We really enjoyed our stay at John's place. The apartment was exactly as listed, very comfortable and well equipped. It was a welcome retreat from our long days in the city. The neighborhood was very lovely and quiet, but close to great restaurants, shops and the train. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We would not hesitate to stay again if we are back in Chicago. Thanks John!

My husband had to be in Chicago for a conference and I went along. The apartment was comfortable and spacious. We particularly enjoyed the back deck for breakfast and drinks at night. Old Town has tree-lined streets, neighborhood restaurants and interesting, renovated houses. It feels safe and is quiet, but close to interesting places to eat and the park. We walked to Lincoln Park Zoo and the Chicago History Museum. John lives in the coach house behind the building. He was careful to respect our privacy, but in reach to supply anything we needed. In terms of the total picture of place, neighborhood and owner, this was one of the best Airbnbs we have stayed in.

A great place to stay! In a beautiful neighborhood, close to nice bars and restaurants. The place was comfy and had enough space for 4 people to stay there for a few days without any problem. John was very nice. One minor issue was trying to get an extra set of keys for the other couple staying with us. John didn't get back to us until we were on our trip. Not a big deal, as he was apologetic and informed us he didn't have an extra set of keys for us. Figured I was too late in asking right before the trip anyway. Overall, great spot to enjoy Chicago from!

John was very helpful and the house was very comfortable. Everything was included and the location is just perfect, only 10 min walk from the nearest metro station and the terrace is wonderful to relax and unwind. The heating and air conditioning was very easy to use and the beds were very soft. I would recommend the apartment for anyone who wants to be central in Chicago and also have a relaxing stay. Treasure Island grocery store around the corner is 5min walk too!
