"ala" David Lettermans....Here are the TOP REASONS why you should stay at our Chicago Loft

1. FREE PARKING: Most Chicago hotels are now charging $50 PER NIGHT to park a car. We have two secure parking spots included in the price!
2. HUGE SPACE: The loft can accomodate 4 people, each couple in their own bedroom and using their own bathroom. No need to worry about sharing a tiny room with double beds and using the same bathroom....
3. GOURMET KITCHEN... fully stocked.
4. FREE WIFI: Chicago hotels can charge up to $20 a day just to stay connected.
5. NO Taxes, NO Resort Fees, NO hidded Charges what so ever!
6. HOWEVER, THE VERY TOP REASON TO STAY IN OUR CHICAGO LOFT ( and the reason why Airbnb even exists ) is: PRICE !! Our Loft provides an incredible value to our guests.

Our rates vary based on time of year ( please visit our calander for exact costs ) Even at our hightest rate of $200.00 and dividing this by 4 guests.....comes out to $50 per person, per night.
YOU CAN'T BEAT THIS!! This is a GREAT PRICE to stay in an Luxury Loft in the Heart of Chicago. We encourage you to shop around and promise that you too will see that our Loft truly stands out... not only on the cost, but what you get for this cost.
Why else use Airbnb???

I live in the city of Chicago, Illinois in the Wrigleyville/Lakeview neighborhood. First and foremost. we are 4 blocks from Historic Wrigley field and all the night life surrounding the stadium. We are exactly 1 block from a CTA Brown-line/Red-line "el" stop which provides easy access to Downtown/Loop or neighborhoods north/south of us for $2.25. We are .5 mile from the Michigan Lake front perfect for jogging or laying out in the Sun. My Neighborhood is young, vibrant and safe,. It is surrounded by lots of restaurants, bars, neighborhood shops and boutiques. The Vic, The Apollo Theater, The Blue Man Group and the Music Box Theatres are all located within 1 to 7 blocks from the Loft.

WALK TO: Wrigley Field (The Cubs Stadium ) My Loft is at 3200 block of Sheffield Ave and Wrigley Field’s Bleacher entrance is at 3600 block of Sheffield Ave. (Only 4 blocks – 6 minute walk) Although we are close to all the action, the condo is very quiet.

All guests will have fresh linens and fresh towels as well as their own toiletries set out; Complimentary coffee will also be provided during your stay.
If you are new to Chicago, I can leave a list of all of my favorite places as suggestions for you to visit, dine and see, both on and off the beaten path. After living in this beautiful city for 12 years, I have discovered some unique places- I think you will find it as amazing as I do, regardless of the season. Our Loft is a GEM in the heart of the city!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great apartment well equipped and convenient location very close to Belmont for the trains to downtown. Very nicely furnished.

    July 2014
  • Jay and Elisa's house is (website hidden) parents had a wonderful stay in their wonderful place. They are also so sweet to consider and accommodate all our needs. Definitely recommend their place if you visit Chicago!

    June 2014
  • What a fantastic place! The listing gave me high expectations and I wasn't disappointed. It's a beautiful apartment with everything you need for a really relaxing and fun stay in Chicago.

    Super-convenient location (3 minutes away from the L train, which is then 10 minutes away from downtown), in a really fun neighbourhood (awesome bars, Wrigley Field, etc) - there really is nothing to fault about it. Strongly recommended.

  • We stayed at this lovely apartment for 5 nights in May 2014. This was the most fantastic place for our first visit to Chicago. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very well equipped.
    The booking process was easy for us. Jay replied promptly to any inquiries, & left a detailed list of instructions about the apartment that we found very helpful. We did not get the chance to meet Jay or Elisa due to a delayed flight into Chicago but Jay contacted us on our arrival & also during our stay to ensure we had all that we needed.
    Wrigleyville is a lovely location. Close to shops & restaurants & short walk to the lake. It was really convenient being so close to Belmont station on the L.
    Our first few days were rainy & windy so it was great to have a relaxing, comfortable place to come back to when the weather got the better of us.
    Also we loved Chicago. What a fabulous city. We really enjoyed biking along the lake & kayaking on the river. Already thinking about when we can return.

  • Terrific loft in Wrigleyville. The loft looks exactly like the pictures, which is always nice when renting. They did a good job of representing each room. We loved the jacuzzi tub, the nice tall shower in the Master. Plus we sat on the balcony out front and took in the evening each night.

    Very nice kitchen with Keurig (and K cups). It is perfect if you want to cook your own meals, although we were on vacation so we skipped that and enjoyed all the great restaurants that were within walking distance of the condo. The L was literally 2 blocks and a breeze to use. Plus Wrigley was an easy 4 blocks away.

    Communication with Jay and Elisa was great. No big complaints from our family (which consisted of 2 adults + 1 teen). It is a 3 story walk up (so if you can't use stairs this should be noted), but I didn't mind (except when toting luggage). The front lock sticks and is a pain, but after a few tries it always works. We had trouble the first day of someone parking in Jay's spots, but he got it cleared up quickly. The master was missing one of the main blinds on the sliding glass door so it was a little exposed, but it wasn't a big deal.

    It was a great stay, I would recommend it without hesitation and stay again! Perfect location, beautiful loft.

    June 2014
    Response from Jay&Elisa:

    Thanks for the recommendations. We Have sent the blind in over a month ago and still have not had it returned to us. We apologize for that. I will try the WD-40 to see if it helps. Thanks for input!!

  • We (husband, wife & two teenage sons) really enjoyed Jay & Elisa's loft. We walked to Wrigley Field and some great restaurants while there. The loft looks exactly like the photos. One of the best things was how close we were to the Belmont line. Having a washer/dryer in the loft was really nice. The stairs were a workout, but it made us feel like we were burning off some of those calories we were eating. My son was happy there was a gym next door so he could work out while we were on vacation (if you're into that kind of thing - the rest of us not so much). The only downside (which really wasn't a big deal) was the sun was shining in brightly at 5:30 am and we could hear neighborhood noises during the night (we are from a very quiet suburban area so I'm sure it may not seem noisy to others). We walked around the corner to Walgreen's and bought a $15 box fan for white noise and problem solved. We had the pleasure of meeting Jay who was very friendly. We didn't need to call him for anything while there, but he was very open to us contacting him if we needed to. I highly recommend staying here if you have the chance.

  • This was my 1st experience booking through Airbnb, and I am so [;eased! We had a terrific time staying in Jay & Elisa's loft in Wrigleyville! They were both so accommodating and prompt with their communication.

    There are so many pros to staying at Jay & Elisa's loft including the decor, the location, and the amenities. After long days of sightseeing it was terrific to come back to a place that felt like home. We cooked out on the grill, tried out the jacuzzi tub, watched TV via uVerse and even did laundry. We love when we can do laundry so we can travel light.

    There are so many terrific restaurants within walking distance, as well as fun shops, a Whole Foods, and the metro stop.

    The only cons wouldn't keep me from staying with Jay & Elisa again, but they included: the loft is a three floor walk-up, the front door lock takes some patience :), and the washer and dryer have, well, personality to them. LOL.

    You really can't go wrong staying here, and the next time I visit Chicago I hope the loft is available again. Thanks again Jay & Elisa!

  • We stayed at Jay & Elisa's condo for a girls weekend getaway and had the best time! Jay & Elisa were so friendly and easy to engage with! Their condo is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need! Perfect location to get around and see the city and super close to transit. We absolutely loved Chicago and everything about our stay. We will definitely be back to stay again!

    May 2014
  • Fantastic condo and neighborhood. Would definitely come back again!

    May 2014
  • My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Jay & Elisa's awesome Chicago loft. They were very helpful with any questions we had, as we had never visited the beautiful city of Chicago before. The loft appears just as pictured, so we were very pleased and excited to stay there, as well as it really gave us a real taste of city life. Their loft is in a great location and conveniently located to a variety of places to shop and eat, and just a short walk to the L (We found the cities public transportation very easy to use to get around Chicago and to its many attractions-we hardly ever used our rental car). We loved our stay at the loft and would highly recommend it to our family and friends!
