This is a cozy, bright and clean basement studio. We have a queen size bed and a couch that folds out into a bed. Our basement has a private bath and a Keurig for coffee in the morning. We also have a small fridge stocked with water but no kitchen. Guests have a separate entry with keypad but we live upstairs. You will definitely hear us walking but hopefully you won’t hear us yelling (kindly) at our children. We are sensitive to the noise level when guests are using our space.

Emily's place was exactly as described, we had a fantastic time. The CTA was very easy to get to and the Green Train lead us right downtown. From Emily's place the CTA is about a 30 min walk or 6-8 min Uber ride). Emily's place provided everything we needed and more!

We had a great time in this space! Decor was lovely. Loved the quaintness of the neighbor. No issues with parking. Tons of privacy. Would suggest a microwave and a space heater be added to the space. Although there is an option to text and ask for the heat to be raised, we didn’t…
