Welcome to the best kept secret in Chicago! Humbolt Park/Ukrainian Village!

The space

The apartment is located on the 3rd floor- no elevator! You probably won't spend too much time here as Chicago has a million things to do but it's comfy and I'm sure you will love it!

In any case, you will have your own bedroom with a brand new full size bed and mattress with a 3 inch memory foam mattress topper, along with soft sheets and blankets and a table with 2 chairs if you want to hang in the bedroom. Otherwise you will have full use of the house- sans my bedroom.

I have high speed wifi and a comfy living area complete with a giant 4K TV with Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime (please don't rent anything- there are tons of free movies and shows) etc. I have a fully stocked kitchen and you are welcome to use anything. Definitely have coffee and tea for y'all, as I'm a coffee drinker but a short 5 minute walk away is Dark Matter Coffee Star Lounge if you want something more fancy :) Please clean up after you are done in the kitchen!

I have a nice little patio with a table and chairs where you can sip your coffee in the morning or enjoy the sunset with a tasty alcoholic beverage if the crazy Chicago weather permits.

The bathroom is shared and I have most amenities including hairdryer, curling iron etc. I will provide towels for you. The washer dryer is available to use also.

Parking is permit only on my street, I can provide you with a parking pass for 16$ a day or you can park half a block away on Chicago for free.

I work a normal 9-5 M-F and half of the time I take my dog to work with me. My pup is a 4 year old small chiweenie (I think) who is the friendliest! She rarely barks and mostly just sleeps during the day. She has the run of the house and will come in your room if you let her. If you don't want her in there, just shut the door. :) I occasionally go out on weekdays but am pretty laid back normally. I am always out and about on weekends but am available for help and suggestions anytime.

Guest access

You will have full run of the house! I occasionally go out of town and you will have the whole house sans my room to yourself. My only ask is that you clean up after yourself.

I have pretty much anything you would need if you forget something and most home amenities- iron and ironing board, steamer, bathroom essentials, kitchen appliances, picnic basket things, small coolers, umbrellas, grocery bags, 1st aide kit etc. Just ask :)

Marisa was kind, flexible, and always had suggestions for activities or transit options. In fact, our favorite activity from our trip was recommended by Marisa. We recommend her place highly!

Marisa lives in a nice residential area, not too for from downtown Chicago. The flat is clean and nice. Marisa is a great host, she gave me advice as well as showed me around town, I'd be happy to visit again.

Marisa's place was perfect for my stay during lollapalooza. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious, comfortable and clean for a weekend's stay. Marisa was so nice and easy going and made us feel comfortable sharing her space.

Marisa is the best host. She was very communicative and friendly. She was quick with responses and once we checked in we were nothing but happy with our entire stay. Godzilla was also a great host and the cutest and most friendly puppy you will ever meet. I had never stayed in a room at an airbnb and was a little nervous. Once my daughter and I met Marisa, that all went out the window. We felt like we were staying with a friend we had known for years and were so comfortable at her house. Everything was super clean and her house has the feel of a well traveled and eclectic friend. She gave us great tips on where to eat and how to travel in the most cost effective and quickest way possible. We genuinely felt like we made a good friend by the time we checked out and would love to come back again and again. She made this by far one of the best vacations we have ever had. The neighborhood is beautiful and is close to anything we could possibly need while traveling. I could write a novel about how much we loved staying with Marisa and Godzilla. If I could leave a ten star review, I would. Thanks again Marisa! If you pass this place up you are missing out!

Marisa is very accommodating and her place is clean and comfortable. Quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to many great restaurants. We'd definitely stay here again when coming to Chicago.

Super cute apartment! The room was nice & the bed was extremely comfy! Marisa was very helpful & Godzilla was the sweetest pup ever. The only issue we had was getting super hot/super cold at night & sometimes it was a little loud in the apartment building (we are light sleepers) but overall a great place!

Only downfall being that the bed was too comfortable! But she was a great host making us feel at home and comfortable from the start. Perk of free parking close by and her dog is the cutest! Great value for what you pay.

Hi! I'm Marisa. I am originally from Texas, so I say "y'all" quite often and drink copious amounts of iced tea. You can expect southern hospitality en mi casa. I live with my small Chi-weenie, GodZilla. You will fall in love and no, you cant have her.

I love to travel and experience all cultures. I love eating new foods and checking out art shows. My apartment is full of original art. I do have to admit though, I love good game of cards. :)

Hope to meet you soon!!
