Welcome to Chicago!

My home is your home. It's centrally located on a tree lined street in a quiet residential area of Independence Park. It's surrounded by lush gardens. You can relax and unwind on the stone patio with teak furniture listening to bird songs, a waterfall and watching the koi dance in the pond.

Please note: There is a very well behaved dog in this home.

Your room is a second bedroom in my 2-bedroom/2-bath home with central heating and cooling. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed. There is plenty of closet space plus a large four drawers chest, a desk and corner computer work space. There is an older laptop for your use. Your own bathroom is a full bath with custom-tiled shower complete with luxurious toiletries, fluffy towels and hair dryer. In winter, there is a Homedics hand spa (great for winter hand warmer and moisturizer!)

My guests are welcome to:
-Use my memberships for two free passes to the Adler Planetarium (value $50)
-Free WI-FI
-Unlimited gourmet coffee and tea
-Self-served breakfast of hot and cold cereal, toast&jam
-Sharing the kitchen with me
-Take a refuge in my garden anytime
-Free CTA maps/schedules
-Free permit parking front of home

My home is ideally situated near most everything:
- 2.5 blocks from Blue Line (city) and Metra (suburbs) train stations
- 1 block from buses
- 20 minutes to downtown Chicago,15 minutes to O'Hare airport by train
- 2 blocks from Kennedy I-90 and Eden I-94 expressways
- 2 blocks from park with tennis courts and indoor swimming pool
- 5 miles from Lake
- 2 blocks from Walgreen's and supermarket
- Within 8 blocks from LA Fitness, X-Sports, YMCA and Planet Fitness
- More than 20 restaurants within 10 blocks radius:
Thai, Chinese, Sushi, Mexican, South American, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Eastern European, Italian, German, Irish Pubs, Famous Smoked Ribs and McDonald's of course.

My home is on the Northwest side of the city about 7 miles from downtown Chicago. The Blue line trains take you directly to the loop which run every 3-10 minutes and the station is a 5-minute walk from my door steps.

If you plan to use the Chicago Transit Authority system often, you can buy CTA passes at a currency exchange, major food and drug stores (1-day $10, 3-day $20, 7-day $28). A single fare is $2.25 or $2.50 with transfers for both buses and trains within two hours.

About the host...I am semi-retired and have been living in Chicago for over 40 years. You can probably guess that I'm a gardener. I run businesses from home and also teach Thai cooking (you might be joining me for dinner by chance!). I've traveled to many parts of the world and love all the different customs and cultures. I love sharing my home with guests and meeting new friends. I play tennis, so if you do too, we can hit a few balls at the court nearby. Their is no TV in my home as I do not watch TV.

Welcome and enjoy your stay!

Das Zimmer von Jeannie ist sehr schön. Es ist etwa 15 qm groß, hat zwei Fenster und sogar ein eigenes Bad! Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit und gibt gute Ratschläge über das, was man in Chicago unternehmen kann. Einen sehr friedfertigen Hund wohnt auch dabei. Das Haus liegt etwa 10 min von der U bahn entfernt. Bei schönem Wetter kann man gemütlich draußen frühstücken und den Garten bewundern. Sollte ich wieder nach Chicago fliegen, würde ich gerne wieder da wohnen.

We, my daughter and me had a really nice week in Chicago. Its very easy to get downtown with the blue line from here. Jeannie is very relaxed and friendly, so is her dog.
The neighborhood is quite, so sleeping in the morning will be interrupted only by the birds singing or your alarm clock. Breakfast in the garden was a superb start in the day.
We would recommend this place to all our friends, staying in Chicago!!!

This was our first experience with Wimdu and we have nothing to complain about.
The house is beautiful, very clean und very good located. It is just a few minutes to walk to the train wich goes directly to Downtown or to the O'Hare Airport.
The room is big and out to the garden. So it is very quiet. The neigborhood ist safe und pretty. You can do nice walks aorund there. Restaurants and a supermarket are nearby. You just have to walk a few minutes to get there.
Jeannie was a great an very friendly host. If we had any quetions, she helped us and gave us good tipps. We can highly recommend her to other guests.

Jeannie is very friendly and helpful. She has a fantastic dog
Easton who was raised as well, incredible.
The room is spacious and a nice bed. The bathroom you have to yourself. Her home is in a quiet street but with the train you are quickly in the city. The garden was covered with snow but there was a degree that they make a super garden woman is.ontbijt you can own and Wi-Fi.
In short, a must for a nice stay in Chicago

I enjoyed my stay with Jeannie She is a charming hostess, generous with her time and advice.
Her house is located on a lovely quiet street in which to return after a busy day in Chicago and the bed was more comfortable.
The garden is still beautiful in October and we can admire her kitchen.

Jeannie was very helpful and friendly. Our room and our bathroom were nice and clean. We had everything we needed and sat in the beautiful garden. The location right between airport and downtown at the blue line is just perfect! Highly recommended!
