  • Our request to stay was answered almost immediately and plans fell into place quickly. Karen and Brett were prompt with directions and details. The place is perfect: one bedroom, large bath, and sitting room with amenities. Access and parking couldn't have been easier. We were within walking range of food, bars, and entertainment. We will definitely be looking to stay here again. Highly recommended. Wish all airbnb's were this easy and cozy.

  • This is a great place in the heart of Old Town on a quiet street. It is well appointed and has everything you need for a short stay. The apartment is near restaurants, bars, Old Town attractions and is within a few minutes of virtually all that Chicago has to offer. I definitely recommend this place.

  • My stay at Brett and Karen's was perfect! It was my first air bnb experience and it went really smoothly. Brett and Karen were accommodating hosts by checking in to make sure I arrived okay and offering any help I might need during my stay.

    The apartment was in tip top shape. The bed was super comfy. They had complimentary water in the fridge for me, which was nice after being out walking. The shower had great water pressure. It's located in a great neighborhood and close to lots of things to see and do. I can't even think of any negatives.

    I'll definitely be staying again and recommending this apartment to anyone who visits Chicago! Thanks Brett and Karen!

  • Thanks to Brett and Karen for letting us stay in their extremely beautiful and cozy apartment up in Chicago.

    Location-wise this place was fantastic, and allowed for extremely easy access to anywhere you want to go in Chicago. The neighborhood itself was tree-lined, beautiful, and quiet. Parking was never a problem along the street despite it being Chicago, and our hosts left a lovely guide on the nearby cafes, restaurants, and bars to check out.

    The apartment itself was extremely warm and cozy. Despite not having a kitchen, the amenities were abundant, including a Keurig brewing system for coffee/tea and a fridge. The apartment also included a lovely balcony/patio area, a huge TV, and all other creature comforts you could possibly need.

    Would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for a nice, safe, and lovely place to stay while exploring Chicago.

  • Great location, extremely clean, very comfortable and easy to catch a cab right around the corner. Brett and Karen were great hosts and we will not hesitate to book again the next time we are back in Chicago.

  • As someone who travels to Chicago regularly on business and have stayed in many, many hotels there. This place was in an exceptional neighborhood, an absolute value even for winter. Their place is immaculate, and above comparison to many five star hotels. Keep this place on your radar to know in advance you won't be disappointed.

  • We truly enjoyed our stay. This is a very clean, comfortable and well-maintained property. We appreciated the neat, attractive decor. Amenities included two sinks in the bathroom, a nice shower, living room with great books, desk, internet, parking passes included, refrigerator, coffee maker and plenty of storage space. It was nice to have bars, restaurants and other attractions just a short walking distance away. The neighborhood is also great for taking walks and looking at the local architecture. The hosts, Karen and Brett, are attentive, helpful and friendly folks.

    February 2014
  • Apartment was gorgeous. Location was great. Karen and Brett were super accommodating and friendly, and they made the whole process very seamless. I would definitely return next time I'm in Chicago.

    Thank you guys for a very pleasant stay.
