This house was renovated in 2010, everything is brand new! The house has 3 bedrooms. The first is the master bedroom with a queen size bed and a private bathroom with jacuzzi tub, the second has a full size bed, and the third has two twin size beds. There is an additional 2nd bathroom upstairs for all guests to use. The bedrooms have a lot of natural light, and high vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and ceiling fans with a remote for the light switch.
There are hardwood floors throughout the house, and everything is decorated very neutral. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room with cable and a blueray player, and there are built in surround sound speakers in the ceiling of the first floor. There is a great gas fireplace that just requires the flip of the switch. The kitchen is large, perfect for entertaining and there are all the pots/pans/blender etc needed to cook a great meal. There is a built in booth with a flat screen tv for use, and a gas Weber grill and a small charcoal grill on the back patio.
No need to look for Chicago street parking here. The home has a driveway that can accomodate 3 cars. Have a glass of wine on the front porch or a beer on the back patio with firepit for your enjoyment. A tree was recently cut down so there is plenty of firewood to use for your party. The home sits on a double lot, which gives you and your group plenty of space for activies in the yard.
The home features cable and wireless internet , a necessity to us these days and there is a washer and dryer for your use upstairs. All sheets and towels are provided for you so there is no need to bring your own. This would be a pefect place for someone who needs temporary housing while relocating, or a perfect place for a short vacation to come and explore the city.
Home features the famous "Moustache Mirror", try it out, take photo, and send to your friends!
The blue line train is the nearest stop and it'll take you straight downtown or to ohare airport. If you are driving, this is a good location because it is near 90/94 to get in or out of the city very easily. If you're planning on going to a Cubs game or spending time in Wrigleyville, the house is a two minute walk from Addison ave, you can hop on a bus there and go straight down the road to the bars, stadium, restaurants, etc. Chicago is a very easy city to drive, and can get to the magnificant mile in 20 minutes.

The Rules of the house are simple. Treat it with respect and treat it like its your own. No smoking in the house, no illegal drugs, and please clean up after yourself. :) When you finazlie your rental with me, I will send you a word document that explains rules of the house, washing machine, dishwasher, how to turn on the tv, internet password, and then also great places to eat and shop in the area.
Julie's house had everything we needed for our Chicago trip. The house is specious, very clean, clutter free, nicely designed. Kitchen is huge and great for cooking. Appreciated the driveway to park our rental car, the high speed internet. Julie was very responsive to any questions I had before and during our stay. We would be staying again.
I will The house was everything we could have ever needed, we enjoyed cooking family dinners, eating at a wonderful dining room table, my older children enjoyed the privacy of their own rooms and all the amenities they have at home. We have already recommended your listing for our out of town friends and family for when they come to town to visit.
I cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you again.
Excelente escolha em chicago. Casa muito espacosa e aconchegante.
Anfitriã atenciosa e gentil.
This was our first AirBnB experience and it was excellent. We had our family Christmas here, and it was a terrific setting for family, cooking, and even setting up a cute little Christmas tree. The layout is fantastic, with a huge kitchen and ample room and closets. Julie was very helpful in our planning and responsive to our questions. If we do Christmas in Chicago again, we will be returning!
Really enjoyed staying here, the house is awsome and has everything that you need. I would come stay here again if I ever come back to Chicago
The house was really great! True to the photos. Nice and quiet neighborhood! Overall great experience!
Julie's house was great! We stayed for a quick trip in Chicago for work, and it was a wonderful place to come "home" to after a long day, and easy to "work from home" Very comfortable and spacious with all necessities available and more.... only wish it was warm enough to enjoy the fire place outside and the porch! (however, can't complain about the fire place inside....) Julie was an exceptional host, very communicative and easy to get in touch with. I would recommend this place to anyone (although it is a bit far from downtown) We will definitely be coming here again on our next trip to Chicago!

Hello! My name is Julie. Welcome to my airbnb page for my home. I built this home a couple of years ago and have loved every second of designing it. This last year my work gave me the opportunity to work on a project in Amsterdam and I decided to rent my home on airbnb while I'm away enjoying my new European lifestyle! Since I used to normally live in the home full time, there is everything you can possibly need from pots/pans to spices, towels, linens, etc.
I am looking for renters that can care about my home as much as I do, which means to treat it with respect. If you are in Chicago, it's probably for a vacation and I expect you to have fun, just please do it responsibly.
If you are interested in renting my home please remember it is a 3 night minimum. I will not rent to those who have not filled out alll of their verifications so please remember to do so. I'm sure you will love my home as much as I do. Please feel free to reach out ot me with any questions you may have about the property.
