Please read the house rules.
Our home is a great home for the independent traveler. There are times when the house is full of people and others when there might be only a few. During high season (summer, Lollapalooza for example) the house may be very busy giving you the opportunity to meet a lot of new people.
We have dogs and cats in case of allergies or sensitivities. They are not allowed in the bedrooms. If you have any sensitivities to pets, this is not the home for you.
A coin laundromat is about 7 minutes away- Just one train stop over. Kitchen is unavailable.
We are just a 3 minute walk to the Blue Line train. Please note that because we are so close to the train, you will hear some noise. This is the price we pay for this amazing convenience. This is the train that takes you directly to O'Hare airport and also into downtown Chicago in about 17 minutes. The first stop at Jackson, is only 17 minutes. But the other end of the loop, Washington, can be as long as 40 minutes. To come from Midway you would take the Orange Line and switch for the Blue Line at Van Buren and continue on. It's also a 5 minute drive to the 290 on ramp.
We are walking distance to the Jewel and CVS (about 5 blocks). Next door to the Jewel is a Budget/Avis car rental for those times you just want to drive around. I can get you free parking for up to 30 days.
We are very convenient to all the attractions such as the Sears "Willis" Tower, Millenium Park, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Museum of Science and Industry, the Art Institute, Lincoln Park Zoo, Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum (with the free flying butterflies. Best nature museum and I've been to many) and Navy Pier, just to name a few (and that's really just a few. There are so many more things to do!)
We are around the corner from Yoga Trek (has drop in classes), Val's Halla records (if you're into music, this is a must see place) some great restaurants, Italian and The Buzz Cafe (great free range beef burger, gluten free, organic) for Eclectic fare, and just one train stop away from Brazilian, American, more Mexican food, Hole in the Wall for ice cream (yum) and a Pans, a small family owned grocery store. A laundry is next to the Brazilian restaurant. Don't forget to try the passion fruit mousse - delicious! 2 stops away is the best breakfast ever at Amelia's.
For the architecture buff, Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio is located here in Oak Park along with many of his buildings. Guided tours are available.
It's also the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway

Un piuttosto vecchia casa con 4 camere private. La posizione è perfetta, facile da raggiungere dall'aeroporto (non c'è bisogno di cambiare il treno) e facile da raggiungere il centro della città. Nice room attrezzata e bagno pulito. Tutto era perfetto organizzata.
A quite old house with 4 private rooms. The location is perfect, easy to reach from airport (no need to change the train) and easy to get into city center. Nice equiped room and clean bathroom. Everything was perfect organised.
Tamara is very gentle and welcome me when I arrived. The location is fantastic, near the blue line train station so it,s no more than 15-20 min to downtown. The room was clean and had also a microwave and a refrigerator.
Unfortunately we did not meet Tamara, because we only had a short stay for one night and arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning for the marathon. But from her messages I am sure she is a very kind and likeable host.
I can confirm all the other feedbacks given before.
We were provided with detailed information and had no problem to find the house which is close to the CTA indeed. The way from downtown Chicago is indeed a bit long. For one night, that was absolutely no problem. For a week, it might be bothersome.
Compared to others I can not confirm that the train or the highway nearby were disturbing. But maybe that was due to our stay from 10 pm until 5 am.
Wifi worked well too.
We even got an additional bed as we stayed there with 3.
Sharing the bathroom with others was ok, which might also be due to the downtime we had been there. We even got help by other tenants as we forgot our power adapters.
The problem was that we also slept in the room downstairs, that had no lock (also no problem when only staying 7 hours). So we were also annoyed by the smell of cat pee. And we were surprised by two coons in the window of the doorway. But as they were coward, they did not get in.
Tamara was very helpful and pleasant. Our only issue was the over powering smell of cat pee. Wouldn't recommend staying in downstairs room...upstairs may be OK.
Tamara is a great host, we enjoyed the stay at her place.
Very good connection to the blue metro line.
We would like to share our experience in this property in order to other people know what they are going to find in this house:
1) The situation of the house is very close of the train stop
2) Tamara was very kind and sent us all the information we needed via email
3) The room was clean and it has a fridge and microwave, and also, they provide to us shampoo and some soup.
4) The wifi works very good
5) We had a fan in our room
6) The twins beds were confortable
1) The door of the room has not any lock, so we had to trust that nobody of the other tenants opened our room... (nothing happened to us)
2) The bathroom is shared for four bedrooms, in my opinion this is too much
3) The smell in the main entrance, corridor and bathroom is awful, I think because of the cats' urine
4) The train takes a long time to arrive to the Austin stop
5) We've never met our host or anybody in the house. Only other tenants going to the bathroom. Everything was very impersonal.
6) The room has not A.C. but we could sleep with the fan.
7) The noise of the highway and the train rail is quite high because the house is just in front of them. We had to close the window to sleep. Take this into account if you go during the summer and want to have the window opened.
La stanza è pulita, spaziosa e ben attrezzata. Vi è un ampio armadio e un letto comodo. Il frigorifero e il lavoro microonde. La casa, situata nel tranquillo sobborgo di Oak Park, si trova vicino al centro città grazie alla sua vicinanza con la linea blu el.
Tamara è un'ottima hostess. Lei è simpatico e preoccupato per il comfort dei suoi ospiti. Ad esempio, quando il forno a microonde in camera mia «morto», ha sostituito lo stesso giorno. Tiene il bagno pulito e fornisce biancheria pulita ogni settimana. Lei è sempre e solo un messaggio di testo via. Sono così soddisfatto del mio soggiorno con Tamara che ho esteso esso.
The room is clean, spacious and well-equiped. There is a spacious closet and a comfortable bed. The refrigerator and the microwave work. The house, located in the quiet suburb of Oak Park, is close to downtown thanks to its close proximity to the Blue Line el.
Tamara is a great hostess. She is personable and concerned about the comfort of her guests. For example, when the microwave in my room « died », she replaced it the same day. She keeps the bathroom clean and provides clean linen each week. She is always just a text message away. I am so pleased with my stay with Tamara that I have extended it.
Tamara era molto cordiale.
Il bagno, che ho condiviso con compagni maschi della casa era molto sporco. La doccia (bagno), non ho potuto utilizzare. Il gabinetto era anche macchiato e sporco.
Prima della mia partenza ho avuto la possibilità di rispondere alla sporcizia Tamara, che ha avuto luogo solo al momento della partenza.
Poi ha detto che con lei ho avuto il bagno potrebbe utilizzare. Mi hai dimenticato probabilmente da raccontare.
La camera è separata dalla stanza vicina e corridoio solo da porte pieghevoli, che lo rende un po 'rumoroso.
Tamara war sehr freundlich.
Das Badezimmer, was ich mir mit den männlichen Mitbewohnern des Hause teilte, war sehr schmutzig. Die Dusche (Badewanne) konnte ich überhaupt nicht benutzen. Das WC war ebenfalls verschmiert und dreckig.
Da ich vor meiner Abreise keine Gelegenheit hatte Tamara auf die Unsauberkeit anzusprechen, erfolgte das erst bei Abreise.
Daraufhin meinte sie, dass ich das Bad unten bei ihr hätte benutzen könne. Sie habe es mir vermutlich vergessen zu sagen.
Das Zimmer ist zum Nachbarzimmer und Flur nur durch Falttüren getrennt, was es etwas hellhörig macht.
Tamara è molto accogliente e gentile. La sua struttura è infatti ubicato, a pochi minuti dalla linea della metropolitana. La camera era pulita e confortevole.
Tamara is very welcoming and kind. Her property is indeed conveniently located, just a few minutes from the metro line. The room was clean and comfortable.
Posto di Tamara era quello che mi serviva per una rapida paio di notti in Chicago: un letto pulito e un accesso Wifi. Non abbiamo avuto la possibilità di incontrare, ma ha fatto in modo che qualcuno era a casa a farmi entrare e mi danno il codice per la porta per il mio soggiorno. Il parcheggio era un po 'difficile (doveva essere fuori strada da 8:00) a causa della pulizia delle strade, ma si offrì di darmi un permesso di parcheggio.
Tamara's place was what I needed for a quick couple of nights in Chicago: a clean bed and access to Wifi. We didn't get a chance to meet, but she made sure someone was home to let me in and give me the code to the door for my stay. Parking was a little bit tricky (had to be off the street by 8 a.m.) because of street sweeping, but she offered to give me a parking permit.
