The Space

Queen size bed and private room in a town house in East Pittsburgh. Bus stop at top of the street (Rural and Negley, Penn and Negley) other routes within two blocks. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. (Pig and Chicken, Harvard and Highland, NaCl, BRGR, Sharpe Edge...etc). East Liberty is an up and coming colorful neighborhood and a lot of new businesses are developing which gives it a lot of flavor. Connected to community garden (Pennley Place) through a walkway out of the backyard. Also, there is a park with neighborhood basketball court, tennis courts and playground.
Three cats - though you will have your own private room if you prefer not to interact with them.
Wireless Internet and Netflix access.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great host, well organized, located close to many things

    July 2014
  • The place was very comfortable. Awesome bed and Larry was very good about leaving snacks and drinks out for me. I would definitely stay here again.

  • AMAZING!!! Larry was an exceptional host who is easy to get on with. The house was extremely clean and the bed was really comfortable. The trip was made more enjoyable due to Larry's tireless efforts to offer advice and tips about the local area. I would definitely recommend to anyone thinking about going to stay in Pittsburgh.

  • Larry, our host, wasn't home at all during the one night stay but was immediately responsive to text/messaging/calls. The home was clean and exactly as described. He provided information about the local area, bike to borrow, laundry facilities and much more. Way more then you would find most anywhere especially for the price. It was a nice and relaxing stay. And the cats are quite friendly too.

  • Larry was a phenomenal host. He was incredibly friendly and welcoming, fun to talk to, and personable. He was exceptionally accommodating, especially given my circumstances. I would recommend him and his place to anyone and everyone. Just do it. You won't find a better host, and you won't find a better price.

    The bedroom I stayed in (the green room) was very clean, had all the necessities, and was the perfect size for 1-2 people. He has 3 friendly cats in the unit. Breakfast items (bagels, fruit) included downstairs. Living room was clean with couch and TV. WiFi included, which worked well. Larry provides a wonderful little welcome packet (prepared graciously by his girlfriend) that tells all about the unit, the area, and the city, complete with personal recommendations.

    Larry makes it incredibly easy for you to arrive, get set up, and then come and go as you please. Larry travels frequently, so you may never even get the chance to chat with him (your loss), but regardless you won't have any trouble getting access to the unit, and you'll have everything you need. Location is perfect - right in the heart of Shadyside. Parking was easy.

    Wonderful host; nice, clean, and affordable room. In sum: get over there!

  • Larry was a very nice and accommodating host; he even offered to send back a shirt I had accidentally left behind. The house was comfortable and well-equipped,

  • Larry kept talking with me before I arrived in his place. It was my first time to make a reservation through Airbnb, so I was a little bit afraid of this system. I don’t know if he was concerned of my feeling, but he made me relaxed.
    Also his place is wonderful. I love his cats, especially Lola. She was staying with me every night. ;)

  • Everything went very smooth, Larry and his girlfriend were very kind and helpful, the place was in general a good value for money and the cats just adorable. Free parking was an advantage. It was also nice to have some fruits in the morning, which Larry leaves for his guests.

  • Larry has created a warm and welcoming place at his home. Clean and comfortable room. Everything you could ask for has been provide. Food for breakfast, towels and toiletries, maps of the area, public transit suggestions, suggestions of place to eat, etc.

    There lots of convenient parking available next to Larry's house and several amenities nearby. It is certainly an up an coming neighbourhood with lots of trendy restaurants and shops a few blocks away.

    Great spot. Great host. Thanks Larry!

  • Larry is a most gracious host. I didn't get a chance to meet him in person because he was out of town but his cats make for great company and his place is very welcoming. I definitely recommend staying there if you're around town.
