Exquisitely furnished home 20min from O'Hare & 40min to the city. Located in a lovely, green neighborhood. We have everything you need to relax: full kitchen, wood fireplace, open backyard, nearby nature trails. Airport pick-up possible, please ask.

The space

This spacious house offers an affordable oasis within reach of Chicago -- a private bedroom with extra beds if they are needed.

The Glenview neighborhood has historic homes, parks, and nature trails. Our surrounding area is quiet, refreshingly green, and is close to public transportation, grocery stores, and parking spaces.

Guest access

Guests can make use of all common spaces.

Kitchen: guests can cook and use all appliances, such as the stove, oven, toaster, coffee machines, and fridge. The fridge is always fully stocked for breakfast.

Living room: includes a cozy fireplace nook, comfy couches, a large dining room table, and satellite TV.

Bathroom: our home has 2.5 bathrooms, and guests are offered one private bathroom with essentials, such as shampoo, toothpaste, and soap.

Other: access to washer/dryer and detergent, desktop computer, big screen TV and Roku with netflix, and high-speed wireless internet.

Interaction with guests

Interaction depends on the needs and wants of the guests!

My amazing and hospitable mother lives in the house, while I travel between Chicago and Washington, D.C. for work. We have two other listings on Airbnb in addition to this one, so we often have other guests.

The house has a wonderful community feel. Yet, all of us have quite busy schedules, so it never feels crowded. We are always happy to show you around if you are new to the city.

Please ask us if you need a ride to/from the airport, and we can try to accommodate you.

Hi Daniel, we're sad to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. We have been hosting guests from all over the world for the last two years, and have had quite positive reviews during this time. We are very much open to feedback (and have incorporated it from past guests), but you have chosen to not provide any. Again, we regret that you did not enjoy your stay.

Lucy and Marzena are wonderful hosts (more like family now) and would help out with anything ! Very loving people. The house is a homey place with everything furnished. If you need anything, just ask Lucy or Marzena. The area is quiet, clean and safe but still close to all types of stores. Also, the people I've met (other guests, short term or long term) in the house were mostly awesome too. I got to know a great deal of great people. I love this place :)

I am so glad that my very first airbnb experience was with Marzena and her lovely Mum. They are one of the sweetest, kindhearted and easygoing people. When I first got here, they were very welcoming and caring, and since then, I have not felt home-sick at all. I enjoy sitting down with them and having a nice chat. On most days, Marzena's Mum drops me off to work, and takes me back home from there too, which is very sweet of her! Needless to say, I'd definitely recommend this place for other guests who are planning to stay around Glenview. I'll definitely book this place again, the next time I'm around.

Lucy and Marzena are very friendly and helpful hosts and they provide whatever help I need during my 3 months residence. If I have chance to work here next summer I will definitely choose it again.
