A spacious single-family home; minutes away from Midway Airport (train station), within walking distance from gorgeous and dog-friendly parks, and walking distance of plentiful of supermarkets and convenience stores. Downtown isn't far either!

The space
The entire room is yours to use! Just be respectful and sanitary of the room -- common sense! As you can see, the room is highly decorated with an assorted and variety of posters. You'll have access to a small library of books; ranging from languages to college textbooks that'll fiddle your interest should you feel like staying indoors. The mattress is a loft-style full-size bed, accompanied with a mini-office beneath it. There's also a whiteboard if you feel like writing things down from your itinerary to thoughts throughout your stay in the city. There's a 29" TV with a VGA connection should you want to work with a dual-monitor setup, or if you want to watch a movie on a bigger screen. There's a 2.1 home theater setup, and it's pretty loud to be honest. It's hooked directly to the TV so whatever content you're viewing on the TV it'll be nice, smooth, and loud. I've also a Roku 3 attached to the TV; so you can stream content from your device onto the TV, stream media from massive cloud server (12 TB's), or watch videos on native apps like Netflix or Hulu via the Roku 3. It's also got an auxiliary (earphones or headphones plug) connection, so that you can binge watch your favorite show without disturbing others at night. Or if you're too ashamed to openly watch My Little Pony, then you can watch it at your discretion.

For families or groups of three, PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT PRICING. I am more than happy to accommodate 3 people into the room should you be staying with us. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU ASK ABOUT THIS SHOULD YOU WANT THE THIRD PERSON TO STAY WITH US, as we need to see how we can accommodate your +3.

Please note that for safety and security reasons there is a NEST indoor camera planted at the MAIN ENTRANCE of the house, right by the top window. As soon as you enter the house you will see it with a glowing green dot. This is to ensure people arrive on time, properly, and safe & sound.

Where you’ll be

Chicago, Illinois, United States

Worried about safety? Not an issue! The neighborhood is relatively safe, so you don't have to worry about that gun violence/murders you hear media grossly exaggerated on the news. There are plentiful of grocers and supermarkets in case you feel like cooking -- cheaper and as good as a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. Are you also worried about parking your car? Don't sweat it! This is an entirely blue-collar family neighborhood, so you'll see neighbors and folks out and about on the streets attending to their houses or chatting. Since most homes are family owned, you'll mostly see people outdoors chit-chatting away. There's also 2 parks nearby in case you feel like relaxing and enjoying some green; by green I mean nature-like feel... You can also go out for a job; some guests often jog around Midway Airport for some exercise. There's ton of Mexican food should you get hungry, and when I mean Mexican food, I'm talking about authentic real experience Mexican food just the way mama use to make it!

During your stay

IMPORTANT: I travel a lot, so sometimes my folks will be taking care of your needs. We are very FLEXIBLE with check-in and check-out times. Depending on the schedule for our rooms, you can check-in/check-out earlier/later. It is IMPORTANT that you communicate with us your arrival times so that we can make your experience/stay absolutely amazing. Please text my mom and myself or either of us, preferably both so that we're on top of our game to best make you feel at home.


ALSO IMPORTANT: We have two dogs on the floor you'll be staying. Sometimes they bark and sometimes they're loud, but it's nothing beyond our control. They easily get along with everyone. So if dogs are a bit of a problem, we will try out best to keep them at a distance. If you're allergic to dogs, then this our home might be a bit difficult for you. Please take that into consideration prior to booking with us. If you love dogs? Perfect! My dogs will absolutely love you!
