This charming, classic Chicago apartment is full of character and is an ideal apartment for short-term visitors. Close to public transportation, nestled near bars and restaurants to suit the tastes of all varieties (though, the apartment itself is relatively quiet), and equipped with modern amenities. Typically the guests stay in one private-bedroom, which includes private a half-bathroom (toilet and sink) on it's own end of the apartment. The apartment has a dishwasher, central heating and cooling, a working fireplace for indulgence in the winter, and a good-sized porch with grill for summertime relaxing. Wi-fi and CableTV are included. An in-unit washer and dryer is available for use.
I'm an easy going, considerate person, who can also be a good resource for recommendations as to things to do. While I do have only one private room listed as available, which includes a full-sized memory foam bed which very comfortably fits two, extra accommodations for up to 4 people (between a second bedroom with a queen-sized mattress and an air mattress) may also be available. Furthermore, I often travel on the weekends and the apartment may be available in its entirety. Ideally, I invite renters who can leave the apartment in as good a condition as when they came, and who are kind and respectful. Other than that, I judge no one and love everybody!
BONUS: Free street parking is available and I have a private garage that may be available if I am traveling. Please communicate your parking needs when inquiring about a reservation.

We had a really great stay with James and Cyril - their place is newly remodeled and totally beautiful. The location couldn't have been better. Literally a block to some of the best restaurants/shopping/train station in wicker park. The room has a half bathroom off of it, which is really nice and private and the place is large, with a big kitchen, main bathroom, back porch with great morning sunlight etc. James and Cyril were very welcoming, friendly and great hosts as well as very communicative prior to our stay. Their 'house manual' had some really great restaurant recommendations which were really appreciated. I would highly recommend staying here.
James was an incredibly warm and thoughtful host. The room and home was clean, enjoyable and was close to everything I wanted to experience in Wicker Park. Highly Recommend it!
James was an outstanding and welcoming host who gave us useful tips on the area and the city. Communication throughout (via email/text/phone) was quick and clear, even though I booked the morning of my stay.
The apartment was very clean and had everything one could ask for, including a private sink and toilet and access to a beautiful shared bathroom.
The apartment is located a few blocks from Damen (Blue), with lots of free on-street parking and a shared bike lock-up station within a block. Lots of great food/drink options nearby too.
James was a great host. I was coming in very late at night (3am) with 2 friends and James was completely accommodating to our arrival. We stayed two nights and it was easy and comfortable. The only downside was we didnt get to spend a little more time with our hosts!
From the initial booking, our stay, to James helping me retrieve my car, everything was outstanding! Great apartment in the historic and trendy neighborhood of Wicker Park. While our stay was brief, we enjoyed the company of James and Cyril. Both were helpful in pointing us in the right direction as to the neighborhood and Chicago. James was great help in saving me hours in retrieving my car after it was towed away from a downtown street. Would love the opportunity to stay again at the Wicker Part Apartment should our travels bring us back to Chicago in the future.
James and Cyril were great hosts, although I was out most days until late. Prior to arriving James was very helpful with my questions and travel plan adjustments (airlines!!). The apartment was great, very comfortable and cool. Experiencing Wicker Park life was great too, close to the blue line and O'Hare. I would definitely stay there again.
My husband and I were visiting Chicago to spend some time with my husband's family. We were looking for a place which was close to their house and was available right away because we had no time to advance book. I was exchanging messages with James between flights, he was very prompt in replying. You can expect a reply from him within a few hours. James gave me the apartment keys 8 in the morning, we left our luggage and went back to see our family. I think that was the only time that I met James and did not get any chance to meet him again. The apartment was very clean and our room was very private. The rest room was attached with the room but the shower was common. I'd certainly mention that the flooring of the rest room with the shower was just beautiful. I loved staying there and highly recommend anyone whose looking for a place to stay in Chicago must try staying at James apartment.
James and Cyril were great! We were in town to visit our daughters so were not around much but the setup was perfect for us. The bed was comfortable, the home clean and accommodating and the location really could not be beat! We will definitely visit again!
James was a great host. He was communicative prior to our arrival and made arrangements to leave work early to let us into the apartment. The location was great- close to trains, dining and shopping and the apartment itself was lovely. James recommended two restaurants in the neighborhood and they were both excellent. My colleague and I were travelling for work and only had one day to explore on our own, but I would definitely consider staying here for a longer visit if I have the chance to check out Chicago again.
James and Cyril made us feel very welcome and relaxed in their home. Apartment is exactly like photos, it is very clean and comfortable. Wicker Park is a great area of Chicago and we spend a day exploring it. There was easy access from airport to apartment via train and also to downtown. Would recomend staying here without hesitation and we really enjoyed our stay.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
