My home is close to Everything. The Magic Garden is next door. The Kimmel Center, theaters, the Convention Center and hundreds of restaurants are only minutes away. Whole Foods, Starbucks, a playground and a dog walk are only a block away. You can enjoy my amazing roof deck, with a view of the entire city, just a block from South St.. Wonderful light and decor with complimentary continental breakfast & restaurant reviews. Enclosed parking one block away.

The space

You have a private floor on a quiet mosaic decorated street. The roof deck has an amazing view of the entire city and it filled with trees, bushes and flowers and overlooks The Magic Garden.

If you come for the Flower Show, I will have lots of tips and insights since I have worked with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for decades.

Guest access

Guests have their own private floor with a bedroom and private bathroom (that has a washer and dryer and small refrigerator). They will be free to use the roof deck and to eat a Continental breakfast in the kitchen (but not to cook in the kitchen).

Interaction with guests

Available to help at any time. I love to socialize with guests that want it, but respect the privacy of those that do not. I have lived in this house for over 25 years, so can provide lots of recommendations for what to do, where to eat and where to go.

Chris’ home is delightful and her accommodations for visitors are outstanding. Great location just off South Avenue and close to everything. An easy 20 minute walk to Center City. Absolutely, accommodations that can’t be beat.

Chris is an excellent host and very flexible about check in/out times. Her home is beautiful and it's is a great location for exploring Philly. She is clearly very knowledgeable about the area and has recommendations for everything.

Chris' home is just behind Philadelphia's Magic Gardens in South Phillie, the reason for our trip - to take a mural workshop from the artist. Chris is a kind and generous human being with an interesting second career as a landscape designer and horticulturist. She has a beautiful home with fantastic art and books, a lovely community garden and the ability to make guest feel right at home.

Chris was a delight. She accommodating and willing to offer ideas, restaurant suggestions and community insights. She's a font of knowledge on the neighborhood and city and an amazing green thumb! The view from the roof top is stunning and a planted oasis. Being able to overlook the Magical Garden from her home is an added bargain. It's a great location with so much within walking distance.

I am a foodie (so have lots of recommendations for restaurants and foodie shopping), a horticulturalist (who recently started an urban garden design and installation business), an avid supporter of our regions' incredible arboretums and a big theater and music enthusiast. I have lived in Philadelphia, in this house, for over 25 years (after 5 years in NYC) and have seen the city and my neighborhood grow and prosper and become an incredible place to live. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
