When requesting to book: please let us know a little bit about why you're in town, number of travelers, and your expected arrival/check-in time.
The house is a large spacious rowhome, originally constructed in the 1800's, and completely renovated in 2013 by us! We designed the open layout and selected every finish in the house to keep its historic charm, coupled with modern day amenities. The house is 3 stories tall and features hardwood floors, exposed brick, a huge backyard with grill, firepit, and garden, and 4th story roofdeck with stunning panoramic views of Philadelphia. We hope you will love our home as much as we do!
Your bedrooms are on the second floor. Each bedroom is furnished with a comfortable queen size bed with W Hotels mattress, ceiling fan, fresh sheets and blankets, pillows, and large closets. These rooms are only booked for you, and all guests in your booking have exclusive access to the large 2nd floor bathroom with soaking tub/shower, fresh towels, and toiletries.
The kitchen is stocked with all cookware if you're feeling like a chef! Or just use the fridge to store some snacks or order delivery from a variety of places around the city. You are welcome to use our washer and dryer, located on the third floor. There is a strong and fast wifi signal throughout the house (75/75 Mbps).

Interaction with guests
As the owners, we will be staying in the same house during your stay. While providing you privacy, we will be happy to assist you with whatever questions you might have such as things to see, to do, eat, information about the city, etc.
Other things to note
We have pets: Kitty, a sweet, snuggly 12 year old rescue tabby cat, and Olli, a 2 year old rescue dog (27 lb Feist terrier breed). Olli is friendly, very energetic, and loves to play. She is crated when we are not home, and we have a daily weekday dog walker that comes around lunchtime to take Olli out for an hour.
If there is anything we can do to make your stay better, either before you arrive or once you get here, please let us know and we will do our best to address it immediately.
