Great welcoming host, nice and comfortable apartment in a lovely neighborhood. Thanks, Julie!

Julie was a perfect host. She maintained great contact, provided a wealth of information and called to make sure that we had everything we needed. The property was as-described and if you're looking at a perfect jumping off point to explore Pittsburgh, this is it. You have easy access to Lawrenceville, it's a short ride to down to the PNC Park area, and the neighborhood feels perfectly safe. The roof deck is an ideal place to kick back at the end of a long day with a cold beer and enjoy the weather and sounds of the Steel City.

I've seen this listing before when family/friends have been in town. So glad it was available this time. Very clean and in a convenient location to great PGH neighborhoods. Julie made everything easy. Would love to have this space available for future visitors.

My teenage son and I were in Pittsburgh for a whirlwind visit in June. We spent two nights and a day in Julie's apartment. It was an excellent experience. The apartment suited us to a T. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious, and well kitted out with everything we could have wanted or needed to make our visit a success. The third floor living room was particularly charming and we absolutely loved the walk-out to the roof deck. Sitting on the deck -- under the stars at night or in the morning sun -- and looking out over the hills of Pittsburgh was delightful. The apartment is well located in a nifty little neighbourhood, within easy walking distance of most amenities and public transit. If like us you prefer to experience the city you're in more like the people who live there and less like a tourist, this location can't be beat. There are no chain stores/restaurants in the neighbourhood and we loved the indie feel of the place. It was fun to walk around there, plus we ate several very good meals in neighbourhood restaurants. Big thumbs up for the locale! We couldn't have asked for a better host than Julie. She was at all times responsive, helpful, and kind, going above and beyond the call of duty to supply us with information to help us find our way around since it was our first visit to the city. We have every intention of going back to Pittsburgh as this experience was so positive, in no small part thanks to Julie. And if we do go back, we'll rent from her again.

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!
