My friends and I just love this place. We've stayed twice and it feels like our home away from home. Clean, comfortable, and in an excellent location. The street feels residential but there are great bars and restaurants nearby. Plus, it's close to public transportation. Henry is an incredible host! He's extremely professional and kind. I can't say enough positive things about my experiences at Henry's place. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Chicago.

Everything about Henry's place was perfect. I have had several Airbnb's where the host isn't present or you never meet them, but with Henry, we arrived and met him immediately. He gave us a quick tour, and then left us on our own. The place was exactly as described, with 3 beds and 2 bathrooms. Nothing fancy, but definitely gets the job done. We were mainly looking for a home base while we explored the city and this was perfect. It's close to Wrigley field and all of the Wrigleyville bars and restaurants, and it's also close to other pockets of Chicago, as well as the train so you can really get anywhere you need to get. Henry also came through big the last night: we rented a car for one day because we were travelling outside the city. I neglected to notice we needed a parking pass, so I reached out to Henry around midnight when we were on our way back to ask if it's possible he would have a parking pass/permit for us. He responded immediately to say he would drop one off at our place. He was staying on the 3rd floor of our building, so he's extremely responsive if you need anything at all. I would have been okay if he couldn't provide the pass since I texted him so late, but he definitely exceeded our expectations on that. All in all it was a great time and he's a great host.

This is a great place to stay near Wrigley and the train to access other areas of Chicago. It's less than a ten minute walk to Wrigley and the train. The host also lives in the building and is very helpful. It was great staying in this neighborhood rather than spending more to stay in a hotel downtown.

Everything was meticulous and the transaction went very smoothly. The apartment is very spacious and livable, and Henry was easy to reach throughout our stay.

Henry is a great host. Always willing to go above and beyond all of your needs. Would recommend to anyone coming to Chicago especially to Wrigley Field as it is a 5 min walk away in a beautiful neighbourhood. Thanks Henry!

Howdy,
My name is Henry. I'm a longtime resident and local restaurateur in the neighborhood. I enjoy hosting Airbnb guests and giving them a warm welcome to the city.

Most people would say I'm easy-going personally but enthusiastic when it comes to hospitality. My focus is enhancing your experience in by making your stay easy and comfortable. With almost three years of hosting under my belt, I can honestly say Airbnb has been a rewarding experience and a great way to meet new friends from all over the world.
