We are an very easy going couple and we will do our best to make you happy but that does not mean we will be a concierge service to you or 24 hour complaint line :) If you require that, we kindly request you do not book with us. We have lives outside of BNB where we each work a job and also have family and friends.

Also keep in mine, this is a big city, things can be loud in the city, and you are sharing a unit with others. If you cannot follow the rules or deal with some city noise / apartment noise and are a light sleeper, we suggest ear plugs or a hotel (though a hotel still has noise).

Unlike many hosts, we will befriend you, allow you to befriend us on social networks, email, and professional networks, chat networks before the trip so we can make arrangements for your arrival. So feel free to book with confidence.

The Neighborhood

RIVER NORTH - The neighborhood is really the best location if you want a great night life , a great area, great restaurants, and shows.

Getting Around

It's a cab corridor so getting access to a cab is easy. It also is near all the major bus stops and CTA stations in the city. It's basically the best area for nightlife in the city. Parking is not easy to come by unfortunately and costs anywhere from 35 to 45 a night.

Getting from the airport is really easy. You can get to the condo by taking a taxi, you can take the blue or orange lines within 45 minutes to the condo depending on traffic.

Other Things to Note

Parking is hard to come by here, so you will need to go to Spot Hero and reserve parking or be prepared to pay daily rates in parking lots.

Chicago, Illinois, United States · Member since September 2011

We love living in Chicago, as we have lived here all our lives and believe that it is the best city on earth. We have several places here in Chicago, some in the near northside, some in the loop and downtown, and some near McCormick place. All the places have one thing in common, and that is our ability to cater to the needs of our guests since they are all in close proximity to each other. We both work in downtown, have jobs during the day, and live the city life by night. We love to provide guidance to anyone coming into Chicago!

We have also traveled to destination such as Jamaica, Spain and Greece, Canada, Mexico, and every where that has some great culture. We intend on using Airbnb ourselves to go to Italy and some other locations in the next couple of months. We have utilized Airbnb for our stays in other states as well with great success as well recently.

NOTE: We are not a concierge service, we do not cook for you or provide you continental breakfasts. If you are looking for that, seek a hotel, these are homes and we have lives outside of Airbnb. This is a funny site you can refer to if you want to know who we will host and who we will not host.

Who we wish to not host : YOU [

Our life motto is : One Door Closes Another One Opens (we love to meet new people)

We love to network, and are truely business savvy individuals, work with non-profits and charities through our business and we are truely professional. We will be a great host to you and/or your travel companion/stay companion. If you have any questions about Chicago or anything at all, feel free to contact us. We love to establish communication because as we all know, communication is key to success in anything, Including Travel! We will be your friends and your family in Chicago, though we might not get to experience the town as you might or have time that to go with you or be there to experience your adventures, we always love to hear about great/bad experiences so we can always help our future guests as we consider everyone equal and we want EVERYONE to experience the great parts of Chicago!


WE LIKE THE BOOK THE FOLLOWING GUESTS :
======================================
We expect all guests to treat our places like a home, not like a hotel. People need to be cleanly, throw our their own garbage, clean after their cooking, and respect our home.

All who come with a positive attitude and respect for our home; and we affirm that nationality, race, age, religion and sexual orientation are no issue. We have booked over 1500 guests over the past couple years and we have never turned anyone away or cancelled on anyone.

Things that we like to do includes

1. Go to concerts, classic rock, rock, dubstep, alternative, anything that is good!

2. We love to eat, and eat out. We know where the great places in Chicago are, so def. ask

3. We love to make new friends and learn about new cultures.

4. We know where all the nightlife spots are and where all the day tourism spots are so definitely ask if you need some recommendations

5. We are both within 5 minutes of Chicago 99 percent of the time. We are within 15 minutes in response on the phone, email, text, , etc ;) If we are not, we have at least 4 friends and family that well trained for all property management and checkin / checkout process that can assist us.

6. We are down to earth, we make mistakes just like everyone, we are not perfect, we are easy to make friends with :)
