Amy & Holly's place was awesome! Such a cute neighborhood and an incredibly beautiful place. The decor & house/patio plants were perfect. Both Amy and Holly gave great recommendations for Chicago food & activities. We weren't there for long, so it was nice to know what to focus on in the time we had. If ever in Chicago again, we'll be back! PS, super comfy sheets & very clean room.
Had a great one night stay here. The apartment was lovely and met all of our needs. The hosts were very welcoming and we wish we could have stayed longer!!
Super chill place to stay. Very friendly hosts and great safe location! There was also plenty of parking. :) Room was also very comfortable, will definitely stay again when need arises. ;)
Our hosts were wonderful and the apartment and bedroom were exactly as advertised. A great stay! Convenient and comfortable!
I was not there for long, but that was because I had to explore the great city of Chicago. When I arrived at 8:30pm, they were both very welcoming. I enjoyed the stay because they were both very nice and have a very quaint place. It is in a good neighborhood, and they take care of there residence. Amy and Holly are great people and were very hospitable. I would recommend to anyone who wants to visit Chicago to stay with Amy and Holly. Thank you for the welcome into your beautiful home.

About the Host, Amy & Holly
My partner and I moved from St. Louis to Chicago 8 years ago. I work in the HR consulting field and help with an annual circus festival. 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.
