The Space

I'm 29, from South Florida, a medical student, and I speak fluent English and Spanish. I can manage to communicate in Portuguese and Italian with a little patience. I moved to Lawrenceville because I like the convenience, and what the neighborhood has to offer. When I'm not knee deep in research, though, I listen to all sorts of music that will never make the Top 40, eat, cook, run/bike, and when I can, concoct adventures around town. If you blasted Britney Spears around the house, I might cut you. Otherwise, I'm basically a very open-minded laissez faire kind of guy.

I'm looking to rent out my spacious second floor bedroom + den/office and shared full bathroom in my 1900+ sq ft Lawrenceville home. This is enough space to fit four crouching adult elephants (which are not included nor welcome. They'd never make it up the stairs.) The room also has fresh paint on the walls, and new wood floors installed in late July 2013. Furnishings included: a queen sized futon, a dresser, a bookcase, desk + chair, nightstand, hangers, fans, window AC unit, space heater and plenty of other bedroom accoutrements if you want or need them. My fairly renovated house has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, plenty of storage space in the basement, washer/dryer, nicely furnished living room/dining room/kitchen, small fenced in patio/garden, and a chimpanzee butler named Mr. Bubbles instructed to exclusively wear baby blue tuxedos.

The house is located right behind Children's Hospital on Sherrod Street. You would be a couple of blocks from bus routes that take you directly to Shadyside, East Liberty, Oakland, Squirrel Hill, Southside, The Strip, Downtown, Northside, The Waterfront, and beyond. Best of all, you would be in the middle of the Lawrenceville's and Bloomfield's brand of bars, restaurants, art, music, coffee shops, denizens, bicycles, tattoos, pot holes, yuppies, hippies, hipsters, punks, ex-pats, pre-pats, street cats.

Rates would include a bedroom, den/office, a shared bathroom (with my excellent other roommate), and utilities (electricity, gas, water, internet).

Note: The Street View functions on airbnb other map sites are out of date by 5 years in my neighborhood.

  • Although we haven't met Christian in person due to our late arrival, everything was perfectly organized and went very smoothly. Christian's house is very nice, our room was tidy and comfy. Cat that lives in the house was cute. Neighborhood is quiet and quite pleasant. Recommended!

  • We had a group of friends in town and could not accomodate all of them at our house.... so we found Christian's place on airbnb. It was our first experience with this type of thing and my friends really enjoyed staying at Christian's. They had plenty of space and privacy and really liked that it was walking distance to all the shops/restaurants/bars in Lawrenceville. Christian was quick to make arrangements for our stay and respond quickly over email. I recommend here if you get the chance!

  • Christian is a perfect host who gives you freedom and flexibility, as well as being very friendly, welcoming and interesting. The bedroom is indeed very spacious and the house is a cosy place to stay. Very well located if you want to explore this very lively neighborhood and the rest of the city.

  • First time using Airbnb and it was great! Christian was a fun and welcoming host, and the place was just what we needed, a spot in a to sleep while we explored Pittsburgh during our first time visit. Loved the neighborhood too!

  • Christian is an excellent host. Super welcoming, accommodating and, even though I didnt get to hang out with him a lot, he is super fun to be around. His house is beautiful and in an excellent and colorful neighborhood. His shower is amazing!! hahaha... You'd be lucky to meet him and stay at his house.

I'm a 4th year medical student at the University of Pittsburgh, and a homeowner for 3 years now. I live in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville neighborhood because it resonate with it's unique sense of self. When not studying my face off or doing neurology research, I am always trying to find worthwhile activities around town. It can be live music, yoga, working on my garden, checking out local art, foods, cocktails, exhibits, etc. I try to fill my time with things that are subjectively meaningful.
