Halyna was a great host, and the place had all sorts of nice biscuits!
This is a really nice quiet room and close to public transportation. Halyna was very responsive and was there to greet me upon my arrival and took the time to make sure I was comfortably settled in and had everything I needed for the duration of my stay.
It was a great weekend! The apartment is very nice, it is in a calm but exciting area of Chicago. Halyna was amazing, kind, sweet. I'll definitely come back there.
The room was spacious, the hosts were gracious and the neighborhood is quiet and conveniently located next to airport (sorry, couldn't find another word that rhymed).
Both Halyna and her husband were great hosts. They keep a clean house and are willing to go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable.
Anyone looking to come to Chicago on a budget, this place is the best!
I stayed with Halyna for 21 days while I looked for an apartment in Chicago and her house was clean and quiet. Her family is kind. The other tenants seemed nice as well. Parking can get cramped at their house, but Halyna and Nick do everything they can to accomodate you.
It was amazing expirience. I would go back there any time. They are really good hosts and all i can do is say good things about them and i can recommend them to everyone. Nice, clean and quet place and good people cant go better than that.
My fiance and I stayed with Halyna and her husband for 4 weeks. We had a room directly off of the living room. Once a week, Halyna changed the bed sheets and brought us new towels, which was very nice. There is wireless internet, a washer/dryer in the basement, and the kitchen is open for cooking with lots of pots & pans. They also had one shelf in the fridge set aside for us.
Halyna & her husband rent to multiple people, but everyone has their own private room, so you don't feel crowded. You do share one bathroom on the first floor with the tenant of the other rented room on the floor, Halyna, & her husband, but we were aware of this before we committed to the rental, and I found that everyone was on such different work & sleep schedules that sharing the bathroom was never a problem.
The only inconvenience was the nighttime parking situation. During the day, you can park on the street or the driveway connected to the house. However, street parking is not allowed between 2am - 6am, so all of the tenants have to move to the driveway overnight. The driveway did easily accommodate all of our cars, but most of the driveway is only one car width wide, so we had to learn everyone's schedules to make sure we parked according to whoever needed to leave first in the morning. That being said, Halyna did warn me of this before we came to the house because we were bringing two cars, and it did not deter us from staying there. After the first few days, moving the cars from the street at night was just another part of the daily routine.
Location wise, the house is incredibly close to O'Hare, which makes airport travel very easy. My fiance and I were both pleased to find that despite the close proximity to the airport, there is very little airport noise at night. There are also gas stations, grocery, pharmacy, and a metra station nearby. Very easy access to any place you need.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. It was quiet, private, and convenient. Halyna was very accommodating for the two of us and made us feel welcome. The cost of rent was also very affordable, which is perfect for a couple poor medical students like my fiance & I. It is so convenient that my fiance decided to stay there 4 more weeks while he finishes his second Chicago clinical rotation. I would definitely stay with Halyna & her husband again.
Halyna's home is a very convienently located place on the west side of Chicago. I arrived late in the evening and recieved a friendly greeting and good meal. My four day stay in the Chicago area was busy during the day, and much appreciated the quiet and relaxing nights at Halyna and Nick's home. I highly recommend anyone visiting the area to stay with them.
A very nice host..would like to thank for all the help and assistance given to me during my 8 lovely days in Chicago..I would definitely stay and recommend the place of Halyna..
Halyna and her husband are very nice, clean and friendly people. Me and my husband enjoyed staying in her home. They have warm and lovely environment at home. We felt like we came to visit our friends. They were very helpful with directions and place to see in Chicago. Thank you for everything!
Halyana and her husband were a very nice couple, friendly, quiet and very easy to get along with.The demanded nothing, just followed their own schedule. stuck to the house rules to the t and left the room and bath room very clean.I can highly recommend them
This is my parents property and they are absolutely the most wonderful Ukrainian people you can meet!! Very hospitable and you will definitely enjoy your stay with them! The property is near a train station. Very nice and quiet neighborhood just around the corner from a golf club, pond(mini lake), beautiful park and very close to the airport!! I grew up here and enjoyed every moment of it! Currently I live in Australia and I also rent out my place on airbnb, It is a wonderful website and I hope that you will give my parents some great reviews as I am positive that you will enjoy your stay with them!!!
