Interaction with Guests
We are fairly hands-off, we'll meet you when you check in, but you may not see us again after. We come by once per day to check on our cat, and guests are welcome to chat or ask us any questions when we are there or by phone/email when we're gone. Most of your interaction will be with our curious cat, Perky. You may also meet other guests staying in our 2nd bed and bath (completely separate space).

Other Things to Note

No smoking indoors. No pets (we have a cat that lives here already!) Please be friendly with other guests and clean up after yourself in the shared spaces.
Rebecca and Cameron are very welcoming to guests. But the real star of the show is Perky the wondercat. You will find yourself playing with him more than going out and exploring Chicago if you’re not careful. He even helps cook. The air conditioning is strong and the place is neat and tidy. The location is great for zipping up and down the red line or taking a walk/bus over to Andersonville/ Clark Street with nifty shops/restaurants to boast. The water pressure and temperature are superb.
El apartamento es muy lindo, cómodo y limpio al igual que la habitación. El barrio es muy tranquilo y pintoresco y esta a 20 minutos del centro en metro o en el bus 147. Rebecca y Camerón fueron muy atentos al recibirnos. Compartimos el apto con otro inquilino: Steve una persona muy agradable. Pasamos unos días fantásticos, recomendamos mucho este alojamiento.

Awesome location and awesome condo! Really close to the beach and lots of cute shops and places to eat nearby. Our hosts were super accommodating and you'll have everything you need to feel at home!
This place was simple, reliable and comfortable. The hosts were clear and the stay was everything we needed.
I would highly recommend staying at Cameron and Rebeccas. The apartment is really nice and laid out perfectly with a bedroom on each side with the common area in the middle so it feels pretty private. The bedroom and bathroom are both spacious enough so you don't feel cramped. Perky the cat is really sweet and loved hanging out with us. The neighborhood is great with lots of great bars and restaurants within a 10 minute walk (in Andersonville) through a lovely area of homes and condominiums, and the "L" is a very easy 5 min walk away.
The hosts were friendly and had everything set up for our arrival. The residence is in a nice neighborhood - we felt comfortable walking around at night.
We were welcomed by Rebecca, who was adorable and gave us plenty of tips. The room is just as pictured and Perky the cat is as cute as sweet. The apartment is located at a walking distance from the beach and from the very cool neighborhood of Andersonville (great from eats and drinks). Also, the downtown loop is easily accessible via a bus passing by at the corner of the street. We had a great stay and would happily return.

About the Host, Cameron And Rebecca
We're a couple who just returned from a trip in Europe where we picked up a fondness for BnBs.
We're educated, polite, and easy going. We can't live without coffee, vacations, and our ridiculous cat, Perky.
As hosts, we're fairly hands-off. You'll have a private suite, but we're always glad to answer questions and give tips or advice about the city and local attractions. And we're usually happy to hear stories about exciting travels.
