The space

This is a small room located in the back of the house in a reasonably safe neighborhood with a restaurant and a neighborhood bar at the kitty-corner. It takes about 5 min. to drive to downtown. There is a bus in front of the house to Michigan Ave. and Navy Pier in 15 - 20 minutes, 3 stops on train to loop with 5 blocks walking to train station. Bed with memory foam mattress. Use of living room with wall mount LCD with Netflix and cable, kitchen/pot/pan/utensils and wireless internet with a shared bathroom. I provide sheets, towel with hair dryer in the room. There is also soap, shampoo and conditioner in bathroom. Plenty of parking on Grand avenue with restriction and on Wood street with no restriction.

One thing I would like to point it out is my neighbor's dog barks every time someone/car passes by his house in the alley so bring ear plug. I also has a white noise machine in the room 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.

Guest access

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.

The neighborhood

West town is a recently growing neighborhood. It is close to downtown but it is not as congested. It's a safe neighborhood with 4 stars restaurant Breakfast House and a neighborhood bar Output Lounge 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.

Getting around

There is a bus to Michigan Ave/Navy Pier in front the house and train station is 0.7 mile away to Millennium park.

Grocery store Mariano's is 0.6 mile away. It also has prepared food that is very reasonable price.

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.

Your Host



Chicago, Illinois, United States · Joined in August 2011

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.
