This is a perfect room for residents and students working or visiting the local hospitals or universities.
Your large room is located on the first floor of our three story house. It has refinished original pine wood floors, high ceilings and your own private bathroom. Eclectic art decorates the room, making it a truly unique space. WiFi is available throughout the house. There are usually other AirBnB guests staying in the other rooms on the upper floors. Guests have shared access to the kitchen and laundry facilities.
Oakland is the "brains" of Pittsburgh. It houses Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Carlow University as well as the world-famous UPMC Medical Center. Our house is located within easy distance to all of these institutions. If that wasn't enough, we are also a stones throw from the Phipps Conservatory, Carnegie Museums and historic Carnegie Library. Stroll down to Oakland's main business district where you will find a vibrant mix of coffee shops, restaurants and bars.
Pittsburgh has seen a "green revolution" over the past ten years. Make sure to get out on the river for a kayak paddle, hike one of our beautiful city parks (Schenley Park is just two blocks our house) or ride one of our riverfront bike trails. Our house has easy access for bus, bike or car to downtown. Many direct busline stops are at the end of the street, taking you within minutes to Duquesne University and blocks from the convention center. My husband bikes to work on the Southside and loves to show visitors how to get around the city on two wheels. We have an extra hybrid bike that you are more than welcome to use while you are here to take a tour.

Interaction with Guests
Our interaction can vary depending on our schedules and our guests' schedules. Sometimes we cross paths frequently, sometimes guests come and go without us meeting. We tend to keep busy schedules and travel frequently so interaction can vary.
A fifteen minute walk from campus/great food, comfy bed, beautifully decorated, with a perfect little work desk for a "business trip". The best part of this stay, however, is Michael and Amy and their family. Both are warm, welcoming and made this stay feel like a home away from home. Thank you! - Emerald
This was a great first experience with airbnb! Michael offered to pick me up from the train station and dropped me off at UPMC presby for my interview. They were both very nice and accommodating and the room was just as pictured. Thank you!
Amy and Michael's house is perfect. It's lovely, pretty, comfortable and clean. They have been really kind to me. Knowing that I traveled there from a distant place, Michael kindly picked me up from the PIT international airport. I truly appreciate their warm hospitality. Sometimes they also share their delicious home meals with me. I felt much delighted with Amy's cooking. It's very lucky for me to stay in such a sweet home for my first time in Pittsburgh.
The room that I stayed is ornamented with their creativity and ambidexterity. There are many amazing decorations in the room. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is very clean. Their house is also full of surprises. I enjoyed watching many beautiful birds singing in their yard since Michael places a small lovely bird house with some bird food there. As the wind blows, the music coming from a wind bell in the yard also makes me relaxed. I had a wonderful time here. I also took snow wedding photos for my wife in the yard during her visit. The pictures are really fascinating! We really love the place, and we will definitely come back here every time when visiting Pittsburgh.
The host was not home when we arrived but their communication was very accommodating leading up to our arrival. The home itself was heated up and lit and very welcoming when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable and the attached bathroom was very convenient. Parking on the street is one hour between 8 am to 9pm and thus can be difficult. Luckily the hosts have a parking lot about a half block nearby and other "creative" parking solutions. The neighborhood seems nice and is a short walk to a nice park and a the CMU/Pitt neighborhood. Overall, I would say the experience was great and would recommend the house to others!
Perfect stay! Felt very comfortable in this room, and my hosts made me feel welcome. I unfortunately didn't get to meet them since I was pretty busy, but I got a phone call on my arrival with details.
Amy and Michael were incredibly accommodating and hospitable. The room and bathroom were immaculate and comfortable. And they generously offered us breakfast every morning. They offered very helpful advice about restaurants and neighborhoods as we searched for an apartment. We would definitely recommend this listing. Great experience!!
My 2 night stay was one of the best I've had from Airbnb! Michael was very welcoming and even offered to drive me from the train station. The room was very clean and cute, and the house was quiet, which was great for my interview the next morning. Very pleasant, highly recommended!
