"I booked this unit for a 30th birthday weekend getaway. We had (7) people total - (3) couples and (1) additional person. This unit was perfect for us!
- Location: This unit is walking distance to Wrigley Field and Wrigleyville which has great restaurants and bars. Around the corner is a bunch of great restaurants, and one block away is the Belmont CTA stop which will get you on the Red Line and is a straight shot into downtown if you need to get there. It's a quiet neighborhood but around the corner is great nightlife if that's what you're looking for.
- Accommodations: There were (3) bedrooms - each one had a comfortable full size bed with a closet. There was a living area with a couch (not a sleeper sofa), a dining table with (6) chairs and a full kitchen fully stocked with plates, cups, silverware, and basic cooking utencils. (2) full bathrooms, plenty of towels, and a hair dryer! Iron and ironing board were there as well. If you need the sleeper sofa, I would just make sure to clarify that when making your reservation. There are two units in the same building, so maybe the other one has the sleeper sofa?
- Parking: Parking is free on the street and there are residential parking passes provided with the unit (required for street parking). The only downside is that parking may be hard to find - one person drove around for 45 minutes looking for parking. It should be noted that we had (3) cars with our group and we stayed over a very busy weekend (St. Patrick's Day + NCAA BBall Tournament).
- Customer Service: Dan was great to work with! He responded to my emails within 1 - 2 business days and most of the time it was within 24 hours.
Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a "home away from home" while in Chicago!"

"Nice simple rental in a really great location. Downstairs is a smal little living with 2 couches, one of which is a pull out if needed. A room with a queen bed, and the only closet in the entire place but the room isn't closed off by a door. Additionally downstairs is a small kitchen and a small private bedroom with its own door. Upstairs is a big living space with 2 love seat type coaches, one full bed and one king bed with a bathroom. We only really have a two complaints, firstly THE BEDS! they are quite possibly the most horribly old beds. I swear we all will need to see a chiropractor after our stay. Second, since there is only one closet, it would have been nice to have some more hangers and more room to be able to hang clothes up in the closet. Other than that though, it's a perfectly good rental for a stay in Chicago. We had 6 people which was perfect. The owner and property manager were really accommodating and helpful. Parking passes are also given so you can park your car on the side streets over night. Nice TV's. I would recommend especially if the owner ever gets newer, more comfortable mattresses."

"What a gorgeous home. The location is awesome and there is so much to do in this lil area. We spent our families vacation here and had a couple of family birthdays. My grand kids loved it and the adults also had a good time. The boat slip was as added plus. thanks for sharing your lovely home. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. There is a mama deer and her twins that came down for a drink every night at dusk. The wild life are not at all afraid to share there home. Bob and Julie made the arrangements and entry to the home very easy. And if there was a problem they kept in touch. Awesome service
It was an awesome vacation for my family. thank you"

EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATIONS IN CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
"Wow, wow, wow, are all the words and more that I would use to describe this wonderful, conveniently located, oh so super clean condo in River City. Everything you could ask for and more was available to my husband and I for our 5 day stay in Chicago. Bill the owner of this condo was so easy to deal with from start to finish. I have rented many condos and accommodations through VRBO but this was by far the best interaction I have ever had. When I return to Chicago, which will be sooner rather than later as I loved everything Chicago has to offer, I will definetely stay at Bill's condo once again. Thank you so much Bill for making our stay in Chicago such a memorable experience.
Karen and Doug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
