Our place is close to Bridgeport Coffeehouse, Maria's Bar/Kimski, Antique Taco, multiple grocery stores and a great park with playground. You’ll love it because of the coziness and the proximity to downtown. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and furry friends (small pets). Street parking is free, and we are both readily available via phone or in person (we live just upstairs).

The space

The apartment is 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. An air mattress can be set up in the living room upon request. The eat-in kitchen is fully stocked with a stove, fridge, pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, and blender. Sheets and towels as well as basic toiletries are provided.

Guest access

Guests have full run of the apartment. Additionally, you'll have access to the front yard (where we ask that smoking be confined to) as well as the back porch area for laundry. Detergent is provided.

Interaction with guests

We own the building and live in the upstairs unit, so unless we are traveling will be available as needed. If you'd like to talk or ask questions about the area or things to do in Chicago we are more than happy to accommodate. Otherwise we're happy to leave you to enjoy the space on your own.

Other things to note

Please note we have 2 small dogs upstairs (Shih Tzu and a Toy Poodle). Teddy and Mojo are very friendly and mostly quiet, but you may occasionally hear them bark when they are excited. For this reason we provide ear plugs for all guests, these are located in a jar under the bathroom sink.

Condo was in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Not too far away from the places we wanted to see.

We had a great stay at Gen & Mark's apartment. The place is lovely and really well equipped - they have thought of everything to make your stay as pleasant and easy as possible from a well equipped kitchen to a book library and lots of helpful information on the area. Check in was easy, communication was great and very quick when we had any questions and we were really happy with the location - we didn't have a car but found the walk to the supermarket, train station etc absolutely fine. Unfortunately we weren't in Chicago long enough to explore Bridgeport as much as we'd have liked as we were mainly downtown but it seemed like a lovely neighbourhood. Oh, and we had two young children with us so the use of the laundry really made me happy (sad but true!). Would definitely recommend staying here!

My friend and I enjoyed staying at Gen and Mark's place. The area was quiet and nice after being out all day. Gen was very helpful and communicated everything well. Overall it was a great experience while we were visiting for a music festival!

I greatly enjoyed my stay! Though not the most walkable, the neighborhood was safe and had a couple fun places within walking distance (a bar and a coffee shop). The place itself was clean and spacious. Gen and Mark were wonderful hosts!

Awesome and affordable place to stay just outside downtown. Gen, Teddy and Mojo were there to greet us at check in and explain everything about the house. The house itself was clean and had basic amenities like towels and soaps. She's very responsive to text during your stay. The location was great: close to public transportation but also relatively cheap to uber to downtown. It's a quiet neighborhood with some really good places to eat in walking distance - really recommend nana. Would definitely recommend to anyone that they stay here!

We had a wonderful time at Gen and Marks place. Gen greeted us upon our arrival and gave a tour of the house. The place is clean and cosy. You will definitely need a car to get to the metro, Chinatown or downtown, but Gen place has the most reasonable price when it comes down to cost saving.

Chicagoans who love to get out of the city and explore new places every chance we get.

Very clean. Love our sleep. Always up for new experiences and adventures. We generally prefer the local scene to the tourist one. Our favorite trips have involved good people, good food and great views.

We recently purchased our first home and look forward to hosting other Airbnb members on our own turf. We've had some wonderful experiences using this service, and are excited to pay it forward so others can enjoy Chicago as much as we do!
