  • Great location!!

    "I stayed at this condo with a group of my girlfriends and it was great!! The location is perfect!! The street is quiet and not busy, so parking was not a problem, but it is also just a block away from Belmont, which makes it easy to catch a cab, shop, eat, drink, etc. My only major complaint would be the air conditioner. It was a little faulty and wouldn't maintain a temperature, luckily the weather was nice while we were there and the fans in the condo were great!"

  • Great property in a fun neighborhood!

    "We recently spent a wonderful weekend in Chicago. The property is in a great location - walk to amazing restaurants, cute neighborhood shops and walk to public transportation. The apartment is just as described if not better! The owner was great to work with. He communicated with us for our arrival with clear instructions for check-in. There was information in the apartment for restaurants and sights to see in Chicago. We have found a great place to stay for our future visits to Chicago."

  • Nice apt for short term stay

    "My husband and I rented this apartment for 2 1/2 weeks. The apartment is better suited for a stay of a couple of days rather than the longer stay we had. The kitchen was very small with little counter space for cooking, had no dishwasher, and lacked some basic kitchen tools for cooking from scratch. There was also little space to store dishes and pots and pans, which made it more difficult to cook. The other drawbacks were an small bathroom, and an uncomfortable, soft mattress. Also, I expected the apartment to be cleaned more professionally because there is a cleaning fee. Instead, there was dust and cobwebs under the furniture and the bathroom was not scoured as it should have been. That said, the owner is very nice and did try to supply items requested, and the owner did leave some food and cleaning supplies for us. The apartment is also located on a quiet street and very conveniently located to downtown Evanston, and public transportation. We were able to bike or walk downtown and to nice restaurants and Whole Foods. Being 1/2 mile from the Metra made it easy to get to downtown Chicago for some fun exploration."

  • Great place for family gathering

    "We recently rented the Birdsnest for a family gathering to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It worked out beautifully. First of all the bedrooms are on three different levels so there's plenty of separation for all. In addition the home is very well equipped and nicely decorated. If you're headed to Galena for a visit, you won't find nicer accommodations. And the owner, Steve, is great to work with."
