This is a super convenient 2 bedroom apartment which is EXACTLY as it is described. It really is only about a block and a half to the Pink Line and the place is quite comfortable and has plenty of room. There are small restaurants and groceries close by. Dani and Dave are really friendly very helpful. I would certainly stay at their place again, if back in Chicago!! One of my travel companions left their medication there, and Dani graciously sent it to us! If you do travel with anyone disabled or older, the living room furniture is very low to the ground and not very easy for less-mobile people to sit on, but otherwise the place is very comfortable! (This element would not effect most people!) I would highly recommend this place, the hosts are incredible.
It was exactly what I expected. A cozy place to rest, a quiet neighborhood, close to trains and a bunch of buses. Dani was super sweet and answered all of my questions.
I will DEFINITELY be back!

My friend and I stayed at Dani and Dave's for a week.
They were attentive hosts, who made themselves available to us. We felt at home istantly in their cozy home. The neighborhood was quiet, and the neighboors were awesome and helpful.
The CTA system was near the apt, which was a plus. There was also a grocery store not far from the apt, another plus.
Thanks for having us and making part of our Chicago trip memorable!

Communication was fast and efficient- all messages were returned very promptly. Our GPS had trouble finding the location when we arrived (it didn't give us the option of STREET, but only gave us PLACE!) but luckily Dani's email to us had just enough details that we were able to find the apartment after circling for a bit !
The PROS- great location close to the orange line train & downtown, convenient grocery store close by, cheap laundry ($3/load), roomy apartment, nice selection of breakfast items, nicely equipped kitchen, selection of travel materials available (ie. transit map), good water pressure in the shower, close to a nice big park perfect for dog walking, free parking behind the building (only 1 night we had to wait for a spot to free up), good price for the amount of amenities offered
The CONS- a bit dusty/pet-hairy/allergenic- (take allergy pills, wear flip flops indoors, bring your own pillows), apartment downstairs contains a smoker + person who likes LOUD music on Friday nights (quite amazing how the smell can waft upstairs- probably not the place for you if you don't like the smell of smoke- it can be unavoidable), internet can be unreliable at times (streaming would stop for unknown reasons, browsing would slow to a crawl sometimes), 3rd floor location (we were fine, but if you have mobility issues, maybe not for you) no window coverings (don't walk around naked near the windows!), AC can be noisy (open the windows instead), no soap (we brought our own, not a problem), no closet space/hangers (but there is plenty of horizontal space on top of 2 dresser for luggage) No facial tissue/paper towels (we bought our own)
Overall, we have a good experience- our 2 week stay was pleasant although we realized later that most of the places we wanted to eat at were more to the north.
Thanks for a terrific weekend! Husband and son loved it.
The apartment is perfect. It has a good ubication and Dani & Dave are excellent hosts!!!
This was my first airbnb experience, and it was good, I would definitely stay at Dani and Dave's place again. The apartment is a stone's throw from the orange line train, and has a parking lot and easy street parking. The neighborhood was quiet and convenient with a grocery store within walking distance. Dani responded promptly and was very easy to communicate with.
We spent two weeks in Dani and Dave's home. It was a perfect location for easy travel into downtown. The train station is only a block away as well as a grocery store which was very handy.
There is a laundry in the building which was really convenient, very easy to use and not expensive.
We really appreciated Dani and Dave's hospitality and they were easy to communicate with throughout the whole process.
