Jessica and her parents were fabulous hosts! Jessica's apartment is very homey and the bed was very comfy! It was a quiet, secure building in a safe neighbourhood. Although there is no assigned parking we had a fairly easy time with free street parking (even in the snow). Having Jessica's parents next door was also reassuring for us since it was our first time using this site. They were very welcoming and always willing to help us with anything! Thank you Jessica, Barb and Charlie - I'd recommend you to anyone looking for a Chicago home away from home :)
We had a very good time in Jessica's appartment. She is a very kind person (we had a problem at our arrival in Chicago and she had waited for us late). Thank you so much Jessica !!
The appartment is located in a safe neighbour with lots of shops (grocery's, restaurants, good breakfast at Nookies, ...).
Train to go into Chicago is very closed (5min to get it and almost 30 min to go into Chicago). The inconvenient of this advantage is that you've got the noise of the train inside the appartment. It wasn't a problem for us because we had brought earplugs with us and we slept well.
Nous étions 5 et nous sommes restés une semaine chez Jessica qui nous a parfaitement reçus.
L'appartement est plein de charme, situé dans un quartier très agréable. Plage, commerces, restaurants et transport en commun sont immédiatement accessibles. Le stationnement est relativement aisé. Nous sommes très contents de notre séjour.
Jessica was a great host. the apartment at edgewater is great! it feels like home and it's very well equipped, and also very well located!
Jessica's Bohemian getaway was awesome! We had a great time staying at her apartment in Edgewater. The apartment was spacious and cozy at the same time. The bedroom was huge and the bed was very comfortable. The dining room could seat 10 people comfortably, and the side office was a great perk to get some work done while staying there. The area is great with so many restaurants, cafes, and a short walk to the CTA and the best beach in Chicago. The apartment neighbors are extremely friendly. You definitely will feel at home.
Cecil and Jessica are hospitable hosts and their apartment is a convenient 5 -10 minute walk from the Blue Line Division stop. I felt quite at home with as much privacy as needed. Malcolm the cat is very loveable, and having a private a bathroom is also a plus. I enjoyed my stay and would be happy to return on a future trip to Chicago.
We had an excellent experience at Jessica's and Cecil's place. Jessica was really welcoming and warm with lots of knowledge about Chicago and what to do there. The flat is beautiful and very centrally located so its easy getting around Chicago. Amazing breakfast as well...thanks a lot
We had a great trip to Chicago and also a great stay, thanks to Jessica! The place was very nice and clean, and hosts (including the super-cat Malcolm) were very friendly and helpful.
Great experience. Cecil, Jess and Malcolm are excellent hosts. The place was clean, comfortable and really felt like staying at a friend's house. They know so much about the city, where to eat, how to get around, and their place is in a great location to go anywhere. I would definitely stay with them again.
My husband got a job offer and had to relocate to Chicago fairly quickly... He stayed with Cecil & Jessica for almost 2 weeks while we were apartment hunting. I stayed with them as well for a solid 4 days as well.
They are laid back, hospitable and friendly. The accomodations were clean and comfy. They provided breakfast items for us like toast, fresh fruit, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, tea, etc...
Malcom, their cat, is so sweet and cuddly too.
I would highly recommend this AirBnB spot to anyone! We had a parking space as well which is hard to come by in Chiago. They gave us a key to come and go as we please. 5 minute walk from Division Blue Line station. Walking distance to Bucktown & Wicker Park hot spots as well.
We look forward to seeing them again soon once we are settled at our new place in Chicago! Cannot thank you enough for everything!
Jessica was so easy to host. Here is a plus: no guest has ever left my place more neat and orderly. Definitely recommend.
Jessica was a great guest. Communication and check in/out was easy, and she left the place clean. I recommend her to other hosts.
Jessica fit right in here and I loved having her as a guest. She is the same age as my older set of daughters and could move in here tomorrow as far as I'm concerned!
cecil was a nice guest who was polite and friendly. he kept in touch regarding his arrival and departure which was helpful. i would recommend him :)
Awww.... Cecil and Jess. A wonderful couple. Chicago is lucky to have them, because these two oooze culture. Both activists, music lovers and in general I can safely characterize them as "really cool". Throughout the years I have gotten to know them over guacamole, DJs, outdoor music fests and conversations on the latest news. They are always willing to engage, learn something new, and take on the next Chicago event. If you stay at their place or host them during their journey, expect lifelong friendship, laughter and listening to some really good music.
Cecil and Jessica are great friends and fabulous hosts! They're wonderful home is a great place to stay in Chicago. It's close to public transportation with easy access to get all over the city. They are connected to local community groups doing important social justice work in Chicago and can tell you about events and actions happening in the city. They can recommend great restaurants and places to hear live music and you might even be lucky enough to be in town to hear Cecil DJ.
If you're looking for a warm and welcoming home and people who really know Chicago, you want to stay with Cecil and Jessica!
Cecil and Jessica were a great AIRBNB experience!! The apartment was located in a great neighbourhood surrounded by local shops and restaurants, the blue line subway was conveniently within walking distance from the apartment. Cecil and Jessica are both Chicago raised which gives them an upper-hand on attractions and any must see places! They were extremely friendly and helpful with any questions I had! The cat Malcolm will welcome you into the home and not hesitate to cuddle up with you! I definitely recommend Cecil and Jessica for a hassel-free, fun,friendly, clean Chicago experience!
I will come back and stay with them for sure!
Cecil and Jess are one of the coolest couples I know! You will not be sorry if you decide to stay with them. Their apartment is fairly large for Chicago and centrally located. Plus, they'll know all the hip spots to hang out nearby. If you're a big music fan, allow yourself some extra time to speak with these guys about all the great stuff they're listening to. Maybe you can even convince Cecil to give you an in-house DJ experience for the night!
