Derek was good on communication. The apartment is very cool and clean. Neighbourhoods are quite. Definitely good if you wanna stay in that area.
We had a great stay at Derek's place. The apartment has great location, metro station and bus stop is just couple mins walk. The apartment is very clean and stock up with all the necessities. Huge kitchen that we could make good coffee and breakfast. Derek is a great host, his cats Joey and George are loving. I can't wait to come back to Chicago and stay here again.
Derek made us feel at home right away, beautiful apartment, very clean and spacious with lots of light. His cats are great, loved taking care of them. Would definitely stay at Derek's place next time we're in Chicago!
Communication with Derek was seamless, and he and his two cats made my visit very comfortable. He has a beautiful, clean home in a quiet leafy neighborhood close to the lakefront, trains and buses, and I would highly recommend his accommodations.
Derek is a lovely and welcoming host! The listing itself was fabulous. Very spacious, tidy and organized. The most enjoyable part of staying at Derek's place is his two cats, George and Joey, two of the cutest and friendliest cats I have ever met. We miss them very much! The master bedroom and guest bedroom are very cozy, and heating is very good if you are staying during the cold days. And we found the toilets very cool too.
Location-wise this condo is located at a very nice neighborhood, right by the lake and Lincoln park, where we went for our morning jogs since we were jet lagged. It's only a 5-10 mins walk to the Sheridan station on the red line (tube/overground), and only took us 20 mins to get into downtown (Chicago/state station).
So this should one of your top choice on your list if you are looking to see the nice neighbourhoods of Chicago and don't wanna be too far away from downtown.
We would definitely come back and stay here again!
Derek is an awesome host.He is a great communicator and very considerate.He shared his Divvy bike pass with me once he knew of my interest to use it.I stayed with him for 4 weeks.The apartment is lovely and so are his very friendly (email hidden)e apt is 1/2 a block from bus stop and there is a Divvy bike station at the end of the block and the apt is so close to Lake front which is great place to ride.Derek was also generous with his time explaining directions and suggestions.Thank you Derek for an unforgettable most wonderful 4 weeks in Chicago.
Derek made us feel very welcome in his home. We only met him briefly as he was leaving for the weekend and we shared the space with another airbnb guest who was lovely. He showed us how everything worked and we were allowed full use of his place. Derek has an incredible home that we really enjoyed staying in and two beautiful cats who are so affectionate. The area is very nice and has plenty of bars, coffee shops and restaurants with good links into town.
I stayed at Dereks place for 5 nights, and it was absolutely perfect. Upon arrival I received keys, house manual and was introduced to his very comfortable, nicely decorated apartment. He was very welcoming, friendly and made sure that everything was in order at all times. Derek is a great host, and I am so happy I got to stay with him and his delightful cats. On the day I had to leave, he even made a delicious pizza and baked me some bananmuffins + helped me with my transport to the airport, so I didn't even pay! I could keep writing about this wonderful experience - and I will recommend staying here to everyone.
Derek and his loving cats ,Joey and George, did everything to make me feel welcome and comfortable. His apartment was beautiful,clean, and well organized. Everything that you will see in the pictures and description is what you will find. The neighborhood is both quiet and cosmopolitan and public transportation is nearby. Visiting Chicago for the first time was a wonderful experience for me. What a beautiful city!!!! Hopefully, I'll be able to return and would love to stay with Derek and the cats again.
Derek is an awesome host! He is very kindly and takes care of every detail. The house is cozy and tastefully and the room is very comfortable and spacious. He is very accessible and was very understanding with my arrival time. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and close to The Red Line (Serhidan), Boystown, and the beach. I absolutely recommend his place!
Derek and his friend were really nice guests, enthusiastic, easy to communicate, easy going, and clean, they left my place in perfect condition. Wish I could host them again for their next trip to Bangkok.
Derek was a fun friendly polite gent, who seemed to make the most of his stay in HK,however brief. Great guest to have, tidy and not a complaint to be made. Hope he had a great holiday all around !
Derek and his crew were quiet and respectful. Communicative too. Safe travels and you are welcome back!!
I didnt have the opportunity to meet Derek face to face but he was very courteous and considerate in emails and expressed genuine appreciation of the accommodation provided. I hope he will visit again!
Derek and friends were amazing guests. Was very easy to communicate with Derek before he arrived at the place, they took great care of the apartment, and they even cleaned everything up before leaving. I would recommend him - and anyone he stays with - to stay at anyone's place. Really wonderful, responsible guest.
