Bad place to rent fire trap
No TV No Microwave only one way out No front door. Would not stay here. No stars
Great Haunted Style experience with an odd setup
The apartment is absolutely gorgeous. The only tv is in the smaller bedroom which is odd. On top of that the tub can be a little diffixult to navigate. That being said it was an utterly wonderful experience and was a fantastic stay!
weekend in Pittsburgh
Great location, great communication and sweet apartment
One week in house.
The house is mainly nice, but things such as one towel per person for a week and the front door lock not being terribly secure, (no deadbolt) were things that made my review less then a five. The TV is in one of the bedrooms, as the living area is taken up by a large dinning table. The owners were very responsive when there was a leak in the roof from very heavy rains and they came quickly to fix it . The neighborhood has a mixed feel to it, some homes are beautiful, others needing much repair. The front of house is somewhat deceiving, it looks as though the home needs some care, but from the back side it improves and has a cared for appearance. It is over all a nice house, but the set up is odd and there are things that could be benefit from more care and thought.
This was a strange rental because driving up to the house it looks haunted with unkempt landscaping and neglected house repair. The entrance is in the back from an alley where you find a beautiful garden leading to the entrance into the kitchen. The kitchen is sparse in functioning appliances. No toaster! Silverware for 4 people! The bedrooms were adequate and the teepee in the second bedroom was a nice touch. The bathroom toilet got plugged up after two days of use by 3 adults and 1 child. The neighborhood is primarily segregated but it seems safe for walking in daylight. The neighborhoods around the house were amazing with historic charm. I don't think I would stay here again but would look for another home near by.
Great house, great location, great owner
First the house: the big rooms (main bedroom enormous), high plastered ceilings, and gorgeous furniture makes you feel like you are in Europe. The kitchen is well appointed, with surprisingly high quality dishes and glassware...not what one usually encounters in a rental. The complimentary tea, coffee, and cookies were much appreciated. Board games and toys galore (although we were four adults we did set up a pretty wicked Thomas the Train layout!)
Location: a quiet, friendly residential area. Close by is a great restaurant strip where we enjoyed breakfasts at Lila's and an exceptional Thai meal. 10 minutes away is a subway stop which will take you FOR FREE(!) across the river to the downtown area. We also had a wonderful urban walk one day across one bridge, up the famous funicular, and back across another bridge to the downtown area.
The owner Elena: she answered my initial email immediately, and continued to be extremely helpful throughout our trip. Elena provided a binder with a map and all the menus of the local restaurants, so you can have a clear idea about where you might want to eat. She was also available by text the whole time we were there. Although we never met in person, we all felt like we knew her by the end of our stay. A really top-notch experience for us all.
I am happy you had a good time. Thank you for feeding the squirrels!
