About this listing
Have questions? Send your "Inquiry"! I'm flexible, as is this newly-decorated 3BR apartment. Whether family or business plans lead you to Chicagoland, you'll find this homebase in a quiet, residential area of NW Chicago comfy, private and accessible.
Pack light! Except for food and personal items, this house is equipped! Our fully furnished 3 bedroom, 1 bath garden apartment is peaceful and ready to be your temporary home. A roomy 1040 square feet, the space is allergy-free and freshly renovated, including new carpet and tile floors. It has separate access from a shared lobby with two upper level apartments.
Located in a quiet residential neighborhood just over the northern edge of Oak Park, the city center is also easily accessible by car or public transit. Here you'll have the best of both worlds!
Up to eight guests can be accommodated in the apartment: two in each of 3 bedrooms (one with a double bed, and another a queen), and the third bedroom a "flex" room, set up either with 2 twin-XL beds, or 1 king -- your choice. The remaining two people can use the double bed futon in the living room. For them, there is an extra closet available in an adjacent room. For your baby's sleeping comfort, I have a Graco Pack N Play Playard with optional bassinet and toy bar, which can be setup wherever you want except the Poppy Room. Note: All linens, blankets, towels, etc. are provided.
Because I have concerns about mattress and pillow protection, you won't need to: each mattress is fully sealed in a bedbug-dust allergen-waterproof cover and then topped with a cushiony waterproof mattress pad, with pillows also encased in soft, dust allergen-bedbug-waterproof protective covers. Sleep easy and leave those worries behind.
This apartment is comfortably furnished with a kitchen equipped with the basics-- including cook/bakeware, a 14" carbon steel wok, a 12 cup/single cup coffee brewer, tea kettles and infusion teapot, blender, a 9-speed hand mixer, storage containers, and table service, both dish and hand soaps, paper towels, linens, and napkins. Although it requires a change in set-up, it is possible to have a sit-down meal for eight around the fully extended dining table with cloth napkins and tablecloths provided. You also have private laundry room access (washer, dryer, ironing board and iron, laundry detergent and dryer sheets). Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion, liquid soap, etc. are also provided in the bathroom. Everything has been arranged for your comfort and convenience!
You will have access to the entire apartment and all the privacy you desire. The exit door off the laundry room into the backyard, however, is for emergency use only. There is a dog living in an upstairs unit here that has use of that area.
Interaction with guests
I will be living one floor above you, and am most likely available throughout your stay. Just call if you need me!
Other things to note
This house was built in 1930, and you may find that more sound passes between the floors than you are used to. Be courteous for those above you, and we will be courteous for you.

Originally from the California Sierra Nevadas, I remember what it was like to be new to Chicago. When I arrived about eleven years ago, lost — so many friendly people helped me find my way around until I learned to be at home in the city. Now recently retired, it's my turn to be the helper for newcomers here on a visit. Usually busy in my home — a popular stopover with both friends and grandkids, I am known for incessant baking, and being perpetually prepared to share a hot pot of coffee with whomever stops by.
I am offering you the peace I enjoy and a comfortable, private stay here without interference. If you should need anything, however, do not hesitate to message me. Most likely I'm upstairs and available to answer any questions or concerns—or even just to chat! I want you to have a relaxed experience here, conveniently comfortable and at home away from home.
