• PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING BEFORE SUBMITTING AN INQUIRY OR A BOOKING REQUEST. Answers to many questions you may have can be found here.
• By reading all of the information we've made available here and by asking in advance any additional questions you may have, you can arrive with realistic and reasonable expectations regarding:
- our House Rules and policies
- the dome itself and the available amenities
- transportation options (we very strongly recommend that guests have a car, as our dome is not in a walkable neighborhood; Uber and Lyft are also viable options).
- proximity to attractions, shopping, dining, and other neighborhoods; the listing's map includes a shaded circle that indicates the general area in which the home is located.

• Is it a spaceship? A yurt? A tent? No, it's a Yaca-Dome! And it's not just any old Yaca-Dome, it's the original Yaca-Dome! But we just call it "The Igloo."
• You'll be staying in one of Pittsburgh's most unique homes. Only 26 Yaca-Domes were ever built; ours was the first one built, and it's also the only Yaca-Dome in this part of the county.
• Our dome was built in 1969 by Pittsburgh native Joseph Yacoboni, who received a US Patent in 1975 for the construction method.
• Yaca-Domes were mentioned in the January 1975 issue of Popular Science.
• The house was designed to withstand earthquakes and 250 mph hurricanes...not something we normally have to worry about in this part of the country!

• If you and/or others in your traveling party are expecting luxury or a place where everything is shiny, new, and perfect, and/or our dome isn't in an area you want to stay in, then please do all parties involved a favor and don't book with us.
• But if you’re looking to stay in a unique and sometimes quirky home that is within the city limits but feels more secluded, our dome may be perfect for you!
• Our dome is NOT located in a posh neighborhood or a sterile/sanitized/homogeneous cookie-cutter development.
• As our dome is a very unique vintage property that contains mostly vintage furnishings, the dome and furnishings do display some age-related wear. We’ve made various updates and improvements over the time we’ve had the dome, and plan to continue doing so as time and finances permit.
• Some of this listing's photos are Airbnb Verified photos; those photos reflect the furnishings and decor at the time of the Airbnb photo shoot (August 2013). Please note that furnishings and decor are subject to change at our discretion. The desk (shown in some photos) is no longer in the home, the bed linens may be different than those pictured, and various other minor changes have been made.
• Please don't book without reading the listing and then leave a negative review based on unrealistic expectations that resulted from your failure to read the listing, look at all the photos, or look at the listing's map to see where our home is located in relation to the places you plan to visit while in Pittsburgh (as with all Airbnb listings, our listing's map includes a shaded circle to indicate the area within which the listed property is located).

PLEASE NOTE that guests are advised to bring a car, or to plan on using Lyft or Uber (which tend to be more reliable and often less expensive than a taxi). As you can see from the info provided below from the WalkScore website, our dome is not in a walkable neighborhood.

The WalkScore website rated our home's location as:
• Car-Dependent (score 26) "Almost all errands require a car."
• Some Transit (score 36) "A few nearby public transportation options."
• Somewhat Bikeable (score 21) "Very steep hills, minimal bike lanes."
* The above Walk Score ratings were obtained in January 2020.

Despite being within the Pittsburgh city limits, the home's location feels more secluded than you might expect. It's in a wooded area, near the end of a quiet lane. There are other homes nearby, but the neighbors are pretty quiet and low-key.

Although our dome isn't in a walkable neighborhood (and there really isn't anything of interest nearby to walk to), shopping and dining in the East Liberty/Shadyside area and other nearby neighborhoods are just a short drive from the dome and include:
• Bakery Square (ZipCar, LA Fitness, Asiatique Thai Bistro, Social, Jimmy John's, Panera, Coffee Tree Roasters, Anthropologie, West Elm, PNC Bank, Marriott Springhill Suites...and the Pittsburgh location of the internet giant whose name Airbnb won't let me post, it comes from its' founders misspelling the word "Googol")
• The Fire Side Public House
• Village of Eastside Shopping Center (Trader Joe's, McDonald's, Tuesday Morning, Staples, China Garden Buffet)
• Aldi
• Whole Foods
• Giant Eagle
• Target
• A diverse selection of popular Pittsburgh restaurants including BRGR, Casbah, Dinette, Mad Mex, Noodlehead, Paris 66, Pamela's, Smiling Banana Leaf, Soba, Spoon, Sushi Too, Tana Ethiopian Cuisine, and more.

Hi we're Azhar (but everyone calls me Lee) and Lisa. Lisa usually handles the bookings and other communications on our listings. Our listings include an entire dome home, 1 & 2 BR apartments, and Private Rooms (please note that if you're viewing one of our "Private Room" listings, most of those are for rooms in the home we live in, which is NOT the dome house... we only very rarely offer "Private Room" rentals in the dome home, as it is usually offered only as a whole house rental). One of our listings, our Yaca-Dome, has been featured in Pittsburgh Magazine, and it may be the most unique Pittsburgh property that is offered on Airbnb. We call it "The Igloo" (take a look at the listing photos and you'll see why), and it's usually available only as a whole house rental. With 3 bedrooms, the home can accommodate up to 6 guests. The Igloo offers a relaxing, private setting while still being within the city limits and close to all the great amenities and attractions Pittsburgh has to offer. Most of the apartments we offer are located on N Negley Ave. Those apartments are on bus lines that provide easy access to Oakland and Downtown, and there's free on-street parking available on the side streets. Our apartments on Suffolk St are located a few minutes walk to a bus line that provides quick access to Allegheny General Hospital, Downtown, and a variety of shops and restaurants along McKnight Rd, but parking is not available at that property. While we occasionally offer private room rentals in the Yaca-Dome or in the 2 bedroom apartment, most of the private rooms we offer are at the home we live in. In our home, you can rent individual or multiple rooms (including one room with its own private en suite bathroom), depending on availability. Our home is conveniently located near all the amenities Pittsburgh's East End has to offer, and is less than a 10 minute walk to Bakery Square/G**gle. We are also located near a CMU and Chatham shuttle stops. And if you bring a car, plenty of free street parking and off-street parking is available. Lee has already added numerous green features to our properties, such as an in-floor radiant heating system (in the 1st floor and basement of our home), changed all the lighting to LED & CFL bulbs, installed many low flow water fixtures, etc. We plan to use part of our Airbnb earnings to add more green features. Ultimately, a Net-Zero house is Lee's goal. Thank you very much for considering us for your Pittsburgh stay, Lee & Lisa

Durant votre séjour
• Before you submit a booking request, please send a message to tell us a bit about yourself, the makeup of your traveling party (including the ages of all guests who will be under 18 years old at the beginning of your stay), and the general purpose of your trip. Like many Airbnb hosts, we prefer to know these things before we consider accepting a booking request for this home, and we're more likely to accept your request if you have a fully completed profile which includes a clear and recognizable photo of you.
• Please note that you will not be able to complete the booking process until you have verified your ID via Airbnb's Verified ID process.
• Usually it will be Lisa who answers Airbnb messages, meets you at the dome for check in, and serves as the primary contact during your stay.
• You are responsible for contacting us in advance to coordinate a mutually agreeable arrival time.
• We schedule check in times between the hours listed. Depending on the circumstances and our schedules, we may agree to schedule a later check in, but this must be requested BEFORE the booking is made.
• Please keep in mind that we will schedule our other obligations and plans for the day based on the originally agreed-upon arrival time, and plan your travel schedule accordingly. Contact us ASAP if you encounter any delays.
• If your plans change and you arrive in town earlier than the agreed-upon time, due to our other obligations we often won't be available to meet you earlier and/or may not yet have the house ready for you to check in.
• Upon arrival, be prepared to upon request present your unexpired US driver's license (or state-issued ID card, if you don't have a driver's license) or a valid passport, and all other guests 18 years of age or greater must also be prepared to provide the same.
• You can contact us any time for emergencies; please use the Airbnb messaging platform for all non-emergency questions or concerns.
• During your stay, we may occasionally stop by the property to retrieve items from the storage shed, do some yard work, collect trash, etc.
• During your stay, we will enter the home only if we have informed you in advance, if there is an emergency, or if we have reasonable belief that the House Rules or other terms of the booking may have been violated.
