About Us


These amazing, bright and sunny 1800 sq foot lofts are just off Halsted in the Lincoln Park neighborhood – 2 blocks from the Red Line train, with easy access to three bus routes (one which stops right out front of the building), the Kennedy Expressway and Lake Shore Drive.

Husband and wife team, Carole and Basil are just now completing this renovation as we downsize from the amazing dream home we created in the early 1990s to run our translation business and raise our family. Your home base in Chicago is the first part of what will ultimately be 4 urban loft homes in a former tavern & dance hall (1890s) turned costume & magic card factory (1950s) turned our urban dream home (1990s).

After 12 years of managing our vacation rentals in Greece, and one year with our first Chicago rental, we’ve learned how to design and build the perfect vacation space for your guests. We love to be able to accommodate families and groups of couples or friends in spaces that sleep everyone in private bedrooms, leaving the common area open for group meals and just relaxing.

Our spacious, comfortably furnished bedrooms have brand new Sealy Posturpedic beds, high thread count bath linens, and plenty of fluffy towel sets for everyone. Each loft is equipped with an amazing chef’s kitchen, stocked with everything one could need, and the open floor plan living room & dining areas offer plenty of seating and hang around room for everyone. We have free WiFi, a clothes washer and dryer and easy free and safe street parking if you need it. We’ve also got off street parking optionally bookable.

From the moment we made contact with Carole, everything was perfect: the communication, the apartment, the location, the recommendations for shopping and restaurants.... Carole truly understands hospitality, and what it means to be a travelle
