We are rather versatile, in that if you require some quiet time, it is easy to find, but we also love meeting new people and getting to know the people that come through our place. And if our schedule allows, we love showing people around our fair city.

  • Erin and Alex were wonderful hosts for Nic and me this weekend. They were very welcoming and friendly, providing a perfect balance of conversation and space. Their apartment, the room, and the bathroom were so nice and comfortable. Everything was just right. We would stay with them again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much for having us!

  • Erin and Alex continue to be wonderful hosts and my repeated stays at their home are always comfortable, clean and convenient. I would certainly recommend to anyone working, vacationing or just visiting Chicago. It's a short walk to the Western\Blue Line and is a 5-7 min cab ride from the Loop. The accommodations are always welcoming and the stay is consistently enjoyable.

  • Erin and Alex's place was great! We were visiting for an interview at UIC and the apartment is very close to the medical campus and the blue line. Everything went smoothly and we couldn't have had a better stay. I would highly recommend their place for anyone traveling to an interview or planning on sightseeing in the downtown area.

  • Erin and Alex were great hosts ! Very friendly, they made us feel like home during our stay ! They are very accommodating since we arrived from the airport around 2AM and Erin was still up to welcome us! The room and the private bathroom are very comfortable, clean and quiet. They also provided us with a space heater and additional blankets for chilly mornings and a very nice breakfast ! The apartment is well located, very accessible from downtown with the Blue line.
    I highly recommend to stay there !

  • I was at Erin's and Alex's apartment for just one night and I was completley satisfied. Looks like on the pictures, the room and the bathroom are clean, she (I met him just for a couple of minutes) was very easygoing as we sat down on the couch to have some very good coffee. It was very friendly getting some included breakfast and I liked the room-view on Willis-Tower. I would definitly come back to this place whenever I will be back in Chicago, highly recommended. See you next time.

  • Erin and Alex Are great hosts! They are very accommodating and their home is spotless. It is close to downtown without all the noise and traffic. This was our first experience with Airbnb and they made it amazing. They were extremely helpful with navigating the transit system in Chicago and any other needs/questions we had. We also had plenty of privacy even when we were all in the home together. I would definitely recommend staying with Erin & Alex if you need a place in Chicago.

  • I came here for my UIC interview and it was ~1.5 miles away. Great, free, and available parking right in front of the house. Great place to stay with lots of room and a very comfortable room. They were able to provide an iron for my interview day. You also have your own bathroom and had a small room heater to make the room comfortable. Talked to Erin and Alex for a bit and they were very friendly and informative.

    January 2014
  • Alex and Erin hosted me before my interview day. The room and the private bathroom are clean and neat, bed is very comfortable. Breakfast is offered with many kinds of food and fresh brewed coffee. The place is 5min to train station or bus stop by walk, with many cheap nice restaurants around. I recommend a Chinese food place called "Jason's" on Taylor's street. Overall Alex and Erin made my fist experience with airbnb a very warm and great one.

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.
