we are on the campus of University of Chicago. 1/2 mile from Museum of Science and Industry, 1 mile from President Obama's Chicago home - 6 miles south of downtown and 1/2 mile from Lake Michigan. Three forms of public transportation are close, including bus which stops outside our door. Train downtown is a 12 minute ride. We are on the top (3rd floor)of our building.
It was great to stay so close to the University. The room is homey and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay here and Charlie and Kim were extremely gracious and helpful.
Charlie & Kim are fantastic hosts! Very helpful and accommodating!
I could not speak more highly of my stay with them. Cozy room, private bath, cutest puppy and perfect location!
Perhaps I'll be back soon! ;)
I arrived at Charles' easily on public transportation, following his excellent directions. He had everything organized with information about transit options around Chicago available. Despite the distance, I would stay there again because it was a comfortable clean room and I had a bathroom to myself.
Thank you Charles and Kim, It was a pleasure to stay with you. It is a perfect location if you need to work at the University and the city center is also easy accesable by train.
I can recommend everyone to stay with these two generous host.
Charles and Kim are perfect hosts. Communication prior to arrival was prompt and easy. Directions given to the apartment was accurate. Charles accommodated my last minute request of arriving one day earlier and leaving one day later. The room was clean, cosy and warm on the coldest week of the year in Chicago. Breakfast was provided everyday. It was a perfect stay with Charles and Kim. I would definitely stay with them the next time I am visiting the University of Chicago.
It was a great experience staying with Charlie and Kim. They are very thoughtful and easygoing people. I stayed for a week to travel around the wind city and their place is near the train which connects to most the attractions downtown. The room is big and clean. I had good sleep every night :) I would highly recommend their place!
У Charles я прожила 4 дня, и с полной уверенностью могу всем рекомендовать пожитьу них. Он и его жена были очень добры и помогали мне. Очень хорошее расположение квартиры, тихий район, рядом автобусная остановка. Будете снимать комнату у Charles, не пожалеете. Все было классно!
my wife is home during the day - we have a dog but it will not have access to your room and is not left alone (though it is friendly and well-behaved). We can offer insights and suggestions based on living here for decades and living in several neighborhoods. We have wireless internet access.
