Alex's home is beautiful and in a very convenient neighborhood. The home is well appointed. She has thought of every thing you could possibly need and left it for you! Even though she was not present during my stay, Alex was very responsive to any questions I had.

Alex's home was beautifully designed and the room I stayed in was spacious and airy. The pictures don't do it justice. However there was some issues with housekeeping, and I would of liked to know there was no door to my room. That being said, I did not spend much time there. The neighborhood seemed quiet but definitely still in the process of gentrification. I would recommend this listing to someone looking for somewhere beautiful to stay close to downtown and if you love pets - Alex's cat and dog were friendly and well-behaved.

Alex's place was in a very up and coming part of town, which we loved. It's a short ten or fifteen minute walk to a wide variety of bars, restaurants, bagel shops, etc. I will say that the neighborhood is still a little rough around the edges. If you're looking for a perfectly pristine neighborhood, this isn't your place. But Alex's house was beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the company of her cat, who is very friendly. My only small complaint is that the bathroom off of the master suite could've been cleaner- nothing major, just someone else's hair on the floor and in the shower. It's also good to know that the master suite doesn't have a door. It's up a set of stairs on it's own floor. It feels very private, but it's a good thing to know going in.

Alex and her home were wonderful! The place was bright & airy, not to mention totally spotless. Some helpful hotel-style toiletries were provided for the absent-minded! Even hair ties, which was a particularly thoughtful touch. The location was ideal for us and we did a LOT of walking around, with plenty to see and do. Alex herself was also great. We mostly missed each other but got to hang out briefly on our last night. When our paths crossed, she was nothing but friendly, helpful, but not overbearing or intrusive (important!). She even rescued my shoes. :) Have I mentioned her pets? Walker & Luna were adorable and fun additions. Would absolutely stay again, the next time we're in Philly!
