When we arrived, Amy greeted us and helped us with our bags. She offered us a glass of water, gave us a little tour of the apartment, and provided us with the keys. We had some pleasant exchanges with both Amy and Holly but for the most part stayed to ourselves. Most of the information we needed like house rules and wifi info were provided on a sheet that was in the bedroom. We left for a concert almost as soon as we arrived and did not spend too much time in the room aside from sleeping. The room was very clean and just as pictured with an extra comforter. The bed was really comfortable! We took an uber to breakfast in the morning and decided to walk back--very cool neighborhood that felt safe. Overall, we were looking for a clean, comfy place to stay for one night that was relatively close to the concert venue, and it was perfect for us with a great price!
Amy and Holly were wonderful hosts! They were very accommodating despite our rushed schedule -- not to mention, their home is absolutely gorgeous! The location near Granville is also plenty convenient, close to many wonderful shows and shops. Thank you both for such an amazing stay!
Lovely, quiet, pristinely clean room and very comfy, invitingly appointed bed. I was just there overnight and left early for work, but felt very comfortable and slept soundly. Amy and Holly were friendly, communicated in timely way, and made me feel welcome! Parking no problem and great location. Highly recommend.
One of the best Airbnb properties have stayed at so far. The host was very welcoming and nice and made the check in process very easy. I would totally stay here again with out a thought next time I am in town. Recommended
I stayed with Amy and Holly for 3.5 weeks while I was working at Northwestern University. Their apartment is really well located (near to the 'L', supermarkets, and gym - I took membership for a month at Cheetah gym). The bedroom is clean and spacious. The apartment has everything you need: a nice bathroom, a very nice kitchen, and comfy living room. If you need a place to stay for more than a couple of days, this is a very good option! Amy and Holly are very welcoming and relaxed, and they let you do whatever it is that you have to do. Liked it!
The best host you'll ever have in Chicago. The room was clean and very well set up and the bed was extremely comfortable! In all honesty you will never have hosts as great as Amy and Holly. Extremely respectful and nice and if I ever have to book anything on AirBnB it will definitely be with Amy and Holly!
Amy & Holly, I throughly enjoyed your hospitality on my first airbnb experience. You never know when strangers open their extra room in their apartment; what to expect. From the first email and subsequent meeting, I was comfortable. Felt like we have known each other for a while. Thanks again & hope to see you both on the next windy city trip. Ray

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.
