Small beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My stay in this small gorgeous home was far the best. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly, business was like 5-10min away from the house. I would recommend it to everyone and would book it again in the future. Thank you Dexter

Safe, pleasant, convenient.

  • 3 of 5

Nice, quiet, safe

neighborhood. Short easy drive to the Forest Park train station and local stores and restaurants. The house was clean and comfortable.

The light in the laundry room didn't work; we didn't see a switch or new bulbs, and even after trying a different bulb from a lamp it still didn't work. The refrigerator had at least a dozen bottles of condiments that were well beyond the expiration date. The freezer had multiple items that had been opened and left by previous guests that should have been disposed of, and a spill that should have been cleaned up. More attention ends to be given to this issue. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay. We loved the area and downtown Chicago. Everyone we met was very friendly and more than happy to answer our questions.

Clean, comfortable home. Perfect for six of us!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights in Dexter's home. Everything was just as it was described. It was a perfect place to stay while visiting the city without staying in the busy downtown area or having to stay in a hotel. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook with and a grocery store was close by. I would recommend this place, without hesitation.

I reserved this place for my friends and family that came out of town to celebrate my graduation with me. The owner was super flexible with request and made their stay an enjoyable one. The place is very neat, cozy, well-maintained and just simply awesome. The layout and amenities was great and it truly felt like home for my guests. The place is very accessible to downtown Chicago and stores. I will recommend this place to friends and anyone.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stop. The house was really nice and had everything we needed. It was a real nice neighborhood and easy to find. The kitchen had plenty of supplies so we were able to eat in. We had a German friend nearby so it made it very convenient. She showed us around Chicago which made it easy for us. The beds were really comfortable and nice size. We loved this place because of the old feel. A real American property. Thank you for sharing your house with us.
