“My stay at Lola’s and Taiye’s was really great! Lola and her sister are really open and friendly. They care about their guest’s well-being at all times. It was actually my best Airbnb experience I have ever had and would definitely recommend staying here.” September 2019.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Words cannot express what an amazing experience I had in living in this home. I had the opportunity of doing a clinical rotation for 3 months in Philadelphia and this home and family provided me with great memories I will always cherish. From the first day I moved in Lola and Taiye greeted me with true love and kindness.

Lola and her twin are THE sweetest people I have met in a long time. They invited me to several activities within and outside of the city and helped me feel like I was apart of their family while I was far from home

[Taiye & Lola] are very accommodating and helpful and the rooms are special and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

I came to Philadelphia from Canada and stayed a whole three months with Taiye and Lola. It was a really great experience. Taiye and Lola’s place was really comfortable, clean and they were both caring and kind hosts. I highly, highly recommend [their home] for any one coming to philly….I would definitely come back again.

Lola’s and Taiye home became a home for me as I had recently moved to philly for school and needed temporary housing until I could find my own place. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. It only took 10-15 mins to get the train station and buddy the c is such a hoot! I would highly recommend this location.
