We absolutely loved the Monroe house . This place is like a home away from home. J&J are so kind and sweet, so gracious. We traveled every day into Chicago and took the Blue line. Very easy get there I would absolutely recommend this location. This is by far the best place we've stayed hands down.

Our family very much enjoyed Jordan & Jeremy's place. It was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Jordan and Jeremy stayed in touch throughout the stay, though we never met in person. Located in Forest Park, the location isn't too far from the center of Chicago, though you still have to plan around traffic to get around. The neighborhood is clean and quiet, and you are not too far from many Frank Lloyd Wright historical homes. We would definately stay there again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and it is very spacious, a great place to bring children! It's close to everything you need and the metro is an 8 minute walk away which gets you to downtown in about 30mins. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Chicago.

We absolutely would recommend this house! Modern but very very livable. The bedding, blankets and couch were yummy, we spent an afternoon watching football on the couch, something we rarely do at home. Location was great, 5 minute walk to subway station that took us into the city with no traffic, also many cute restaurants and bars within 5 minute walk.

Jordan & Jeremy's place is great! The location is fantastic. It was very clean and well appointed and the personal touches were very welcome and made us feel at home. We couldn't recommend them more and plan to do so to family and friends.

Wow. What a great property! Full disclosure: I'm a local resident and I reserved this property for my family who came in for our daughter's wedding. I didn't stay at the property but I visited often. You can't find a cleaner, well-managed, convenient place than this. Close to restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment, transportation (highway, train, bus, bike, foot...), history (Frank Lloyd Wright's Home and Studio is only 2mi away): this is the place to be. Over the past year I've seen the property undergo rehabilitation and the results are great. My step-mother, a designer by trade, was over the top with the way the property looked! It is spacious and comfortable. Jordan and Jeremy were very responsive to our questions and everything was a smooth as gravy... Thanks to the two of you for making this a great stay for my family!

We had a wonderful time. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and equipped with all conveniences. Jordan and Jeremy are friendly and accessible, and were very helpful. We would love to come back.

About Jordan & Jeremy

My husband and I bought the Loft November of 2011, and ever since we turned the key it has been a labor of love. Self described property and construction enthusiasts, we remodeled everything ourselves, except for a few key pieces, which warranted a strict learning curve. The Monroe house is our next project, a two flat, and we hope to enjoy hosting there as much as we have at the Loft!
