I have an available room in my Bucktown apartment. It is well located and affordably priced.
The apartment is located in the excellent neighborhood of Bucktown, close to Wicker Park. There are lots of restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutique shops in the area.
There are many transportation options and a parking space is included.
The available bedroom is small but has a Queen-sized bed that comfortably sleeps two. I sleep in the other bedroom, although occasionally it is rented. The apartment has 1 bathroom. There is free laundry on site. The neighbors above can occasionally be heard.
There is no tv in the bedroom, but the living room has basic cable tv, Netflix, Hulu plus, and WiFi. Clean linens and towels are provided. In the morning coffee, orange juice, toast, and cereal are available. I have maps, guidebooks, and other information about Chicago.
I have traveled a lot in the last few years and used airbnb many times as a guest. I know what travelers want and hope to be a better host based on my great experiences with other hosts!
Guests are free to use the kitchen, bar area, living room with cable tv, Netflix, and wifi internet, outside deck with a gas grill, on site laundry, and a parking spot. You may come and go at any time during your stay.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy spending time with my guests when our schedules permit. However, I realize that not all guests want to socialize so I will respect your privacy.
Bucktown is a great neighborhood! There are lots of restaurants, cafés, bars, live music venues, and boutiques shops. Wicker Park is very close.
I have lived in several Chicago neighborhoods and this is my favorite one.
One of the best things about the area is the excellent transportation!
Train: CTA blue line is a 12 minute walk (Damen station) and gets downtown in 15 minutes or to OHare airport in 40 minutes. The Metra train is also close and can take you downtown quickly.
Bus: Several convenient bus routes stop at the nearest corner.
Highway: Interstate 90/94 is 10 minutes away. A parking spot is included.
Bicycle: There are also bicycles for rent nearby from Chicago´s bike sharing program
Other Things to Note
There aren't many rules; just be respectful of the space. No smoking inside.
This was perfect! Convenient to the city with easy access to transit. Jeff was really nice, meeting me when I arrived and immediately making me feel welcome.
Jeff was a great host - super friendly, provided coffee, breakfast and any amenities we needed. The room was as advertised - clean and cosy with a comfy bed. The area is the absolute best - my favourite part of Chicago - loads of restaurants, cafes, shops and walking distance to the trainline. Highly recommended!
Jeff was a great host! They (His girlfriend and him) were very nice and friendly. Jeff had prepared maps of places to go in Chicago as well as a guidebook for your travel planning. His place is very accessible to public transportation. Highly recommended for couples or anyone travelling alone.
우리가 Jeff의 집 앞에 도착했을 때, 그가 먼저 문을 열어 반겨주었다. 그는 크리스마스를 보내기 위해 떠날 준비를 하고 있었다. 그는 우리에게 필요한 물품과 정보를 모두 친절하게 알려주었다. 그는 자신의 집을 우리의 집처럼 여기라고 당부했다. 집은 생각보다 넓고 아늑했으며, 모든 공간은 정말 깨끗하고 정리가 잘 되어있었다. 집의 위치 또한 지하철 역에서 얼마 멀지 않은 곳에 있다. 특히 Jeff는 우리에게 Chicago의 지도와 관련 도서를 내어주며 주변 관광지와 좋은 음식점을 친절히 설명해주었다. 그는 우리가 머무는 동안 집에 없었지만, 그는 최고의 호스트라고 말하고 싶다!
Bucktown and Wickerpark are amazing neighborhoods with great bars and restaurants. It was easy to find his place with busses and trains running all the time.
Unfortunately I only got to meet Jeff and his girlfriend very briefly, but they were very warm and cool people. You felt very welcome in his house.
I would defintely recommend people to stay at his place
We spent 3 great days in Chicago. Jeff is a very friendly host, he makes you feel at home! The bedroom was really nice too and the apartment very comfy! The neighborhood is great, away from the crowd of downtown yet only 10min away by subway. A lot of bars and restaurants nearby, Jeff will recommend things off the grid, and that's what we enjoy the most! We'll definitely go to Jeff's next time we are in Chicago!
