Our room is private and comfortable, containing a queen-size bed, dresser, and closet. It is spacious and discreetly sits at the back of the house. It is a short walk to the subway which will take you almost anywhere in the city. Safe, clean street.
This space is in a newly renovated home. You will have access to a private room and private bathroom. There is central air to ensure that the temperature is always comfortable. We also have a window unit and a space heater in case you would like to further regulate the temperature. If you are interested in touring Philadelphia, the subway is in walking distance from our house, or you can catch the bus across the street. We are close to Penn and Drexel campuses and not far from various restaurants and shops.
Zugang für Gäste
In addition to the bedroom and bathroom, we would like to share our living room and kitchen with you. We have space for your food in our refrigerator and you are welcome to use our other appliances, including our microwave, oven, stove, coffee maker, and dishwasher. If you're here for a longer period of time, we are happy to share our washer and drier with you, too.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We both work during the day but are home most nights and on the weekends. We are on the quiet side, so we will respect your privacy. However, we love meeting new people so we would love to chat with you. We love to travel, especially within Philadelphia, so we have plenty of resources for you about your stay in this amazing city.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We have two cats who are well-behaved and clean. The guest room door is always kept closed so cat hair will not be present in your room.
We would like our guests to feel at home while maintaining respect towards us and our house. We are a non-smoking household but you are welcome to sit on our front porch or out back to enjoy a cigarette!
We are a married couple, originally from New York. We have lived in Philadelphia for 8 years. And these are a few of our favorite things:
Travel - we love to move around and see new people, places, and things. Whether it is a trip to Europe or a walk around the corner to a new restaurant, we are happiest when we are exploring.
Matt's favorite travel destination: Ireland
Amanda's favorite travel destination: Yosemite National Park (or anywhere in California)
Books - we love to read. Matt is in grad school but sneaks in a short story by Neil Gaiman or some sort of fantasy novel when he gets the chance. Amanda will read a variety of fiction, but sneaks in a Harry Potter book between new books that are on her miles-long to-read list.
Matt's favorite book: Crime and Punishment
Amanda's favorite book: Les Miserables
Movies - like most couples, we don't always agree on what to watch. However, we both enjoy anything thought-provoking (Cloud Atlas is our most recent favorite!).
Matt's favorite movie: The Bourne Ultimatum
Amanda's favorite movie: She can't decide. (The Sound of Music, Forrest Gump, The Truman Show)
Food - we love to eat.
As hosts, we are very welcoming and genuinely wish to give our guests a nice stay! We are both introverted and on the quieter side, but enjoy getting to know new people. We hope to be able to share our knowledge and experiences of Philadelphia with you so that you may experience how amazing and unique our city is for yourself!
Life motto: Do what makes you happy.
