Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time at John and Bozena's place! John was the perfect host, gave us good tips about where to dine and what to do. Their place is wonderful and we slept like little piglets in their beds. Too bad we weren't staying longer.
    Highly recommended!

    April 2014
  • Another great stay! Thank you John & Bozena. Everything was excellent. This is a great place to stay for shows at the Riviera or Aragon, lots of fun places within walking distance, too. Ate dinner at Agami (thank you John for the recommendation!) and it was really good and fun.
    It was my second stay here...and I will definitely be back!

    March 2014
  • They were great host!!! We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you again for making us feel welcomed & at home.

    February 2014
  • Great people, great house, great dog, amazing location, easy parking, the steam shower was very helpful (we travel for a living and every bit of detox helps)....we would stay here again.

    February 2014
  • Even though we were only at the house for getting ready and sleeping it was very comfortable with more than plenty of room!

    January 2014
  • John and Bozena are very kind. The location is great, and everything was as we expected. I definitely recommend this place.

    November 2013
  • John and Bozena were very helpful, discrete and courteous. We enjoyed our stay with them very much. Their house is extremely beautiful.

    October 2013
  • Not many people would welcome a party of 10 from overseas that included 8 teenage boys, but John and Bozena did just that. On arrival, Bozena took us in, showed us around and arranged some put-up beds. Then she got us the number for the pizza delivery service and that satisfied the teenagers. After a good night and comfortable sleep, John welcomed us in the morning and then made arrangements for us all to have breakfast at a great local diner - Tweet. Further, even though we only stayed one night we were able to leave our bags at the house while we explored the city. All in all it was a great first night for our trip. Finally, the house is ideally situated near a rail station and the rail trip into the city takes in the iconic Wrigley Field. Result - 10 very satisfied customers.

    October 2013
  • We had a great time at John and Bozena's house. The accomodations were excellent and John even offered his almond butter and toast to me for me for breakfast. Only a two minute walk from the L but was every quiet and you could not hear the train at all.

    October 2013
  • We were having a bachelor party weekend, and stayed at John and Bozena's place for Labor Day Weekend. There were 9 of us, and the place's was more than adequate to accommodate our needs. The house is conveniently located next to the subway, and Wrigley Field is only a couple stops away. The house is extremely comfortable and clean, and John and Bozena were very gracious and knowledgeable hosts. I recommend anyone coming to Chicago to consider staying with them!
