Heart of Oldtown neighborhood. Walking distance to countless restaurants, shops, lakefront, zoo, comedy/music/theater venues, and 2 mi from downtown. Located less than 1 block from train and divvy bike share. Apt is lower level of single family home.

The space

A wonderful 2 bed/1 bath with a huge sectional available for that extra 5th guest. We have an amazing MEDIA CENTER with projector (and quite the movie selection!) for those moments you would prefer to relax inside. We also have guest parking passes available for those that drove or rented a car to enjoy our city at a rate of $15/car/night, but I do need you to ask for those parking permits in advance - thanks!

Guest access

Your 2 bed/1 bath unit is the lower level of our home but is separated via a interior locked door so everyone has privacy. There is even a separate entrance to your unit on the house. Also, please note the entrance to the unit is from the rear of the house and enters through the second bedroom.

Interaction with guests

I should usually be able to help with questions/concerns so feel free to message/text me. We have tried to address most questions in a manual we wrote and leave in the unit to serve as a resource for you so please take a peek there first as your question may already be answered. Also included in the manual are some notes about public transportation, our favorite restaurant venues and some other fun things to do in the area - Thanks!

Other things to note

1) PARKING - we have guest parking passes available at no extra charge. Please let us know if you will need parking passes in advance or I can't guarantee they will be available to you.

2) there is NO STOVE in the unit (there is a fridge, microwave, dishwasher, sink, toaster, coffee maker)

3) THERMOSTAT - unfortunately the thermostat is not located within the lower level so please just message or text me with desired temperature settings, otherwise I consistently keep it at 70-72 degrees - thanks!

4) WASHER/DRYER - you have your own in unit (detergent, dryer sheets, iron & ironing board available)

5) TOILETRIES - shampoo/conditioner, soap/body wash, hair dryer, Q tips, toothpaste, shaving cream all available, just ask if you think of something else not listed!

6) MOVIES - our selection of movies is available in the far 2 right drawers of the media center below the projector, enjoy!

This place is spacious and beautiful! The furnishing and amenities are top quality. Bryce is a great communicator and made sure we had everything we needed. Loved the neighborhood and the vibe of Old City Chicago! Hope to visit again.

Such a great home away from home! Check in and check out was really easy. Loved the quiet street near the L.

This was the ideal place for our family -- two adults and three college-age kids -- to reconnect, relax and explore Chicago. Exactly as advertised, the space was tasteful, very clean, well-equpped and cheerful (which is saying something, since it's a basement unit). We found the location fantastic for its proximity to public transit, amenities and things to do. The communication with Bryce was straightforward and smooth.

Perfect location to explore everything Chicago has to offer. Totally renovated unit with 2 bedrooms and a fantastic media center/sitting area really has everything you need. Bryce was wonderful to work with and always responsive to inquiries and questions.

A lot of other reviewers have mentioned how clean Bryce's place is - and that's really true! One person staying with me remarked, "This is the cleanest AirBnB I've ever stayed in!" The apartment is close to the Blue line. And there are tons of cute restaurants, shops, and bars nearby. Checking in and out was a breeze. We weren't inconvenienced by the lack of a full kitchen - there's all the basics you could need to get by. I'd definitely recommend Bryce's place.
