Amy and Holly were welcoming and helpful. The accommodation was as advertised and exactly what we needed - somewhere to act as a base. The neighborhood was lovely and we'd definitely be back if we make it to Chicago again. Thanks for a great stay.
Amy&Holly's apartment was easy to find and a total charmer. It is also save, while we walked back at 2am from Granville train station. The apartment itself is very inviting and warm. Their dog was a cutie.
Everything was as we expected- neat, tidy and clean.
This time it was a short trip, but I know where to stay on my next trip to the Windy City.
There are probably a big array of good and bad air bnb places to stay, however they are def one of the better ones! They live in a cute apartment however it feels more like a house. It was very clean and welcoming. A very good value for the price. We unfortunately arrived late and had to leave early the next morning so didn't have much of an opportunity to get to chat. However they did give us options for local restaurants and how to get there. They are very organized and even had a desk that included brochures and extra toiletries. Their place is located in what seemed like a very safe neighborhood and was a short walk to the cta station. Even had free street parking outside their place. Was our first experience in Chicago. Would def stay here again!
Amy and Holly's place was great. They have everything well set up for guests (wifi password, takeout menus, towels, etc ready on hand when you arrive). It's an incredibly comfortable room and bed in the room, and the apartment is in a neighborhood that seemed safe, residential and walkable. Highly recommend staying here!
We had a great time staying with Amy and Holly. Everything needed was available. Everything was clean, and their dog was amazingly sweet. The location was just about perfect as well.
Our stay was great. It was exactly what we were looking for. We stayed one night in the middle of the week so we didn't really see the hosts because they were working and we were busy too, but Amy was really nice, helpful and relaxed when we checked in. The neighbourhood is cute, and quiet; it's a little far from downtown Chicago if that's what you're looking for but we wanted something a little quieter. The pictures looked fancier and tidier than what it actually was but it was still a very nice and spacious apartment with big windows and lots of natural light - and for the price of $60 I can't complain. I definitely recommend staying with Amy and Holly!

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.
