Property description

We have 2 great apartments. We have an amazing deck with an incredible skyline view of Chicago (closed in winter when there is snow and ice) and a fantastic huge hot tub. They are both great place to relax after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business. We have 7.5 years experience offering rentals and hundreds of reviews that are all 4 or 5 star.

Here are more details about our rentals.

We also have a huge 5 feet x 3.5 feet shower that features Grohe body sprays and a steambath generator. Our guests say that it is like a massage.

This site's quotable rates are often wrong. We don't have just one rate, but that is the only way that this site lets us show our rates. We set our rates the best we can, but this site only allows us to display one rate and that is not how we price our rentals. Our rates are lower per night for longer rentals and higher per night for shorter rentals or for special events such as trade shows. Depending on the season, the nightly rate shown is either our lowest rate or an average rate (4-5 nights). Our last minute special rates also have deep discounts on extra nights and this site's rate system can't do any of those things. Shorter rentals of 3 or 4 nights are sometimes going to be priced higher than what this site quotes you.

Our seasonal rates vary from $120 to $260 per night and $875 to $1,675 per week and include all taxes and fees. Our lowest rates are in winter. Rates depend on the timing and length of your stay. There is no one rate. Longer rentals have the best per night rates.

If this apartment is booked, or if you have a larger group, we have a second apartment in this building that may be available. If you rent both apartments, you will be renting the entire building.

Below is the ad for our first floor apartment .

http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p225815

This Apartment has 2 bedrooms and 3 queen beds and sleeps up to 6 guests. We have a huge living/entertainment room where we have a queen sleeper sofa as our 3rd queen bed The living room is at the far end of the apartment and anyone sleeping there has a lot of privacy. We also have a queen air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space. We have fully stocked modern kitchens.

PLEASE CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING. We often book up solid and very early. If this apartment is booked, our other apartment is listing number 225815

Our rentals are located just South of Downtown Chicago in the quiet and safe neighborhood of Bridgeport. It is a 10-15 minute drive or cab ride or it's a quick train ride to all of our great attractions on our great public transportation system. Ours is one of the safest neighborhoods in Chicago. 5 of our last 8 Mayors spanning 90 years came from our small neighborhood

More facts about Our Rentals: Our daily newspaper, the Chicago Sun Times recently reported that our neighborhood was voted the best place to trick or treat based on the safety and the family atmosphere of our area. This is what they had to say.

The best neighborhood for trick-or-treating in Chicago? Bridgeport, says a real estate web site that says it factored in where a kid's likely to get 'the most candy, with the least walking and minimal safety risks.'

Bridgeport gets props from Zillow dot com as 'really a family neighborhood.

Our proximity to downtown, McCormick Place , and I.I.T, has made ours a very hot residential destination for the last 10 years. One of our neighbors recently built a $2.5 million house and next door is a huge house with an indoor swimming pool in it's own addition that is now for sale for 1.7 million. New construction and completely renovated buildings like ours are the norm. Ours is a very quiet and peaceful block.

You can view a map of our location at Google Maps by typing in the following information.

529 W. 37th Street, Chicago IL 60609 When the map loads, you can click “get directions” to enter an address or “search nearby” to search for attractions.

The map is at street level, so please zoom it out a level or two and scroll north to see where we are at relative to downtown and McCormick Place. If you're coming for a show at McCormick, please let us know and we'll send information on getting there.

Baseball fans will love that we are a 5 minute walk to U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. For Cub Fans, the train runs directly between both ballparks.

We include one garage parking space with your rental. Street parking in our area is also very easy. Street parking can be tight when the White Sox are playing as we are close to the ball park, but even then, parking is easier than most areas of our city.

Our apartments are available for lodging only. We do not rent our apartments for parties or gatherings of any kind. The guest renting the apartment needs to be 30 years of age. Occasionally we will make slight exceptions on the age limit for responsible adults who are not coming here to party. Our guests appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment We also don't rent to groups of students of any age regardless of whether they are chaperoned by an adult. .

The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 people in 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes make slight adjustments on these limits with prior approval.

AN IMPORTANT NEW DEVELOPMENT CONCERNING VACATION RENTALS IN CHICAGO.

The City of Chicago has a new ordinance that regulates vacation rentals.
We are a legal vacation rental and our license number is 2074660.

Enforcement of this Ordinance has begun. Unlicensed properties can be shut down by the city and/or their condo association at any time. For these and other reasons, we recommend that you book your rental with a licensed Vacation Rental Owner.

Our cancellation policy is a $100 cancellation fee if 45 days or more from arrival, and a $250 fee from 45 to 30 days from arrival, Cancellation less than 30 days from arrival are non refundable unless we can re-rent the dates to someone else. Then we would refund whatever we get for as many of those dates as we can rent at last minute rates, minus the applicable cancellation fee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are two lifelong friends who bought this building to live in, remodeled it completely for ourselves, and later converted it to a vacation rental.

Why the Owner Chose McCormick Place:
Our area is safe and very close to everything in Chicago, including our convention center, McCormick Place. You are in a quiet and safe neighborhood, but the city center and all of our major attractions are very close. It's the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You will love our deck with the amazing view of the Chicago city skyline, our hot tub, and our huge steam bath shower with multiple Grohe Body Sprays. It is like a massage. We are ½ mile from the I-94 Dan Ryan Expressway. It is a 5 minute drive to Lake Shore Drive and another 10-15 minutes from there to the Museums, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue shopping and every major attraction in this city. When we lived in this building ourselves, we would always be able to get to the lakefront and all of our major attractions in 10 to 20 minutes. If there is a concert, or major festival on the lakefront. we can show you a local shortcut to make great travel time to our city center. Ours is a quiet, safe, and friendly family neighborhood. It’s not real trendy, but you can save a fortune on casual dining or drink prices if you want to eat locally some of the time during you visit. You can park easily too and we include garage parking with your rental. If you want to visit our 5 star restaurants or nightclubs, they are a quick 10-20 minute drive or cab ride away.
