About this listing
I own this 2 stories with a garden apartment building. I listed the 3 bedrooms with a shared bathroom on second floor on airbnb. I live on the first floor with my niece and her husband.
This is a small room located in the front of the house on Grand avenue which is a main street so there will be traffic noise. West Town is an up and coming neighborhood with a few restaurants and a neighborhood bars nearby. It takes about 5 min. drive to downtown. There is a bus in front of the house to Navy Pier about 3 miles in 15 minutes and 3 stops on train to loop with 5 blocks walking to train station. Bed with memory foam mattress with a small desk in the room. Use of shared common area - living room with wall mount LCD with Netflix and cable, kitchen/pot/pan/utensils and wireless internet with a shared bathroom. Plenty of parking on Grand avenue with restriction and on Wood street with no restriction. I have a white noise machine you can use. Entry to the house is a keyless lock (I provide a code using last 4 number of your phone in airbnb) so no problem arriving late.
All common area in the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I volunteer at a Thai temple so I'll be in and out a lot but I will try to at least meet you when you check in. You can text or simply call me if need to.
West town is a recently growing neighborhood. It is close to downtown but it is not as congested. It's also a safe neighborhood with 4 stars restaurant and a neighborhood bar with burger lunch special at $8 located just across the street. If you walk a block east on Grand, Uncle Mike's Place is featured on NBC as one of the best Breakfast place in Chicago. Further down on East Grand, there are quite a few Italian, Sushi/Thai, American restaurants and neighborhood bars along the road.
There is a bus to Michigan Ave/Navy Pier in front the house and train station to downtown 0.7 mile away.
Other Things to Note
I may ask guest help change sheets on the check out day for next guest if I have to take off before you check out.
Absolutely no smoking or shoes in the house. This includes take your shoes from your room and put them on downstairs. Only house slippers (no flip flop, socks is perfect) is allowed. Please help keep bathroom sink/tub and kitchen clean after use, save energy by turning off light when not in the room.
I am from Thailand, single and retired from one of the top consulting firm. I am an easy going, friendly person. I like to scuba, golf, cooking, baking, movies or watch TV at home. I love to meet people, make new friend and Airbnb is one of the great way to do that. That is why I rent out the 2nd floor apartment in my building.
