Iris is a sweet person who gives full attention to making sure that you feel settled I tot he space. Very considerate and accommodating. The space suited my need perfectly.
Iris is a nice host. she kindly allocated me into another room as I needed to extend my stay.
You will not find a private room for 2 cheaper than $35 a night anywhere in Chicago. Even single beds in a hostel dorm room for 8 people start at about $40 per person. Iris was flexible with our last minute booking. Due to heavy booking there were two rooms available in two different locations, one with a divider only which wasn't private enough for us. Instead, we stayed at a 3 bedroom place on Halsted street near Chinatown in a private room with one other guest in the house. Iris helped us find free parking nearby. The metro station is literally across the street so getting downtown took about 10 minutes. The internet hadn't been set up yet and the gas was broken so there was no hot water or a stove to cook on during our stay. Iris was working on getting both the internet and gas working so I'm sure they would be fine now. She gave us a refund of $2 per night as compensation for the gas being broken. Although we booked for 4 nights, we stayed elsewhere in Chicago on the 4th night. This price is budget, expect budget accommodation - good for a short stay on the cheap and close to the city.
Hello. Iris is a very responsible and honest landlord. She is always ready to quickly help with any questions. I sincerely advise everyone to contact Iris if you need to rent an apartment or room in Chicago. Thanks a lot!

I came originally from Hong Kong as a student. I work together with Linda, as seen in the picture, for the temporary rental business.
I love hosting, being hospitable to strangers. It helps me to know people from all over the world.
I believe in the teaching of the Bible. The foremost commandment is to love the Lord, your God with all your heart, all your might and all your soul, and similar to it is to love your neighbor as yourself.
By receiving strangers into my house, in fact, is to fulfill one of the biblical principles, being hospitable. I love my guests. Most of them are clean and courtesy. It also teaches and matures how to deal with difficult people.
I love my business and my guests.
