The Space

Large private bedroom in a Victorian house on a quiet street in an artsy neighborhood. Room has a comfortable queen size bed, antique dresser, two night stands, work desk, large closet, and private A/C. The room is on the third floor, with all other amenities down below (two bathrooms, kitchen), so you get lots of privacy.

Guest Access

We believe we have the best bathroom in Pittsburgh, with clawfoot tub, big shower, & gorgeous fixtures. Beautiful kitchen with gas range & large fridge. Big yard with seating and front porch with swing. Living room, dining room, free high-speed Internet. Washer/dryer. Free parking.

Interaction with Guests

Room is on third floor (walkup) with two bathrooms, kitchen, living space below. You basically get most of the third floor to yourself and the rest of the house is shared.

Hal works from home and is usually available to help with anything that may come up; since Xavi was born, Huong's been around most days as well. We're usually busy doing our own thing, but super flexible, so if you need something, let us know!

The Neighborhood

Lawrenceville is one of Pittsburgh's most happening neighborhoods, with restaurants, cafes, art galleries, & convenient access to everything. In the heart of Pittsburgh's "design zone", beside the Allegheny River, you get a sense of Pittsburgh's history and its future all at once.

Getting Around

Besides all that Lawrenceville has to offer, we're walking distance to Children's Hospital, Bloomfield, Friendship, & more. On several bus lines, 5 minutes to Greyhound/Amtrak & downtown, easy access to universities, Shadyside, or anywhere you need to go.

Other Things to Note

Lots of on-street parking (we supply a parking pass). Please give us at least 24 hours advanced notice. We do NOT accept same-day bookings.
