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.

I highly recommend this apartment, a great walkable area and the owner Paul has a book with great suggestions on things to do while in Bucktown. I can't say enough but my wife and I have a great long weekend trip and can't wait to come back.

Welcoming and comfy apartment in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Chicago for a few nights to help our son move in to his Wicker Park apt. Paul's home was a perfect spot for us to stay and relax. The apt. Is nicely appointed, and we appreciated the snacks! We love the neighborhood-great shops and restaurants within walking distance. Will certainly stay here again!

Charming Apartment in a great part of town

  • 5 of 5

One of our best VRBO's yet. You can't beat the location or the hospitality of the owner. This house is just blocks from the shops and restaurants of Wicker Park and a quick uber or bus ride to anywhere else in the city. Paul was the most gracious host and ensured our stay was without flaw. The apartment truly has everything you need for an extended stay in one of the countries greatest cities. We felt like we were a part of the fabric of the city here and the price was unbeatable. I highly recommend this property, you wont be disappointed.

My son and l stayed four nights. The unit was comfortable with all the necessities. The owner (Paul) was nearby if anything was needed. The neighborhood was packed full of great restaurants, shops, and conveniences. We had a great visit to Chicago.
