Hiram is simply the best host. It was my first experience with Airbnb so I was little bit skeptical, but it turned out very good experience and ended up making host a good friend. He welcomed me very nicely as if I m meeting a known good friend. He is very familiar with the city and can guide you very well. As Hiram being an author he is very good at communication and we had a very good intellectual conversation. He is also a good cook. He made an awesome meal for me, it was so delicious. His place is not very spacious but location is priceless. Specially the view from rooftop is spectacular. Beach is down the street. No need to cross a road as if you are leaving on the beach house.
I would definitely recommend a single person or a couple to stay there.
Hiram was very hospitable, friendly, and accommodating. He even offered to cook for us, although we were never around to take him up on that offer. The listing mentioned a futon which we assumed would be in the living room, but he actually gave us the bedroom which offered us more privacy, but there was less light and it was more cramped than the pictures showed. The building is right on the beach with a beautiful view from the rooftop and red line stops are only a few blocks away which makes it convenient base camp to get anywhere in the city. The neighborhood is sufficiently lit with Walgreens and restaurants nearby for quick food options or to pick up last minute items you forgot. All things aside, this location is a great steal for the price, location, and convenience.
Hiram welcomed us with dinner and we had a lovely chat down by the water. Basic bed and amenities but it was all that we needed at the time. Thanks very much Harim!
I had to stay for a couple of nights in Hiram's place. I love the location of the building. The beach is behind it! Awesome area. Quiet place. And Hiram is very friendly.
Hiram is a good host. The house is very near to the bus station and metro station. Stores and restaurants are also very close. It is in a safe and convenient community.
Hiram was very welcoming and we had nice discussions on the roof top of his building. Nice host!
The host was a very nice & kind man. He was very knowledgeable about the community & Chicago. He even cooked up lunch. The place was nice and right by the beach area. We would stay there again. We could go on the roof of the building and see the entire city of Chicago (and fireworks) for the 4th of July.
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
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.
