Chad's homestay facility was impeccably clean and thoughtfully appointed. Coffee and fruit were a nice touch and every need we had was anticipated....ranging from bathroom amenities to bedroom comforts. We have already recommended Chad to other potential visitors to Oak Park.
Chad is a great host and has a lovely family around him. The house is located conveniently between two train lines and is clean with a lovely little garden in the back.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
The food was very good, especially the hot dogs. Host family was very nice and they took me to many places. The room was very good. Drinking with host father was very fun--he give me a lot of beers. I highly recommend this family.
