About Paul Manning

I'd best describe myself as a responsible professional who enjoys new adventures, hosting friends and family, sports/fitness, and meeting new people. I'm very easy going - rarely getting stressed out or too worked up about anything - lifes too short. I also love Chicago. I take great pride in our city - always happy to share the hot spots, local festivals, tourist locations, vintage shops, restaurants, transportation directions, etc.

Paul Manning purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Paul Manning chose Bucktown

1) I'm originally from Boston, MA. The great people of Chicago are what originally attracted me to the city and they're what keeps me here. No other city of 6 million people will make someone feel so welcome. It offers all the convience and trend of a major international destination but yet often feels more like living in a small midwest farm town. It's a special place.

2) Forbes Magazine recently rated Bucktown/Wicker Park as the 4th hipest hipster neighborhood in the country. Chicago's hottest restaurants, nightlife, and shopping is on our doorstep.

3) The house I purchased was built in 1892. It's an historic workers cottage originally home to some of Chicago's hardest working immigrants. As neighborhoods transition these historic homes are disappearing. The opportunity to preserve this piece of Chicago history was something I was most attracted to.

Quiet, safe, studio type basement apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice place in a nice neighborhood. Paul met us when we arrived to give us the ins and outs, and was available for help when we needed it. Very knowledgeable of the area. Just about anything we could think of was within walking distance. Took a Lyft to downtown and it was less than 20 bucks. Just know if there are multiple people in your group, it's a studio setup so the bedroom is not private. Great place, can't beat the location, felt safe! Would stay there again!

True to Reviews

  • 5 of 5

Instead of repeating all the wonderful reviews already on VRBO, I'll just say that my experience was consistent with all the other positive comments. At 6' tall, I never had an issue with the low ceiling (6'4" - 6'6"), even when showering. Great neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Easy access to public transportation taking you to many of Chicago's touristy destinations and districts. When not taking the train, it's centrally located to make an easy drive to other locations. We'll definitely consider staying here again if/when we visit Chicago again.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The AC was having some issues but Paul responded to our needs and took care of the issue. The location was great. Convenient to the concerts we were going to and we really enjoyed just wandering around Bucktown.
