Located in Humboldt Park, 6 miles from downtown, this basement studio is perfect for a stay in Chicago. We are located on a strip with approximately 11 houses and no houses across. There is a lot of Park area. At night it's a quiet neighborhood. We are located half a block away from the bus to Navy Pier, approx. 45 minutes to get to Navy Pier. There is free street parking available with NO parking permit required. There is a pool (only in summer) and park access half a block away.
Our lovely basement is fully equipped with everything you may need. From a kitchen where you can prepare all your meals to a comfy bed with linens included for a good night sleep. Feel free to peak inside the closet and the vanity in the bathroom, you will find some useful toiletries you forgot back at home.
The building is 3 stories. The Basement, 1st Floor and 2nd Floor. Both the Basement and the 1st floor are rented out thru airbnb. Because this house is more than 100 years old and the wooden floors are the original floors, the footsteps, tv, talking, etc. from the floors above can be heard downstairs in the basement. If you are a light sleeper I don't recommend staying here even though we do provide ear plugs just in case. IMPORTANT: You can hear the walking from upstairs, when people shower or move stuff across the floor. Some guests aren't picky about this but others are so please be aware.
I believe that what makes us different are the small details. We can guarantee a comfy, cozy and clean space. We take pride in hosting and love to please our guests as much as we can.
If requested, pets may be allowed to stay! I am a dog lover myself!
IMPORTANT: If more than 2 would like to stay, please note that it's one KING sized bed and one PULL-OUT sofa.
There is a public pool just half a block away open during the summer. If you love to relax, the house is located right on Humboldt Park so you can go for a jog, a walk or a picnic.

Nancy, my mother, is the one who will greet you and help you throughout your stay. She works during the day but in the evenings is more than willing to help you out with whatever you need. She knows how Airbnb works and is eager to host you! ;-)

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
A lot of guests book without noting where they are booking because of the price. However we are located on a quiet Boulevard of only 11 houses. At night there is no night life on the street. Some guests have reported that upon taking taxis or Uber, the drivers have suggested that this is not a safe area. That however is not true. We have lived in this Boulevard for over 13 years and never have had any bad experiences. We encourage you to take a walk up Division Street and experience for yourself this wonderful neighborhood and all that it has to offer. Little by little Humboldt Park is changing it's reputation and we are proud to be part of it.
As proof that you have read this, when writing please start out with the word "Pancho".

**Please note the location. A lot of guests book because of the price and do not look at the location to then check-out and leave a 1 star location review, which of course makes us sad because we can't pick up our house and move it to downtown.
1. Please do let us know your approx. check-in and check-out times this way we can coordinate our cleaning schedule.
2. The floors above the basement are more than 100 years old so while we definitely want to replace them so they don't squeak so much, it's not something we can afford right now. Therefore, YES you can hear the walking and the other airbnb guests from the floor above. Sometimes it may be quiet but sometimes if they arrive late, you will clearly hear the foot steps on the wood.
Again, IMPORTANT: You can hear the walking from upstairs, when people shower or move stuff across the floor. Some guests aren't picky about this but others are so please be aware.
3. Smoking is not allowed inside.
4. Please turn off the lights upon exiting.
5. We ask our guests to please strip the bed sheets and leave the garbage under the stairs. Thank you.
6. Unfortunately, as much as I would love to, due to work reasons I am not able to personally welcome my guests.

Hola! Thank you so much for taking the time to read a bit about myself. I will start out by saying that to me there's nothing like a good conversation. I love talking about geography, different cultures and even finances.
My true passion is hosting. I would love to dedicate to it full time sooner rather than later. After having studied abroad for 3 years, more than taking myself around the world, I want to show Puerto Rico and Chicago to the world. If you're curious, I was born and raised in paradise: Puerto Rico!
I know how much guests value when a host personally welcomes them, however due to work and being between Puerto Rico and Chicago, unfortunately I'm not available to greet each guest personally. Regardless, I can guarantee that all my places will make you feel like at home. I have put a lot of effort and love into getting them setup. Each one of our listings ("our" because my mom is the big helper) has been available for hosting after both my mom and I have stayed at each one and have approved them. We will say we are quite into the details; if you are too, I'm sure you'll notice.
About me, I can't live without traveling, those deep conversations that by the end have made you question yourself and of course I most definitely can't live without Pancho! Pancho is my son (well, my dog) whom I just spoil too much. I rescued him from the streets of Puerto Rico and ever since we have been partners in crime.
FOOD! Almost forgot about that one. Can't live without it! I love trying new dishes so if I'm around and you feel like cooking and exchanging recipes, let's do it!
I love hosting guests that have positive vibes, are relaxed and know how to make the most out of every moment.
My favorite two board games are Mancala and Rummikub so if you think you can take a challenge, I'm more than willing to play! ;-)
