Mitch was great! It is an incredible place to stay in a lively location. I enjoyed every minute I was there! 3 balconies, plenty of sleeping space, easy communication, great amenities.
When I saw Mitch's apartment listed on my search results – my first thought was that it was too good to be true. I took the risk because he had so many five star reviews. For the cost, you cannot find better accommodations in Chicago. This apartment was in the heart of Lakeview where we wanted to be. The basics are all covered – plus a lot more. The king size bed is very comfortable and the amenities are above and beyond. Why anybody needs three terraces I don't know but you will certainly have three terraces and a Jacuzzi and steam room and the list goes on and on. Mitch is a great communicator and very reasonable. He was upfront about a leak and a door that needed repaired. The only drawback for the apartment is the 65+ stairs you have to climb to get to the fourth floor of the walk up. It's worth the effort and I will certainly try to visit again if I have the opportunity to do so.
Mitch was a perfect host and the unit is, undeniably, awesome! Great, safe, neighborhood, walking distance to shopping, and a long walk or uber for groceries. Uber is there at the snap of a finger. The unit is clean, comfy, and the decks are remarkable for just reading, eating, hanging out. Yes, there are a LOT of steps to the unit, but once you've done it a couple times, it's really not bad, and worth it at the top! Thanks Mitch for the great experience!
Mitch was a great host. Was very responsive to communications and made check-in very easy. The Loft is "as advertised" with a lot of space and eclectic look. Especially like the sound system and the three available deck/porch areas. Parking on Fletcher can be slightly difficult if spaces are not initially available, but once a space is found Mitch makes it very easy by providing daily permit passes.
The Loft is very close to the Vic Theatre, as well as, several bars and restaurants (Big & Little's is a great late night spot) within walking distance. Location is also very close the Belmont train station that has the Red, Brown, and Purple line available, which makes getting Downtown very easy.
Overall, a great spot to hold 2 to 4 people that are looking to explore Chicago.
Both Mitch and his apartment were excellent. He was always available for neighbourhood/dinner/drinks/lunch/everything recommendations and made us feel welcome in his home!
Gorgeous apartment in a great location (close to the train, bars, restaurants and music venues). Couldn't have asked for a better first visit to Chicago. I highly recommend Mitch and his place, you wont be disappointed! :)
We stayed at Mitch's over the Labor Day weekend 2015. His communication in the lead up to our stay was amazing an although we didn't meet him, he was a fantastic host, leaving us tourist information for our trip to Chicago, and bathroom essentials out in case we had forgotten to bring ours. Mitch made the key pick up clear and smooth!
His place is amazing - we actually didn't want to go home. It's a great location, taking just 20-25mins to catch a train into the loop - the train station is right around the corner.
I would recommend staying with Mitch with no hesitation!
The loft was wonderful and exactly as described. Mitch was a welcoming and conscientious host. The Red Line train to downtown Chicago was extremely convenient and easy to figure out. In the surrounding area had great restaurants/bars and a nice walk to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. I would highly recommend Mitch and his loft to anyone visiting the Chicago area.
This apartment was exactly as it was in the pictures. It was large, comfortable and the location cannot be beat. Just 2 mins. walk to the awesome city metro system, many great restaurants and a Trader Joe's in the neighborhood. The kitchen is is fully stocked if you choose to cook at home and the 3 outdoor areas were amazing spaces to hang out and enjoy a glass of wine. We loved the surround sound throughout the apartment and the record player with a great collection of records. King bed was very comfortable. Mitch was a great host and we recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Chicago. We have stayed in many vacation apartments and this was among the best we have experienced! Thanks again Mitch for a great stay!
Great host! Amazing place! Clean, comfortable, and cool loft..
Location is fantastic
Will def suggest Mitch's place to friends and I def stay here if I ever go back to visit Chicago
As a first-time Air BNB user I'll admit I was a little apprehensive about the idea, but Mitch and his apartment quickly eliminated any fears. He was very responsive both before and during the trip, and the apartment and neighborhood were exactly as advertised. If I ever find myself back in Chicago, this would definitely top my list of places to stay.
Mitch and Lisa were terrific guests. They were very respectful of the space and great in all communication. They're welcome back anytime!
Mitch and Company were very friendly and courteous guests! The group rented our cabin while we were away for the weekend and it couldn't have been easier! They left the place looking great.
Mitch and Lisa have been just great guests; very friendly, polite, easy going and clean! 10/10 would host them again!
Good experience with Mitch and his friends. I recommend them
Mitch was a remarkable guest. He communicated with me about an issue with the AC, left the place spotless and was lovely to meet in person.
Mitch was a perfect guest! Communicated his needs well.Completely cared and respected our beloved getaway and followed our operating instructions for which we are grateful.
Mitch was so awesome. Super accommodating, polite and left my apartment so clean! I am glad to host for Mitch any time and would highly recommend him to any Air BNB Host!
Mitch is welcomed again anytime.
Mitch and crew were excellent guests! They were very considerate of the space and seemed to enjoy all the amenities that my place has to offer. Mitch is obviously a great host, but he is also a great guest! I'm really glad it worked so well and I hope that Mitch will look my place up again if he is back in Austin.
