A picture perfect Oak Park bungalow, with several comforts including a fully equipped kitchen, 3 Roku TVs, smart lock for keyless entry, 2 car garage, 9 beds (featuring 2 kings), in-unit washer/dryer & room darkening curtains (to list but a few of many amenities.) On a lovely, quiet, safe, tree lined street, with similarly appointed high-end homes, the home is 18 minutes to city center and 20 minutes to O'Hare via uber or car. This is an incredible house which has earned its rave reviews.
This is a comfortable space with lots of amenities. We just replaced all the plumbing in the house. This home is tastefully decorated and in a great neighborhood with great neighbors.
Wifi is 1 gig with Orbi WiFi extenders. Should be fast, reliable and present throughout the house.
Mattresses are protected with bed bug covers. (This applies to the 5 conventional beds, not to the pull out sofa bed or the three fold out single beds).
Please note that while the house sleeps 13 (in fact we have enough beds to sleep even 15) we only have 2 full bathrooms and a 40 gallon hot water tank. If you bring more than 8 guests you will likely have longer bathroom and shower wait times and may have to space your showers to ensure hot water. Please keep this in mind before you book.

Great neighborhood. The 91 Austin bus is two blocks down which takes you to the Green line "L". From there it is a quick 20-30 minute jaunt to downtown Chicago. Total trip by public transport to downtown Chicago is probably 40 minutes. By car, it’s 20 minutes. Oak Park is the home to the largest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the world, the location of Frank Lloyd Wright's Home and Studio, the birthplace and childhood home of Ernest Hemingway. It is a community which has been proactive in promoting and maintaining racial harmony in the 60s (when white flight from American cities was rampant) and is a wonderfully diverse, interesting and welcoming part of the Chicagoland area. The town’s tradition of inclusiveness is evidenced by the large number of gay and lesbian families who raise their children here. There is much to be proud of as an Oak Parker including Kathy Griffin, John Mahoney, Betty White, Ray Kroc, David Axelrod among other less well known, but equally esteemed residents. I grew up in this house and I can say (after having lived in many places in the US and overseas) that I was lucky to grow up in Oak Park. A Pete’s Fresh Market is about 15 minute drive (great grocery store). Downtown Oak Park is about 15 minute drive and filled with restaurants, bars, cinemas etc. This is a vibrant community. The best blend of urban and suburban one can have in a neighborhood.
Car is the best way to get around. Public transport is nearby but car is easier especially within Oak Park. Of course, Uber and Lyft remain convenient and cost effective alternatives to public transport or cars. If you choose to use a car, there are 2 spots in the garage. Street parking is not allowed at nighttime so you should not bring more than 2 cars.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT TO DOWNTOWN CHICAGO
91 Austin bus has a stop on Austin and Division streets (2 short blocks east). Take 91 Austin bus south to the Green line station at Lake street. You will need to have exact change ($2.75 I believe) or arrange to have a Ventra card pass which you can purchase at the Green line Austin Ave stop. You can also take your car and park and ride at the Austin Ave stop but I don’t know how much parking fees would be so if I were you I would just take the bus to Austin and Lake station. Should take about 1 hour.
#70 División Street bus from Austin and Division (house is on Taylor and Division so walk 2 blocks east to Austin). Take #70 bus to LaSalle Street. Walk 2 minutes from LaSalle to the Clark/Division Street Red line train stop (ask bus driver which direction to walk in to get to red line station). Take Red Line “L” train southbound to Downtown Chicago stops. Should take about 1 hour.
The RTA/CTA information hotline is ********. They are open from 6AM-7PM and can provide point to point verbal public transport details.
It’s a great place in a great neighborhood. I think I have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Hope you agree. Ceiling fans in 3 bedrooms. Room darkening curtains in each bedroom for the travel worn and jet lagged guest.
We do charge by the # of guests so if you do not provide an accurate count we will be unable to properly price your stay to reflect additional laundry and consumables costs to us. Please make sure extra guests are accurately reflected in your booking so you receive the correct pricing as well as amenities at time of reservation. Due to prior abuse, Guests or visitors not declared before check-in will incur a charge of $250 per undeclared guest/visitor per night so make sure you declare and pay for all guests/visitors who will be using the home to avoid that charge. It is so much cheaper to pay for the actual number of guests than to trigger the surcharge. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
While we cannot guarantee early check-ins or late check-outs, you can make a request and we will note the request and inform you the day before if we can accommodate. There is a $25 fee per early check-in or late check-out up to 3 hours before/after check-in time, if we can accommodate. Any early check-ins or late check-outs longer than 3 hours are charged at a rate of $10 per hour. Thank you for understanding. Baggage storage fee is $5 per bag. Pack and play rental is $10 per night.
Walkable score is 79 and public transport score is 57.
