Interaction with Guests
- hosts live in the apartment below and strike a balance between being accessible but also respectful of your space and preferences.
-hosts enjoy all cultures and welcome diversity. Former hostel and bed/breakfast employees, I find hosting very easy and pleasurable for both parties.
-Work full time, so tend to give you space but am equally happy engaging and sharing facts about the city.
The neighborhood is unique. It has a urban vibe and its inhabitants are diverse. Bordering Logan Square, Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods, ours has great access to restaurants, bars, nightlife, and we are unified by a 200 acre park called Humboldt Park. There is fishing, pool, playgrounds, tennis and many cultural activities there. You'll hear alot of vibrant music, see fruit vendors, and also have access to the 606 Trail, a new above ground park for bike riding into the city.
- 10 minutes walk to the blue line train that runs from O'hare and into the city center. (via Western or Damen stops).
- 1 minute walk to the North Avenue #72 bus that runs to the Lake and passes train stations and many great neighborhoods. There are also other bus lines,
-1 block to DIVVY station ( Chicago's rent-a-bike) is a block away.

Please be as noisy as the time of day calls for. Other guests may also be renting a room during your stay.
Caitlin was a very nice and helpful host. The location was great and easy to get to the places I wanted to see. Caitlin was very helpful and told me about what was in the neighbourhood and how to get around. The room was cozy but not exactly as pictured in the ad.
Caitlin and her husband are welcoming and experienced travelers themselves; they combine a great atmosphere and enthusiasm for helping guests stays be as seemless as possible.
They went so far as to accommodate me last minute after AirBnb had a problem with their system.
Both Caitlin and Roger were very nice and very welcoming. However, the place look totally different from the pictures here especially the bedroom. The house was partly under reconstruction when we were there and we didn't have some amenity as promised in their page.
For location, the house is not at all close to subway or train station. Only one bus stop nearby. The bus takes us around 40-60 mins to get to red-line nearest train station.
We moved out of this house during in the middle of our stay there because we did not feel safe and comfortable staying in this place.
Caitlin is a really nice person. She was very kind and friendly. The room was perfect and I felt like home. The neighborhood seemed to be safe and the place is close to the CTA blue line. I recommend this place 100%. Plus, she speaks Spanish so it was perfect for me. I hope to visit Chicago again soon. Thanks Caitlin!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Athough Caitlin was very nice and available during our stay, we were surprised to stay in a room/flat that did not match with the pictures/accomodations put on line.
I really enjoyed my stay in Chicago with Caitlin & Rogerio. Caitlin was easy to contact, quick to reply & flexible in my check-in/check-out times. We didn't see each other often, but when we did she was friendly & helpful, especially when I got sick during my stay. Rogerio was there to meet me when I arrived & even helped carry my bags up the stairs which was great!
Their apartment is in a great neighbourhood & so close to the train station - very convenient! The train does go past the back go the bedroom so it can be a little noisy but it didn't disturb me during my stay.
