The SpaceThis is a private space in the basement of my house, and it has a separate entrance. The minimum stay is 3 days with the exception of weather related events when travelers may be stranded due to flight cancellations. I am willing to consider other arrangements.
When you first arrive, I will have three-days worth of breakfast items in the kitchen for your use, at no cost.
Parking: If available, park in the very front of the house, next to the driveway. Otherwise, street parking is on the side of the park, 100 feet from the house. Please do not park in front of other neighbors.

Check in after 3:00 and before 7:00 unless pre-arranged otherwise, and checkout by 11:00am. There is some flexibility, depending on the occupancy that day.

We are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Let us know what you need. I am friendly and accessible and can guide you as to what places to visit in the city. With previous notice, I will do pick up and drop off at the airport if possible (small car). Please call me once you land.
The apartment is fully equipped. There is a cooking stove and a microwave but no oven.
I will interact with guests if they so desire. Since the apartment has its own entrance, I will not normally disturb the guests unless they want to come up to the house and share some time with us. The only exception to this is if we have to access the heating, water and electrical systems which are all housed in the apartment. I will notify guests if this is necessary.
This is a family-oriented neighborhood. Most of the neighbors commute to the city (Philadelphia) using the SEPTA suburban train line.
You can walk to all services or you can take the train. There is limited bus service from the Morton train station and also buses from Baltimore Pike, which is a longer walking distance. If shopping at a supermarket you may need a car since the walk is around two+ miles. There is a convenience store (WaWa) within a reasonable walking distance (15 min.).
Things to do in or near Philadelphia: History,
Museums (art and medical oddities), Delaware River activities, Schuylkill River, Universities, the Philadelphia Zoo, the food, visiting the upscale neighborhoods. There is something for everyone. Guest AccessAll utilities are included (internet, and cable TV). Interaction with GuestsInteraction with guests is as much or as little as guests desires. What I mean is that we will leave you alone unless you want interaction. Mostly I will use text. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is safe and family oriented. It is located within walking distance to the suburban SEPTA Media/Elwin train line and ideal for commuting to Philly or to most major hospitals and universities.
