  • 2138 Roscoe Condo

    "This was our first expereince with VRBO properties and I must say that it was wonderful. The purpose of this trip to Chicago was to celebrate our daughters graduation. Six of us were able to stay very comfortably in the property. It was spotless and very well appointed. Our family loves to cook and socialize with one another, so the condo was a perfect gathering spot for this. The floor plan was great. Those that wanted to retire early, could retreat to the bedrooms which are located well away from the dining and living area, and not be bothered by the "night owls" in our group. This is by far the quietest property that I have stayed at in Chicago. The property owner was very helpful with both the details of the condo as well as information about local spots. I would definately recommend this property to friends and will use it again myself when the need arises. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us!"

  • 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!!!"
