The space is on the third floor of our home. It is quiet and airy. The apartment has a washer/drier, TV with cable and premium channels. We provide linens, towels, shampoo and conditioner.

The house has high ceilings, wood floors and spacious rooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, pots and pans, a coffee maker, tea kettle and we will provide coffee, tea, cereal, fruit and bagels.

Street parking is available. We do have a cat on the first two floors of our house but he is not allowed on the third floor at all. We have had guests who are allergic to cats and they have not experienced any problems.

Guest access

Guests can come and go as they please. We provide a key to the front door. We like to welcome people and be available to answer any questions, but if you know your plans and are all set, we will leave you your privacy.

The front porch is available to people. It has comfortable chairs and a ceiling fan. Guests can smoke there or just have a glass of wine and enjoy our flower garden out front.

Interaction with guests

We are can be as involved as you like, providing information about the city, places to visit, etc. However, if you wish total privacy, this is fine and we will welcome you and let you go on your way. The entire 3rd floor is your space during your stay. We give guests a key so they can come and go as they wish.

Other things to note

My husband Mas and I have a long history of entertaining travelers and visitors. We enjoy meeting people from around the country and world and providing hospitality. We love Philadelphia and are happy to share its riches with others.

Jeans apartment was wonderful. She is a gracious and kind host, and provides resources that really allow you to explore great restaurants and things to do around philly. We did not take public transport, but noticed there were many bus stops nearby. The apartment is adorable, and exactly what my husband and I needed for a Memorial weekend wedding weekend. Highly recommend!

We spent wonderful time when we lived in this apartment! We wish everyone to have a great holidays in Jean and Mas comfortable house!

Very well-equipped and comfortable apartment on a nice street with adequate parking. Note 3 flights up some fairly steep stairs if you have knee or other issues. Friendly hosts!

I have just recently retired after a long and wonderful career as a community organizer, RN, health care administrator, public servant, foundation program officer and director of two non profits. My husband and I have raised our two children here in Philadelphia and both of them live nearby. We are new grandparents. In retirement, I have gotten certified as a yoga instructor and am interested in making yoga accessible to non-traditional audiences. We both read a great deal, love the movies, hike in a beautiful wild park near our house. Our house is simple and comfortable. You will walk through our house to get to the third floor space where you will be staying. Once the door closes, it is all yours. We are happy to share ideas about what to do and see in Philadelphia and to help make your stay a rich and enjoying one in any way we can.
