Hiram is a great company and good cook, he cooked us a two really great dishes and even bought some drink for us. He gave us a private room tp make sure we have our own freedom, that's so considerate. His apartment still wonderful that just bear lake beach. Maybe our english are not so good, so we didn't chat a lot, but you still can felt his hospitable. The only pity thing was that the roof's wifi was dead, so it was hard to connect.
Hiram was very helpful and made sure my stay was comfortable. He planned his work around my check in and check out time. There is a great view of Lake Michigan from the roof of the apartment.
The apartment is very spacious and nice, Hiram really made you fell welcome. I had a privet bed room, a completely freedom to go in and out with the tranquility of a 24 hours doorman. I felt I was in a hotel. The apt has a lateral lake view and a terrace in the building that gives you a total view of Lake Michigan. Definitely If I any day I will go back to Chicago I will try to stay here again. Hiram is a great host and made me feel like home. 5 stars
Hiram's place was my first experience with AirBnb...I have to say overall it was a pretty okay one. For the most part I was gone, but it felt welcoming to come back to.
I had the bedroom to myself, and Hiram was great company.
The only cons I would have is the shower was a little dirty for me, and upon my departure I felt as though I was being thrown out of the place. He didn't ask me to go outright, but kept asking me; at what time I was leaving...even in the midst of me packing up my things that morning.
Hiram is a very nice guy with a great location for transportation, those 2 listed were my own problems with the space.
I have known Hiram ever since around 1995 and am glad to say he's friendly, helpful and very organized. Definitely recommend.
I have known Hiram for over 16 years and we were roommates for over 2 years. I have had many roommates and Hiram has been by far the best. Hiram is a no drama, kind, easygoing, respectful individual. He is giving and communicative but also likes peace and privacy. Even though we live far way now, we always keep in touch and see each other with some regularity. I enjoy our chats and conversations and I am always looking forward to going to Chicago to stay at his wonderful, easy access, beautiful views apartment. If you pick Hiram as your host you will not regret it. Come as a stranger leave as a friend. Hiram's welcoming persona, warmth, great conversation and reliability will make you feel right at home.
