The SpaceFun and warm couple love to host travelers in their unique home in the north Philly suburbs. Private safe wooded neighborhood. You will have a private room with either a King, Queen or twin sized bed and a bath shared with other guests, if any. Enjoy a cozy fire in the cool weather, and our azalea filled patio in the spring and summer.
As we mature as airbnb hosts, we find that we are best suited for longer term guests (2 weeks +). This is a perfect place to stay for doing medical rotations, or training at Salus, or doing an internship, or to stay while you find a more permanent home to buy or rent.
If we don't have longer term guests, we welcome overnight guests.
You are welcome to use the kitchen and laundry facilities. We stock healthy, delicious fruit, yogurt, coffees, teas, breads and cereals for you to enjoy before you set out on your Philly adventures.
This is an active home. Though the guest area is private, the public areas are where we live, eat and play. We have a lot of guests and you are likely to walk in on a people playing music and waltzing in the kitchen, especially when our daughter and her friends are here. If you are looking for a pristine hotel-like environment, this is not the place for you. It's clean, but lived in.
We have a sweet Cavalier Spaniel and 2 cats. Your well behaved pet is welcome, but check with us first. If your pet doesn't get along in the house, they will stay in your room.
Leave your car with us and take a quick 20 minute train ride to the heart of the city. We are also on a direct train route to the airport ( 50 minutes). One hour drive to Amish country, or to the wineries and antique shops of New Hope. Guest AccessGuests have access to the living room, dining room and kitchen as well as the outdoor patio for relaxing in nice weather. Laundry facilities are also available. Interaction with GuestsIf we are home, we interact a lot with our guests. Many become like family. We eat together, enjoy a drink in the evening, play music if you are into that sort of thing. Getting AroundWe are a 10 minute walk from the Septa train line that runs into center city philadelphia. Train takes about 20 minutes and costs $10-12 round trip. There are shopping areas within a mile walk from the house, but nothing right next door.
The area is great for walking in, enjoying the quiet neighborhood, grand turn of the century philadelphia homes, and two nice parks.
