  • Great girls getaway!

    "My girlfriends and I rented this place for my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. It was perfect for the 6 of us. Location is ideal, and the home was nicely maintained. The owner (Ed) went above and beyond to make sure we had details about Galena, where to go and what to see. He was very quick to answer all our questions and made sure that we had a memorable experience. He also included access to the owner's club where we could use the pools etc in his fee. He also doesn't charge an extra cleaning fee, making this one of the most affordable units around. This unit is at the end of the street, so it's very quiet and peaceful. The back yard was amazing!!!"

  • Cozy Apartment, Fantastic Location, Riot Fest Weekend

    "You always wish you can find owners like Marta and Jason. Their cozy apartment was perfect for my group of 4 that was in town for Riot Fest. The apartment is clean and stocked with just about anything you would expect to find in your own place. They even provide some breakfast foods to get your visit started. We actually arrived with a small cold front, but the apartment easily keeps you warm at night. The shower was always hot, the WiFi was always strong, and the owners were always friendly. Marta and Jason live on the property and made themselves available for any questions and requests. I've been to Chicago quite a few times, and this is by far, the best neighborhood I've stayed in. We always felt safe and everything is only a few minutes away. We ventured without a car, which was fine, because you have a Blue line stop 5 minutes away, and multiple, convenient buses nearby. Our group really took advantage of the great eats in the surrounding area of Wicker Park. Some recommendations nearby: Las Palmas (Mexican), Max's Wine Dive (American), and of course, our daily stop at Stan's Donuts & Coffee (Amazing). The 72 bus got us to and from Riot Fest at Humboldt Park everyday and night from the festival. If for some reason, you're to lazy at night to use a CTA option, there always seems to be multiple Uber drivers in the area. Chicago is a fantastic city. But when you're staying in a great little place like this, in a location you can't beat, the experience is only enhanced that much more. Without hesitation, I would stay here again."

  • 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."

  • Nicole ROCKS!

    "We have used VRBO for 10 years and found Nicole to be the best communicator ever! Every detail was taken care of and she was such a pleasure to work with. The condo is stunning and in a perfect location especially for tourists. The beds were very comfortable including the pull-out couch air mattress. It's clean, tastefully decorated, and very roomy (HUGE walk in closet) for a one bedroom! We will be back!!"
