Description

The space

Greetings Travelers!

This listing is organized with Rules for Inquiries First, with Details about the Space below. We've learned a lot in 5 years as SuperHosts and most important to us is attracting the Right Guests to this space. Thanks for clicking!

Inquiries:

*NO PETS and NO KIDS (21+ only)
*Booking Guest must be 25 or older
*COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE with PHOTO of YOU, not your cat, not your kids BEFORE inquiring about booking here.

*We love big groups! Weekend Preference will be given to Large Groups 5-8 with an average age of 25+ and past guests who have reviewed us!

Pro Tip! Profiles:
Here's what hosts want to know when you fill out your profile...
What do you like to do when you travel? Do you travel mostly for fun or on business? Who do you often travel with? Do you have an itinerary or do you like suggestions from your host? About how old are you? Are you uncomfortable with noise or 20 minute walks to transit?
This kind of information allows the host to gauge whether or not you will likely be happy with their accommodations.

Verifications:
Get them when you complete your profile! We require 2 or more to book. Having your verifications done will help you be able to pull the trigger faster.

The GUESTS WE LIKE are respectful, tread lightly types who are easy to get a hold of, can follow a couple of simple rules, and clean up after themselves.
They DO NOT re-arrange all the furniture for some reason, and they ALWAYS LEAVE A REVIEW shortly after their stay.

GUESTS WHO'VE LIKED US best are young folks (in age or at heart), couples, Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties, Yogis, Concert goers, and those who are NOT turned off by stairs or walking or the noise that comes with a main street in a lively neighborhood.


The Space:

Our space is an enormous attic apartment located in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago.

Guests have the ENTIRE APARTMENT (1100 square feet) to themselves. This is a STUDIO-STYLE apartment. The bathroom has a door, but the rest is OPEN PLAN.

We are just 0.7 miles (15-20 minute walk) from the heart of Wicker Park and the Damen Blue Line stop, and just a half mile west of the Clybourn Metra station.

We love to host adult travelers who wish to explore this amazing neighborhood for its restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. We can sleep up to 8 guests without sacrificing too much floor space and 10 guests max.

We have a HAMMOCK for relaxing in, air-conditioning, wireless internet., an outdoor public POOL nearby in summer and TONS of SHOPPING and NIGHTLIFE within walking distance.
There is outdoor space- a small back deck. We have a HOME GYM also; there are mats, videos and other equipment to get in a workout while you're here.

We have a Divvy Bike Share program in Chicago! There's a station right across the street!

We have A large flat screen TV. It has Netflix, and whatever you can get on your laptop.
We have Playstation 3 with Blue-Ray, and an assortment of classic/ cult movies, record player, CD player and MP3 input.
There are lots of board games here too.
There is a book exchange for guests. If you take a book, please leave a book. If you don't have a book to trade, leave something else for future guests like good coffee, chocolate, wine or a game.


There is still free street parking as of December 2015. We can also offer 1 uncovered parking space behind the building with advanced notice.

Guest access

Whole house (3rd floor) except 'off-limits' spaces which will be discussed at check-in.

Be sure to book the proper number of guests or to alert us of changes in your head count as soon as they occur. We are reasonable and know that plans can change. Our goal is to make everyone comfortable during their stay. Do plan accordingly.

Make sure to know your AMs from your PMs when booking flights. Check in is at 3p and due to many back to back bookings, we can not accommodate red-eye flight guests who require early AM check-ins.

Be sure to alert us if you plan to cook while you're here.

Interaction with guests

Minimal interaction typically. I like to check my guests in and provide tips and advice on the neighborhood and put faces to names. I am available by text (preferred), email and phone. I expect to be the first call if any problems occur and will not re-book guests who do things like bypass me and call their own plumber!

The neighbourhood

Excellent RESTAURANTS are all within walking distance including; Coast (Sushi), Red Door (Gastropub), My Pie Pizzeria, Le Bouchon (French), The Bristol (New American), Toast (Breakfast), and Violet Hour (Lounge).

Many of Chicago's NOTABLE BARS are in the Bucktown/ Wicker Park neighborhood including; The Map Room, The Northside, Rainbo Club, Webster's Wine Bar, The Galleria Cabaret, The Charleston, Danny's, and Lottie's Pub.

Getting around


There are a number of bus routes including Damen and Armitage nearby. The Armitage bus will take you to the Lincoln Park Zoo, just west of the LAKEFRONT -which you can then walk to.. The Damen bus takes you straight to the UNITED CENTER for Blackhawks or Bulls games.
We are just 0.7 miles (15-20 minute walk) from the heart of Wicker Park and the Damen Blue Line stop, and just a half mile west of the Clybourn Metra station.

Iris was amazing. She was very helpful and accommodating and the place was just as described in the ad. She made sure there was enough room for 8 of us comfortably and provided us with lots of information. What a great weekend to be there when Chicago won the World Series. I would highly recommend this attic

Iris was super helpful with directions getting to the place and explaining everything upon arrival. Bucktown was awesome and we got to watch the cubs win the NLCS at Wrigley. The space was really nice and enough for 9 men at a bachelor party. She was great with informing us on the checkout procedure on a foggy Sunday morning.

The host had everything you could possibly need in the loft. She was also helpful in providing possible places to go and offered to pick up some groceries upon our arrival. Very nice and welcoming.

My group fell in love with this place! This place is wonderful for large groups and it's such a unique space that you're going to want to spend more time than you probably anticipated in this apartment. Our host was friendly and communicative. I couldn't have asked for a better AirBnB experience.

Hosting me?
I am a tidy and respectful guest. As a host, I love my guests who leave little trace of their stay and I like to do same when I'm traveling. I mostly travel with my fiancé. We can't wait to meet you.
