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.
Vanessa and her family's house was just perfect for us. The location was great, the apartment was incredibly clean and comfortable, and we had everything we needed including shampoo and soap. They are lovely folks, and we would definitely recommend staying here. We hope to stay with them again in the future!
We stop for one night in Pittsburgh after a long road trip. We had also had some time to go around the city and explore. Vanessa's place was perfect for a short rest and its location was close to interesting places.
Vanessa's place is very comfortable, and private. We had everything we needed. We definetly recommend!
Vanessa's apartment was even more gorgeous than the pictures make it seem. It was super super clean and we had all of the essentials for our stay. The location was perfect for anyone who wants to explore downtown or the city's colleges. Vanessa was super nice and helpful, she put together a fantastic binder including bus routes, places to walk to eat and drink and other very useful information. I would definitely recommend staying at her apartment! Thanks for everything Vanessa !
Vanessa is my sister-in-law and she and her husband are great, fun-loving, active, interesting people. They LOVE Pittsburg and can give you all kinds of tips on cool places to see, hikes to do, and delicious restaurants to try. The new garden apartment is spacious and comfortable. You have your own entrance, new furniture and appliances, and lots of privacy. The neighborhood is an interesting mix of up and coming and old-school Pittsburg. There are parks and good spots to eat within walking distance. As an Airbnb host, I totally appreciate staying in homes instead of hotels. At Vanessa's place in Pittsburg, I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay too.
As Vanessa's former roommate I don't doubt that she'll be a conscientious, responsible and welcoming host. I can't wait to stay in their newly renovated Pittsburgh space!
Vanessa and her husband, Kevin, stayed at our house for a few weeks before moving into their new home in 2011. They are wonderful friends and wonderful hosts as well. Vanessa's house in Pittsburgh is wonderful and would make a perfect home base for anyone visiting the city.
Vanessa was a former roommate of mine. She is one of the nicest, most considerate people you will ever meet. This made her a wonderful housemate while we were living together because everyone else in the house (myself included) suffered from some degree of insanity. How Vanessa ever put up with us is a testament to her patience and understanding as a person. That she is one of my most dependable, fun, and outgoing friends is a testament to Vanessa's overall character. It would be a privilege to let Vanessa be your house guest or host.
