I'm an architect and engineer currently doing free-lance consulting work. I love music, travel, art, and books.
Curt is a great, trustful and flexible host and the flat is situated in the great area of east lake view, just around the corner of the lake, nice cafes and restaurants, blues bars and not so far from the loop! All the organisation was perfect! The room is tiny and not very tidy, but its perfect for a short stay. Maybe a little bit too expensive.
Great property in an awesome location. Worked well for my stay and apartment search. Much better than a hotel room!
Curt was professional and responsive. The place is exactly as pictured - a couple of beds, a bathroom, and basic kitchen. The location was ideal for my trip. I found it perfect for my trip as I needed only to sleep and shower.
If you are not familiar with the area, its an easy 10-15 minutes to L, convenience stores are a block away, along with a number of food options within an easy 3 block radius. The area is pretty quiet for a city room. The heater worked when it was 15 degrees the first night and Curt had pillows, sheets, and towels along with basic shower supplies so you do not need to find or bring them.
I would stay there again and I thought Curt was easy to deal with.

We had a wonderful time staying at Curt's! The location couldn't have been better for our week stay and St.Patrick's day celebrations. Curt was also very helpful and accommodating with check in and out, and the apartment was just what we wanted- with all the basics.
I couldn't have imagined having a better experience for my first AirBnB stay!

We enjoined our stay so much. The house is basic but perfect to a couple. The neighborhood is perfectly located. We loved it.
Curt is awesome and a pleasant guy. He was waiting for us with the keys, and the place was great-- very clean, spacious, comfortable, exactly as described.
The area is a quieter side of town near college towns, boutiques, and mom pop shops on the charming side of town.
Curt (email hidden)! Even before I arrived to Chicago it was really easy to communicate with him and he quickly answered all my messages. He gave me very clear instructions about where were the keys and everything else. The apartment was clean, the air bed was really comfortable and it was great to have the hole apartment just for me, with a complete kitchen (stove, refrigerator, microwave), hot water and heating system. The studio was in a nice & safe area, walking distance (around 4 blocks) from the metro (cta). One block north there is a CVS and a 7 Eleven. Taking in consideration all the advantages of this apartment, I consider it was rented in a very good price.
I had a great time in Chicago, living like any other local in this studio. This was my first time using airbnb and I must say it was an excellent experience! I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely continue using this website.
This studio is in a great location. We felt really safe in the building and had a great time exploring the surrounding area . However, we were a little unsatisfied with the cleanliness of the place. When we arrived, our sheets were unfolded and had hair on them, which made us concerned that they hadn't been washed since they were last used. There were some suspicious looking stains on the bathroom carpet and pillow cases. Luckily, there was a washing machine so we were able to wash everything. This place was great for just a few days, but longterm the cleanliness would have bothered me. There is some visible mold in the bathroom and kitchen, and the shower doesn't work too well. If you are looking for something simple at a good price, then I would recommend this place. Just don't be too concerned about aesthetics.
Curt was great! Clean, responsive and so friendly. Would absolutely recommend to other Air BnB hosts.
I love Curt! He's the sweetest guy. I've never (email hidden), but I've spent a lot of time there getting help on my school work. I'm in a demanding program, and I struggle with math sometimes but he is always willing to help! Lakeview rocks, and so does Curt and his place! lol
Curt is such a nice guy. We've been friends for 3 years and more recently have become neighbors as well so I can assure you he is a cool person that lives in a cool neighborhood. He's kind of a minimalist so his place is always very clean and clutter free. He'll leave the apartment to you, but if you have any questions about the neighborhood or the city he knows the answer; he's a Chicago history buff!
