I had a wonderful stay. Jay was away on business but his lovely wife Ainara was there to welcome me and made the it very hospitable. I enjoyed the conversations and company and through this experience I'd say we became friends as well. The rooms were super clean and the view was beautiful. The bathroom was basically spotless. I have no bad words to say about my stay.
Amazing flat. Prefect location super clean. Easy street parking as well. We drove 2 cars here and always be able to park out front.
Jay has an amazing pad! Amazing view. Very cosy and comfortable room with thermostat that can be fine tuned to any degree. Walkable to great restaurants. A skip away from the great buildings and streets of chicago. Jay was very easy to talk to even though I will need to meet him personally next time around. Jays place is a must when traveling to chicago. I traveled alone and felt extremely safe and welcome in the area.
Jay is super nice and helpful.The place has an amazing view and it has everything you need to have a comfortable stay.I will definitely try to come back whenever I visit Chicago.
Jay was at his house to let me in on time as we have agreed upon. He is very friendly, polite and comfortable to me around with. On the first day he definitely made me feel welcome at his home and offered me to join his mealsharing event at that evening, which I was more than happy to join in, since I was alone in Chicago for the American Heart Association sessions in McCormick place. Mealsharing event was amazing and I got to know great people in Chicago who were all very friendly and social. To McCormick place I could walk from Jay's house for about 15 minutes, which was great! Jay's house location was perfect for me, since it's a walking distance to McCormick place and also very close to Art institute of Chicago and main shopping areas such as State street and with a taxi it takes about just 10 minutes to get to downtown depending on the traffic. And the neigheighborhood was quiet and safe. There is also a busstop nearby which is convenient to take to downtown for cheaper option. Jay's finance, Ainara who also lives with him in the apartment was also very friendly, polite and generous enough to take me to the busstop and metrostop with her on her way to work. She and Jay were always more than happy to show me around Chicago when they were off work and gave me great tips for restaurants and sightseeing. Other than just that they are very international, multicultural and humorous, and have great insight into cultures, socialisation and music. Jay also happens to be a wonderful guitar player who is willing to do fun jam sessions with you if you're up for it ;) Furthermore, the listing description was accurate and the apartment was very clean and warm. I had a really awesome time in my first time in Chicago thanks to Jay and Ainara. It was also my first time to use airbnb and I was pleasantly surprised by this wonderful couple and their great apartment with amazing view of Chicago right in the living room and also in my own bedroom. You would be crazy not to sleep at his place!
Muy buen anfitrion, muy atento y amable. El barrio muy bonito, muy bien ubicado.. El apartamento espectacular.
Recomiendo totalmente este lugar
Jay was a great host, was extremely attentive and made sure I got to the apartment safely. I was in town for the marathon so it was a great location & really quiet so was well rested. Amazing view of the city, certainly recommend.
We had a lovely stay with nice Jay as a host. The room was pretty and we felt very much at home. Also it was a good starting point for touristy trips to explore the city. We definitely recommend staying here :-)
On par with so many of the other reviews, Jay and Ainara were great hosts and offered us excellent accommodations. With only 24 hours notice, Jay kindly accepted my last-minute request and was very flexible with our arrival time. The bedroom and bathroom he provided, and apartment on the whole was clean, spacious and offered amazing views of the city. We had access to the roof-top pool and sauna and jacuzzi as well. The location was excellent and very accessible, and we were even able to find free parking just around the corner. Jay and Ainara were warm and friendly and we immediately felt at home in their place. For anyone looking for an airbnb listing in Chicago, I would certainly recommend this one!
Jay and his girlfriend were extrrmely nice. They made us feel feel really welcomed. The apartment was amazing and the room we stayed im was very comfortable. We had a great time and we higly recommend staying at Jay and Ainara's.
Jay came to stay at my place with his friend from work. They were very courteous and was respectful at my place. Great tenants and recommend them for airbnb hosts.
Jay was very nice. He left in the morning and came home to sleep. We hardly saw him but we liked him and he was neat and quiet.
Jay was an excellent guest. He had great communication prior and during his stay, and he left the room in great shape. We would welcome him back anytime!
Really great guests who we were very happy to meet. We highly recommend to other airbnb hosts. The studio was left clean and tidy,

Jay stayed a few nights with two friends. They were friendly and open and a pleasure to host.
Sadly I didn't get to meet Jay when he was staying with me, but he and his friends came and went respectfully. They left the place as they found it. I'd recommend him.
J'étais absente lors de l'arrivée de Jay et de ses amis, et c'est une amie qui lui a remis la clé. Il a été ponctuel dans les horaires d'arrivée et de départ.Tous s'est bien déroulé. Le peu que j'ai échangé avec lui me laisse penser que c'est un jeune homme sympathique, et je lui laisserai l'appartement sans problème s'il devait revenir.
Jay and his gal pal were awesome guests. They treated my apartment like their own and I was fully confident handing over the keys upon meeting them. My only regret is that I didn't have the opportunity to hang with them around town! They are welcome in my home any time they are road-trippin or "meal-sharing" through the area. Hope they come back soon!
Jay and his friends were great guests. Left the apartment very neat and clean!
Jay was very pleasant to deal with and we would be glad to have him rent from us any time.
