Spacious room with executive desk inside in-progress Oasis for travelers in S. Hyde Park. UC Arts Center, other amenities nearby. Recently purchased house, plan to restore to 1920s condition w/3 guest rooms downstairs.

Things are a bit basic (moving boxes still around), so we've put in low rates-- as frequent travelers, we'll do everything we can to make your stay great, from putting USB plugs & cables everywhere, to a stocked kitchen and fridge.


You get a spacious (13'x18') first-floor rear bedroom in classic Chicago 1905 red-brick/brownstone. It features a luxurious 13" queen mattress, a large executive desk with eaves, a luggage rack and separate closet in hallway. The downtown area (south loop) is 10-25 minutes via car/cab/uber/Lyft (depending on traffic), plentiful public transit is nearby.

We purchased a few months ago and in the early stages of restoring the house to its original early 20th century appearance-- rather than a renovation, we are slowly peeling off layers of past changes to reveal and restore original hardwoods and other features. Our intent is to provide the experience of the 1920s or 1930s combined with necessary current amenities (WiFi, high-power USB plugs, refrigeration!).
Generally we'll try to keep any restoration messes to a minimum and out of your way-- but as "Airbnb experiences" go, if you have time & interest and promise to be careful, we can provide 30-90 minutes of things like training in paint removal with infrared and other technology, as seen on the show "This Old House".

This is also part of a larger educational project, described in brief below.

At this point we are pet-friendly (possibly able to accept some pets *only if* you ask in advance, have basic supplies for cats). We have two young Persian rescue cats, as well as a Siamese, often on the first floor. We are glad to restrict cats to the top floor if you need.

We can provide a temporary Comcast / xfinitywifi guest password if you ask in advance, which will provide roaming access in most of Chicago.

There is video security covering outdoor and some public indoor areas; see House Rules.

We are in a relatively quiet, gentrifying, familyish neighborhood-- we are sometimes up late, usually to get work projects completed! and attempt to be respectful of your schedule and need for quiet.

The West Woodlawn section of Hyde Park is currently the focus of multiple projects to foster urban renewal on Chicago’s Southside, concurrent with the siting of the Obama Presidential Library just to the east. Sunshine Enterprises and Greenline Coffee, at the corner of 61st and Everhardt, have been centers of that effort, and the block we are on the first of a model now expanding to twelve surrounding blocks.

The Lorraine Hansberry House, around which the play “A Raisin in the Sun” (and the Supreme Court case) is centered, is just across and down the street.

Finally, this house is the first of The Dikē Project, an attempt to replicate Deep Springs College’s educational model on the Southside, at the 100th anniversary of Deep Springs. In addition to local staffing, 5% of profits are reinvested in Deep Springs or local nonprofits.

Interakcija s gostima

Ostale napomene

I can offer help, mostly via text messaging-- likely to be around, or may be in meetings/occupied. Hyde Park native, recently returned and reacquainting with Chicagoland.

Last-minute bookings may require some time before check-in (2-4+ hours), but we will attempt to accommodate as possible.

We proudly employ physically and developmentally disabled individuals, in partnership with local community projects. We hope you will be understanding and patient should any issues arise.

Behave well, treat the place as your own, leave things *as you found them* and *where you found them.*
Generally clean up after yourself as you can; dishes should be done soon or placed in dishwasher; we realize short-term guests may be on tight schedules and we'll take care of things, but for stays more than 5 days, please take out the trash occasionally etc.
We usually consider 11pm-11am or so to be quiet-ish hours-- we may be working late on a project, we may get up very early, we may be up after noon. We'll be very aware and respectful of noise during these times, and hope you will be as well. (Let us know if you have specific plans that require adjustment).

No drama, keep it cool and reasonable.

For your security and ours, we have recently installed video security monitoring devices in exterior and interior public areas. Tampering with or disabling security devices is grounds for immediate cancellation of your stay without refund.

"FINE PRINT" stuff that I *really* wish I didn't have to add: (each of these is added here because of an incident):
Do not store food in room (use refrigerator).
Do not change things outside your room or "take care of things" without asking and receiving explicit permission.
DO NOT go into other people's rooms without explicit permission except in a true emergency (this applies if door is unlocked or open).
If you place perishable items in inside trash, please make sure they are removed before rotting, if necessary.
During quiet hours, please do not slam doors, cabinets, stomp around, or make the kind of noise likely to wake someone wearing earplugs. (Only one person has done this, but we have professional lives and obligations, which are sometimes very demanding.)

A gracious host who makes us feel utmost comfortable & meticulously lays out every piece of detail required to make our stay welcome. Home situated pretty nearer to the metra lines & Uber pick ups available in a jiffy - so a visit to downtown Chicago is pretty easy.

I was visiting U Chicago for two weeks, and staying at this clean and spacious bedroom. Kenneth has been absolutely amazing --- he was very interactive and made sure that everything was done right for me. I also felt safe around the neighborhood --- the 61th street is a big street, well-lighted even during the night, and when you pass the Cottage Grove boulevard, U Chicago securities are at every corner. I would definitely try there again if I visit U Chicago in the future.

Kenneth odgovara:
I'm sorry to say that due to a death in my housemate's immediately family, I felt things were not as clean and ordered as we'd have liked, and there was a bit more chaos in the household than normal. A supplement to what Euiwoong notes on security: U Chicago polices its area of Hyde Park very well, with on-street CSOs east of Cottage Grove and vehicle patrols supplementing CPD south to 63rd and west to King Drive.

Ken was a great host--communicative, accommodating, and even showed me around a bit. The space is in an older house but it was clean and comfortable. There's also a fantastic cafe right around the corner.

I really enjoyed this stay! Kenneth is such a nice and considering host. He communicates very well and always notifies me with new information about the neighborhood or the house, and is very friendly. My room is big and I got everything I need. The location is not far from most museums I go to and is very convenient to UChicago. I love his cats too :)

I enjoyed my stay in Kenneth's place. The room is rather well lit in the morning, allowing one to rise with the sun. Woodlawn is also a very interesting place to explore and to contrast with the neighboring community of Hyde Park and the University of Chicago. I imagine that Ken's place will be quite nice once all the renovations are done.
