I'm silly, laid back, and like to cook vegetables.
I'm a host on Airbnb along with my boyfriend, Steve.
Sara and Steve's place was great! I was quite convenient, a short walk to the loop trains and greektown. We had 3 people in our group and all of us fit comfortably in their place. The sofa couch was surprisingly comfy to sleep on. They also have a great rec room in the basement so be sure to check it out if you have time.
We had a fantastic stay at Sara & Steve's place!
The location was excellent - easily walkable to things downtown and close to the El trains in the loop. I suppose I should note that there isn't much in the way of restaurants, bars, or street life in the immediate vicinity, but we still loved the location since you could get to those things easily if you wished but weren't bothered by the noise and other hassles of living above a late-nite pizza joint. The apartment was quiet, comfortable, clean and stylishly decorated. We'd love to try out the patio and the bowling lanes next time! Getting the key from the concierge was simple, even though we arrived late at night. Sara was very responsive to our emails and very welcoming. Though they were out of town during our visit, they had made arrangements for help if we needed it (we didn't).
This was our first AirBnB experience, and I think we're hooked. I'd definitely stay at Sara and Steve's again!
I had a great experience staying here. Very convenient location- there's a market around the corner and plenty of transit options. Sara and Steve were very pleasant and made sure that everything was covered. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others.
Deuter the cat is a perfect host and maintains a tidy, attractive apartment in a great location for exploring Chicago. Highly recommended!
I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Chicago. Sara & Steve were great hosts, Deuter a pleasure, and the place comfy & clean - the perfect size for our stay. Although the area (West Loop) doesn't have a lot of nightlife, it's a short walk to the trains which makes it easy to get anywhere.
Fantastic apartment. Central location, easy to get to by public transport. Bright, clean and everything you need in a home away from home. Of special note the Q room (game room) is amazing! The workout facilities were also excellent--better than any hotel gym I've ever used.
When I come back to Chicago I plan to stay at this apartment again!!
Stay here, you won't be sorry.
The apartment was great! the location, the amenities, the neighborhood, everything was as expected and more!! Sara was very helpful during our stay. She gave us recommendations on her favorite places, supermarkets near by, site seeing attractions, means of transportation and answered our inquiries really fast. She also lend us a tourist guide and bus and subway maps.
I would really recommend Sara as a host at her Chicago's West loop apartment.
Sara & Steve were excellent Hosts. I would recommend to anyone that wants a nice get away weekend in Chicago to stay at Sara & Steve's place. It is the perfect location in Chicago to anywhere you need to be. This was our 1st time to use Airbnb and had such a great experience that we will definitly use it again.
The condo was just right. Right size, right location, right amenities, right cost. Owners met us even though it was after 1 am. So casual and welcoming with their belongings. Secure building but...a whole roof sized deck for walking out onto which we enjoyed due to perfect weather. Basement social activities and TV/online videos didn't even get used because the location is so central we could bike from the basement bike storage to the lake in minutes, check back for a break and out again. The area seemed to be nouveau residential so not a lot of walking traffic at night but safe and clean - right! next to the Union Station for trains and blocks to the elevated train "L" including a line to the airport. No kitty while we were there. The place was very very well maintained and I'd definitely recommend it.
My wife and I had an amazing time during our long weekend in Chicago. Sara's condo was great. The location was perfect--near public transit, quiet and right downtown. The space was great as well. Deuter, the cat, was very friendly and playful as well. Sara was a very gracious and accommodating host. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a great one.
I'm leaving a GUSHING review about Sara. The house was in such perfect order that for a moment, I thought that no one had even been there...then I remembered our enjoyable correspondences. I can only hope that Sara's stay at the house was as positive as my experience of hosting her. Six stars!
Hi AirBNB world:
Sara was my first house guest since joining AirBNB. It was an amazing experience. As someone else suggested in a review of Sara, anyone would be lucky to have her use their space. She left the place tidy and even left wine for me in the fridge. What a gem!
I really appreciate her thoughtfulness and consideration. She treated the place like it was her own home. If Sara requests to use your space, don't hesitate - do it! You will not regret it.
Sara - if you are ever back in Chicago and need a place, look me up! You will always have a home away from home here.
Sara was a remarkable guest. She was very communicative, friendly, and she left the place spotless. I highly recommend her to other Airbnb hosts. It would be a pleasure to host her again, or to host any of her friends or colleagues. Thanks, Sara!
Sara was an awesome guest. She was easy to communicate with!!
Great guest! Highly recommended!
Very very very sweet. Great experience from start to end. Enjoyed hosting Sara.
Sara is wonderful. She is caring, considerate and fun. You'd be very lucky to host her. I recommend without hesitation.
Sara was a pleasure to have as a guest! She is friendly, personable and easy to communicate with. She was only with us for one night, but she left everything nice and clean. She was so quiet we did not even know she had left! We would certainly recommend her as a guest!
Sara was a wonderful guest! She was so busy while here that we only had a little time to chat but it was such a pleasure to have her as my guest. Tidy, respectful and easy going, I'd have Sara back anytime!
Sara was a great guest - place was very tidy when she left. I'd welcome her back.
You would be hard-pressed to find someone with a heart as big as Sara's. She is completely laid back (has that "go with the flow" attitude) and can make someone she has just met feel like they have been friends for years. Great listener, great cook, and all around fun person to be with!
She's also a kick ass graphic designer! She can do it all!!
