoral degree in chemistry. During this time, I completed my MBA program at MSU and took on a second research associate position in the MBA department. At the moment I am working as a full time host and supporting my husband working for the university and raising our two children. I never knew becoming an airbnb host can be such joy. I’ve met many people all over the world and befriended with them. The majority of my guests also happen to be in professional and medical fields. Our rooms are tailored specifically to the needs of our professional and medical guests: clean, quiet and comfortable. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, please let us know.

I look forward to meeting and hosting you soon.
