Perfect location, inviting decor, great hosts! Would stay here again anytime.
The apartment is great! It's located in one of the most interesting neighborhoods in the city, with many restaurants that are in walking distance. Location is also convenient in terms of transportation, as there are various metro stops nearby. Sarah and Jeff left snacks for us when we arrived (much appreciated!) and even had Netflix on their TV.... so we binged watched House of Cards. Great place and great hosts. Highly recommended!
After a trek in the cold and snow, I was so thankful that Sarah and Jeff had left the heater on in the apartment! A cute handwritten note, fresh towels and sheets, and snacks made me feel at home so far away from Florida. The apartment was exactly what I needed for a week long internship: privacy, ample space, bright natural lighting, and a comfortable bed. The convenience of having cafes and restaurants so nearby was fantastic, and it was only 4 minutes away from my clinic sight! I would would gladly stay here again. Although I didn't get to meet Sarah and Jeff, they were good at communicating and happy to help if any need arose.
My mom and I had a lovely experience staying at Sarah and Jeff's! Met Sarah briefly upon our arrival and from then on the place was ours. It was nice to know they were often upstairs in case we needed anything.
There's no kitchen, like the ad says, but that was fine with us. They provided a kettle, there was a mini fridge and microwave, and plenty of tea and little snacks.
We were mostly exploring, but we loved the Map Room around the corner (for beers over coffee!) and the neighborhood is lovely. Oh and their book collection is unreal- I would almost go back just to sample their library. Thanks for a great stay, guys =)
Sarah and Jeff were very welcoming. They responded to inquiries promptly, left great suggestions for what to do in the area, and were very friendly. We got in at night so we didn't see them when we checked in, but they left clear instructions for how to get into the apartment and a cute note greeting us when we arrived - it was a great visit!
Sarah was very prompt and clear in emails. The place was perfect. Very Private and although a basement apartment it was very quiet. The bedroom was cozy and warm. We were happy.
Staying with Sarah and Jeff was by far the best Airbnb experience I've had so far. They were nothing but helpful - even to the point that they messaged me on our day of departure and told us that we could stay past out check-out time if we needed to because of a snowstorm in the city. The place was cosy and just what we wanted with a perfect location as it says on the listing.
Very very happy customers, couldn't recommend more! We will definitely be staying again when we come back to Chicago!
Hi there! I'm Sarah. My husband, Jeff, and I live in Chicago, in a solid brick cottage that was built in 1894. Jeff and I met when I was a student at Ohio State and he had just finished a degree at the University of Michigan. If you follow Big 10 football, you'll understand that our union initially upset many friends and family members. ; )
After traveling around the midwest for a while, we settled in Chicago, which we love. We have a wonderful network of family and friends. In the winter, we like to visit conservatories and eat lots of Pho, and in the summer we like to ride our bikes around and enjoy Chicago's many outdoor music festivals.
A lot of our free time recently has been spent renovating our home. We've rebuilt our porch, totally remodeled the kitchen, and renovated a guest suite in the garden level for visitors. We love being able to host friends and family and share our enthusiasm for the "city of big shoulders."
