I love to: grow, cook and eat delicious foods; learn new things; travel to enjoy different cultures, connect with people and take in nature.

The hosts are friendly and helpful. The location is great esp if you would like to use public transport. The location is also quite manageable if you have to visit Northwestern University Evanston Campus.
They worked with my schedule, were pleasant and accommodating. I would definitely stay there again. The only downside is that it was 95 degrees outside at 10 pm, and the apartment doesn't have central air. I was a little warm in the bedroom, but with a window cracked and a fan running, it was comfortable enough to sleep. And the apartment is amazingly convenient to Northwestern University and downtown Evanston. I couldn't have asked for anything better in terms of location.
This is a great place to stay! Michelle and Thomas were very friendly, helpful, accommodating (even despite my very last-minute change in plans), and fun to talk to, though sadly I didn't have a lot of time to hang out. When I got into town late my first night and wanted to get some food and a beer, they immediately started calling places in the area to find how late they'd be open. The apartment and room are both great; there are cute restaurants and coffee shops just down the street, and it's only a 15-20 minute walk (and it's a nice walk) to downtown Evanston, and you get completely different views of town depending on which street you take, which I found pretty awesome. If I'm ever back, I'll definitely want to stay here.
This was my first AirBnB experience and I have to say that it was superb and beyond my expectations! Michelle and Thomas are super chill, friendly, helpful, and just awesome to hang with if you've got a little time. We made s great meal together and on my departure day, they even prepared pancakes. Plus, they let me eat all their cereal! Joking aside, a great experience!
Michelle and Thomas couldn't be better hosts. Per usual I was late and Michelle was kind enough to wait up for me. They even dropped me off at the Northwestern Campus, which is about 3 stops on the CTA (6 bucks cab ride if you're out late in Evanston.) The room itself felt very homey, along with the entire apartment. I didn't have too much time to hang out with Michelle and Thomas but wished I did. I suppose there is always next time.
After the weekend with them, I decided to move just a few blocks away in Evanston - Does that happen on airbnb? Haha. No really.
I enjoyed my stay, and was able to stay an extra night that wa not planned. The hosts are welcoming, pleasant and low-kay. Good neighborhood, although I had to move my car a few times due to parking rules in Evanston. But was still was able to part close. Bed was nice, room was quiet. I would stay again.
Michelle and Tom were incredibly kind and gracious hosts. I was in Evanston for an interview and needed to arrive very late and leave early in the morning. They were completely accommodating re: my arrival and even offered to (and did) drive me to my interview location and back! They were the perfect hosts, and I would definitely stay with them if I were in Evanston again.
It was a great experience staying at the apartment of Michelle and Thomas. They are good hosts and will either leave you alone or chat with you, if you wish to. It's a good way to learn about how some of the "locals" live, in the city that you are visiting. The room has a real bed and it's right beside the bathroom as well. I recommend this place to anyone who has to be in the area, and want a place near to trains and shops.
Michelle and Tom were very gracious hosts. The room was a good value for the price and the apartment is in a very convenient location for access to downtown Evanston and the train or subway into Chicago. Thanks!!
Though I was in and out pretty quickly, I really enjoyed my stay. Michelle and company were super nice and even helped me with transportation. Everything was very comfortable. As an added bonus, tranportation/food/shopping are all within easy walking distance. Would stay here again!
Michelle was a wonderful house guest, and we'd happily have her stay again, if she is every traveling in the area. She was so easy to communicate with both before her trip and while she was her. Our apartment was in good hands with her and her boyfriend. They left the space clean and were very considerate.
Michelle and Tom were great guests, we thoroughly enjoyed both their company and conversation. It was a very relaxed visit since they are both very friendly and ready to go anywhere to see the sights, thanks Michelle and Tom for a lovely weekend!
Michelle and her boyfriend were so awesome!! They arrived later and left the next day but we had great conversations and got along extremely well. They were both interesting, respectful and very tidy. Would host them again anytime!!
Terrific guests, very friendly and considerate.
Thomas, a friend of Michelle, was my fist ever guest with AirBnB and a super nice person to host. The only regret is his stay was short. I really recommend him to any other hosts out there and hope he'll stay with me again when in NYC
Michelle was great about what she was looking for in a place to stay and keeping in touch. I wish I had the opportunity to meet up with her. Would definitely have her as a guest and would like to stay in her place, too if I get a chance. :-)
