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.

Small but all we needed

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.

It's a tiny apartment, but worked just fine for the 2 of us.

  • 3 of 5

It was a perfect location for us. You have to park on the street, but there wasn't a problem finding space. Everything we needed was in the apartment. It was clean and could easily reach the owners if we had questions. It wasn't too chaotic driving around when we did our daily adventures.

The apartment is a little on the small side, but it was very clean. Marla even had a bowl of snacks in the table! It had everything we needed. Stocked with plenty of plush towels and the bed linens were extra nice.

Would recommend for sure !
