I enjoy cooking at home; expect me to share with you!

Interaction with guests

While I work evenings and Kevin works during the day, one of us is usually around. We are happy to be there for anything our guest needs but we respect our guest's privacy and mostly keep to ourselves.

An absolutely perfect AirBnB situation - one that I would recommend to anyone and everyone! Sarah's place is exactly as depicted (super duper eccentric, cozy, and hip space with the most precious pup, Esme!) and the instructions for check in are crystal clear correct. The location is ideal for anyone looking to get the Chicago experience without staying right smack dab in the middle of chaos. Super close to the train while also in the heart of a diverse neighborhood, chalk full of awesome restaurants and shops. Most importantly, though, Sarah and Kevin are fantastic hosts. They are both extremely accommodating, welcoming and friendly, wonderful human beings! We loved our stay in Chicago in Sarah's fabulous space.

Sarah and Kevin were great and communicative hosts. Their home is as advertised: very bright, clean and comfortable in a nice and vibrant neighborhood and very close to transportation. Sarah was very flexible and she was able to let us check in early. Her recommendations for local good eats were delicious! We quite enjoyed our stay and we loved Esme!

Sarah and Kevin's house was a great short stay. We weren't sure what the neighboring area was like but after further walking Pilsen turned out to be a wholesome and colorful area full of people of color creating cool businesses! Great food around! And the room itself was great, with an AC and beautifully decorated.

Sarah User ProfileSarah is a superhost.

I currently live in Pilsen, a charming, diverse, art-driven southside neighborhood of Chicago.

Some of my many interests include reading, music, traveling, cycling, cooking, animals, and nature. I currently work within the restaurant industry in Chicago and actively participate in several non-profit organizations.

As a host, you can expect me to be respectful, responsive, and hospitable. I want to ensure that every guest feels comfortable and safe during their stay. I simply ask that guests are respectful and rational in return.

As a guest, you can expect me to be respectful, tidy, and considerate. While visiting, I plan on spending a lot of time exploring and getting to know the area I am staying.
