Interaction with Guests
Our busy and fluctuating schedules may not always allow for us to spend much time with our guests, however one of us is usually always at home during the day. That said, we have had the pleasure of hosting some of the most friendly and courteous people we've ever met anywhere and we've had a great deal of fun!
Bridgeport is an up and coming neighborhood with a growing community of small businesses and art collectives. We are located close to downtown, US Cellular Field (Chicago White Sox), Chinatown, and the 31st Street Beach.

We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Michael and Jackie's apartment. Michael is a sweet and welcoming guy who's a self-described hands-off host. The apartment is clean, spacious, and homey. During our three night stay, I always found a parking spot right outside the apartment, as the listing describes. Almost every restaurant, bar, or cafe within a few blocks has 4 or 5 stars, so it was nice to have a lot of walkable options. I'd like to stay here again next time I'm in Bridgeport!
We had a great time at Michael and Jackie's. Their apartment is just as pictured, the bed as super comfortable and their pets were very sweet. We walked to the sox game and several other shops, bars and restaurants in Bridgeport. We also really enjoyed the divy bike rentals. The apartment was convenient to downtown and transportation and we didn't have a problem finding parking right outside the apartment.
It was my first time on Airbnb. I was kinda nervous at the beginning, but Michael and his lovely dog were a pretty nice host. I would say listing description was accurate enough. Room was clean and small,but enough for 2 people. There is a nice coffee shop so close to apt. Free parking was the best part about the neighborhood.
Michael and Jackie were both very friendly and accommodating, and even offered us a ride to and from the train with our luggage. We also enjoyed the company of their pets, who were very friendly and fun to be around. The room was simple but very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. The walk to and from the train got a bit lengthy day after day, but it simply forced us to plan our trips into the city better. Great value!
Michael and Jackie were great hosts, making us feel so welcome and at home! We loved the local feel of the neighbourhood, it made our first stay in Chicago even more memorable! We used the city cards Michael and Jackie left in our room a lot, and they proved to be amazing, we covered so much ground in a very little time! I would recommend staying at Michael and Jackie to anyone (except if you are allergic to pets!).
Our host greeted us at the door and was friendly and helpful. The room was nice with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. The pets were friendly and a welcome addition to our experience. The neighborhood location was very convenient - we were in downtown within 20 minutes of driving in the morning rush. We found parking easily around the corner and only wish we had more time to stay.
