(IF YOU ARE TRAVELING WITH NO LUGGAGE or traveling with your clothes in a garbage bag ....DON'T BOOK HERE. You will not be accepted in. I don't accept Chicagoans and this is not a hotel.)

SECURITY:
In the entire city of Chicago, there are over 550 known gangs thruout the city as reported by the Chicago Police Superintendent. If you are not familiar with ANY area of Chicago, you can literally be just a block away from bad area within a 'good' area. So there is crime literally everywhere. The only assurance that I can relate to you is that I live within one (1) block to 3 blocks of TWO (2) police stations. On my own block, there is a police training station....just down a block north from my home...AND...THREE (3) blocks west of my home there is a brand new police station. So at ANY given time, you will see several police patrols going up and down the street, to and from the station. There is only so much precaution a traveller can take, but its always nice to know that protection is just AT the corner. So be safe! For those who need additional security, feel free to take advantage of my night time free shuttle from the nearest train stop!

PLEASE NOTE: I will admit, there are better areas in Chicago but none will be as memorable as your stay here! If you are looking for a posh, well-to-do area, DO NOT BOOK HERE! hehehe This is an urban inner city community that has undergone nice redevelopment due to the brand new college recently built (but has some work to be done). I live near a beautiful massive park with a full running track, community center /swimming and children's playground.

There is a cat located on premise, however, he is not allowed in the main living area of the house. Please feel free to ask me any questions. I'm here at your disposal.

The Neighborhood

This is an urban inner city community that is undergoing some nice redevelopment due to the brand new $21 million new college recently built.

You can also enjoy renting DIVI bikes at the train station.

At ANY given time, you will see several police patrols going up and down the street, to and from the station.

House Rules

1) No Smoking inside.

2) Do not bring police on my property at all.

You will receive direct information after confirmation as to how to get to my home using the bus line directly across the street and exactly what and how to enter my property gate for self-check in. If you decide to avoid my information and take it upon yourself to come on your own terms, while getting lost, thats fine to. But if you should be escorted to my property with the assistance of the 'police', you will not be let in or on my property. My house is surrounded by cameras to keep the police OFF my property and anyone seen with them.
