About Barb & Mike

We have lived in our home for 17years. We have a beautiful 23 year old daughter, 1 dogs and 4 cats and 3 grandchildren. We love our home and our neighborhood and take great pride in our home. We have the best neighbors and enjoy living in Pittsburgh. Both born and raised here. We are family oriented people and enjoy opening our home to visitors and strive to make it an enjoyable stay.

Barb & Mike purchased this house in 2001

Why Barb & Mike chose Pittsburgh

We bought this property so my parents could move in with us and we could take care of them as they aged. My dad passed a year after we moved in and we took care of mom for 10 years until she passed.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful Victorian with stain glass windows original. All original woodwork on the 2nd floor. The home is built sturdy and we love the architecture of it.

Very clean and cozy, felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Barb were very friendly and great hosts, firstly. The property is beautiful and was very clean. I loved the stained glass windows. It was also very cozy and homey feeling. It was nice to have somewhere that felt like home to come back to every night. It's such an awesome place, my family and I enjoyed our stay very much. There were no problems/complaints at all, everything was great. I wasn't totally sure on how to work the washing machine (it's different from what I have) and we called Barb to let her know. She and Mike were super nice and helpful and came over right away to help us. We're hoping to eventually come back to Pittsburgh again at some point in the future and hope to stay here again. It was such a pleasure. Thank you!

Perfect place for a visit to Pittsburgh

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and a dear friend of ours, spent 2 nights at Barb & Mike’s place in Millvale. We have rented many places through HomeAway/VRBO as well as Airbnb, including luxury villas in Hawai’i and Costa Rica, but none of them felt as “homey” as this place.

Barb and Mike went above and beyond the call to provide EVERYTHING we could possibly need or want from snacks, bottled water, coffee (with cream), and all necessary items for cooking AND cleaning up in the kitchen, to abundant supplies of towels, wash cloths, soaps and shampoos in the bathroom. The place was immaculate, the beds were comfortable, the Wi-Fi was excellent, the TV’s in the living and each bedroom were great, the reclining couch and love seat in the living room were just what was needed after a long day in the city.

Everything throughout the house was well labeled with directions and the “Welcome Book” was informative and thorough. The ride to downtown Pittsburgh is very easy.

If we head back to The Burgh again in the future, we will certainly consider Barb & Mike’s place for another stay if our party size allows. Thank you for a great weekend!

Clean, well equipped, thoughtfully maintained

  • 5 of 5

We found practically everything one would need to call a place home. Very impressed by the attention to detail in desire to make the customers happy. From small labels telling us where the light switches were to the cold water in the fridge and greate selection of coffee in the kitchen and very comfortable beds, everything was perfectly thought about and prepared to serve us best. Thank you for your hospitality!

Great stop for the night

  • 5 of 5

Booking was a breeze. I had a correspondence with the owners and they were very informative and friendly. The unit was clean and the owners seemed to have thought of all the little things, offering toothpaste, body wash, water bottles, etc. Nice neighborhood, older home, but kept clean and nice.

Excellent setup, walking distance to the music we enjoyed all weekend

  • 5 of 5

We attended shows at Mr Smalls Theatre over the weekend and this duplex is located a ten minute walk to those events. It was only two of us enjoying the space, and four would have been no problem. Appreciate the snacks, coffee and real coffee creamer made plentifully available. Would stay here again, no problem!
