Don't listen to us!...SEE WHAT PREVIOUS GUESTS HAVE TO SAY about our home and more importantly, our service, responsiveness, flexibility, and integrity! We also encourage you to view the guest books of our other established properties (VRBO #'s 115555 and 73121). These are available for stays of 30 days or more.

We wanted to let everyone know that the City of Chicago's new vacation rental ordinance now prohibits owners from renting their home as a vacation home without a license!

We are very happy and proud to announce that we are one of the very few in the city of Chicago that have obtained the required Vacation Rental License. This will allow us to continue offering out of town folks the experience of living like a local Chicagoan!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Mark and Ashley are a husband and wife team that have one foot planted firmly in Chicago. As a former Chicago resident for 10 years, Ashley has both friends and family in Chicago. We have twins who love to visit their home in Chicago! They both know that Dad's favorite building is the Hancock.

Why the Owner Chose Gold Coast:
There is only one Gold Coast in Chicago and this historical building is in the heart of it. Our endeavor started out with simply wanting a place to stay when we would visit and eventually use in retirement. We love Chicago and all the City has to offer...from great food, to world class shopping, to museums, architecture, sports, beaches...you name it and Chicago has it all.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The location cannot be beat. Chicago's epicenter for nightlife is at the end of the block with fabulous restaurants like Gibson's, Tavern On Rush, Morton's, etc. coming together in a perfect triangular parklike setting. If you want to feel like a true Chicago resident in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Chicago, this is the place. The tree-lined street is a perfect prelude to your arrival at this historical building. Shopping on Michigan Avenue is just a block away as well. It's an AMAZING location!
