    Why We Love the South Side of Pittsburgh

    Ask anyone who lives or has lived in Pittsburgh in the past and they will tell you that living on the South Side is living in a neighborhood where everyone knows and looks out for one another. They will tell you that no matter where you go, you will always find a familiar face when walking down the street.

    Things to do on the South Side by Day

    The South Side can be said to be the Greenwich Village of Pittsburgh. It is the city’s best walkable neighborhood. Things are pretty calm during the day, as those without 9 to 5 jobs wander the streets and go about their business.

    They say the South Side is one of the few places where you regularly see both old ladies with blue hair and punk kids with blue hair. The working-class neighborhood turned into a popular destination many years back, as dive bars, record stores, funky coffee shops and lots of tattoo parlors began popping up.

    One of our personal favorite spots on the South Side is the Beehive, one of the most awesome indie coffee shop we have found in any city.  You can also stop by the Milk Shake Factory for a variety of decadent shakes and sweets.

    Best of all? The South Sider Riverfront Trail provides five miles of beautiful trail for hiking and cycling with stunning city views as well as a forest of trees. The trail connects with the Great Allegheny Passage, which goes all the way to...

    What Airbnb Guests Expect

    What will Airbnb guests expect from renting properties? Great Airbnb hosts who want to ensure their guests have a comfortable stay, should be sure to provide a few key items for them. Although some of the things in this list may appear obvious, it is amazing how easy it is to forget the basics when worrying over the online listing or pricing structure. By including the items below, guests will enjoy a comfortable stay and be likely to recommend and highly rate the Airbnb property.

    A comfortable bed
    The big bed is something that all guests love and a comfortable night’s sleep is number one on the list when guests decide if they will go back or recommend any Airbnb.  Most guests usually are out and about visiting the area and the most time spent at the property is when it's time to sleep.  After a fun filled party at night they are looking for a fabulous night's sleep. Hosts should not scrimp when it comes to the bed, mattress, pillows and linens.  A restful night's sleep is top priority!

    Tea and coffee making facilities
    Although when guests are staying in an Airbnb they do not expect hotel standards, a few amenities will always be well received and help to enhance a stay. Hosts should try to provide a kettle and a small selection of teas, coffees, sugar and sweeteners. If there is a fridge in the property it is nice to leave some milk for the guest’s convenience when they first...
