Overall, our experience was decent. As hosts, Steve & JoAnne do a great job and are very responsive. However, after other experiences on Airbnb, this would not be a place that I would choose to stay in again. The rental space could use a lot of TLC. It felt dirty (even though a cleaning crew is said to maintain it). It could use a deep clean. We also had issues with the beds & bathrooms. On our first night there, one of the twin beds collapsed on us in the middle of the night. The beds in the other rooms were tolerable, but certainly not desirable. We also had issues with the toilets not flushing. We notified Steve and he was more than willing to send a plumber to address the issue. Lastly, I know this is something that is out of their control, but the walls to this place are paper thin! This was an issue when trying to sleep. Not sure which neighbor, but someone literally had either a tv or a radio turned on very loud 24/7. I am not exaggerating. It made it quite difficult to sleep.
I understand that being in Chicago and this being an older unit that you can't expect perfection. However, I lived in Chicago for over 8 years so I know what can be expected. Sadly, this unit fell well beneath my expectations. Again, this is not a personal jab at the owners (they were very responsive). But, this is not a place I would stay at again or recommend to anyone.

5 friends stayed at the apartment for a weekend. Each had never used this service before. We found it to be nice and served our needs well. I would use JoAnne as a host again.

I did not meet host but I did arrive right when housekeeping was cleaning. Overall, the location is the west-side of Lakeview so its a bit of a walk to the L-train. The living room is really nice, but the rest of the apartment is somewhat run-down. I'd probably stay here again if the beds were not so squeaky and the one of the neighbors did not leave their dog outside all night barking.
