Other things to note
This is a two story home so the bedrooms are located upstairs. There are no bedrooms on the first floor. I mention this for those who have a hard time walking up the stairs.
The home is equipped with Comcast X1.
You do not need to bring linens as I provide all of them for you.
We have three amazing older dogs, so if you have allergies to animals you will not be ok in the common spaces. The dogs do not go in the guest rooms. We have two chihuahuas and one german shorthair pointer. Everyone loves them, we hope you will too!
A few items to keep costs low and accommodations comfortable:
• This is our home, so please treat our home as if it were your own.
• Please take your shoes off before entering the house, we try to keep our home very clean for you and our guests.
• No pets allowed, sorry. Three dogs are already a crowd. :)
• No smoking in the house or on the premises. I have asthma and it affects me terribly. If guests smoke in the premises they will be immediately evicted and charged a $250 fee (or more if it is warranted) to clean up the smoke odor.
•Place all used sheets and towels on the floor in your room prior to check out.
• Wash dishes and return borrowed items to their original locations.
• Must be quiet after 11 pm; we live in a residential neighborhood.
• Do not pick up the chihuahuas. :) Let them come to you, please.
•No loud parties or gatherings allowed.
•Return anything you borrow.
•If you break it, you pay for it.
•We are not responsible for injuries, accidents, losses or anything that might happen to you while staying here.
•Help us to conserve energy & keep our prices low, when you leave the place, turn off all lights, fan, heat & A/C.
•Please don't use our white towels to take off make-up (it stains, especially mascara) or to clean around. If towels are found stained upon check-out, each stained towel will be charged $5 off your damage deposit. We are not a big hotel with big industrial washing machines & we prefer not to have to use harsh detergents or chemicals in our loads.
•All extra services have to be paid in cash before check out.
•Drug use in Philadelphia is illegal, if you choose to go against the law; you are solely responsible for it.

Hello. I am Chrissy and I live just a few blocks away from where you will be staying if you book with me, unless of course, you want to stay at our home which we open up for guests as well. I've lived in Philadelphia now for 17 years so you can lean on me for suggestions and recommendations. Dave grew up in Philadelphia so he knows a lot more about Philly than I do. We can tell you where to go and where to steer clear. I went to a local Philadelphia art school and loved the city so much I stayed! I currently work in center city as a commercial interior designer and have a passion for art and design. Dave owns his own business and does coaching and consulting for small business owners and start up companies. I enjoy entertaining, drawing and painting, dining out, home improvements and traveling. My husband, Dave, enjoys all sports and even plays in a soccer league in Philly. We both enjoy entertaining and Dave is a fabulous cook if you ever get to try his food on a night you happen to stay at our home! We found this to be quite fun meeting people like you. It is our goal to make you a happy guest and that you are comfortable staying at our homes.
