A great home away from home for travelers. The hosts were very courteous and respectful. Plus only 10 min walk from the L train, which makes exploring the area totally accessible. The whole place is clean and roomy.

My husband & I enjoyed our stay. Elizabeth was flexible with our check-in, which I appreciated since we had to check-in late. While we did not meet Elizabeth during our stay, she touched base with us to make sure that we got checked-in and settled. She was also quick to respond to my text questions. This was a cool & unique converted attic space with a super-comfortable bed. I also liked its proximity to downtown Chicago and Lake Shore Drive. We would definitely stay here again.

This apartment is so much more than the pictures. The bed is very comfortable and the AC works great. The kitchen is fully furnished, and the treats were quite welcoming and thoughtful. Since I love my morning coffee, I was overjoyed at a choice between a drip or a French press coffee pot. And the coffee was supplied! We walked to the lakefront and enjoyed the many beaches that are available and loved looking at the homes and architecture. L. We had a car, but public transportation is close by. We will definitely return when we're in the neighborhood.

Elizabeth was responsive and accommodating. She went above and beyond - returning to me an item I inadvertently left behind. Since we got in late each night, it was great the unit had a separate entrance. If you stay on a weekday, avoid parking on Sheridan during rush-hour, as you may get a ticket.
