Stay in one of the most fun and exciting neighborhoods in Chicago, yet have easy access to the main tourist attractions just 20 - 30 minutes away by public transportation. My place is close to many cafes, restaurants, bars, parks and 2 blue line subway stops. Explore the city on a bike or walking, divvy station located around the corner. 606 Trail just a 1/2 mile away.
It's in a great location! I am a 20-min bus ride to Magnificent Mile/Water Tower Place and the lakefront, or a 20 - 30 minute bus/train ride to Millennium Park and downtown (the Loop).
The bedroom has a full size futon bed in the private room with a new comfy and thick mattress (not pictured). In addition to the private room the living room, kitchen and bathroom are available for guests to use. All guests will receive their own shelf in refrigerator and cabinets.
The apartment is close to 2 grocery stores (~10 minutes walking), so you can make your own meals if preferred. You will have clean linens and towels ready for you when you arrive. I have WI-FI (will give you the password when you arrive). Absolutely no smoking inside the apartment.
The apartment is just 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of Michigan Ave and Water Tower Place. It is in the heart of Wicker Park with Ukrainian Village to the south and Bucktown to the north. It's an 8 minute walk to two Blue Line stops (Damen or Division). The Division station is just three stops from downtown and after a 10 - 15 minute ride you can be enjoying the sights and sounds of Chicago's famous "Loop". The local area (Wicker Park/Bucktown) has tons of restaurants, bars, clubs shopping and plenty of charm. Nightlife hotspots within walking distance. Great restaurants include Smoke Daddy, Big Star, Bangers & Lace, Bongo Room, etc..
Ideal for couples or solo travelers. 1 yoga mat is available if you want to practice here or I can direct you to studios within walking distance.
If you have a car street parking is free (some surrounding streets require a permit). Via public transportation getting downtown (door to door) takes about 25-30 minutes.
Anything else you want to know please ask - Thanks!
You are renting a private room in an apartment in which I live full time. You'll definitely have access to the whole apartment.
Interakcija s gostima
I understand most guests rather do their own thing, so that is the approach I mostly go with. However, I'm open to interacting with guests if they are open to that.
I'm a friendly host who has traveled the world and loves to help and host fellow travelers. I'll definitely give you detailed info on the neighborhood and how to get around via public transportation. I can provide you a lot of great information about the area and city in general.
I usually have coffee available for those that like coffee in the morning. If there are fruits in the fruit bowl in the kitchen feel free to grab some!

NO drugs and NO smoking.
I love traveling to other countries, learning about other cultures and seeing live music. My favorite countries so far are Brazil, Ethiopia, Turkey, Nepal and so many others!
