ABSOLUTELY LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this home more than 5 stars, I definitely would! Eileen and her husband did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. We went with our full family, including our 16 month daughter. Eileen went above and beyond to make sure our daughter had everything she needed - milk, a pack 'n' play, a high chair, toys, and even a safety gate on the stairs... not to mention the awesome little park RIGHT next door! We can't wait to rent this house for our next visit to Chicago. 100% RECOMMEND!

Great owners, good house!

  • 4 of 5

The best part of our stay was the owners. We had an issue with the internet not working, and they took time of out an important family engagement and fixed the issue! There was enough space for everyone, and the separate space downstairs is perfect for the additional family in our group. Having the park right next door was awesome for my toddler. The bathroom could be cleaned a bit better in the shower as there was some mold around the window. There were more than enough towels, which was awesome. One other issue we had was parking. Parking on the street it first come first served. We were usually able to find a spot. One car in our party parked at the park for the weekend. We found a ticket on their car on Sunday morning. There were no signs anywhere stating you could not park there. Being told this ahead of time would have been helpful because we would have found another place to park their car for the weekend as it didnt move all weekend. Other than that, it was a very good stay and we would stay there again!

Owner's Response: Hello Maranda, Thank you so much for staying at our property. Thank you also for leaving a review. We are always looking for ways to improve the experience for our guests. Gosh, I am shocked and disappointed to hear about the mold around the window of the bathroom. I wish you have mentioned something to me while I was there at the property with you so that I could have had it addressed immediately with the cleaning crew we utilize. I am always very strict about cleanliness and am very upset that this was overlooked by them. As for the parking ticket. There has not been an issue with parking tickets on the residential street ever unless there was a truck parked. You may not have noticed the parking restrictions signs that were posted on each level in the back porch with mention of the street cleaning days and times. It is also documented in the Guest services book provided at the property. We really appreciate the feedback very much and hope that you will come back to stay again, you are welcome back anytime. Kindest regards, Ambrose and Eileen

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

When the "Family Girls Weekend" we were planning turned into a girls weekend for 11, we knew staying in a hotel wasn't an option. So, we decided to find a house that would fit all of us together. Never did we dream that we would be so lucky to find this amazing place! Evenings around the dinning room table playing cards and board games gave us the best opportunity to spend quality time together. Eileen and Ambrose were always available and provided plenty of information about the area. We would love to stay in their wonderful home again!

Class of 74 reunion in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

Exactly that "Your home away from home" the Elmwood Park property is better than the pictures on the website, Ambrose & Eileen are great host and responsive to all your needs and concerns. If your visiting the Chicago area with your family or friends this is the perfect place to stay, especially the 2 day comp breakfast was a great helper to start our visit. We highly recommend the Elmwood Park property and when we return to the Chicago area will defiantly try to re-book with Ambrose & Eileen...

Wonderful girls' weekend

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of six for a weekend away! As sisters and cousins, we just loved having a clean, cozy, conveniently located home for a girls' weekend. We appreciated having all of the fixings for breakfast each morning and a dining room table perfect for meals as well as endless hours of playing games. Thanks for your hospitality!
