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.

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 a really cool place :)

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is in a great location for visiting Pittsburg. Very clean and well maintained. Bridget is a fantastic hostess and goes out

of her way to make you feel welcome. The kitchen is stocked with breakfast items that goes above and beyond what you would expect, even

cupcakes and ice cream for desert. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Pittsburg.

We loved our visit!! The home is beautifully maintained and perfectly equipped for a comfortable and peaceful stay. Bridget is a perfect hostess, taking care of all our needs and going above and beyond on extra touches. The home is in a perfect location, in the heart of fun activities and near U. Pitt. We hope to stay here on our return trips to Pittsburgh!

Beautiful stay in Pittsburgh!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great for a couple visiting the city to visit friends or to see a game! It was such a beautiful apartment. Bridgete is the owner and she lives upstairs,and she was such a great hostess! The place is in pristine condition, very nice to walk out the door onto East Carsen Street where all the nightlife is! We will always stay here when we visit Pittsburgh,if avaliable! Thanks Bridgete for such a wonderful homey stay.

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to everything Pittsburgh has to offer. Great location for walking to so many excellent restaurants. Bridget went out of her way to stock breakfast items and snacks - so very thoughtful. Everything was as advertised and I will stay there again next time I am in town.

Great location, beautiful rental!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was in a great location, just around the corner from E Carson St, within walking distance to several bars and restaurants. Bridget was a wonderful host, and made sure we had a very comfortable stay. She filled the fridge with food for breakfast and supplied us with coffee, tea, milk and juice (and cupcakes!) upon our arrival. The rental was beautiful and super clean. Would definitely recommend!
