I am a med student and did a rotation at Cooper, so I stayed here for a month. Christina was a wonderful host, she made sure I had everything I needed and was very accomodating. Her home is lovely and so comfortable, and mango the cat is a delight to come home to. The train is about a 10 minute walk away and so convenient to take into Philly and to Cooper hospital, it runs all night. Collingswood itself is a small, quaint, New England town with a lot of restaurants, and it was like a real-life "Stars-hallow" from the show Gilmore girls. I really enjoyed my stay!

I'm a traveling hospital worker and have stayed here since early May. Christina's house worked perfect for me. It is right on the bus line and train for Cooper Hospital. The bed slept wonderfully and the front porch is great for drinking coffee and reading. Knight park and Newton lake are close and great for walking or running. Lots of choices for food with multiple restaurants within walking distance or cook in the kitchen. Great stay!

Christina's house was wonderful! So much so I stayed a little longer. Christina and Mango the cat are gracious and accommodating hosts. The location to town, parks and transportation is wonderful, just a short trip to Philly. Thanks Christina

Christina's home is in a quaint neighborhood with great shops and restaurants to check out. Its also right near the PATCO fast train into downtown Philly. I couldn't believe how fast it was to get around! Such a great stay! I highly recommend booking with Christina

Christina was an awesome host! I enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. The bed that was provided was very comfortable and made the nearby train a non-issue. The blackout shades helped a lot too. Christina made me feel at home which made my stay enjoyable. Mango the cat was also a gracious host (-:

Working in customer service since I was a child, beginning in my father's retail store, has given me a love and ease of meeting new people. I believe we can all learn from each other, if we are open and nurture our curiosity. I enjoy creating a cozy, eco-friendly space for my guests. You are welcome to stay in my unique cabin-like bungalow that I have lived in since 2004. I will give you ample privacy, but I am available if you desire a chat, travel advice or suggestions of restaurants in downtown Collingswood.
