Even though Amy and Holly were out of town when my boyfriend and I stayed at their place, they made sure everything was taken care of. It was more than lovely and we felt right at home! I would recommend booking this very clean room to anyone!
Super Wohnung, zwei süße Hunde und eine sehr sichere Nachbarschaft. Mit der Bahn ist man in einer halben Stunde im Zentrum. Wohnung sieht aus wie auf den Bildern. Beide Gastgeber waren ebenfalls hilfsbereit und nett
It was really clean and cozy house. Especially the neighborhood was beautiful and we felt kind of safe compared to other places. Subway was close and convenient. But then the host was not that kind. Other than that it was good.
We had a wonderful stay at Amy's n holly's. The room was just perfect for I and my husband. Beautiful room n bathroom and the apartment itself so beautifully decorated, you will feel just like home!! The place was accessible easily by red line train which was just minutes walk from the stay which was really helpful as we toured the city by bus train and uber ;) thanks again Amy and Holly!!
This was our first airbnb experience and it was great! Apartament is big and pretty, our room was beautiful. Neighborhood is clean and safe. But, the most important is that Amy and Holly are amazing hosts, very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this apartment to all travelers.
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.
Our first Airbnb experience couldn't have gone better. Amy and Holly were excellent hosts and made us feel right at home, but also gave us space to do our own thing. They provided a comfortable bed, wireless internet, plenty of local brochures, and even suggested places for us to eat. We felt safe in their home and their neighborhood, able to come and go quietly whenever we needed to. The location was great, a couple of train stops from Wrigley Field, where the main event of our trip took place. They even have two super friendly dogs, and we love dogs. We would certainly stay again during our next trip to Chicago!

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.
