About Michael Price

I'm Mike. I'm a blueberry farmer. I'm a big fan of traveling to the southwest United States. I enjoy hiking the Grand Canyon and the various other canyons of Utah and Arizona. I worked for the forest service there for a few years, studying hawks on the rim of the Grand Canyon.

I'm an easy and thorough host.

We loved the location,&floor plan &amenities.Bed too firm 4me.owner wants a5*rating, but hard2reach.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful apt,as pictured; dishwasher AND washer/dryerCombo IN apt. Wood floors.

It would help if the living room had PRIVACY Curtains, with an easy to operate pull rod/wand &/or blinds. The wood at the high windows is beautiful, along with very tall ceilings. Not possible for a person who's 5'4" height to reach the existing tiny curtain rod from the floor when standing on floor. The The highest windows in the apt have NO CURTAINS at them, so street lights & lights from other buildings shine in the apt living room and bedroom at night. The sidewalk outdoors is immediately adjacent to the apartment, so people walking out there can look in the Apt windows at the living room. Nice room darkening drapes in place at primary windows of bedroom. Only one nightstand at bed. A twin to the great little wooden stand in bathroom would be good at the bedside, so both people have a place for glasses & cell phone.

Nice sheets & plenty of blankets. The bathroom could use another towel hook or rod. Towel quality & thickness get B+.

Neighbor directly overhead on 2nd floor was noisy after 10pm.

Owner Mike Price wants 5-star rating, but not very accessible to me. Only two bowls in kitchen. Cheapo toilet paper, not willing to provide paper towels or napkins. Great system for absentee owner to allow access to renters.

Great property, but lacking in the basics

  • 3 of 5

The property is in a GREAT location, spacious and well appointed, with lovely architectural details. All the items listed in the description were included: one bath towel per person, shampoo and conditioner (albeit leftover from previous guests), however there were no hand towels, dish towels, or soap of any kind (only a scant amount of dish liquid that had been watered down), and only one partial roll of toilet paper. To be fair, I did not contact the owner about these items as they weren't included in the description and given the short duration of our stay it was easier to simply pick up some soap, toilet paper and paper towels while we were out. The property appeared clean upon arrival, however the next morning we discovered a used coffee cup in the cupboard, several plates with food matter on them, and utensils in the drawer that appeared to have been used and put back with no attempt to clean them. The coffee maker was evidently for one cup at a time (there was no carafe), pots all had burnt residue, and the electric kettle had significant lime buildup and an exposed element on the inside. I ended up boiling water in the microwave and ran all the dishes though the dishwasher before we used them. I recognize that the owner was not given the opportunity to make things right, however the essential nature of the items that were either missing or in poor condition suggests an overall lack of attentiveness in maintaining what has the potential to be a fabulous property.

perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Spent the month of June in the apartment and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is perfect, two blocks to the park and a block to Metropolitan Bakery, a cleaner . Rosenbach museum and a food market. Its in a historical building, formally General Meade's home. Michael was super responsive, we had some lights out and he had them immediately replaced. The furniture has seen its day and there are a few items missing from the kitchen( soup bowls and wine glasses which we added ), dish towls and a coffee pot( there is a single cup pot). . The apt is on the first floor but the windows are above the street allowing privacy.

Property is fine as soon as we got settled.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at this location. Had trouble opening the door even though directions were sent to us, but finally figured it out. Couldn't get TV to work, but after much trying and getting someone else to help me, it did work Bedroom was fine.

nice, quiet and clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

Good situation closed to many restaurants, shopping areas and nicely walkable straight to Center City. Maybe a little inconvenient with no (true) bed for a 3rd last minute guest. But nothing so bad for a good address we fully recommend for a short stay in Philly.
