We loved staying in Oak Park! It was a semi- long train ride (30min) outside of the city, but has a lot to offer. We felt very safe in the neighborhood and it was a great place to go for a run (tons of beautiful homes to look at and some nice parks). The condo was clean and as pictured with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay.
Vincent was a great host. Met us on time and gave us the grand tour of the apartment. The space is exactly as expected. Very clean and well appointed, we felt like we were part of the city. An easy walk to anything oak park has to offer and it's just as quick to the L trains. Next time we head back to Chicago we hope their apartment is available again.
Our host greeted us warmly upon arrival and explained all the details about the condo. The condo is lovely and updated; the kitchen is granite and the bathroom is newer. The building is vintage and in walking distance to train and the historic district. Free internet and Netflix. There is a parking space also. It is close to the condo and very convenient. Overall, we enjoyed staying here and plan to stay here again.
Vincent has set my expectations very high for all future Airbnb experiences. My original reservation for a different Airbnb listing in Chicago was canceled by the Host about two weeks out from my arrival due to circumstances beyond either of our control, so my search became more urgent to secure a place for me and my 9 y/o son and stay within our budget.
Vincent accepted our reservation request despite it being squeezed in between two other reservations that bookended our stay which then required a very quick turnaround on his part to ready his loft for our stay and for the subsequent reservation after us.
Communication with Vincent was excellent. He proactively contacted me a couple of days in advance to gauge our arrival time and he made it clear that we could contact us at any time during our stay. There was no need to contact him during our stay, but it's good to know he is accessible should anything arise.
We met Vincent at the lift where he walked through all the pertinent information about his loft, also including generals and specifics about the neighborhood, including where to go for the train (so convenient!) and shops and restaurants to consider while staying there.
We arrived by car and Vincent was able to provide us with an off-street parking option. I was fascinated with the location of the parking spot--it was convenient and our car stayed put during our time in Chicago.
As for the loft itself, it is as described and shown. My son admired the technology (huge screen TV, apple TV and wifi) and I loved the comfort of the air conditioner.
So it sort of goes without saying that we had an amazing experience with Vincent and his beautiful listing. I have already recommended his listing to friends I know who are planning visits ti Chicago. I would love to go back with my husband to see the sights I was unable to see, and when I do go back, I will schedule my visit around this listing's open dates.
I enjoyed meeting Vincent and staying in his comfortably cozy one-bedroom apartment in Oak Park. His charming home is located across the street from the Ernest Hemingway Museum and one block from Hemingway’s childhood home, which is open to tourists. The subway station is only two blocks away, and for merely three dollars you can be in downtown Chicago in less than 30 minutes. Many urban ‘luxuries’ are found in this quaint neighborhood: Starbucks, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Amour de la Terre. Moreover, Vincent's kind and efficient manner immediately put me at ease. He made it clear that should I need to reach him (I didn't), he was only a text or phone call away. Vincent’s apartment is perfect for anyone looking for a private, safe, and quiet home while visiting the Chicago area. Thank you, Vincent, for providing me with a worry-free get-away!
Vincent was a super host. We loved the apartment and the neighbourhood is beautiful. Lovely restaurants, we really liked Maya. Great location & public transport to downtown.
Spent seven days in Oak Park for the holiday's and loved staying here. Vincent was an excellent host and made us feel at home and went out of his way to help us when we thought the extra air mattress was leaking (in reality it was our fault for not closing the seal all the way).
Great location. Two blocks from the El Train, lots of restaurants and shopping near by. Great time was had by all.
He was great- met us at the appointed time, showed us everything in the unit, explained the television and the internet service.Told us to call him for any problem (we didn't need to but I know he would have been responsive) Found an item of clothing that was left behind and went out of his way to return it.
Vince was great throughout. This was my first time using airbnb and he couldn't have made it easier. Vince was even flexible about check in time and allowed me to get the keys much earlier than was required so I could get in early without having to kill time somewhere.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Vincent and Ned were great guests. It was my first experience hosting a guest with a pet, but Ned (the dog) was exceptionally well-behaved. He rarely barked and I often forgot that he was even there.
Vincent was extremely quiet and thoughtful, but equally personable and engaging. We had some great conversations and sometimes I felt that he knew more about the Traverse region than I do (and I've lived here all of my life). When I mentioned that the power drive was broken on my mower, he insisted on mowing my lawn before he left. Wow - maybe I should pay him to come and visit me again. Needless to see - I would highly recommend Vincent and Ned as Airbnb guests!
Just a quick stay for Vincent...late night arrival and early morning departure. He was respectful, pleasant and even removed the sheets from the bed. A positive guest experience.
Vincent stayed with Bill at the ranch. He was a wonderful guest and even helped out around the place. He is so full of Life and information. Bill and I loved meeting him!
Victor was a great guest! He was tidy and picked up after his dog (Ned). Victor even mowed my lawn because he likes working in the yard. It was a very nice surprise!
