House Rules :
1. NO SMOKING in the apartment OR on the balcony. The condo association will fine you $500.
2. Please treat the loft and our building with respect. For a number of people in the building, this is their primary residence so please be cognizant of this.
3. Absolutely NO parties. Our neighbors were very nice to let us rent our apartment through airbnb, but the one caveat is that we would not be renting our apartment out for any parties.
4. Please do not leave the remote controls on the top of the cable box (silver box under TV). It causes the box to overheat and as a result, it will not work correctly. If the box stops working, you will need to unplug everything, wait a minute, plug it all back in, and make sure the input is on correct setting.
5. Please do not leave to-go boxes or leftovers in the refrigerator.

Loft apartment is 10 mins from the train to city. We paid $33.00 per person for a week pass which was well worth the value, day passes are $2.00 and taxi cabs are expensive. Register to use Uber, a lot less than taxi and at least you know what the charge will be before you go. We purchased a Chicago Go card to visit popular attractions such as Skydeck, museum of art and history, boat trip. You will save money using this card. So many really nice places to dine. There's so much to see, so pack your bags and go. Have fun!! Check out Groupon deals while there, we did, and saved money on water park admission.

Jordan and Jeremy are great hosts with fast communication. Their loft is beautifully decorated and extremely clean. They have thought of all the details to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. There was plenty of room for our family of four with the couch/sofa bed and two bathrooms. We had a great time here exploring the local neighbourhoods and driving in and out of the city. Thank you for letting us stay!

Just arrived back in Ireland from our amazing trip to Chicago and it's safe to say we'll be back, We fell in love with the loft, forest park/oak park area and Chicago in general. What an amazing time to be in Chicago, the Cubs winning the World Series for the 1st time in 108 years and joining in the victory parade celebrations with 5 million others in the city, Ireland defeating New Zealand for the 1st time ever in 111 years of competition in the rugby at soldier field (the reason for our trip) and the US presidential elections!! The loft is so convenient to the CTA blue line for access to downtown Chicago, we found the Harlem stop to be closer to the loft and this allowed us to stroll through the beautiful circle avenue and enjoy watching the residents of Forest Park exercising their dogs at the dog park. The CTA allowed us to explore many of the wonderful attractions this amazing city had to offer, it also makes access to the United Centre home of the Chicago Bulls very accessible via the Illinois Medical District stop and the arena is only a 5 minute walk from the stop, this allowed us to watch the Bulls demolish Orlando Magic!! Jeremy and Jordan are very attentive hosts and nothing is too much trouble, we highly recommend staying at their beautiful apartment and plan to visit in the future again, we can't thank you both enough for a wonderful stay.

This was our first airbnb experience and such a fantastic one! Jeremy and Jordan were so helpful with the whole experience from the time that their property was booked right up to the checkout day and we felt that we could contact them at any time if we had questions or needed help or guidance with anything. The loft apartment was exactly as listed and had just about everything available that you may possibly need in any given situation!! The loft apartment guide and area information was so detailed and informative to help during our stay that we did not need to contact the hosts during our 2 week stay. The Forest Park area has lots of restaurants, bars and small shops, especially on the street where the loft apartment is situated. Oak Park is about a mile away and has more of the brand name stores in a nice shopping area near the green line cta transport system. *We found the Harlem stop on the blue line cta transport system to be closer to the apartment than the Forest Park stop. The loft apartment was very clean with plenty of extra towels and blankets if needed. The bathrooms were well stocked with soap and little extras in the cabinets. Washer and dryer were so straight forward to use and there was plentiful cleaning products to use if we needed during our trip. The little balcony was a novelty for us to use during the beautiful Chicago weather and great for looking out over the Forest Park area. Fridge was stocked with juice,yogurts and sauces when we arrived. The fresh flowers in vases gave a nice welcoming ambiance when we arrived and chalkboard had welcoming message with wifi info. We can only hope that our future airbnb experiences can live up to Jeremy and Jordan's property!! We would definitely come back to "The handsome loft on Madison Street" if we are ever in Chicago again!!

This is a great place to stay, not only for its location and easy access into the city and closeness to local shops and restaurants, but also because it's a home from home experience. The interior is stunning and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The personal welcoming touches also make you feel valued and special. I would highly recommend it!

Jordan's and Jeremy's place was awesome and beautiful! Although it's not in downtown Chicago, the place has many restaurants and shops nearby. Uber was the best mode of transportation to the city and it was easy to book rides. J and J communicated well with us and were thoughtful enough to leave us healthy items in the fridge after I told them that we were running the Chicago Marathon. Thanks for having us, guys! We had a wonderful stay in your place.

My husband and I bought the Loft November of 2011, and ever since we turned the key it has been a labor of love. Self described property and construction enthusiasts, we remodeled everything ourselves, except for a few key pieces, which warranted a strict learning curve. The Mon…
