A diamond in the rough. This gem of a house is conveniently located near a highway access point as well as a block away from the train station (2 min walk, 15min ride to downtown Philly). The house was perfect, more than enough space for our 16 guests, extremely clean, and toiletries were provided. North Philly is not the most scenic of areas but my guests and I had 0 issues. I would definitely recommend this house to friend looking for somewhere convenient and affordable to stay while in Philly. PS – Be sure to check out Lee’s Breakfast spot!

 What Ben loved about this listing: 

– Very clean – Spacious – Access to public transportation

What Ben thought we could improve about the experience:
Would have been nice to have access to the backyard.

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Dave et Victor. Ils sont aux petits soins pour vous (nous avons eu un problème de four micro-ondes qui a été réglé dans la journée, super). Les voisins sont très polis et prévenants. L’appartement est superbe, spacieux et propre dans un quartier calme. Toutes les chambres sont climatisées et comportent un dressing. Le sèche-linge et lave-linge sont à votre disposition quand vous le souhaitez. Merci beaucoup Dave pour tous les renseignements et votre accueil. We had a great time at Dave and Victor. They are very caring for you (we had a problem with a microwave that was set in the day, great). The neighbors are very polite and considerate. The apartment is beautiful, spacious and clean in a quiet area. All rooms have air conditioning and a dressing room. The dryer and washing machine are available whenever you want. Dave thank you very much for all the information and your welcome.

The place is good, people who live around is nice black people. You only need to take 10 minutes to the city center. You will have another two nice roommates.

Dave was a great host! His instructions were very clear and concise. Upon arrival we encountered a very large set of stairs. You’re essentially walking up to the third floor, but being that we were all in our early 20s this wasn’t an issue. The apartment was incredibly clean and much bigger than I had initially anticipated. We had to mess around with the cable for the tv a little bit but it was nothing too tedious. The neighborhood is sketchy, but we weren’t around the area for most of our stay so we managed. We had a rental car and parking wasn’t an issue because the street is pretty long. The communication between myself and Dave throughout our stay was great, he is an incredible host.

What Crystal loved about this listing:
The apartment was beautiful and very clean

What Crystal thought we could improve about the experience:
Ensure the cable is working prior to guest arrival

Great apartment will all the mod cons, very spacious 3 double beds! However please google the neighbourhood it’s situated in.. “west allegheny avenue” we didn’t feel safe walking down our road or even out of our house! Please research this before booking.

I stayed for 5 days at this location. It is very clean unit with easy access to the city. The communication with Dave was prompt and thorough. The stay was great and Dave (and company) are great hosts!

Rented the top two floors of Dave and Victor’s North Philadelphia apartment for a bachelor party of 11 guys, and the place was a huge hit! The two apartments were immaculate, and it’s obvious these guys have put a lot of time into making them great places to live. Access to public transportation was brillian, as the Subway was a 3 minute walk awa; the ride to the Sports Complex was about 25 minutes – a total breeze! We utilized the large cement porch for grilling and recreation. The neighborhood was colorful, especially at night, but everybody who went by seemed friendly and we never felt unsafe. Only a few minor misses (lack of central refrigerator, slight issue with hot water), but nothing that derailed our great weekend in this fantastic city! Thanks to Victor and Dave for their prompt responses to my questions, and for letting 11 guys into their apartment for a weekend!

What Alexander loved about this listing:
Loved the units overall, it’s obvious you guys put a lot of time and quality into the renovation. Loved the access to public transportation as well. Loved the WiFi internet.

What Alexander thought we could improve about the experience:
Would be nice to have a central refrigerator if possible, and cable TV would be an added luxury, but not a necessity. Hot water was out on the first day, then scalding hot on the second day, then colder on the third. We made it work, but it may be something to check. I noticed too that when the shower levers were turned to “Hot” the water was coldest, and when the levers were turned to “Cold” the water was hottest. Again, didn’t derail the weekend, but something to look into. Thanks for everything!

My group had a great experience with Dave. Dave was more than accommodating for date changes and check in/check out support. The house was even more spacious than we had originally expected, and there was even some private outdoor space out back. The neighborhood is complete with great restaurants, a fun nightlife and is in general a great area of Philadelphia. The house is located a block away from the Tasker Morris Stop on the Broad Street Line of the SEPTA subway system, so getting to and from all corners of the city could not be easier. I cannot recommend this location and its host enough for anyone that is looking to experience all of the amazing aspects of Philadelphia but does not want to stay in the touristy hustle bustle of downtown Center City. This is for those who want to explore the real city!

What Andy loved about this listing:
It’s location, price, cleanliness, amenities, size and support from the hosts.

What Andy thought we could improve about the experience:  
Not a thing!

Very nice trip.

The house was great with plenty of room. It was within walking distance to a bunch of restaurants an bars in the east passyunk area. I highly recommend this place.

Carla Haskell

Dave’s place was an oasis for us as we attended all of the graduation ceremonies for my son. The apartment was super clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The cook area was spare but we ate out most of the time anyway. Being on the third floor- the stairs were pretty long. My 78 year old mother was going to join us but she fell ill and could not attend. I was pretty glad that happened because the long stairs would have been an obstacle for her. They were not a problem for us. The air conditioning was also nice on some warmer nights.

What Carla loved about this listing:
Thank you Dave it was a great place for us. I hope you saw our note about the condensation coming from the air conditioner in the kitchen!

Appartment was recently renewed, spatious, clean and comfortable. We had a nice time, Dave and his team were happy to assist our querries and let us check in earlier. House is close to the subway and 6-7 stops to the town center, so not the place to go to if you want something walking distance to the center. Neighborhood is a bit dodgy at night, but you’re safe if you take a taxi home.

Clean space and gracious hosts! Everything was easy with this stay! We had a group of ten youth and two adults. They even left the kids ice cream, fruit, water, chips and a big bowl of candy!! lots of street parking, spacious rooms, towels and cleaning supplies are provided. We really enjoyed our stay! Not many walking distance stores or places to eat after 9/10pm.

Private Feedback:
the fridge in the back room makes lots of noise! the lock box was difficult to open.

My two friends and I recently stayed at Dave’s apartment in Philadelphia. It was great experience. The apartment was completely furnished and ready for us. The host was available to answer our questions and responded quickly! We could not have asked for a more convenient place to stay. The apartment was close to the bus stop (1 block) and local restaurants were within walking distance. I would definitely recommend staying with Dave and we will look him up the next time we take a girls trip.

David

David Simmons

This row home is perfect for a large group. This is the second time I have stayed in one of Dave and Victor’s places in Philadelphia. They are perfect hosts. They basically hand over the keys and are available only if I need them. The apartment was a fantastic fit for my group’s needs. We were a group of 7 friends and we have plenty of room in this large studio apartment. The building is located right near Little Italy. They are truly a testament to the airbnb community. If I am back in Philly in the future, I will absolutely stay here again!

Private Feedback:
Everything was wonderful! Thanks so much.

Dave and Victor were great hosts! They were quick to respond to any questions we had leading up to our trip to Philadelphia and were easy to reach by phone or text while we were there with any questions we had. They also worked with us so we could check in early, which was very nice. The apartment was just right for our group and a great deal! We used the 2 beds upstairs and the 2 futons downstairs so everyone in our group of 4 had their own bed to sleep on. It was nice to have kitchen space. We didn’t do any cooking, but we took advantage of the coffee maker and fridge/freezer for snacks and drinks. The bathroom was clean, and it was nice to have clean towels and a hair dryer provided for us, so we did not have to worry about packing those items. And the price could not be beat – all hotel options we were looking at would have cost us more. The apartment location was perfect! We were within easy walking distance to the historic sites, the city center, and public transportation that could get us down to the sports arenas. The neighborhood was really nice – lots of restaurants and shops without being touristy.

Dave was a great host! He was very easy to communicate with and accommodating to our group’s needs. We had no issues getting in and out of the place. The apartment was exactly as pictured – nice, clean, and spacious. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this apartment!

We had a very good experince staying here. Dave was very flexible in letting us checking in a little earlier than the usual time. We had no trouble getting into the apt. Communication was very good. The upstairs sleep area is roomy and the beds are comforable. We had nice new clean towels to use. Great location. Would stay here again.

We received prompt and courteous communication before and during our stay. The renter was readily available to answer our questions and made a special trip to the apartment to double check the Netflix reception. The apartment was adequately clean and equipped with basic essentials. .

It was a nice space spending time with friends. We enjoy there with six peoples and the place is just fit all of us in with amenities we need. I love pantry adjacent to living area that we all can have a small party and good breakfast. Also, it is a nice location we can walk to many restaurants park and shopping place and also not far from bus. Moreover Dave and Victor are such nice hosts that took care all of us. You can feel free to ask them a question they are friendly.  Thx for letting us stay. It was a nice place. One thing is the bathroom door is quite hard to close and entrance is quite scared. But your room is great. I love that you provide Netflix and wii 🙂

Our family had a great experience dealing with David and Victor. They were excellent hosts and communicators. They answered messages right away and provided quick solutions to all of our requests. They gave us great advice about taking cabs to and from the city when public transportation wasn’t available. They were very flexible with our check-in and check-out times. The price was amazing for the fact that we could all stay together and be close enough to the city. Definitely would recommend to anyone with a large party. The apartment was very spacious and very beautifully decorated. Our group of 8 felt very comfortable and warm. They gave us a binder full of great information and maps to get around. Having the subway station close to the apartment made it easier for us to get to center city. The convenience stores were also close. We ended up having to use the laundry room and it was nice to have it already included in the apartment rental. Can’t say enough how much we enjoy our stay. Thank you guys!

The apartment was great – very convenient to the convention center and Reading Terminal Market, and checking in and out was incredibly easy. The apartment can get a little cold, and there’s a little more street noise than you’d expect because the apartment overlooks the Vine Street Expressway, but all said it was fantastic. Don’t forget to bring your own towel, washcloth, and toiletries!  Thanks again!

We had a great time at Dave’s place. While the apartment is on the smaller side, it was very cozy! There were more than enough sleeping arrangements for our party, which was great! In addition, this apartment is in a great location! We would definitely stay here again.

Dave was an excellent host and communicator. It made checking in and out a breeze. The place was in a nice spot (especially if you were catching the bus in or out of Philly) and most things were all in walking distance. It was a little old and cold, but it had all the amenities that you would need. A nice little place that is well set up for the traveler. Thanks again Dave!

We had a great stay with a group of 5 of us. Upstairs beds were very comfy, bathroom was clean. Kitchen’s a bit small for any group cooking, but we made it work! Had a great time, and the board games were fun too. Excellent location for sightseeing if you’re a tourist.

Dave Parker’s apartment is located in walnut street so that the traffic is very convenient. We could easily go to city hall, independence hall, chinatown etc. Also, Dave provided a lot of stuff in his apartment so that life is easier there, like Wii and some small interesting toys. The place that stored keys was interesting. It was in the paddle lock outside the house. I just want to say thank you to Dave who pointed out where I can find the key. Any rate, I strongly recommend this apartment because of the convenient transportation, the large apartment and nice host.

The place was clean and comfortable, and exactly as described, we found everything we needed, including all kitchen ware and appliances, towels, even parking spots for our large van just a few steps away. We visited Philadelphia with a group of friends from work and decided to stay here for our long weekend. We were 7 including a little kid. Dave was very responsive all the time, answering messages right away and providing quick solutions to all our requests. Definitely recommendable!

Dave’s place in Washington Square in Philly was perfect! Great location situated near plenty of nightlife and walking distance to many attractions, restaurants, bars, etc. Dave is a great host! He’s organized, responsive, accommodating and his place had all the little amenities one could ask for….. including a cold beer in the fridge on arrival! 🙂 We were six people and we all slept very comfortably…. though with all the nightlife nearby, we didn’t sleep much! 🙂 Thanks Dave!

Victor

Victor

David and Victor are great hosts. They were very responsive, answering any questions we had, and flexible to our needs. The 3rd floor was a bit cramped for our group of 9 – may be more appropriate for 6 or 7 – but also made for a cozy atmosphere. It also seemed like the neighborhood could use some community development. As for convenience to the city center, finding a taxi back from Old City proved a very difficult feat. Would certainly rent again from David and Victor – perhaps not this unit though.

The location was great with a wonderful view. The space had clean sheets, towels, dishes, and bathroom, but I had to wipe considerable dust off the bedside table and dresser. If that was all I had to worry about, I would still have been very satisfied and recommended it to others. However, there was no internet in the apartment, contrary to the listing. I had to go down to the common area to use the wi-fi there, and it didn’t work all the time. So much for getting my work done in the comfort/ease of the apartment and my pajamas at late/early hours. This dramatically decreased my satisfaction with my experience there; I wouldn’t have booked it had I know this would be the case. Dave did his best as a broker for the owner to make it right, but at the end of the day, the listing said there would be internet in the apartment, there wasn’t, and that’s a deal breaker for me.

I stayed at Dave’s place for the Made in America Fest 2013. Not only was Dave a flawless host but the location is great! Everything is in walking distance. Dave hand delivered an air mattress for me the day of my arrival. I absolutely plan on going back to Philly in the future and I will be sure to look into going through Dave again!

David

The apartment is a cosy and comfortable. Furthermore, it’s a very reasonable price taking into account the location and facilities: It has everything which the web page says and the TV has Netflix, which is awesome. It is very well placed, in a very quiet and beautiful neighborhood, both near the city center and the old city. There are several supermarkets, restaurants, and cafe shops around. There are also some parks nearby where you can play basketball, tennis and football. Moreover, the public transportation services in the area are great, especially the buses. You should know that the people who run the apartment is very nice and thoughtful because whenever I had a problem concerning the internet connection or I needed information about how to come back to the airport, they were always willing to help me quickly. Overall, if I ever come back to Philly, I will definitely stay there again.

Dave’s place was absolutely perfect for my family’s stay in Philadelphia. Six people (2 couples and 2 teenagers) slept comfortably. The location is fantastic. It is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of all the major historic Philly attractions. There is a reasonably priced parking garage just around the corner on 11th street as well as a nice convenience store and cafe nearby. I would highly recommend this place!

Working with David was a great experience! He promptly responded to any questions we had. The place was nice and clean and conveniently located next to excellent running trails, restaurants and museums. The place is older but still very enjoyable. He was very flexible with our travel check-in/check out times and made the experience stress free. We definitely recommend this place!

Dave’s place was an amazing gem. Never stayed in a loft style apartment and it was really tastefully setup. So many things to do and it was so close to everything, shopping (great antique shops all over), restaurants and public transportation. Only a few blocks away from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. South St was great too. While the weather was a little bad, we had Netflix to keep us entertained. Would definitely recommend if looking for a place close to the everything Philadelphia.

Really good location, confortable enaugh but the place was a little bit untidy (spear matriss next to the window). Cleaning was good and Dave crear all our doubts at the moment. A bit too expensive for what you get.

The apartment definitely did the trick. It was very spacious for the three of us, had a beautiful TV, and was a nice place to crash.

Jason

Jason

This was my first experience so please use that to “calibrate” my story, as I don’t really know what’s typical. Dave is awesome – very responsive and flexible. He made what could have turned out to be a pretty bad experience into something acceptable. So here’s the short version: there were no keys waiting for me when I arrived. I don’t know what the full story was behind this, as Dave seemed quite sincere while fixing the mix-up, but at the end of the day I didn’t have any keys for several hours. I can’t imagine this is a common occurrence, or there would be negative feedback all over the place. So I’ve chosen to believe this was human error. The apartment itself is very nice, exactly what it’s described as. Zero complaints, except for one thing: lying to the front desk to get access to the building. Seems that the management would severely disapprove of this sort of thing if they knew it was going on, and that just makes everything too complicated for me. Should I be looking for space in Philly in the future, I’d definitely check Dave’s listings. I just wouldn’t go back to this building.

Dave’s place was great – close to 30th street station where we arrived and left. It is an old place, but they have done all they can to make it a great place. Wifi was great and they even had netflix available for a relaxing night after seeing the city. Would definitely stay there again.

Christie

The location of this apartment can’t be beat. It’s walking distance to nearly everything we did in the city. Fantastic restaurants and bars are just blocks from the front door. The apartment itself isn’t full of frills or luxury but it was clean and absolutely perfect for what our group needed. It’s tough to find good spots for a group of 5, and this one was great. Dave is a FANTASTIC host, allowing us to book only 1 day in advance and responded within hours for every e-mail I sent. They left us metro info, bus info, and other city attraction info at the apartment, which was super helpful. I would highly recommend Dave and this apartment for a bigger group that wants to be in the heart of the city.

Katie

The Rittenhouse Square apartment was a fantastic fit for my group’s needs. We were a group of 7 friends and we have plenty of room in this large studio apartment. I will say that it is not a 5 star hotel, so if that is what you’re looking for, go elsewhere. If you’re looking for a large, affordable space in a great location to crash at night – this is an absolutely fantastic deal. The landlords were extremely helpful and accomodating, and once I booked the apartment we were in frequent contact. If I am back in Philly in the future, I will absolutely stay here again.

My husband and I visited Philadelphia for a conference and had a bad experience with a different apartment. Since the prior apartment was uninhabitable, we were looking to move to another listed property. Not only did Dave get in touch with us within 30min, he was a great host and the apartment was everything we needed–close to everywhere we wanted/needed to be, clean, and comfortable. I will be contacting Dave in the future when I visit Philadelphia again.

I had great time at David’s place. The people in the neighborhood were really friendly. Victor his friend was helpful. There was a problem with the toilet, he came the next day to fix it. Also, he gave me directions to the rocky statue. Since I had no phone connection, he called a taxi for me on the day I left. Thanks for everything Carlo

Great stay in a place! David was a great host, very accommodating and easy to communicate with. The apartment is wonderfully located near Rittenhouse Sq and a close walk to 30th street station. House is spacious and nicely set up for a short or longer stay. Would definitely stay here again.

David was very communicative and helpful and the building is in a good location. It’s on the ground floor, which makes it easy for heavy baggage. It was quiet, very spacious and fine for a stay, though the building is pretty old so some of the fixtures have slight issues and there is a damp, musty smell in the outside hallways. Inside the apartment it doesn’t smell, though, and it has all the furniture and appliances needed. Overall the stay was fine for my parents and we appreciated David’s quick responses.

We had an amazing stay at Davids place!! Very close to Center City and very delicious restaurants. It was a huge studio that fit all of us comfortably. David was very attentive and gave us great suggestions. It was great having the Rite aid so close to the apartment too. The walking trail he suggested a block from the apartment was amazing. Took us right to the art museum!! Definitely a gem in the area. Would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here on my future visits!!

The apartment was in a great location. Everything is within walking distance. I was by myself so the apartment was little bigger than what I needed. It’s very spacious. David was not around but his friend Victor was very helpful.

David’s place is a nice and well furnished apartment in an old building. It is really well located near the Center City Philadelphia, just 15 minutes walking from megabus&train station. We didn’t meet David because he was traveling but we were in touch with a friend of him all the time. He was very helpful and attentive. Moreover, we found an awesome Italian restaurant named Sotto in the same block, a really good place too! 🙂

David was a good host overall. His place was well kept and he had taken care to arrange everything before our stay. The location is great, right next to a Rite Aid which is convenient if you need last minute stuff. Like others have said, the building is quite old but that’s not really a problem once you are in the apartment. One problem we had is that the shower was super low pressure which made it difficult to shower properly. This was annoying. We were there two nights and the shower was just as bad both days. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay!

Great location. Old apartment but confortable. Furthermore, Dave makes it very easy.

David’s place is conveniently located near the Center City Philadelphia. David is a very nice guy.His apartment is in an old building but beside that we had a good stay. Easy to get a bus there to city center and there’s a 24hr store right around the corner. The stay went well except when glass table that suddenly explode into pieces (I’m not sure why). David left a list of instructions in the apartment which is good. There are new washing machine and dryer at the basement (a bit spooky to go down there)

The place is a neat and nice apartment that I find very comfortable living in. Importantly, it is in a “good neighborhood” which is very important in Philly. David is a cool host. He prepared everything in advance. He even prepared chopsticks for Asian people (like me). Overall, it was nice.

This was a great apartment with all the basics provided. The location was amazing and David was more than helpful regarding all of our needs. I highly recomend this apartment to anyone who is keen for a unique expirience in a a wonderful city.

David’s place is conveniently located for the Rittenhouse Square area of Center City Philadelphia. It’s an older building, so there was a bit of a musty smell and some of the apartment’s hardware was rattly / finicky. David left a highly detailed list of things to watch out for, however, and everything went fine! It would be difficult to house a group that need much privacy, as the futon is located in a tight hallway-like room, not quite a second bedroom, and the living room is wide open with two beds. Works well for family though! Best of all, the place is less than a block from my apartment, so housing my family for a visit (I live in a tiny studio) went really well.

The apartment is spacious and its location is great, truly walking distance from the train station and easy walking to UPenn and to the city center. Interaction with David was great, and being able to check-in and check-out by myself made it a truly hassle free experience. The only thing one needs to mind is that the building is old and musty, so while the apartment itself was clean, there is still an odor to the place. There are also some quirks in the apartment that David points out in the welcome guide he prepares.

This apartment was exactly what I needed on my stay in Philadelphia: The location couldn’t have been more convenient, and the the apartment was clean, comfortable, and had an incredible view. (The decor is a bit spare, which wasn’t in the least bit a deterrent for me: All I really needed was someplace to sleep and eat breakfast, basically, and this was perfect.) David was a friendly, helpful, and accommodating host, and I felt very safe with the front-desk attendants downstairs, too. I can’t recommend this spot highly enough!

David was very organized and helpful both before and during our stay. I had a lot of questions before our trip, and David was attentive to all of them. As for the apartment, the pictures and description don’t do it justice. It’s much, much bigger than you’d think and has a great layout. All in all a great experience.

David was terrific — very quick about getting back to me, and concerned when I mentioned minor issues. This was my 1st stay and was very positive. Would work with David again any time.

David is a great host – very easy to communicate with and extremely helpful. The best part about the space is convenience. It is only blocks away from Rittenhouse Square and all of its wonderful restaurants. There’s a 24-hr parking lot right behind the place. A 24-hr Rite Aid is directly next door. Trader Joe’s is within easy walking distance as are the beer and wine store (an important thing to have nearby due to Philadelphia’s issues with alcohol). A path that follows the Schuylkill River towards the Philadelphia Museum of Art & Fairmont Park area is located blocks away – you can walk it or get a bike to ride it. The studio has everything you need – a simple setting in a quiet space. Don’t know about public transportation because we walked everywhere.

Living in David’s apartment was a great experience for my girlfriend and me. We lived in Center City Philadelphia, only a few blocks from Rittenhouse Square and all the boutiques and restaurants. We could easily walk to places of interest (sights) that we wanted to visit. David’s apartment is a great place to rest and work. He has all the necessary appliences and electronics. It’s very cozy and pleasant to stay in. We’re very grateful to David for making our trip unforgettable.

David’s apartment was just as it was pictured, clean and spacious! The apartment is a short walk to the convention center, and that was what made our stay more enjoyable as we get to stop by the many boutiques and sightsee Philly’s lovely architectures! David was an awesome host too. He even prepared an extra bed to accommodate the 4 of us!… My family and I definitely had a wonderful stay!

I visited the apt. on Thursday evening and was delighted to see that the pictures did no justice! The apt. was spacious, clean and warm. David was an awesome host, very accommodating and kind. The location is right next to a neighborhood Rite-Aid and a stroll from center city. The surrounding area provided good parking at reasonable rates. The time spent proved to be successful and pleasing. I would most definitely stay there again!!!
