  • Great Get-a-way!

    "The house was quaint & perfect for our weekend get-a-way! We loved the location, quiet, peaceful, and restful. The house was clean and well stocked with towels & kitchen items. We loved the breakfast food that Lee left for us in the fridge. The owner was great at communicating prior to our arrival & was very accommodating. Loved that we could bring the dogs on the trip!!! We cannot wait to go back!"

  • Perfect for an executive family relocating.

    "Our family of 4 was relocating to the Chicago area and we needed a place that was fully furnished and could accommodate us while we house hunted. The listing description is accurate. The furnishings are beautiful and the space is professionally decorated. This is, by far, the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a rental! It was a perfect fit for us and exceeded our expectations. The proximity to everything is great. Walking distance to the train station, library, post office, shopping, and dining. The owners are wonderful!! They were in touch with me as soon as I contacted them. They were helpful and provided lots of information before and during our stay. We moved in the end of December and enjoyed it so much we stayed until the middle of April. If you are looking for an upscale rental in a great community this place is for you. Thank you for a great stay!"

  • 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."

  • Perfect Anniversary Getaway

    "My wife and I recently stayed in Jodi's wonderful condo for our 2 year anniversary. We felt the condo was in a great location, close to downtown Galena yet still had the resort "ish" feel as there were tons of amenities available to us. Although this was our first trip to Galena I definitely feel we will be back and looking forward to renting Jodi's condo."
