OTHER INFORMATION:
Here are some suggestions and requests that should make your stay as comfortable as possible: You will notice that the location is the best between being close to the city and being in a quiet residential neighborhood. The CTA Brownline Paulina Station is just minutes away, the No. 11 Bus even closer. Whole Foods Market is the preferred upscale source for nourishments and the best fruits and vegetables for the discriminating taste. Jewel Foods is about 4 blocks south between Paulina and Ashland. There are several bars and restaurants in walking distance, feel free to inquire about recommendations.
You will find our beds comfortable, with hotel grade mattresses and 100% cotton linens, there are additional blankets and covers available for the asking. Please try to take care of the furniture and rugs and artwork, this is not a low-grade motel, the surroundings are appointed like a private home., as indeed, it is my home. There are no oak floors and oriental rugs at Motel 6.

NON-SMOKING, no dogs or cats please.

Also, our company manufactures 3in1Dead Sea skin care products, you will find some free samples for your use or take them with you. If you are interested in purchasing some, let us know.

  • We met with Andy who is not the host but he checks you in - he was easy to organize and allowed us to check in early. He also was easy to contact and very responsive on any questions we had over text. All in all the place was good, we had a group of 6 people and it met our needs. The place is a bit scruffy but the bedrooms and living area are good and it is very close to transport and restaurants in the Roscoe Village neighborhood.

  • Great experience! We went for a girls weekend/college reunion and had a wonderful time. The main floor has two queen beds and a nice big couch in the seating area, and the basement studio apartment has a queen and a fold out couch. We had 7 girls so we all bunked up and one person slept on the upstairs couch. Location was excellent, close to shops, restaurants, and the metro/L train. There was some confusion 1-2 weeks ahead of time with the host regarding whether we had actually made the reservation, but it all worked out and he was great.

  • Conrad's apartment was a dream. It was larger than expected and very clean and comfortable. It's nestled in a beautiful and very safe neighborhood with many places to walk to and easy access to the el.

    Conrad himself was very easy to coordinate checking in and out with. He lives upstairs but leaves you to your own devices and respects your privacy. We did not see him much at all, except when we ran out of something during our stay - a quick call to Conrad and he came right down with more! The moments that we did share with him showed us that he knew a lot about the neighborhood and that he was full of helpful recommendations on where to visit, where to eat.

    I would absolutely stay here again.

  • Unfortunately we had way too many issues with Conrad. I will list the issues that we had but in regards to Conrad's attitute throughout the entire time I can only say that he was unapologetic and even hostile. Basically a bully.
    1) We rented a 2 bedroom place + downstairs studio (for 7 people).
    The studio was overbooked so 3 people had to find accommodation somewhere else at our own expense, thus the cost for the 4 people who stayed went up. So negative savings for anyone, us who stayed had to pay more per person and the ones who left had to pay for a hotel. Overbooking happened as Conrad uses mora than one website to promote his properties.
    2) Keys to enter the apartment itself never worked, we gave him notice since the first night that we were unable to access the apartment, Conrad told me more than 2 possible explanations of why this was happening though towards the end of our trip he tried to blame it on us.
    3) Second night in the place, we walked in throughthe back door (since keys never worked) and there was a lady (who was not part of our party, she was staying upstairs from us) using our bathroom. Needless to say that the whole experience was extremely scary as we didn't know at first who was there in our apartment to the point that we were ready to call 911, for all we knew it could have been a thief or something worse. Conrad was unapologetic the next day we talked about that and said that those things happen everywhere. By the way, he also told us that overbooking happens with hotels and airlines so basically we were just unlucky.
    4) He offered to refund me $115 for the inconvenience of not having the studio available for us WHILE he was charging $265 to the people who actually were able to keep the studio, as they booked the studio (email hidden) at a higher price, so he found an opportunity to arbitrage us. Unfortunately for him, I don't let people pushing me around, so I gave him a piece of my mind and he refunded me $150 at the end. The issue was never the money, it was his abuse.

    Perhaps we were just unlucky with Conrad, maybe he was having a bad weekend.

    Havings said that though, the apartment itself is great, the location is also great and the city is amazing. If you could rent the place and never have to deal with Conrad or overbooking issues I bet you would have a blast, otherwise be ready to stand up for yourself.

  • Nice area, clean house with good beds and functional kitchen at ground floor. Basement was a bit cold and damp, but a heater was available. Good access to Internet.

  • We booked this place for my sister's bachelorette party and it was PERFECT! There was nine of us girls and it was so spacious. The place is so nice and clean and I would definitely book with this host again. Definitely 5 stars!!

  • First of all, Malcolm is not the owner of the house, so the profile on this posting does not match the person that you deal with at the home. Secondly, you deal with both Malcolm and Konrad for this listing, and apparently, they don't communicate very well to each other. We had a horrible experience with the email communication with them. They provided vague answers to our questions and were very angry when we asked for specific answers and wanted to make us wrong. They are not fit for this business because in their mind, the customer is wrong and a pain in the neck. We spent a lot of unnecessary hours both in our communication with Malcolm/Konrad and Airbnb because of issues with communication with our reservation. The house is fine. It DOES NOT sleep 9. We had 9 people, and three slept on the floor. If you have 4 couples and one single, one would still need to sleep on a couch. Konrad was hostile and made our entire group of nine feel uncomfortable during our stay. I cannot recommend this listing.

  • Being from Chicago, I always look for good places to stay in awesome neighborhoods and this was one of them. The place has plenty of space, plenty beds and is just in an awesome location. I highly recommend this rental!

  • The house was in a great location with lots of food and places to grab a beer within walking distance. The house had tons of room and we enjoyed a few beers out in the backyard at night. Malcom was super flexible on timing of check in and the stay went exactly as planned. Overall great trip, would definitely stay here again!
