My husband and I stayed at Vanessa's place for 3 days and were very happy with our stay. The place is clean and well lit and is exactly the way it looks in the pictures. The room, kitchen and bathroom are all well appointed. Vanessa was wonderful in accommodating the odd times of arrival and departure we had by making arrangements to get the keys. If I have to advise on something, I would say that if you are a light sleeper, the noise of footsteps upstairs (with the dog and a kid) might bother you. Otherwise, Vanessa's is a great place to stay. If we are in Pittsburgh again, we would stay here.
We stayed in Vanessas apartment for four months during our MBA program at Pittsburgh. We loved the apartment, everything was clean and nice. Going to university and the inner city was easy by taking the bus. Several bars and restaurants are around in walking distance. Vanessa and her husband were always very friendly and helpful. Thanks once more for having a great time!!!
Great place and great hosts! They were very helpful with information on local dining scene. Everything you'd want for a weekend stay (and beyond) is included in the apartment. Very clean and quiet too. Would love to return!
Vanessa was an excellent hostess, although we never were able to meet face to face. Vanessa gave us premise instructions to access her private cellar apartment. We were very pleased with the space. The kitchen was a nice bonus. I would be happy to stay again!
Room as described. Good location. Clean. Host was very helpful and polite. Would stay here gain. Thanks.
We had a very comfortable stay in this basement apartment. It is large and felt spacious yet cosy, with enough distinction between the sleeping, living and eating areas. The kitchen was well-appointed, including a kettle and toaster for our British tea and American bagels. The yogurts and granola provided were a nice touch too, saving us from needing to get supplies straight away. We did notice the noise of the cute child and dog upstairs but it didn't interfere during our 4 day trip. We were made to feel very welcome and there were plenty of recommendations for nearby cafés, restaurants, grocery stores and tourist spots and activities. I would happily stay in the apartment again.
Vanessa was good about communicating and made us feel welcome. Everything in the apartment was as pictured/listed and the location was central for driving. I found it to be clean, comfortable and convenient. While not bothersome to us (since we have a toddler) there is a toddler and dog above, which we mostly heard in the morning.
