Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeeps

Enjoy a private apartment located in the heart of the East Carson Street Historic District on South 19th Street. Close walking distance to pretty much everything - shops, restaurants, galleries, theater, and a vibrant nightlife scene.

This home features renovations made by local artisans who crafted the stained glass, iron work, and Spanish Cedar doors and windows in its original style. The apartment interior features pecan wood floors, the original mantel piece, and furnishings from Perlora, a popular furniture store located just a few blocks away.

--Sleep comfortably on a queen size 13-inch thick pillow-top mattress - same model as the famous "Heavenly Bed"

--Fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast pantry items for you to prepare to your liking

--Dine in the cheery kitchen or feel free to eat on the outdoor patio when the weather is nice (available in spring, summer, and fall)

--Free Internet access and cable TV with Netflix

--Conveniently located laundry facility

We live in the upper apartment and will be happy to assist you for the duration of your stay.

Right around the corner from great food and drinks and lots to see and do, as well as all the practical necessities - the dry cleaner, grocery store, drug store, fitness center, post office, bank, and plenty more.

Nearby access to the South Side Trail where you can hike or bike with a unique view of the city from the riverfront.

Some excerpts from the TripAdvisor description of the South Side neighborhood:

“A must-see for anyone visiting Pittsburgh.”

“During the day you find a wide range of shops with tons of character. If the national chains are more your speed, head further up Carson Street where you'll find the Southside Works… but the true charm of the South Side is between 10th and 25th streets.”

“As for nightlife, whatever your taste, you'll find it on Carson Street… no one will be disappointed.”

--The location is convenient to downtown and other popular neighborhoods and tourist attractions

--Uber and Lyft are available in Pittsburgh and the nearest bus stop can be seen from the front window of the apartment

--Free on-street parking; more details will be provided prior to your arrival

For anyone who is very tall, please note that the doorway into the bedroom (shown in the second photo in the listing) is about 74 inches in height to accommodate the air duct above it. This is about 6 inches short of normal door height. All other doorways and ceilings are standard height.

Tastefully Furnished and Immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and host Bridget -- by far the best we have ever experienced. The apartment was immaculate and Bridget thought of every detail--breakfast items in fridge, flowers, and sightseeing brochures to name a few. We parked car for 3 days out front and took a bus or Uber everywhere. Don't miss Mt. Washington at night--a beautiful city. Thank you for a memorable Pittsburgh experience.

Great location and wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic- within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. Bridget was great - we arrived to snacks and breakfast items in the fridge - even a bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate our anniversary! It was evident she thought of all the details to make our visit so wonderful. We had a great time celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary in Pittsburgh!

Beautiful Space

  • 5 of 5

Great space for two. Location is perfect, convenient for walking to anything on the Southside and a short Urber to downtown and sports facilities. Clean and very comfortable. Beautiful apartment. The extra's of breakfast foods, ice cream and snacks were very much appreciated. Will definitely be using this spot again for our future trips to the Burgh.

A REALLY COOL PLACE IN A COOL PLACE :)

  • 5 of 5

My wife is from Pittsburgh so we make the trip into the Steel city often. I have used VRBO successfully in other areas of the country and saw Bridget's place here and thought it looked pretty cool. Well it is! Bridget was waiting out front for us when we arrived and welcomed us to the property. It is very well furnished with a front living area, a middle room that functions as the bedroom, a back room with kitchen, laundry and bathroom. The back door leads to a nice patio arrangement with a table and chairs. She thought of everything! As others have stated, the frig is STOCKED with all kinds of goodies. The KEURIG coffee maker comes with a variety of selections. But, what makes it even cooler, is it's location just off of Carson Street! Full of restaurants and night time entertainment, there was no need to drive anywhere. And if you want to venture without using your car, the public transportation is great. We purchased a week metro pass for $25/ea and grabbed either the 48 or the 51 bus to downtown or the metro everyday. This is a really cool place...in a really cool place :)
