Wonderful hosts and accommodations. Comfortable bed, private bathroom, our own mini fridge and microwave. We love Chicago and would be happy to stay with Rebecca and Cameron again.
Cameron and Rebecca's place was easy to find. Rebecca met is to let us in the building. She is great! She is very welcoming and hospitable. The room was clean, had a great private bath, mini fridge, and a frisky kitty. Love is some Perky!! The location is steps from the beach and from many great restaurants. A big thanks to Cameron and Rebecca for having us!
We really enjoyed our stay at their apartment! The neighborhood and location were great - tons of close restaurants and shops nearby. My husband and I went to a small fun improv theatre close by. This place is a great change of pace from Downtown (but still easily accessible from the train). The room was clean and uniquely decorated. We loved their cat, Perk. No complaints, would definitely recommend.
We've had an excellent time at the apartment. Cameron and Rebecca were very nice, and Perky had been our best host! He played with us for most of the time we're in the apartment :) What an adorable cat!
The location of the apartment was great, near bus stops and train station so that its very easy to get around. Our room was just awesome! Cozy bed, clean bathroom, and all that we needed: fridge, microwave, air conditioner, tv, and lots of books! No complaints! Simply too good for the price. Thanks again to Cameron and Rebecca. Would definitely stay again next time we visit Chicago!
Everything was just as we expected: the room was lovely, everything was nice and clean, and Rebecca & Cameron were very helpful. Perky the cat was as cute as a cat can be. We also liked the neighborhood very much - it was conveniently located near the train station, next to the gorgeous Lakefront Trail, and within walking distance from cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores. All in all, we just loved Chicago and Rebecca & Cameron's airbnb!
The owners were extremely accommodating. They allowed an early check-in and late check-out (only because it didn't interfere with other reservations). The place is lovely. Some squeaky floors and needs some more detailed dusting, but clean and very comfortable overall. Their cat, Perky, is very cute and extremely friendly. We were just sad we weren't there to give him more company. This location is fantastic as far as mass transit is concerned. You can take the bus right in front of the building and the rail station is a short walk. This is a room with an en suite bathroom. All are well-appointed, along with literature. The kitchen and living are common spaces and there is another room to rent across the living room. We mainly stayed within our own room and it had all we needed (fridge, microwave, a/c, tv and bed:)). I would recommend this place to anyone. We couldn't have found better hosts.
I arrived very late my first night in Chicago after already rescheduling my previous meeting with the hosts. Despite this, Rebecca was quite cheerful when I arrived and provided a smooth check-in. She was also quick to respond later to texts when I had questions about the area and her apartment. The unit looked very similar to the photo and was in a very handy location for accessing the trails along Lake Shore Drive. There's lots of cool restaurants, pretty streets, and transit nearby too. Despite being in a urban area, it was actually pretty quiet, and I was able to keep the window open much of the night for a nice breeze. It's a great place to stay and I would not hesitate staying here again if I was in this area! Perky was fun to hangout with too!

About the Host, Cameron And Rebecca
We're a couple who just returned from a trip in Europe where we picked up a fondness for BnBs.
We're educated, polite, and easy going. We can't live without coffee, vacations, and our ridiculous cat, Perky.
As hosts, we're fairly hands-off. You'll have a private suite, but we're always glad to answer questions and give tips or advice about the city and local attractions. And we're usually happy to hear stories about exciting travels.
