Lovely home with an incredible outdoor area and deck for barbecues and evening drinks! Helen and Hans were very quick to respond to any questions and provide tips for the area.

10 of us came stayed in Hans and Helen's beautiful flat while in Chicago for a conference. It was a great amount of space and perfect location for traveling downtown. A perfect place to stay if you want something homier than a hotel but with a bit of luxury.

The previous reviews which had praised this accommodation were completely accurate. If we were to come to Chicago again we would definitely choose to stay here. The rooms were luxurious and we felt extremely comfortable during our stay. It is also very near the blue line metro so very easy access both to the centre of Chicago and OHare airport. I could also walk in to the centre in an easy 30 minutes. A great place which I thoroughly recommend. Two very small points which in no way detract from the quality: 1. We had trouble with the keys and the front door but Hans sorted this for us. However we did need to struggle a bit to get in. 2. I never quite mastered the complexity of the dimmer lights! It took us a few minutes each time to ensure all lights were completely off. Maybe the instructions could be a bit clearer about this.

Hans and Helen's house was beautiful, well situated for our holiday and perfect for what we needed. They were super helpful in the run up to our stay and we couldn't have asked for nicer hosts. The only bad thing was having to leave at the end!

Beautifully designed space that provides outdoor and indoor common space as well as lots of privacy and personal bathrooms. Hans and Helen were really welcoming and helpful and sorted out some minor issues with wifi connections with charm and speed. I liked the neigbourhood on W Chicago a lot. We would definitely stay here again.

The place was fantastic - we actually rented the lower unit the 1st night and then moved up to larger unit which was a breeze to do with Han's help. Location, Location, Location - for sure - we were able to easily walk to various restaurants & shopping nearby and in downtown Chicago. Uber / Lfyt had no problems finding us either. The garage space was an added bonus. 1st time renting an airbnb, was a little nervous, but everyone said it worked out great. Thanks !
