We had a wonderful stay in Cara and Eric's beautiful home. The location was perfect for exploring Philadelphia and the room very comfortable. The hosts were fantastic with suggestions. I highly recommend a stay here if you are visiting Philly.

Comfort, safety and confidence aptly describe Cara's place as well thoughtlly equipped amenities. The community is diverse and central to just about everything. We also found street parking as well as garage for fee. We definitely recommend Cara's place.

The place is very well located, and it is in walking distance to the city center. The rooms were comfortable and well separated from the rest of the house. We had a great time at Cara's place.

Unfortunately, I got sick and never made it to Philadelphia, but Cara was easy to reach and very accomodating. She worked with me and refunded most of my payment, less her BnB costs. Hopefully I'll get to meet her on another visit.

I am a repeat visitor to Cara and Eric's beautiful townhome. They are both wonderful hosts and engaging people to know. I was very comfortable on the third floor which is private and sunny. The neighborhood is eclectic and centrally located near bus and SEPTA rail and close to major attractions and museums. There are many fine restaurants and wine bars within a few blocks. I look forward to returning again! Highly recommend!

Just a short 10-15 minute walk from all the fun downtown! It was a great place - clean and cozy. They were very accommodating and friendly. This was my first AirBnB experience, and I enjoyed it.
