Welcome to Airbnb! The new homey and affordable way of traveling!

I'm a proud Super Host with a 5 star rating and over 183 reviews.
I am one of the first Oak Park Airbnb Host and full of hosting experience.

As all 183 reviews states, our home is immaculately clean.

Because I personalize each room for each guest according to their needs and comfort, I do not display a specific picture for each room. But rather, if you look through all the pictures, you'll see all of the different set ups that are available and request accordingly.

Frank Lloyd Wright neighborhood is a beautiful residential, quiet, tree lined, green, upscale and super safe.
We are located on the same block of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio.
*** Yes, It's true!
We are much closer to downtown Chicago then many other neighborhoods within the city itself.
Isn't that amazing? Just 20-25 minutes on the green line to the heart of downtown.

This a huge light filled, immaculately clean, fresh, pet free, and newly renovated home.
7 blocks to the Green Line that will take you downtown. its about a 10 minute walk.

*AVAILABLE ROOMS: 7 or more… {Depends on availability}
* I can arrange them anyway you need it to be.
* There are rooms for Couples (queen size bed), single rooms, double rooms and a master suite.
* Some of the rooms can be arranged to fit 3-6 guests if needed and if you don't mind being a little tight. It can and it has been done before...

These are mostly all real mattresses. I will tell you in advance if it will be an air mattress or a foam mattress. Save a lot!

*Each room starts with a basic fee and $22 for each additional person.

You'll share two beautiful full bathrooms that are kept immaculately clean at all times!

We have been a host family for international English students for many years and we love it!
* We are a warm, inviting and love to meet new people from around the world.
We know how to give you your privacy. :)
I have traveled and lived around the world extensively and I speak several languages.
This is our way of having the world come to us. So, WELCOME!

Lots of restaurants, cafes and grocery stores near by our home.
Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is at the end of our block at the intersection.

* Walk through our famous Frank Lloyd Wright streets on your way to the train station. Just 7 blocks and a beautiful 10 minute walk.
The Green Line ride is only 20-25 minute to the heart of downtown.

Don't like to walk? The bus station is 3 blocks away from my home.
The buses are very frequent; anyone rarely waits for it more than 5-7 minutes. Most of the time, you won't even wait at all.

From O'hare airport:
By taxi - 25 minutes.
By public transportation: 40 minutes by blue line for 3 stops (10 minute) and another bus for 25 minutes.. its the shortest way from O'hare.
From Midway airport:
By taxi - 30 minutes
By public transportation:
Orange line and change to Green line. about one hour and ten minutes.
easier with a taxi. :)

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 on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.

Each room starts with a basic fee and $22 for each additional person.
• Rent multiple rooms for your group?
You don't need to reserve them separately if its too hard for you.
I can send you an offer that will reflect the total charge for all the rooms based on your days and number of guests. Makes things easier for the guest!

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 release 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 the keys and damage and will be refunded by AirBnb once keys are returned and the room is inspected.
*To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "Millennium Park" in your inquiry to me.
Check in – 2 PM
Check out - 10 AM - strictly enforced - We must be here to collect your keys to ensure prompt return of your deposit money. We promptly start cleaning the rooms at 10 AM.
Thank you for reading the full description!

Leave the bathroom clean after yourself.

*for my younger guests,~If you are staying on our second floor and using the white bathroom, please be kind and use the 1st floor bathroom after 10 pm.
The reason is: The white bathroom shares walls with 2 other guests rooms and it creates a real big echo noise when flushing the toilet or showering late at night. so, between 10;30pm and 7am, please go downstairs to the 1st floor bathroom. Thank you for your consideration. :)

Weekends quiet time- 10 pm - 9 am.
Weekend quiet time - 10 pm - 10 am ( headphones, low speaking voice etc.)
* If you are coming back late at night from your outing, please whisper only and walk gently to your room. Thank you.

*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 :)
