Über dieses Inserat

Across the street from CTA train. Runs every 6-10 minutes most of the day, 8-14 minutes late night, best way to get around. Now another reason to stay here: Lagunitas Brewery and Taproom, opened June 2014. If you like beer, it's heaven. Seriously.

We travel a lot, we know what people need. We've been doing this a while, we know what people want. Simply put, we do it right. The reviews speak for themselves.
You can rent an entirely furnished, really cool, comfortable apartment designed for travelers, for a great price. It's a really nice, really big place for one person, big enough for 7 persons (but ONLY one bathroom). Nobody lives in the apartment, it's used solely for vacation rental guests, so it's not full of other people's stuff that you have to deal with.

There is always someone upstairs (well not Always, we go out during the day a lot) if you need anything or have any problems, questions, etc.
We should warn you, we watch the house very protectively: unauthorized overnight guests will be charged $50 per person per night.
The house was built in 1893. That's old in Chicago. It's a large, clean apartment in a large, old house, across the street from a CTA pink line train, so close you can set your watch by it. Takes 15-20 minutes to get downtown on the train, closer than Wrigleyville, Lincoln Park, Logan Square and many more neighborhoods.

Kathleen, Craig, Aaron the cat and Mr.Sanchez the female dog, all live on the top floor in a separate apartment, and are always willing to help you out with anything at all. We don't double book the apartment, it is all yours, with a separate entrance and a separate key to come and go as you want.
The apartment has new central heating and air conditioning. The apartment has super-fast wireless Internet and cable television.

It's a train lover's paradise! Watch the Amtrak, Metra and the freight trains roll through on the north side from the 6' tall windows, or watch the city's CTA trains come and go from the front porch or the yard on the south side! Yes, they make some noise. 16-19 minutes from the city center on the CTA train. Three bikes available if you're adventurous. Fully functional and equipped kitchen in the apartment if you want to cook your own meals. Large supermarket nearby. 1/2 block to Douglas Park. 3 blocks to the brand new Lagunitas Brewery and taproom. Very good Mexican restaurants super-close, the great Italian restaurants in the heart of the Chicago neighborhood are five minutes away with the bikes, less than 20 minutes on foot.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

We also have a huge yard. Use it (weather permitting)

The CTA train station is 30 yards (27 meters) from our front door. Doesn't get any more convenient than that.

Don't sit around all day watching T.V.
Don't hesitate to ask for whatever you need.
Don't be pigs, don't be assholes.
It's OK to be stupid to a certain degree.
Get out there and enjoy the city.

Incredibly creative(Kathleen) and stunningly amusing/disturbing(Craig) Chicago artists who have to work for a living. Dog and cat unemployed. As good Chicagoans, all four of us support Obama (Hillary), so if you're Republican, you might want to stay somewhere else,, uh, maybe Kentucky. Just to clarify, we've been to Kentucky and it's a very nice place to visit. Would never live there.
