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.
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
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!)
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.
We don't have many 'rules' but I do provide a very detailed guide that explains getting to the house, entry, kitchen, cleanup, et cetera kinds of things you might like to know. Our only request is that you respect the quiet times for the babies and treat them as you would your own. Thanks!
