  • Home Away from Home for Good Family Time

    "Excellent location and safe, well-heeled neighborhood. Plenty of good restaurants and night life just around the corner. Walk to everything--Magnificent Mile stores, beach, downtown (about 30-40 minutes), Lincoln Park, Old Town. Easy to grab a taxi at the end of the block for more distant travels. Several blocks (10-15 minutes) to nearest metro Red Line and nearest grocery store to buy coffee and breakfast foods; two blocks to a CVS drug store. Apartment clean; kitchen well-stocked. Bathrooms have new tile and fixtures; kitchen counters and appliances looked new as well. Bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchen large and spacious. A couple reading chairs on lower level would have been nice as alternative seating to straight kitchen-table chairs. Bathrooms very small, but typical of Chicago urban living. Plenty of nice, thick, fluffy bath towels. Tumbled marble tile in bathroom on lower level already showing much mold/mildew. Hardwood floors in kitchen need refinishing; wood trim around doors/closets needs painting. Still, apartment quite comfortable and neat but décor and amenities not luxurious. (Think young professional's apartment vs. Ritz Carlton or Chateau Relais hotels.) Small things like Kleenex in the tissue boxes, tourist info brochures, and a few magazines or books would have added to comfort. On-line reservations, exchange of contractual documents, and email correspondence were simple and efficient. Everything worked like a charm. My husband and I stayed for five nights along with my 33-year old son and daughter-in-law. Having bedrooms on different levels (one up and one down) gave us privacy. It was so much better than staying in a hotel since we could enjoy good family time with the feel of being "at home." A delightful visit to Chicago."

  • Good but could be Great

    "This Old Town apartment was spacious; light-filled; clean; in a quiet, upscale, secure neighbourhood a short walkto the Sedgewick El stop; and had many cafes and restaurants within walking distance on Wells Street. It was well-stocked with all the basic cooking supplies and the Jewel Grocery store was very close. Three improvements that would lift this property from a good VRBO one to an excellent one: a badly-needed new mattress; and a general bathroom overhaul to improve the unsightly tub and the low lighting. Finally, better, more timely communication with the owner prior to and upon arrival. It would also be useful if more information on where to go in the neighbourhood and Chicago in general, was on hand to help new visitors get oriented."

  • AMAZING, WE WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK!

    "We just came back from Chicago. We wanted to thank the owners and the staff for your assistance. We had a great time. All the info that was provided made it easy to maneuver through the city. The condo was very impressive and our friends from overseas had an excellent time. You helped me over-deliver in a big way! We will definitely recommend your property to our friends, and hopefully we will come back soon!"

  • Perfect for exploring Chicago!

    "My wife and I stayed here for five days along with another couple from Australia during September. The Accommodations were as advertised, clean, very comfortable and complete. The Old Town neighborhood was very nice, and the El station was within easy walking distance; only a few stops from downtown. We enjoyed a show at nearby second city and also a great dinner in a nearby pub. The owners were very good to work with, and graciously allowed us late check-out since our Amtrak departure was late in the day. We are definitely coming back for further Chicago adventures. Make sure to take the downtown architectural cruise on the Chicago River.... excellent."
