  • Room was clean and warm with easy access to the Loyola campus. Difficult to get to the house from the airport on public transportation (1.5 hours) and a $40 dollar cab ride. Otherwise, a fine place to spend a night.

  • Denise was an absolutely fantastic host, picking us up from the station and even giving us a little tour of Forest Park so we felt right at home. Our room was lovely - clean, bright and with everything we needed (a fan, air con, lots of storage) and everyone we met was friendly. Our stay was incredible value and I couldn't recommend staying here enough.

  • Denise was about as close to a perfect host as possible. She was always available to help, with a welcoming smile on her face, and clearly did everything she could to make all of her guests feel at home. The house and coach house are both very comfortable and well stocked with breakfast foods, wifi, air conditioning, and other amenities that make them a place that any guest would be happy to come back to at the end of the day. The town is cosy, with plenty of stores, restaurants, and bars a short walk away. The train station into the loop is an easy 10 minute walk from the house and very convenient for commuters such as myself. I would wholeheartedly recommend staying with Denise to anyone!

  • I stayed 7 weeks at the homestay on Lathrop Avenue in Forest Park. Denise was fantastic at accommodating what I needed (e.g. a desk for study), and was extremely helpful in getting set up for my stay, including acquiring a transit card for the CTA system, and helping me to obtain a parking permit for the village of Forest Park. The house is about a 15-minute walk to the Forest Park station, which is the end of the line for the Blue Line trains--total transit time to the Loop downtown is about 1 hour. The house had everything I needed, and Denise continually made improvements to the house to ensure the comfort of her guests, including installing air conditioning units in the kitchens. My room also had an air conditioner, which was nice to have as it got warmer and more humid. In addition to 2 shared kitchens for the guests to use, there is a washing machine and clothes dryer in the basement, which I found convenient. The location of the house is close to some beautiful older homes, including the historic Frank Lloyd Wright homes in nearby Oak Park--about 1 mile away. Grocery stores are relatively close, and there is a Costco in nearby Melrose Park--about 10 minutes by car. Thanks D!

Since you’re thinking about staying with me, let me introduce myself! My name is Dee and I’ve been living in the Chicago Area all my life. And I live quite a happy life. Here’s a bit more about me. --My Hobbies-- I love the outdoors and I love to exercise. So daily you’ll find me riding the beautiful bike path near my house all over the area. If not biking, you can also often find me running my dogs on the local paths and parks. --Why I Do AirBnB-- I do AirBnB hosting because it enriches my life. When people come together from all over the US and the world, long lasting friendships form. Also Chicago is one of the most beautiful American cities, and I love showing people things about this city and it’s surrounding suburbs that they would not otherwise see. And because of this I really do my best to create a fun, and warm environment for every student that stays. --My Work-- Simply stated, I am an entrepreneur, and have been for 20+ years. During that time I have started and ran 4 businesses, including my current one, A+ master tutoring center. I am also an educator. I became interested in education over 7 years ago and became a teacher in American public schools until I decided to start my tutoring center. And I do love running my tutoring center because I have been able to help countless children learn essential skills that prepare them to take charge of their lives when they leave school.
