Jonathan and Amanda were wonderful hosts. They responded very quickly to a last minute request and were very friendly. Their home was beautiful, very clean, and comfortable. It was located conveniently and they provided us with a lot of information about the neighborhood that was perfect! We visited several of their suggestions and they were great! Would highly recommend them to anyone visiting Chicago.
John and Amanda are both very easygoing and friendly. Neighborhood is nice and quite with convenient public transportation. The apartment is clean and decorated with taste. The room is exactly as described. And they have the cutest sweetest dog ever! I'll definitely come back !
Lovely home :) peaceful, safe and nice neighborhood. Jonathan is really friendly and helpful host! The room is very clean, big and comfortable. It is about 1.15 hour from O'Hare airport with blue line train and a bus, about 30-40 mins to downtown with red line train. His dog and cat are super cute! The little downside for me is that I have to carry my luggage up to the forth floor >_<
Jonathan was a very nice and helpful host. His apartment is beautiful and very functional, located close to the legendary Green Mill Club! We really loved the neighborhood.
Thanks Jonathan for the the Cub's tickets! A first for us and a great surprise!
Hope to see you, and Amanda we were sorry not to meet, in France.
This is place is great! Jonathan and Amanda were wonderful and more than accommodating. And the dog is awesome! I would definitely look into staying here, again. Make sure you try the cold-brew coffee!!!
We couldn't have asked for a better experience! First of all, Jonathan and Amanda have a BEAUTIFUL apartment in an ideal neighborhood- I instantly felt at home the second I walked in! I was promptly greeted by Sammy (probably the most well-behaved dog I've ever met) and MaCallister the cat, both very friendly and welcoming. The bedroom and private bathroom were spotless and bright, better than most hotels I've stayed in. We didn't get to see much of Jonathan and Amanda since our schedules didn't seem to line up, but Jonathan gave us so great recommendations of places to go in the area. Their apartment is within walking distance to a GREAT coffee shop, Baker and Nosh, which we absolutely loved! Also within easy walking distance to the L train station and several bars and restaurants.
All in all, we had a fantastic visit in Chicago and owe much of that to our amazing hosts!
First of all, if you're a dog lover, prepare yourself for meeting the most adorable and well-behaved dog in Chicago. As soon as Sammy (the poodle?) snuggled up to me, I said to myself, "this beats any hotel."
Jonathan and Amanda have an amazing apartment. It's very clean, the bathroom was pretty spacious, the bedroom has all you need. I really enjoyed the Uptown neighborhood. Lots of places for a quick bite and the Lake is a couple of blocks away. Highly recommend it if you want to go for a quick run in the morning. Beautiful views. The train stop was very close to their place so it was VERY easy to get around the city.
And last but not least - Jonathan and Amanda! Very hopeful, gave us great suggestions, super friendly, all-around awesome hosts. My trip to Chicago was my first AIRBNB experience ever and I am so happy we went with them!
We had such a great time while staying at Jonathan and Amandas place! They made sure we felt absolutly welcome from the first moment and gave us a lot of informations about their lovely neighborhood (also providing some maps we could use). The place was just awesome and the room really cozy. Both were super nice and entrusted us their home while they went on a camping-trip. In the meanwhile we took care of their funny cat during which was a great experience. We would love to stay there anytime again and can only recommend it strongly to stay there during a Chicago visit!!
We stayed with Jonathan and Amanda for a weekend vacation and were very impressed with their hospitality! They are very welcoming and have a great home in a central location. Jonathan gave us plenty of good recommendations and even let us ride along to a neighborhood brewery. I would highly recommend their space and look forward to staying with them and their bichon Sammy in the future
I've stayed with Jonathan,and Amanda several times now and the experience is always a good one.They are warm and gracious hosts with a lovely home and well behaved pets, Check in is easy and Jonathan even gave me a ride to my bus when the weather was bad. The bed is very comfortable, not like a typical sofa bed, and the private bathroom well equipped.A relaxing, comfortable home providing what a great Airbnb experience should be!
Jonathan and Amanda, and friends, were terrific guests. They communicated well about the booking and their travels. They took good care with our mountain home---leaving it neat and tidy. Thanks so much--we hope they can visit again!
Jon and Amanda were great hosts! They have a friendly and welcoming home in a really cool part of Chicago. Jon knows a little bit about everything there is to know about the city which was really helpful. Highly recommended.
Plus there dog Sammy is probably the cutest four legged animal I've ever encountered.
