Comfortable Space in Beautiful Colonial

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We are a family of 4 and our son has moved out so we have his room to rent. We have lived in this house since 2001, and it's a little big for us now so we want to share it. We like this neighborhood because it's close to the city but feels like the suburbs. We have a cute Pomeranian rescue dog named Sherlock,who barks excitedly when you come in and doesn't bark untill you leave (unless you are vacuuming).
We are 2 blocks away from great sushi , grocery stores,coffee shops, and on a major bus line. It's a seven minute walk to the train station and a 20 minute train ride to get downtown. We are great location for variety of schools and universities. We welcome students and those on internships/residency rotation.
We can leave you alone or invite you to a meal, its your choice. We like entertaining and meeting new...

About the neighbourhood
We live on very walkable streets with beautiful 100 year old stone houses.
We are literally two blocks away from the city limit of Philadelphia, so have easy access to the city. We are near a great intersection of Korean groceries and restaurants, & coffee shops that are fun; Chung Dam Korean SPA is a favorite place of mine to relax and shut out the world. Organic Creekside Coop is also nearby. There are many restaurants, within ten minutes. We feel comfortable and safe here, even to walk at night.
Getting around
Ten minute walk to train to Phily (about a 20 minute ride). Bus is convenient on Old York Road 611, main artery; 20 minute bus ride to Einstein Hospital; 25 min Temple . Seven minute to Salus and Arcadia . Near Teleos Leadership Institute, YIEP, churches and synagogues. Regionally central.
Car not needed
How to get there
If you arrive by train, you come into the Melrose Park Station. Its about ten minute walk for our house or a $5 uber ride. There is also abus stop on 611/Old York Road about a block for our house. We are not in downtown Philadelphia, but are considered the ' old Suburbs', we were the country back in the day when they had horses and carriages, so we have a nice gardens. The actual city line is two blocks away, so we are close enough just not downtown.
