About Mara Blond
I am a retired interior designer living in Hyde Park, Chicago. I love to travel to exotic destinations like Morocco and India. I have collected many beautiful things in my travels. These things are displayed in my condo. I hope my guests would enjoy these things as much as I do. I have created a very interesting, warm and cozy space. I bought this condo and totally renovated it to have a vintage feel but with new modern conveniences such as new kitchen and bathroom. I love foreign films and ethnic food of all types. I also enjoy visiting the many wonderful museums and architectural sites that Chicago has to offer.
Mara Blond purchased this Studio in 2017
Why Mara Blond chose Hyde Park
I chose this property because it is central to so many restaurants and attractions. yet it has a neighborhood environment, close to the lakefront, with many places to walk. It also allows me to easily travel either by car or public transportation to other parts of the city. I can be downtown in 15 minutes by train or bus and not have to worry about parking.
What makes this Studio unique
I was able to renovate this apartment in this vintage building to make a very cozy, inviting retreat.

Visiting Son at UChicago
Mara was a wonderful host. She was excellent with communication! Her apartment was very clean and beautifully decorated. She even provided special beverages for us to have in the morning. The apartment was right next to the university. It would be a pleasure to be able to return to her apartment for future visits. We are so grateful to have had such a wonderful stay. Thank you Mara!!!
Mara's place was the perfect place to stay to move my daughter in to UChicago. It's located steps away from the campus, and I could walk everywhere I needed to go. It was clean and comfortable, and Mara was very easy to connect with - it was perfect. Thank you!
Grateful for our stay!
Mara was such a great communicator from day one. She made our stay as easy for us as possible. The space was lovely, well cared for, and had everything we needed. Mara’s extra preparation was noted and appreciated. The area is beautiful and so easy to navigate. Thank you, Mara!
Great U Chicago location
The owner was by far the most gracious host we have ever interacted with. Her home is beautiful and comfortable!
Great location! Mara was very welcoming and the apartment was lovely.
One of the best places to stay in Chicago
