My place is a one-bedroom apartment close to East Passyunk Crossing / Lower Moyamensing. You’ll love my place because of the coziness and the location. This is a very diverse neighborhood; all are welcome. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and bohemian business travelers.

The space

Located on a commercial street, the building is unassuming, but inside this first-floor apartment is cozy and eclectic. The bedroom with a queen bed is at the front of the house, so you will hear some street and people traffic. There is closet space here to hang your clothes and a small writing desk.

The kitchen has a dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave and stove top. The oven does not work. But, who has time for cooking? Philly has some of the best restaurants of any city in the U.S., and Passyunk Ave. is nearby with a host of dining options. You can also have food easily delivered with Grubhub or other apps. Menus and restaurants options are available in the house.

The dining area can double as a work space with a nice glass-topped table to spread out your work. Wireless is throughout the apartment, too. There is also a small library if you want to unplug. There is no TV.

The bathroom has a standing shower, and there is a washer in the unit. You can hang dry your clothes or use the nearby (1/2 block away) laundromat, which also has a wash-and-fold service.

The lounge area is done in blue and white with chairs and a sofa that doubles as a single-person futon for sleeping. This room opens to a small patio, where you can enjoy the outdoors with more quiet than out on the front stoop (a Philly term for steps). We live close together here in South Philly, which makes for fun. It also means you can sometimes hear the neighbors next door - music, loud voices.

This is a smoke-free space. Please be mindful of neighbors in the apartment upstairs. You share an entry.

Please note: PARKING - Is on street and very hard to find in the evening after working hours and on weekends. During the day, parking is easy to find throughout the week. PETS - If you are allergic to cats, this is not the space for you. This space will be cleaned for you, but a cat lives here when you are not visiting.

It wasn’t very nice to walk in and see a welcome binder full of menus of local restaurants (also a big jar of candy). The apartment is cozy and nice and the neighborhood was not a problem.

this is a little oasis in the midst of a vibrant and gritty neighborhood with alotta soul. mexican groceries, asian cafes, trendy coffee, and plentiful laundromats mark the streets; people on the stoop say hello when you pass. great walking and not bad parking. the space is small but efficient. a backyard patio is an oasis to take in the sun; the sky is able to be seen in complete privacy. inside the rooms are cheerfully decorated, marked by feminine and international touches plus good organization (the books are color coded on the shelves!).

Our stay at Sarah's apartment was really enjoyable! We were so pleased to find this nice and cosy place. Sarah was very helpful and considerate. We definitely recommend the place, and if we come back to Philly we will certainly stay here again!

Great host, let us have the whole place to ourselves and we were only ten minutes from everywhere we wanted to go. Very organized and cozy place to stay.

My stay at 809 Snyder Ave. was very pleasant. Snacks and drinks were available apon arrival, Sarah was very easy to get in touch with as well. The apartment was even nicer than the pictures depicted. The location was close to downtown and there were many fantastic restaurants within 2 miles. Sarah left plent of information on local activities, restaurants, etc. Overall my experience was 10/10, I would gladly stay here again.
