This was my first time using Airbnb and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience. I was in Chicago to do part of my PhD and Denise made me fell home. She was awesome. She took me in a mini tour around Forest Park in the first day I arrived and in the first month she lodged me in a bigger room than I rented. She answered all my questions before and during my stay in her house and always was a very courteous and helpful person. She provided all the essential things needed in a house; kitchen is fully equipped, laundry with detergent, bathroom contains soaps and paper towels and a very high speed internet. Forest Park is a very beautiful place and is a safe place to stay. Also, the Blue Line is within walking distance (around 10 min) and takes you into downtown of Chicago (Loop - around 25 min). I'd definitely choose Denise’s place again. Thanks Denise for everything !!!!!!!

This was my first time using Airbnb and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience. Denise was awesome. She took my girlfriend and I on a mini tour around Forest Park on Day 1. I was there for the entire summer and Denise was very accommodating from start to finish. She was always there whenever I needed her with a lightening-fast response. The house has everything you need, and you can find a vibrant downtown just a block away- food, bars, everything. Also, the Blue Line is within walking distance and takes you into the heart of Chicago. I'd definitely choose this again if I visit in the future!

First of all this is a 100 year old coach house that has been maintained, not rehabbed. If your looking for sleek and modern, you find that, if you want comfortable and homey, then you got it. The neighborhood is great. The Green Line, the Blue Line and a Metra Station all are in walking distance, as is the Frank Lloyd Wright district of Oak Park. The excellent downtown district of Forest Park offers cool funky shops, well priced pubs and great places to eat, all local and unique, no national chains. Denise is helpful and attentive if you need something and gives you plenty of space if you don't need anything. All in all, a very pleasant, interesting experience.

Denise is a fantastic host. Her homestay makes me feel like I am home. The other guests in her home are so nice. The home is so clean. Denise is so warm hearted and really made me feel welcome. This area is just perfect. We are in walking distance to everything and easy access to city.

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.
