We live in a great urban location in Lincoln Park Chicago, sandwiched between Clark Street and Lake Shore Drive, near all public transport to chicago sights, walk distance to bars, restaurants and zoo. We have one of the highest walking scores in the U.S. and are very safe to walk around even at night for women.
We love practicing the art of hospitality and love to travel airbnb ourselves. The flat has in total four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The flat will be shared with at least one roommate, maybe more. Make yourself at home in the kitchen and large dining room, or front room, we give you keys, and are happy to help you, chat a bit and/or give you space as you need. This room is perfect for a single traveler.
The flat is not too noisy, so you can get a good nights sleep, as I'm sure you will be out all day, we usually are.

Our area is very safe, walkable, and in short public transport of any great part of the city. Lots of bars, and a variety or eateries, fancy or cheap. Beautiful old multiple million dollar homes and college students share the town. Walk to the lake, north pond, the nature center, or the zoo.

The whole house is shared, make yourself at home. I often become friends with many of the travelers who stay here. We keep up with each other on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and LinkedIn
I travel enough to understand the nuances of guest interaction. I love having guests! I can leave you alone, or chat and help you around town, share a meal, it's up to your needs. I tag team the hosting/welcome duties with my friend Lisa, and we both enjoy taking the time to help travelers as they need.
BUSINESS TRAVERS: I host a ton people in Chicago for all kinds of interesting business. My apartment is exceptionally huge which gives everyone plenty of space. We have blazing fast internet, wireless printing and two co-working spaces that work really well for getting stuff done!
Respect others. There will usually be 3 people in the house (myself, you and another Airbnb guest). I have no cable television but, do have blazing fast wireless internet. We are a non-party house. Lots of bars and places to go to however, coming in very late is perfectly fine (and expected!).
I've found the house is the perfect place for people extending business trips for a few days of tourism, or long term guests doing residencies, internships or other things making the world a bit better. 70-80% of my guests are international.
While, Airbnb is a great value...I've found people who are more comfortable in hotels, but just want to save money...they typically find sharing a home with others less enjoyable. This makes it less enjoyable for my other guests in the home also. So, please consider this before booking :)
Hi, I'm Jimmy. I've been hosting in my apartment for many years. I've been to both Airbnb host conferences and use Airbnb's while I'm traveling the globe for work with my tech-based charity. Glocal is a new platform making community organizing simple, measurable and sustainable.
I love hosting my home and sharing it, and have found that my guests feel more comfortable knowing that I've enjoyed Airbnb stays in Shanghai, London, Wales, Nicaragua, Thailand, Calgary, South Africa, Paris and all over the U.S.A. I understand the need for an affordable home away from home and love to provide that.
