Other Things to Note
Guest will help change sheets on the check out day for next guest unless check out before 8 am. I will change it. I have to leave for work at 8:30 am. The bed should be made the same as when you check in.
Absolutely no smoking or shoes in the house/room and put your shoes on downstairs. Only house slippers (not flip flop) is allowed. Please help save energy by turning off light when you are not in the room.
This is a great place to stay. Tippi has the place very well laid out and organized for guests. Things in the kitchen see labeled and easy to find. The directions and details about expectations and just "the way things work" are clear and easy to follow.
The neighborhood is safe and really not noisy for a city (except for fireworks, but it was 4th of July!) There is easy parking around the corner. There isn't s lot of traffic there, either. And it's easy to get into the downtown area or the lake. (We had a car, so. I have no idea what the public transportation is like there.)
Tippi is charming and sweet. She is easy to talk to, though not around that much.
The only considerations anyone might have with this place are: the stairs are steep so you need to be able to deal with that and there may be other guests, so you have to share a bathroom. We had no problem with either. For us, it was perfect. I would go back.
When I visited Chicago, I stayed in the purple room. The house was well kept, clean and felt like home. The blue line took us from and to O'hare airport with no problem. During our stay we went to sightsee and we had no problem getting to the city the house. While we were it, we just locked our doors and go about our days. Would recommend staying in any room at Tippi's. Also there's a Filipino breakfast spot called Uncle Mike's down the street which everyone has to try. I look forward to staying there again when I go back to Chicago.
Le logement était parfait pour faire des visites à Chicago. Une ligne de bus juste en bas de la maison qui donne directement au Navy Pier.
Tippi est une excellent hôte tout s'est très bien passé. On recommende :)
I and my wife had great time at Chicago and tippi and her house made our trip excellent. Tippi was very kind and helpful to us. Thanks to her. Recommended.!!
The house is just as described on the web page. Beautiful and clean. This house located on a main road to the downtown. The bus stop is just 20 meters away, the bus can take you directly into the downtown. It's really convenient. I stay in Tippi's house for two weeks. Tippi is very nice to all the guests. She gives a lot of advices to new visitors. If I am going to visit Chicago again, definitely Tippi's place is my first choice.
It was a great experience staying at this place. I would definitely recommend it.

About the Host, Tippi
I am from Thailand, single and work full time for 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.
