About this listing
Welcome! My sun-filled apartment is steps away from Humboldt Park, and walking distance to Wicker Park, Bucktown, and Logan Square. You’ll stay in our cozy guest bedroom that comfortably fits two. I love to introduce people to this wonderful city!
Welcome to my bright and cheery apartment! Full of vintage furniture, plants, and charming touches, you'll feel right at home. There's a beautiful back deck overlooking a grassy backyard; perfect for summer relaxing.
You have a private bedroom with a queen bed, mirror, 3-drawer dresser, and a closet. The bathroom is shared, and has a free washer/dryer if you need to do laundry. Feel free to relax in the living room, check out my craft area, or cook in the kitchen! There's also a lovely back deck and backyard where you can BBQ in the summer while watching the sun set. Free parking spot just for you in the back! I have a lock box set up, so check-in time is very flexible.
Interaction with Guests
I am Merissa! I have a day job, but I'm usually around in the evenings. I love to cook, dance, explore, and hang out with friends in my spare time.
I will always respect my guests' privacy. If you're up for it, I'd love to show visitors around town, as I enjoy "touring" my own city too!
Humboldt park is a beautifully diverse and growing neighborhood. New art galleries, coffee shops and boutiques are popping up everywhere! Humboldt Park itself is one of the largest, most beautiful parks in Chicago, and the heart of the neighborhood. I live on a quiet tree-lined street, but very close to many enticing options for restaurants, bars, or a music. I can give you recommendations!
The Western-O'hare blue line train station is a 10 minute walk away, and can take you to Logan Square, downtown, or to O'Hare Airport. Wicker Park/Bucktown is a 10 minute walk (or 5 minute bus) away. There's a Divvy bike share rack a couple of blocks away.
Other Things to Note
I have the sweetest pet bunny named Hurricane. He's friendly and fun.
From 7/3 - 7/6, I will be out of town and the entire apartment is available for rent. There are two bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed. Four people would be comfortable.
Please try to clean up after yourselves.
Merissa was awesome. She was incredibly accommodating even though she was out of town for most of our stay, checking up on us and asking if we needed any recommendations for places to go. Her place is beautifully decorated, and the neighborhood is quiet and chill. Hurricane is the best and cutest bunny ever! As our first Airbnb host, Merissa has certainly set the bar high.
Good place to stay in Chicago. Merissa is a great host, she gave us directions, advice and a guide of the interesting places in the neighborhood. She is so kind, always trying to make us feel like home, and, at the same time, she gave us all the privacy we needed. Her pet, Hurricane, is the best, always looking for his vegetables.
The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures, only minor changes in the furniture, nicely decorated and clean. Many welcoming details at our arrival.
The neighborhood is safe and quiet, the only problem is that, to get to downtown, you have to walk a while to the subway station, or combine a bus and a subway. No matter what you choose, it'll take 30 or 40 minutes to arrive at downtown.
We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable and attentive host. Merissa keeps a clean, cozy, and well furnished home. Interacting with her friendly pet bunny Hurricane was an added bonus. I highly recommend staying with Merissa!

Our stay at Merissa's was perfect ! The room is nice and comfy as well as the apartment, located in a very nice neighborhood. But the best part is about Merissa : she was the perfect host, so friendly, helpful and caring (amenities in room and kitchen and a whole list of things to do in her neighborhood). She's a very nice person and it was a pleasure being her guests ! And Hurricane is the sweetest bunny on earth !
Great place, very nice quarter. Merissa is kind and easy going. She respect her hosts privacy but still very available to give recommendations - which were delightful.

About the Host, Merissa
I'm from NYC, went to college in Atlanta, and now I'm in Chicago! I love to travel, try new things, and be exposed to different cultures. I spend my free time making up silly dance moves, baking cakes, and being crafty. I really enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to this city that I love!
