  • It's ALL About the LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION for Our Stay! Just Perfect!

    "We stayed at the Charming Condo for 5 weeks! We could not ask for a more Perfect Location! We loved waking up every morning to the wonderful sight of Lake Michigan. What a Fabulous View! This Condo is centrally located to where we needed to be during our stay. You can walk to just about everywhere Chicago is well known for, shopping, restaurants and museums and there is a bus stop right in front of the building that will directly take you to Millennium Park. Susann was exceptionally helpful and accommodating. Thank you Susann for a lovely stay and we will be back, hopefully next summer!"

  • Chief Ladybug

    "We had a fabulous mini family reunion due in large part to this great condo. The younger folks loved the zoo and Oz Park .... the older people loved all the great dining options in easy walking distance. Having a washer/dryer in the unit made it possible to pack light. Also we appreciated a PAC N PLAY being available as well as a crib. I would recommend it in a heart beat for a family group or gal pals on a getaway. We shopped for groceries and take out locally and found everything we needed. Our last night we dined at the local Indian Grill. It was great!"

  • 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."
