This has been our third visit to Jeremy and Jordan's loft. We come to visit our son daughter-in law ,and grandaughter and I feel that Jeremy and Jordan are our extended family. I can't say enough about their concern for our every need . Can't wait for our next visit .
This place is great and Jeremy / Jordan could not have been nicer.
From the minute you walked in, everything felt "at home" and easy to relax after working all day. A real pleasure to come home to a place this nice.
The access to the location is easy and central for my meetings. The street has nice local joints for music and food. Just a quick drive away to anything more fancy.
I look forward to staying here again.
Ok where do I start? if theres anyone in doubt in renting this apartment... let me tell you something. You are making a huge mistake. The place is AMAZING. this place and their hosts does not deserve 5 stars , they deserve 5 diamonds plus! Jordan was absolutelty very nice. Everyhing in this apartment is well organized, functional and extremely clean... i've been in several places with airbnb and one fine stay. This is by far my best experience ever! Everything is as described with a little extra. Theres a restaurant close to the apartment "SKL" they gave us the first round of drinks for free with our meal because we were staying at the apartment..(awesome)...beyond expectations. If i come back to chicago; i hope i can stay here again if not ill be very dissapointed..
This is a fourth floor flat on a street of small shops and restaurants. The apartment is an open floor plan, that is, the bedrooms are partially open to the living area, with open ceilings. The kitchen is well equipped-we cooked several meals; the beds are comfortable; the hearing and cooling are quickly responsive-important I. The Chicago area. The neighborhood is pleasant for walking and browsing.
Nuestra estancia ha sido inolvidable!! Nos hemos sentido como en nuestro Hogar. Todo un lujo de detalles. Zumos en la nevera, naranjas, yogures, aguas, flores en el baño... Lugar perfecto para cualquiera que desee visitar Chicago sintiendose en su (website hidden) gracias Jordan y Jeremmy
Jeremy and Jordan were incredible hosts. They answered all of our questions and even offered to make bicycle rentals available for us. We can't say enough about how "handsome" the loft was. It provided a great respite from our busy days.
Wonderful place and very spacious. Great hosts. Jordan is an accomplished interior decorator and it shows in the condo. The balcony is very nice with chairs and there are many windows for natural light and fresh air. The condo has all of what you would require. Jeremy and Jordan are always accessible and willing to help.
About the Host, Jeremy And Jordan
My husband and I bought the condo in November of 2011, and ever since we turned the key it has been a labor of love. Self described property and construction enthusiasts, we remodeled everything ourselves except for a few key pieces which warranted a strict learning curve. We hope to remodel more properties in the near future before the baby train ensues! :)
