Jen and Matt were the perfect hosts! The house was spotless and the location was perfect! We walked to all of the museums and explored the city on our way. The house and neighborhood were beautiful and I cannot wait until our next stay! Thank you Jen and Matt!

This is a beautifully decorated and equipped home in a terrific neighborhood. The rooftop deck is a wonderful feature when the weather cooperates. The house is on a quiet block but very close to conveniences like Starbucks, Whole Foods and the oldest Italian Restaurant in the U.S. (Ralph's). We highly recommend the house and Jenn and Matt are outstanding hosts.

This is an excellent place to stay. Great location in the middle of a ton of great restaurants and tourist attractions (Italian Market, Old City, several parks/historic sites, and many other spots). The house is gorgeous--extremely clean, sunlit, and perfect for relaxing inside and outside on the rooftop. A small group of us stayed here for a friend reunion and had a blast. Thank you.

We recently visited Philadelphia to celebrate our youngest daughters graduation from Drexel. We planned on staying in a hotel but with 6 adults it is costly, crowded and not very friendly. Jen and Matt home made the weekend a real vacation. They were perfect hosts. Jenn generously purchased us several parking passes so that we could park on the street, provided a detail list of coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores and septa stops and was quick to respond to my questions leading up to the trip. The house is exactly as picture, the kitchen is fully equipped to have morning coffee or a five-course meal. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms clean and modern. The house and location are fabulous. We walked to the Italian Market and shopped for Saturday nights dinner, toasted the graduate on their beautiful roof deck, sat in the sun in the backyard drinking our morning coffee and loved walking to the local shops. If you are visiting Philly we highly recommend you stay at Jenn and Matt’s beautiful Urban Retreat .

Jennifer and Matt were so gracious! They answered all of our questions before we arrived and even called us while we were at their condo to answer a few more! Their retreat was nicely furnished and decorated and had lots of space for the five of us to relax. Jennifer and Matt included parking passes for us as well as a list of the things going on in Philadelphia that weekend. We felt as though we were staying in an inn with a wealth of amenities. Thank you Jennifer and Matt-we had a blast!

We are full of adventure, and quite silly: ) We love the outdoors but can't leave the people or this city behind for too long. Wherever we go we bring both our monkeys (one child, one dog). We've stayed with lots of friends along the way and can only hope your experience in our house is the best of all of those experiences!
