Owner's Response: Wonderful, wonderful guests. This lovely family left the house in perfect order - perhaps even tidier than they found it. I hope they will relocate to Philadelphia. They would be a real asset to the city.

Charming house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a quirky, charming house in a great location/jumping point for all city attractions. The home has all the architectural fun of a house built in the 1800s, but with modern amenities. Alice, our host, was gracious and attentive. The house does require some dexterity as it has a steep, spiral staircase, but with the ropes alongside it was not a problem. The heated floors in the basements and bathrooms were a nice touch! Oh, and the beds were super comfortable (pillows, comforters, etc..) Highest recommendation!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. Hope you will return in nicer weather. I'd love to show you more of the city and explore all the "news" and the best places for cheese steaks!

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this lovely Rittenhouse Trinity home while visiting from out of town to attend a family function. Alice met us upon arrival, gave us a tour of the home and left us with some useful information for use during our stay. The home was immaculate with every conceivable amenity. We really appreciated the chilled bottle of wine along with the sticky buns our first night and although we did not partake of the various breakfast items (great restaurants in the area) it was a wonderful, thoughtful touch.

As a native Philadelphian, it was a real treat to visit after so many years with my daughter and show her some sights. Alice's home was the icing on the cake! We enjoyed our walks around Rittenhouse Park as well as breakfast out at Little Pete's, dinner at Barclay Prime and cocktails and assorted hor d'oeuvres at Parc.

This home is perfect for those who have no mobility issues. The stairs were spiral and the handrail is a huge nautical rope!

Thanks Alice for a memorable stay.

Owner's Response: Oh boy! If I could choose my own relatives, I would choose these terrific women. So nice to see a mother and daughter enjoy time together - wish I had joined them - maybe next time?

Christmas in the City

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas 2015 and it was a magical, magical time! We usually stay with family, as they are all there, but as our immediate family has grown, we wanted to find a place for the 6 of us and enjoy the city. This is a beautiful house, full of old charm. It is exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. We loved our time at Waverly Place and had a wonderful Christmas!

Owner's Response: What a truly delightful family. I hope they will return, if not to stay at least for a visit. - perhaps to enjoy the newly created garden. One could not host more thoughtful guests!

historic and super clean

  • 5 of 5

It was like stepping back in time but in a good way. The house had been lovingly remodeled keeping the historic elements but with the modern comforts

that make ones stay pleasant. I enjoyed my mooring coffee in the basement kitchen looking out to the small garden. The location was perfect with bus connections very easy. You could walk to most places and enjoy the lovely neighborhood. I would suggest that if you stay more that a day or two more places

to put things would be great. The storage was tight. I would also suggest a wall hook for the hand shower on the top bedroom bath. Other than that I would

recommend it in a heartbeat

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet these lovely guests. If we lived closer to one another, I would certainly enjoy their company. They also treated the house thoughtfully and left everything in perfect order. Their comments are welcome and I am working to incorporate their suggestions. One could not wish for better visitors.
