A very clean and brand new condominium in West Bucktown with plenty of light. We live one block away from the Western stop on the Blue Line "L". We are well travelled, friendly and easy going. We live in a quiet and conveniently located neighborhood.

At the moment, we have two available bedrooms with large closets, a desk, a night stand and one full size bed in each room. The two bedrooms together will be perfect accommodation for a party of four guests. When booking both rooms together, we offer a 5% discount.

You'll be using your private bathroom where you'll find soap, body gel, shampoo clean towels and a hairdryer.

Smoking is not allowed in the unit, but feel free to use our balcony or the deck outside.

There is plenty of free parking on the street, and if you are flying into the city, the Blue Line will bring you directly from O'Hare airport to the unit. Three more stops on the train will take you to the Loop for business or recreation in about 15 minutes. If you are arriving from Midway airport on the Orange Line, it will take you around 35 minutes to arrive to your booked room.

You'll enjoy multiple dining options, stores, music venues, parks, a public and free swimming pool (Halstein Park) and other amenities in the neighborhood. Wicker Park is within walking distance (10 minutes) through the neighborhood.

If you are coming late at night, please be respectful. We love music, but we won't be bothering you with our favorite kind, and would like to ask you to do the same. Please use your headphones!

We don't have cable, but guests enjoy wifi access as well as streaming Netflix movies without additional cost.

We'll offer you complementary coffee or tea, juice and bagels in the morning. All lines and towels are also included.

Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and common areas as seen in the pictures. Please feel free to use the stove, kitchenware, utensils, microwave, coffee maker, juicer and toaster. We'd like to ask you to clean up after yourself in the kitchen.

We can only take seriously requests from users with a completed profile. Please tell us about yourself.
We are looking forward to hosting you!

  • Elisa's place is very confortable and clean. The area is one of the best in Chicago and the apartment is just two blocks far from the blue line. Elisa is a great host! She's very respectful and helpful with every thing you need...and the most important thing: she's very funny and definitely a good friend! Highly recommended for those who seek good place+good people+good neighbourhood all in one

  • We spent a great stay at Elisa's home, it was clean and very comfortable. She is very helpful and interesting, she likes sharing moments with her guests, that is very appreciable. We felt like at home, she makes us at ease, we highly recommend Elisa, thank you again and see you soon in France maybe!

  • Elisa was a gracious host who was flexible and understanding of our travel delays. The bed was very very comfortable. We also were graced with a neighbor's cheesy Mexican music (the kind you would expect in a touristy Mexican restaurant) but it didn't last long and there were earplugs if we needed them. The bathroom is not private, but shared with the other AirBNB guest room -- we didn't ever have to wait to use it, but it would have been nice to be able to leave our toiletries there rather than carting them back and forth. Very close to the Blue Line and Elisa gave us great food suggestions (Irazu & Big Star). Enjoyed walking around the neighborhood between Western and Damen, and down the Ukrainian Village as well -- we enjoyed living near "real people" rather than all the tourists.

  • Elisa gave us her own bedroom because the smaller room we would have had was being used by friends. Anything we asked for, she quickly provided. The room and bathroom were beautiful and spotless. The proximity to downtown Chicago and to be subway were amazing. We went back and forth 3 times and fell in love with Chicago and all the city has to offer. We will go back and we will stay in touch with Elisa and wish her every good thing that life has to offer. Thank you so much, Elisa!

  • Elisa was a nice host, available to answer questions and was flexible. It was our first time using Airbnb and it was a good experience! Thank you so much!

  • Elisa es una persona encantadora y amigable, y nos aconsejo lugares para conocer. El unico inconveniente que nosotros vimos es que compartes baño con otra gente, (quizas entendimos mal al elegir el alojamiento) y como somos un matrimonio de mediana edad, no nos ha gustado mucho. El apartamento es muy comodo y uno se siente como en casa. La distancia al centro es nada!!!!
    Gracias Elisa y que disfrutes tu viaje!!! Alessandro y Silvia

  • Elisa was a great host ; available to answer questions or address issues when needed ; discrete early in the morning or when time to stay quiet and relax , and a good coach to plan daily schedule and find interesting activities. We enjoyed ! Thank you very much Elisa

  • Our trip to Chicago was an opportunity to experiment for the first time, AirBnB. We are fully satisfied. Elisa has sublimated our stay. We were prepared that Chicago is a great destination. We we were not prepared to meet someone extraordinary. We are so far enriched by this journey, but also the meeting with Elisa. We really miss Chicago, Elisa also.

  • Elisa was a wonderful host! She was very attentive and went out of her way to make guests feel welcome. She was extremely helpful with any question I had, constantly going above and beyond host duties. The apartment is as seen in the pictures - absolutely beautiful! Definitely would recommend staying here in the future.

  • Every single thing about this place, the host, and how she treats you is 1st class!!! This was our 2nd experience using Airbnd and it was awesome!
    The place is exactly as it appears in the photos on her profile. Elisa is a wonderful, considerate, and trusting person and we have no complaints at all about our stay! She kept in touch with us before we arrived there. Showed us around once we got here, and made certain we had everything we needed. The only draw back was we would have really enjoyed a chance to "hang out" with her during our stay. She had other plans that took her away and we missed an opportunity to get to know a quality person a bit better!!
    The next time we "get away" we will make our plans around her calendar so we can stay at her place again! If you are planning a trip to the Chicago area, you'll be missing out on a very great experience if you don't stay at her place!!!
