You'll be staying in our well-lit, second bedroom on a full size-6 inch thick-futon. The futon fits one person comfortably and two people have happily stayed, but it is more cozy! There is a small desk for your laptop/work if needed. It is a smaller room, but has everything you need.

Clean sheets and towels provided with access to our shared bathroom with a small clawfoot tub/shower. Free wifi available.


Beautiful, third floor walk up apartment with all hardwood floors and an open layout.

  • Libby et Joe ont été d'agréables hôtes durant notre séjour qui a duré 3 nuits. Ils ont été accueillants et souriants, ils ont été de bons conseils. L'appartement était propre et rangé, la chambre un peu petite mais convenable.
    L'appartement est bien situé, proche du métro et de quelques restaurants. Le quartier semble sûr.

    Libby and Joe were nice hosts during our stay which last 3 nights. They were pleasant and welcoming, they gave good information. Their apartment was clean and tidy, our bedroom was small but decent.
    The apartment is well located, not far from the subway and some restaurants.
    The neighborhood seems safe.

  • Good location. I was hardly there, just needing a place to sleep and shower, but Libby was very accommodating.

  • Libby and Joe were very friendly to us. Joe told us where to go and eat:) He was planning to cook us breakfast!!
    They have very clean and warm room. When we went to Chicago there was snow. It was very cold. But their apartment was very warm. No noise in the night or morning. So we could have a good rest. Lots of free parking spot in front of their place. So we didn't worry about parking. We always back their place around midnight. They have been very kind to us.hehe
    Thank you guys. Hope one day you will visit LA soon!

  • Great host, I was running late on setting up a place and Joe was more than accommodating on short notice.

    February 2014
  • This is the second time that I have stayed with Libby and Joe. My first stay was so positive that I didn't even consider anywhere else. Great couple that offer more than just clean and comfortable lodging.

    January 2014
  • After two days snowed in together, I can attest to how great Libby and Joe are as hosts. They are knowledgeable about the area, are considerate/helpful, and are loads of fun. And if you happen to be there over the weekend, Joe's Sunday Biscuits are an absolute delight.

  • Joe and Libby were incredibly flexible and accommodating! This was my second time staying with them and I'm sure I'll be back!

  • This place is a very good deal, it's right next to the "L" and Libby & Joe were accommodating and friendly. It was freezing in Chicago, but the apartment was plenty warn. I also needed a needle and thread to repair my winter coat and luckily they had some for me to use.
