About this listing
Private master bedroom sits on the top floor of a 3-story brick home in trendy, easy-city access neighborhood of Old Town. Great view of downtown skyline. Plenty of great bars in direct proximity. Easy access to downtown, bus, train, taxis, etc
Verified renters with more than a couple positive prior Airbnb references only please.
3rd Floor Luxurious Master Bedroom with 20+ foot ceilings, skyline view, private walk in rain-fall shower, his and her's sinks, etc. Perfect for one person or a travelling couple looking to explore all Chicago has to offer. Located in Old Town (just north of the high-rise downtown area) at a major intersection just minutes from main strip (Wells Street)and great nightlife. Also right around corner from a cabbie hang out and all night Pakistani restaurant, so it is literally the easiest place in Chicago to catch a taxi. Starbucks, Panera, dry-cleaning, Target, and a grocery store are all right around the corner. Plenty of free street parking too which is lucky since not typical for chicago.
House itself is a 1999 built, 3400 sq ft single family, three story with 6 rooms, 5 bathrooms, roof deck, dining room, two kitchens, two living rooms, fireplaces, etc.
There is currently myself and 2 other really nice, fun-loving, and respectful guys, two of which share the floor with my bedroom (the one for rent) but are only there sporadically, are really easy going, and love having guests and recommending places to go. I rent the room on AirBnB when I am away on travels, so it would be yourself(selves) in my master suite and Mike and Dmitry in the other two rooms on the top floor(if they are even around... which is unlikely. They have their own bathroom btw). They are really good guys who will also be able to point you in the right direction for transportation, restaurants, bars, etc. We all have guests and post our rooms on this site when we are gone so everyone is pretty chill with the arrangement. There is a key-code lock on the front door so you can come and go as you please, as well as lockable door on the suite for rent.
10 minute walk to the red or brown line train stops.
One minute walk to couple major bus stops.
free washer/dryer, kitchen, living room, fireplace, patio deck, grill, etc
Interaction with Guests
Minimal. I'm typically out of town when renting my room to guests.
Most convenient neighborhood in the city. Easy drive to all major Interstates, and incredibly easy access to brown or red line trains, taxi's, busses, etc. Located minutes walk from trendy Old Town area with Wells Street shops, bars, and restaurants!
yes, bus stop right around corner and red and brown line stops within 10 minutes walk
Other Things to Note
Super high ceilings and extra wide lot make this place feel very much like a comfy suburban home neatly tucked into the heart of the city.
Treat the place like it's your own.
If my roommates are home, feel free to be sociable (they certainly will be) but respect their space and privacy. No shoes on the carpet.
Always keep doors locked.
Don't leave the house with any windows open.
Come and go as you please and enjoy the city for all it's worth!
