                    We came to Chicago with many family members for our daughter's wedding. This home was in a nice location and close enough to Logan Square where our daughter lives. The house is well appointed with all the amenities of a family home. A couple of the mattresses were a little worn but all in all it was an unbeatable house at a very reasonable price.

                    We found the house to be as exactly as described. It was located in a very lovely suburb,minutes from the major highways. It was clean and very well furnished. the large backyard and decks added to the ambiance. Rooms were a good size with comfortable beds. Kitchen was large and provided ample sitting area. Only slight negative was the noise from the overhead planes (which after awhile you got used to it) and the traffic on I-90 if you are driving.

                    Very happy with this rental. Three families rented the house for the Chicago Marathon. We used the L Train as our mode of transportation and it worked great for us. The house was clean and comfortable. Nice amenity was the washer and dryer. Would be happy to rent this property again.

                    This was a perfect place for a crowd. Much roomier than expected - the pics do not convey how large the house is. Easy access to transport - takes about 40 minutes to get downtown. House very clean on arrival. Owner of the house was not the easiest to get hold of via email, but did return all my phone calls. Neighborhood very nice and I would recommend this house to friends and family.

                    There was plenty of room for our group of 11 in this comfortable home. The open kitchen and family room were great spaces for everyone to congregate. There were lots of comfortable seating. We even managed to fit all of us around the dining room table for a sit-down meal. The neighbourhood was beautiful. We felt very safe taking the train back from the theatre district and from Wrigley field even late at night. Walking at a leisurely pace, it took about an hour for us to get from the house to the Chicago Art Institute on the Blue line train. Overall, we had a great stay, but I agree with the previous reviewer, some minor fixes would have made our stay a bit more comfortable. Having the oven door close without having to use a chair would have saved us from having to lean over the chair to reach the pan on the range! Thanks Matt for sharing your lovely house.

                    Our group of seven women friends from grade school got together 40+ years later in this wonderful house. The house is very large we were able to spread out for privacy when we wanted without even hearing each other. We loved the kitchen opening to the family room and spent most of our together time there. Everyone loved the house and the quiet, safe neighborhood. We enjoyed just walking around the neighborhood, looking at all the different houses. The train is an easy walk away and is quick to get downtown. We had a wonderful weekend!

                    This house is a lot bigger that it looks. We were surprised how roomy it was for our group of ten. Six adults and four kids. Well furnished and equipped with most everything you need. Beautiful woodwork and tastefully updated. It was perfectly located to suit our needs. Sixteen miles from downtown and only 4 miles from Zanie's Comedy Club in Rosemont. The neighborhood is beautiful and we felt safe too. We enjoyed the backyard grilling/patio. Did seem to lack in supplies such as paper products, dish sponge, dishes and utensils. DVD player didn't work and the oven door does not close tight. We propped a chair in front while using it. Shower door upstairs wasn't functioning and my daughter needed assistance getting out. Just minor things. We would absolutely do it again. Matt is very pleasant and easy to work with.

                    What a great way to celebrate with family in this house! It doesn't have a feel of a vacation rental, it's more like "coming home". The owner is very nice, and we LOVE the big kitchen which opens up to the family room and dining area. We used the formal dining room once. Rooms are spacious and outside patio is great for grilling . This place is perfect for families - we make beautiful memories in this home. Thank you, Matt!

                    After staying in this well appointed family home, you will never want to stay in a hotel or motel again. We can validate everything that was said in the previous reviews. It was a pleasure to hold a Christmas Day family reunion here. It is centrally located and handy to expressways so the gathering of the Clan was easy. Everyone agreed that we should plan to have our holiday celebration here again next Christmas.

                  Year Purchased: 1977

                  About the owner: This has been our Family house since 1978. It started as a typical brick bungalow with just two bedrooms and one bathroom. In 2000, our home underwent a major reconstruction which completely rearranged the layout, giving it an open floor plan. The 'Circle' is a close knit neighborhood and just about all of the neighbors have been there as long as we have. We have been renting the house on a vacation rental basis since 2010 and its been a great experience. We have met many nice and interesting people.
