Our garden unit is located in the quaint historic bungalow district of Portage Park, close to grocery stores, restaurants, and three beautiful parks. We are within walking distance of public transportation and easy to find from the highway. Ideal for families or groups, we have extra amenities for young children. The queen bed is brand new and very comfortable. Flat screen tv with apple tv, free WiFi, extra strollers and kids' toys.

The space

This is a finished garden-level basement with a large living area, one bedroom, a full bathroom with a stand-up shower (no tub), and a study with a convertible couch. The living room, bedroom and study have been recently renovated but the kitchen is vintage--it has totally functional 1990s-era appliances but the room and sink are still 1970s style.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire garden in-law unit. The bedroom and bathroom are totally private. The living area and kitchen are all yours but if you stay more than 3 days we may need arrange a convenient time to pass through to reach our laundry room. The back yard cement patio area is also available to guests.

The entrance to the unit is at the back of the house, 5 steps down.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to help guests anytime but will try to remain out of your way unless you need us. We live upstairs so we are easily reached and usually around.

Other things to note

Beds: We can comfortably accommodate 3 adults plus 2-3 small children. If you don't mind a blow-up bed and couch, we can host a maximum of 6 adults plus or minus 2 little kids. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed for two. The daybed in the study sleeps one comfortably and two more could stay in the living room on our queen-sized blow-up mattress. We also have a pack-n-play crib, an inflatable toddler mattress, and a newborn co-sleeping bed available upon request.

Kitchen: Refrigerator/freezer with essentials, stove, teapot, coffee maker, table and chairs, and a vintage sink. Dishes are provided, plus breakfast with coffee and cream, snacks, and drinks. This kitchen is not fancy so it may not be a place to cook a big meal. Use it if you like, though.

Our laundry room is available for your light use.

Clean and comfortable place in a beautiful neighborhood! Gia was very welcoming, easy check in and was in contact throughout our stay to make sure every thing was okay! There were three of us staying at Gia's place and it was quite comefortable. Great place to call home for our visit! Fairly easy to get around using public transit. Takes 45mins to an hour to get downtown, but we also had a car for when we couldn't (or were to lazy) to take transit. Overall excellent stay!

Everything went smoothly and was exactly as mentioned in the listing. Very clean, comfortable, and had anything that you could ever need. The Keurig, snacks, and breakfast items were a nice touch as well as any extra toiletries in case you forgot. Gia and her husband were great hosts and were easy to get in touch with. Would recommend to others who need to stay in the area!

Gia was incredibly accommodating. She covered everything about her place and was very helpful. The place is clean and I had no problem cooking for my family. It is a very good place for a family stay and parking was a breeze. An all around excellent place.

Gia was a friendly and accommodating host. She went out of her way to provide toys for my twin sons in addition to providing a spacious space that was fully stocked, pleasant, clean, and comfortable. We will stay here again. Thank you, Gia, for a great place to stay!
