Everything was great, Ray and Lucero are great hosts, the apartament is big, they are very kind and great for having a beer and to have a good conversation! I definitely recomend for everybody to stand there! Also very clean place!!
I stayed with Lucero and Ray for one night while in town for a conference at UIC. The experience was great. They were extremely accommodating - met me at the apartment in the middle of the afternoon when I arrived, and offered me delicious food while I was home in the afternoon. They also offered breakfast and coffee in the morning. While I declined (I had to get to campus), the food looked great. The apartment was clean and quiet, and it was nice to have my own bathroom as well. Though I didn't have the chance to chat with them much given my schedule, they seemed like a lovely couple, and I would definitely stay with them again!
Ray and Lucero are incredibly down-to-earth people and made my first airbnb experience very much enjoyable. They were even nice to enough to pick me up from the train station and drive me to my next destination the morning after! Amazing people, I can definitely vouch for these two and I know where I'll be staying when I come back to Chicago in the future.
Perfect couple and perfect hosts.
The apartment is really nice and in great location. Pharmacy, restaurants and csfe nearby and also in prime spot public transportation to and from airport. My room was very nice and clean. Ray and Lucero are awesome. I really enjoyed my stay here.
Lucero and Ray are fantastic hosts--accommodating, generous, funny, and kind! Our plane to O'Hare landed over an hour late, so we didn't arrive to the UIC train station until after 11:00 PM. Nevertheless, Lucero and Ray graciously offered to pick us up from the stop so that we wouldn't have to walk to their place with our luggage in tow. And, they even took us to a delicious late-night taco spot so that we wouldn't have to go to bed hungry. Ray makes his own homemade wine, and we were very fortunate to enjoy copious amounts of it as we talked with our hosts late into the evening. The wine and conversation were equally delicious!
If you are visiting Chicago on business at the University of Illinois, Chicago, you are in luck! Lucero's and Ray's condo is located a very short, pleasant walk down the road from the UIC campus where we were attending a three-day conference. It was such a pleasure to be able to get to where we needed to be on foot.
If you are in Chicago for pleasure, you're also in the right place. Lucero was born and raised in Chicago, and Ray shares an equal love of the city, so the two of them are full of information and recommendations to help you fulfill your desires to explore the city's food, music, art, nightlife, and even routes for running! Their condo is conveniently located near train and bus routes near the downtown "loop," so getting around is easy and affordable.
The private room and bathroom are beautiful and clean, the bed is comfortable, and the company is the best sort. Perla, their tiny Pomeranian-Chihuahua, is the cutest little baby; she is quiet and very affectionate, and she really makes you feel at-home.
Without any reservation, and with the utmost enthusiasm, we recommend staying with Lucero and Ray. We certainly look forward to doing so in the future!
I stayed only one night for my quick sight seeing. Even if it was only one night, they said OK to me. I got to drink wine which me made with Chicago pizza with them and had a good talk which I didn't expect and it was really really happy time for me. I appreciate their worms as human being. I strongly recommend you to stay here.
Lucero and Ray were the perfect hosts!
Staying with Lucero and Ray was a dream. They made stay flow so smoothly. The bus that took me downtown each morning was right in front of their building. They were very gracious and friendly. I would highly recommend.
I was in Chicago to be with a family member who was a patient at Rush Medical Center. The walk to and from the hospital was easy and safe, mostly on Taylor St, the busy part of Little Italy. There are many good restaurants along this street. Lucero and Ray were wonderful hosts. They greeted me at the door of their secure building for check-in. My room was comfortable and the separate bathroom was clean. They were very engaging and made me feel at home! I hope to return sometime for a more fun vacation.
