Accès des voyageurs

Guests can schedule a time to meet at the condo or can pick up keys at 5329 N Glenwood Ave Chicago, IL 60640. Contact me when you're on your way to pick up the keys, and I'll give you the lock box code. When you check out, you can leave keys with my co-host.

Guests will have access to the entire unit save other private rooms. Additionally, they will be able to use the laundry facilities/storage on the first floor.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Either I or my co-host will greet guests the day they arrive (unless you prefer to pick up keys from the lockbox off premises). After that, it's up to the guest how much they'd like to be in contact. I or my co-host will be available should a need arise.

Le quartier

SOUTH SHORE-

CULTURE:
The neighborhood is culturally and socioeconomically diverse with tree- lined streets adorned with an eclectic array of early 20th century architecture mixed with single-family houses. It boasts soul-food joints, jazz clubs and golf courses as well local markets. The local library and post office are on our street!

RENAISSANCE:
Currently, the South Shore, once a thriving, artistic community, is experiencing a renaissance. Home to the former behemoth U.S. Steel mill, the neighborhood will soon welcome President Obama's library and George Lucas' Star Wars Museum. The steel mill will become a park along the lake. Additionally, new housing and retailers are popping up. Moreover, the city is initiating a large-scale green energy program, which will power neighborhoods along the shore using wind and hydropower as well as reducing and recycling waste and water.

THE SKINNY:
Having said all that, in and around South Shore, there are areas that are not ideal. It's always best to be familiar with your surroundings in a large urban area. It's not uncommon to see boarded up houses or businesses.

In my nearly 4 years in the neighborhood, I've seen improvement. Neither I nor my guests have had any issues. However, if you're not accustomed to living in mixed-income areas, you may want to see the neighborhood before you come. Otherwise, I'm sure you'll be as comfortable as my former guests and I have been.

Transports

Free street parking in front of the building. No sticker required. 7-min walk to Metra train (Windsor Park Station). 4- to 10-minute walks to various bus stops ( and more)

CLEANING: Your Cleaning Fees are assessed to launder linens and clean/tidy up common areas after your stay. If you're staying longer than one month, there will be cleaning services for common areas during your stay each month.

Your Cleaning Fees does NOT cover: laundry, overflowing trash cans, food left in the refrigerator/shelves after you leave, torn or soiled bedding/mattresses, scuffed floors, walls or doors, missing items, dirty dishes on stoves, sink and/or dishwasher, layers/rings of soap film and scum in bath tub, sink and/or toilet. Any cleaning beyond normal cleaning of linens and common areas will be charged to the guest's security deposit.

HOUSEMATES: There will be one or two other guests staying in other rooms, so all guests are expected to keep common areas safe, clean and clear so all guests feel comfortable. Any complaints by housemates will be addressed treated seriously. Guest who are not compliant will have their reservations cancelled immediately.

BED BUGS: The city of Chicago (and around the US) has experienced an increase in bed bug infestations. It's a issue that both AIRBNB guests and hosts want to avoid. Therefore, my building HOA (home owners association) and I require visitors to follow this protocol if you are not traveling directly from your home or from a verified bed bug-free environment:

-Guests will first take luggage, bags, etc to the storage unit in the basement

-After I show you your room, we'll return to the basement to wash/dry your belongings. I'll pay for your laundry and provide detergent.

-I can steam clean any items that can not go into machines.

-All luggage/bags must remain in storage during your stay

-Once items are laundered, they may enter and be stored in the condo

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Thank you for your cooperation,

RaeGina

Règlement intérieur
Non fumeur
Ne convient pas aux animaux
Pas de fête ni de soirée
Peut ne pas convenir aux enfants (0-12 ans)
L'heure d'arrivée est flexible

This is smoke-free, drug-free condo/building.

Quiet hours: 9pm to 6am weekdays and from 11pm weekends.

Guests are asked to wear slippers/flip flops (I provide them if you don't travel with a pair) to avoid scratching hardwood floors. Any major damage to surfaces and/or furniture will be charged to the security deposit.

Save the planet/Keep Airbnb rates low: Turn off lights/unplug electronics when not in use

I do not live on the premises, and will travel an hour to greet guests at the residence. We can either schedule a check in time that is convenient for both of us, or you can pick up the keys anytime from a different address. We'll plan accordingly after your book the room.

2.
To make everyone comfortable and to keep hardwood floors free from dirt and allergens, guests do not wear shoes in the house. There's a shoe stand next to the door for your convenience. Slippers can be provided upon request.

3.
As there will be 2 or more guests occupying the condo at one time, it's imperative that all guests keep common areas clean, and leave rooms as they were found. For example, do not leave dirty dishes on the stove or in the sink. Clean up toothpaste in the bathroom sink or clear hair, soap scum from shower drain after each use. Complaints that common areas are not being kept clean and safe will be taken seriously and addressed immediately to ensure everyone feels comfortable.

4.
Lost/stolen keys are subject to a replacement fee (from Security Deposit) as the locks to the condo and to the entire building would have to be replaced. Each key will be $20 for the condo/bedrooms. Building keys will be subject to fees as deemed appropriate by the condo association.

I stayed here for about 2.5 weeks. The neighborhood was actually pretty quiet and the neighbors were friendly. I even got to chat with the guy downstairs for a bit. The living room is cute and tidy; and so is the room. The bed was comfortable and clean. The bedrooms each have locks with keys. You'll have everything you need in the kitchen except something to make coffee with so I bought a french press. Parking is easy for most of the day but it's hard to find a spot later in the evening. You have access to the laundry room for the building. It's pretty dirty but the coin op washers and driers work fine. It's a bit of a drive if you want to get to downtown and public transportation from there is a bit more difficult than from some other areas. Even so, this is a good deal and especially worth it if you have a car. One issue is that if you find that something needs to be cleaned the people who do that live far away and may not be available. Hopefully that was just because there was so much unusual stuff going on during my stay and doesn't reflect how they normally do things. There were a string of unfortunate issues that were out of the host's control but she was prompt in communicating with me and with handling the problems. Some things couldn't be fixed, and I couldn't stay for the rest of my reservation under those conditions, so she promptly discounted my stay and refunded the time left on the reservation that I wouldn't be using. I feel like it's important to know how you'll be treated when things go wrong and you couldn't ask for better. She was definitely on top of it and super nice throughout. The issues I mentioned are being resolved and I'm sure when it is ready this will be a perfectly nice place to stay again.
