About this listing

My fiancé & I have a 3 bedroom condo and would love to host guests in one of our private rooms. Condo is located on the Hyde Park/Kenwood border and is renovated and near public transportation. We are 2 blocks from President Obama's house.

Response from Cristina & Corey:

Hi Jerry!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you found a great apartment. Just wanted to clarify that we actually are in the castle. The entrance that you use makes it feel like it is adjacent, but it is actually in fact in the castle. Guests that check out our other room get their own private entrance that takes them through the front part of the castle and into our unit. We wish there was some way all guests could use this entrance so everyone can experience walking into the front of the castle! Anywho, welcome to Chicago!

Response from Cristina & Corey:

Hi Usha! I just wanted to clarify a few things for you. Since we both work and are very busy, we can't always be around the house for people. You and I had communicated on several occasions so I wish you would have communicated this earlier and we would have gladly tried to meet you sooner if possible and our schedule opened up. Since you'd get back late, we'd be in bed since we had to work the next day. Us being in and out is stated in our profile and has never been an issue for others. Also, the stairs has never been an issue for anyone else. The climb isn't more significant than any other 2 standard 2 story building. As you know, the hallways are indeed open balconies but the door to get up to the hallways required a door code. Any one that you saw in the balcony was a resident so sorry if they startled you. Chicago is a very diverse city and we appreciate the diversity and are sorry if it made you uncomfortable. The apartment building isn't behind the castle, we are located in the back of it. Had you used our other door you'd have the opportunity to go into the front of the castle's entrance. Our guests that check out the other room use the entrance that goes through the castle and have their own private entrance. Since we have a dog who lives here, there is of course going to be some type of smell of his. Our house is just as much his as it is ours. As far as the bedding and towel, I'm sorry that was your experience -- I could have easily switched them out had you just mentioned it to me or sent me a text.

I am very surprised to hear about all of your concerns, as none of our other guests have had these concerns (and we've had lots of guests!!). I recall you wanting to check out sooner than your booked date and were unhappy with the fact that we have a moderate policy that didn't allow you to get a full refund for that day. I am thinking you being upset about not being able to cancel that last day may have contributed to your dissatisfaction with your stay with us prior to you staying. We're sorry to hear about your experience, but please know your experience is reflective of the experience that our other guests have had.
