We are an very easy going couple and we will do our best to make you happy but that does not mean we will be a concierge service to you or 24 hour complaint line :) If you require that, we kindly request you do not book with us. We have lives outside of BNB where we each work a job and also have family and friends.

Also keep in mine, this is a big city, things can be loud in the city, and you are sharing a unit with others. If you cannot follow the rules or deal with some city noise / apartment noise and are a light sleeper, we suggest ear plugs or a hotel (though a hotel still has noise).

Unlike many hosts, we will befriend you, allow you to befriend us on social networks, email, and professional networks, chat networks before the trip so we can make arrangements for your arrival. So feel free to book with confidence.

WE HAVE MORE LISTINGS AT OTHER LOCATIONS IN DOWNTOWN CHICAGO, IF YOU DO NOT FIND A DAY AVAILABILITY. TO THE RIGHT YOU CAN SEE OUR OTHER LISTINGS THAT WE OWN. WE WILL BE GLAD TO BOOK THOSE PROPERTIES AS WELL WITH YOU.

IMPORTANT REGARDIN(website hidden): YOU CANNOT SHIP MAIL HERE FREELY AS THIS IS A BIG CITY
==============================================
We will not accept your packages nor will the building. This means, if you ship something to us with out requesting our permission first it will be sent right back which means you will not be able to retrieve it. We highly recommend coordinating sending the packages to a local UPS or FEDEX store that is 2 blocks away instead.

If there are days that you like that are not available, we can book you at two places and we will provide the transportation to and from the two places.

  • This place was great and above our expectations! Amazing balcony view to experience while you have your morning coffee and plan out your day. Jessika was very kind and gave a lot of great advise and tips for 3 girls explore the city.

    The size of this room was perfect for 3 girls, even the bathroom was big enough!

    Response from Jessika:

    Ryann, we are very glad that the place met and was above your expectations. you are right that the amazing balcony views are unparalleled and you get a true Chicago feel and can really soak it all in with a good coffee or tea! There is now a grocery store nearby within 5 minutes, near all the major nightlife and restaurants, and is basically the easiest area to grab a cab since its a cab corridor, along with hopping on the CTA to grab a train or bus which is right outside the front door. We are definitely glad you enjoyed, and you are always welcome back. Thanks again for the recommendations as well.

    Cheers!

  • I was taking classes at Second City, and this was a great location. Panera was right across the street and Target with grocery store was only a couple of blocks away. A short walk from the very lively Wells Street, which is the heart of Old Town. Although several blocks from a subway station, it was right on a bus line and taxis were plentiful. The kitchen was well appointed, including mayonnaise and mustard as well as salad dressings and even an ice pack in the freezer when I needed one! The master bedroom suite was nice with a desk including computer and pretty view. Also included large bathroom and walk-in closet.

    Response from Jessika:

    Nancy thank you so much for the great review. Glad you enjoyed your stay here and enjoyed the location regarding. You are right that there are many grocery locations near by, Targets, and places to eat. The kitchen is indeed well appointed as well, the place is near the subway and major bus stations. It is also near a bike share area for the summer travelers that want to try a go at biking in Chicago :) We definitely will take your recommendations into consideration and increase the lighting since we agree a lap on the desk could help , (it was one of the things we had planned to do this summer). Thanks for also working with us regarding your checkin that day. We cannot always promise smooth checkins as we have people coming out and coming in the same days sometimes, but we try to accommodate the best we can. You were very flexible and we appreciated it dearly! You are always welcome here in Chicago, and next time you have a need ,let us know :) we'll give you also a discount if we have the availability that you need! :)

  • i found jess apartment perfect for my needs.
    I visited easily Old Town, Lincoln Park and Gold Coast - which are full of good pubs, restaurants, interesting shops, amazing things to see -, .moving by feet.
    I reached Loop, South Loop and Wrigleyfield in few minutes using the red line.
    I moved by feet also in the night, never having any problem, feeling always safe.
    The apartment is bright, with a wonderful view of Chicago Skyline, and Jess is very Kind.

  • I have stayed with these hosts before and love the location, cleanliness and privacy. Street parking is not a problem and, for those without a car, the bus is right outside the door. The hosts make accommodations to your arrival time and check out is a breeze. If you have the time, there's a small gym available.
