Your booking is for the ENTIRE 2nd floor with 2 large, private bedrooms and your own spacious bathroom. The house is 3 stories with shared common spaces, a roof deck with stunning skyline views, free laundry, and chef's kitchen. Tons of amenities included like keyless entry, fluffy linens, fast wifi & stocked toiletries. We welcome people of all walks of life in our home.

The space

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).

Guests have access to the entire house, except for our private space on the 3rd floor, the basement, and the hot tub.

We do not impose any curfew on our guests and you come and go as you please.

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.

A lovely home! We had a wonderful experience at Jen & Griff's place. Jen was wonderful and prompt to answer our questions via phone and in person. We felt safe and comfortable in their home. A great place to stay when traveling to Philly!

Jen and Griff have a lovely home that anyone would be happy to stay in for a trip to Philadelphia. The neighborhood is lovely and full of charm. There are lots of nearby options for food and coffee that don't dissapoint. We were in town for the philly half and full marathon, so we were out and about much of the day. At night our hosts had 2-3 guests over two out of three nights, which was totally quiet and appropriate but limited our ability to use the kitchen, dining room, and living room since it's all open concept. It would have been nice to know in advance that we wouldn't be able to relax on a couch or at a table, so I would urge guests to ask the hosts in advance if they plan to cook or watch tv or order food in. We did not ask our hosts in advance but if we had I am sure they would have been accommodating.

Response from Jen & Griff (Eric):
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! This listing is for a shared space - we always tell guests to make themselves at home and to take advantage the common spaces (kitchen, dining room, living room, and yard/deck). We would have been happy to share with our guests or relocate elsewhere, but we were never asked to. We try our best to clearly communicate with guests and ask the same of them. We are truly sorry if you felt your stay was any less than perfect due to miscommunication.

Jenn and Griff are just the kind of hosts guests hope for. They are welcoming, helpful, trusting and accessible. Our accommodations were clean, comfortable and just as it is pictured. They have a beautiful place and we were made to feel at home. They have a dog and cat. The cat is cool and laid back, however Ollie the dog really likes to interact with people!

Jen and Griff were amazing hosts and were extremely kind and very accommodating! They were incredibly personable and easy to talk to. They were quick to respond whenever we reached out to them. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them! The location is in an up and coming neighborhood with great shops nearby. The downtown area is also just a quick walk away. Their home was cozy and spacious and felt private. We had our own private restroom that was fully stocked with toiletries. It also had fresh towels and washcloths for our convenience. They even extended their hospitality by offering to provide us with things that we have forgotten at home. If we are ever back in Philly, we would love to stay at their home again!

Our family really enjoyed the stay at Jen & Griff's place. They have a lovely home and they were very welcoming. It was easy to find and the instructions given for how to access the home were very clear. Their home was very clean and well maintained. They did everything they could to make sure our stay was comfortable. This was our first experience with Airbnb and based on this, we will do it again!

Jen and Griff were remarkable hosts. I needed something very last minute and they went out of their way to accommodate me. Their home was very warm and welcoming. The room and bathroom were in excellent condition and made the stay all the more pleasant. They were also very hospitable, had a sharing is caring attitude and also helped me load and unload my luggage. They also provided valuable insight about different neighborhoods in the city. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a place in central Philly. Would certainly love to stay with them again.
