About this listing

Nestled at the top of a 3-flat walk up & flooded with natural light, my place is a mellow oasis in bustling Wicker Park. It's only a 10 min stroll from the Damen Blue Line stop with easy access to downtown and Logan Square. And, steps from the 606.

The space

A full sized bed and light blocking shade makes for a comfortable night's sleep. The Nest thermostat ensures an even temperature. In your private bathroom you'll find soap, shampoo, conditioner and fresh towels. You also have access to the washer/dryer. My mid-century modern inspired living space has an turntable and a growing vinyl collection, speakers, a sub, and a 55” Samsung curved LED TV with HBO Go, Netflix, and Hulu via Apple TV. The living room makes for a perfect spot to chill out on a lazy day or get the energy going before you hit the always bumpin’ night scene. The kitchen is fully stocked and I strive for minimalism in this area so it's easy to navigate. There are also a few grocery stores within walking distance. I deep clean the entire apartment before guests arrive. There's also plenty of free street parking no permits necessary. I usually find a spot directly in front of my place.

Guest access

You'll have your own private bedroom and bathroom and the common areas, which include the kitchen, washer/dryer, living room and deck.

Interaction with guests

I'm happy to provide recommendations for food, drink, music venues etc. I've lived in the area for a while and now what's good. It's best to ask for these before your stay so I have time to respond. There have been times where I can take my guests out depending on the week. I recently took a more demanding job so it may take me a bit to get back to you and I may not be around as much as other hosts.

As far as food and drink goes, what's mine is yours. I keep the place stocked with coffee, wine, beer, fruit and frozen pizza at the minimum (ya know, the essentials).

There's lots to do in the city and my immediate neighborhood. I'm usually out and about. When I am home I'm pretty quiet.

Emma was a fantastic host and her place was amazing. The neighborhood was very safe and within walking distance of many stores and restaurants. I would recommend her house to anyone

Close to Downtown but Great place to get away from the city. Close to blue line, 5-7 minute walk. 20 minutes you can be in the heart of the city. Emily was helpful with suggestions for site seeing. Loved sitting on the balcony and relaxing. Great neighborhood.

Emily's apartment worked well for our short trip to the city - close to public transit & we felt very safe as 2 single females walking in the neighborhood at night. Emily was available for any questions we had.

We enjoyed her roomy, nicely decorated flat and deck. Great neighborhood -- wish our journey there had been longer.

Emily's place was a neat flat in a quiet neighborhood adjacent to trendy Wicker Park. Her place and amenities were great - a blend of "boho modern". We were in and out for a wedding and an event for the long weekend, and only ran into Emily once. Communication was minimal, but we understood that to be out of respect for privacy and independence. All in all, worked out great! Would recommend.

I had a great time at Emily's place. It was very central, very comfortable, and in a good neighbourhood. Emily was easy to talk to and an all-round great host. Would definitely stay here again if I return to chicago!

I travel to explore and expand my perspective.

When I head out I hit music venues, bars and restaurants. At home I keep quiet.

Happy to provide recommendations for good eats, music and ways to waste your day.
