The Perfect Airbnb in Philly!

The Perfect Airbnb in Philly!

Visiting Philly soon and in search of the perfect place to stay? We’ve got you covered!

We recently started utilizing an alternative lodging service when we travel to a new city – AirBNB! It’s the perfect platform for travelers to use when jetting on a budget. Not only is Airbnb easy on the wallet, but travelers get to experience the cities they visit just like the locals that inhabit them. Plus, hosts can sometimes step in as personal tour guides (if they choose).

We experienced our first AirBNB stay in Philadelphia where we traveled for a quick girl’s weekend getaway – it was absolutely perfect! Our Airbnb was located in South Philly – an area that offers a number of hip restaurants and lively nightlife spots right down the street (literally a six minute walk). The location of the town home was also a short Uber ride from the center of Philly and all the main tourist attractions.

Our Airbnb host, Veronica, was extremely helpful, and left us a hand-written guide to all the best restaurants and fun activities in the area. It’s also worth mentioning that she put two glasses of chilled champagne on the counter that were waiting to be popped when we arrived – the perfect welcoming gift!

This particular Airbnb also included free WiFi and all your favorite streaming apps like Netflix, HBO and Hulu!

Now, let us tell you our favorite part about our Airbnb experience. The house was stunningly beautiful, very clean, and spacious.

Veronica and her husband had recently gutted and renovated the entire house to what is it is today. The house has two floors, which include two bedrooms, two full baths, an open concept living area, a chefs kitchen, a reading/bonus room, and a quaint but spacious backyard adorned with  strings of patio lights, adorondack-like wooden chairs, and a grill (perfect for that summer BBQ). It felt like we were staying in house straight out of a Better Homes & Gardens Magazine!

We can’t forget about the fully stocked mini fridge that included different types of beer, wine, champagne and soda (which we took full advantage of).

For all of you coffee lovers, the kitchen also included a fully-stocked Keurig machine with assorted flavored coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. We felt at home as we sipped on our cup of Joe (spiked with a little bit of Kahlua!) in the morning while lounging in the plush robes that Veronica also graciously provided for us during our stay.

For our followers interested in staying at this luxurious Airbnb for your upcoming Philly adventure, here’s the link to book it. Our followers can also click here to enjoy $40 off their first Airbnb booking! It’s a no-brainer, right?

For those who take advantage of the offer to book this Philly gem, let us know about your experience, and don’t forget to tell Veronica the East Coast Contessas sent you.

As always, remember to “Eat Well and Travel Often.”

    Lovely place. AirBnb sounds like a great alternative to hotel booking. I will certainly check it out.
