About this listing
*This is booked 1/15/17-6/15/17. If the dates are shown as being available, it's because airbnb unblocked my calendar.* This is a roomy apartment with room to relax and unwind. It is a 1st floor apartment that sleeps up to two. Furnished with lots of little touches to make you immediately feel at home. On a quiet street, but less than 2 blocks to a bustling main street and major busline.
This one bedroom, one bath apartment is a dedicated rental, on the first floor of a duplex.
This apartment offers complete privacy and quiet so you can really settle in and enjoy your visit to Pittsburgh.
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 living room with a flat screen TV w/ DVD player and local channels. There's also a DVD library. The bedroom features a queen sized bed (linens included), a separate seating area, and lots of storage.
Perfect for one or two people.
This property is not a fit for those who:
- usually stay in a hotel
- dislike being on your 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, even w/ detailed directions
- are especially sensitive to the heat in the summer. This property does not have central air conditioning.
Guests have the entire first floor apartment. You have your own private, secure entrance. There is a small, shared, secure hallway (w/ the upstairs apt) that leads to the basement, which houses the washer and dryer both apartments share.
Interaction with guests
As soon as you make a reservation with me, you'll receive an email w/ info about parking, directions (w/ shortcuts!), your keyless entry code, and lots of additional info about the property and neighborhood.
Then - I'm pretty much hands off. However, please call or email me with any questions, have a specific need, or require any assistance. That's what I'm here for!
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. It's a friendly, family-oriented, fun neighborhood. And you can be right in the middle of it.

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!
