Apartment is on the second floor of a vintage building that is located in the Uptown Neighborhood (4800 North, off of Lake Shore Drive).Unusually large apartment - plenty of private places to hang, read, relax. Private room with twin bed is bright and overlooks the front porch.The addition of a 48" desk and a mirrored vanity in December 2013 has created a bedroom with plenty of storage space for belongings big and small as well as a comfortable place to study or work. The room has its own air conditioner unit, space heater and humidifier. High-speed wireless. Share the bathroom with the owner (I promise to keep it clean). Share apartment with Scout the dog.( He has become the highlight of the stay for some of the guests and contributes to the homey feel of the stay with his excited welcomes and funny antics.)
Plenty of sheets, towels, blankets, pillows.
Guests have full access to the kitchen (and everything in it), dining room, bathroom and living room plus front and back porch. Also, the laundry facilities are in the basement and access to the laundry room is also included. My bedroom and office are off-limits.
Interaction with guests
I will be present throughout the guest's stay in 99% of the cases. I have been known to go away for a day or two but it is not on a regular basis. My interaction with guests vary depending on the guest. I've gone sightseeing, out to dinner, on car rides, grocery shopping with some and others, we are like ships passing in the night. It is based on how long the guest is staying, reason for the stay and interests. I am always available and very willing to assist in any way I can.
Other things to note
I've hosted guests from 2 nights to 6 months.

I am an easy going, flexible host.I want my guests to feel comfortable to ask for my help when needed and to feel at home. I let my guests do their own thing unless they need my assistance. I work at a non-profit as the Manager of Volunteer Relations. I've traveled all over the world and love the idea of hosting other travelers. My travel experiences range from staying in First Class hotels to BB's or homestays. I've lived in the same apartment for over 20 years and feel comfortable in helping visitors with things to do in Chicago.
