• 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.
• This listing's Airbnb Verified 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 have been updated, 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).

• Kitchen- 5 burner gas range w/ convection oven, side by side fridge, microwave, automatic drip coffeemaker, Bodum French press, electric kettle, toaster, waffle iron, basic cookware, dinnerware, cutlery, other assorted kitchenware, a fresh kitchen sponge, a dish towel, and potholders. Please note that the refrigerator is NOT hooked up to a water line; however, you can buy a bag of ice (or make cubes in the ice trays) and pour it into the bin of the ice maker, which then can be used to dispense cubed or crushed ice thru the door.
• Patio- outdoor dining set with 4 chairs
• Iron and ironing board (stored in closet)
• Bed linens- the pictured comforter set have been replaced with a duvet with duvet cover and matching pillow covers. The bed has 4 pillows; to minimize allergy issues, all pillows and the duvets are free of down or feathers. If additional warmth is needed, there is a blanket (blanket can be found stored in the closet during warmer months, and will usually already be placed on the bed during the colder months).
• Bath linens- for stays of 4 nights or less, we supply a set of 2 bath towels and 2 washcloths per registered guest; also provided are hand towels and a bath mat. We will provide additional bath linens for longer stays.
• We provide a starter supply of coffee, tea bags, sugar, powdered creamer, salt, pepper, coffee filters, paper towels, trash bags, recycling bags, dish soap, shampoo, body wash, liquid hand soap, and toilet paper.

If your traveling party includes a child, infant, and/or individual with mobility issues, please note:
• the home is not child proofed and there may be cleaning chemicals and other potentially hazardous household items that are not out of reach of children; the booking Guest and other adults in the group are responsible for supervising children at all times
• we do NOT provide cribs, playpens, highchairs, or any other baby gear
• we do not provide toys, games, or other items to keep children entertained
• the home's beds are pretty high; it is the responsibility of the booking Guest to determine prior to booking whether the beds are suitable for the needs of all traveling party members
• there are not grab bars in the bathroom
• the home's toilet (Kohler Rialto) is not an ADA height toilet

Please note that there are some items and areas at the property that guests are not permitted to access as they are reserved for our personal use. Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy, and for ensuring that all traveling party members (including children) also do so. The following areas and items are off limits to guests:

Please be aware that a few of the home's electrical outlets are controlled by switches. Specific information regarding the location of these switch-controlled outlets, and the switches that control them, can be found in the House Manual (which will be included on the Airbnb itinerary that is generated after you book).

• For bookings made via this listing, WE PERMIT A MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY OF 2 PEOPLE (including children and infants, regardless of their proposed sleeping arrangements). THERE ARE NO SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS IN THE LIVING ROOM. If you are booking for 2 but require separate beds, or if you are planning to have more than 2 people at the home (up to 4 guests total in the 2BR option, up 6 guests total in the 3 BR option), you must instead book using one of our other listings for the property that in addition to the Master bedroom would also includes use of one or both of the home's other 2 bedrooms. Please ask if you are interested in booking one of those options, as sometimes we don't have the listings showing but they may be available.

• All individuals who will be on the property for ANY amount of time must (regardless of their age) and are to be accounted for in the total number when you send a booking request.
• We offer our home for use only by the registered guests whose names have been provided to us and who are included in the guest count as shown on the itinerary that Airbnb generates for us once a booking is made.
• For liability reasons, we do not permit any unregistered guests to be on the property.
• No pets are permitted on the property. Our "No pets" policy is NOT negotiable.
• Please respect our right to decide how we allow our home to be used and how many people we feel our home can safely and comfortably accommodate.

Please note that there are no laundry facilities at the dome. The laundromat we recommend to our guests is The Laundry Factory; it is located on Ellsworth Avenue in Shadyside, and is a 10 minute drive from the dome. The Laundry Factory is open 7 AM to 9:30 PM daily and offers self-serve coin operated washers and dryers, drop-off laundry service, and dry cleaning services.

Otros aspectos destacables
To avoid misunderstandings and disappointment RE: pricing, please note that:
• our nightly rates vary, and accurate rates can be seen when you enter your dates and the number of guests in your traveling party
• if the date range entered qualifies for a discount based on the length-of-stay, that discount will have already been taken into account in the total quoted by the Airbnb system

If you have any questions about the rate displayed once you have entered the dates and the correct number of guests, contact us for clarification BEFORE you submit a booking request. Also, please do not submit a booking request unless your travel dates are firm and not subject to change. Once we have accepted a booking request, the only pricing adjustments or alterations that we will consider making will be requests to add nights (if available).

For the safety and security of the property, we reserve the right to install and utilize exterior security cameras to monitor the property. There will NOT be any security cameras installed or operating inside the home during a guest's booking.

PLEASE NOTE that guests are advised to bring a car, or to plan on using Lyft or Uber (which has often tended to be more reliable than the local taxi service). 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 Yaca-Dome's location as:
• Car-Dependent (score 11) "Almost all errands require a car."
• Some Transit (score 34) "A few nearby public transportation options."
• Somewhat Bikeable (score 13) "Very steep hills, minimal bike lanes."
* The above Walk Score ratings were obtained in August 11, 2018.

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, Plum Pan-Asian Kitchen, Sharp Edge Beer Emporium, 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. The private apartments we offer are located on bus lines that provide easy access to Oakland and Downtown. There is also free on-street parking available. 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

Durante tu estancia
• 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.

• 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.
