We live in a quiet neighborhood and request quiet enjoyment. I would be happy to host you but we don't encourage loud parties or noise specially between 9:00 pm - 9:00 am.
We have hard wood floors and noise travels between units. In unit 1 or 2, if you have little kids, we request you to please play sit-down games with them early in the morning (before 9:00 am) or take them to the park or a walk if they are running around too much early in the morning. Walking without shoes inside the unit also helps reduce foot noise. Guests in the other units might be sleeping in.
If you need to hang outside for a cigarette or something, please go to the East side of the building. We have chairs and a table there.
For long weekends & Holidays we have a 5 -6 nights min. 1 week minimum stay for Marathon week
Normal Check in Time is 5:00 pm and check out time is 11:00 am. But we can be flexible with the times. Please let us know in advance about your times.
You will find parking permits on the dining table. The instructions are on the permit. You need one permit per day per car, and parking is enforced only from 6:00 pm to midnight.
If you rearrange any furniture or items in the unit, please place them back in their original location.
Also, we have Front Loading Washing Machine, please Only use Detergent that has the "he" (High Efficiency) logo on it. One of our guests used regular detergent and almost flooded the kitchen.
Also, while in a wash cycle the washing machine door is automatically locked. Please don't yank the door open; force will cause the door latch to break. If you really need to open the door please cancel the wash cycle using the buttons which will then automatically unlock the door. Please wait to hear the click before opening the washing machine door. If the door latch is broken or flooding is caused we will charge the guests for the damage and all replacement costs.
Please don’t leave any iron, stove, oven etc on unattended or when you leave home. Please don’t throw grease/fat down the drain as it blocks the drains, if there are bad odors as a result of cooking etc you will be charged for these or other damages.
Please do NOT use the Self Clean Mode on the Kitchenaid Range/Oven. This is a known problem with the ovens. Very high temperatures upto 900 will destroy the electronic components in the oven. If this happens then the guest will be responsible for the replacement cost of the stove.
For monthly rentals the rent is low, and guests pay for all utilities & $150 cleaning fee & can purchase parking permits.
Check out Instructions:

Staying att Reem's house in Chicago was a super experience. We were 6 colleagues staying in the two units and we had an abundance of room.
The location is perfect. Lots of great places to eat and a very nice and calm area. A ten minute walk to the train and 5 short stops from downtown.
Reem was a pleasure to communicate with. She gets back to you promptly and makes sure that you have a great stay.
I can highly recommend these units whether for business or pleasure.
Overall a fine place to stay in a pleasant neighborhood near DePaul University. Air conditioning was great to have in the hot+humid Chicago summer, and in-unit laundry is perhaps one of the most understated perks when you are traveling for many days. The hosts were very friendly and professional - correspondence was fairly prompt and detailed instructions about WiFi, garbage, laundry etc. were posted on the refrigerator.
We stayed in Unit 2 which has 4 bedrooms, each with a full- or larger sized bed. That was plenty of space for our 7-person group, however with that many people you need to coordinate shower schedules as there is only 1 bathroom. The couch was also comfortable enough for someone to sleep on.
The place is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest train stop. Parking passes were provided though none of us rented cars (but good if you have visitors). Guidebooks and tourist brochures were left for our convenience.
The only thing that was a bit strange was that we were asked to put the sheets and towels in the wash before leaving. With my past experiences with other Airbnb hosts I’d never been asked to do this, so this was something additional that we had to plan for. To be fair, the instructions say not to stress out over this, but we wanted to be good guests so of course we did our best. And I fully understand that this simple chore goes a long way in helping the owners prepare the unit for the next guest, so it’s not a huge deal.
This couple has been running this rental for years, and it shows in their professionalism and attention to detail. Don’t forget to read and sign the guestbook -- lots of interesting stories from people across the world. Thanks again Reem for the hospitality!
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to leave a detailed review. Thank you for doing the sheets too. Most of our guests help with that. But there are some who don't have the time, which we completely understand. If we are booked back to back, then laundry helps us get the unit ready in time. Guests have an option to check in early or check out late. We try to work out these schedules with the guests.
I hope we get to host you and your friends & family again.
Un excelente lugar, excelente hubicación y buen anfitrión.
Es una excelente opción si tu viaje es como el de nosotros, que salíamos durante todo el día y regresábamos a descansar por la noche.
Muy recomendable para viajes familiares.
Gracias por todo!
