The Space

Stay in an apartment with a freshly renovated bathroom in the heart of Boystown/East Lakeview! The Belmont Red/Purple/Brown line are down the street and it is incredibly close to the Belmont express buses which can get you downtown in mere minutes.

The apartment is located close to 24/7 Walgreens which is stocked like no other. They have a great selection of wine, food and anything else you could want during your stay. In addition to that, Broadway is lined with fantastic food options such as Falafil, Five Guys, Joy's Noodles (best byob thai in the city). Coffee is also a big deal on Broadway as there is an Intelligentsia, Caribou Coffee and Starbucks right around the corner. If you are looking for a gym during your stay then look no further than the Lakeview Athletic Club which is arguable the nicest gym in Chicago with an amazing rock climbing wall.

*Queen Bed

Check In
  • James was very helpful and straightforward with everything. The location is great, only a few minutes walk from public transportation and many restaurants/bars. Overall a great place to stay for short visits to Chicago.

  • James made it very easy for us to get in early. Studio was as described. Just what we need for a nice getaway weekend in the city.

  • James was an excellent host. He was very flexible with the check in times and accomodating with my flight changes. The apartment was very clean and much larger than I expected. It was also in a very convenient area with everything I needed only a few blocks away.

  • James was easily accessible by phone to help make the check-in process go smoothly. The location of the apartment was perfect for my visit. Restaurants, bars, and public transportation were all close.

    The apartment is small and simple, but had what I needed, at a good price.

  • This is my third stay with James, and I have to say, once again, exactly what I wanted. The place was perfectly located near public trans, and lots of taxis, just south of the red-line, in a nice area of Boystown. There was a mart near by to pick-up things I needed, and lots of food and restaurants to choose from.

    The bed was comfy, the room was fully cleaned, and once again, there was coffee to be had when I woke up in the morning. James was there to check me in and made sure I had everything I could want before heading out. The room was very practical, the bed comfortable, and the place was so quiet that you wouldn't realize you were in a major neighborhood. I'd absolutely pick this one again.

  • Excellent James was very accommodating and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The location was great and the room was perfect for someone who spent most of their time walking around chicago.

  • Mr. Garcia was unfailingly helpful. The apartment is accurately described in his blurb. It is small, and probably will be a tight fit for two people. The winning aspect is its location: it is smack in front of a bus-stop. I recommend the apartment unreservedly.

  • My boyfriend and I had a wonderful weekend in Chicago! The apartment was clean and perfect for a weekend stay but the best part was definitely the location!! Boystown is situated perfectly to allow you to explore the entire city. The place is so close to the waterfront which is a must see for any tourist. It wasn't our plan but we found a Divy rack close to James' place and we ended up really taking advantage of that rentable bike system...downtown is only about a 30 minute bike ride away and you can take the bike path all down the water.

    There are tons of restaurants, bars, grocery stores, pharmacies around the area! This was my first experience with Air bnb and all I can say is that I will be exploring this site before booking at a hotel on my next trip!

  • James was very responsive and professional. The apartment was cozy and in a fantastic location. It was stocked with all the essentials and was very clean. I did not find it noisy but I am used to living in a big city (with all that entails). Recommended for when you want a quick get-a-way to the Windy City!
