Ginger and Jim’s place was a fantastic home base for our plans in Chicago as well as the north suburbs. Ginger and Jim were great hosts. We appreciated the many great amenities, including plush towels, snacks, condiments, and comfy beds. Very highly recommend!

We could not have asked for a more perfect house for our trip back to my hometown, Evanston. The house was the perfect size for our family, two adults and two kids (9 and 12 yo), with our own very comfortable beds and two bathrooms. The nightlights and sound machines in the rooms were awesome, we normally travel with ours but no need here as they already had them. You are on a main street so there is some street noise to be expected, but with the blackout curtains and sound machines, we all slept amazing. The access to laundry was fabulous, and although we didn't explore the backyard it looked lovely. We walked 10 mins down Main to a great coffee shop and stores, and walked the 25 mins to downtown Evanston for lunch and shopping. Ginger was so lovely and it was great to hear about the history of the house too! Cannot recommend their place enough and we will definitely be coming back.

I'm not usually the type to leave reviews (call it lazy) but it's warranted here. The hosts laid out everything in detail making our stay seamless and comfortable. I would 100% come back here again or even move in if they (and my wife) would let me. Great spot if visiting Evanston/Northwestern. Easy access to Chicago (downtown or anything north). I could go on and on but I don't want to set expectations too high :) Our group had 1 elderly person that had trouble with stairs (4-5 out front that are easy enough to navigate and a fold out bed and half bath on the main level). I also had two kids (7 and 5). They loved it. The hosts went above and beyond to make it an easy and fun visit for kids and adults alike. Travelling with an older person and two youngish kids is never easy but this spot and the wonderful hosts make it as easy and enjoyable as I can imagine. Thanks again! We can't wait for our next trip.

I would highly recommend Jim & Ginger's home to anyone considering a stay in Evanston. The house itself was beautiful and comfortable, with almost too many small touches to mention. The house manual was clear, detailed and very helpful. Communication with Jim & Ginger was easy and they were very flexible. This is one of the best Air BnB properties that I have experienced.

Ginger and Jim are amazing hosts. The home has everything you could need and even starter groceries! If you need something, Ginger and Jim are happy to lend you something or even help with a printing job! We were moving our son in to Northwestern and the location, space and comfort of this home were perfect for us. The yard is beautiful, the beds and linens very nice and comfortable. Can’t say enough positives. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Ginger and Jim’s clean and comfortable home. Ginger and Jim have truly gone above and beyond, anticipating every need a potential guest may have, from blackout shades to a grocery cart to essentials for families with young children. They were easy to communicate with and always friendly and helpful. Not only is their home cozy and spotless, the surrounding neighborhood is lovely. Even exploring their stunning garden was a treat. We look forward to a return visit!

Jim and Ginger were the perfect host. They lived in the back of the house while the airbnb is in the front. It felt very private. The house had everything that we needed for our week long stay visiting friends. We appreciated the snacks. The instructions were very clear on how to get into the home and how to operate the TV. The home was lovely. The beds were comfortable, and the place was very clean. The back garden was very nice and they obviously spend a lot of time taking care of it. We hope to be back.

This is an outstanding place. Every was what they said it would be but there were many more features and amenities than they could possible list. The garden is extraordinary. The kitchen was wonderfully equipped ... it had everything. Everything. The bed was comfortable the bedroom spacious. Both bathrooms both were well cared for with lots of towels and good lighting. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet. With a car everything we needed in the way of daily shopping was less than 5 minutes away. If you are a very confident bicyclist, the shops are within bicycling distance. On the whole this place was BY FAR the most thoughtfully provisioned and tastefully furnished we have ever had in our affordable range. We hope to stay there again. I am sure we will.

We came in for a long weekend for our son’s graduation from Northwestern. 5 -7 minute drive from campus. Hosts were always reachable/ responsive within moments. We requested early check in and check out and they were so kind as to accommodate us. Home was roomy, clean, had all the amenities one could ask for and then some!!! Would not hesitate to recommend a stay here. Only regret is not having considered a stay earlier in our visits to Northwestern in the prior 4 years. Ginger and Jim thanks for making us feel so at home and for making our graduation weekend so memorable!! RegardsEli and Jen
