Brandon's apartment is very nice and comfortable and I enjoyed staying there. The mattress is directly on the floor, which was OK with me, but it may not be to everyone's liking. I only met Brandon briefly when he gave me the keys, but he was very nice and welcoming, and was always contactable by phone if I needed anything.
Staying at Brandon's place was way more then renting a place I stay on AirBnB. Was that as well, of course! But apart from that it was a "life-reconnecting-changing-experience" (the quotes in here are intend to put this in the most honest and humbled way possible and prevent any sort of cliche understanding)
That being said, I'll get to the practical and objective commentary with the best intentions of encouraging people to enjoy them selfs in such a great apartment.
It's super clean, super cozy, there are beautiful plants, if like me you are traveling alone (who's not?) and enjoy their company (who doesn't?). The bed is great, there are all this kinds of really interesting books, it has a grea bathroom as we'll with the bonus of a also great view, that goes for the view from the bedroom window and the heat works perfect. I could go on and on with this but I'm pretty sure that if you are reading this right here, right now, you got it.
About Brandon's it self, I haven't had the chance to meet him, only to get the keys. But there are some people that you don't need to get to know to know that they are excellent human beings, Brandon you are surely one of those.
All the best to you that is about to experience his place in the magical land of Chicagoland.
What a great studio right in the heart of Boystown. The flat was very clean and Brandon supplied all the basic necessities we needed. A great stay for sure.
Booking with Brandon was a breeze! My trip was very last minute so I was a little skeptical about not being able to book instantaneously, but I travel so much I get tired of hotels. He responded to me very quickly! Checking in and out was easier than a hotel and Brandon was very flexible with my departure time. His space is very Feng Shui and the energy is very serene. Beautifully decorated, in a very trendy but friendly neighborhood with lots of shops & restaurants for the foodies! The lake is literally a three minute walk and you can jog or enjoy the park. I definitely recommend this experience for anyone traveling to Chicago!
Fantastic place and great neighbourhood. Brandon was accommodating and responsive and his apartment was bright, clean and comfortable.
This is a wonderful little flat from which to explore Chicago:it's got everything the visitor needs, it's in a great neighbourhood, it's just a few stops on the very efficient Red line train from the Loop, and it's right beside the lake - & the paths and parks and cycleway along the shore. So we found it ideal for getting into town, hanging out locally - & spending great days at the beach (Montrose is within walking distance).
Brandon is extremely helpful: the handover worked like a dream and he was always on hand to answer questions and make life easier! Great home-from-home in Chicago!
Brandon handed everything very smoothly. His place is impeccable and the location great. We can warmly recommend staying at Brandon's.
Brandon's place is terrific.

Brandon have been very kind and very considerate. He responded all our questions quickly and precisely.He is a very brilliant host.
An apartment I defitinely like to stay again.
Two friends and I stayed at Brandon's place for four days and the apartment was exactly as described! It was very clean, charming and it had big windows so it was nice and bright. We were so thankful that it was air conditioned as the weather outside was very hot and muggy. The bathroom and kitchen were perfect as well there were plenty of towels and lots of closet space for all of our outfits! The bed was so comfortable and the sofa was just as easy to sleep on as well.
The apt is located in a great neighborhood near restaurants and shops. Brandon is one of the best hosts ever, he is very friendly, helpful and he is quite quick at responding to messages. I will definitely stay again for my future trips to Chicago!
Thank you Brandon again for your hospitality!
Brandon's apartment made for a great stay. The pictures might not capture it so well, but it's frankly the largest studio I've ever even been in; it's frankly a technicality, the closet and kitchen were so large, too! Everything in it worked as expected and the place is just wonderfully comfortable.
Brandon was an awesome host. I had no problem communicating with him and he was great about answering my questions. He even made sure I had an umbrella and hair dryer, both of which came in super-handy. As far as the apartment, he thought of everything, right down to the two extension cords (one by the bed, one by the sofa) for laptops or whatever.
This apartment's in a great location. I can't emphasize this enough. It's a safe, fun, and wonderfully diverse location with plenty to see and do, and you can't beat walking or running by the lake in the mornings--it's just a block away! I'm not sure when I'll be back in Chicago, but I'll definitely check to see if Brandon's place is available again!
I love Brandon, he has a great heart. A well rounded guy! and a perfect stylist!!!!!!
He is clean, stylish and fun!
