Gorgeous 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of West Philly. 3rd floor corner unit with tons of windows and natural light. Tastefully decorated and full modern amenities! 1.5 blocks from public transit/restaurants/parks/coffee.

The space

An open floor plan with kitchen and living/dining area create an airy living space. The large and numerous windows give this home a light and calm feel. House plants give the apartment life!

In the living space there is a teak dining room table that seats 6 and a modern sofa and chaise lounge for relaxing, playing games or watching TV. You will relish coming back to this space after a day in the city. Powder room and coat closet are off the living space. The kitchen has granite counter tops, new stove, oven, toaster, fridge, and microwave, and is fully equipped with cookware for dining in if you chose.

The bedrooms are bright and comfortable. One bedroom has a full-sized bed and the other has a full-sized (comfortable!) sofa bed. Make sure to check out the view from the east facing windows! A full-sized air mattress is also available. The bath in the back has marble counters, a tub, and laundry.

Hardwood floors throughout, modern amenities, recessed lighting, beautiful windows, and a spacious design. This apartment is classy and comfortable!

Aviva's place was the best BNB I have ever stayed in! The location was incredible to downtown philadelphia and in an area with cafes in walking distance. The amenities inside the unit were incredible along with the easy check in process. The building was very quiet as well which we loved.

Aviva made us feel welcome and left a great note explaining all details about her place and things to keep in mind. Make sure to review the note while getting settled. The views from the windows were also great. The apartment is accessible to local main streets and shops; also on your way to UPenn and downtown Philly. I was able to relax, watch TV and netflix and take a nice long nap.

Went to philly for a weekend and stayed at Aviva's place, her place was very clean modern, trendy and EXTREMELY spacious. When we walked in we immediately noticed how beautiful the living room was. Although we didn't use the huge kitchen much, the counter tops were all marble! There are 2 bathrooms that were super clean as well. I immediately picked her place instead of the rest because of the pictures of her bathroom. Trust me choose her place in philly and you will have a wonderful stay. It's only about 15 minutes away from south philly where all the good touristy things are. After staying here, this is the kind of apartment I wish to have one day.

Most pictures of homes or apartments tend to look better than what is actually seen. Aviva's apartment, despite having great pictures, looked better than expected. It was spotless, simply decorated with modern touches. As far as the location goes, I would say that this apartment is in the heart of Philadelphia - no fancy suburbia nonsense here. We were able to find a great place to get coffee, a wonderful food co-op, and a brewery with spectacular food; all within a 5 minute walk. While the apartment and the location were great, it's really the host that made our stay special. As with life, sometimes things don't turn out the way you'd like them to, however, it is the way one responds to challenges that determines the outcome. Such was the case the day we arrived. It was a scorcher and the AC went out. Upon arrival, Aviva's mother was waiting for the AC repair person. As luck would have it, the part to make the repair wouldn't be available until after our trip was over. What happened next truly defines the type of host that Aviva is. Rather than telling us there was nothing that could be done, her parents showed up later that evening with an AC unit that they installed while we waited. This kind of care and concern just isn't very common these days. Aviva (and her parents) turned a challenging situation into an opportunity to make things work. I would highly recommend this host and apartment to anyone seeking a great stay in Philadelphia!

This is a great apartment, spotless, well appointed, and very comfortable. It is ideally located for visiting Philadelphia, with everything easily and quickly accessed by public transport. Aviva is an excellent host, promptly answering all our questions, and making sure every little detail is covered. We highly recommend this listing and definitely intend to be back.
