  • Amy and Holly were very accommodating hosts and helped make our short stay in Chicago a success. Thanks again!

  • The room is very neat and clean, in a good neighborhood. Amy & Holly are very nice and happy to give advice on places to eat, things to do, and other ideas for Chicago. The location is great for a hub into town that gives access to a local neighborhood while not being in the middle of skyscrapers, plus Cid the dog is incredibly sweet.

    This was my first time staying at an Air BnB listing and I was very pleased.

  • I loved Amy and Holly's place!!! Very gracious and accommodating host and did I mention their place is phenomenal! I would definitely stay again. Amy was so helpful to me. Both ladies kept open communication and ensured that I was ok. They truly made me feel welcomed in their home!

  • Amy and Holly were excellent hosts. The room was fine and as described on the listing. The neighborhood is residential with tree-lined streets and many brownstone apartment buildings, with shopping areas, cafes, and bars, bus and transit stops nearby.

  • The place is located a few blocks away from red line subway tho it takes awhile to get to downtown Chicago. The room is clean and neat. Amy and Holly are nice. I couldn't ask for more. :-)

  • 7 minutes walk to the redline. Three-floor stairs might be challenging but no big problem. Clean room with a balcony. Fast and reliable wifi. Cute and lovely dog. Fresh water available in the refrigerator. Hosts are helpful. Holly was very nice to print my train ticket.

  • Amy and Holly took fantastic care of my mother when she was in town for my wedding and stayed with them. They were very gracious about some flubbed communication on my end, and patient, kind, and helpful to my mother, who slept wonderfully there and loved her room.

    The apartment is an easy jaunt from the train and a truly excellent value. Will definitely book with these two again the next time we have guests in town!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Amy and Holly's apartment. The listing was exactly what we expected. It was the perfect place to stay--both a great base for exploring Chicago and felt very comfortable and home-like when relaxing. It was easy to come and go as we liked. The neighborhood is wonderful with easy access to the El for public transportation to the rest of the city. We highly recommend staying with Amy and Holly. We should also note that they plan to shortly offer an airbnb in a different unit of the same building, which would make for an excellent choice.

  • Amy and Holly were very nice. Their apartment was clean and the location is perfect. Since I am from Texas, windy city was kind of freezing for me. But we were lucky that our host provide us a great heater during out stay. Thank you Amy and Holly.

My partner and I moved from St. Louis to Chicago 6 years ago. I work in entertainment and events and Amy works in publishing. We love entertaining, cook often and spend lots of time in nearby Andersonville. We love the arts, great food and can definitely recommend a variety of great things to do in Chicago.
