We offer a pet friendly Airbnb because we adore our own dog, Mindy, and understand the importance of traveling with four-legged family members. As long as your pet is well mannered they are more than welcome. There is a small grassy area behind the building your dog can use. It’s also worth noting that our space is full of house plants - some of which may be toxic to animals if ingested. With this in mind, if your pet likes to chew on plants (or anything else for that matter) we recommend crating them while you are out.
Our space is kid friendly, but does have stairs to the unit and house plants - some of which may be toxic to humans if ingested. If you’re traveling with a baby or toddler let us know a play pen and a pack and play is available upon request.
We may not see you during your stay, but reach out any time. We are happy to assist with your travel plans, dinner plans and make recommendations based upon your unique taste.Neighborhood overview
STRIP DISTRICTGetting around
Don't be fooled by the name.
The Strip, as it's called, is foodie heaven and as authentic as it is fun. Locals love it for its low prices and tremendous selections. The one-half square mile shopping district is chock full of ethnic grocers, produce stands, meat and fish markets and sidewalk vendors. Breathe deep because you won't want to escape the splendid aromas of fresh-roasted coffee or just-baked bread. Bordering Downtown, this neighborhood is pure Pittsburgh.
Gritty and authentic. Bursting with local flavor. No pretense, no fluff. Just plain good.

"The Strip," as locals call it, is just that – a narrow strip (one-half mile) of land between the Allegheny River and a mountain of a hill.
It's the city's biggest and arguably hippest neighborhood.
Home to many artists and designers, this trendy 'ville hosts some of the city's biggest arts events. It's a neighborhood on the rise with first-rate, one-of-a-kind shops and an awesome dining scene. The neighborhood has undergone such a revival that it's called a "go-to" destination by The New York Times. Located less than three miles from Downtown, it's a neighborhood with deep roots too. In fact, composer Stephen Foster's father charted the street plans in 1814.
Walkable and welcoming. Entrepreneurial. Unique and distinct. Old-world charm, modern-day edge.
