Great place and friendly host!

  • 4 of 5

If you want to be near downtown and what Pitt has to offer, this is a good place! Clean and spacious. I would have given 5 stars but the stairs are a workout. This is not a knock on the house, I realize all the homes in the area have multiple sets of steps. Being from Fla w/ no steps was different.

I seen a review complaining about the area. NOT true! Actually most of the area are employees of the nearby hospital and business commuters to town. The area is all being renovated and quaint.

Comfortable, spacious, charming.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in Pittsburgh, highly recommend staying at this apartment when visiting Pitt. This large, charming 1bedroom is tucked away in a rustic old home in North Side of Pitt. Lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby, some good parks to walk thru, and a nice coffee shop around the corner. The apartment is even nicer than the pictures and description. For our 3 day visit, we really felt at home.

Clean, quiet, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We found our safe little parking space at Elena's Homeaway house in December for our trip to Pittsburgh for a conference downtown. The neighborhood has some houses that look a bit derelict, but overall it is a neighborhood on the rebound. We walked every day to the free T-station to town, or the closer nearby bus stop, even at night and had no problems. Inside the house, the steps are steep, so we were just careful going up and down. (It is not suitable for handicapped walkers.) The main kitchen area/living room level are comfortable and nicely appointed. The kitchen was well stocked. I do a lot of cooking for my husband's allergies. The central stove island was real nice to use. The top floor had the bedroom and the lovely bathroom. I loved the walk-in huge tiled shower! The bathroom was beautiful. We had a lovely time there. Everything was spotlessly clean. The clean hardwood floors were good for my husband's allergies. We went to the Pittsburgh Holiday Pops concert, the Phipps Conservatory, the International Classrooms at the University, and other great museums in town. It's an easy walk to the fantastic National Aviary (try to get to that.) It was delightfully quiet for sleeping at night. Since we live on a farm, going to cities can often be too noisy for us but this property is set on the alley side of the main road, so it was great for sleeping. If we come back to Pittsburgh, we would definitely stay here again.

Lovely and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This has been our third stay at this property and we have difficultly going back to stay anywhere else - Elena and her family are incredibly gracious hosts!

This apartment is spacious, comfortable and beautifully well kept. It offers all the luxuries of home, a full kitchen and a gorgeous bathroom!

The only drawback to sharing our rave reviews is that this secret gem of an apartment won't stay secret for long!

We will definitely be going back!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

It was a great weekend for me and my girlfriend in this apartment. The apartment is very clean and comforting the bathroom is huge and the rainfall shower head is great. We didn't drive at all since Uber is very cheap to use and can get you down to the stadium and surrounding parts in less than ten minutes. If I'm every in Pittsburgh again I will definitely stay here again.

Cute design with questionable cleanliness and safty issues

  • 2 of 5

Derelict pocket area in changing neighborhood. Not as dangerous as seems. Has steep, narrow steps from basement? to main floor and from main floor to bedroom/bathroom. Transition from bedroom to bathroom is a drop to top landing and up again, light not working to illuminate at night. Bathroom lovely. Bed hard and uncomfortable. Bedroom window can't be closed due to air conditioner support. Long bedroom curtains hang over electric heater presenting fire hazard with only one way out through basement. TV doesn't work all of the time and microwave oven only works with door open. cabinets and oven dirty.

No washcloths or dish cloths. Evaluation left for owner. Perhaps problems will be solved

Owner's Response: I think Karen misunderstood the concept of "home away" and she is better off staying at regular hotels where everything is predictable and safe to her mainstream standards. She treated my home as a hotel and thought communication with me was not necessary - otherwise all issues she had while her stay would have been addressed (I could have told her where to find dish cloth in my fully equipped kitchen and how to use microwave properly). Also, she didn't check the listing description carefully (TV was not promised!) and the area where she will be staying - historical inner city is not for everyone - my neighborhood is nice and safe - it is certainly not derelict - most of my neighbors are working very hard to restore and maintain old houses in order to preserve unique Pittsburgh architecture. Steep stairs were mentioned to Karen in our phone conversation prior to booking but again she decided to ignore it. I don't recommend Karen as a guest in a private house/apartment - she doesn't get this idea of traveling. Out of all my dear guests she was my only disappointment.
