Overview

About the property

The Space:

Our home boasts original hard woods floors, fresh paint and tons of natural light. Enter the bedroom through french doors with a queen size memory foam bed, 4-drawer dresser and closet to store your things. The bathroom has a large vanity with lots of storage and a bathtub/ shower. Toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste and towels are available for use. The family room seats 6 people, has a record player, and features a 42" flat screen smart TV with access to Hulu plus, Netflix and an HDMI cable to stream live TV etc. The kitchen has a 4-top, eat-in table, dishwasher, convection oven, microwave, and garbage disposal. The sunroom, which seconds as a bedroom has a full-size, futon, in-unit washer and dryer, beautiful skylight and sliding glass door leads out to the private back yard. 2 adult-sized bikes are available with rental and are kept outside, covered for weather protection.

Guest Access:

Guests will have full access to the entire first-floor apartment and backyard with the exception of the unfinished basement.

Interaction with Guests:

Both my boyfriend and I will be available to answer any and all questions that you may have regarding the neighborhood, transportation, the pope itinerary or hidden local secrets. We have both been living in the Philadelphia area now for 5+ years. We will also prepare an informational packet to help you with specifics for your stay like where to eat, grocery shop and fun things to do in the area.

The Neighborhood:

East Falls is a small, quaint neighborhood situated slightly North West of the city. Is it the perfect distance away from center city in order to avoid grid-locked traffic but close enough to get any where in the city via train, bike or car. (more details in the "Getting Around" section) Anywhere that you would need to go is within walking distance of our home. There are several restaurants that include The East Falls Taproom that has open mic night featuring local musicians, Johnny Mananas, which has some of the best Margaritas, In Riva with stone fired pizzas, and Fiorino that serves authentic Italian cuisines, to name a few. For your convenience, Major Wing Lee's Grocery is a few blocks away and carries almost all essentials and across the street is BP gas station. Epicure cafe is a short walk away as well as Trolley Car Diner. Every Saturday morning there is a local farmers market that offers fresh, organic fruits and veggies.

East falls is located right on Kelly Dr. that parallels the Schuylkill River trail, which is a safe way to bike 20 min or drive 8 min to Fairmount Park, The Fairmount Art museum to see the Rocky statue and footprints or visit the famous Boathouse Row.

Getting Around:

The East Falls Train Station is just a 7 min walk or a 4 min bike ride away and costs $4 and takes only 10 min to get to center city. The first day the pope arrives he will hold Mass at Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul in the morning, which is a 10 min drive down kelly, a 30 min bike ride, or even a short train ride. The Festival of Families on Saturday is located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway which is just a 20 min bike ride.

Other Things to Note:

Guests will have full access to the entire first-floor apartment and backyard with the exception of the unfinished basement.

House Rules:

We expect for guests to keep our home cleanly and to treat the home as if it were your own. If the bed sheets could be stripped before you leave that would be helpful. We do not allow pets and there is no smoking allowed. You can smoke in the backyard and will need to properly dispose of the butts.
