After 6 years of hosting we still enjoy making our home a special place…we will be away for a few weeks and welcome guests into our primary residence, the second floor of a 2-unit building and upstairs from our full-time airbnb unit.
This is the upstairs apartment in the same building as our other airbnb unit (see Private Apartment Hip Logan Square). We are currently renting it for a few weeks while we are out of town.
The apartment is on the second floor of a classic Chicago brick 2-flat with 2 bedrooms, kitchen with all large and small appliances (the stove is fancy if you are a cook) that opens to a family room, full marble bathroom and living room. The layout is more open than a typical Chicago 2-flat because we have removed some walls, but there is still plenty of privacy. The front bedroom (queen bed) is very large, with an open archway to the living room. The second bedroom is also large (twin bed), and has a real door. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The back porch is a great place to hang out and has access to our yard. There is laundry in the basement, as well as a place to store bikes if you travel that way. The first floor apartment is always booked, so you might see other airbnb guests if you visit, but each apartment is completely private.
Interaction with guests
This is our primary residence, so we will be away while you are in town.
Other things to note
We are very family friendly (since we have a kid ourselves!), and we have some gear you can borrow while here, including a pack n' play, countertop high chair (sassy seat), booster car seats (sorry no baby car seat), and toys/books galore. If you need something specific, just ask, we can probably borrow it.

I have a small family (partner, Dave and daughter, Frances, 14) and a passion for nature and travel. I prefer a small cafe to a trendy restaurant, and like to spend my free time hiking, biking and gardening (ok, Dave is the gardener). I spent big chunks of my '20s and '30s in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, but travel is harder these days with a school schedule so I have been exploring the States, Mexico and South America little by little.
