                    We went to Chicago for our daughters wedding and stayed 4 nights. Our family is rather large so we needed something with a kitchen and laundry facilities. We had three adult children (ages 40,33,23), one married, and three grandchildren (19,14,11). My husband and I and my close friend stayed in the unit with two bedrooms. It has the washer/dryer. All had full baths and kitchens. We rented all three units, which provided privacy for all of us. There is a stairway joining all three units but there is a door for each unit that steps out to the stairway. The kids could come and go without disturbing us.We could not have selected a better place to stay. The location is safe and we were able to walk everywhere. I stayed at the Trump for my visit in June for Bridal Shower, but this location is far superior. Make sure you shop around for parking. The cost to park at the end of the street was high so we moved the vehicles next day a block or two down the street. If you leave and come back they charge you again!! We got 3 nights - for two cars - for $100.00 and we could come and go for no additional cost. Smooth trisection via email for all we needed to secure the units. Many restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Most of all we could walk the street at night and feel safe. 1/2 block to Lake Michigan! Tree lined street.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, families with teenagers.

                    This was our first experience using VRBO.com and we were very pleased. We got all the information necessary quickly and the apartment was exactly as described. For a family of four, it was just the right amount of space. The adults had the upstairs and the kids (teenager/pre-teen) had the downstairs. Lots of restaurants to walk to and all the tourist attractions are close by. Would definitely recommend this location to others.

                    We stayed here for our recent visit to watch the UW vs Illinois football game at Soldier Field. The game was an excuse to bring our kids to explore a big city. The location right next to the beach and one block from the very fun, vibrant Rush St neighborhood was perfect for our trip. Staying in a brownstone was a very fun experience for our family. The place was very charming and well equipped. The EZ bed was easy to operate and very comfy for our kids. My only suggestion would be to add a pack n play for guests with babies, as we had to pack ours on the plane. We loved this place, found it full of character, and it added to our overall experience. We would highly recommend it!

                    We could not have asked for a better location. Great restaurants and shopping so close by which was perfect since we didn't have a car. The house was clean and spacious and provided everything we needed. We wanted to use their EZ Bed but was disappointed to find it had a hole in it. Ended up using the air mattress which was fine. Wouldn't suggest using the sofa bed - the mattress is very thin and all you can feel are the springs. Only other comment I have is that the bathrooms are really small - can't get more than one person in them at a time so when you have 6 women trying to get ready for shopping or dinner, it is a bit of a challenge. Overall, we had a great time and would definately rent this unit again.

                    We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect as promised and the home had plenty of space. My only complaint is that the dryer was out of order for our stay and the air mattress had a leak so we could not use it for our son.

                    Owner response: Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review! We are overjoyed to hear you enjoyed your time in the Brownstone. We have replaced the leaking airbed with a brand new, structured, off-the-ground, EZ Bed which inflates and deflates automatically. We look forward to hosting you on your next visit to Chicago! -First Class Chicago Team

                    My family of five adults spent 7 great days in Chicago in mid-June. I loved everything about Chicago and the icing on the cake was the Brownstone we stayed in. Its such a wonderful feeling to walk out the front door into a beautiful tree lined street in one of the best of Chicago's neighborhoods. The Brownstone was comfortable, nice furnishings with plenty of room for all. We had one little problem with the washer/dryer that Tyler (the property manager) took care of immediately!!! Great Customer Service. When I go back to Chicago in the future this is where I will stay. You couldn't find a better place. Close to everything you could want. Believe what every one says about this place (including the owners). Its truly incredible!

                    Cannot beat the location of this property- close to public transportation, shopping, awesome restaurants and the beach. A few disappointments- EZ bed has leak, not enough linens or blankets to properly sleep 8 people, jets do not work in the main level bathtub, light bulb out over lower level bathroom sink (makes shaving and putting on make up difficult). These things can be easily taken care of and owner has been notified.

                    The four of us enjoyed our stay in the beautiful brownstone property on Cedar. The location was perfect for walking everywhere from Second City to the Art Institute. We were able to comfortably visit together but had privacy at the same time. The restaurants and nightclubs were right around the corner and we enjoyed several of them. Cedar is a very quiet residential street and sleeping was easy and we felt safe and right at home.

                  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!
