About the host...I am semi-retired and have been living in Chicago for over 40 years. You can probably guess that I'm a gardener. I run businesses from home and also teach Thai cooking (you might be joining me for dinner by chance!). I've traveled to many parts of the world and love all the different customs and cultures. I love sharing my home with guests and meeting new friends. I play tennis, so if you do too, we can hit a few balls at the court nearby. Their is no TV in my home as I do not watch TV.
Welcome and enjoy your stay!

Jeannie is a really nice & pleasent person. The Apartment is really nice and clean with an own bathroom.
Das Zimmer von Jeannie ist sehr schön. Es ist etwa 15 qm groß, hat zwei Fenster und sogar ein eigenes Bad! Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit und gibt gute Ratschläge über das, was man in Chicago unternehmen kann. Einen sehr friedfertigen Hund wohnt auch dabei. Das Haus liegt etwa 10 min von der U bahn entfernt. Bei schönem Wetter kann man gemütlich draußen frühstücken und den Garten bewundern. Sollte ich wieder nach Chicago fliegen, würde ich gerne wieder da wohnen.
We, my daughter and me had a really nice week in Chicago. Its very easy to get downtown with the blue line from here. Jeannie is very relaxed and friendly, so is her dog.
The neighborhood is quite, so sleeping in the morning will be interrupted only by the birds singing or your alarm clock. Breakfast in the garden was a superb start in the day.
We would recommend this place to all our friends, staying in Chicago!!!
This was our first experience with Wimdu and we have nothing to complain about.
The house is beautiful, very clean und very good located. It is just a few minutes to walk to the train wich goes directly to Downtown or to the O'Hare Airport.
The room is big and out to the garden. So it is very quiet. The neigborhood ist safe und pretty. You can do nice walks aorund there. Restaurants and a supermarket are nearby. You just have to walk a few minutes to get there.
Jeannie was a great an very friendly host. If we had any quetions, she helped us and gave us good tipps. We can highly recommend her to other guests.
Super accommodation! here you do nothing wrong. The property has a very good transport links to downtown and the airport. In addition, the house is in a quiet and safe neighborhood with some good bars and restaurants. Jaennie was also an excellent hostess ... always happy.
Super Unterkunft ! hier macht man nichts verkehrt. Die Unterkunft hat eine sehr gute Verkehrsanbindung zu Downtown sowie zum Flughafen. Zudem ist das Haus in einer ruhigen und sicheren Nachbarschaft mit einigen guten Bars und Restaurants. Jaennie war zudem eine hervorragende Gastgeberin... immer wieder gerne.

Jeannie is very friendly and helpful. She has a fantastic dog
Easton who was raised as well, incredible.
The room is spacious and a nice bed. The bathroom you have to yourself. Her home is in a quiet street but with the train you are quickly in the city. The garden was covered with snow but there was a degree that they make a super garden woman is.ontbijt you can own and Wi-Fi.
In short, a must for a nice stay in Chicago
Jeannie is heel vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. Ze heeft een fantastische hond
Easton die zo goed is opgevoed , ongelooflijk.
De kamer is ruim en een fijn bed. De badkamer heb je voor jezelf. Haar huis ligt in een rustige straat maar met de trein ben je snel in de stad. De tuin was met sneeuw bedekt maar er hing een diploma dat ze een supertuinvrouw is.ontbijt kan je zelf maken en er is WiFi.
Kortom, een aanrader voor een leuk verblijf in Chicago
I enjoyed my stay with Jeannie She is a charming hostess, generous with her time and advice.
Her house is located on a lovely quiet street in which to return after a busy day in Chicago and the bed was more comfortable.
The garden is still beautiful in October and we can admire her kitchen.
J'ai bien apprécié mon séjour chez Jeannie: elle est une hotesse charmante, généreuse de son temps et de ses conseils.
Sa maison est située sur une jolie rue tranquille où il fait bon revenir après une journée animée à Chicago et le lit était des plus confortable.
Son jardin est encore beau au mois d'octobre et on peut l'admirer de sa cuisine.
Jeannie was very helpful and friendly. Our room and our bathroom were nice and clean. We had everything we needed and sat in the beautiful garden. The location right between airport and downtown at the blue line is just perfect! Highly recommended!
