The Space

A cozy, charming condo in a vintage gated courtyard building in East Lakeview.

The location is ideal: close to public transportation and accessible to cabs, five blocks away from Wrigley Field, steps away from trendy bars, restaurants and Whole Foods, next to Lake Shore Drive, walking distance to tennis courts, golf course and lakefront trail.

Specifically, it's less than two blocks away from F. O'Mahoney's corner Irish pub. It's close to bars in Boystown down Halsted Street and Wrigleyville bars down Clark Street. It's just a few blocks to 7-Eleven, Starbucks and IHOP.

It's not far at all from downtown tourist attractions. You can catch one of three buses (#146 Express/#151) on my corner to get downtown. The train stop is only four blocks away too. It's a safe location with the new police station four blocks away.

The condo is located on the second floor and is recently renovated with hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, limestone bath, wood burning fireplace, in-unit washer and dryer. The bedroom has a queen-size bed. The spacious couch also opens up into another bed.

There's no hotel in this popular neighborhood.
I'm willing to open my lovely home to guests who will treat my condo as if it was their place. I will provide you with linens and toiletries, and full access to my entire home including cable TV (HBO, Showtime and Starz) and Wi-Fi.

The price includes all the utilities. The more advance notice the better so I can find other accommodations. Please check on the dates before booking to make sure the condo is available.

Also, street parking can be challenging with permits and meters. But directly across the street, there is a secure public parking garage that charges around $30 for 24-hour parking.

I am easily accessible during your stay and flexible to your travel plans. I keep a clean home and can give you some great dining and bar recommendations too.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Safe travels!

  • Leonor was a great host! She welcomed me to her awesome condo, which is perfectly located for easy access to the town, showed me where everything was, and even left a little goodie basket with 'what to do' type guides. The place was clean and ready to go! She was responsive to texts and overall really helpful. All this on top of simply being a delightfully nice and warm person over all :) I highly recommend Leonor and her Lakeview area condo!

  • Leonor is a great host! Prompt response on booking, as well as flexible with check-in/check-out. Her place is clean with natural light and a great kitchen. Transit is close by, making it easy to get around the city. We'd definitely recommend Leonor's place to a friend. Thanks again for sharing your space!

  • Gorgeous place, very friendly host and perfect location! She was easy to get a hold of and made our stay so comfortable. She was also very flexible for check in/check out ... which we appreciated because of delayed flights and late departure times. We also appreciated the wine she left for us! So thoughtful!

  • Fantastic spot right off of Lake Shore Drive!

    I really enjoyed the location of Leonor's apartment! I also really appreciated how easy going and friendly she was! She left a bottle of wine for me, too! The space was absolutely delightful and relaxed! I would rent again from her!

    Thanks!!!

  • Leonor was very welcoming and responded promptly to my booking and all subsequent messages. This was extremely helpful as my stay was last minute, and I was stressed out already!

    Her condo was clean, well-lit, and comfortable. And it was SO quiet, which I appreciated tremendously. The location is convenient to restaurants (Broadway is a short walk west) and the El (about a half mile, maybe less).

  • Leonor was a great host, responsive, professional and very accommodating. Upon arrival, Leonor had arranged access to her condo on a week day in the early afternoon which was definitely a bonus to be able to drop our luggage and head out to explore. She also had a basket of snacks and a bottle of wine to make us feel welcomed. Her condo is conveniently located across from the lake and 5 blocks to Wrigley Field which made it extremely nice not to have to mess with taxis or public transportation. The neighborhood is safe and very cute and her condo was very clean and comfortable. Whole Foods and a variety of great restaurants and coffee houses/cafes are within walking distance. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to the Lakeview area to book their accommodations through Leonor.

  • Miss Leonor's place is well-furnished and immaculate. Only a 5-minute walk from the various Lakeview strips is close to the fun but far enough to be relaxed and quiet. There is good security -- 3 stages of locks to the apartment -- and it's in a great neighborhood anyway. As a host, Leonor is super friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I definitely felt like I could have contacted her for anything at any time. I highly recommend this space to any airbnb-er.

  • The condo is very comfortable and in a great location. Within walking distance to many restaurants, public transportation, and Wrigley Field.

  • Leonor was an awesome host and the place was great! Perfect apartment to rent for the weekend, incredible location right by the lake and an easy cab ride to tons of great destinations. Leonor had the place cleaned and set up for a great stay, even left some wine and snacks with guides to fun things to do in the neighborhood. I would recommend Leonor and her apartment to anyone coming into Chicago for the weekend!
