"We are an extended family of 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren--a total of 12. This property seems to be unique among Chicago rentals. Others claimed they would sleep 14 with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. This property has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a large finished basement with 2 queen mattresses--it accommodated us very comfortably. it was clean and nicely decorated. We stayed 5 nights and bought City Passes. We went to the Field Museum, Museum of Science and Industry, Willis Tower, Art Museum, Millennium Park, Adler Planetarium and a Cubs game. The house location was perfect--in a safe neighborhood with great parking and just a short drive to downtown. We loved pizza at Dues and 2 dinners in nearby Chinatown, especially at Minchen . Thank you Vaida for sharing your lovely house with us. I would definitely recommend this property!"

"Our family of five absolutely loved our time in this great penthouse. We parked our car the day we arrived, and didn't use it again until we left. Michigan Avenue is only steps away, and Navy Peir, the Art Institute and Millennium park are an easy 15 minute walk.
We had plenty of room, great views, and loved the convenience of the grocery store downstairs. The Fitness Centre and pool were very well equipped. The kitchen is very well-equipped, but with all of the great restaurants so close by, we didn't use it as much as we would have if we had stayed longer. One must do is to visit Eataly, which is a great restaurant/grocery store a block away where you can get all you need for a great meal in the apartment.
The owners were great to deal with, and have everything streamlined and easy. They went out of their way to help us when we made an error with our travel documents so that our holiday proceeded smoothly.
All in all, there is no doubt that thismis a great place to stay for those who want easy access to the downtown Chicago life."

"We stayed in this charming home for 5 days and found it to be as good as earlier ratings said it is. Galena is an interesting and fun place to visit with lots to do from historical venues to quaint shops to good restaurants. The best part, though, was the cabin itself. There were two couples in our party and the configuration of the unit maximized privacy and gave everyone plenty of space to spread out. It was cozy at the same time - no mean feat. A+ Rentals were great agents, responsive to our inquiries and to a request for assistance. All 4 of us agree that it was a great place to stay in the fall (beautiful color) and would be a great place in the summer with all of the amenities available in The Galena Territory and Eagle Ridge. We plan to return."

"Hi all...it's us again, the Black Alumni Group reunion guests! Once again, our stay exceeded our expectations. Since our last stay, Paul has made a few upgrades and our stay was better as a result. All he needs to do is add a BBQ grill and the place is a great alternative to home. I can't say enough about how enjoyable our stay was as well as how great the owners, Paul and Theresa, are.
Don't second guess staying here...it's definitely worth it!
Thanks Paul and Theresa for another great stay during the BAG Reunion weekend!
Lisa, Joyce, Lisa and Percy"
