Bright and sunny 3bed/1.5bath home in Brookfield. Walking distance to the Metra with a short train ride to the Loop. We are also close to Midway and other transport options! For those that want to drive you can make it to downtown in 30 minutes or less if you do not go during rush hour.

This house is great for groups looking for a base camp for their city adventures or time visiting family. The backyard has a fire pit, hammock, stringer lights, and a grill.


The space

Josh and Kara volunteer for an international disaster relief organization called ShelterBox and have collected loads of maps, art, and handcrafts from their missions around the world. Collectively, we have been to more than 30 countries and have brought back small pieces of each of them.

Additionally, our house is filled with handcrafted tables made by Josh and loads of metalwork made by Kara and her family.

We have a large garden in the backyard with fresh tomatoes, greens, herbs and more! Depending on the season, feel free to take advantage of these fresh veggies while you're in town. The backyard has a fire pit, hammock, stringer lights, and a grill. Please, do not set off fireworks while at our house.

Our driveway has space to fit two vehicles and we could probably fit more, if arranged in advance.

This home is very beautiful and the owners are very nice and helpful. I stayed here for a week and it has been a pleasant and wonderful stay. Very close to a train station. And bus is also very close if needed. If you have a large family this home only has one shower to it may take a little longer to get ready, but other than that it is a very nice place!

We really enjoyed staying at Josh and Kara's house. There were three of us, so we had plenty of space to hang out. The kitchen is beautiful and nicely equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. The back yard is also great for hanging out. The location was perfect for where we needed to be - we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This was my first time using the service and I was hesitant. Josh and Kara were awesome and considerate hosts. Their place had a ton of character and was very relaxing for my family.
