Old historic 2-story row home located between the South Philadelphia Sports Complex (Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, Flyers) and Center City tourist attractions and universities (Temple, UPenn, Drexel), which are accessible by public transportation, Uber, Taxi, and by foot or bike. The Sports Complex is the home of the Wells Fargo Center, Lincoln Financial Field, and Citizens Bank Park where sporting and concert events are held.

All are welcome! LGBT-friendly.

Místo

The bedroom is compact and cozy, with DOUBLE SIZE BED (SMALLER THAN QUEEN, MATTRESS 54" x 75) computer desk, chair, chest of drawers, armoire, lamps and is the closest of the two guest rooms to the shared bathroom. Being in the back of the house, you don't have the street noise. However, you will hear the muffled sound of my neighbors getting their children up for school (about 8am). If you are a light sleeper, I've provided a "WHITE NOISE' machine in the room. But generally if you are here to see the city, you will fall asleep tired and wake up early to get out and explore.

These are high-end cotton futon mattresses (no box springs), which are encased in waterproof, allergy free covers that protect from mites and bedbugs and to keep the bedding clean and safe. BEDS ARE FIRM.

Linens, blankets, towels, soap, shampoo and hair dryer are provided.

Přístup pro hosty

You will have access to the living room to relax, visit, read, or watch TV. FASSSST WiFi and flat screen TV with HBO! Netflix.
Kitchen. NO COOKING IN THE KITCHEN: JUST HEATING UP, TOASTING. NO USE OF FREEZER. Your food should be stored in the refrigerator (bottom shelf), not in your room. You may eat left over food in the kitchen. However, there are several restaurants only a block away and a corner convenience store.
High Speed Internet wireless is available throughout the house for your convenience.
My basement bedroom is off limits and therefore there is no access to washer and dryer, which is in my private space. NO WASHING OF CLOTHES: YOU NEED TO GO OUT FOR THAT: THERE IS ONE ON WOLF AND 8TH STREETS, NOT FAR.

Vztahy s hosty

I respect your privacy and value mine. I am active in community volunteer work, so I will be in and out of the house, but always in the house at night. I keep abreast of things to do in the city and I love to give people local perspectives and suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants, and bars. Ask me if you want suggestions and want to chat. I love to meet new people and learn new things and share a little about myself and my life.

I will be entering your room to turn off the cooling/heating unit and to pick up the trash and any food that is open. Food should be stored in the kitchen.

Další věci, které stojí za zmínku

This home is not a place to party, but a place to relax and feel at home when you are not out exploring and enjoying what Philly has to offer.

There are steep steps to your room, so be careful.

The house is my beloved 100-year old vintage house that I am still working on restoring (not modernizing) but everything is in working order and although it may not look modern and glowing, I do keep it clean myself (don’t charge a cleaning fee). Yes it needs some paint. I love the plaster walls which muffle the sounds of my neighbors and the hardwood floors and cast iron radiator heat in the winter. I’ve placed a “white noise machine’ in each room because this is a row house in the city where some neighbors have loud voices. The house is not designed for Central Air. They cooled by just opening windows and heated by coal back in the 1920’s and I still have that coal box in the parlor. Each room has its own AC unit which is a MiniSplit: each of the 2 guest rooms and the downstairs living room. There is a remote in each room to adjust the temperature. Guests should do so in the living room also. I want to make that clear. The tub and sink are old. The tub was recently caulked and I wash the tile tub walls and clean the toilet daily. I use the toilet in my basement room. It is not a modern house and I never want a gutted, pristine house.

Suitcases heavier than 50 lbs or larger than airline standards must be left downstairs in the livingroom because the stairs and floors are soft pine and recently refinished. These heartwood red pine floors are over 100 years old and part of the charm of this vintage (older) home.

Also request that you remove your shoes before going upstairs to your rooms.

Not suitable for children (2-12 years). If you bring a child, they must not be left alone in the house; they must be with you at all times, their parent or guardian.

We had a great stay. Darlene was lovely and a very nice host. Bed was better than previously reviewed. Easy check in and easy to access. Usually around $5 uber to center city.

Good to hear. I added additional padding to the bed, so now not only is this cotton futon zipped into an expensive bed bug and mite protective bag but it has coushioning under it and also on top. Nothing synthetic, just natural materials. I'm glad for a solution.

Darlene's place is in an good location and parking was fairly easy to find. Cons This bed is a futon not a full size bed. Very little padding. It was like sleeping on plywood. The bathroom is shared between the owner, this room, and any guests that may be in the additional rented room. Very small space and you can hear any noise from other guests.

Thanks, I will revise my posting. I am sorry you felt mislead. I will update to say something like this. The house is my beloved 100-year old vintage house that I am still working on restoring (not modernizing) but everything is in working order and although it may not look modern and glowing, I do keep it clean myself (don’t charge a cleaning fee). Yes it needs some paint. I love the plaster walls which muffle the sounds of my neighbors and the hardwood floors and cast iron radiator heat in the winter.

I use the toilet in my basement room. It is not a modern house and I never want a gutted, pristine house with new tub and shower. Yes, the full size beds do not have box springs; they have high-end cotton futon mattresses encased in bed bug bags for your protection. I don’t like box springs and I sleep in those beds when guests are not here. For me, hard is better for the back. Very few people have complained about the beds. Full size beds may be too small to share, with the exception of love-birds, so I may change this to a room just for single people.

Host was very welcoming and description matched what I was expecting! A charming older house on a safe, quiet street in South Philly. Would definitely stay here again!

Darlene was super sweet and her home was very cozy. Her neighborhood is in a very central location - she suggested a great coffee shop a few blocks away that we really enjoyed. One thing I'd note is that the bed is very firm and may be uncomfortable for some. Otherwise our stay was great - the check in and check out process was seamless. Thank you for hosting us!

Tiffany, The next time you come, the bed will be a little softer. Thanks for your feedback.
