Elisa is the best host experience I have had on Airbnb. She is kind and warm and immediately makes you feel at home.
I had a great time staying here, the house is always kept clean and has a modern and classy feel. Everything is available nearby and western blue line is conveniently located about a 2 minute walk away.
The best part of my stay was getting to know Elisa, she wont hesitate to sit down and chat with you on various subjects and she always has suggestions about where to eat and have a good time in the city.
I truly enjoyed my stay here and had a lasting impression that I wont soon forget.
Elisa was the most gracious host. She greeted me at the door and she was very welcoming. She gave me a tour of a beautiful home and I was pleasantly surprised at how well kept and modern everything was.
She also made sure I knew where all the nearest stores were and she knew all the best bars/restaurants in the area too.
Elisa was very easy to talk to and she really made me feel at home.
Elisa was nice and sweet and a very accommodating host even though we didn't really see her that much. She even offered my friend her coat to use while we were here! The house was very clean which was important cause I have allergies. We came during a sudden cold shift and the house was so comfortably warm (not too warm) that we ended up staying in the room most of the days! We shared the bathroom with the other airbnb guest and it was well kept. The place is located not too far from the cool stuff of wicker park although it's a little bit of a trek. BUT it's near Armitridge where there is newer stuff popping up. I'll definitely look to stay at Elisa's next time.
Elisa has a beautiful and very clean condo. I can't say enough what a pleasure it was to stay with her. She is the best most kind host you can ask for . The location of the condo is ideal. Can't beat it for the price. I will stay here again and most Definitely recommend it
This was my first experience with Airbnb and I’m truly scared that it might never get better than this.
Elisa absolutely lived up to the numerous 5 star reviews, being very welcoming right from the start by offering to meet in the nearby train station. This trend continued all throughout my stay, being helpful in planning what I would do in the city (this was my first time in Chicago), and went all the way to inviting me to join her for lunch with her friends and driving me to one of the places I wanted to visit (though I would like to think I am somehow special and she doesn’t do this with every guest she has LOL). Una sorpresa extra es que Elisa habla español :)
The listed space is totally accurate and I would even say that the pictures don’t do justice to it. The room was a perfect place to rest after long days.
The location is perfect for both going to the airport and downtown. There are restaurants and bars nearby (Belly Shack right by the station was a delicious find), and Wicker Park with its many options is a ~10 min walk (or 5 min bus/train ride) away.
I will conclude by saying that I feel very lucky to have chosen this place, and especially to have met Elisa. I will definitely be back and would recommend this place to anyone visiting Chicago.
