Comfy bed, nice neighborhood, great location, lots of fun places nearby! Would recommend John's bnb to everyone if you are visiting Chicago!!!!!
John was incredibly accommodating to my 4 friends and me. We had the whole 3rd floor with a beautiful bathroom and a mini fridge. One of my friends joined year the air bnb from Germany and when the airline delivered her bag to the house after they lost it, John was incredibly helpful. We were out and about and I called John and he took the suitcase inside from the delivery service and brought it all the way to the 3rd floor. That eased our anxiety about the lost suitcase and helped us enjoy our stay! The beach is within walking distance and we were SO close to the redline. This air bnb was perfect for our getaway with friends!
A beautiful house with welcoming hosts.
I had so little time to spend in the house because I had planned activities for my entire trip. Bozena and John were very friendly and my dog was welcomed. Their dog, Bailey, is a sweet little guy who is a little territorial but with my private room on the third floor, I never had to worry about him.
It was a beautiful room on the top floor of a beautifully restored house full of natural light and wood. There was only one other room and a bathroom up there (it would be perfect for a small family) and the other room was currently unoccupied, so I had plenty of privacy. The bathroom is a beautiful remodel and I wish I could have spent more time just relaxing in the tub.
Free fi-wi and parking and even Netflix (although I never had a chance to use it) make it a great place to retreat to after a day of enjoying the city. It is walking distance from a Starbucks that looks out on the famous Green Mill and is just a short drive from the Montrose Dog Beach. It's close to the el and many bus routes (like most things in Chicago) but I wouldn't feel comfortable exploring that particular neighborhood in the middle of the night on foot. It's a wonderful, transitioning Chicago neighborhood with a lot to offer. And the information packet the Garveys provide will tell you all about nearby attractions and how to get around in Chicago.
Bozena greeted me with cake and a huge smile. Next time I visit, I will plan on spending a little time with the Garveys. I can see why they are super hosts.
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.

About the Host, Jb
We are easy going, relaxed, have a sense of humor and are helpful in many ways to all our guests. However, we are not interested in hosting guests who never leave the house and have no intention of going out to see the sights but just plan to stay "at home".
