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
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
I am very happy with my stay at Amy and Holly house . Amy thank you very much for your availability and your kindness . I recommend this place .
Fast response with communication. Beautiful location and room. Very accommodating and friendly. I would definite come back here again. Nothing but a great time.
The hosts were very accommodating and welcoming. The neighborhood was great, extremely close to the Loyola University and seated in the heart of Lincoln Park, plenty of awesome restaurants, cafes and shops within a short walk. The room was great, plenty of space, great decorations, and extremely clean and tidy.

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.
