Book Direct and Save

Save on service fees by booking direct on Houfy.

Situated in a quiet neighborhood just 3 miles away from downtown Pittsburgh, my house has the serenity and character of an old house and the amenities of a modern one. This home has been gracefully restored with the needs of the modern traveler in mind. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs that can accomodate 8 people plus 2 downstairs on an inflatable sofa. There are 1.5 bathrooms in the house. I have a flat screen 4kHD TV in the living room, a fully equipped kitchen, where people can cook and eat plus a high speed internet connection.

Once deemed as non-habitable, I purchased and rescued this house while dreaming of having an artist retreat of some sort. While I am cooking the plans for that thing to happen, because I will have to form a business of some sort, I put it on the market and you, dear traveler, are welcome to stay in it. If you like history, cobblestones and pockets doors my home is for you. Because renting my home is like renting a bit of history.

Meet The Host

I am a laid back software engineer who likes traveling and meeting new people. My hobbies include gardening, cooking and Argentine tango. When I'm not working at some project in my office, I can be found playing with my cats or dancing.

I am an optimist at heart and my motto is Monty Python's "always look on the bright side of life".
