The Space

Our fabulous 3 bedroom home in a converted warehouse on Halsted street between North Avenue and Division Street. It’s roughly halfway between the highway and Lake Shore Drive, 2 blocks from the Red Line to downtown or the north side, and equal distance from the North and Division buses that run to Wicker Park and Bucktown.

Why choose us?
*Three Queen (double) beds
*No need to turn the living room into a bedroom!*
*Two full bathrooms (one with a shower/bath combo, the other a walk in shower)

Amazing gourmet kitchen - seriously - this is an amazing kitchen - if you are a foodie or your vacation involves everyone gathering around the granite island making dinner together - there is no better space around than ours.
*Free WiFi
*Great restaurants & shopping nearby
*Great transportation to everywhere
*Friendly, experienced vacation rental owners

This part of Lincoln Park is a great location for those who drive in, since there is still free street parking but since we’re mostly surrounded by loft office buildings, parking during the weekend is very easy - though it is also quite easy to reach by public transportation from either O'hare or Midway.

This newly renovated 2nd floor loft sleeps 2 – 10 guests. The master bedroom sleeps 2 in a Queen bed and 1 guests in a twin bed. The second bedroom sleeps 2 in a Queen bed and 1 in a twin bed. The third bedroom has a Queen bed for 2 guests Our beds are super comfortable Sealy Posturepedic beds - bought in 2013 for use in this apartment. The living room sofa converts to a daybed for 1 or 2 guests, and we can provide a crib and a child's bed for up to 2 extra children.

There are two full bathrooms – one with a walk in shower, the other with a combination bath and shower.

Our fantastic chef's kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need to create a quick breakfast or a gourmet feast. Featuring a Garland commercial oven, Sub Zero refrigeration and Miele dishwasher.

Our Home on Halsted is conveniently located to both the highway and Lake Shore Drive and we have a north south bus line at our doorstep, two east west bus lines just steps north or south and the Red Line subway just two blocks north. Of course it's possible that you may not need to venture anywhere you'll need transportation, since walking distance from us you'll find not only the city's largest Whole Foods Market, but also the Chicago's Little Michigan Avenue with shops like Sephora, Banana Republic, Victoria's Secret, J. Crew, Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, Nordstrom's Rack (opening soon), Express, the Gap, West Elm, and more ... and it's also a mecca for theater goers and foodies: We're home to Steppenwolf Theater and the Royal George, and dining options include the Michelin star foodie favorites Alinea and Boca, as well as more down to earth options like SoNo Woodfired Pizza, Uncle Julios Hacienda, Vinci, King Crab, Goose Island Brewery and Japonais.

If exploring the city's diverse neighborhoods is your thing, we're at the crossroads of bus lines that can get you just about anywhere: Halsted street to the south takes you to our favorite: Greektown; and then to Little Italy and Pilsen; North Avenue to the east takes you to Old Town and the Gold Coast (also just a 10 15 minute walk); Division street to the west takes you into Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village, while North Avenue west lands you in Bucktown and the Halsted bus to the north takes you to Lakeview and Boystown.

If you have other questions about our home, feel free to ask. If you would like to reserve, you can do so via this site but we also have a separate reservation form we ask guests to sign which will be sent to you once you've booked here. (Our homes in Athens Greece are mostly booked via the site that starts with Trip and ends with Advisor and you'll also find a lot of reviews about us there under Athens Greece 3 bedroom Acropolis View Apartments, that's a good place to look if you want to know more about us since we don't do a lot in Greece with airbnb site.

SPECIAL NOTE: We prefer a 3 night stay but will accept 2 night stays with a surcharge.

We're looking forward to hosting you in our Chicago home soon!
