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 variety of small quirky local restaurants within walking distance and a wider variety of eclectic options in the neighboring neighborhoods.

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.
They were so kind me and they always tried to understand me because I can't speak English well .
A room is so nice and clean and wonderful and comfortable;))
I can recommend this plan with confidence!!!
Erin and Alex were very welcoming and we had a wonderful time in Chicago. The apartment and room were very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and found some excellent restaurants. The breakfast was great was a nice start to the day. We took the CTA downtown and that was close and very easy.
Really nice experience with Erin and Alex and they are greatly considerate to arrange the room and transport card for us! Also their friend Melissa is a really nice guy who introduces the city and the transportation and helps us to check in.The apartment is clean and well-designed. They make us feel at home with the hearty breakfast including milk, yogurt, eggs, coffee, croissant, and cereals... Hope to see them next time in Chicago!
Our experience with Erin and Alex was excellent again. They are both very welcoming and warm. This is our second time with them and it was just as expected and even better. Alex offered us wine and conversation, and Erin was so gracious to let us use her printer for our boarding passes. We are very comfortable to give them our highest recommendation.
Erin and Alex were wonderful hosts! They have the cleanest, neatest, most artsy apartment in Chicago. They were very friendly and down-to-earth. They had to leave early in the morning and left a huge breakfast spread out for us and even sliced melon in the fridge. I would definitely stay with them when visiting Chicago again.
Erin and Alex were wonderful hosts! Their home was great. The neighborhood was a real neighborhood, not touristy and plastic.
Erin and Alex made us feel welcome and chatted with us when we wanted and they were available. Very freindly and open people.
This was our first use of Airbnb and we had the best possible experience with Erin and Alex.
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.
