  • Wonderfully quaint and comfortable place to stay!

    "We recently stayed at Casita Reva to move my daughter into her dorm at Northwestern as a freshman. The location was perfect. We loved the quirky decor of the casita and all of our needs were met. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bed, comfortable, the cable TV boasts lots of channels and we were even able to do my daughter's first load of wash for her! We would definitely stay here again, several yummy restaurants were within easy walking distance as well as a bakery for breakfasts. Next time, I may make my daughter's favorite, spaghetti, in the fully stocked kitchen, for a home-cooked meal for my girl from Texas. The owners of the property live on site and were very helpful in supplying tools, bungee cords, etc., to help with our move into the dorm. We also enjoyed a glass of wine and getting to know them, our last evening in Evanston. I see no reason to stay anywhere else!"

  • Nice location

    "Their were a lot of pluses included in this spacious home. If you are looking for a private place for a group of twelve or more this is the place to go. Six bedrooms with private bath. Nice dining area with kitchen. No crockpot and oven was not clean otherwise you should have what you need. Beds were very comfortable and if you need more towels you had use of washer and dryer. I recommend the owners supply pump soap in kitchen for guest.Bar soap while preparing meals not very sanitary. We had planned to go into Galena for dinner out but we enjoyed the property and the lovely dining/kitchen area so much we decided to stay and use the grill and outdoor kitchen area."
