I enjoy gardeing and entertaing friends/family in my backyard. Exploring Chicago via a bicycle is the #1 way to get around this great city. In the winter I like esacaping to warm destinations that have sun, sand and aqua blue water!

The apartment was lovely and tidy. The neighborhood was a dream and the area in which the apartment was felt like our little hideaway within the city. The bed was dangerously comfortable. It was close to transit and the local scene, as suggested by Jeff was marvelous. Nothing but great things to say.
Jeff is an excellent host, he managed to make us feel like home. I felt relaxed, well served, and welcomed. The room was clean, prepared, and as described. The listing easy to find and easy to get to the downtown from. definitely worth staying again.
Great stay from start to finish. Jeff is a great host and is very flexible. He's knowledgeable about the area and is able to point you in the direction of some amazing bars and restaurants.
The place is modern, clean and comfortable in every way. Its also a ten minute inexpensive cab ride into the city so is quite convenient.
Would recommend you stay with Jeff if you have the chance and need a good base in Chicago.
We had a great time at Jeff's Pilsen perfection! His apartment is very cozy and looks exactly as shown on the pictures!
Jeff gave us many helpful recommendations on where to go and what to do during our 4 days in Chicago!
Thank you for hosting us!! :)
The listing is accurate in how it looks. The inside of the apartment is beautifully renovated. The place is clean and it was pretty easy to communicate with Jeff and get into the apartment. I would def recommend this place.
Jeff was an excellent host for our stay in Chicago. He was eager to share his knowledge and gave us many tips for places to visit (also be sure to check his guidebook for cool places nearby). Because he at work and we were out sightseeing we did not see much of him, but when we did we had a blast!
The nearby neighborhood has some older buildings but felt very safe -- we walked around at night and took the #18 bus to and from it without any troubles. The bus stop is about a 2-3 minute walk and there is an app so you can head out when the bus is near and avoid standing in the cold. If public transport is not your thing we had no problem with using Uber to get around town as well ($10-15). There are some excellent Mexican restaurants and bakeries within walking distance nearby, as well as a grocery store for provisions if you are staying a few days.
Jeff's place was clean and recently renovated with a beautiful kitchen and bathroom. Our room had a comfortable bed with clean linens and towels. The room is on the ground floor so at times you can hear footsteps, but we never had any problems with loud noises at nighttime.
Overall we had a great experience. We will definitely look to stay with Jeff again next time we are in Chicago!
Thanks guys, good luck in your search and hope to see you back in Chicago for a visit or work!
Jeff is a nice guy and great to talk to. His place is clean and the bed is very comfortable. My stay was fantastic and would recommend his place.
Jeff is a great host friendly and able to provide loads of useful info for getting around Chicago on our very brief visit. The apartment is great, clean and the room really comfortable. Good neighborhood, easy transport nearby.
I would definitely recommend "Pilsen perfection" to anyone looking for a place to stay in this area.
The place is nice, was clean, and Jeff provided clean linens and towels. He also made it clear that we were welcome to use pretty much anything as long as we were respectful about it.
He was super nice and went out of his way to make me (and my friend who was there for a couple of nights) feel welcome. Jeff even got me a mini birthday cake on my last night. How sweet is that?!
Because I arrived late and left early, I didn't see Jeff a ton, but I wouldn't hesitate to book his place again.
A couple of notes on the area:
I didn't use mass transit, so I can't speak to that.
My Verizon cell phone had NO signal inside, but WiFi worked great.
The neighborhood seems a little "iffy" when you first arrive, but we didn't have any issues and even walked around a bit to have dinner and had absolutely no problems, so don't be too intimidated.
Also, listen to him when he tells you there is good food in the area. We went to a little Mexican place. Fabulous!
Wir waren zwar nur für 4 Tage in Chicago, aber Jeff sorgte dafür, dass wir alles sahen, was wir sehen wollten. Die Nachbarschaft ist niedlich. Als ich ankahm war ich überrascht, da das Viertel einwenig herunter gekommen aussah. Aber sehr interessant und schön für einen Spaziergang. Jeffs Wohnung jedoch ist wundervoll, modern, ordentlich, sehr sauber und er hat das bequemste Bett indem ich je geschlafen habe.
Ich würde Jeff und seine Wohnung sofort meinen Freunden weiter empfehlen. Ganz ehrlich, einfach spitze.
Thank you very much Jeff for the perfect trip to Chicago and your awesome hospitality.

Nothing but a pleasure to host Jeff. He was quiet coming in late at night, and friendly when we chatted the next morning.
Jeff was a wonderful guest and I would welcome him back at any time. He is very friendly, was flexible as to his arrival in waiting for me to get back in town, appreciative of my simply fare. And fun to talk to!
What a breath of fresh air to get some big city Midwest personality out here in SoCal! I really appreciated the authentic city vibe Jeff gives off. Don't let his strong voice intimidate you, he's the kind of guy that will give the shirt off his back. A person I'm thankful to have been able to meet and one I'd consider a friend.
He brought us fresh bread, and before heading home even gave us his bike that he picked up at the beginning of his adventure!
Look forward to running into ya again Jeff!
Jeff is a cheerful, upbeat, helpful person. It was a pleasure hosting him.
Jeff was pretty cool. I don't think I've ever met anyone from Chicago. He was up front, in yo face honest, squeezing out every second for life fun (fishing at the coast, skiing in the mts, here there and everywhere) Da Bears....
Jeff was a wonderful guest! Clean, respectful and a pleasure to have around. We are so happy to have hosted such a delightful person, please come back anytime, you're more then welcome, and we recommend you to anyone else wanting to house great people :)
Thanks again! And enjoy your travels!

Five Rosie's Cove guest! Jeff was a nice guest who was positively thrilled to be in New Orleans, which is always great to see! Jeff was communicative, clean, considerate and grateful for home hospitality, as well as local recommendations around town. It was fun to chat with Jeff about our common interest in gardening and I appreciated the fresh, crisp apple he gifted me from his apple tree! He also met up with another Rosie's Cove guest for a tour and when she was running late, had the bus wait for her~very kind! Welcome back any time. Thanks Jeff ❤
Jeff and Marjory were very easy going people and also easy to connect with. We had a good time together. Very nice guests.
Jeff and Marjorie were great! The visit was short and sweet – they got to my home later evening and were up and out in the morning, but we were able to chat for a bit over some local wine/coffee in the a.m. Jeff is a high energy guy – very personable with a good sense of humor. They were both enthusiastic about getting out and experiencing the local vibe. Marjorie is a sweetheart – she spent a good deal of time with me charting out my future garden, which I appreciated so much!! They are always welcome back!
Jeff was the perfect guest, enthusiastic about getting out and experiencing the local vibe, super easy going, and had tons of good advice, as he's connect himself to the travel industry. We had a great time hosting him, and he is always welcome.
