Sleeping room for 4 only minutes from downtown. Art driven neighborhood with great restaurant choices only blocks away. Public transport is a breeze and the plants will keep you breathing easy. Did I mention ample FREE street parking?
PLEASE READ WHOLE DESCRIPTION
Huge apartment with lots of plants and 14' tall ceilings in Pilsen. My place is perfect for folks that are traveling with lots of gear that they want to keep inside rather than out in their vehicle. Families must have kids that love dogs and no little ones under the age of 10! I don't have a T.V. but I do have a lot of board games.
I used to host two different listings in this space but I have decided to switch it up and offer the entire front of the apartment as one listing. You will have 2 private bedrooms.
One bedroom has a queen sized bed and small closet.
The other bedroom has a full sized lofted bed and a extra long single sized bed underneath. The futons in the living room are both a full sized bed when not in couch form.
I live in a private bedroom in the rear of the apartment with my own entrance. I will be sharing the bathroom and kitchen with you. I will keep things tidy but expect you to do the same.
My dog Puck will bark every time you come home but he is all talk. I will not tolerate guests that are scared of dogs. Please find another place to stay if you are the least bit shy about hanging out with Puck!
I charge $59/ night for solo travelers and ask for $10 more per person up to 4 total. So 2 guests is $69/night, 3 guests is $79/night, 4 guests is $89/night. I do not negotiate between April and December. January through March I will happily extend special offers.
Full access to everywhere except the back bedroom. I live there.
Interaction with Guests
I will be in and out so if you are home I'll make nice! Ask me anything you like, I've gotten pretty good at hosting after 3 years.
Fun neighborhood. Lots of good food and entertainment. Art gallery open studios every month on the 2nd Friday is less than a block away.
Less than 2 minute walk to buses or bike sharing station. Less than 10 minute walk to the nearest train station which gets you to any train you want in less than another 10 minutes.
Other Things to Note
I have one party on the second Friday of every month. If you are staying here on one of those Fridays you can join in on the fun or not, but I hope you will!
Please do not bring anyone else back to the apartment. Keep tidy in the kitchen but feel free to use all of the gear. Make yourselves at home!
Gregory's spot is beautiful. High ceilings, lots of natural light, plants galore. We had two bedrooms to choose from and the one with the loft bed and futon was so cozy and nice for my boyfriend and I in the middle of winter in Chicago. You do share a common living spaces with Gregory, which we found no issue with since he was so friendly and out of the house most of the time. I love the Pilsen neighborhood and would recommend this airbnb to anybody, especially those traveling with more than two people.
I wouldn't advertise this as "entire home". It's definitely a room in a shared apartment. When I arrived I had to go in for privacy. I don't know why it is allowed to advertise this as entire place. Apartment was too cold. Room was small and the bed was like Arne bed. I am 6ft and feet didn't fit in bed. There r no pictures of the room in listing (when I rented) should have asked for one. And it is south of downtown. U will need to take 2 buses at least 20 min to get to the loop.
Sorry if I am being to harsh but it wasn't like he tried to make my stay comfortable or anything. I don't recommend this.
Greg has a lovely and homely apartment! We stayed in the room with the loft bed (there are two free bedrooms to choose from) and the bed was super comfy and the room was nice and warm. Greg is a friendly and enthusiastic host who will make you feel right at home. Make sure you try his board game Knock Down Barns during your stay!
Had a fantastic time in Chicago, Gregory couldn't have been a better host, made the experience wonderful. The place is wonderful and very well situated, not far from the city, and places to get food for all meals were also very close. Would definitely recommend staying here!
Greg was a very nice host! He was very helpful and made us feel comfortable in his flat. The place was spacious and atypical and corresponded to the pictures. Pilsen is a very nice neighborhood and Greg's place is not far from public transportation (bus and subway).
Greg was SUPER helpful before and during my stay. Room was cozy, warm (important for Chicago in December), and quiet. Thank you Greg!
Great experience with Greg. He is a very laid back, cool guy. He makes you feel comfortable and helps you out with whatever you need. The neighborhood is nice, there are good options of bars to go. As far as transportation we mostly used uber which was convenient and also the bus line which was 2 blocks away. I strongly recommend staying in Greg's house.
