Guest access
PLEASE READ IN FULL BELOW: IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR YOUR SAFETY. SHARE THIS WITH ALL GUESTS.

You can use the whole home. Please remember my home and Wicker Park are in an Urban Environment. Please be smart and be aware of your surroundings.

Please do not open the windows in the front of the house. They are hard to get closed and locked. When I want air, I usually leave the front door open with the iron gate closed and locked. I do not leave any windows open when I leave the house EVER, including the side windows. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT ALL WINDOWS AND DOORS ARE LOCKED WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE. I usually leave the blinds closed also when I leave and the the front porch light on when I anticipate coming in after dark. Remember this is a inner city Urban Environment. Do not leave the home or any of your belongings unattended. ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS and DO NOT LET PASSER-BY'S INTO THE HOME, ESPECIALLY IF YOU YOUR ARE ALONE. I am sorry to have to say this, but Especially for women even if you are not alone.

*** FYI, I do hang out, talk and have drinks with my neighbors and passer-by's, as this is one of the fun and interesting parts of living in Wicker Park and having a "stoop" in front to sit on. Chillin' on the stoop and socializing is old school Chicago. I am born and raised and still do not invite people in my home unless I know them. I do go in an make people drinks and get beers and bring them out to people. Trust me, this is the way to do it. It is totally appropriate to tell people, they cannot come in, even to use the bathroom. That is how things go missing and problems start.

THERE IS AN ALARM SECURITY CAMERA OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR. The alarm is not active while guests are staying. The host can view the camera feed remotely. There are no cameras or audio devices in the home. There are motion sensors related to the alarm and only used when the alarm is activated.

Other things to note
Only well reviewed guests will be approved. Guests without a past host review record are not going to be approved.

For 3 to 4 guests it is $30 additional per guest per night. You can have one or two queen aero beds with nice clean bedding supplied. The Aero Beds are deluxe and autofill with electric pump. We supply the beds and all bedding will be set out as long as we know in advance. The guests will set up the beds, as most people want the space open when they are not sleeping.

Sleeping on my couches is prohibited. This is how I keep my home nice and fresh. THIS IS STRICTLY ENFORCED.

When you are done, please deflate the beds and put the sheets in a pile. Fold the blankets and leave them on the sofa. And return the Aero beds to where you found them.

Thank you,

Dan

** Permit Parking Available on Street. Advance Notice to Host Required. $15 per 24 hour period. You must arrange in advance with the host.

Check out the below links on Wicker Park and Bucktown. I have lived, worked and owned property in Wicker Park, Ukranian Village and Bucktown since 1997. My friends and I have participated in the transformation to where the neighborhood is now. The diversity of Wicker Park and Bucktown is unparalleled in Chicago.

Personal Favorites: Big Star. Best authentic tacos, guacamole and patio around. It there is a wait for an outside table, put your name on the list and hit the bar while you wait. Watch the neighborhood unfold in front of you. Damen Ave., just south of Milwaukee Ave. (at the Damen Blue Line Stop). 5-10 minutes walk from the house.

Black Bear: Spanish Tapas on Division St. Upscale vibe, great food, beer and wine list. Outdoor seating. There is a club upstairs also that is happening later at night.

Bangers and Lace: English/Hipster bar. Huge beer and craft cocktail selection. Outdoor seating. The bartenders spin their own vinyl. Division St. 5 minute walk from my house, seems to be more 10-15 minutes on the way home for some reason.

I have begun living in both of my two favorite cities for culture, entertainment and leisure. The extraordinary contrast of culture and lifestyles in these two cities reflects what my friends and family would say fit the wide array of interests I have, or at least some of them. I have traveled extensively and love to share local treasures of my cities with business and leisure travelers. Also, my guest's experience is of my focus. I have people from all over the world staying for business and pleasure. In order to tailor every guest's stays, I have helped out guests with simple requests to those that are a bit unusual. Please take the time to read my reviews. Remember, you get what you pay for. Dollar for Dollar, my homes are the best in show. Please message me if you have any questions or concerns about booking a stay. Also, sometimes my calendar may not be open a month or more in the future due to my dynamic schedule. If there are dates you are interested in and they are not available, please send me a message and we can discuss making them available for your. I only accept well reviewed guests, as both of these homes are my personal residences.
