  • Great place to stay, within walking distance to almost everything

    "This condo is great place to stay. The complex is very quiet and secure. The roof top deck is great, and let's you see much of the city and the river below. The owner, Bill, has excellent communication. He will make sure you have everything you need, and give you some great places to dine while visiting. Hackney's is just a few blocks away and has delicious burgers. I give this place 5 stars because I had no complaints. It has everything you need, and was very affordable compared to other lodging in the South Loop area. Thanks Bill! We will definitely stay again : )"

  • FABULOUS!!

    "We would wholeheartedly recommend this absolutely fantastic condo!! It was truly a home away from home and made what could have been a really exhausting trip a super easy and relaxing stay for all of us, including our 2 year old and our elderly parents. Nadiya was very responsive and helpful and we couldn't have asked for a better hostess. The condo was clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable and was in a great location for us as all the major Chicago attractions are all within walking distance, not to mention the restaurants, boutiques, shops and supermarkets nearby. I don't remember enjoying Chicago this much in the past but by the end of our trip we were already planning our next trip back. Thanks Nadiya!!"

  • Perfect for Us

    "Thank you to our hosts, Tracy and Raphael! We are new to VRBO and staying at The Casa for a week provided us with a wonderful introduction to Chicago. We were looking for a neighborhood experience while also being close enough to the big city attractions of downtown. Taking the train from O'Hare was easy and just a short walk to Little Italy and The Casa. Our hosts created a warm, welcoming environment and the condo itself was charming and accurately represented in the photo and descriptions. We loved being able to shop for fresh ingredients from Little Italy, while the hot tub soothed tired muscles after long, delightful days of walking. We also enjoyed trying out several of the nearby restaurants as well as visiting local parks and wandering the charming neighborhood streets. We are pleased to highly recommend the Casa and will be sharing this listing with others who are planning a trip to Chicago."
