Amazing skyline view from the kitchen!! Easy street parking, minutes to downtown and tourist attractions. Bus stop across the street heading to downtown.

The space

***If our place is showing available, it is actually available so we will not be able to reply to inquiries asking if it is available. If you want to book it, please just send a request. Also, we will need guests to (at the very least) have phone, email and (website hidden) verification. Ok, on to the fun stuff now...***

Want a bright, airy retreat in Chicago that is convenient to not only the "classic" Chicago sights but also to some gorgeous little neighborhood spots that will make you smile? Look no further! Our 2 bedroom, 2 full bath (with a total of three showers) is perfect for a couple looking to relax, a family in town taking in the sites or a few friends looking for a unique and affordable way to see Chicago. Beyond the two bedrooms we have a big ol' couch, a loveseat, and a cot that kiddos could totally sleep on. The master bedroom and second bedroom both have queen beds.

We are on the third floor of a walk up so if you are not into some stairs, this might not be the place for you!


Our neighborhood, West Town, is peppered with great little restaurants, shops and bars. Ruxbin, Mexique, Coalfire Pizza, TWO, Roots Pizza, La Scarola, Yuzu Sushi, The Matchbox, Twisted Spoke (1/2 price on all whiskeys on the menu on Wednesdays and they have a killer selection) and so many more great places within walking distance. Dovetail and Seek Vintage have some fantastic vintage clothes, accessories and little items for your home. Within a 10-15 minute walk (or very quick bus ride), you will find a little hub of great furniture shops (vintage and new) such as The Painted Lady and Urban Remains are just a few standouts in this very cool row of shops. The neighborhood, for as close as it is to so much, is relaxed and friendly. Also we are a quick walk, bus or cab ride from Wicker Park and Bucktown, where you have dozens of fun restaurants and nightlife.

If you drive into Chicago, street parking is a breeze around here-no meters or zoning restrictions...Just watch for street cleaning signs! We have a sweet little deck in the back that is great for having a snack or sipping a glass of wine or delicious craft beer found at our little neighborhood grocery store Green Grocer Chicago (full disclosure-we own Green Grocer Chicago so we are a bit biased of course but truly you can find some really fantastically delicious foods/drinks there!).

There is no smoking in our apartment or on our deck. We had a recent guest set a fire on our deck due to a cigarette ember so absolutely no smoking on our WOODEN deck. If you insist on smoking please go to the front concrete steps of the building and close all doors behind you. We will ask you to leave if we find out you have been smoking on our deck or inside.

We ask for a two night minimum stay over weekends but always email us even if you only need it for one night (especially last minute-we can be even more flexible!)
All in all, we think you'll love our place. It's modern but cozy and comfortable. We have free wifi, ROKU, a great open kitchen with a view of the Sears, excuse me, Willis Tower and generally just a happy place to land after you go out and explore this incredible town!

Of course like all people on this site we just ask our guests to remember that this is actually our home! Please don't pull a "David Lee Roth in the 80s" style party and mess shit up : ) Hang up wet towels and wash clothes, and if you have stinky trash/recycling please put it in the bins in the back of the building. No smoking inside the house ever. Smoke on the front steps only but bring something to collect your cigarette butts. We can discuss possible pets staying but we don't make it a policy that it's always ok. But please ask if you have pets so we can chat with you about it. In general we want people to love our city and enjoy their stay in our place!

Nice place. Loved the Green Grocery a couple doors down. Note it is on the third floor with many steps so make sure your good with stairs. We always found street parking on Grand Ave which was convenient.

We stayed at Gary and Cassie's place when in town for a wedding. The apartment had everything we needed and is conveniently located - about a 15-20 walk to the Blue Line so getting around was easy. Check in and out was a breeze. The apartment is spacious and well appointed.

Very spacious and comfortable place. Well equipped. Conveniently located. The owners worked with our late check in and early check out times. Helpful house manual. We will stay again if we come back to Chicago.

Gary and Cassie's place was clean and exactly as pictured. Extremely walkable to lots of places and located in a friendly neighborhood! Second time staying here and was just as good as the first time! 10/10 recommend!

We thought the home was such a delight and it was luxurious to have two bathrooms. We had such terrible issues opening the door to the building each time that we would be scared we would be locked out. The neighborhood is awesome with on street parking and great restaurants. The home was very pretty, comfortable, and would be ideal to host a large dinner while there with a great kitchen and open dining/living room.

House is close to fun areas and has a beautiful view. Walk to great restaurants and train stations are a walk away if you want to go a little further. Perfect little home.
