We loved staying at Mara's place, It was welcoming, very clean, and spacious compared to hotel living. The neighborhood was so much fun and getting around was easy. Mara treated us to yummy homemade Lemon Bars and made some fun suggestions as to what was happening in the neighborhood. Thank you Mara for making our stay so wonderful!
What a lovely spot in a great area. She was incredibly welcoming and informed us of some cool local spots to check out. Parking was easy, and we were only a short distance away from anywhere we wanted to go. The unit was spacious and cozy. Would definitely recommend this.
Mara is a perfect host! Very thoughtful and generous, and the neighborhood and amenities are super cool!
This was our first time using Airbnb and it couldn't have been a better experience. The pictures were a perfect representation of the place and it was exactly what we needed for our trip. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever had while traveling! We loved the neighborhood as it was very family oriented. Lots of great places with in walking distance and very easy to get downtown. Mara and family were great hosts! We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a very nice, comfortable, spacious place to stay in Chicago!

About the Host, Mara
Runner, mother of two, vegetarian, lover of homemade baked goods. Honeymooned in Morocco and have traveled extensively in Central and South America. My trip to Europe was a quick jaunt to London.
We live upstairs from the apartment and would so love to help with suggesting restaurants and navigating the city. Well-versed on all the best bakeries, restaurants and coffee shops citywide.
Love living the city life with kids and taking advantage of all the great resources Chicago has to offer, especially runs with the Double BOB to the Montrose Harbor Beach on summer days.
