Guest access

If you are the culinary kind, our kitchen has all the tools you'll need for you to feel right at home. When the weather is accommodating, you are welcome to relax out on the back deck or fire up the grill and dine al fresco.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts are yogis who practice regularly. (We will do our best to keep the meditating to a purr while your are catching your zzzzs.) If you are a kind and honest person you will be in good company.

The neighbourhood

"Heart of Chicago" has a rich ethnic heritage. Established at the end of the 19th century, it was first inhabited by the Bohemian working class. Since then it has experienced the richness of an Italian population and more recently Hispanic. Our house is right around the corner from a handful of some of the remaining old school Italian restaurants and taquerias can be found on most corners.

Other things to note

Since the Angel's Loft is a finished attic, at times it can be warmer than the rest of the house. A fan is provided for your comfort.

Guest Requirements:
Are you an angel? Since this room is directly located above another bedroom it is imperative that any guest who choose this room be light on their feet, quiet-natured and have a heightened awareness of others. Shoes must be left on the stair landing of the loft prior to entry. Since there is not a door to close off the loft, you will be visited by the kitty cat host at his leisure.

We look forward to hosting you in this most amazing city. While the architecture is incredible and the food is world-reknown, what makes this city unique are its people. Welcome to Chicago.

Casa Corazon tops the charts in more ways than one. If you want to spend your time in Chicago in a cool space with an even cooler host, look no further. Amanda was warm and accommodating and gave excellent recommendations. The CTA Pink Line is only a few blocks away for when you want to venture downtown, and there are restaurants and bars just around the corner.

Amanda was very friendly and welcoming: I booked pretty much te day before I left for Chicago and wasn't even sure where I would stay during my first time in the city. The proximity to the downtown area and ease of access all around was great. Above all, her place is super professionally laid out: with little place cards for pertinent information like wifi, or towels being set up already, the experience was even better than some high end hotels. Keep it up, Amanda :)

I am an artist with a love for language and new cultural experiences. I am kind and warm with a preference for books over devices and people over profiles.
