This place is in an ideal location for any visitor! The Gold Coast neighborhood is known for the best shopping in Chicago: the Magnificent Mile and Water Tower Place. The Museum of Contemporary Art is right there as well. And the condo is surrounded by tasty eateries, bars, and cafes. The nightlife of Division and Rush Streets is minutes away too! The beach is within walking distance with a scenic lake front jogging/bike path. The lounge at the Hancock Tower a few blocks east offers arguably the best view of the city.
The owners live in the immediate area and will be on hand if needed. It will be a pleasure to host you here!
Guests have private access to the whole apartment. There are no shared rooms.
Interaction with Guests
I find that every guest is different in his or her preference for contact. I will meet you in person to give you the keys. I like to text or message with guests throughout their stay to make sure everything is OK. Often I am available if you want a guide or a lunch buddy! I welcome all questions during your stay; do not hesitate to get in touch. If you forgot something, I might have it! If something is not right, I will do my best to fix it while you're here!
The Gold Coast neighborhood is known for its tree lined streets, fantastic architecture, and great shopping. There are many fabulous restaurants and hip night life spots all around this beautiful and safe neighborhood.
Public transportation is everywhere! The Red, Brown, and Purple lines are about a 5 minute walk away. The LaSalle bus stops right at the front door and the Clark, Division, State, and Chicago buses are all within a couple blocks too. It is so easy to get to the Loop (city center); you can even walk in about 20 minutes. There is no parking included and street parking is scarce in the neighborhood. However, there are multiple garages within two blocks of the apartment.
Other Things to Note
As part of the requirements for rental insurance, you will be asked to sign a sublease agreement to cover your stay. This can be sent by email before your arrival if you wish to view it.
Put simply: be respectful and leave everything as you found it.

NO SMOKING inside the apartment or anywhere inside of the building. Evidence of smoking will cause a loss of the deposit.

If you need to take out the trash it must be securely tied in a plastic bag (I have provided many) and placed in the hallway trash chute.
Any damage must be paid in full.

Katelyn was prompt in answering any questions - and requests - and made my first experience using Airbnb an worry-free and enjoyable one. Anyone looking to stay in the Gold Coast area would be hard-pressed to find a better host or accommodations.
After a phone call to Katelyn on our way from the airport, she was expecting us at the appartment, and showed us everything. Her place was exactly like on the photos, ans so was its description. We spent there a very comfortable 4-days stay, making good use of the perfect location for city explorers. Close to almost everything, with convenient public transportation, and about 30 mn from O'Hare, this comfortable retreat could not be better. A big thanks to you Katelyn !
Great apartment, great location! Very accommodating and very helpful management.
We had an excellent visit . Katelyn adjusted her schedule to be able to welcome us upon our arrival. The lodging was pleasant,very clean, comfortable, quiet and spacey for 2 persons. . There was plenty of water. It was easy to get to the center of Chicago. THe weather was very cold ; inside was nicely warm;
I would come back with pleasure
The apartment was quiet and clean, the perfect place to unwind after busy days in the city. Katelyn was very helpful and flexible, meeting us to give us the key after our flight arrived. We were happy with our choice and would stay their again.
I'm a singer-songwriter and cellist. I love a good, hoppy beer and stand up comedy shows. I have a BA from Columbia College Chicago and an MA from Dublin City University. My favorite movies include The Fifth Element and The Big Lebowski among many more.
Travel is a passion of mine, and I love meeting other world travelers. As a guest I am very easy going, respectful, and low maintenance. As a host I stay out of your way while still being available if you need anything. It would be a pleasure to host you at my place and help you out in any way possible.
