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 Chicago

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.

location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location and host! We came into the city on the train and Paul was very gracious in arranging an early check-in. Would love to see a Keurig for coffee versus the current coffee maker and the shower needs to be updated, but can't beat this place for the price. Loved the fresh flower arrangement! A stop at Club Lucky for a pamplemousse cocktail by Ramon is a must! Wish we could've stayed longer 🍻

Great Location, Easy Parking, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the location. Paul was so helpful and carried our multitude of bags down the spiral staircase on arrival and departure. We really couldn't have done it on our own since we both have knee injuries at this time. Difficult stairs for our standard poodles but they were used to them by the time we left. He also gave me a beautiful bouquet for Mother's Day...above and beyond. Everything was very clean and comfortable in the unit.

Great space with a lot of hospitality

  • 5 of 5

I rented this space for some family who were coming in for a graduation, since we didn't have room for everyone at our place. The hosts were so accommodating, and very nice. Their place is very cozy and cute, but also updated and very well taken care of. They also had a small little kitchenette, that offered snacks, and some tea and beverages. It was just really quaint and comfortable. It's also extremely close to the Bucktown/Wicker Park area, which was so nice to be able to walk to restaurants and shops, and also hop on the train to head to the downtown area. I would highly recommend.
