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.

Your home base in Chicago is one of the 4 urban loft homes we've built in a former tavern & dance hall (1890s) turned costume & magic card factory (1950s) turned our urban dream home (1990s). Today this historic multi-use building has a new life providing a home away from home to travelers from around the world. Basil and I still live in the building in a smaller version of our first dream home, and we operate our custom travel planning and tour company from an office in the building as well.

After 17 years of managing our vacation rentals in Greece, we’ve learned how to design and build the perfect vacation space for 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. We've learned the importance of fast, reliable WiFi internet, comfortable beds, and plenty of bath towels.

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.
