We are empty nesters who live in an active neighborhood full of young families. Our house has high ceilings and many windows, a homey decor and a large kitchen w/lots of utensils to share, including a Breville Juicer, Vitamix and Kitchen Aid!
Bedroom #1 has a queen size bed, dresser, TV/Cable, mini fridge, ceiling fan and a walk-in closet. Adjacent to the room is a full bathroom with a variety of toiletries and hairdryer. You will probably have the entire bathroom to yourselves, but in the event our two other bedrooms are booked at the same time as yours, than you would have to share with other guests.
Access through the front door.

My name is Lourdes Soto-Smith, and I'm a Spanish Interpreter/Translator. I was a member of the Mexican Foreign Service for 18 years. While I was stationed at the Embassy of Mexico in Washington, DC, I met my husband Rick who was just completing his Dental School studies at Georgetown University. We currently live in the Aurora/Naperville area, a western Chicago suburb, 36 miles from the loop. We've been married 31 years and have 3 amazing children ages 28, 26 and 25. Jessica has a major in International Relations and Ricky in International Business. David is a member of the United States Marine Corps and is now studying Accounting at ASU. I am a Department 56 village collector and consider myself an avid seasonal decorator. I enjoy culinary arts, foreign films, yoga and music. Rick is a sports enthusiast and a faithful fan of most major league teams from Michigan, especially the Redwings! We both love to travel and meet new people and Airbnb provides us with the perfect venue. We've stayed in over 25 Airbnbs around the world so we know what it takes to make our home a welcoming place. We are so excited to host and LOVE doing it!! If you're visiting the burbs for family affairs, business or pleasure, please stop by, "Mi Casa es tu Casa!"
