Communication before arriving was ample and detailed, and we were provided with contact information for both Philip and Christen. Philip was pretty friendly upon arrival, chatting with us about Chicago and himself. We didn't spend too much time with Philip and Christen since we were mostly out and wanted to explore the city. The neighborhood was very quaint, nice, and safe, although the walk to it from the train station seemed a bit shady (take the bus!). Listing description was definitely accurate, and before arrival the bed was made, we were provided with two towels, and the temperature was comfortable.
Philip and Christen were great hosts. I was stressing out a bit about arriving early after an intense work trip, and Philip was very nice to meet me early to hand me the keys. The room was cozy and there was plenty of privacy. The apartment is nice and homey. It's in a very laid back and calm neighborhood as well. I had a good weekend being a tourist in Chicago and would recommend Philip and Christen's place for single travelers. Thanks guys!
Christen and Philip were excellent hosts! They took us in last minute, we literally reserved that same day and they still made sure we were settled in and had everything we needed :) would definitely stay with them again and certainly recommend anyone passing my Chicago to stay at their cozy beautiful apartment. Their dog Beau was also really friendly and welcoming. Thanks again!!
I definitely recommend staying with Christen and Philip. I had a great experience! The bed was nice and comfy, they were lovely to talk to and gave great suggestions on where to go and how to get around and they make fantastic blueberry waffles!Also there is the added bonus of their sweet dog Beau.
Great place to stay in West Town!
Keisha, we had the best time chatting with you! Hopefully we'll escape to the west coast for a minute this winter and catch up with you:)
Had a great stay at Philip and Christen's. The location was perfect for us. The area was fun, loads of good restaurants and bars. Philip and Christen were excellent hosts; answered any questions we had about going out, were really friendly and made us the best pancakes we have eaten in the US (not kidding!). Would highly recommend.
Philip and Christen (and Beau) were kind and gracious hosts. Their home is clean, warm and inviting and the location can't be beat. Highly recommend!
We had a great time with Philip and Christen and of course with Bo, thank you so much for having us! the apartment is very tasteful, has an amazing view and is perfectly located! The room is lovely and cozy! Thanks again and hope to see you again!
Wow, I have a weird airbnb crush on this listing. Beautiful home, adorable couple, loving dog, great location (& fast internet!). When I first arrived, Philip was playing records and working while I looked through their art books--not sure if there's a better way to start a stay.
Philip and Christen were most welcoming and helpful when I needed to directions or public transportation advice. In addition, they are interesting people with whom guests can discuss a multiplicity of topics. By choosing their apartment, you get more than a room, you get a fulfilling human experience. Well, and a canine one, too, as their little completely seduced me!
We had a great time at Christens and Philips place. After a warm welcome we started with a nice conversation and they even invited us to a beer :)
The place has nice furnishings and is really close to the City Center and a lot of nice places around. We felt very comfortable and if we come to Chicago again we would love to stay at their place again. Thank you guys! Hope to see you again some day!
A fantastic couple!!! RACCOMENDED
Nice and friendly couple. As guests, they were considerate, and polite, and very easy to have around. Would recommend them whole-heartedly.
Philip et Christen sont des hôtes charmants et très respectueux de l’appartement dans lequel ils séjournent. Je les ai accueilli avec plaisir :)
Philip is a nice and gentle guy. He's very quiet and he left a clean place. Recommended traveler :)
Christen is a woman very pleasant and sociable, quiet and very hygienic. I really enjoyed your stay in my house.
I recommend without any doubt.
Short time, I didn't have the opportunity to know her a little bit more, but She seemed to be nice.
It was a pleasure to have Phil and his girlfriend at home. They are such a lovely couple : really nice and friendly ! We had time for talking about our cultures and their experience in France.
I will definitely recommend them to everyone !
Impossible to conatct guests either by phone or telephone to make the final arrangements + flat was left dirty...
Philip and his wife Christine were my guests in September, for two nights, when I was not at home. Very nice people, communicative and polite - the perfect guests!
