My husband and I had a great time in Chicago, split between two places (both of which were great.) Afri's home is clean and inviting, with beautiful art throughout. There is a large peaceful backyard and a sweet lil pup. It's on a quiet street and we got to pretty much everything we wanted to do in a few minutes by car. She made us feel very welcome and we would definitely stay here again!

I had a rental car so driving downtown was easy for me. I spent most of the time exploring Chicago but it was a very comfortable room when it was time to rest. It was very private and the restroom was conveniently next door. Afri was very fast in responding to messages, all in all it was a pleasant stay.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time staying in Afri's beautiful home. Afri was very quick to respond to all needs and concerns. She was always accessible but afforded us plenty of privacy. On top of the host being fantastic and the home being beautiful, the location was ideal. Her home is located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood and with my car it only took me about 20 minutes to get downtown. Highly recommend and would come again!

Afri User ProfileAfri is a superhost.

I am an outgoing person that loves to travel, go out, and have fun. When I am home, I am quiet and cool, usually reading, grading papers or watching TV. I am easy to get along with because I love people, especially children. I love to dance, workout, and entertain guest in my backyard (in the summer). I love sharing my home with visitors because I enjoy meeting new people!
