This is a quiet family oriented area. .Most residents here are very friendly and civilized. Two Chicago police officers happen to live on this block for years too. Driving is highly recommend because there are no coffee house or shopping within walking distance. This area was considered a "suburb" before acquired by the City of Chicago.
CTA buses and trains are within walking distance. Please research their routes online. This year, most of the CTA vehicles are GPS equipped and you can check the route info in your phone via mobile apps too.
I would suggest to get a car or get a taxi if you plan to have lots of luggage.
Orderly behavior expected.
No loud music or wild parties.
No illegal activities allowed. Two Chicago Police Officers are your neighbors so please enjoy your stay safely and peacefully.
No smoking permitted inside or outside the house.
Please wash the dishes/ pots /pan after use.
Government-issued photo identification and a credit card or cash deposit may be required at check-in for incidental charges.
I went with my family (of 6 ppl) and we had 3 bedrooms which was what I was looking for and Jackie's place fit my requirements. She was very helpful right from the start and was very prompt in replying to my messages. Bottled, refrigerated drinking water was ready when we entered the apartment along with other snacks kept in the fridge, which was awesome :) Thanks Jackie
Great home, quiet neighborhood, convenient. No complaints
The house was clean and while simply appointed IT was comfortable. The street was a little busy but quieted down before IT got too late. The washroom, kitchen and other facilities were clean and usable.
The house is a convenient drive from The Loop and makes for a convenient and accessible base from which to explore the city.
The beds were comfortable and the hot water more than plentiful. All in all a comfortable stay.
Il quartiere era tranquillissimo anche se non vicino alla fermata della metropolitana (1km a piedi).
Gli ospiti sono stati molto disponibili: hot spot portatile, cellulare per le chiamate sul territorio nazionale e cibo e bevande nel frigorifero.
Biancheria pulita, si in camera che in bagno.
La casa avrebbe bisogno di essere sistemata in alcuni dettagli: la porta d'ingresso non si chiude e non si apre, bisogna fare vari tentativi, rischiando di lasciare la porta aperta o di non riuscire ad entrare....qualche piccolo lavoretto di sistemazione in bagno, per il resto il livello è accettabile.
Jackie was a great host. She was prompt with answers to our questions and really friendly. It was a nice touch that she had some things in the fridge for us when we arrived.
The neighborhood was a bit scary looking when we first checked in (around midnight). We had been previously warned that it might be a bit of a rough neighborhood. In the light of day, however, the neighbors turned out to be friendly and we never encountered any problems at all.
The house itself, while suitable for our needs, was in a pretty bad state of disrepair. Many of the windows wouldn't lock, it was apparent that the front door had been kicked in at some point (and then repaired without being replaced), and overall it was apparent that the house hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in quite some time (only tidied for new guests). That being said, the laundry machines were great and it really was a convenient location to visit my sister in Oak Park.
I would stay there again if it were the only option available in the area, as it was this time.

About the Host, Jackie
Welcome to Chicago!
I am a working professional and have lived in many diverse communities and enjoy learning others' cultures and languages.
I am relatively new to Airbnb but like this traveling model because I believe it is a win win for both the travelers and homeowners. When we travel with large group like ours, we need to rent at least two or even three rooms. Sometimes the rooms are on different floors, without kitchen, dry-cleaning fees...etc.
We are just regular people and hope to make a little extra income by offering our home to you at below-market pricing so you get a much better return on your travel dollars. Our place is very basic but offers reasonable lodging needs plus more privacy than a regular hotel experience. It provides a unique way to feel and explore Chicago. A kitchen is very important consideration as eating out 3 or 4 times each day can get expensive quickly.
We are still learning about the bnb practice so any constructive comments and suggestions are welcomed and you are encouraged to write a review after your stay.
Thanks for considering us. We wish you a great trip and good health!
