This newly renovated modern retro-chic studio in University City, West Philadelphia is perfect for the blogger, student, business traveler, or couple visiting the city! We usually have on street parking readily available within a block of our home- parking is free on 40th St. We have wifi available, and a smart TV with Netflix, Hulu, and Prime memberships. We are surrounded by a number of great restaurants and cafes. Check our Welcome Guide for a detailed list of recommendations!

The space
The space includes a queen sized bed, couch, a kitchenette, and 2 small tables. Our cozy window corner is perfect for the daydreamer or writer with beautiful vintage spinning chairs and great natural lighting. In addition to the smart TV, there is an Alexa dot in the room (on the windowsill behind the bed) you may use to play music, or ask the weather. We have everything you could need in our kitchenette including ceramic non-stick pots and pans, strainer, mixing bowls, measuring cups and a baking sheet as well as a full fridge, freezer, and microwave.
We have an original clawfoot tub in our bathroom that may be difficult for some. This studio is perfect for a night in or a night out, or a full weekend of both! To the guests who don't want to leave, you may take advantage of our chairs and table on the front porch for some quality people-watching on busy 40th Street.

We are in walking distance to downtown university city as well as U-Penn, Drexel, CHOP, Art Museum (Rocky Steps), Fairmount Park, and all the local Lancaster Ave and 40th Street shops! We are just a few blocks away from 40th St Subway Station, making it an easy commute to get into center city, or the suburbs. Just feet away from the bus and trolley lines, our location is ideal to those who use public transportation to get around! Simply catch an Uber for a quick drive to the airport, Manayunk, Fishtown, sports stadiums, center city, or any of our other near-by attractions.

During your stay
We both work from home most of the time, and love meeting our guests, and giving small tours of the neighborhood when we are available! We also have a 2-year-old pet corgi who LOVES meeting new people and has a small case of FOMO (fear of missing out). We also understand some appreciate the escape from people, so enjoy our small cozy studio away from home and pamper yourself!

If there is anything you need during your stay- a charger, some extra creamer, or some corgi cuddles, let us know and we will be happy to help!
