Available for rent is a large furnished bedroom in a beautiful old Colonial in the East-Liberty/Highland Park area. On a quiet, tree-lined street, the house is a couple of minutes away from a bus line (71A), and only a few blocks from Highland park. Buses to Oakland/Downtown run every ten minutes. Bryant street restaurants and coffee-shops are within walking distance.
My husband and I are professionals in our 30s working with the University of Pittsburgh and we have made several significant updates to this house in the past year, retaining its old-world charm but making it more amenable to modern-day living.
This bedroom is on the second floor of the house.
The following are included: Comfortable queen bed with clean mattress, pillows, sheets, comforter, dorm-sized refrigerator, central air-conditioning, microwave, dresser, coffee machine, coffee and tea supplies. Nice-sized shared bathroom with shower, vanity, toilet. Towels, washcloths are provided.
***Note: Breakfast is not included in the room rate but coffee/tea is. Please check out our guidebook for suggested breakfast places. If we are home, you may use our kitchen to heat meals etc., but the kitchen will not be available for preparing elaborate meals. ***
Free and fast Wi-Fi internet (FIOS).
Laundry facilities are available for an additional charge of $1 per load.
On street parking is free and readily available.
The bedroom is large enough to accommodate another person on a futon mattress, so if you are are a party of three, we can accommodate you as well.
***A note about check-in and check out times: On weekdays, we prefer you check in after 5 pm, and check out by 8:30 am, however, we may be accommodate you if you need to check in early or check out late. Just ask us in your reservation booking email. On weekends, we are more flexible about check in and check out times. ***
Soniya was a great host, and the room we stayed in was lovely. It was on a floor where no one else was staying and the extra privacy was nice. Soniya was easy to get ahold of as we made our way to Pittsburgh, and I would be happy to stay at her place again.
I had an amazing stay and learned so much while in PA on this trip. The Gadgil family was very kind and helpful during my stay, providing my very own coffee maker - what could be better!!! Thanks tons for the fun and a wonderfully peaceful place!
Accomodations were clean and the room was warm with the appropriate amount of bedding. The room was spacious with a queen size bed. Sharing the bathroom worked out as we were up and left early. There was limited access to the host which for us was not a problem.
We were very happy with our experience. The bedsheets and linens were very clean and fresh. The hostess was gracious, warm, and friendly. We slept very peacefully. It was nice to have wifi, refrig, and a microwave, though we only used the wifi for our short stay.
Clean, comfortable and convenient.
Soniya and her husband were wonderfully sweet and warm hosts. I felt right at home. The room was very spacious and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.
Very friendly hosts, quiet neighborhood that's close to everything, big room with comfy bed. What more do you want? :)
Soniya and Vinod were amazing hosts. I had an excellent time visiting Pittsburgh. It was very close to the 71 bus line which takes you straight to Oakland where CMU / Pitt are located.
All in All, if I am visiting Pittsburgh in the near future I would definitely go back.
Stay was great, very clean
Very kind and caring hostess. Nice and large room (we got the bigger one as both were available). No kitchen but refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker available in the room. Also cups and coffee provided by Soniya. Private and very clean bathroom for guests only.
