About this listing

The apartment is spacious and bright with lots of windows, high ceilings and artistic vibe. A block from the park, the apartment is steps away from popular bars, restaurants, and neighborhoods of Wicker Park and Logan Square. 30-40 mins to downtown.

The space

-Your room is a medium size, with an AC unit in summer--good for one to two people.
-There is one other room in the apartment that is usually also rented to other travelers.
-Please note that this is an older apartment. It has a few quirks, like creaky spots on the floor, and in the winter the radiator heaters make some noise. The bathroom is cleaned very regularly, but there are signs of an old apartment. The place is taken care of and loved. *if you expect hotel setting, this is not the place for you!*

Poppy greeted us with her unique big and bright smile, we felt comfortable immediately when we arrived. Even before arriving there, she took care of us a lot. The room has cozy and warm bedding, my friend and I even didn't want to go out from the bed. haha. Of course her house is not a fancy hotel same as your apartment, you need to learn how to use the apartment. You can find free parking space easily near the building. Neighbors are quite, but still have nice restaurants and bars, we enjoyed a lot. Anyway overall, I had a great time at Poppy's place! Thank you Poppy, I'd definitely visit your place again!

Poppy was an excellent host! She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. She was also quick to respond to communication and incredibly accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here. The room was clean, as was the apartment. The neighborhood was interesting, and it was easy to get around the city from her apartment.

My stay at Poppy's place was a good one. Poppy is kind and is pending about your needs. The apartment is warm, cozy and well located, it's pretty easy to get from anywhere in the city and from the airport. Regarding to the room, is spacious, clean and the bed is really comfy. I had a really good time at Poppy's house and I absolutely recommend it.

Poppy's place was gorgeous and had so much character! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Poppy herself is very friendly and approachable. She was very easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The neighborhood itself seemed pretty safe, but we didn't really walk around too much. The place was also a pretty cheap uber ride away from the city. We loved it!

Poppy was an excellent host. Unfortunately, due to our schedule, we didn't see much of each other. However, she was always attentive. She worked with our crazy arrival and departure times and made our stay possible. The space is what it appears to be in the photos. The apartment is clean and organized and the room is comfortable. We enjoyed our stay!

I'm an actor and artist in my late twenties, originally from Northern California and born in England. I paint, play piano, enjoy people and laughing, watching weirdos like louis ck, and working on DIY theater projects. I keep my space clean, and love making it more flow-y and comfortable whenever I can--come check it out, and enjoy ;)
