Angie and Mike are perfect hosts. It was like living with my own family. They are very welcoming, supportive and warm-hearted people. They helped me to get to know the neighborhood with all the hidden nice places. I always felt comfortable and enjoyed cycling around; UChicago was in convenient distance.
Angie and Mike are incredibly friendly and nice people! I am very glad that I stayed at their place. Their home is cosy and comfortable, their backyard is beautiful and they are so hospitable! Thank you!
