This home's historic name is the Lunak House, after its first recorded residents, Jarislav and Rose Lunak. It is believed to have been built around 1915, though it may have been present earlier, as a sided-over barn door between the 13th Ave windows suggests it was first used as a barn or outbuilding. If you are interested in the history of the house or the NewBo/Czech Village neighborhood, see the "evaluation of significance" in this book you will find at the house.
The house was flooded nearly to the first floor ceilings in 2008. Starting in 2013, it was rehabbed completely. Photos of its pre-rehab condition are included in the book as well. If you can't tell where a photo was taken, there is a photo key at the end.
Toegang voor gasten
The rental includes the whole house, patio, and parking area. The sofa bed is in a living room with room-darkening shades and doors that close it off for privacy, to form a nice bedroom if needed.
Interactie met gasten
The house has a keypad to allow you to check in at your convenience. I am happy to come over if issues arise, but the setup allows guests to be very independent. Just let me know your approximate arrival time so I can make sure all is ready for you!
I want you to be able to reach me with questions or reports of anything needing repair or attention. A text or call during your stay should be responded to within an hour in most cases. My cell number is in the book in the house. You can also message through Airbnb, which goes directly to my phone.
If you are unable to reach me in an urgent situation, there are back up contacts in the book, and they will make sure that I get in touch with you.
