After 6 years hosting we still enjoy making our space a special place…as one reviewer commented, "The pictures don't really do justice to how beautiful the apartment is. I will miss having my morning coffee while overlooking the tranquil garden."
Stay in a beautiful vintage apartment located in trendy Logan Square, walking distance to some of Chicago's best restaurants and bars and just a quick train ride to downtown attractions. We are conveniently located on the blue line, making travel between O'hare and downtown fast and easy. We also have plenty to street parking if you are driving to town.
As one of the first hosts in Chicago, we have plenty of experience ensuring your stay is quiet and comfortable. Our brick 2-flat is tastefully decorated and has everything you need for your visit to Chicago. We live upstairs in a separate unit and are available to help with questions about restaurants, the area, and getting around Chicago. You will have access to a lovely private deck that overlooks our beautiful yard, that you are also welcome to use.

We enjoy meeting our guests and welcome as little or much interaction as you like. I try to be home when you arrive, but if I can't, the door opens with a code. You might see us on the back stairs coming and going, but your apartment is completely private and separate from ours.
We are very family friendly (since we have a kid ourselves!), and we love hosting kids. We have some gear you can borrow while here, including a pack n' play (portable crib), a countertop high chair (sassy seat), and toys/books galore.

We require a filled out your profile if you are booking instantly, including a bit about yourself and what you do for a living. When you email please tell me a little bit about your trip and your additional guests. We live upstairs and like to know who is staying with us. We now allow small pets for an additional fee, but please email me for an ok before you book.
The apartment is completely private, but we live upstairs and I do attempt to meet all our guests at some point, if only to say hello.
We use code for easy access, not keys. For security reasons I can only send the code to the person booking.
Absolutely no parties or events. Many of our guests invite a couple friends or family over for drinks or dinner, and we encourage that, but larger events and parties are not allowed.
We do not allow booking for others. We like to have communication with the person actually staying in the apartment.
Check in: 2pm. You are welcome to drop your bags if you arrive in town earlier, or store them here for later pick-up.
Check out: 11am. You are welcome to leave your bags if you have a late departure.
Cigarette smoking is allowed on the back deck and in the yard. Do not smoke inside the apartment.
I have a small family (partner, Dave and daughter, Frances, 14) and a passion for nature and travel. I prefer a small cafe to a trendy restaurant, and like to spend my free time hiking, biking and gardening (ok, Dave is the gardener). I spent big chunks of my '20s and '30s in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, but travel is harder these days with a school schedule so I have been exploring the States, Mexico and South America little by little.
