Really livable

  • 5 of 5

The Little Rowhouse worked perfectly for us. I was especially impressed that it was impeccably clean and very well lighted, thanks to track lighting almost everywhere. My son, daughter-in-law and I were in town for a wedding, and other relatives were staying in other VRBOs in Lawrenceville. Unlike some of them, we had a dishwasher, automatic icemaker and a dining room. We were able to host some of them for dinner one night, and there was plenty of room. We ordered takeout, but the large kitchen was functional enough that we could have cooked if we wanted to.

The unit is within walking distance of both Butler and Penn, the two main streets in the neighborhood, so, lots of nearby eateries. I had no trouble finding street parking, thanks to the parking permit Brent and Kim provided, although this suburban girl found it a little scary parallel parking on the [typical of Lawrenceville] narrow street.

It was a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a really great time staying in this home while on our vacation in Pittsburgh. It was clean, in a great location, and made us feel like we were home. The owners were communicative and helped us with anything we wondered about. Highly recommend!

Very good basic lodging in Lawrenceville

  • 4 of 5

Worked very well for us, entire house was very clean and fully equipped kitchen. Large shower and jacuzzi tub is a nice bonus. Window air conditioners in living room and in each bedroom work fine to keep the rooms cool. Beds are comfortable and adequate storage in bedrooms. Only 4 stars because the is only one small table in the living room to put things on. Would definitely stay again when in Pittsburgh.

Nice host, average place.

  • 3 of 5

Brent was very helpful, friendly, and available to answer any questions. I only gave 3 stars because the carpet was not as clean, or maybe as new, as I like carpet to be, and if replaced, plus clean soft blankets, sheets and pillows in case they are needed (I needed more pillows and a nicer blanket), and perhaps a way to open bedroom windows for fresh air, I'd have given it 4 stars, maybe 5. Bathroom was great. Big shower, jacuzzi tub, clean and bright. Parking could be tricky, but it worked out. Google things to see in Pittsburgh and try not to miss too many of them. We left before our last night because we had had trouble sleeping, so we didn't get to do everything we wanted, but still had an awesome time!

Owner's Response: Barb - thanks for the feedback. For other guests that may be reading this, I want to let everyone know that we always have clean linens for each stay. There are also extra pillows and blankets in the hall closet. The windows are all new and can be opened. We do have window air conditioners in a couple of windows, but even those windows could be opened from the top. The carpet is not new, but is always vacuumed between guests. The house is in a great area and we offer it at a very reasonable price in comparison to other listings.

The house is located in Lawrenceville within the city of Pittsburgh. The house is next door to Children's Hospital on the bus line with easy access to Downtown, Oakland, and Shadyside. The house is ideal for visiting trendy shops and restaurants in Lawrenceville and the Strip District (market area).
