Three-story, historic house built in 1890 in a quiet, residential area.

Your room is on the third-floor. There is a small, sunlit breakfast nook where you can enjoy some tea with your breakfast. The study area is a peaceful place for work. You will also have your own spacious bathroom with tub.

Your queen size futon bed folds up into a couch for relaxing while watching the Internet enabled TV.

The space

Please note there are two flights of stairs to access your private. Parking is on the street in front of the house. We are very close to the train station; it is only a five minute walk. The Septa Paoli/Thorndale train is two stops from Philadelphia.

Guest access

In the warm weather, there is a small, private garden off the main kitchen that you are welcome to use.

Other things to note

One of us works from home so there will usually be someone around to welcome you.

DUE TO A PLUMBING ISSUE, I WAS ACCOMMODATED ELSEWHERE, AT NO ADDITIONAL EXPENSE. YOLANDA WAS CONSISTENTLY PROMPT WITH COMMUNICATION AND I ENJOYED VISITING WITH HER DURING MY STAY... SUCH AN INTERESTING AND CHARMING WOMAN!

Yolanda's 3rd floor space was a great place to come back to after a long day exploring Philadelphia. Usually a 20-30 minute ride from Center City if timed right, the house was conveniently right off the train station. Everything we could have needed was on the 3rd floor, it was very clean and cute. Yolanda herself was welcoming and helpful in most of our interactions. Definitely a great value! As a tip, the train tickets are more expensive if you purchase them on the train ($6 to Center City) than if you purchase them in advance (about $4.40 to Center City on weekends/evenings).

The AirBnB space in Yolanda's house was very nice. I especially enjoyed having a private bathroom, which was very clean. I set the AC to the energy saving mode so it turned off eventually, so the AC didn't really bother me. Thanks Yolanda!

The place was exactly as listed, loved the quiet and clean neighborhood. The bathroom and private room were clean and neat. Easy check in and check out. We parked on the side of the house, relatively easy to find parking. Never met Yolanda.

About Yolanda

I am a woman from Spain that resided in Merion Station over 14 years. I work as a psychologist in Langhorne Pennsylvania and therefore commute quite a distance almost everyday. Because of limited quality time I am always busy engaging in activities around nature, sports and friends. I like to cook, gather with friends and dancing. I believe it is important to be tolerant, easy going and respectful of each other differences.
