Check in is flexible, but I need to mention that we both work till 5pm during the week, so I am asking for you to be flexible as well with checking is. Checking out is not the issue, you can stay longer if needed in the case we don't have anyone checking in the same day or day after. We can also mail you the key to your address and you can check in whenever you get there in the case we are not able to meet you on desired time.

Check In
  • I made the right choice booking with Kat and Marko.

    To ensure I was able to get into the apartment when I needed to, Marko agreed to meet me the day before I checked in to give me the keys. I ended up crashing out at a friends house in Bloomfield after my 8 hour bus ride into town, and slept through my alarm for when I was supposed to meet Marko. Two hours later, I frantically texted him and he assured me it wasn't a problem and to head over when I could. His laid back attitude was very much appreciated after a long, hectic Megabus trip!

    The apartment was lovely and roomy for a solo traveler. Someone mentioned in a previous review that the bed wasn't very comfortable. That was definitely corrected, because I slept like a baby! The A/C kept me nice and cool in the hot June weather. The building was very quiet and I never ran into any other tenants despite the fact I was running in and out all day. The location of the apartment was perfect for a pedestrian and bus hopper such as myself. Only a minute away from food, coffee, and upscale shopping on Walnut. Very close to the university area which was necessary for my trip, but far away enough that I wasn't surrounded by rowdy Pitt students. (I dealt with loud, obnoxious students when I lived in Oakland back in the day. Never again!)

    I highly recommend Kat and Marko if you appreciate friendly, flexible hosts with a hands off approach. :) I definitely plan on booking with them on my next trip home.

  • Kat and Marko were great hosts! They went above and beyond to make sure my arrival was easy, even while they were away from Pittsburgh. The apartment is exactly as advertised, very clean and everything was in working order, there were no problems at all. It was very handy to have laundry in the building. The apartment is in a fantastic location; Whole Foods and Trader Joes are very close, and several fantastic restaurants are within reasonable walking distance - Casbah, BRGR, Legume...and the meal at Salt of the Earth was as good as any I've had in the past few years! Walnut Street has everything a traveler would need - banks, Rite Aid, coffee shops and several other interesting looking restaurants I didn't get the chance to try. Easy access by car, bus or short walk to Pitt and Carnegie-Mellon if you are there for school related events.

    Thanks Kat and Marko!

  • We went to Pittsburgh to visit some friends over the Memorial Day weekend. Stayed one night on Kat's nad Marko's apartment. It is in a great area, close to restaurants and shops and the apartment is really cute and ver well taken care of. Both Kat and Marko were really nice, very accommodating in the times we were arriving and leaving and very responsive with any question we had. Overall it was a great experience.

  • This place is perfect--clean, cozy, and close to everything. Shops and restaurants are few steps away. Bus lines are a short walk way for trips downtown or to schools.

    Kat's communication is awesome. She was quick to answer my all questions. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Pittsburgh.

  • Place is exactly as described; has everything you need and is clean and comfortable. Nice neighborhood with restaurants and shops nearby, and just a 10 minute walk to CMU. Kat was always available to answer questions and recommend stuff to us. This is pretty much the ideal airbnb model option.

  • We appreciated Kat's excellent communication with us, her dependability in meeting us when she said she would, the cleanliness of the apartment, and her consideration in providing lots and lots of empty shelf and drawer space, which isn't always the case with Airbnb hosts. The Wifi worked perfectly, and she even bought us some special eastern European coffee when she learned about our coffee addiction.
    Everything about the apartment was convenient. We recommend Kat and her apartment to anyone interested in a Pittsburgh visit.

  • I really enjoyed my stay, and I found Marko and Kat to be very considerate and responsive. The apartment is in a great location, and had everything I needed.

  • The apartment was nice and in a GREAT location. It was perfect for my boyfriend and I while I was checking out Carnegie Mellon. We could walk to campus and to a bunch of great restaurants and bars. Kat was super responsive to all my questions, did a great job preparing for two guests, and even sent the keys to me early, so we could check in whenever. Parking was on the street and in an area that said that it requires a permit, but we had no problems with it. I am not sure it is actually enforced. WiFi was quick and easy to connect to.

    There were little normal apartment quirks (and this clearly is just that - someone's apartment), but it was nothing that all of us don't have at home and wasn't enough to warrant anything less than 5 stars, just a sticky door and stubborn faucet. Mostly what struck me was how quiet the neighbors and street were from the bedroom. I had a great night's sleep!

    Thanks, Kat!
