This 1 BR apartment in the 500 block of N Negley is on bus line for easy commute to Pitt, CMU, West Penn Hospital, UPMC hospitals, G**gle/Bakery Square, Downtown, & more. Walking distance to a Healthy Ride bike rental station, shopping, & dining. Free on-street parking on adjacent streets, with no permit required.

The space
This 1 bedroom apartment occupies the entire 3rd floor attic of a large 3 story home that has been converted to apartments. Perfect for 1 or 2 people for extended stays, and up to 4 people for shorter stays (such as for a weekend when you're just needing a place to sleep & shower while you're in town for an event).

The apartment is in an older building. While it is definitely not fancy, it is clean and comfortable. Although the rooms have some sloped ceilings, they still feel very roomy.

Absolutely no smoking, vaping, pets, or parties are permitted in the apartment.

The apartment includes:
• WiFi access
• Window AC units installed in bedroom and main living area (open floor plan kitchen/dining/living room) during the summer months

• Living/dining area with twin-size daybed (with a real mattress), coffee table, side table, floor lamps, TV with a Roku (signed into the Xfinity channel app to access our basic cable package... you'll need to log into your own streaming account channel apps on the Roku if you want to view paid content such as Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, HBO, ESPN, etc.), dinette with 4 chairs, closet, and several windows.
• Kitchen with stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, rice cooker, electric water kettle, dishes, flatware, glasses, cookware, and other basic kitchenware for preparing simple meals

• WE PERMIT A MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY OF 4 PEOPLE (including children and infants, regardless of their age, size, or proposed sleeping arrangements).

• For liability reasons, we do not permit any unregistered guests to be on the property.
• No pets are permitted on the property.

If your traveling party includes children, infants, and/or individuals with mobility issues, please note:
• the apartment is not child proofed and there may be cleaning chemicals and other potentially hazardous household items that are not out of reach of children; the booking Guest and other adults in the group are responsible for supervising children at all times
• we do NOT provide cribs, playpens, highchairs, or any other baby gear
• we do not provide toys, games, or other items to keep children entertained
• the apartment is on the 3rd floor, so getting to it does involve stairs... there is no elevator in the building

Other things to note
To avoid misunderstandings and disappointment RE: pricing, please note that:
• our posted nightly rates vary (see calendar for nightly pricing, and keep in mind that those amounts are the base rates for the first guest)
• if your traveling party includes more than 1 person, there will be an additional nightly charge for each extra guest (including infants and children, regardless of age, size, or proposed sleeping arrangements)
• rates can be seen when you enter your dates and the accurate number of guests in your traveling party
• if the date range you have entered qualifies for a discount based on the length of stay, that discount will have already been taken into account in the total quoted by the Airbnb system

If you have any questions about the rate displayed once you have entered the dates and the correct number of guests, contact us for clarification BEFORE you submit a booking request. Also, please do not submit a booking request unless your travel dates are firm and not subject to change. Once we have accepted a booking request, the only pricing adjustments or alterations that we will consider making will be requests to add nights or to include additional guests who weren't part of the original booking.

Hi we're Azhar (but everyone calls me Lee) and Lisa. Lisa usually handles the bookings and other communications on our listings. Our listings include an entire dome home, 1 & 2 BR apartments, and Private Rooms (please note that if you're viewing one of our "Private Room" listings, most of those are for rooms in the home we live in, which is NOT the dome house... we only very rarely offer "Private Room" rentals in the dome home, as it is usually offered only as a whole house rental). One of our listings, our Yaca-Dome, has been featured in Pittsburgh Magazine, and it may be the most unique Pittsburgh property that is offered on Airbnb. We call it "The Igloo" (take a look at the listing photos and you'll see why), and it's usually available only as a whole house rental. With 3 bedrooms, the home can accommodate up to 6 guests. The Igloo offers a relaxing, private setting while still being within the city limits and close to all the great amenities and attractions Pittsburgh has to offer. The private apartments we offer are located on bus lines that provide easy access to Oakland and Downtown. There is also free on-street parking available. While we occasionally offer private room rentals in the Yaca-Dome or in the 2 bedroom apartment, most of the private rooms we offer are at the home we live in. In our home, you can rent individual or multiple rooms (including one room with its own private en suite bathroom), depending on availability. Our home is conveniently located near all the amenities Pittsburgh's East End has to offer, and is less than a 10 minute walk to Bakery Square/G**gle. We are also located near a CMU and Chatham shuttle stops. And if you bring a car, plenty of free street parking and off-street parking is available. Lee has already added numerous green features to our properties, such as an in-floor radiant heating system (in the 1st floor and basement of our home), changed all the lighting to LED & CFL bulbs, installed many low flow water fixtures, etc. We plan to use part of our Airbnb earnings to add more green features. Ultimately, a Net-Zero house is Lee's goal. Thank you very much for considering us for your Pittsburgh stay, Lee & Lisa
