I really had the perfect stay at Sandra and Alex's place. The listing was just as described. I was in town for a conference, and it was so nice to come back to a warm, cozy and clean room. Alex and Sandra were friendly and respectful and made sure I had everything I could need. I checked in later in the evening which was not a problem, and I was also able to leave early in the morning easily. They even left out some coffee and delicious muffins for me in the mornings. I highly recommend staying with them if you are in the area, and I look forward to my next visit!
Sandra and Alex provided an excellent experience. They were very friendly and did their utmost to ensure my stay was enjoyable: from offering clear guidance on how to reach them using public transport to lending me a bicycle so I could travel with them to the local Strawfest at a nearby village. My room was comfortable, spacious, and had a desk to work on; the house was also spacious, very clean, and uncluttered. A most enjoyable visit.
Sandra and Alex are a very friendly, welcoming couple. They make you feel like a family member, which I appreciate. It was great to have a workspace/desk and chair in the very generously sized bedroom. Totally comfortable on all counts.
Great hosts, quiet clean room, private bathroom. A short walk to a 2 mile nature trail where I lost count of the deer spying me, the bunnies crossing my path, and the songbirds near my shoulder. Close to work in Arlington Heights. Perfect!
I had a great stay at Sandra and Alex's home. Room was very clean and spacious, with plenty of closet, floorspace, and a big desk. Bed & pillow was a bit too soft and cushy for my taste, but had no problems sleeping after a hard day's work! Muffins and coffee was provided every morning (a big plus for traveling professionals like me!) and most importantly, Sandra and Alex were very warm and nice hosts. We had good chat over a hockey game and a beer in the living room. Due to being too preoccupied with a very heavy workday, I completely forgot to check out very early Thursday morning (i had agreed to this), but Sandra was very understanding and my belongings were kept aside for me to pick up in the evening. If I am ever in Lake Forest area again, I'll gladly stay with them again. Thank you.
Sandra and Alex were excellent hosts! They were very flexible with our arrival time and had no problem with us coming and going as we pleased, regardless of the time. Every morning they had muffins. oatmeal, and fresh coffee for us--definitely an added bonus! They offered bikes for the trails that are right by their home, but unfortunately my boyfriend and I had no time to use them. Regardless, I would highly recommend staying here :)
Sandra, Alex and their family were very kind and hospitable hosts. They booked us without much notice and didn't mind that we weren't able to arrive until around 11pm. The room was clean and comfortable and we were even given our own bathroom. Muffins and coffee were waiting for us every morning. Our stay was perfect; I would definitely stay here again.
Great accommodations and the family could not have been nicer. AAAAA++
Cute home and nice room as described. The hosts were wonderfully hospitable and helped our stay to be comfortable and enjoyable. It was just perfect for our short visit to the area.
Our thanks to both Sandra and Alex.
Sandra and Alex were laid back and very easy going. It was a busy house the weekend they stayed with us but they were completely relaxed and went with the flow. We sorry we didn't have more time to talk them about their Airbnb - I'm sure they make great hosts. They are always welcome here the next time they are in town.
Sandra and Alex left our apartment clean and neat. I highly recommend them as guests!
It is always lovely to see Sandra. She's a great guest with lot's going on. Kind, considerate, convivial: always welcome.
Very nice and funny, they left there room very clean and nice.
I highly recommend Sandra for other host.
We hosted Sandi and her son Nicholas during their College tour. It was great chatting with them and finding out about their interests and past experiences. They were tidy, kind, and considerate guests and would be welcome back anytime!
Sandi and Alex booked both our rooms for a family visit. They are great, as are their two wicked-impressive kids.
Sandi and Alex were top-notch guests, thoughtful and gracious. We enjoyed having them stay with us again.
It was wonderful to host Sandra and Alex in our home! Although we unfortunately unable to meet them personally when they stayed at our place, they were great to communicate with leading up to their visit, and it is evident that they enjoy getting the most of their travel experiences. Also, they left our place wonderfully clean, and had even washed and dried the towels that they used! We would absolutely recommend them to you, and we of course would be happy to host them again anytime!
Sandra was a terrific guest. While visiting her freshman son on parents weekend she was up early and out late, always considerate, friendly and on the ball.
