    Response from CC & Tun:

    Thanks, Soon-Young and Joe! We're glad it worked out for you guys. Let us know if you're in Chicago in the future!

  • I loved the hosts, location and place so much that I decided to add two extra days to my stay! This place is clean, comfy, private, quiet and safe. It's set up with everything you might need, including fast wifi, cable TV, fridge/micro, extra blankets/towels, bottled water, extra heater/fan, travel guides, and more. It's easy to walk a few blocks and find loads of food options (from all over the world, at all price ranges), bars and entertainment. The Metra is also right around the corner, which gets you downtown in about 15 minutes. This was my first Air BnB experience, and I'll definitely do it again! Thank you for your easy-going hospitality, CC and Tun!

    Response from CC & Tun:

    Hi Danny, thank you for choosing to stay with us! We hope you had a great visit. We'd be happy to host you again in the future.

  • My stay in Chicago was amazing! A big part of that was how at home and safe I felt at CC and Tun's (website hidden) and Tun are both warm and welcoming. They were happy to answer any questions I had.

    The entire space was clean and comfortable. The huge closet and amazing shower were big pluses for me. The space has a lot of natural light, which I loved. Even though the weather was cold I felt comfortable inside.

    It was a short walk to the Brown and Red line trains and local bus stops. Getting around the city was a breeze. The food around here is amazing. I could not have asked for more during my stay! I would definitely stay here again!

    Response from CC & Tun:

    Thanks, Tania! We enjoyed hosting you, too, and would be glad to host you again!

  • I found Tun and CC while looking for a place to stay for about a month when starting my new job in Chicago. After several emails back and forth they decided to let me use their basement room for my extended stay. They were very accommodating and very helpful. Checked up on me at least once a week to make sure my stay was going well. The space was very clean and it honestly felt like home. Very close to transportation and easy to navigate the area. The neighborhood has just about any resturant and bar within walking distance. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay on the north side of Chicago.

    Thanks, Joe! It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. You're welcome back any time.

  • We enjoyed our stay at CC & Tun's. Their place is clean, comfortable and very cozy. The house is centrally located and close to many bars and (website hidden) & Tun were very gracious hosts with plenty of advice and suggestions. We definitely recommend their place and will stay with them again if we visit Chicago.

  • CC and Tun B were great hosts! My mom came to visit me in Chicago but my apartment is too small, so I found her this place to stay and she loved it, next time she visits she is going to stay there again!

    Response from CC & Tun:

    Thank you, Neta! We'd gladly welcome your mom Laura again when she's back in town. It was a pleasure hosting her and working with you on the arrangements. Take care!

  • Although Chicago is quite cold during our stay, CC&Tun's place is very cozy for us. We have a private bathroom and a private room on the basement of the house. The space heater and air conditioning is warm enough inside the room. It is about 15 mins walk to red line and you could find almost every kinds of restaurant about 5 mins walk away.
    Remember to bring heavy cloth to Chicago. And this place is highly recommended.

We love to show travelers around Chicago as much as we like to travel. When Tun isn't teaching at a public school and CC isn't editing and writing magazine articles, we're rock climbing or eating our way through the city. Together, we've been to over 45 countries and lived in five. 他會說漢語, y ella habla español, if you need a translator. Come stay in our urban oasis!
