About Marla Norman

My husband and I own several real estate properties throughout the Pittsburgh area to include long-term residential rentals and commercial properties. This is our second furnished corporate/vacation rental. We chose this cozy first floor unit because it is another great location right in the heart of Pittsburgh's East End. It's great for someone needing a corporate rental for a short term assignment or a college student, or parents visiting a student, attending graduation, or looking for a weekend getaway in one the fastest growing areas in Pittsburgh.

Please visit our other properties located on the North Shore (#618139) that sleep 6 and allows you to walk to the stadiums and casino. We want to assure you that all of our properties are immaculate and provide all of the amenities you are accustomed to while travelling.

Why Marla Norman chose Pittsburgh

Location, location, location! Walk 2 blocks to trendy Bakery Square. Quiet neighborhood and safe on-street parking.

Convenient, clean and pleasant

  • 5 of 5

I'm new to VRBO, so don't have much to compare with. On this trip to PA, we stayed at a Super 8, yikes, and at a beautiful B&B in Addison, PA, that was expensive and luxurious. Our stay in PGH was quite a revelation, as Pittsburgh is a beautiful city, with many interesting cultural amenities. We really wanted a self-contained apartment, and this filled the bill nicely. It's right at a stop light, a minor intersection, but set back far enough from the road that it didn't seem noisy. We're semi-rural folk, and would have noticed. The kitchen is very small, but complete. Using Google Maps, it was entirely painless to hop the bus to downtown and to the main galleries near the university. It always felt great to arrive home, as well, a good sign for our place. We'd cook, sip a libation, then walk to Trader Joe's nearby to stock up a little and find an excuse for a pleasant walk. There was much in the neighbourhood that we didn't get to see, like the Frick. This is not a 'luxury' apartment. It's a very pleasant little pied a terre in a lovely city.

Comfortable, clean, and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment was just right for me and my husband over Labor Day weekend. Very clean and the bed is very comfortable. Tiny bathroom, so it might be tight if you need a lot of space. We didn't use it much, but the kitchen is well-stocked. My only suggestions...some light on the front porch would be helpful at night, and a bar of bath soap would be nice. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Small but all we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights. House was clean and in a good location to easily drive to everything we wanted to see. The snack bowl was perfect for getting in late and being hungry! Thanks Marla! The rental process was easy.

We were in Pittsburgh to visit the Frick, the Carnegie museum, the Tower of Learning, etc. We were within walking distance of the Frick and only about three miles from the center of the cultural attractions, so it was a good choice for us. We had tickets to the Pirates game, but it was too cold to go. Drove instead 60 miles south to Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Waters. I recommend the Thai restaurant in the Bakery District.

Some reviewers have said that the property is tiny; tiny it is, but, given that, it is clean and comfortable. The bed sleeps well. Appliances are up to date. TV and Internet access are very good. Be sure to take a walk across the street to North Linden. The houses on that side of the street are well kept, late 19th and early 20th century homes and provide a pleasant walking venue.
