Peace, quite and laughter lives here. Come and stay I welcome you to my home.

My home has four levels which helps to offer both privacy and interaction for us all in the living room dining room and kitchen area's.

FYI, Miles Davis is my kitty cat and he loves attention. Open doors to your room is like an open invitation for him to visit. He hangs out all over the house. Please watch out for him as he has that cat thing...."why should I move"? :-). Miles Davis sometimes likes to act like an escape artist and run out the door when you do...simply being alert and a little foot block is all it takes. I'll show you if needed.

A bit about me, I'm energetic but enjoy a relaxed home. I love to travel mostly to warm weather places with water and someone to bring me a beverage or two. I found my Artistic self in the world of Jewelry. I design, create and sell my work at the summer art fairs in the city and soon online. I've created a line where I donate a portion to the fight against cancer. I work daily in Corporate America as a professional in health care. So much more I look forward to chatting when we meet.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lisa was a great host - very helpful and sweet. Her cat Miles was super friendly as well. I stayed at Lisa's place for five nights while I attended a trade show at McCormick Place. It was easy to commute to the convention center by foot and by bus, and the L was also close. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet - I would like to return to her beautiful home next time I visit Chicago!

    Response from Lisa:

    Thank You, I hope the show was successful and I hope to see you again.

  • Lisa was a wonderful host! She made sure to connect with me at every juncture, and she provided plenty of local information, like the excellent tapas restaurant a minute down the street. Her place is beautiful, quiet, and comfortable. Her cat Miles is the sweetest kitty I've ever met, too :)

  • Staying with Lisa was really great. She was a wonderful, supportive host and her place very clean and homely. It is also centrally located and hence perfect for exploring Chicago. I will surely come back to stay with Lisa again, when coming back to the windy city.

  • Great stay at Lisa's! She stayed up til 1AM to let me in since I had a night flight. She provided a bunch of materials with maps, tourist sites, and suggestions for places to eat, as well as guided me on how to use public transportation. I definitely recommend staying with Lisa (and Miles Davis, the friendly cat) when attending anything at the McCormick Place. It's so close by. I walked one day just to explore the area, and it was not a burdensome walk. It's also just *one* bus ride there. Her place is also very close to all the shopping in the downtown area, just one bus ride down. It's very convenient!!

  • Liza was an amazing host! I enjoyed meeting her and staying at her place. Not only Liza was friendly and welcoming, but she also gave me great tips about places to go to in Chicago and about navigating through the city. The place was very clean, cozy, and very convenient, close to the loop, with nice restaurants and breakfast places by walking distance, especially the tapas place Tapas Valencia and the Mexican restaurant Zapatista!
    I can't leave a review without saying a word about Liza's cat Miles! He is abslutely adorable, you have to meet Miles to understand!

  • Lisa was an incredibly gracious host, and really easy to deal with. She is very detail-oriented, and everything in her home was as described. Miles Davis is also amazing. :)

    October 2013
  • Lisa is a great host!!! She gave us many information about the city, where you can have breakfast or special Chicago meals. The house is very clean and we liked to live with her home rules. Lisa is very helpful and is looking after her guests. If you want, she is open for conversation you would like talking with her. Miles Davis is a very funny tomcat. Staying at Lisa the trip to Chicago is winning a lot. Of course I would like to stay at Lisa, when I will travel to Chicago next time. Thank you for all, Lisa!

  • My wife and I are grateful we had the opportunity to stay with Lisa. She is sweet, very helpful, and it is a pleasure to stay in her home.

    She lives in a perfect location. You can walk out her door and take public transportation to anywhere in the city. There are also a number of great places within walking distance of her home but it is quiet at night.

    Highly recommended.

Chicago is "now" called home. I've been here 10 years but miss the sunny sky in L.A.! I work in healthcare as an consultant for patients needing Hospice care. I enjoy laughing and exploring new area's. I'm a class junky and love to learn FUN things. I believe life is what we make it and I'm always making Lemonade!
