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, 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.
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 local restaurants within walking distance that serve all types of things including home made ice cream, chicago style hot dogs, chinese etc.

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.
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.
Enjoyed our stay with Erin and Alex tremendously. Their place is just a few blocks off the Blue Line, which was convenient. The room was clean, cozy, and on a particularly cold night we were furnished with extra blankets and a space heater.
In the morning they had continental breakfast and got coffee ready to go.
I'd definitely recommend staying here.
Erin and Alex have are wonderful hosts, genuinely concerned about your comfort and stay. They have a beautiful and comfortable home. They went out of their way to help me during my stay, whether it was helping work out the best transport (by cost and time) to a spot or even letting me check in for the airport on their computer when I broke my laptop or even dropping me off to meet a friend. Erin is also an excellent cook and invited me to join their meals. Both Erin and Alex are easy going and great to talk with. I would highly recommend staying with them, they went well above and beyond my expectations.
We stayed for a few nights during our first visit in Chicago. The place was clean, quiet & very accessible from train/downtown. Erin and Alex, thank you for your wonderful hospitality!! We had a great time in Chicago and want to visit again!
Alex & Erin were great hosts! We felt right at home and had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back in the future.
Erin and Alex were very kind, thoughtful, and accommodating hosts. Their place is very clean and comfortable, with fun decor to make you feel right at home :) My friend and I really appreciated the breakfast items available, especially since we were there for a conference and were on the go most of the time. They even provided to-go cups for coffee/tea, which I thought was most thoughtful :) I'll be easily recommending their place to any friends visiting Chicago!
My boyfriend and I decided to make a long road trip on our way to St. Louis for my work. We wanted to experience Chicago for the first time in the best way possible... Staying with locals. Erin and Alex's place could not have been more perfect!! Great location and great loft! They gave it a real B&B feel with everything laid out in our room (including chocolates on our bed! Score!) and a variety of breakfast items on the counter for us in the morning (including having the coffee maker already set up to where all my boyfriend had to do was turn it on). They are very personable and welcoming! We really enjoyed talking with them and their recommendations on things to see/do were perfect! Awesome experience and we'll definitely be back!
Erin and Alex were lovely hosts :) The room was very comfortable and cozy. I felt very welcomed and enjoyed really nice conversation with Erin and Alex. I just remembered that I forgot to eat the chocolate they left on my bed! Thanks for a great first airbnb experience :)
