  • We wanted a clean, relaxing, conveniently located place to crash for one night before moving across the (website hidden) and Tun's private nook in leafy Ravenswood fit the bill!

    CC and Tun were responsive, excellent communicators, and the we were very comfortable in their space. The giant spa-like shower was perfect after our long day of manual labor. I'd highly recommend their place to tourists, residents, or folks just passing through.

  • CC and Tun have an excellent space, located within walking distance to the Lincoln Square and Andersonville neighborhoods (where there's never a shortage of things to do). The space looks exactly like the photos; clean, organized and spacious. The private bath was a big bonus.

    I felt welcomed and comfortable during my stay, and would definitely book again!

  • Very nice room and great hosts! The hosts thought of everything, there's a little fridge, microwave, tv, towels, extra-cover and water in the room. The separate entrance and bathroom was very convenient and we had a great time there! Also, there's good korean restaurants in the neighborhoud for the foodies!

  • (email hidden) to stay! CC and Tun were kind, hospitable, and friendly, and their beautiful space helped us to have a lovely time in Chicago even in the midst of a stressful conference and delayed international flights. They even recommended a great nearby late-night Korean restaurant which was perfect after Nico arrived at O'Hare 12 hours later than expected. The location is easily accessible and we loved the beautifully designed bathroom and the clean, cozy, and elegant room. Thanks for a great experience in Chicago!

We love to show travelers around Chicago as much as we like to travel. When Tun isn't teaching at a public school and CC isn't editing and writing magazine articles, we're rock climbing or eating our way through the city. Together, we've been to over 45 countries and lived in five. 他會說漢語, y ella habla español, if you need a translator. Come stay in our urban oasis!
