Interaction with Guests
We will be present, living our daily lives. Erin has a varied schedule and works partially from home. Alex will work on weekdays. We are rather versatile, we love meeting new people and getting to know the people that come through our place and if you require some quiet time, it is easy to find in your bedroom.
We love that our neighborhood is fairly quiet, but centrally located for easy access to almost anywhere in the city. The historically Italian neighborhood offers a few small quirky local restaurants within walking distance and a wider variety of eclectic options in the neighboring neighborhoods.

Erin and Alex were great hosts! They were friendly and made us feel very comfortable! The flat is amazing: it's very clean and the location is perfect for sightseeing because the subway is just 5 minutes away! Thank you Alex and Erin
We are quite new to Airbnb but even in our wildest dream the experience wasn't as perfect as it was at Erin and Alex's space. Their apartment is big, luminous, brand new and super clean, they have a private bathroom for guests, the bedroom is beautifully decorated and the bed is very comfortable. As if this wasn't enough, breakfast is included and the hosts are very nice, welcoming, interesting/interested. Highly recommend the place!
Erin and Alex are great hosts and we had a nice time at their place. They're both extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. They patiently answered all our questions ;-)
The apartment is spacious and clean. Breakfast was included and it was very good.
Although there are not many restaurants/bars/shops which are really close by, you can easily take public transport to go wherever you want. The blue line stop is only a few minutes walk.
We had a great time there: Erin and Alex made my second Airbnb experience a positive one.
Erin and Alex made us feel very welcome! It was great to be able to sit down and talk with them, and when we wanted privacy it was easy to find. The apartment looked exactly like what is shown in the pictures, and the bedroom was bigger than expected. Everything was clean and the breakfast they provided was great! The CTA was easily accessible from the apartment, and it didn't take very long to get downtown. This was my first time using airbnb, and I couldn't be more pleased! Much more appealing than a hotel. I will be more than happy to book here again the next time we visit Chicago!
Erin and Alex are friendly, hospitable and nice! They really made us feel welcome and took the time to give us advice on the city.
The room was larger than it seemed in the photos, so we had lots of room for all our stuff. Everything was clean and functional.
The breakfast "buffet" was awesome, with different kinds of cereal, fruit, bread, yoghurt etcetera. Much better and nicer than most hotels.
Overall, we give this place our highest recommendation!
Erin and Alex were welcoming and talkative yet respectful of my privacy. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the room was comfortable and sunny, with its own little balcony for fresh air. Though I did not partake of the food, they had breakfast food available and coffee ready to just turn on in the morning. Their place is close to the Blue Line, which I got to know quite well. I would recommend staying with them for anyone visiting Chicago.
Alex and Erin greeted us and showed us around their house. They are detailed, even prepared breakfast food for us which made us felt comfortable.
The neighbourhood around is quiet and it's near to bus stops. It will be hard to get a cab but all in all, getting public transport to get around or to downtown won't be a problem.
Alex is an architect who was born and raised in Chicago. He loves both playing and listening to music. Erin works from home on a few different ventures, among them encouraging and empowering the dreamers and creators of our fine city. Together we love beer, wine, cooking and eating food of all types. We love exploring the city on our bikes.
Our place is pretty relaxed. It is private enough, that if you want alone time, its easy to take as much as you need, but if you want to be social and we're around, we love getting to know new people and hanging out, or showing people some of the places we love.
