For me, the quality of a neighborhood rests on the relationships I have with all the people around it, and I find U. City an extremely active and supportive community. I appreciate the multi-cultural landscape, the expert gardening, the excellent restaurants, and also the neighborhood's convenience to transportation and close proximity to Center City. The tree-lined streets throughout the neighborhood are host to nice commercial amenities and options. There is an excellent thrift store and an array of cultural experiences - from middle eastern hookah lounges and eateries to a raw, vegan, African cafe. We have the fantastic Mariposa Food Coop with local and sustainable products, several bookstores, yoga studios, and shape-note singing. The neighborhood blossoms around the heart of our urban life: Clark Park. Concerts, theater, farmers market. NOTE: Be sure not to miss the neighborhood to the south of the apartment, particularly around Baltimore Ave. between 44th and 50th Streets.
FREE Street Parking is available outside the building; you can park overnight as well.
My apartment is 15-20 minutes drive from the airport. 15-25 min. to either 30th Street station or the bus depot by public transportation. There are buses, trolleys, the Market-Frankford line (Called the "El" by locals), and SEPTA's regional rail all within walking distance. If you don't know how to get somewhere, ask me. If an easy access location just outside the center city is important to you, this is a great option.
Popular mapping and GPS apps provide better directions to any of your destinations than I can. Many of these services even provide public transportation information.
Early Check-In/Late Check-Out
We do not offer early check in or late check out. If you want flexibility regarding check-in or check out times, simply book an extra night before or after your arrival or departure dates.
Also, it is not possible for me to offer early drop-off of luggage prior to check-in.
Please make sure the number of guests on your reservation is equal to the number of guests staying in the apartment.
Please speak to me about anything affecting your stay. I care about your comfort, and it is my pleasure to hear from you if there are any issues, preferably before guest reviews are submitted. We want to earn your five stars!
Cellphone Service reception: A few guests report having issues with an unreliable cell phone reception inside the apartment, particularly on Verizon's network. It was suggested that guests be advised to download a wifi talking app as a backup in case the cell phone network is poor.
