Barb and Mike were amazing hosts. Their place was clean and was the the perfect spot for a quick getaway to watch the Steelers game. The additional snacks and beverages were very thoughtful and added to the cozy feel of the home. Thank you so much for hosting us :)

If you and some friends are coming for out of town for a show at Mr Smalls Theater, this is the place to stay. 10 minute walk to the venue and to Pam's Diner the next morning for breakfast. Kitchen was stocked with snacks, water, and K-cups. Beds were comfortable. Place was clean. We'd stay again.

Response from Barb & Mike:
The reason we ask that you take the trash out is because sometimes we do not get to the unit right away to clean and we don't want the trash and recycles to attract bugs. We work full time and don't always have the opportunity to clean the unit right away and most of our guests are weekend guests so we typically clean right before they arrive so everything is fresh. The cleaning fee applies to changing all the linens, washing the towels, disinfecting the kitchen and bath, restocking all the freebies we give you in the kitchen (you would pay a lot for those at a hotel), restocking shampoo, toothpaste , toilet paper and all other amenities in the bathroom. Hope this helps you see the reasoning from the host perspective.

The couple is pretty kind to accommodate us and the house is clean and cozy! There are snacks, coffee and travel guides.

Barb and Mike's place is fantastic, cozy, and comfortable. Their pre-stay communication was comprehensive and enabled three tired travellers to park, find their beds, and sleep without the slightest complication. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

This was a really comfortable clean and guest-friendly place in unique Pittsburgh neighbourhood. The hosts provided a lot of extra amenities that made it it more of a home than a rental.

Our experience was great. Barb and Mike were wonderful hosts. From driving us to the game to the snacks they provided, they really ensured we had everything we needed...and that even included having tea bags for us Canadians :) Their home is lovely and the neighbourhood is charming. Their binder of useful neighbourhood information even helped us find a great brewery nearby that all the locals said was a hidden gem. We're thankful for the experience and for Barb and Mike's hospitality and we would recommend a stay here to anyone travelling in the area. Thanks again Barb and Mike!!

We enjoyed our stay at Barb and Mike's place. The kitchen has absolutely everything you need, the bed (queen) was comfortable, and the place is in a residential, quiet location. We had a car, so things were super convenient (ten minute drive pretty much anywhere) and there was ample parking. We would stay here again.
