- english, polish
I was born in Southern Poland and moved to Chicago in 1986, when I was 17, so I read, write, and speak fluent polish. I have lived now in Chicago for over 30 years and am happy to call it my home. I am very familiar with the fascinating and ever changing city of Chicago, and I hope I can help contribute to your experience. If any issues should arise or you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me, I am available, flexible, and down to earth. I am new to HomeAway, but I am learning quickly. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Great spot for a stay!!
Everything was very nice, only shortcomings were internet was on the slow side and parking on street was not available at times. But still a nice home base for a Chicago getaway!!
Enjoyed our stay completely! The location was perfect from the airport and to the sites downtown.
Exactly as the pictures show.
Overall a wonderful experience!
Such a wonderful experience, the owner was very helpful and checking up on us making sure we’re doing okay. Everything was so clean and neat, it honestly felt like we were at home. I definitely recommend this place for anyone that wishes to visit Chicago.
We spent a cozy and quiet night here. The apartment is clean and comfortable. The location was perfect and parking was plentiful. Communication with Grace was always quick and pleasant.
Great hub for doing all sorts of activities. Clean, quiet neighborhood. Easy parking. Great food.
We really enjoyed our stay. It's a small 1 bedroom apartment right off Irving Park Rd. It's a great central location to take advantage of everything Chicago has to offer. It is quick to downtown and has easy access to the suburbs. The place is very clean and has all the amenities. The air conditioner is super quiet and keeps the unit nicely cooled. Grace has all the things you need if you forget anything. Luckily for us she even had a couple umbrellas stashed in closet. We will definitely consider Grace's place for our next trip to Chicago.
If I was to go back to Chicago, I would look this place up for sure.
The lower level apartment was perfect for me and my daughter to get some rest before busy adventures in Chicago. It was convenient for us to drive our car to the main train station to get downtown, where we access the buses to go wherever we wanted :-) Grace was also a wonderful Hostess had the fridge stocked with fun breakfast ideas so we could get started with little energy. Grace was also very generous and sharing her time and her knowledge so that we were more comfortable venturing out in her City. Way to go Grace, thanks for a wonderful place to stay.
Christina and her daughter were great guests. I enjoyed chatting with them when they arrived and they left the place looking great! Would definitely recommend hosting. Thank you for choosing our place.
