Nestled at the top of a 3-flat walk up & flooded with natural light, my place is a mellow oasis in bustling Wicker Park. It's only a 10 min stroll from the Damen Blue Line stop with easy access to downtown and Logan Square. And, steps from the 606.

The space

A full sized bed and light blocking shade makes for a comfortable night's sleep. The Nest thermostat ensures an even temperature. In your private bathroom you'll find soap, shampoo, conditioner and fresh towels. You also have access to the washer/dryer. My mid-century modern inspired living space has an turntable and a growing vinyl collection, speakers, a sub, and a 55” Samsung curved LED TV with HBO Go, Netflix, and Hulu via Apple TV. The living room makes for a perfect spot to chill out on a lazy day or get the energy going before you hit the always bumpin’ night scene. The kitchen is fully stocked and I strive for minimalism in this area so it's easy to navigate. There are also a few grocery stores within walking distance. I deep clean the entire apartment before guests arrive. There's also plenty of free street parking no permits necessary. I usually find a spot directly in front of my place.

Guest access

You'll have your own private bedroom and bathroom and the common areas, which include the kitchen, washer/dryer, living room and deck.

Interaction with guests

I'm happy to provide recommendations for food, drink, music venues etc. I've lived in the area for a while and know what's good. It's best to ask for these before your stay so I have time to respond. There have been times where I can take my guests out depending on the week. I recently took a more demanding job so it may take me a bit to get back to you and I may not be around as much as other hosts.

As far as food and drink goes, what's mine is yours. I keep the place stocked with coffee, wine, beer, fruit and frozen pizza at the minimum (ya know, the essentials).

There's lots to do in the city and my immediate neighborhood. I'm usually out and about. When I am home I'm pretty quiet.

Emily's place was great! For the price, you cannot really beat the value. The location was awesome, as you are a very short walk to lot's of bars and restaurants, and also the blue line. Check in was easy, apartment was comfortable, and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Chicago.

Emily's place was the perfect home away from home for our first trip to Chicago. It was in superb condition- extremely clean and cozy. I loved the mid century style with a boho feel. The best part was definitely the cute little porch/she has which made a perfect area for relaxing with a beer. The location was around the corner from some of the coolest little restaurant/bars in wicker park. Safe enough area to walk around at night. She was quick to answer any questions we had. We didn't run into her often but she was friendly and welcoming when we did. We didn't want to leave. Would definitely try to stay here again if/when I come back! Thanks Emily :)

We enjoyed our stay at Emily's! A great walkable neighborhood, comfortable bed and private bath were all great! Easily bikable or the blue line to downtown activities.

A perfect 5 block distance from the busy hub of the north/damen intersection. I was in town for a conference and didn't run into Emily at all but she was in touch and made sure there were no problems. Would stay here again no question.

Emma was a fantastic host and her place was amazing. The neighborhood was very safe and within walking distance of many stores and restaurants. I would recommend her house to anyone

I travel to explore and expand my perspective. When I head out I hit music venues, bars and restaurants. At home I keep quiet. Happy to provide recommendations for good eats, music and ways to waste your day.
