The Space

Note: Please do not inquire to this listing if you plan on getting crazy drunk while out or in our home while visiting.

New top floor condo in a three story building with private room and private bath available. We're located 90 minutes by train from O'Hare and Midway airports. Our guest room is bright and features a ceiling fan as well as a PILLOW TOP QUEEN BED. Towels, shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, hairdryer, sheets and pillows are at your disposal and more blankets are available upon request. You will have your OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM. No sharing with strangers! Unlike several listings on Airbnb, our condo is truly what you see in the pictures. We REALLY ARE clean and caring, as we actually live here!

LGBT friendly!!

We are located in diverse Rogers Park only a three minute walk to the "EL" (public elevated train) and a two minute walk to the beach and three parks along Lake Michigan. Free street parking is available on most of the surrounding streets. Parking during the weekdays and on Saturdays is usually very easy; conversely difficult at night and on Sundays. Please make sure to park on or north of our block overnight. Enjoy your time taking in the unique restaurants, movie theater and antique shops that are peppered around the neighborhood. Spend your day at the beach or walking along the beautiful lake shore path. If downtown is your fancy, take a 40 minute scenic "EL" ride right past the historic Aragon Ballroom and Wrigley Field, or a 35 minute bus ride down famous and beautiful Lake Shore Drive.

If you like, get to know our three cats: Butters (black and white, male), Bebe (tortoise shell, female) and Ming (calico, female). Please be careful around Ming, our newest addition as she is adjusting to her new life and can her mood can be unpredictable. Butters and especially Bebe are cool cats and touchable.

Breakfast is NOT provided, but coffee and tea are provided UPON REQUEST. Don is a coffee drinker with a French press and Lindsay is a loose leaf tea lover and would love to share a pot of tea with you! Just let them know what time you will be up in the morning, and your coffee/tea will be waiting for you.

There will ALWAYS be a host and three cats waiting to chat with you about your experiences or provide a peaceful space to rest.
