If you want to stay in a cool part of Chicago where the locals hang and away from the tourists, Wicker Park is the neighborhood to be. Drew's place is on the best street in Wicker Park. Drew's home was definitely spacious and clean. We loved that his stereo system connected wireless to our iPods/iPads so we could listen to our playlists while hanging out with our friends. His place was very well furnished and we were able to cook a great meal and comfortably seat all 7 of us. Communication was always open and Drew responded in a very timely manner. I would definitely recommend his place. We're already talking about a possible trip back in the summer!
This was one of my best Airbnb stays to date. The house exceeded expectations with two living rooms, 4 bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms. One of the living rooms has an apple tv hooked up which enabled us to project movies from our laptops. The house is located near the best bars and foodie spots in Chicago. The nearest Intelligentsia is a couple miles away, but Caffe Streets filled in that void with its delicious, bourgie cappuccinos, house made chai, etc. and is only 0.5 miles away. Drew responded quickly to all my questions before and after booking the place and was extremely hospitable, eg allowing us to stay past the 11am checkout when some of our flights were delayed due to snow. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We couldn't have asked for a more gracious and accommodating host than Drew and his family. The house was spacious and perfect for our party of 9 which included three children. Drew checked in with us after arriving and during our trip to make sure we had everything we needed. This was our first time using AirBnb and it was truly a great experience thanks to Drew's hospitality. Thank you for a lovely time!
Drew was a phenomenal host. His home was exactly as described and he always made himself available to get us situated and answer questions .
My family and I all met in Chicago for Thanksgiving and Drew's home was perfect to accommodate the six of us. His kitchen had everything we needed to cook an amazing meal and the location was perfect experiencing the best of Chicago.
Thanks again, Drew!
We liked Chicago, and in large part thanks to Drew and Shea and their
The hosts are very kind and helpful, they were giving us all sorts of
advice: food places, clubs, getting around, etc. Their kids are very nice,
not of a shrieking kind.
The room is located on the ground floor (located mostly below the ground),
and is fully for the guests, complete with a private bathroom and a closet.
Everything was in good condition and very clean.
Last but not least, we enjoyed the neighborhood. I recommend taking a walk
up the Hoyne Avenue to the Wicker Park and enjoy the buildings and the
quiet atmosphere. Add to that the fact that you can reach the downtown by
taking 2-3 metro stops, and you get a superb location.
I would definitely recommend staying here. In fact, we ourselves got there
thanks to a recommendation from our friends who had stayed with the hosts
Awesome hosts. Super easy and enjoyable to speak with. The room is on it's own floor with a private bathroom, so you get the feeling of having your privacy and at the same time being able to be social with Shea and Drew.
Drew and Shea are super friendly and helpful. They are awesome hosts.
The room is huge and the apartement is located in a great neighborhood.
I totally recommend booking with them. We will, once we are able to come back to Chicago.

We had a wonderful stay at Drew's place. The location worked out perfectly for us. Drew is very accommodating and even helped us find a parking spot. The room is lovely, spacious, private, and very clean. Drew's family is warm and welcoming. I hope his place is available when we come back to Chicago. I give it my highest recommendation!
Drew and Shea were great hosts! We were only in Chicago for a couple days, but they were very welcoming and friendly. The room and bath were as described. The bed was very comfy, and we slept great the entire visit. We enjoyed walking around their neighborhood, which offered several eating and shopping options, and it didn't take long via public transportation to be in downtown Chicago. It was very nice to have a bus stop right in front of their place as well when returning late at night. We couldn't be more happy with our first Airbnb experience.
Drew and his family were model guests. No complaints whatsoever. Drew was prompt, communicative, and respectful of the house. I would recommend Drew to anyone considering hosting them.
Drew is a great guy and wonderful guest. He's thoughtful, respectful not to mention very interesting and interested in his hosts. We were lucky to have had some time to spend with him and get to know him better, which we love. We would recommend him as a guest to anyone.
Drew and Shea are some of our best friends in the city. We've spent an inordinate amount of very fun time at their huge and gorgeous and fun and welcoming apartment and are in fact heading over there tonight for yet another amazing, fun, loving meal I'm sure. They are such incredible and welcoming hosts to us as friends, I can only imagine how lucky you'll be as a guest of theirs. Loving food and fun as much as they do they've located themselves in the heart of some of the best eating in the city, literally steps from their front door. I can recall being blown away by one burger joint in particular near them, among a number of other incredible dining experiences in their hood. They in fact encouraged us to also do airbnb, and it's been a blast, we love it as much as they do.
