Featured in the Oct. 2014 issue of Pittsburgh Magazine (the article "Dome away from Home" can be viewed online). This listing is for rental of 2 of the dome's 3 bedrooms, for a maximum of 4 people.

"Love Where You Sleep" with our new mattresses & pillows from the highly rated Nest Bedding.


• 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).

The 2 bedrooms offered in this listing are the dome's Master bedroom with a King bed, and a 2nd bedroom with a Full bed. We recently installed new Nest Bedding mattresses and pillows in our dome's bedrooms. Nest Bedding's motto is "Love Where You Sleep" and we do believe that our guests will love these super comfy mattresses and pillows! Nest Bedding's high quality mattresses and pillows are eco-friendly and are made to order by hand right here in the USA.

The Master bedroom is furnished with:
• King size bed with Nest Bedding's Alexander Signature Series mattress in medium firmness, 2 Nest Easy Breather pillows, and 2 regular pillows
• nightstand with lamp
• dresser with mirror
• chest of drawers
• 2 chairs
• side table with lamp
• clock radio

The 2nd bedroom is furnished with:

• side table
• narrow chest of drawers
• 2 floor lamps
• table fan

• PLEASE NOTE: There is not a TV in any of the bedrooms, but there is a large smart TV (with Comcast cable) in the living room. You must use your own account if you want to log into Netflix, Amazon video, or similar services... the cable includes HBO but is otherwise a VERY basic package.

The common areas of the dome will be shared with us &/or any other guests who are at the property during your stay. The shared common areas include:
• Living room- vintage MCM sofa and matching chair with open wood frames, coffee table and end tables, smart TV

• Free parking, in the driveway
• 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 with same day service available to noon Monday through Friday, and dry cleaning services.

• We schedule check in times between 5 PM and 9 PM. In order to coordinate a mutually agreeable check in time, we require that you inform us of your expected arrival time at least 7 days prior to arrival date (or immediately upon booking, if reservation starts in 7 days or less); this is to be done via the Airbnb messaging system.
• Unless we agree IN ADVANCE to a later arrival time, GUESTS MUST ARRIVE FOR CHECK IN BY 9 PM on the scheduled arrival date.
• If you cancel your booking, eligibility for any refund will be strictly as specified by the listed cancellation policy.
• The Guest who made the reservation must be part of the traveling party, must be present at check in, and must remain in residence throughout the reserved period.
• Airbnb policies prohibit third party bookings. What this means is that reservations for personal travel cannot be made on behalf of another person, and we will not give the keys to someone other than the Guest who booked the reservation. The only exception to this is if the booking is made by an official booker under the Airbnb for Business program, and the booking shows up as such on the itinerary.
• ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE OR ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY, and no lighting of candles, incense, or other similar items is permitted. We also do not permit the use of e-cigarettes, vaping, or smokeless tobacco in the house or on the property. Violation of this rule will result in immediate termination of your stay with no refund for unused nights, possible charges against your security deposit, and we will notify Airbnb of the violation.
• For the safety and security of our home, ourselves, and any other guests in our home, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO BRING ANYONE TO OUR HOME OR ONTO THE PROPERTY WHO IS NOT ALREADY ACCOUNTED FOR AND PAID FOR IN YOUR RESERVATION. Any visiting (regardless of whether it is with family, friends, business associates, or someone you met online or while out) must be done elsewhere. Violation of this rule will result in immediate termination of your stay with no refund for unused nights, possible charges against your security deposit, and we will notify Airbnb of the violation.
• ABSOLUTELY NO PETS ARE PERMITTED IN THE HOUSE OR ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY. Violation of this rule will result in immediate termination of your stay with no refund for unused nights, possible charges against your security deposit, and we will notify Airbnb of the violation.
• Guests are not permitted to enter the 3rd bedroom (the one that isn't included as part of the offer in this listing), the interior storage room, the outdoor storage shed, the furnace room, or anything that is locked, and are not permitted to access anything that has a "NOT FOR GUEST USE" label on it or on the place it is stored in. Guests are also not permitted to have any mail delivered to this address or to access our mailbox. Any such unauthorized access of these rooms or things will at our discretion result in our asking the guest(s) to vacate our home immediately. IF WE FEEL THAT THE SITUATION IS SEVERE ENOUGH TO WARRANT OUR NEEDING TO REQUIRE YOU/YOUR TRAVELING COMPANION TO LEAVE OUR HOME, violation of this rule will result in immediate termination of your stay with no refund for unused nights, possible charges against your security deposit, and we will notify Airbnb of the violation.
• Be courteous to other occupants.
• Quiet hours are 11 PM to 7 AM, and excessive noise is not permitted at any time.
• As a courtesy to us and any other guests in the home during your stay, clean up any messes you make in the bathroom and other common areas, and keep those areas uncluttered. Store your toiletries, shoes, clothing, and other personal items in your room when not using them, and put your food away in the cabinets or refrigerator.
• Do not remove the first aid kit from the home, and return it to the medicine cabinet in the bathroom when finished using it.

• Do not mix garbage and recyclables.
• Recyclables (including any from the living room, bedrooms, and bathroom) must be put in blue bags in the blue recycling container near the kitchen trash can. Please note that while corrugated cardboard is a recyclable item, it cannot be placed in the blue bag; it must instead be flattened (and placed between the recycling can and trash can) so it can be bundled together before we take it out.
• For trash, use the small bedroom and bathroom wastebaskets (absolutely no food waste or dirty food wrappers/containers are to be placed in these wastebaskets) or the kitchen trash can (for food waste, plastic grocery bags, Styrofoam, non-recyclable food containers, and any other non-recyclable trash).
• Appropriate recycling bags, wastebasket liners, and trash can liners must be used... don't put items into an unlined receptacle. Extra liner bags are stored in a drawer in the kitchen and/or in the hall closet.
• Turn off lights/fans/TV/coffeemaker when not using them.
• Do not turn the heat higher than 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Do not turn the air conditioning below 76 degrees Fahrenheit... also, do not turn the air conditioning to a setting that is more than 20 degrees lower than the outdoor temperature, as doing so may cause improper functioning and/or damage to the system.

• You are responsible for reimbursing the full replacement cost of any furnishings or other household items damaged as the result of any action by you or your traveling companion(s), regardless of whether such action was intentional or not.
• If any action of you or your traveling companion(s) results in damage to the home or its mechanical systems, you are responsible for the full costs of the repairs, regardless of whether such action was intentional or not.
• You are fully responsible for your own behavior and actions. You are also fully responsible for the behaviors and actions of your traveling companion(s) while on the property, and are responsible for ensuring that you and they are informed of and abide by the House Rules and any other terms and conditions included elsewhere in the listing.
• CHECK OUT TIME IS BY NO LATER THAN 11 AM. Sorry, no exceptions. If we are not present when you leave, you agree that you will check out by notifying us via text or the Airbnb messaging system to confirm that you have departed. When you leave, close the bedroom doors behind you.
• If you have not officially checked out (as outlined above) by 11:15 AM, you will be considered to have overstayed without permission, and will be subject to Airbnb's policies regarding such.

If any of the above "House Rules" or any terms in the listing are found to be legally invalid, or to be contrary to the policies of Airbnb, this shall not in any way affect the validity of the remainder of the "House Rules" and listing terms.
• DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CONTINUE PAST OUR HOME TOWARDS THE LAST HOME ON THE LANE (the home at the dead end is a private residence, and we expect you to respect the owner's privacy). Also do not in any way otherwise disturb or intrude upon the residents/premises of that property or any other homes on the lane. By making a booking, you are agreeing that you and your traveling companion will not trespass onto our neighbors' properties.

Being a resident of Pittsburgh, I had couple of friends visiting me from NYC and I decided to book Lisa & Lee's dome for a weekend as a fun/quirky staying option. Easily one of my best booking decisions in the recent past - my friends and I totally loved it! It was quite an experience to stay in the dome for a weekend - it's everything that the description says and more! I got a chance to meet Lisa and had a wonderful time talking to her about her experiences and local recommendations. Would strongly recommend!

Such an awesome place to stay, I've seen anything like it! Quiet area yet close proximity to downtown. Lisa was extremely nice, definitely a great first experience with airbnb

Fun experience to stay in the house for a night. Has everything you need and in a quiet neighborhood- but you do have to drive through a slightly sketchy neighborhood to get there.

The description of the house is completely accurate. It's very cool and surprisingly spacious. In order to get to it though, there is a bit of rough neighborhood to go through, but it's not that bad. You are about 5-10 minutes from anything you need (Whole Foods, Target, restaurants and bars). I stayed there three nights while on business and really enjoyed the space.

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
