About this listing
68+ Positive Reviews! Quiet neighborhood that's a 10 minute walk to a train stop. 15 minute drive to Midway airport. Free parking & close to the highway. Apt is very clean & comfortable!!
Plenty of FREE street parking is available on our block.
This is the first floor of our home so we expect all guests to be QUIET & respectful. If you love to party, stomp around and yell then this is not the place for you. No parties, no loud music & no stumbling in drunk at 2 am. We are old & boring and do not want to be disturbed.
This apt is very big and had a has a lot of natural sunlight. Located on the first floor of our building. We live upstairs in a completely separate apt so we are very close if you have any questions or concerns, but your privacy is assured.
It is a 1 bedroom apartment with a queen size bed, full kitchen with utensils and cookware, full bathroom with tub and linens, living room with full sized sleeper couch and dining. We have a queen sized air mattress as well that sleeps two if needed.
So to recap the sleeping situations-
A. Private bedroom sleeps two people on a queen sized real bed. (2 adults)
B. Living room has a couch that turns into a full sized bed but I personally recommend that you sleep on the couch and don't pull out the bed. The couch is extremely comfortable and very wide. So unless you're really tall, this would be where I would sleep if I were you. (1 average height adult)
C. Another couch in the living room (1 average adult)
C. Lastly, we have a brand new super comfy queen sized air mattress that self inflates in a matter of minutes. That queen can sleep two people & will fit in the dining room or living room. (2 adults)
D. Total- 6 adults
I also have a pack & play which is a travel crib for babies about 2 years and under. Not sure what the official restrictions are on it but if you're a parent you probably know if you kid is too big for a pack & play.

Many grocery stores are within walking distance of the apartment. Breakfast or meals aren't included in the price. Many restaurants in the area deliver.
A gas grill is available for your use in the back yard. Backyard also has a patio set if you wish to dine al fresco.
The apt has central heat and window unit air conditioner in the bedroom. A second AC unit was recently added to the dining room.
The apartment is near downtown Chicago with an easy 25-30 minute train ride into the Loop. We are located within walking distance of the 35th/Archer Orange Line subway station that goes to the Loop and Midway Airport. We are close to US Cellular Field where the Chicago White Sox play. We aren't very far from McCormick Place or the South Loop which has many famous museums. Neighborhood next door is Pilsen which is rich in Mexican culture, amazing food and lots of art galleries.
