The space

We live in a spacious two-bedroom with our chocolate lab, Sully (who will NOT be there during your stay). Newly renovated with high-quality appliances, new wood floors and a fresh coat of paint, bring this sunny nook of the city a calming, cheerful appeal.

You will enjoy our comfortable living room and spacious guest bedroom, with new furnishings and hand-built shelving. Our fun kitchen contains a drop-down ironing/cutting board for extra counter space, and a fully-stocked pantry at your disposal.

Our main bedroom includes a queen size bed with large windows for lovely morning light. Our second bedroom includes a comfortable full-size futon bed with space for hanging clothes. We also have a blow-up mattress that fits comfortably next to the futon, should you have need for the 3rd bed.

Guest access

You will have access to every part of our space. Our nicely renovated and well-stocked kitchen is great for those who like to cook!

Interaction with guests

My wife, Georgette, and I will be likely not be in the city during your stay. We are easily contactable via text and phone call, should you have any issues during your stay. In the off chance that there is an emergency, we have wonderful neighbors that would be happy to assist you.

The neighbourhood

Since moving here, we have absolutely fallen in love with this neighborhood. We have neighbors who you'll often see hanging out in their lawns and barbecuing (when weather permits). Our street is tree-lined and cool in the summer. There's a great park within walking distance that includes tennis courts, baseball fields and a play area for kids. Unlike many Chicago parks, this one is never overcrowded, so is great for an afternoon picnic or swing.

But in our opinion, the best thing about our neighborhood are the many restaurants scattered about. Kuma's is a Chicago favorite of EVERYONE'S and is only a couple blocks West. We have an excellent Mexican restaurant with a range of delicious and inexpensive tacos. We also have some really nice sushi, decent barbeque, a tiki bar with an excellent patio and great food, and our new favorite Honey-Butter Fried Chicken, which serves, well, that (among many other delicious delectables).

Getting around

As far as public transportation goes, this area is pretty darn good (if you ever decide to leave). You can walk a block and hop on the 77 Belmont bus (EASY BUS TO WRIGLEY!) to either the Red Line or the Blue Line. Red takes you downtown and farther north (as well as to Wrigley Field - only a stop away) and Blue takes you downtown and farther northwest to O'Hare. Should you decide to go far south, we're only a few short blocks from the 49 Western Avenue bus, which will take you as far south as 79th Street.

Other things to note

We do not have cable, but we DO have a Netflix account and a movie collection, so you're welcome to enjoy a quite evening in if that suits you.

House Rules

We have a great little portable speaker that we simply ask not be played too loud for the neighbors. Our downstairs neighbors go to bed at 10pm and wake up at 3am, so keeping the noise down at that time is ideal.

Other than that, enjoy our space! We simply ask that you treat our home with respect.

Zoe was an amazing host! This was my first time using Airbnb and I can say I was impressed with how easy the process was. Zoe's apartment was clean and very accommodating. She answered all my questions in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends.

Zoe answered my questions and request to rent her cozy apartment right away. She gave a lot of info about the area and made us feel welcome for our weekend visit. Clean apartment, clean sheets, clean towels, coffee at the ready, and even a chocolate on the pillow! Many signs of a great host! She was out of town herself so texted me all the info about getting the key, etc. which worked out just fine. In short, I would highly recommend staying here and we would again if Zoe would be so kind to have us back. Great price and great location. Exactly what we needed. We were in town for a weekend gig and were pleasantly surprised that The Beer Temple ( was right down the street, and to boot The Pork Shoppe ( Also a lot of other great restaurants we weren't able to try due to time.

Le logement de Zoé est très bien située. il est tout proche de la rue BELMONT ou passe fréquemment le bus 77. L'appartement est joliment décoré. Il est très fonctionnel et très propre. Le quartier est très calme. si un jour, je reviens à Chicago, j'aurai plaisir à revenir dans l'appartement de Zoé.Merci pour votre gentillesse.
