The space

The space is very bright and filled with plants and eclectic decorations. It is 2 stories, with the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms being on separate levels. The bedroom has a larger closet and table in it that can be used as a desk.

Guest access

The guests will have access to the fully stocked kitchen, living room with cable TV and free washer/dryer. There is also a deck with city views and a landscaped backyard with grill and fountain to enjoy.

Interaction with guests

I usually interact with guests as much or as little as they want. I'm pretty busy but can be found in the evenings sometimes around the house. I'm also pretty laid back, but can offer great advice about Chicago nightlife & transportation if needed.

The neighbourhood

I Love living in Ukrainian Village! It is full of cute restaurants and bars and shops to explore. There is a grocery store and pharmacy within walking distance. Also, it is close to several hospitals and sporting venues if you want to catch a game. The neighborhood itself is very central in Chicago, has several tree-lined side streets and is very SAFE.

Getting around

There are 4 bus lines very close to the house that can get you just about anywhere you want to go. There are close bike rentals and it is close to the major expressways. The house also has ample, free, no-permit street parking all around.

Other things to note

I infrequently might have a couple of friends over to make dinner, drink wine or watch a movie. If this would bother you, then this space might not be for you. The house is 420 friendly, but I ask that you please smoke cigarettes outside on the porch. Also, there are 2 wonderful cats that live here as well - they are pretty chill and usually hang in my room, but you might see them around.

Jennifer was the loveliest host. Her house oozes friendliness and coziness. The neighborhood is very close to the hip wicker park and the blue line to downtown. The accommodations are quite comfortable and Jennifer's cats are quite friendly too--especially the very sociable Miss Jefferson. It was a pleasure staying here.

Don't stay here as the place is filthy. I booked based on the reviews, but think she let the place go and did no cleaning. I hope I can post pictures of the terribly unsanitary conditions. The host stated she'd refund me, but has not. I have a resolution case with airbnb due to this woman, and I've been told she'll be shut down. The most disgusting reservation experience of my life.

Response from Jennifer:
Wow! I'm shocked and speechless. The house was just thoroughly cleaned by a professional cleaning person immediately before Anna's arrival. This professional cleaning person is the same one I have used on BOTH of my Airbnb rentals for HUNDREDS of guests over SEVERAL years of being an Airbnb host and no one has ever called my home "filthy." What Anna failed to mention is that she also refused to leave my home. She stated that she was tired and wanted to "put her feet up." I was out of town and had to contact the neighbors, Airbnb & finally the POLICE to see if she had vacated as I instructed. It was truly a nightmare. Regarding the money dispute: I was instructed by Airbnb to not speak directly anymore with Anna, but rather let them handle it in their resolution center. She still continues today to call me during work hours on my personal cell phone. I have been an Airbnb host since the beginning and have had 99% positive experiences with guests. This 1%, this 1 person, has me perplexed about her ulterior motives. Please let the voices of hundred's of positive reviews speak loudly!! I am very upset and saddened by these false allegations.

We saw Jennifer initially after checking in, but not much after that. She was more than willing to help us find local restaurants and activities to do and her neighborhood was close to public transport at and easily accessible to the city

This is a comfortable house with fanciful decorating in a very interesting and safe neighborhood. Jennifer was on top of all hosting needs.

I had such a wonderful stay and Jen's place. She was extremely accommodating and even let me hang out an extra night when my flight was cancelled. Her place is super cute and she has some great recommendations for cool places to check out in Chicago. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

I'm from Chicago, IL and I work in medical device sales. I love music, film, animals and travel. I'm pretty laid back and enjoy just hanging out with some wine and good friends.
I suppose I should add that I loved using Airbnb so much, that I have put my beloved home in Chicago up for rent on this sight. So far I have had the pleasure to meet some really nice, cool & interesting people who enjoy staying at my old home as much as I did!! Safe travels everyone. :)
