About This Listing
HUGE apt that accommodates 2-5 easily. Upstairs apartment (2nd and 3rd floors). On a quiet street, but less than 2 blocks to a bustling main street. Three miles or less to Pitt and CMU, all sporting venues, museums, convention center.
*Please send me a message first (rather than a reservation request right off the bat) so we can get to know each other and make sure my place is a fit for you-thanks!*
Dwelling is a dedicated rental property, so you can settle in, relax, and enjoy your visit. Comfortably sleeps up to five with lots of room for privacy.
Apartment has its own private entrance with keyless entry code for additional security. The fully equipped eat-in kitchen has everything you need to prepare, cook, and serve a simple meal or snack.
The huge living room has a separate library area and seating for ten with a flat screen TV w/ DVD player and local channels. A third bed can be added to either the living room or office (modest fee applies, arranged prior to check-in).
Bedrooms have window a/c units (June-Labor Day). Kitchen has a ceiling fan. Box fans for other areas of the apartment.
Each of the two bedrooms feature a queen sized bed and lots of storage. Den can be converted to bedroom w/ triple high, twin inflatable bed.
Free, full laundry facilities in basement, shared with the other apartment in building.
This property is not a fit for those who:
- usually stay in a hotel
- dislike being on their own (including checking yourself in and out of the property)
- feel uncomfortable in a working class, city neighborhood
- find technology (logging onto WiFi, using TV remotes, keyless entry systems) to be a challenge
Guests get an entry code for the exterior door, so multiple arrival times are not a problem. You have a private, secure entrance. Full use of the apartment and a large outdoor deck, accessible via a walk out from the living room.
Interaction with Guests
Guests receive an email with information about parking, directions that can easily shave up to an hour from your trip, and lots of additional info about the property and neighborhood.
I am available by email or phone to answer any questions or help in any way.
Please look at my guidebook for just a sampling of all the shops and restaurants just a few blocks from the property. The shops sell handmade ravioli and cannoli and customers chatter in Italian. It is, after all, our "Little Italy": a friendly, family-oriented neighborhood.
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. In a working class, urban neighborhood.
Cool off at the community pool, just two blocks away!
If you drive, you have access to one parking spot. Depending on the needs of the other apartment, I may have a second spot available. If you have extra cars, there are 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 would be happy to help with restaurant recommendations, steer you to local attractions I think you'll like, places often overlooked by native Pittsburghers and tourists alike.
Please treat this property with respect; if something does become damaged or broken, please let me know. Guests check themselves in, any time after 3:00 p.m. using their unique access code. Great for groups with multiple arrival times! Check out is no later than 11:00 a.m.
Please make a reservation if the check in and check out dates are fixed, certain, and not subject to change. No refunds will be made for early departures.
Sorry, furry friends have to stay home. This is a non-smoking facility. Maximum occupancy is five persons. All guests must be 21 years of age or older. A triple high inflatable twin bed is available I also have a complimentary Pack and Play; please let me know if you need this ahead of time so we can make the arrangements prior to check-in.
Apartment was in a good location, very easy with the electronic locks too. It was nice and quiet and exactly what we were looking for. Julie was very accommodating and understanding. Highly recommended!
Easy and painless. Julie was right on top of things from the moment we inquired about her place. We received all information well in advance which made our arrival and departure process a walk-in-the-park. The place was clean and comfortable, and has a great roof deck! We didn't meet Julie in person but would highly recommend staying at one of her properties!
when all the hotels downtown were booked, we turned to airbnb to find lodging as close to the downtown area as possible -- Julie's duplex is a short uber ride from town and the 2 bedroom layout worked well for me and my coworker. the apartment is very spacious and the neighborhood has some historic charm to it. very quiet. wifi works great, enjoyed making coffee in the morning.
