Sofia is our husky, she's very playful, friendly, and LOVES to cuddle. If you're ok with it, she'll definitely join you for daytime naps. She'll also greet you at the door with a big hug!
Zarah and Duchess are our two cats. Zarah is another cuddler and will greet you at the door. Duchess' temperament is closer to a typical cat, but she will warm up to you with time.

As they ay in the industry...location, location, location. That is what you’ll find here but then add a beautiful home and very accommodating hosts and you and a treasure! It was great staying here and Sophia is a bonus. She made leaving our pup behind a bit more bearable! You will not be disappointed here!

Joseph and Francesco's place is centrally located at the heart of Boystown. It is nearby bars and restaurants but still maintains that quiet and friendly neighborhood feel. The room is pristine and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is complete with amenities. I visited during Halloween and the area was buzzing with activity. Joseph and Francesco were hospitable and did not mind guests to tag along with their plans. It was my first time to stay with a couple and they made sure that guests were welcomed and were not intruding their personal space. My review would not be complete without mentioning Sofia. She's adorable and makes everyone feel at home!

Joseph and Francesco's place is beautiful, in a good/safe location, and immaculately clean. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet (by a police station) while also in walking distance to lively bars, Wrigley Field, and the train station. They were very accomodating of my late arrival and early morning departure. Sophia and Zarah are the most affectionate pets ever. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Chicago!

Francesco and Joseph were excellent hosts. Their place is clean and tasteful. The room and bed were quite comfortable. We loved their dog and cats. They are both impressive young men who are caring and accomplished even at a young age. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wishing to stay at their place in a Chicago.
