Great host, picked me up from the airport and dropped me off, gave me a mini tour of the neighborhood as well. Fast to respond to requests and very pleasant to deal with. Would love to stay here again.
Ron was a great host. His place is absolutely amazing and very comfortable. And the view... the view is breathtaking. It was just a short walk from McCormick center, which was quite important for us. The city center is a little bit longer walk, or a 5- minute Uber ride :)
We can highly recommend Ron's apartment!
Der Gastgeber hat uns freundlicherweise an einem Treffpunkt in der Stadt abgeholt und zum Apt. gefahren. Die Realität entsprach der Beschreibung. Der Blick auf den Lake Michigan war bestens.
The condo is located near the South border of downtown. If you like to walk you can reach the heart of downtown also on foot. The area is very quiet and safe, even during the night. There are some places where to have breakfast or lunch.
The apartment is very very nice. It's at the 19th floor in an elegant condo. It is spacious and bright, with all you can need: tv, hob, oven, microwave, fridge, coffe maker, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, A/C.
It was clean and orderly and we felt at home during our visit.
The view is amazing: you see the lake and downtown and the most known buildings.
Ronald and his wife are very polite. They welcomed us with open arms. We found also our breakfast in the fridge for the next day: banane, bagels, cheese, juice. They recommended us several places where to eat and gave us a lot of tips of Chicago. Ronald was always reliable by phone or email for any request or question. We really appreciated that.
It was a really great experience and we strongly recommend to stay at Ronald's apartment if you are planning to visit Chicago.
I was in town for a conference at McCormick Place. From start to finish, from the overall experience down to little details, the stay was perfect.
First off, the host is kind and helpful and made everything a breeze. I appreciated nice, unexpected touches like orange juice and bagels just for me.
The location is great. The apartment is convenient coming from Midway airport, just a short ride on the orange line. It is also just a few blocks from McCormick and walk-able (about 20 minutes at a leisurely pace). The cab fare is under $5.
The apartment itself is the perfect combination of beauty, comfort, and convenience. One wall of the living room/bedroom is essentially windows, so views of downtown and the lake are great. The vaulted ceilings make everything feel very spacious. The bed and couch are very comfortable. The washer and dryer are convenient. You'll have everything you could want or need.
Ron was a wonderful host. Answered all of my questions even the stupidest ones :), picked me up in Loop at arrival, welcomed me with some delicious deserts. The place is also terrific and the view is astonishing. All of my friends are so jealous looking the pictures I took from the apartment. The neighborhood is also friendly and safe with good restaurants and close location to every major attractions.
A little about me...
People tell me I am easy going, social and love people. My passion is outdoor activities. I'm married (to a beautiful wife and I have 4 "almost" grown-up kids.
We enjoy family, traveling, downhill skiing, outdoor recreation, and the exciting city of Chicago.
