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
- require central air conditioning
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.

Other things to note

Greetings from Pittsburgh! It would be my pleasure to host your visit to this great little city. I've been here for many years and love it here. I'm here to help make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. My recommendations include many eateries and attractions off the beaten track that many locals don't know about! :)
Running my three properties is my full-time job and I devote my efforts accordingly to help ensure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay. I'm also honored to be the moderator for the Pittsburgh Airbnb Hosts group and selected to be on the steering committee working with local govt to regulate short-term rentals.
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!
