Nicely remodeled 3 bed/1.5 bath house, this listing is for the small & quiet back bedroom. On a bus line from Center City, plenty of parking, laundry, central A/C & heat, no pets, no TV. This listing is for a private room in a shared house that my fiance and I live in full-time, so it is not a good option if you're looking for hotel-style privacy; This is best for folks who want to say hello and live like a local!
Please read the full description below before booking.
This is a small, simple room in a 3-bedroom row house on a nice block in the Point Breeze neighborhood of South Philly. It is 10-15 minutes from the city center. This is the back room, so pretty quiet. Notes on the space:
-This is my full-time home; If you stay with me, please introduce yourself and say hello!
-You would be sharing a full bathroom with two other people. There is also a half bathroom for guests to use.
-This room gets morning light. It has a shade & curtains but it's still light!
-The queen bed is medium-firm and in new condition. Bedding is hypo-allergenic and there are protective covers on the pillows & mattress for safety & comfort.
-Cotton sheets, down alternative duvet, and 4 soft, medium, and firm pillows. Carpet is soft and plush.
-I only use unscented biodegradable laundry soap if you're sensitive to that.
-There is a closet with hangers & shelf, and a wooden bench with shelf that's good for a suitcase.
-Hardwood floors and plenty of wall outlets. The house has wifi.
-The kitchen is newly remodeled and you are welcome to use it. The washer/dryer are in the laundry room behind the kitchen, along with access to the backyard.
-There are table and chairs in the backyard for guest use and there's a garden!
-I keep my house TV-free, but if you would like to watch media, I do have a guest laptop available upon request that you can use to surf the web and watch Netflix or DVDs.
I encourage guests to use the house and feel at home. This listing is for a private 2nd-floor bedroom with full access to the common spaces downstairs:
-Electronic keypad entry for 24-hour check-in
-1.5 baths shared with two people
-Backyard with garden & table for 2
Общение с гостями
This is our private home and we love meeting & welcoming guests! We offer plenty of privacy, but do ask that guests just briefly introduce themselves and say hi if we're around during their stay.
This listing is best for folks who want to share a small home and be friendly and personable. I am happy to answer questions, get you situated, and hang out, but I also have a very busy schedule that keeps me out of the house more than I would like so my availability is often limited to text messages. My fiance and I both work weekdays and are sometimes gone from the house for a few days, but if we're around I love to chat, give recommendations on food & activities and learn about guests. Privacy is also important to us and we are very respectful of personal space. We won't seek out guest interaction unless you're in the communal space downstairs.
1. Front & back doors must remain locked at all times. Locks are manual
2. No shoes are allowed in the house. There is a shoe rack inside the front door where you can leave your shoes & use guest slippers
3. No drugs allowed on the premises
4. No smoking inside whatsoever
5. No outside guests are allowed at the house
6. Please observe quiet hours between 12 AM and 8 AM
Other than those rules, I just ask that you clean up after yourself, don't use any of my personal items, and have fun!
I'm a world traveler who has unexpectedly settled down in my birth city. I now work and live within Philly and prefer exploring our local treasures to airplanes and long-distance travel. I love high up places, plants, forests, the beach, yoga, meditation, psychology, gardening, great food, speaking Spanish, sweets, gentle music, and learning.
I'd like to go back to India. I also want to explore more tropical beaches like Maldives, Seychelles, and Caribbean islands. Italy & Croatia, too. I've mostly only backpacked on a budget, but some day it might be fun to do something a little more opulent. I love spending time outside.
At my best, I'm a direct, no-nonsense person and I love meeting new people. I'm happy when I get to share a cup of tea or a drink if you stay with me. My house is small so it's important to me to be friendly and sociable with guests, as I would housemates. Still, I have a very busy schedule and enjoy privacy (as much as possible in a row house), so if you stay with me you'll get plenty of that too.
