**Hi! Please message me first about your trip and your travel dates before making a reservation so we can sort things out! Also, if you have a special situation or want to request a different type of rate, let me know, maybe we can work something out depending on timing. Thank you!
Our 2 bedroom 2 bath condo is located in Humboldt Park on the border of Ukrainian Village. We love our bright airy peaceful space! We're on the 3rd floor (walk up) of a three flat building.
Amenities include: hardwood floors, high ceilings, a bright spacious living room, HD cable, wireless internet, central heat and AC, kitchen, laundry, jacuzzi tub, room darkening shades in bedrooms, a deck off the master bedroom, and a private roof deck.
The master bedroom has a queen bed and large bathroom, and the second bedroom has a full size bed (it's a high quality, very comfortable thick futon with a thick featherbed mattress on top of that!). Each bedroom has clean white sheets and towels. We don't have any closet hanging or drawer space, but we do have luggage racks.
Street parking is safe and easy on our street, it's always available, and we have parking permits you can use during your stay. The CTA bus is 2 blocks away that will take you down to the loop, or anywhere around the city. We are not within (easy) walking distance of the subway. Or, you can walk around to the many neighborhood restaurants, bars, and shops within blocks of our home.
Our place is very peaceful and quiet. The neighbors are quiet and we only rent to people who are looking for a peaceful place to relax and use as a home base while exploring the city. This is a great option for grandparents coming into town to visit a new baby, or visit family nearby without having to stay on an air mattress! No entertaining, no parties (whatsoever!) at our place.
We prefer to rent to 1 or 2 people, and the max is 4. We can only rent to adults at this time, because of noise for the neighbors. Quiet older kids or teens with adults may be fine.
Get in touch if you're interested, and let me know what your situation is!
Guests have access to everything except for cabinets labeled "private". These are closets, bathroom drawers, and some kitchen cabinets.
We interact as much as you'd like. We won't be in town for your visit, but are available by phone call, text or email any time. We would like to know that you made it safely, and when you checked out!
We love our neighborhood! It's very walkable and close to two different busses, and there are rental bike stations within a few blocks as well. We have tons of great restaurants, bars and one of the best music venues in the city!
We are a few blocks from the Division bus and the Chicago bus. Both will take you downtown, or to the L.
Interaction with Guests
I don't interact very much, I manage this from California so everything is self serve. I will tell you where the lock box is, and I have very detailed instructions for how to work everything, etc. If you need help, I am always available via phone, text, or email.
