Enjoy a taste of neighborhood family life in West Philadelphia. Our lovingly restored Victorian townhouse has wood floors, large windows, and a great kitchen, on a quiet block.
Guests who will be here while we are home must be able to be respectful of children, and very quiet when coming in after 10 pm.
No pets. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.
I am a visual artist, art activist and educator, and mother. As a guest I am impeccably considerate and clean, and appreciate well-designed spaces. I mainly travel with my family - my husband and our two young children. We like to be in interesting places with outdoor access and with space for our kids to play.
As a host I am warm, friendly, and considerate. I like getting to know new people, and I'm also happy to give guests their privacy. I love being helpful and offering advice about our neighborhood and Philadelphia.
I've been traveling since I was a child. I've been to Canada, France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, the UK, Germany, and Russia. I speak a bit of French and Italian. My husband Ken is conversant in Mandarin. We like to garden and eat local foods, and keep our "footprint" small. We bicycle around town, and have solar panels on our roof!
