We were told that the door would be unlocked and the key would be inside. We arrived at the property and the door was locked. We called, text, e-mailed JoAnne and did not hear back from her until the next day when we filed a complaint with airbnb.
We were able to get in the property through a window otherwise we would not have had anywhere to stay and there were 6 of us to find housing for. When we got in the property there were keys on the table but none of the keys fit any of the doors. We had to leave the doors unlocked when we left the property for the day risking all of our belongings
The property is in need of repairs. The kitchen sink is leaking, one of the bathroom vanity drawers is broken off the track. The apartment floor goes downhill and is not level. The apartment needs a deep cleaning.
We had the most amazing time in Chicago. The house was perfect! The only problem was the last night the people above us had a large party and kept us awake until 4am, but I'm sure that's unusual. The house was close to everything, and I would use it again in a heart beat.
Neighborhood is terrific, with great supermarket a block and a half way. Restaurants also are close by, including one with the best stuffed deep dish Chicago pizza anywhere. House, which was't as near easy public transportation as we would have liked (although Uber served as a comparatively inexpensive travel mode for all six of us at once), has comfortable, homey atmosphere, almost as if we were home. All the beds are comfortable (one in master bedroom even beat ours because of a down topper over the regular mattress). Appliances are not the most modern but all are workable, usable. Only problem was a leak from above, which we discovered late at night. It was remedied when we moved one bed a few inches; it was fixed first thing next morning. Not cheap, but over all, we were satisfied and pleased.
I would not recommend this apt. The apt had an extremely musty odor . In addition there was mold throughout kitchen sink and bathrooms. The bed linens also had the musty smell present. The beds and pillows were not comfy for a $485/nite accomodation. The bed is on a downhill slope with your head being on the downhill. The chairs have lost their spring. I would have liked the unit to be a little closer to train stop.
It is convenient to a supermarket which is 1/2 block walk.
The neighborhood and location is wonderful. Walkable to so many things. The apartment is roomy as shown in the photographs, but very dark with little natural light.
The apartment was good and in a great neighborhood.
Great finding an apartment with 3 bedrooms (4 beds) and 2 bathrooms!
Walking distance from a supermarket, eateries and train station.
Never did get to meet JoAnne but she was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Communicating with her was easy.
