Interaction with Guests
We work from home and love some distraction from work. :) Both of us enjoy sharing our time with our guests. Join us for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening.
We love this neighborhood and hope you will too!
Andersonville is now considered one of Chicago’s “hot” neighborhoods. It also enjoys nationwide renown for its unique commercial district, comprised almost entirely of locally owned, independent businesses. It demonstrates what Andersonville locals have known for a long time: that the locally owned businesses are a crucial part of Andersonville’s vitality and quality of life, returning far more to the community in economic benefits and neighborhood involvement than would non-local businesses. Communities everywhere now look to emulate Andersonville as a model of a thriving urban neighborhood. Visit Andersonville(.)org for more details.

Amy and I stayed with Mat and Randy while we were in town to visit family. Mat and Randy have lovingly renovated their home into a highly tasteful and welcoming space. The guest bedroom was spacious, private and had some great added features including an in-room mini fridge. Each morning we were treated to delicious quality coffee and local pastry which is still even a little rare in the AirBnB world. Our favourite parts were the exposed beams, plump and friendly cats and abundance of Charlie Harper art (one of my personal favorite illustrators) and lastly the wonderful morning conversations with Mat and Randy. Our only regret was not being there in warmer days to enjoy the babbling water feature up close in their garden retreat out back.
The house is lovely, the neighborhood is great and Mat and Randy are fun, charming and warm. Andersonville has some really cute shops, great restaurants and bars. It is a very well-kept area - you can tell the owners take pride in their businesses. Can't wait until we can come and visit again!
My visit to Chicago and Andersonville could not have been better, thanks to my gracious hosts. Mat greeted me warmly and showed me around the house, which is spectacular. I met Randy the next morning over coffee. My hosts were helpful and kind and their home is lovely. Highly recommend!
We had a wonderful stay with Matt and Randy at their home in the hot Andersonville neighborhood. The room and house are both fantastic. The guys have been upgrading the home throughout and it's a showpiece. Our bed was super comfy and room is nicely appointed. This was one our favorite AirBnb stays of all time - highly recommended!
could it have been better? no.
will I come back ? yes indeed.
Thank you guys for an amazing stay in Chicago
My stay at Mat and Randy's place was just perfect. They have a really nice house in such a great part of Chicago! I loved Andersonville. It has a lot of nice restaurants and shops and just a really good vibe in general.
The room itself is great! Nicely decorated, cozy and really comfortabel with a good bed! The bathroom is very clean and has a great shower.
But the best part of my stay were definitely Mat and Randy. They really know how to host and make sure you have a really pleasant and comfortable stay. They are friendly, fun, great to talk too and just really sweet!
Thank you both so much for making my stay in Chicago so great, I loved it. See you in Amsterdam, apple pie and beer!;)
Randy was excellent host, he sent me instructions how arrived to his place and all. The room and the house was even better than described. The coffee and tea in the morning was awesome, and the notes, a very nice detail. It is highly recommended, when I come back ti chicago, I'll definitely stay here again, if it's available.

We love to travel on a budget, no big hotels for us. We do our best to experience our trips like locals. We love the outdoors, hiking, camping, and having visitors. You will find us most times digging in the yard or enjoying a cold beer(s) with friends.
Mat is self employed and works from home. Randy has been a Kindergarten teacher in public schools for 20 years.
Airbnb brings travel to us and we LOVE IT!
