Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We are a family of 4 and our son has moved out so we have his room to rent. We have lived in this house since 2001, and it's a little big for us now so we want to share it. We like this neighborhood because it's close to the city but feels like the suburbs. We have a cute Pomeranian rescue dog named Sherlock,who barks excitedly when you come in and doesn't bark untill you leave (unless you are vacuuming).
We are 2 blocks away from great sushi , grocery stores,coffee shops, and on a major bus line. It's a seven minute walk to the train station and a 20 minute train ride to get downtown. We are great location for variety of schools and universities. We welcome students and those on internships/residency rotation.
We can leave you alone or invite you to a meal, its your choice. We like entertaining and meeting new...

This beautiful house is in Melrose Park, PA. Our rooms were clean and house is loaded with art and culture. My wife Koki and I were amazed at the care, attention to little details and hospitality shown by Rayzel and Simcha. We connected in less than a minute and felt so welcome. Since we were new to town and came for our son's garaduation, Rayzel immediately helped us with directions, tips to go to U Penn and options (train, parking, etc.). Mr. Sincha Rafeal offerd us bottled water for night and made sure we had everything to feel at home.
Wished we had more time to chat with Rayzel and Simcha as we connected so well.

Management response:

It was a pleasure having you! drop in again sometime! Rayzel

Getting around
We are literally two blocks away from the city limit of Philadelphia, so have easy access to the city. We are near a great intersection of Korean groceries and restaurants, & coffee shops that are fun; Korean SPA is a world unto its own. Organic Creekside Coop is also nearby. There are many restaurants, within ten minute. We feel comfortable and safe here, even to walk at night.
Ten minute walk to train to Phily (about a 20 minute ride). Bus is convenient on Old York Road 611, main artery; 20 minute bus ride to Einstein Hospital; 25 min Temple . Seven minute to Salus and Arcadia . Near Teleos Leadership Institute, YIEP, churches and synagogues. Regionally central.
Car not needed
