Welcome to my clean and happy abode! “Mi casa es tu casa,” is the motto. I am a friendly host, who loves having AirBnb guests.
Sleep on your choice of a new, large leather sectional, or the pullout twin bed, which is converted from a custom Pottery Barn honey-colored chair.
No need for a car; Metra is as close as possible and is walking distance!
Imagine staying in a home with a happy, young professional host, and you’ve got your stay in Downers Grove. Come live like a Chicago suburbanite!
The Chicago western suburbs are extremely safe and friendly. While many parts of Chicago have affluent neighborhoods, you’ll find in some places, the town nextdoor a mile away is a bit sketch. Not in Downers Grove: you’re insulated from crime by having many other nice, neighboring towns in Dupage County such as Westmont, Lombard, Naperville, Woodridge, Western Springs, Hinsdale, and Oak Brook.
From the house, you have convenience to all sorts of shops and restaurants. Looking for groceries? Try Standard Market! The best specialty foods and high-quality grocer in the United States is only a mile away (dry-aged steaks, fantastic seafood, fancy cheeses, and the freshest produce, I cannot emphasize how amazing this place is!). Want to have a bite to eat? Neat Kitchen & Bar is one mile East in Westmont, featuring hip, New American food & atmosphere. There’s also the local Chicago hot dog and gyro joint, The Eagle Restaurant, just around the corner and about a two-minutes walk from the house. Want to experience local breweries? Emmet’s is one mile west off the same street as the house, and Alter Brewing Co. is another great microbrewer 2 miles from downtown Downers Grove off of Belmont Rd. There’s so many places in the suburbs, but downtown Chicago is easily accessible as well! Leave the car behind: getting downtown is easy. Take a 4 minute walk to the train station, and you can be downtown in less than half an hour via the Metra line BNSF.
With all your urban exploring and adventuring, I’ll make sure your stay is comfortable and restful. At the house, I will provide you fresh linens with two white sheets, a blanket, and two standard cotton bed pillows to sleep on. I make sure to make the space as comfortable and clean as possible. I literally clean every day, guest or not.
For your things, there is available a small living room closet, with a hanger bar for clothing. You’re also free to pile your bags in the corner if that’s your style.
The house features hardwood throughout, kitchen access, and a big yard and deck. Private parking is available in the spacious driveway. If you need to do laundry, there is a washer and dryer, ironing board, and a Swash Machine. I will also provide you a fresh towel and wash cloth, hotel-style shampoo & soaps, and blow-dryer and styling tools if needed. The bathroom features a heated fan which is amazing for Chicago winters!
Last to mention is my dog Kabuki, who also stays in the house. He is a Japanese Chin, which if you’re not familiar with the breed, is a low-key, friendly, smaller version of a King Charles Cavalier Cocker Spaniel. He is a senior dog, and sleeps most of the time in a separate room. Every other day he gets a second wind and likes to greet people and play with his plush toys at night. There is also a beta fish, George, who is amazingly friendly and agile for a fish, and he will help you bring home a unique story for your nice stay in Chicago!
While you stay in Downers Grove, anything you need, just ask. Mi casa es tu casa, and I believe you will truly enjoy this shared space.
The Downers Grove and Westmont area is part of the beautiful and affluent western Chicago suburbs. Both have downtowns with many neat restaurants, shops, and bars if you would like to go out to eat or are looking for an evening hang out locally. Downtown Downers is 1 mile west, Westmont 1 mile east.
The house is walking distance to the Metra, 7/11 & Speedway, the Eagle Restaurant, Burlington Barber Shop, Treehouse Arts Center, and multiple parks and forest preserves. On weekdays, the BNSF Metra line will get you to downtown Chicago in 25 minutes, and on weekends, Metra rides are 50 minutes. The line can also take you west to Naperville and Aurora.
This area is great for recreation. Runners will have plenty of nice flat paths including one that will take you through the forest preserve. Waterfall Glen, which features over 9 miles of hilly crushed limestone paths, is only a few miles away. For a nature-renowned treat, visit the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, located just 4 miles from the house. If there’s snow on the ground, try cross-country skiing at the Morton for a very affordable price!
For golfers, there are multiple courses within a 5 mile radius, some of which even offer rental clubs, perfect for those traveling. I suggest Downers Grove Golf Club, the oldest golf course in North America, which is only a few miles away in the same town.
