The host was very welcoming, flexible and helpful throughout this process as I changed things a couple of times on them. This was my first airbnb experience and I definitely plan to use it again. The pictures do not do the house justice! It was beautiful and very clean with gorgeous modern bathrooms. All in all it was a great weekend!
My group of 4 stayed for 2 nights and everything worked out perfectly. We had tickets to the Aragon and it was within sight from the house! We had a place to park my car and there were plenty of places within walking or taxi distance.
We all recommend staying with John and Bozena to future guests and would have no problem staying with them again in the future. They were both very polite and left us to ourselves.
My friends and I, 14 in total, decide to spend Thanksgiving in Chicago and we rent this whole house. The hosts are extremely kind and patient. The neighborhood is safe and easily accessible to many great restaurants. Transportation is convenient as well. We had a really good time in Chicago and we definitely appreciate the hosts and the house.
I have been staying many times at John's and Bozena's. It's almost like my home in Chicago. I love staying there, its easy, in a convenient location, beautiful and very clean.
Our stay at John and Bozena's house was excellent. We found the house and bed linen clean. The Garveys were of all help, very kind and were around every time we needed. When something seemed to be broken or not working properly, John had it fixed right away. The beautiful and spacious house accommodated our family and our friends' very comfortably. Hadn't it been raining we'd have some barbecue done in the backyard! The convenience of being next to the metro line helped quite well, despite it's being not so close to downtown. We loved being two blocks away from The Green Mill, which is one of the best Jazz house in town. In our last day, John and Bozena were so kind to take us to a breakfast place where very much locals go. We really enjoyed being there. There are two things we'd like to point out, however. We didn't know the hosts would be staying with us, even though we learned that wouldn't be a problem whatsoever. Another thing is, we didn't know the house had a dog and cats. It happened one of us is allergic to fur. It didn't turned out to be a problem, though. We could get away with that. We really recommend staying at John and Bozena's. They are lovely, helpful and we certainly plan to come back with more friends. We had a great time there. Thanks John and Bozena.
The website says we have one dog and one cat. Claudia rented 3 rooms in a 6 bedroom house. The reason our being there was not a problem is when we sense the guest wants privacy we give it to them. I am not sure where the idea that they rented the whole house came from. We do rent the whole house at about 3x the cost of 3 bedrooms. We were happy to host our Brazilian friends from San Paulo!
The house was fantastic and the neighbourhood was nice. John was very welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. I would definitely go back to his house when visiting Chicago.
John and Bozena were great hosts! Extremely welcoming and attentive. They were very helpful. It was like staying in a hotel but more comfortable. The area surrounding the complex was really nice, safe and very interesting with a lot of bars and cafés. We had a great time and would stay there again. Chicago is a very nice city!
