My apartment is at the back of a rowhouse and has 2 floors (one is on the ground level--not a walkup!), a private entrance, and a small outdoor area with a grill and places to sit.

It's located on a beautiful but active street in Center City, close to business and tourist areas but also very residential. There's a coffee shop across the street, a beer store on the corner, several restaurants within three blocks, and a Whole Foods two blocks away. I also have a private garage a block away.

This apartment is relatively large and very unique for a one-bedroom in this central part of the city. It's considerably bigger than a studio, and I have filled it up with a lot of random and interesting things over the last few years. Be prepared for some quirkiness, eccentricity, tools, and art supplies, but it's all kept orderly and clean. I want to be really upfront though that if empty modernism is your thing or you are looking for a hotel-like airbnb operation with no personal belongings, this is definitely not the place for you haha. This is old-school airbnb, like you're staying at a friend's house and there are clothes in the closets and pictures of my family on the walls.

When sending a reservation request I'd appreciate if you would include the reason for your trip to Philly (helps me feel like I know someone a little more now that airbnb is limiting the guest info with requests), when you think you're likely to arrive and depart (it's totally cool if that's 4 and 11, just easier to plan if I know), and whether you'll be parking a car in the garage (so I make sure I move mine to a resident permit spot during off hours and don't have to message each guest to ask after they make the reservation).

Ok now a little more about the place: There are two entrances to the apartment, one through the ground floor of the whole house and one private entrance through the garden and a gate from the street. On the upper/ground floor of the apartment is the bedroom, a large bathroom with a tub, and a small laundry room with full size washer and dryer (which you are free to use, but should tell me ahead of time so I don't leave unfolded clothes piled up in there). In the bedroom there is a queen-size bed, a small armchair, an office chair, and big desk with two monitors.

Heading down the stairs, there's a small landing with a door to go outside (this is the private entrance) and then further down is the kitchen/living room/den space. The room is spacious for a one-bedroom, but you wouldn't want to host a huge dinner party either. I can host about 6 people for dinner or watching a movie. There is a 55" tv mounted on a swivel, with an Amazon Fire stick that has a full cable lineup through YoutubeTV. The whole apartment has a high-speed wifi network too, and if you want to stream Netflix or something else from your laptop there is an hdmi cable nearby.

Outside the apartment, I've turned an alley and some empty space (that only I use because of the private entrance) into a bit of a patio. There are plants and a propane grill that you are welcome to use.

For sleeping arrangements, there is a queen bed, a pull-out ikea couch that turns into a queen-size sleeper, and also a single air mattress. I've listed this apartment for up to 4 people because while there is plenty of space for 4 people to exist and hang out, realistically it's a little tight if you don't want to share the sleeper sofa. Having the air mattress blown up monopolizes most of the floor space downstairs, so you kind of have to expect to take that down if you're staying multiple nights and using more than the pull-out sofa.

I also rent a parking garage that is about a block away from my apartment on a small side street. If you're coming to Philly with a car I can give you the address and door code for that and you can drive immediately to the garage and leave your car in a safe private garage. It's much much easier than street parking and more convenient than the big garages that restrict hours or block in your car. Use of the garage is included with the reservation, but I do appreciate knowing in the reservation request if you'll be using it or not. It's about 50/50 over the past few years whether my guests drive into the city or fly in and don't have vehicles. IMPORTANT NOTE: The garage is very wide but the clearance height is only 5'10" because of how the door was installed and my landlord is not interested in paying to fix it. This fits a car or small suv not problem but if you have a large truck or van, please do not try to pull into the garage because it will destroy the door. If you're planning to bring very tall vehicle you'll have to park somewhere else.

Lastly if you're interested in borrowing bikes on your trip, I have several extras in the garage and would be happy to set you up with some for your stay. It would be good to include that in your request though so I am sure I have enough in good working order before you arrive.

When I have a guest, I stay at my boyfriend's house (10 minutes away) so you will have the entire apartment to yourself. There is a small but very well-supplied kitchen and an outdoor grill that you are welcome to use, as well as laundry in the unit.

I'm trying to make this a non-smoking apartment, I'm really sorry but if you are planning to smoke on your visit to philly I would ask that maybe you consider staying somewhere else. I had multiple experiences when I started hosting where guests smoked right outside the side door, and then immediately opened the door letting in smoke, sitting on the furniture, and the whole apartment smelled like cigarettes for days after they left. I sincerely apologize and I respect your right to smoke but a hotel is much better equipped to get rid of these smells than I am so please just consider staying somewhere like that.

Lokasi

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Amerika Syarikat

I am close to just about everything in Center City (what we call our collection of five or six neighborhoods in the middle of town). Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are a 15-minute walk or 2-minute uber/cab ride away, and the main business district and the convention center are about the same. I'm also one block from the Pennsylvania Hospital and three blocks from the main Jefferson buildings if you are going there for work/interviewing/treatment.

In general I enjoy playing tour guide and would be happy to give you advice on things to do during your stay. My neighborhood also has some of Philly's best restaurants and nightlife, and I could provide recommendations for both. I am especially close to what all Philadelphian's call our "Gayborhood," and it's an easy walk home from Philadelphia's gay bars and clubs. But Philly is a compact city in general, and it won't usually take you longer than a few minutes to get anywhere you want to go by cab (or bike!).

I'm a teacher and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania and have lived in Philadelphia for seven years. I grew up in Ohio, went to undergrad in North Carolina, lived in DC for two years, then moved to Philly for grad school. My hobbies are ultimate frisbee, fixing up old bikes, and lots of random art projects. If you stay at my place, be prepared for a lot of art supplies. I keep them orderly, but there's always something I'm working on.

Semasa penginapan anda
I generally prefer to meet guests to give them keys and show them around, but if that is not possible based on our schedules I will give you a code to access keys in a lockbox and additional instructions. Besides that, the place is all yours! In the summer I will need to stop by once per day to water the flowers outside, but I won't be coming inside the apartment.

I have set default check-in and check-out times as 4pm and 11am, but I am pretty flexible and would be happy to discuss your circumstances if you ever need to arrive earlier, leave later, or store bags for extra time before a flight. Just let me know what you're thinking and we'll see what we can work out.
