Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It was great! A convenient location a little outside the city center, apartment was simple but clean and lots of nice touches like leaving coffee and snacks for us. Would definitely stay again.

  • Beautiful city, especially Millennium Park. We enjoyed our stay. Close to downtown, which was convenient. Good food within a 5-10 minute ride.

    The only disappointment was that the parking, we searched for a place that included parking and it wasn't available. We did however parked on the street.

    Thank you Dani and Dave.

  • We did not get a chance to meet Dani or Dave but the apartment was great! We had a fun time visiting Chicago. The juice, coffee, and snacks were a great touch! It was easy to find a parking spot on the street and the metro station was very close.

    May 2014
  • Clean spacious rooms, convenience of having a washer and dryer to use, and proximity to public transportation make (email hidden) to stay.

    Thanks Dani and Dave!

  • Dani and Dave were really friendly and always ready to help.
    The apartment looks like on the photos, enough space for 3-4 persons. The neighbors were quiet, close to trains.

  • We had a great time staying at this house! It is very comfortable, next to the train station, the neighborhood was ok, and Dani & Dave were excellent hosts. They were allways available to answer our questions. We had a little problem with the oven when we arrived, but we informed Dani & Dave about it, and they came inmediately to fix it. I strongly recommend this place!

  • The photos tell the whole story: this is like staying in your favorite, eccentric uncle and aunts home, that is super convenient to the subway and just feels like home.

  • This apartment was perfect for us! My husband, myself, our 9 month old and two friends from Milwaukee. We slept comfortably. The neighbors were quiet, there were no disturbances. It is a three minute walk to the pink line train. There is a little grocery right on the corner and even a walgreens about a half a mile away. There is also a little Mexican restaurant on the corner with the best 99 cent chicken tacos, too. Everything in the apartment worked great. The shower was nice, good pressure. Dani was kind enough to let us check in early since we arrived much earlier than expected. We spent a lot of time checking out all of the artwork decorating the walls. The art alone made this place worth it. Very cool! Next time we're in Chicago, we will definitely book again.

  • Really nice hosts, I didn't have the opportunity to meet them in person, but the house was really clean, they left us cookies, yogurts and juice for breakfast, and their appartment is close to the CTA and in a quiet neighborhood. I recommend this appartment if you are 2-3 people going for a couple of days to Chicago.

  • 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 (email hidden) 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.
