Family weekend

  • 5 of 5

my wife and our four adult daughters rented the house as a base of operations for a weekend in Chicago. There were 8 of us total and the house worked great. The four bedrooms made sleeping arrangements work and having the separate living room in the basement meant that the baby could sleep upstairs without all of the noise. Eileen was great to work with, very responsive, and very accommodating. The breakfast items were also appreciated. Would stay again if need to.

The home was spotless and welcoming!! The beds were very comfortable and the home had all amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Eileen and her husband were very welcoming and quick to respond to any questions. The checkin and check out process was very smooth and easy!! The home provided our large family of 8 more than enough room to enjoy the home without being on too of each other. My 4 year old enjoyed the extra toys Mrs. Eileen has on property for children. The breakfast ingredients in the refigerator was such a great way to start a great experience!! The home is very close to the ohare (15min) and 35 minutes from downtown chicago. The only issue was the basement was colder than the top level but Mrs. Eileen has space heaters as a solution. Overall I would recommend this home as a perfect space to be in for a safe, welcoming and family friendly experience!!

Beautiful Home, Amazing People

  • 5 of 5

Eileen and her husband were just the sweetest. They made sure we arrived comfortably and was very accommodating. They gave us complimentary breakfast- which was amazing. During our last night there, there was a leak in the basement but Eileen's husband came right away to take a look at it! Their home is beautiful and very clean. I would recommend to anybody and would definitely go back!
