    Charles and Kim are wonderful hosts. the room is very comfortable and big. the house is air conditioned, the bathroom is great.
    Safe and quiet neighborhood, near the University, great coffee shops, bakeries and noodles restaurant.

  • Enjoyed Kim and Charlie's hospitality, their helpful guidance and suggestions for places to eat at and see in the vicinity, and the quiet and privacy of our room. And their happy dog Riley was a joy to be around with, cheers!

  • I was not the guest, but rather friends from India, who reported their experience to me. They were absolutely delighted with the accommodations and the reception from the Coopers. The room (which I saw) is very nice and comfortable. Breakfast offered a generous range of choices. I will certainly try to book with the Coopers the next time we have guests whom we can't put up ourselves.

  • Only one word to describe our experience with Charles and Kim, EXCELLENT. The comfortable, large and clean room. Private bathrooms spotless. The neighborhood just steps from the beautiful area of ​​the University of Chicago. But best of all the kindness and sympathy of Kim and Charles. Thank you very much for everything.

  • Charles have a lovely quiet home in the University of Chicago precinct that is a short train ride from Millennium Park station. The room was large, the house is clean The private bathroom was clean and exactly as advertised. Charles and Kim are helpful and friendly. They were very generous and easy going so the stay was a breeze. I would thoroughly recommend staying at their place.

  • I loved my hosts,the room and the neighborhood. Near public transportation and the beautiful campus of the University of Chicago. The hosts were very helpful with information and even gave me a couple of rides to subway and bus! Couldn't have asked for a nicer experience as a first-time airbnb user. I will definitely use airbnb again!

  • Very friendly hosts, with good local info to help me plan my days and get the feel for good (and not so good) places to explore. On the edge of the University; nice bright room with a comfy bed and bedding.

  • Fantastic! I spent a month with Charlie and Kim, and they were like family by the time I had left. Very comfortable living space - a big, sunny room, nice bathroom, very clean and homey. Highly recommended to anyone who needs to stay in Hyde Park for an extended period of time.

  • It was an absolutely great place to stay. It is better than the majority of expensive hotels, I am not joking right now.

  • Thanks a lot Kim and Charlie. My stay with you was great. You are very kind, helpful and excellent hosts and your flat is a perfect and cosy place to stay. I could not have wished for a better place. Thanks and see you soon.

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.
