The Space

Our spacious duplex apartment is one of the most unique spaces in Chicago. Before this was an apartment, it was a community center for the neighborhood! The upstairs (where your bedroom is located) is a spacious two- bedroom apartment with an open floor plan. Some features include a dramatic vintage built in mirror, comfy sectional couch, formal dining room and very high ceilings. Your cozy bedroom is at the back of the apartment and comfortably fits two guests. You are located right next to the kitchen, bathroom and washer and dryer. Downstairs is an artist's studio with an open floor plan with a bathroom and an office. We use this space for performances, parties, events and rehearsals.

Interaction with Guests

We are super fun, social and flexible hosts who welcome diversity and all kinds of lifestyles. We love getting to know new people and we are happy to help you however we can.

Because we are both actors, our schedules are sporadic. Joel is home during afternoons, Laura is home late evenings. Sometimes we will both be gone all day. We always make sure to share our schedules with each guest when they stay with us.

When we are home, you will most likely see us in the kitchen cooking. If you are a guest wishing to use our kitchen for your own cooking, please be aware that this is a shared space.

Our bedroom is located on the opposite side of the apartment so you will have lots of privacy and space to yourself at night.

The Neighborhood

We welcome guests who are open to staying in an urban environment. Our neighborhood is one of the most racially diverse in the city offering a mixture of different languages, foods and cultures. During the day you will hear lots of city noises: dogs barking, kids playing. However at night, it is very quiet.

We live down the street from Humboldt Park, one of the most beautiful parks in Chicago. Filled with natural habitats and Chicago landmarks like the old horse stables and boathouse pavilion, it's beautiful to walk around any time of year. While walking through the neighborhood, you may spot murals that date back to the 1970s. These murals tell stories about the history of the community.

We are a 15 minute walk or 5 minute Bus Ride to Wicker Park 6 corners and Logan Square, the hippest neighborhoods in Chicago. They are great neighborhoods to go for restaurants, nightlife, art galleries, theaters, music venues and thrift shopping.

Getting Around

-15 minute walk to Blue Line, "Western" or "Damen" stop.
-5 minute bus ride to Blue Line, "Western" or "Damen" stop.
-O'Hare Airport: 40 minutes via Blue Line.
-Midway Airport: 1 hour 30 minutes via Orange Line and transfers to Red Line then North Avenue Bus
-Rental Bikes: Divvy Bike Station is a 5 minute walk. (Biking is so much fun in our neighborhood)
-Rental Cars: Zip Car Lot is a 5 minute walk.

Other Things to Note

*We just adopted a sweet little dog named Buddy. He's a small/medium sized terrier/Australian Shepard mix. He is very mild mannered and doesn't bark at all. He's pretty shy and keeps to himself. You will love him as much as we do. Your bedroom is pet free.

*If you are interested in staying with us, but need a different check in or check out time, there is room for flexibility given our availability.

*We often have theater rehearsals in our living room or events downstairs. We will always ASK you first before we schedule the event. All guests are invited to events and rehearsals!

Thanks for checking us out!
