The SpaceA wonderful 1000sq foot apartment and is the place I call home. It has a wonderful and cozy, sun drenched living room, a beautiful dining room with gorgeous Queen-Anne Victorian moldings and bump out, gourmet kitchen off the large side porch, a culinary garden, and large bathroom with washer and dryer.
When you arrive you will almost immediately feel at home, with a large dining table and plenty of books to read. A couch and stereo to relax and read the paper. French press for your coffee and plenty of room in the fridge and pantry items to make your own meals.
There is a super comfortable queen size bed for 2.
My apartment is the first floor of a large Queen Anne Victorian home in art enclave, Collingswood, NJ. There are 2 parking spaces behind the house. It is located just two blocks from the Theater district business section, that includes the James Beard nominated restaurant, Zeppoli and one of the best Indian food restaurants I know of Inde Blue. A short walk from the acclaimed theater, The Scottish Rite. It is about a mile away from 2 speedline stations that take you into center city Philadelphia, and 3 blocks from the bus stop that takes you there. 5 blocks from beautiful Knights Park, and within walking distance to Collingswood's hip downtown with restaurants, cafes, bakeries, library, farmers market, and shopping.
If you have a car, the apartment is 10 minutes to Center City via the Ben Franklin Bridge, and 5 minutes from South Philly via the Walt Whitman bridge. It is also 50 minutes from Atlantic City, on the Jersey Shore.
It would be my pleasure to guide you to some of the most beautiful and delicious locales in the area while you stay. If you have any questions please ask. I would love to help make your stay as easy and comfortable and FUN as possible!

Apartment is not suited for families with small children and unfortunately, will not be accepted. I recommend staying at the Haddonfield Inn for families.

However, this is not always the case, please specify your desired check in and check out times in your inquiry to book. You will be provided with instructions to retrieve the key.
I will be located off site during your stay, but I am accessible via email or text for any issues that may arise.
Check-out is equally as easy and flexible.

Please consider the rules of the house before booking. Thank you. The NeighborhoodWhat I love about my neighborhood and my house is the community spirit. Every weekend, especially Spring through Fall, there are many activities happening right in town. If it is not the weekly farmers market, it is the Bike Share fundraiser. If not that, it is the Second Saturday Arts Walk and Gallery shows. If not that, it is simply pleasant to walk in and around the town's streets seeing who is making what and exploring many of Collingswood's beautiful historic Victorians. I love the many delicious eateries, the Best of Sushi at Sagami, the James Bear nominated, Zeppoli, the best Indian in the Northeast at IndeBlue, the most colorful music scene at the Scottish Rite and The Factory. The list goes on! Getting AroundBikes? Yes, Bikes!:
Spring thru Fall Suggestion for FUN! Join the Collingswood Bike Share, 707 N Atlantic Ave Collingswood, NJ 08108 - while you are here. From their (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page "A $25 Collingswood Bikeshare Membership gets you a rented bike for 1 year which at the end you may renew again for another $25. Your Bike Share Bike gets free fixes during Bikeshare hours and you may trade it in for another bikeshare bike if your so wish." It's so cheap! Why not? The town is such a beautiful place to roam!
