Otros aspectos destacables
It is a quiet space with a good distance from any neighbors, but please note that we are about one long block away from the train, which is not loud or frequent, and we have not had any complaints from guests. We do provide a high quality sound machine in both rooms in case you are a light sleeper. During the daytime only in summer months, you can hear the pleasant sound of children playing at the nearby Swim Club (but trees provide complete visual privacy). Also note that entry to the apartment is through an outdoor staircase to the deck (not steep or narrow, but uncovered). The one full bathroom with tub and shower is accessed through the master bedroom, so please keep that in mind when sharing the space with a friend. Parking is in the driveway and I request that you use only the driveway to avoid taking any street parking away from neighbors.
Please do not park in front of any of my neighbors houses. Please be sure that you park in the driveway when you stay with us. Also, this is a quiet, residential neighborhood, so please be respectful and quiet when coming and going. The home is not suitable for parties.
I work at Swarthmore College and love that I walk to work! I enjoy traveling, learning about different places and cultures, and eating home cooked healthy food with friends.
