We think it's cool to invite others to share our space while we're away, but hope you'll leave it looking just the way it did when you found it.
Terrific spot. Clean, updated, and very comfortable. Off street parking was a great feature, as was the back deck/rooftop deck. Neighborhood is quite nice as well. Kristi was a great host. She was great with communication. I would most certainly recommend staying with them! Cheers, Kristi & Santi!
We had a lovely stay in this home! Our group of four was impressed with how comfortable and spacious their condo was, and the highlight for us was the cute patio at the back of the property! Kristi was a great host, as she was always quick to answer any questions we had about exploring Chicago. She was both friendly and professional, and was thorough in following up about our experience even after our trip. Their Lincoln Square neighbourhood is also a great place to do some walking/eating. I would recommend this spot to other travellers.
Wonderful hosts! The apartment was super clean and perfect for two couples. Kristi was great with communication and had a genuine interest in making sure we were comfortable. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We stayed in this condo for a week and really enjoyed the experience. The condo was as pictured on the listing so very clean and well kept. It was roomy, great bed and bathroom and a sunny patio with BBQ.
The area was easy to reach by public transit from Ohare, about 45 mins on train and bus that stopped right by the condo. We bought the weekly pass and accessed the Western stop on the Brown line about 10-15 mins walk or again you could take the bus on the corner to the train. It was about 45 minutes by train into the city which we visited most every day.
Drug store and grocery store right around the corner and pizza next door. We would have liked to have more choice of dining closer to the condo but again in 10-15 mins walk we were in Lincoln Square with lots of choices.
Very safe neighbourhood for walking which we did a lot.
Kristi was also quite prompt with her email and offered to help in any way she could.
We would definitely recommend a stay here.
What a gem! We found this apartment by coincidence since our travel dates were flexible. A quick reply from Kristi and further communication went just as smooth. She is very funny, polite and easygoing. After booking this place we received the information we needed at that moment. Detailed information followed just prior to our arrival which was ok for us. The apartment itself is very beautiful and clean. Very spacious with everything you can think of that you would need. There is a contactperson in case something would come up. You can park your car in the back behind Kristi and Santi's car. The newly opened Tony's Fresh Market (just around the corner) is fantastic, Jimmy's NY Pizza on the corner as delicious and Shelly's Freeze is more than okay. Although a bit far from downtown if you want to take the bus (which stops right in front of the entrance) or the L, this place is highly recommended. Just drive your car to one of the funky neighbourhoods Chicago has to offer and use your feet. Andersonville is close by with the delicious sandwiches prepared by Jerry. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for having us!
This Modern & Cozy Lincoln Square Condo was absolutely amazing! The off-street parking was a great feature as well as the roof-top deck. We had plenty of space available. The condo is a short walk to the Western stop on the Brown line, and Winnemac Park. The space was amazingly decorated, and we felt like we never left home.
Kristi was great with communicating directions before arrival, and had great notes on the space. We had a great time. We highly recommend staying here.
We stayed at Kristi and Santi's while in Chicago for four days in August for a family wedding. The condo is spectacular in every way--comfortable, pristine and beautiful. Since we stayed four days we really appreciated having a fabulous kitchen to cook in and an open floor plan for family time. The master bedroom and bathroom are luxurious and spacious and resemble a five-star resort hotel!!! The second bedroom and bath are comfortable and the perfect set-up for our grown son and his partner who were staying with us in the condo. The neighborhood is safe, convenient and quiet -- I walked a couple of miles every morning down adjacent streets with sweet homes and lovely gardens all along the way--and lots of fabulous dogs to see on walks in the nearby park (less than a 1/2 mile away). Also, restaurants and coffee shops are a short walk away--which made afternoons and evenings easy and relaxing. Oh and I have to mention that communication with Kristi was 100% excellent from our first email enquiry through post check-out. All in all, we were exceptionally happy with every aspect of our stay--it just could not have been better.
Here are some more details:
Provided great information about Chicago and local eateries
Lovely deck area for eating, cooking or just gathering
Walgreens and a great grocery store in very close proximity!
I said quiet--but, let me emphasize again--very quiet!
We are a young, professional couple. Santi is from Spain, I'm from Wisconsin. We met in Spain where we lived together for 3 years before moving to Chicago 7 years ago.
We love traveling, decorating, and design and have a non-stop social calander. Our hobbies include volleyball, latin dancing, and entertaining.
We love having people over for get-togethers and dinners to share our space, but keeping our home and belongings clean and in good shape is very important to us, therefore we would be mindful of doing the same in someone else's space.
