Enjoy a peaceful, light-filled home in a quiet, diverse, residential neighborhood. Whether for work, study, or pleasure, you'll be minutes away from the lake, McCormick Place, downtown and the University of Chicago. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use all of the common areas, including kitchen, living, and dining room. I just ask that you please clean up after yourself if cooking.

There is also a playground right in front of the house with swings & jungle gyms for those interested.

Interaction with guests

Upon check-in, I'd love to chat, offer advice, and help orient you to the place and to the city. During your stay I will be on-call 24/7 if you need anything at all (seriously--please never think twice about reaching out, whether it's for directions to a ramen place or if you can't find the dish soap). Don't hesitate to set expectations around communication when you book.

Other things to note

• The unit is on the third floor of a three-story walk-up--there is no elevator. I will definitely help you carry luggage upon check-in/check-out.

Check in time is flexible

• General be-a-nice-person rules apply, so try not to break things, don't run around the space screaming after dark (or really at any time), and generally try to be friendly & respectful.
• Please ensure that the front door to the building and gate are closed on your entry/exit and try not to slam the doors too much as families with little ones live by the entrance.
• I try to be as environmentally-conscious as possible, so please do your best to conserve resources (e.g. turn off lights when not in use, etc).
• Please squeegee the shower doors after your shower.
• Please leave your shoes on the mat outside of the unit.

This was the best Airbnb experience I have ever had. Ksenia is an amazing host and communication could not have been better. She was readily available for all questions and always quick in her responses before my arrival. Ksenia met me to let me in and show me around the place and how everything works. The place is even better than the photos show--beautiful, clean and bright. She even arrange breakfast for me when I arrived--strawberries and the yoghurt of my choice. This is the perfect place to stay if you need to be near the University of Chicago--close to U of C, as well as restaurants, shopping and a movie theater. It is also easy to get downtown--by taxi or by public transit. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you, Ksenia!!!

This beautiful apartment is even more spacious than it looks in the photos. The location is perfect for anyone commuting to the University of Chicago or downtown Chicago, the neighborhood is lovely, and Ksenia is one of the most helpful and friendly hosts I've encountered on airbnb. When there was a minor problem with the boiler, she came right away and had it fixed immediately. We had a fantastic experience!
