Hi! This cozy apartment right next to the lake is perfect for you if you love being close to the water, a quiet neighborhood and an authentic Chicago experience. My place is a unique, eclectic space with treasures and decor I’ve collected from travels through India and Europe, artwork from local artists and an overall creative home feel. Here on the north side, you're close to great international restaurants, and just a short walk to public transportation, you can be downtown within 30min.
My home is a sanctuary! You'll feel comfortable, at peace and can enjoy the creative designs throughout the space. The bedroom is big and bright, with sun shinning through windows from the west and north. There's a large closet with beautiful french doors and a tall dresser (both will have open space for you to use during your visit). You're welcome to explore the bookshelves full of inspiring titles Eastern studies, health, spirituality, and poetry.
The kitchen is decorated with heirloom, hand-embroidered textiles. Here you have everything you need to make home cooked meals inside: pots and pans in the island counter, and dishware in the cabinets. There's also pantry space available to store your things. Make yourself at home and enjoy some tea while you're here in the bright sunny breakfast nook.
The bathroom is tiny, but clean and comfortable. There are extra travel shampoos and conditioner on the shelf in case you forgot yours.
The living room is filled with travel inspirations, musical instruments, and designs from around the world to spark your imagination. Kick back, read a good book, get your work done or simply enjoy yourself in this creative space. You'll find yourself nice and warm with the radiator heating throughout.
You're welcome to use the washer and dryer in the building as well. I have laundry detergent in the kitchen pantry you can use. Just bring your keys and quarters (it's $1.25 per load) out the back door and down the stairs to the basement door marked Laundry.
Guests will have access to the whole apartment through the front and back doors: one private bedroom with living room, bathroom, and kitchen.
My guest will have the entire home. I will be available by phone or email. I also have a co-host living one mile away, if you should need anything. You will be given all their contact information to connect.
When you arrive you will be met by the co-host. They will give you the keys and a walk through to familiarize yourself with my home.
My place is a mini sanctuary, a nest, a cozy home, a place to retreat, rest, work and play mindfully. I ask that you treat it like such. I like to keep this space clear, so please be respectful. Smoking is not permitted.
Also, the most important rule... Make yourself at home and enjoy :-)
