Should your path bring you to Chicago for business at McCormick Place, a sports event at Soldier Field, the Chicago Marathon, a weekend getaway, or a Chicago-based vacation, I would love to be your host. My homes are inviting, spacious and comfortable and I really enjoy making sure that my guests are comfortable and happy.
I enjoy the arts, architecture, real estate, infrastructure, learning new languages and travel. I choose to spend my spare time traveling and hosting domestic/foreign travelers. Although I'm a Chicago-native and have lived in several neighborhoods, I still marvel at the sheer beauty of this city and continually delight in discovering new facets. If you've never been here before, get ready to be amazed!
The best part of Airbnb hosting is meeting people from all over the world, making new friendships and sharing cultural experiences. Travel is my greatest passion, so far I've journeyed to China, Japan, France, Italy, Spain, England, Mexico, Canada, many beautiful islands and 49 of the 50 united states. My travel style is mostly independent, adventurous/spontaneous as I'm more inclined to seek the unbeaten path. Having said that, I toured China with a group of 20 people and really enjoyed the experience because we all bonded so well and China was simply amazing, it left an indelible impression on me..best trip ever.
My motto is follow the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I expect my guests to be clean, courteous and respectful of me and house rules. In return, I will gladly and graciously welcome you to my home.
