We can be very flexible with move in and move out times as long as we can get this apartment home cleaned for the next airbnb client.
It is best to contact us via the airbnb website at all times. I get constant text messages and I am always on this website so I should be able to answer your questions promptly.
On route from the airport, JoAnne was very responsive when I contacted her for the entry code. She also offered any help if needed.
The apartment itself is cozy and does require a trip upstairs- so keep that in mind if you are unable to navigate a stairway. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare my own meals and there are 2 coffee makers- one small and large.
The neighborhood is walkable, so I was able to find everything I needed within a few blocks. A couple blocks away is Old Town, where you can find groceries, restaurants, etc. Chicago is such a beautiful city and this apartment is in walking distance of gorgeous architecture and beautiful Lincoln Park and the Lake Michigan shoreline. I look forward to visiting Chicago again and will be requesting another stay here!
The studio was great! Very convenient check in and in a great location. I will definitely be back.
This was our first experience with airbnb, and it was a good one! The place is in a great location, in old town, and just a couple blocks to the train station. We had a wonderful stay, the only criticism I might have is that they never communicated where to find the parking passes ahead of time, so we were a little worried about getting a ticket the first night, but Joanne replied to my messages within a couple hours to tell us where they were.
Overall we stayed 4 nights, and Gabe no real complaints!
Very unclear about check-in. In the description it says flexible. So I contacted the host numerous times and had no response. The day we got there we had no code to get in. Waited for hours to get a response. Even after contacting Airbnb. Very disappointing. Plus it was my birthday. Other than that the room was decent.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Chicago, but would hesitate before staying at this property again.
-Location is excellent, right in the heart of charming Old Town with easy access by foot to the lake, shops & restaurants & public transit
-JoAnne was very responsive- always quick to reply to any questions or concerns we had.
-Comfortable bed, clean & relatively modern bathroom; sufficient amount of space for a couple, including an office desk
-While the pictures are technically accurate, they don't reflect how run down & shabby the property is. Having lived in many older apartments in cities I certainly don't expect every finish to be perfect. However, the carpets were spotted & very dirty and there was significant mold on the ceiling of the shower. Also, the windows were very old and didn't open, and some had spiderwebs on the edges inside. The ventilation therefore wasn't great & there was a musty feel to the place.
My husband and I wanted to love this place but overall the negatives outweighed the positives
Beautiful and cozy! Perfect for a couple or solo. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Lovely host with clear communication, you couldn't find better in this location with this price!
Beautiful studio in Lincoln Park. Great location and host was very easy to work with. Would definitely stay again.
