Located in the heart of Wicker Park (all of the best restaurants, shopping, and bars), this awesome clean hip apartment has everything you'd want for your stay in Chicago. It's got wifi, wide open space, the cutest kitchen ever, a back deck. Tons of street parking, and conveniently 2 blocks from the Damen Blue Line CTA station (a 24hr train line...you can stay out late).
This area of the city is called Wicker Park and its home to some of the most creative and interesting people, shops, restaurants and culture in Chicago. If you're a hipster, then this your place for sure!
We have nice fans to keep you cool this summer, and clean sheets to keep you nice and dry.
Between hosting on AirBnb and (website hidden), I've had hundreds of guests and I have a passion for meeting fun new people.
Plus, I know a thing or two about this city so I can help you with whatever you want to know!
If you are going to smoke, there is a nice porch where you can do so.
Otherwise, just be respectful of the neighbors!
The WORST experience ever! We arrived at 11.30 pm, we didn't have any contact with the owner when we arrived and also the day after. The house wasn't like the pictures, they are really fancy, but the house is dirty, old and stink!
When we arrived the heaters where at the maximum, we try to turn them down, but wasn't impossible, so we sleep with open windows!
The bed was really dirty with hair and blood stain!!!!!!!! I think that nobody washed it! We tought to change the apartment because it was really a nightmare but all the hotel were really expensive and I would lost my money, that's why we decide to continue to stay in this apartment for the rest of the week.
There was not Internet inside the home like the owner said, and to speak with him I needed to go out and write to him, because he didn't answer to the phone. The only contact with him was Airbnb!
The second day, we spent our first day in Chicago fixing all the problem we had in the apartment! A girl came to clean the apartment and to change the sheets, and a plumber to fix the smell of steam that come out of the old old old heaters. We lost our first day of holiday to do his work! Jeremy wants just to take your money, and he doesn't care about you, your holiday, your happiness. I didn't fix Internet the all week!!! We needed it to organize our tour day by day, that's way we spent 50$ to buy a card! Just an advice: CHOOSE ANOTHER FLAT!!!!!!!!
Vera was a terrible guest with unreasonable expectations. My place is a 2 bedroom apartment for less than $100 a night, and she acted like she had booked the Waldorf Astoria.
The sheets had a small stain, and when she complained, I bought brand new sheets.
Comcast had an internet outage. I called. They said it would be fixed. They did not say when. There was nothing more I could do.
The building has one boiler for the whole building. If the heat is too high, yes, you open the windows. And, yes, steam boilers do produce steam. I literally had to send a plumber to explain how a steam radiant heating system works.
Overall my experience in Jeremy's flat was good! When I arrived the flat wasn't enough clean to host new guests , but when I contacted Jeremy he put a lot of effort to fix everything. the flat is quite big, some of the furniture are different than in the photos, the bathroom and appliances are quite old, nonetheless if you don't need too much comfort it is a nice flat. What make the flat very good is the location! Wicker park is fantastic, a lot of green areas, nice and quite streets and amazing bar and restaurants!
Everything fine! Nice flat - Great neighbourhood - a good place to explore Chicago - with or also without family/kids! Thanxs Jeremy!
I stayed at Jeremy's place for a total of 10 weeks. He was an awesome host - it never took more than a day to get back to us. There were some things that needed to be fixed in the apartment but as soon as we brought it up to Jeremy, he resolved the issues ASAP.
I'd say that the pictures are not representative of the apartment - the furniture has definitely gone through some wear and tear but there's no better location for young professionals.
Overall, I had a great experience with Jeremy!
So Jeremy was really good about communication, check-in and check-out were a breeze, and the neighbourhood was AMAZING. After spending a few days in Chicago, there was no area I would have rather stayed in. That being said, the apartment was a little bit more no-frills than we were hoping. It was large and clean, but we had to fix the tub which wasn't draining (which Jeremy compensated us for), and not all the rooms had working lightbulbs when we arrived. And especially in the back room it was kinda noisy because the upstairs neighbours were hanging on the back porch at night, so it's probably not the kind of place I'd want to stay in long-term.
Great apartment in a beautiful, vibrant neighborhood. Location is just perfect: a quiet street with Wicker Park and Damen blue line station just around the corner, as well as a Divvy bicycle station. Many, many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Recommended!
The location is really great, in a very quiet area. The neighborhood is cool and full of really interesting shops. However, as told by other hosts, the place doesn't look at all like the photos: there was no coffee table and only two chairs for four people (as we complained, Jeremy bought a new table and four chairs). The beds are in small rooms without any space for anything else (no bedside table, not enough space to store personal belongings...). We stay four days without any lighting in the bathroom (despite the fact Jeremy told us he will arrange this). And we stayed the two last days all windows opened (and it was cold - snowy, the last day!) because of a strong smell of gas in the kitchen (again, Jeremy told us he will arrange that, but nothing was done). Windows seemed to have never been cleaned and most of the blinds were broken. There was not enough kitchenware at disposal and no kitchen table. So, a really good location, but a place which needs to be improved and cleaned.
