Completed in 1927, my place reflects classic Gothic style and Romantic views of the middle ages. Enjoy a truly memorable and fun shared housing experience in a historic castle! Walk to shopping, transport, entertainment, beach, and fine & casual dining options. Safe neighborhood close to Loyola and Northwestern Universities.

The space

This is a private room with a comfortable memory-foam bed at my well appointed bright top-level, shared living space. Large windows provide you with picturesque neighborhood views and fill the rooms with natural light. My place is located at one of the few historic castles in Chicago, and features rooms with A/C, memory foam beds, stylish living room, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, central heat, free wi-fi, coin-operated laundry facilities for your convenience and a fully stocked kitchen for your best shared housing experience.

Guest access

The spaces are cleaned before your arrival, toiletries, fresh linens and towels are provided. Please refer to my Guidebook for transportation, groceries, restaurants, entertainment, nightlife and recreation near by.

Check in & Check out - Self check in and self check out are provided for your convenience and flexibility. Check in is anytime after 3PM and check out is at 11AM. If you need luggage storage before/after your stay, I recommend the lockers at Union Station (conveniently priced, centrally located near public transit, open from 6AM to 10PM).

Interaction with guests

I usually share my space when traveling or working on music projects. In case we miss each other feel free to contact me anytime, my response rate on Airbnb messenger is 100% and within 1 hour in average.

Other things to note

You'll enjoy the convenience of staying in the suburbs: when compared to the average home-sharing price at the Loop (downtown) it is 3 to 5 times less here. There's also the added benefit of free street parking, great amenities, good apartment size, residential area, beautiful views, on-site laundry, easy access to public transit, beach close by, and very low cleaning fees.
As most hardwood floors at historic buildings in Chicago, it tends to be squeaky, but I'll provide earplugs for your convenience.

As listed. Completely stocked kitchen so self cooking was seamless. Room was very comfortable and air conditioner was perfect.

Great stay! Super cute apartment far enough away from downtown that it is quiet and affordable, but close enough to transit that you can get downtown easily. Fab is super nice, very accommodating and responsive. The room is lovely, air conditioner works well, and the bed is super comfy. I was even able to do some laundry which was great. I will definitely be staying again next time I'm in Chicago.

Accurate and current pictures,clean and tidy,well decorated and a big space. Neighbor seemed safe,no irritation from neighbors. Building looked beautiful from the outside and the room made me feel like I was in that beautiful building I paid for. Thank you for the stay and experience.

This is a very nice, clean space. Fabian is a very responsible host. Might not be the best place if you're a night owl, or want to party. Great for basic accommodations while exploring Chicago.

Response from Fab:
Thanks! Yep, not the best place if you are a night owl or party, I agree. Quiet, residential area.

I'm a Chicago-based music producer and a language teacher able to communicate in fluent Spanish, basic Portuguese and basic Italian. In between working in the studio and globetrotting when needed, I love getting around travelers, colleagues and other artists when possible.
I hope you enjoy my shared-housing experience!
