Katherine graciously rented her home to my family and I (two parents, two kids under 6) for the summer of 2008. Her home is lovely - a key highlight for us was a wonderful backyard with a fantastic, ever providing garden and an easy-light grill, perfect for evening barbeques. For families, it's within 4 blocks of a park as well. Katherine was an extremely accommodating, easy-to-work-with owner, and we enjoyed the neighbors, the enriching Evanston community, and some peace and sanity at a time in our lives when we very much needed it. We lived there for 3 months and saw the change of season from summer to autumn, and the house was very comfortable in both seasons. I highly recommend both the house and Katherine!

I rented Katherine’s house two summers ago for a month long stay with my family. Our son was 4 year old - and she was more than accommodating. The house was clean, inviting, all the amenities where there, we had fresh vegetables from her garden, and our son loved running in the sprinkler in her back yard. (We had many nice family BBQ’s in the back yard as well ) She was very flexible when making the arrangements and we all felt very comfortable and welcomed in her home!
