About Kristy Benson

We are Paul & Kristy and we love to travel. We also love fashion, architecture, interior design, eating clean and organic, anything HGTV, and hanging out with our son and daughter.

Why Kristy Benson chose E.M. Stanton Catchment

You will be surprised when you walk into this property because the high ceilings and clean lines are beautiful. The pictures don't convey how open, airy, and beautiful this space really is. I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised.

What makes this apartment unique

The open concept wet shower. No boarders, just splash around. The attention to detail in every aspect. You will see only high end finishes here. There is nothing builder grade about the finishes on this house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kristy and Paul were highly responsive and incredibly warm, polite and welcoming. They're place is an amazing example of style, elegance, and efficiency. I still can't get over how well they married the raw elements of the structure of this house with modern technology and luxury. I had my wife, and two kids with me (1 and 3 years old), and our hosts were exceptionally accommodating. My family is incredibly grateful for a truly marvelous experience.

Home feeling in Historic Philadelphia

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed 4 days, June 24 to 28th in this historic yet modern apartment in a row house. It is chic and comfy, very pleasant, and had everything we needed after long walks in Philadelphia. It is very private; we did not hear any neighbors or the cars outside. Owners, Kristy and Paul, were a phone call away ready to assist.

We had wonderful weather, in the 70's and parking our car was not a problem, as we found a space by 12 and 13 streets each day. We love the neighborhood, and will be staying there on our next trip!

a nice Homey place to stay

  • 5 of 5

my daughter and myself stayed for 4 days in this Beautiful Homey apartment, it had everything that you would need as if it as your own home.. Beautifully decorated yet very could walk out the door and find everything you needed in walking distance, which was a plus..even in January with a nip in the air and a few snow flurrys,will definitely come back...

Such an amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this lovely apartment for 4 days and had such a great time! The apartment itself is very well done and leaves little to be needed. All of the amentities are high end and the bed is probably the most comfortable I've ever slept on aside from my own. The location is close by everywhere you need to go, within miles of downtown. As others have mentioned, the city is not conducive to driving due to traffic and the complicated parking situation but public transportation is minutes away or you can uber, which is personally how we got around. It was our first trip to Philly and we loved it! I highly recommend this apartment!!

A simple, stylish and comfortable location with easy access and a great experience

  • 5 of 5

We came back home to Philly for the NFL Draft and got to stay in this very comfortable apartment over an extended weekend. Easy to get to and meeting all our needs it was a great experience.

It has an interesting shower arrangement that I'd not seen before but I loved it.

Only issue is that of parking, once you get a parking spot you are set and can use Uber/Subway (SEPTA on Broad Street is half a block away) but you have to find that first so if you drive be aware.

But a great location and I'd stay there again in a second!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved how clean and warm the place was. We came here and needed a place to do work but still be able to get around the city. Great place that was in the middle of the city but still very quiet.

Eclectic & Crafty Apartment

  • 3 of 5

We are a large family with younger children who travel from downtown Chicago. We use VRBO often when we travel for extra space, a kitchen to make meals & use of washer/dryer...

This apartment is in a great location. Though public transportation is a block away, we enjoyed walking to everything. The interactions we had with Kristy, the owner, were pleasant; we had an issue with VRBO after our stay & she was prompt & attentive to the issue.

For the future renter, we will be honest on a few issues since we appreciate honest reviews when we are searching for locations...

•We would replace the word "Luxury" used often in the apartment description to "eclectic" & "artsy". The "European" shower was intimidating to our younger children & there is no tub. Not ideal for a younger child, toddler or baby.

•This rental shows a lot wear from rentals past. The apartment needs an overall paint job, the couch is soiled, new linens & towels are needed as well as new dishes-many coffee mugs are cracked or almost loosing handles.

•We arrived after 10pm on a Saturday night & parking was difficult.

If you are a renter of two couples or a family with two teenage children, this is a good rental option for you. Philadelphia is a wonderful city to visit & the location of this apartment makes for great adventure! Thanks for sharing your unique home with us, Kristy!
