This apartment was absolutely perfect for our family trip for 4 to Chicago. Not only was the apartment absolutely beautiful but we were met with a welcome package and all of the information about Chicago we could have wanted. The Ukrainian Village was a lovely area for our 5 nigh…

We had a wonderful time staying in Bret and Aura's place. It was exactly as advertised and more, as it is a wonderfully restored home, light filled and homely. We loved the surrounding neighborhood and all the recommendations Bret and Aura left - especially The Bite Cafe! We fel…

(Website hidden by Airbnb) thorough! Very glad we got to meet you both. We don't get to meet all of our guests and it felt like a nice way to begin your time here. I hope your journey got even better from here. Take care and maybe we'll see you somewhere down the road. Thanks for everything. Bret P.S. We're back in the apartment this week, making more improvements.

It's one thing to let people stay at your place and another to make them feel welcome. This house is filled with all kinds of wonderful things and the hosts are just lovely. I've been travelling for many years and have stayed in all kinds of places and none have left an impressio…
