Everything went super great!

Everything pictured looks exactly the same in person. The place is super clean and modern looking. We rented a private bedroom and had a shared living space/restroom with another couple. Although we were a little bit hesitant, this turned out to be great because we made friends with the other travelers. We also had the place to ourselves for one night which was a nice surprise. Sandy was very accommodating as my boyfriend and I had a late flight coming in from Los Angeles. We got there about 2 in the morning and she still managed to give us a tour! There was plenty of street parking for those who want to rent a vehicle. She also provided some little snacks, and some toiletries. Overall, a great experience. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

Place very cute and clean exactly as pictured. Good host, good communication and accommodating with the late/early check in & check out! Recommended for booking if in the area. Only issue is as mentioned in their posting you do here activity from the upstairs but not a big deal. Would stay at Joe & Sandy's again!

Our stay at Joe and Sandy'a was great! It was in a quiet neighborhood that encouraged slow mornings with breakfast outside on the patio and enjoying every minute of our stay. In addition to the great breakfast bar they keep stocked, Sandy accommodated my request for almond milk to meet our dietary needs. I would definitely stay here again. Our only hang up was how far the house was from many attractions on public transportation. It limited how much we were able to do and our energy levels after several long days of travel. Otherwise, it wasn't perfect. I felt right at home and I really appreciated how clean the apartment was. Sandy was accommodating to our every need!

Joe and Sandy's place is located in a nice and quiet residential neighborhood. Joe was very accommodating with our super late arrival. Everything was as pictured including a few extra amenities which was a pleasant surprise. The only minor thing was maybe have more television options such as Netflix, Hulu, etc. Joe and Sandy are very communicative, they would check in with us every night to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. Overall a lovely stay, thank you!

Joe and Sandy were very nice hosts. The entire home was clean and it made our stay enjoyable. Central AC/heater and hot water for the win! The kitchen was fully stocked daily during our 3-day stay there! Would definitely book again when visiting Chicago.
