Really big master suite in lovely wicker park 2-level condo. Surrounded by the best food and attractions in the city, 7 minutes walking to the blue line, 20 minutes by train/bus to anything in the city.

The Space

Walk Score 94! Huge private bedroom/bathroom suite in our very large Wicker Park condo. 14' high ceilings and queen sized bed, private bathroom, closet for storage. Wifi, Apple TV and the like provided. Located in the middle of Wicker Park's best attractions, bus/rail, and dining.

We're a late-20s working professional couple with two awesome babies and a great condo in Chicago's best hood. We're always game for hosting new and great people and would very much like to hear from you!

Wicker Park is hands down the best place in Chicago for foodies, plus we've got great access to the cities many culinary attractions. Our next door neighbor is an Italian cafe frequently referred to as having 'one of Chicago's best patios'. The lakefront/Lincoln Park/Gold Coast/Mag Mile is 10-20 minutes by bus depending on the time and day you are going. Our house is an 8 minute walk from two blue line stops to get you to/from O'hare and Downtown quickly. If going to Midway add a transfer to the Orange line for about 50 minutes total on the train.

Guest Access

Private bed and bath, kitchen and dining area (we love group meals!), baby gear (stroller, toys, changing table, port-a-crib), your own set of keys to come and go as you please, AppleTV, outdoor patios, Laundry, car rental (Zipcar), bike share (Divvy), transit/CTA and plenty of street parking

Interaction with Guests

Up to them, but we love hosting folks and often find time to share a meal and maybe a movie. Usually if we're doing events around town we'll invite guests or even just for coffee/drinks with friends. One lucky couple got to go sailing with us :O

The Neighborhood

They call Brooklyn the Wicker Park of the East :P - We love our hood, it's full of energy, great food, art, cafes bars and just minutes from downtown and the lakefront or any other great Chicago attraction (Wrigley field!)

Getting around

There's a bus stop on the street in front of our house. We also have bike-share on our block (Divvy) and are about 7 mins walking to the Damen or Division CTA Blue Line stops which connect downtown and to the airports.

  • The room at Drew's place was very nice. It was spacious, private and quiet. Drew and Shea were very welcoming and provided helpful suggestions for places to eat. The Wicker Park neighbourhood was awesome and if we didn't stay at Drew and Shea's place we would have completely missed out!

  • Drew's place is great, and I highly recommend it. The place is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. The neighborhood is great, there are very nice restaurants in the area, and the walk from Drew's place to the train stop (Damen, in the Blue Line) is a nice one. Drew and his family are amazing hosts, and they make sure that their guest feels welcome and comfortable. They also recommended several places for me to visit in Chicago, and they were all excellent suggestions. Drew made sure to check with me how everything was going during my stay there, and that was awesome! Five stars!

  • It has been a very nice experience, Drew and his family are very supportive and charming. I felt like at home. Whatever the could do for me they did, really remarkable attention from their part. If I have the opportunity again to visit Chicago I would request their home again.
    Chicago is no doubt one of the best place within the states.

  • We absolutely loved our stay with drew and shea and their two amazing kids. We have a child a similar age, so being able to share toys and borrow diapers was perfect. We stayed at their home for a week so we really got to know them, and I'm happy to say we have found new friends in Chicago! They are very generous with their home- open fridge, giant screen for movie night, big bedroom with huge closet (where we set up a sleep spot for our toddler), nice bathroom. They even cooked an amazing meal for us one night. Their location is also perfect: they are in the heart of wicker park on division, surrounded by amazing restaurants and shops. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Such a great space in such a great part of town. Drew and his wife are super nice and extremely accommodating. I highly recommend staying with them or renting their entire property.

  • We liked Chicago, and in large part thanks to Drew and Shea and their
    apartment.

    The hosts are very kind and helpful, they were giving us all sorts of
    advice: food places, clubs, getting around, etc. Their kids are very nice,
    not of a shrieking kind.

    The room is located on the ground floor (located mostly below the ground),
    and is fully for the guests, complete with a private bathroom and a closet.
    Everything was in good condition and very clean.

    Last but not least, we enjoyed the neighborhood. I recommend taking a walk
    up the Hoyne Avenue to the Wicker Park and enjoy the buildings and the
    quiet atmosphere. Add to that the fact that you can reach the downtown by
    taking 2-3 metro stops, and you get a superb location.

    I would definitely recommend staying here. In fact, we ourselves got there
    thanks to a recommendation from our friends who had stayed with the hosts
    previously.

  • Awesome hosts. Super easy and enjoyable to speak with. The room is on it's own floor with a private bathroom, so you get the feeling of having your privacy and at the same time being able to be social with Shea and Drew.

    October 2013
  • Drew and Shea are super friendly and helpful. They are awesome hosts.
    The room is huge and the apartement is located in a great neighborhood.

    I totally recommend booking with them. We will, once we are able to come back to Chicago.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Drew's place. The location worked out perfectly for us. Drew is very accommodating and even helped us find a parking spot. The room is lovely, spacious, private, and very clean. Drew's family is warm and welcoming. I hope his place is available when we come back to Chicago. I give it my highest recommendation!
