The Neighborhood

This house is situated in my favorite Champaign neighborhood, reasonably quiet and residential and yet just a block off of a major artery (Springfield Avenue) and only a few minutes walk to Westside Park and Downtown Champaign and near the UIUC campus. Many graduate students, young familys and professionals live near here.

  • I've known John for over 5 years, and have only great things to say! He is an incredible salsa dancer and thai massage therapist, and overall a very kind, funny, and friendly person. Knowledgable about world travel and wine!

    John is fun to be around, easy-going, and has always (email hidden) at his home in Champaign! You will find a very tidy and beautifully decorated house with a spacious backyard! His home is located on a quiet residential street, within walking distance of downtown Champaign where nice cafes, restaurants, and bars are available!

  • I have known John from many years, and hosted him in Chicago several times while traveling. Always glad to do so. John is very kind, brilliantly educated, well-traveled, amenable, with a positive outlook on life, and has an easy-going demeanor that makes him easy to be around. Great guest. :)
