The Space

We're the hidden gem located on a quiet street between the bustle of Wrigleyville and Boystown. Our humble home - built in 1890 is the garden unit of a restored Lake View vintage greystone building. Walk to all local amenities, transportation, the beach, shops, cafes, restaurants and nightlife. Two double bedrooms and a full stone bath make this completely modernized space perfect for 1-4 people.

Interaction with Guests

Upon arrival you can expect an initial greeting, key exchange and introduction to the space and surrounding area. Other than responding to your requests, guests can expect minimal contact from me.

The Neighborhood

I love that Chicago landmarked this block of Newport Avenue to preserve its architectural significance as representative of high quality working class dwellings completed in the 1890's. Today, Newport Avenue and its big city surroundings are a vibrant example of what a diverse community of many cultures can be.

I am happy to make suggestions and use my resources to help you find what you're looking for to make your stay informed and memorable.
