About this listing
This is a perfect room for residents, students, and parents who are working or visiting the local hospitals or universities. The house is located in the off-campus, student housing part of Oakland.
My husband and I have been using AirBnB since 2010. We have stayed with hosts in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and too many States to count. We finally finished the renovation of our 1897 home and wanted to be part of the great AirBnB hosting experience.
This large room is located on the second floor of a five bedroom house in the desirable Oakland area of Pittsburgh. Guests share a newly renovated bathroom with two other rooms. Whether you are in town for a conference, residency or an international exchange program at the university, this is the perfect choice. Guests share the kitchen and laundry facilities. Meet other interesting guests and get to know Pittsburgh.
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 stone's 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 bus line 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.
All guests will have access to the kitchen and laundry facilities.
Coffee and tea is provided as well as basic breakfast goodies. We love to host and play ambassador for our lovely city!
The Pitt/CMU shuttle stop is almost right outside our front door. Also there are buses at the end of the street that go directly downtown and to Duquesne University.
Guests have access to a kitchen, living room and washer and dryer.
Other Things to Note
Just as a clarification for new Airbnb users - our house does not provide a typical BnB experience. We offer clean comfortable rooms in a shared house with little to no interaction from us the host. Our space works well for grad students and doctors who are in town looking for a place to stay for a weekend or a month. If this environment work for you then we look forward to hosting you while you are in town.
Since there are often multiple guests in the house at any given time we ask that folks keep the common areas clean and observe quiet times from 10 PM until 9 AM.
