We are a couple who are avid travelers ourselves (6 continents!) and we decided to open our home to others while we are away. We live here full time when we are not out of town, so this explains our 3 day minimum stay.
We offer our humble home to those who seek solitude or just a place to call home away from home while they enjoy and experience Chicago, our favorite city in the world! Besides the hustle and bustle of our lively neighborhood, a peaceful and relaxing environment awaits you.
Large, beautifully decorated living room with comfortable couch for third guest to sleep on, 42 inch Plasma TV with Cable, Internet tv, 24 hour gym in building. Fully stocked kitchen. Queen Tempurpedic Bed, super comfortable!
- lightly cook in our fully equipped, fully stocked kitchen. Light breakfast food available such as French pressed coffee, tea, toasts and yogurt.
-Enjoy a hot bath with candle lights and a glass of wine while playing your favorite playlist over the Bose wireless speaker.
-Learn to meditate or read about spirituality in the meditation area, or just simply enjoy tea while reading books or self reflecting. Books and reading materials are for ALL!
-relax in our couch while watching spiritual documentaries or latest movies from internet tv Amazon Prime or our highly recommended spiritual channel Gaia TV.
- when staying in, a couple can unwind, connect, and have fun by playing with our board games collection.
Entire Apartment, including use of Apple computer, and 24 hour gym and world market attached to the building. WIFI ready!
We will be away, but guests can contact us if needed.
Uptown neighborhood is a social and cultural melting pot of Chicago, where people from all different walks of life co exist and live harmoniously despite of social statuses and differences. I am an active community volunteer and I am proud of my community and its people! There's a local church, halfway houses, and outreach programs near the apartment building and it may be a cultural shock for some that are not used to seeing the flip side of a posh and fancy neighborhoods in Chicago. People and strangers (including me!) talk to each other on the streets, and a bustling sound can be heard from my apartment as I am on the second floor. I am one of those people that loves the sound of a busy city! If you like a "quiet" neighborhood then this is not for you. If you love the reality of a blended community with all the perks of easy access to timeless and unique places, then a memorable heartwarming experience awaits you :)
I expect my guest to leave happier than when they first arrive! Please enjoy the apartment, read books, kick back and relax and watch tv. Or yes you can even invite your trusted friends over. Oh, and the massaging vibrating thempurpedic bed is Heaven :)
We live a very busy lifestyle so our home is our sanctuary. We are well traveled people (6 continents!) and our travel collection can be enjoyed in our worldly home. We are practicing Buddhists so we have a sacred space for meditation or just an area to relax and read a good book.
This is our home, so we decided to have a four night minimum that will be enough for us to share our home and go on trips ourselves :)
