Interaction with Guests
I live here but mostly keep to myself...a quiet and friendly introvert,for sure! sometimes i will bake and have bread/muffins/or sweet treats for guests.ALWAYS have coffee or tea on hand for you.happy to guide you to all that Chicago has to offer during your stay or to leave you be and discover on your own.
Being a shared space, you will also have the potential to interact with other guests if you choose to do so!

Stephanie was very easy to communicate with for arriving and departing. She was very welcoming and made me feel very at home. Her house has an amazing location in a gorgeous neighborhood with easy access to the heart of Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village. Also, two very playful kittens. Would recommend staying at urban oasis in a heartbeat!
To stay at Stephanie's apartment in the warming days of spring is an ideal way to see (and eat) your way through Chicago. She lives on a beautiful, tree-framed block a short walk from Division Street, Damen Avenue, and their attendant transport links. Everything felt within reach.
Photos #9-10 in the gallery show the bedroom just outside of the beautiful main space. It's private, warm, and perfect for a single traveler who wants to focus on work. And while it was separated from the living room, the shared bathroom, and the kitchen, it wasn't isolating; Stephanie was consistently available to answer questions, offer recommendations, and talk through plans.
Staying with Stephanie was great. She was a perfect host, made me feel entirely comfortable in her home, and gave me access to all the comforts and amenities her house has to offer (including the two darling kittens). Stephanie's house is gorgeous and comfy, is located in a perfect neighborhood, about 10 minute walk from the El and smack dab in the middle of some really great bars and restaurants. I would stay at Stephanie's again in a heartbeat.
Stephanie's place is just as described and as seen in the photos. Her artistic style is evident throughout her home. It's a beautiful walk along Hoyne to the Blue line, but if you don't feel like walking, the 65 is just around the corner on Damen/Thomas and stops right at the Blue line station. I got a 3-day CTA pass and it was super easy to get around. I was here for a conference downtown and found it was a quick cab ride on late evenings (after sessions and/or networking socials). Staying with Stephanie and her adorable feline co-hosts helped this introvert unwind from the hustle and bustle of conference craziness and downtown crowds. Thank you so much!
Stephanie was an extremely welcoming host and made us feel right at home! The space was exactly what we expected. On top of a beautiful, exquisitely decorated home, she provided us with spot-on recommendations for brunch, lunch, dinner, and drinks. The apartment is in the perfect location for exploring the Wicker Park/Ukrainian Village neighborhoods.
I had a fantastic (albeit hectic!) three days sightseeing in Chicago. Stephanie is a really lovely host and her place is fabulous. Great if you don't want to stay downtown. It's a pretty cool area, a lot of great food close by, quirky shops and eastern european delis. I stayed in the small room which was perfect for me. It has super cozy bed. Stephanie is really welcoming and made me feel quite at home, and organising arrival times etc. was a breeze. I'd definitely stay with her again.

About the Host, Stephanie
creative Chicago native with an amazing space to share. been hosting via Airbnb for well over 3 yrs now and absolutely love it. an avid traveler myself, i very much enjoy meeting new people and helping guests get the most out of their time here as I have been in my own travels.
On a hiatus from interior design consulting,.. I am an artist and a quiet extrovert.
This space is a very special home with a serene and peaceful quality about it that happens to be in the center of the Wicker Park/Ukrainian village happenings. I love it here and thus far, most everyone who has stayed does as well!!
