Wonderful hosts, they have thought of everything you will need. Their house manual has not just the specifics for the house but also info on the surrounding area.
Very comfortable and well-equipped place. My stay was perfect.
Ginger and Jim went above and beyond for our stay.
They greeted us, left a bottle of wine, snacks, pizza and a guide in the home with everything we needed. The home was sparkling clean and homey as well. On top of all of that, I had run the Chicago marathon the day before and they donated the cost of the Airbnb to the charity I ran for- completely unexpected and so very nice. I hope to see Ginger and Jim again!
We loved our stay in Evanston.
The space was super clean and very well decorated. The beautiful original paintings were a lovely touch. We felt very safe and comfortable. Everything we needed was available to us and easy to find. The location was excellent and walking through Ginger and Jim‘s gardens was great fun. Thank you! Hope to stay again soon.
Best amenities of any Airbnb I've stayed in.
Very thoughtful touches. Would highly recommend!
Evanston Main Street Highlights
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ginger and Jim’s rental. We booked 6 months in advance so we had the benefit of being mailed a beautiful and complete House Manual with pictures and passwords and the historical reference of the house. We enjoyed off the street parking, walking through the fairy light lit gardens which is like a mini botanical gardens. Both bedrooms are on the top floor with windows on to the street. I travel for business so I always bring earplugs which worked here too 🙂 Not a great deal of traffic on the weekends or weekday just we live in the sticks at the end of a cul-de-sac with no traffic. Loved the Giordano’s Pizza delivery, and the Valli’s supermarket. Not so much the 7-11 which was the nearest convenience store (but was not recommended) our slip up. We will be back I’m sure over the next years while our student is in college. Thanks for all the comfortable furniture and details. This home was better equipped than our house 🙂
Awesome place to stay
Wonderfully kept, very clean, in a beautiful neighborhood with easy access to shopping areas. Ginger and Jim left a vase of flowers in the kitchen for my birthday and made everything super easy, including supplying basic food staples and ample cookware for the kitchen. All instructions for plumbing/tv/kitchen/etc were clear and easy to follow. My parents had a great time visiting!
You should stay here!
Our group had a wonderful time here while attending a nearby conference. I only wish I had spent more time at the house--it is a beautiful place to stay.
Best Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in.
First of all The hosts are amazing! They respond almost instantaneously and have the entire place purpose-built for guests. They have waters and juices and coffee and so many other nice little touches like J&J baby shampoo and bath wash and other toiletries. There were even toys and a crib. They had a noise machine in the bedroom that helped my kids sleep. The mattresses are very comfortable and the entire place is filled with cool art that makes you feel like you are in a home not a hotel. Also the walk to either the elevated train or the Metra commuter rail is really easy. My husband and I easily commuted to work and even passed by some cool coffee shops on the way to the train. It’s a great area. We were able to park our SUV in the back alley and go through the garden. Our two kids loved Ginger’s secret garden - complete with a boardwalk and garden sculptures.
I can’t think of another place to stay that would be better than this Airbnb. The owners make you feel so special with all the little details they have thought of. I will never stay in the area again without considering them first. Thank you Ginger/Jim for putting something so special together for travelers.
