Awesome stay...I've been working double shifts and appreciate the tub. Would love to get more coffee in the house. The machine is great. Thanks for your hospitality.
Tudo que o anúncio prometia foi comprido. Uma ótima estrutura de cozinha, banheiro e quarto. A anfitriã estava sempre presente para qualquer dúvida. Achei apenas que o local era um pouco distante das estações de metro, porém tinha uma estação de ônibus bem em frente. Ótimo custo/benefício.
This house and this family were my second family who living in america.
Friendly, kind, and peaceful, especially very cleaned.
You will very satisfied if you book this house. No doubt, no regret.
Imagine this, you arrive in a big city ready for work and the place you arranged to stay at is completely unsuitable. I came to Bunmi and Drew for a break from the aweful surroundings I found myself in. Then Drew called and made me a great offer for the next couple of months. I was so grateful. Decent sized room with a tv and desk...queen bed, closet, chest of drawers and I share a bath with any guest living next door. Great soaking tub I used it a few times. Coffee and oatmeal free in the morning, this place has been a deliverance for me. So welcoming and comfortable, i felt much safer here. Centrally located to 95% of my work sites I'll be making a bid for next year. Thanks Bunmi and Drew.
This was my first bnb experience. It was a fine place to stay. Very quiet neighborhood and the bed was comfortable. The shared bath worked fine for me but probably wouldn't stay there with a date or partner. For the price, it was great.
Always good with Drew and Bunmi, I am a returning visitor to their home. I will be returning there again and again as I go to Chicago often.
We didn't have a chance to see our host because we arrived into town later than expected. But, the home was perfect just as we had expected. The location was great! I'm from Chicago so I was very familiar with the Bronzeville area but hadn't realized how much it had changed.
We stayed in one of the smaller rooms. Everything was perfect. We had plenty of room and space. We had 1 maybe 2 other house guests during our stay. You really couldn't tell because it was very quiet.
Will definitely stay here again during our next visit. We highly recommend Bunmi & Drew's spot!!

We're global travelers who love interacting with interesting people from all over the world. Travel is our passion, having savored the rich aroma of stew in Ilorin, Nigeria. Taken in the sunset with St. Lucia's Piton Mountains in the background. Climbed the steps of a Mayan Temple in Central America. Feasted on freshly caught lobster along Maine's southern coast.
We also enjoy great music and experiencing cuisines from around the world, especially our favorite, Vietnamese Phô from Saigon Grill in Durham, North Carolina on Roxboro St. off Exit 177 on I-85. It's a must, particularly No. 8 X-Large bowl, if you ever happen to be in the Tar Heel State. You won't be disappointed!
While our exciting careers keep us highly engaged and quite busy, we always find time to enjoy life and share experiences with the amazing people who choose to stay with us when we're at home.
Thus far, we've had the privilege of hosting guests from Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Philippines, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and from all over the United States. The list keeps growing!
Together, as a married couple, we make a great team!
Bunmi & Drew
