  • 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."

  • Wonderful baseball getaway

    "My husband, the boys and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home for a few days while catching some Yankees/Cubs baseball. The Roscoe Village location was so quaint and quiet with its tree-lined streets, not to mention the Brown line was conveniently close! We loved the restaurants for brunch that were just a block away. Kim was always accessible and very accommodating to our special requests during our stay. We especially enjoyed the experience of being together watching television or sitting on the spacious deck with no interruptions of a busy hotel. Comfortable beds plus an abundance of towels made for a homey and relaxing feel. The furniture and décor was exactly to our taste and the upscale kitchen is fantastic if planning to cook and congregate there. Most important to us, was a washer/dryer on-site to launder our clothes after getting soaked while walking back after a ballgame. I usually have good luck with VRBO and this fantastic experience will keep me coming back!"

  • The Perfect Weekend

    "Arrived to find the house clean and well cared for. Ample sleeping areas in the lower level. The upstairs is absolutely perfect for family and/or friends gatherings. Loved the breathtaking views from the deck. The open concept in the upper level was perfect for cooking, dining and having fun as a group. Beautiful stone fireplace in the Living Room. We will definitely be back."

  • A Great Guesthouse in a Super Neighborhood

    "This was our first experience staying in a vrbo and I don't think I could ever be as lucky again. I was not familiar with Roscoe Village, but wanted to stay in a neighborhood rather than a downtown hotel. The location couldn't be more perfect. We had a car, and I was concerned about parking, but after reading other reviews I decided to try this condo, and parking was never a problem. There are a number of great small restaurants and a super grocery store within walking distance. It's a family neighborhood and we felt safe walking around at night. The condo itself was spotless! It's newly built and the kitchen and front room are very spacious. The 3 bedrooms are very comfortable (great furniture, linens, and towels) and are removed from the living area so those who want to retire early or sleep in are not disturbed. The kitchen is fully stocked. We had small grandchildren with us, and the condo even had children's dinnerware, utensils, glasses, puzzles, and games. We spent a week in #422128 and truly appreciated Rick meeting us upon arrival, and accomodating our wishes to stay another day. I really liked dealing with the owner, and Rick made sure everything was ready upon arrival. We will return to this condo when we visit Chicago again. It's a gem!"
