We live on the Northwest side in Chicago. Family friendly neighborhood, very safe and nice area. Close to shopping, restaurants and transportation.
There is free WiFi and laundry facilities. I have 4 children and 3 are married. My youngest Brittany lives on her own now she is a Registered Nurse in the hospital.
I have been hosting female guests for over 12 yrs and have had over 120 students in my home, I really enjoy it. There are no pets or men in the home.
There is a great yard with garden which you can sit out an enjoy the Chicago weather(when it isn't cold, if it cold and snow you can make snow angels).
I love to learn about different cultures and teach you about me.

Our house is located in a family friendly, safe neighborhood. Very close to shopping and public transportation. There are many restaurants, a gym and park very close to our home.
I am a student from Saudi Arabia and have been staying with Darlene for 7 months and have extended my stay. She is very nice, friendly and treats everyone like family. This was my first time in the US and I was very nervous but she helped with me with everything I needed. The house is located close to transportation and shopping. Her house is very clean and the bedrooms are great. I highly recommend staying at Darlene’s house.
I had a great time staying with you. This was my first homestay. It was a great experience and more. Comfortable, clean, feels like Just like home from home.
Other guests are respectful and quiet. I feel safe while I am there. The house is decorated nicely. It’s in a great location close to the bus and train station that takes you from downtown Chicago. The room was very elegant and I appreciate the neatness of the entire house.
Look forward to meeting you again.
We choose the best place for our stay in Chicago. Darlene is the best hostess, always ready to help us and give correct directions to move around Chicago.
Every time I return , it Will definitely be at Darlene"s house
I stayed in Darlenes house for 6 nights and it was so so so wonderful. She is so lovely, kind, funny and just amazing. I felt very compfortable and welcome in her house. This was quite busy because there were some other girls who stayed there at the same time. We all had some chats at dinner or breakfast, which was really nice. The room, shared bathroom and kitchen is everything you need. When I am back in Chicago one day, I will definitly stay again in Darlenes house if it's possible. She is an adorable lady who cares a lot about her guests. You will love it!
Also you can get into downtown Chicago very easy. So that will be your perfect stay!
Darlene was so nice and friendly!! I also really like the room that was so nice, clean and private. I am pleased with staying there.
I had a great homestay with Darlene. She was very friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious, and had everything you could need, including access to laundry facilities. The house is close to the bus and train station that takes you from the airport and into downtown Chicago. Overall, a fantastic place to stay, where you feel right at home. I would definitely recommend.
A great trip friendly host lots of living space easy access to room. Close to the train station, so down town only 45 min walk+train ride away. All around couldn't be better.
