Good communication about how to lock the door, including Jared answering my call when the front door stuck.

Heather and Jared were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome even before we got to their home. Jared was nice enough to call us the day before and give us accurate directions and travel advice on taking the train from Philly to Cheltanham where their house is located. The neighborhood in Cheltenham is lined with beautiful houses and greenery, and is super quiet and very safe. The living space, as accurately described by our hosts, was small, clean, and functional. Everything was nice and cosy, and the bathroom for our use was tidy as well. Our hosts opened their home to us and let us use their kitchen, and were very helpful in giving us suggestions on great places to eat in the city. Although my husband and I had no trouble in walking the 15-20 mins from their home to the train station (Elkins Park station - about 25-30 minutes by rail from Center City, Philly), visitors who have trouble moving around would probably need a vehicle (Parking is available at the Elkins Park station), as would visitors who plan to travel during much colder/hotter times of the year. We really enjoyed our stay with Jared and Heather, and would definitely stay there when visiting Philly again!

Jared and Heather were lovely hosts. The property is on a quiet, safe, tree-lined street in Elkins Park, within walking distance of the nearby medical centre. There is room for parking, and Jared and Heather ensured I felt absolutely at home with access to the house and amenities whenever I needed, as if it were my own home. They were very considerate of my coming and going when I needed, as well as available in the evenings for a chat if I was around. There is also a lovely back garden if you are visiting in the summer and want to catch some rays! Jared is also a chef, and during my time staying there I came away with some delicious homemade sour cherry jam, and homemade sourdough bread! Can't recommend staying in this home more. Lovely hosts, cosy neighbourhood, spacious room, free access to the rest of the house as if it is your own. Thank you again Jared and Heather!
