About this listing
One bedroom in a three bedroom, two story home, with one and a half baths. Close to public transportation and great restaurants!
This space has a trundle bed, which can be rolled out for a second person. The teal room has one window, a bed, dresser, table/desk, and clothing hanging system. This is ideal for one or two (the two beds can be at the same height or one can stay lower, great for parents traveling with teens). There is also a porch and backyard which you're welcome to use.
You can stay in the house later than check out time, yet the room will typically be cleaned between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. on check in and check out days. You can also leave your luggage at the house while you explore the city on your check out day.
Guests will have access to the room and the entire first floor: living room, kitchen, half bathroom and piano room.
Interaction with guests
I may or may not be present, and may have a roommate renting one of the other bedrooms. I will be available by phone and email, and have a local handyman. Or dog little Vinnie well also be around when we are.
With the subway less than a block away, the location is great! East Passyunk is a few blocks away and has an array of amazing restaurants, shops and more! The is also a grocery store a few blocks away.
If parking a car, please note that it is easier to park earlier in the day! Once folks come home from work (after 7) it's a bit harder to find a parking spot within a block of the house. Earlier is better.
The subway is less than a block away, and there are many bus lines that connect within a block or two. Parking is not an issue on this neighborhood (just read the signs!!)

Other things to note
Towels, linens, coffee, teas, shampoo, conditioner and such are provided. Also available is a book on Philadelphia, a bicycle map of Philadelphia (also can double as a street map) and a map of PA.
If there is something specific you need, just ask! If you would like a pass for a free yoga class to the studio that I teach at, let me know!
The home is non-smoking (you can smoke on the porch), and animals are not permitted. Other than that, just a general respect for the space is all that is needed. Quiet time (no piano playing etc.) is around 10 pm -8 am.
A public health academic who teaches yoga on the side. Joerg, my Austrian husband, loves to help travelers find a Philly adventure that suits their needs. If you want to know where to get the best cheesesteak in Philly or where to find the best breakfast sandwich, he's the one to ask! He speaks German, I speak a tiny bit of French.
We both love traveling, hiking, biking, reading and spending time with friends and family.
Traveling is key! I've been around the US a bit (Alaska and Hawaii too!), Barbados, France, England, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, Austria and New Zealand. Joerg has been just about everywhere - he's basically a walking travel book!
