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
-Free use of washer & dryer

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!

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.

Super Unterkunft ! hier macht man nichts verkehrt. Die Unterkunft hat eine sehr gute Verkehrsanbindung zu Downtown sowie zum Flughafen. Zudem ist das Haus in einer ruhigen und sicheren Nachbarschaft mit einigen guten Bars und Restaurants. Jaennie war zudem eine hervorragende Gastgeberin... immer wieder gerne.

Jeannie is heel vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. Ze heeft een fantastische hond
Easton die zo goed is opgevoed , ongelooflijk.
De kamer is ruim en een fijn bed. De badkamer heb je voor jezelf. Haar huis ligt in een rustige straat maar met de trein ben je snel in de stad. De tuin was met sneeuw bedekt maar er hing een diploma dat ze een supertuinvrouw is.ontbijt kan je zelf maken en er is WiFi.
Kortom, een aanrader voor een leuk verblijf in Chicago

J'ai bien apprécié mon séjour chez Jeannie: elle est une hotesse charmante, généreuse de son temps et de ses conseils.
Sa maison est située sur une jolie rue tranquille où il fait bon revenir après une journée animée à Chicago et le lit était des plus confortable.
Son jardin est encore beau au mois d'octobre et on peut l'admirer de sa cuisine.

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!

Es ist eine bezaubernde, geschmackvolle und vor allem sehr saubere Wohnung. Der Garten hat das Attribut "herrlich" echt verdient.
Jeannie ist eine sehr nette und liebenswerte Gastgeberin. Wir bekamen interessante Tips für unsere Chicago-Touren.
Die Lage ist sehr ruhig und dennoch ist die "Blue-Line" in ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß erreichbar.
Wir würden bei einem nächsten Besuch auf jeden Fall wieder hier her kommen.

Jannie was a wonderful host and she is a very lovable and frienly person. We had very nice talks und shared our passion for traveling, plants, art and culture. Her garden with all the fountains is really a pleasue to see. The rooms are bright and clean, everything we needed was close and easy to reach. The neighborhood is quiet and save and there is a very good Thai-restaurant in walking distance. We can only recommend this place and hope that our paths might cross once more on our travels, or even, when are in Germany next year!

Janine ist eine sehr liebenswerte Gastgeberin. Wir haben ihren wunderschönen Garten, die interessanten Gespäche, die sauberen und gepflegen Räume in einer angenehmen und ruhigen Umgebuing sehr genossen und wir hoffen, Janine irgendwann mal wieder zu sehen, vielleicht sogar, wenn wir wieder in Deutschland leben!
