About Michele Margittai
I live with my husband, Peter, and our two children in Pittsburgh, PA - one of the greatest places in the United States! We love living in the heart of the city where we can walk to restaurants, stores, and entertainment destinations - AND where we know our neighbors and local shopkeepers. We are excited to share our love of this city with those who stay as our guests. Since we travel - some of our favorite destinations include Budapest, Rome, Costa Rica, and New Orleans - we have learned what is needed to create a comfortable and relaxing place to rest while taking a break from touring. Our rental location was actually designed by my husband, who is an architect. He enjoys reimagining spaces and adapting them to new uses. When we first walked into the space, it was an empty, rundown garage where pigeons lived. Today, it is beautifully renovated into a quiet, welcoming retreat. My personal and professional mission is to help others achieve their goals by connecting them to potential resources. I'm lucky to be able to achieve this mission by working part-time serving military veterans who seek employment in the Pittsburgh region. I am also excited to help our guests connect to area favorites that will make their trip to Pittsburgh a great one!

mid week mini vacation in October
We had a wonderful experience at the Cozy retreat! The place was just as advertised; cozy and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The garage was small, and the street a bit narrow but our Honda civic fit just fine and it was a huge plus for the area where parking was a challenge. Michele was a wonderful host, very promptly responding to any e-mail or text I sent to her. She provided a binder with a huge wealth of information on entertainment and places to eat which we found very helpful. The location of the Loft was great; we were about at most a 20 minute drive from everywhere in Pittsburgh that we had planned to visit. We will definitely stay at the Loft again if we ever revisit Pittsburgh.
Perfect spot, clean, professional, friendly
We stay here every time we are in Pitt
Great Place to stay for a weekend in Pittsburgh
This loft was super cute, clean and Michele was so nice and easy to communicate with! Would easily recommend and will definitely try to book again when we come to the city. Loft is in walking distance of lots of restaurants and bars on the South Side. Any easy 10-15 min drive to anywhere in the city you are trying to go. Supplied towels, sheets and even breakfast items! Also loved that Michelle and her family put together an entire binder of their suggestions of things to do in the city, from restaurants to entertainment! Michelle also checked in with us via text half way through our stay to make sure everything was good. Could sleep 4 comfortably with the pullout sofa. Nice to have a huge back patio with a nice view of the South Side clock. Loved this rental!!!!
Perfect little loft in the city
We loved staying here while in Pittsburgh. The historic neighborhood had great restaurants within walking distance and all the museums, etc were easy to get to by car. The washer and dryer as well as garage were added bonuses for sure. Our host checked in a couple of times to make sure we had everything we needed. We were also provided with a binder filled with ideas for things to do around the city. This is a great place to stay in Pittsburgh!
Great hosts and location
Plenty of places to go within walking distance. Felt very safe. Loft had plenty amenities, also quiet, clean. Great outside rooftop sitting area!
Thanks, Kathleen! We are so glad that you had a good stay. Hope you return to visit us again! Michele
The patio and the place itself are lovely. The garage was wonderful, we drove a rav-4 and had plenty of room. It was raining when we left so being able to pack up in the garage was nice. Quiet area but walking distance to the busy Carson St. strip. They left many brochures and suggestions. We were very happy.
Angela, thank you! So glad that you liked the loft and were happy with your stay! We hope that you can return to visit us again sometime! Michele
