Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes or cleaning fees on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.
When your group rents more than one room, I can send you a special offer that reflects the number of rooms and guests.
All the payments are safely made with credit card to Airbnb when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.
Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through AirBnB. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.
DEPOSIT is for keys and damage and will be refunded by AirBnb once keys are returned and the room inspected.

*Please remove your shoes at the entrance and take them to your room. We do not walk with shoes in the home. (for noise control and keep the floor clean.)

*Only toilet paper goes in the toilet. Not ladies pads or tampons, no dental floss...
Leave the bathroom clean after yourself.
*If you are staying on our second floor and using the white bathroom, please be kind and use the 1st floor bathroom after 10:30pm. ( most guests sleep at that time)
The white bathroom shares walls with 2 other guests rooms and it creates a real big echo noise when flushing the toilet or showering at night. so, between 10;30pm and 6:30 am, please go downstairs to the 1st floor bathroom. Thank you for your consideration. :)
*You must be very quiet and use your whispering voice after 9;30pm OR when you arrive late at night- since others will be sleeping at that time.
I just want all of us and all my guests to have a good night sleep so they enjoy their next day of activity. I think that's fair and considerate. :)
***if you need to call someone in the middle of night, please use your whisper voice and use your headphones.
* If you are coming back late at night from your outing, please whisper only and walk gently to your room. Thank you.
*Please wash and dry the dishes and put them away in the cupboard.Thank you.
*Ask permission for everything ! That will be appreciated!
*This is a lively home stay during the day and very peaceful and very quiet at night.
*No drinking alcohol in your rooms or anywhere in the home. People tend to lose their senses and get loud when they drink as well as behave in ways they usually do not.
***Just common sense rules to make sure everyone has a pleasant experience :)
Have great time in Chicago! *-*
*We will be here the help you with anything you'll need! :)
Vered is the best host ever! Beautiful location, quiet, clean, and welcoming. Vered goes the distance to make sure that all can be assured of a peaceful rest, even with a full house. She was super friendly and interesting, and Oak Park itself was a beautiful destination to explore.
The house and host were very welcoming. Good neighborhood close to part of the Oak Park "downtown" area. Likely within walking distance, but took the car most places for the weekend. Street parking but a very quiet street so no concern there. The host Vered is very gracious and does not intrude on your privacy, but is also very engaging. Had a great 1st AirBnB experience!
A lovely house in a beautiful neighborhood! Vered was so kind and welcoming. The room was spotless. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Simply put, Vered is a GREAT host. Her home is beautiful, very clean and in a nice neighborhood. Accommodations were perfect for my quick trip to Chicago and I will definitely return for future extended stays. Vered is friendly, kind and most obviously a caring person. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Beautiful neighborhood. Spotlessly clean house. Quiet room with really comfortable bed. Friendly and welcoming host. What more could you want?
We really enjoyed our stay with Vered! Not only is she a lovely person, she's also really interesting and a pleasure to get to know.
