About this listing

This is a beautiful, comfortable and relaxing apartment with free on-street parking in a calm, quiet tree-lined neighborhood. Close to parks, the Zoo, museums, cool coffee shops, restaurants, and the city's major universities. You will love it!

The space

Please contact me before booking to inquire about availability, and tell me a bit about yourself. Please also note that Airbnb requires that all guests, including infants and children, be counted in the number of guests.

If you have a large group, I also have two other apartments at this same location (one on the first floor and one on the second floor); each one can accommodate 6, for a total of 18 in all. They are all similar in size and very beautiful.

Interaction with guests

I'm happy to give you tips on places to see, restaurants, etc. based on your interests.

Victoria's place was wonderful -- she has thought of all the little touches that make a stay comfortable. K-cups for the keurig, condiments in the fridge (perhaps from other guests, but still helpful), shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom, etc. We had 2 adults and 2 kids, and were very comfortable for our 3 days.

Victoria User ProfileVictoria is a superhost.

I'm a researcher and consultant, and a huge Pittsburgh booster. Hosting on Airbnb is my way of sharing the charms of Pittsburgh with others. The city has a long and proud history, and has something for everyone; whether it be sporting, cultural, academic, outdoor or many other activities.

I love to travel myself, and have worked hard to make my apartments as comfortable as possible for my guests. Come and enjoy!
