Great location, price, + parking

Apartment - Private room · West Armitage Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647, United States

Come stay in my cozy 2nd bedroom. The apartment is well located in Bucktown and affordable priced.

I am a huge fan of Airbnb, both as a host and a traveler. Fresh off 5 months of traveling, I'm back for my 2nd season as a host.

The Space

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. The apartment has 1 bathroom. There is free laundry on site.

There is no tv in the bedroom, but the living room has cable tv. There also is 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!

Guest Access

Guests are free to use the kitchen, bar area (free drink provided), living room with cable tv 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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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

I'm not a good cook but am trying to improve, so if you're bold then maybe I can attempt to cook for you. I am also learning Spanish.

  • Jeff's place really is in a great location for a great price. It is a 10 minute walk to the metro station and only a 10 minute ride to downtown Chicago. On the walk to the metro is Damen Street where all the restaurants and shops are. Jeff is super friendly and helpful and loves to chat about travel. He had copious maps and brochures lined up for his guests and is always willing to help with anything. thanks Jeff!

  • Jeff was a great host; he was very friendly and very helpful with maps and suggestions for everything. The place is nice and the neighborhood is a lot of fun. We had a great time!

    October 2013
  • Jeff is a laid back guy. If you like traveling and sports, you will have good conversations. But I think Jeff also knows a lot about finance.

    The neighborhood is great. The apartment is nice. You don't have windows in your room, which is great when you really want to sleep in long ;-)

    You will certainly enjoy your stay with Jeff!

  • Though the bedroom is small, the bed was comfortable. It is very quit in a nice neighbourhood. Jeff was a great host. He is a nice guy, very welcoming and helpful.

    October 2013
  • Jeff is very knowledgeable about the area and a very welcoming host. He knows all of what you need to get around the city. I can definitely recommend staying with Jeff. His place is easy to get to, easy to find. If you need a place for sleep and that's in a good bucktown/wicker park location for your needs, look no further.

  • Très bonne adresse à Chicago. Jeff est un hôte très accueillant et sympathique, nous avons beaucoup apprécié nos petites conversations autour d'un verre. La chambre est petite mais confortable, la salle de bains et la cuisine toujours disponibles, le quartier très calme.

  • Jeff is a great guy, always willing to help and share stories!! We stayed with him for a week and everything went really well! The location is really great, and as he stated the room is little but if you are looking for a nice bed this is definitely a very nice (and cheap) option!
