Denise was kind enough to let me stay in a room in her coach house for about 6 weeks. She gave me a tour of the town and was always available to any questions I had. She even helped me get back into my room one morning! Mike, who helped maintain the common area in the couch house did a great job! Everything was clean and up to my standards. The other house mates were great to speak to as well and I even made some new friends. Everyone is very friendly, the neighborhood is very safe. It's a beautiful place to go running! The green and blue lines both require roughly 10 minutes of walking to get to. Grocery stores are nearby and it's one block away from downtown Forest Park if that's your cup of tea. Overall, I enjoyed my time and I definitely recommend checking it out.

Great experience with this AirBnB. Communication was prompt and when I arrived Denise gave me a full tour of the house. She even offered to drive me around to show me the area and placed to eat, etc. My room was awesome, comfortable queen sized bed, mini fridge, wall a/c and fan. There was also a nice study area to get work done. Overall I had a great experience and Denise was always quick to address any questions and she's very nice.

The good : I checked in for one month stay and decided to extend for few more. Home is 10 mins walking distance from blue and green line in safe neighbourhood. Ideal for students and professionals who are on short term or long term assignments. Just bring your luggage and grocery, rest everything you will get from host e.g. washer, dryer,laundry soap, dishwashing liquid , hi speed internet, all kitchen tools appliances , house is kept clean. other 3 roommates were quite and friendly. The bad : House is victorian coach house probably build in mid 19s so it shows few signs of wear and tear which is bothersome, but its not showstopper.

Denise was the most down to earth landlord I ever met. She was awesome. She makes sure that everyone is okay and happy in space. I stayed in the Coach House and it was fantastic. I didn't have one thing to complain about. What is always clean the bathrooms were always spotless and it was a great experience living here. I didn't even have to go to the laundrymat the laundry room is great and Denise does not charge for laundry and provides the soap. this is a fantastic area close to transportation and always safe. I recommend Denise's homestay highly. & I would stay here again without question. it was great to live here meet new people fantastic international students and I learned a lot. A nice life experience.

Denise was always available for any questions related to food options, directions, parking situation which was greatly appreciated. She also check up on every couple of weeks (I stayed almost two months) or every time she saw me to make sure that I have everything I need. She is very friendly and happy to help with any and all questions you may have. Location was great, 5 min away from a LOT of restaurants and bars, 10-15 min walk to Forest Park station - Blue line, and 5 min walk to Jewel-Osko, I never went to green line but there should be a station not more than 15 min walk north. Room and house in general was very clean and comfortable. Every house appliance that you need is in the house from washing machine to microwave. Room is small but big enough to hang my clothes, have a small desk, bed and night stand, all I really needed. Other people that were renting the rest of the rooms were all very polite and young professionals, not making noise or having parties or anything like that. Common areas are big and inviting for day time socializing if that is something you enjoy. Overall 5 star experience and definitely recommending stay here. - DJ

Actually I booked this place for my friend and that is her review: The place is ok to stay but the shower area was so disgusting I stayed there for a week so I don't know about every thing but you have to make sure that you stay in the house it self not in the tiny house (guest house ). I would like to add that the place was not as we see in the app, it's so old place. I asked Denise personally if it's close for the bus stop and she said yes and then after we booked I asked her where is the bus stop she said that she doesn't know!!!! The laundry room was convene and has the detergent. I wish we could see the room before we book. Thank you Zainab and Zahra.

Zehra stayed in my coach house in a beautiful first floor room. She asked me three times if there was any way she could stay longer. I explained I was booked solid- and this is true. I'm curious if the bath was so disgusting why she would want to extend. She explained that she had booked a homestay in Cicero - but was not happy- so her friend booked with me to give her time to find something she would view as acceptable. Obviously she liked her accommodation why else would she request to stay. I received notice from the guest renting the other room on the first floor. Zahra put her luggage and a ton of stuff in her room while she was in the shower. Her friend who booked the room - was the only number I had since she did not book herself. Her friend Zainab told me thru text "she had to go to school in the morning". As if this was justification. She could have communicated with me and asked for a late ck out. She did not collect her belongings until after 6 pm. I sent a barrage of messages and was really irritated at how she would enter someone else's room and impose upon someone else with total disregard. I don't think this woman was unhappy. And that bathroom is inspected by me and clean. Denise J. Mastro

Denise is very friendly. She helps with all questions regarding where to go. Location is also nice, close to metro line and plenty of buses. Nice ZOO in a few miles from the house. Huge shoping mall within 10 minutes on bus. Highly Recomend this place.

Since you’re thinking about staying with me, let me introduce myself! My name is Dee and I’ve been living in the Chicago Area all my life. And I live quite a happy life. Here’s a bit more about me.

--My Hobbies--
I love the outdoors and I love to exercise. So daily you’ll find me riding the beautiful bike path near my house all over the area. If not biking, you can also often find me running my dogs on the local paths and parks.

--Why I Do AirBnB--
I do AirBnB hosting because it enriches my life. When people come together from all over the US and the world, long lasting friendships form. Also Chicago is one of the most beautiful American cities, and I love helping people when they visit our city, and surrounding suburbs. This is why I really do my best to create a fun, and warm environment for every student that stays.

--My Work--
Simply stated, I am an entrepreneur, and have been most of my life. During that time I have created, owned and operated 4 businesses, including my current company, A+ master tutoring center, located in Oak Park Il. I am a certified educator. I became interested in education several years ago and became a teacher in American public schools, then I decided to start my tutoring center.

I love running my tutoring center because I have been able to help countless children learn essential skills that prepare them to take charge of their lives when they leave school. I love helping American children and adults of all ages because I believe our school system is a disappointment.
I love working with students from all over the world because they are amazing and restore my faith in humanity.
