Such a great house, kitchen and bathrooms have heated floors!!! There are a lot of steps but definatly doable and they add to the character of the home. Alice was amazing-very available if we needed anything and just overall a nice person. Would definatly recommend parking for the stay and and über or walk. There are lots of nice resturants in walking distance of the house. 5 stars!!!!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Great location, easy walking distance to restaurants and many attractions. The kitchen was great for breakfast at home and afternoon snacks.

Alice was so gracious as to provide a few groceries to help us out.

would definitely stay here on a return trip to Philadelphia.

Perfect Charm and Elegance

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this impeccably renovated trinity while the floors in our nearby house were redone. Our stay was a terrific respite from our construction project. We are from Philadelphia, and feel that a stay here affords a perfect feel for charming, historic Philadelphia trinity living, albeit with modern amenities.

Four of us stayed comfortably in the two beds and the Aerobed. (There is also a cot, but my youngest child and I shared one of the beds.) The beds were very comfortable.

From the backyard we saw lots of greenery visible from neighboring yards, and the seating provided a serene escape from the bustle of the city.

Everything you need or could reasonably want was provided in the house, which, through the owner's (or designer's) organizational skills, feels very spacious.

Whoever renovated the house has a meticulous eye for detail. For example, the heated floors in the bathrooms and even in the kitchen were a welcome luxury during the first real week of autumnal chill, and each room held at least one design element that delighted and surprised, such as the pulley to adjust the pendant light over the kitchen table or the third floor's original cast-iron bathtub with superb detailed feet.

Alice, the owner, whom we had not met before finding her house on HomeAway, is a treasure of charm and knowledge. Thank you for a delightful stay!

Cozy and quaint

We really enjoyed our stay. Alice went beyond the scope to make us feel at home. I would recommend and love to bring my husband back. The location is great access to shopping and restaurants.

An Enchanting Experience Full Stop

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many homes over the past 11 years in many countries with our 3 children. Our stay at Alice's home easily takes top honors.

From her initial responsiveness to waiting for us to arrive to showing us around to holding a parking space to the exquisite touches around the house including fresh flowers, we do not know how this stay to attend our daughter's graduation could have been any better.

We are now thoroughly spoiled as far as staying anywhere else in Philadelphia. Every possible amenity was within walking distance. The historic neighborhood, local coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants and proximity to Rittenhouse Square, a 10 minute easy walk, make this wonderful home and hostess what Homeaway is all about.

Thank you, from the very bottom of our hearts, Alice.

Owner's Response: What a terrific, accomplished family. It's so nice to witness siblings salute each others' triumphs. Tony and his daughter made the extraordinary effort to visit several weeks ahead of their stay. This allowed us all to plan for the best possible visit. I'm trying to find an occasion to visit Chicago to catch up...

Phildelphia's charming history

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, charming, blissfully quiet renovated row house. Pleasant neighbors. A few blocks from shopping & dining - ideal in every way. Thoughtful, generous host! Made us forget we were there to work. Living in the community is the best way for a rich, memorable experience.
