Property was purchased in May, 2013, and has been completely renovated. Professionally owned and operated by property management professional. Equipped with all the things you need for a relaxing, private, quiet stay in Pittsburgh.

Perfect if you'd like a little more room to stretch out, and are seeking private outdoor space.

If you are newer to airbnb, please send a message first before you make a reservation request and tell me a little bit about yourself and what brings you to Pittsburgh. This way we can become better acquainted and I can make sure the apartment is a good fit for you.

Interaction with Guests

As soon as you make a reservation with me, you'll receive an email from me. This will contain information about parking, directions that can easily shave up to an hour from your trip (I know a trick that takes you nearly the entire way to the property by expressway, eliminating a lot of city driving!), and lots and lots of additional info about the property.

After you receive the email, I'll be happy to answer any questions you have by email or phone, or supply any additional information you may need.

I follow up with a phone call a few days before your check in date, making sure everything is OK and to make sure you're all set.

Then - I'm pretty much hands off. My philosophy is a bit different from many hosts and is simply this: you are coming to Pittsburgh for a purpose: to attend a conference, go to a class, attend a wedding, sightsee, catch up w/ old friends. You're not here to hear me jibber jabber on the phone to you every day--you're here to enjoy yourself.

HOWEVER, with that said, I encourage all guests to call or email me if they have any questions, have a specific need, or if they require any assistance.

The Neighborhood

Are you looking for a walkable, authentic neighborhood close to everything? Welcome to Bloomfield, Pittsburgh's "Little Italy". The shops sell handmade ravioli and cannoli. The patrons chatter in Italian. It's a friendly, family-oriented, fun neighborhood. And you can be right in the middle of it.

The property is at the end of a quiet, safe residential street, yet less than two blocks to a bustling street featuring with shops, restaurants, and bars. Children's Hospital and West Penn Hospital are both 5 blocks away, and Shadyside Hospital is less than a mile away.

Getting around

If you drive, you have access to one parking spot. If you have extra cars, I can tell you about nearby spots where you can park your other vehicles.

Property is less than 2 blocks from a main bus line to get you to downtown, the strip district, shadyside, oakland, and squirrel hill in minutes.

You can use public transit to get from the bus station/Megabus stop/AMTRAK to property in 15 minutes. You can use public transit from the airport to the property--for less than $5.

Other Things to Note

I love this neighborhood! I live in Bloomfield, too, and would be happy to help with restaurant recommendations, steer you to local attractions I think you'll like, all with an eye to places often overlooked by native Pittsburghers and tourists alike.

About
Greetings from Pittsburgh! I'm an extensive traveler myself and have lived in other parts of the country, but keep coming back to my adopted hometown of Pittsburgh. I just love it here! Running my three properties is my full-time job (although I do as much volunteering in the community as I can) and I devote my efforts accordingly to help ensure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay. Think of me as your personal concierge, and use my knowledge of the city for suggestions for sightseeing, dining, and enjoying all that Pittsburgh has to offer. I've even helped people find houses to buy and apartments to rent! I love having people stay here and have welcomed people from all over the world. When I'm not acting as an Innkeeper, I dream about my favorite destination: Barbados! Hope to see you soon!
