About this listing

1 Bedroom Historic Apartment located blocks away from the Art Museum and Center City.

The space

You'll be sleeping on cloud 9 in the lofted queen bed and you'll enjoy showering in the clawfoot tub. This cozy junior one bedroom can accommodate up to 4 people. You'll be transported back to the 19th century upon entering the foyer and walking up the hand-made staircase.

Kitchen is fully-stocked with pots, pans, dishes and everything else you could want (even a Vitamix!). The place has wifi, a 37" HDTV, iPad/iPhone gramophone and a blue-ray player.

I am always available via phone, however, if I'm in Philly, I'll certainly be available to show you the ropes.

The art museum area is located minutes away from everything and yet far enough removed that there is ample street parking. World renowned art museums like the Barnes and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are two blocks away. Rittenhouse square is a short 15 minute walk.

There is plenty of public transit directly out your front door. If you're heading to the stadiums, the broad street line is a 7 minute walk away and taxis are always driving past.

No parties except those involving tea.

The historic home is gorgeous and Steve has a great taste in decoration. The large doors truly give you a feel for old Philadelphia. The apartment didn't look like it had been dusted for a while. I'm not the pickiest person about cleanliness, but there was quite a bit of dust everywhere, which made it seem like the apartment was not cleaned for our arrival. The place was spacious for the four of us. The location is quite and appears safe though about a 15-20 drive to the center of the city.

The house was as described. It had everything one would possibly need (including toaster oven, microwave, all utensils). The neighborhood is very central (15min to city hall and 5 min to the PMA). The area is quiet at night, but has everything close by (WaWa, Whole Foods, restaurants, and cafés). Stephen was very helpful replying to email within an hour and showing us the house. Key exchange was easy. The only thing is that the house was not clean. It could use a heavy dusting session and the bathroom definitely needs professional cleaning and some fixing. The lofted bed and the sofa-bed were comfy enough to sleep at night. We really enjoyed our stay and the house is very cozy, but the cleaning thing was definitely a bummer. Please dust and clean the house thoroughly next time before renting it out. With such an easy step, people's stay could dramatically improve Per gli italiani, il livello di pulizia non è assolutamente accettabile. Abbiamo passato mezza giornata a pulire un po' la casa cosicché fosse in condizioni accettabili.

My boys (age 8 and 10) loved this place. They want me to buy it so that we can stay every time I take them to visit my hometown. Stephen was away, but made it very easy for us to access the apartment. The location was great and parking was less of a hassle than I had feared. We will definitely stay again next time we're back in Philly!

Stephen was a gem and he made my friends and I feel very welcomed! His home is beautiful and located in a lovely part of town. He offered up friendly local intel with a couple of great recommendations on the area. And he made check-in and departure a breeze by being so friendly and agreeable. We had a wonderful time! Stephen comes highly recommended!

Stephen's home is truly beautiful! It's on a very lovely quiet block, too. There is a full kitchen, a comfy loft, big pillows to prop yourself up on while watching TV, and a surprisingly lovely bathroom with a claw-foot tub. I just stayed for a night, but there's plenty of restaurants around the area to go out to eat, and his home is a great place to unwind and watch a movie in. Thanks Stephen!

My wife and I just moved to Fishtown in 2016 (after years in the Fairmount neighborhood). We bought a house in need of lots of renovation and TLC. The house renovation was a labor of love, and we are so excited with how it turned out. We're excited to share our dream home with you! And hopefully while you're staying in our home, we'll be at an Airbnb in some other exciting part of the world!
