  • Student Group

    "We had a great time staying at this vacation rental. It's a beautiful home, with beautiful views right on the Fox Valley River. I brought a team of 6 students for a weekend retreat, and we all loved it! We were here in the middle of January, so it was cold, snowy, and frozen outside but warm and cozy inside. We even went for a walk in the snow on a path not far from the house that went along the river. I mostly chatted with Olga throughout our time there, and she was very helpful with any questions that came up during our stay."

  • A Perfect Getaway

    "We have rented many homes on VRBO in the US and none have been the quality of this Galena home! Everything was top notch- the linens, kitchen utensils, furnishings, etc! We had 10 of us staying there and we had more than enough room to accomodate us. The house is in perfect location for a short drive to Chestnut Ski Hill and to downtown. The surroundings were beautiful! We were sad we only got to stay for two nights and can't wait to come back!"

  • Great place to stay!

    "We loved staying at Casita Reva! It was so comfortable and welcoming. The area is great; lots of fun shops to visit within walking distance. Close to Northwestern U. too and easy to hop on the "L" and go into Chicago. Only stressful part was the very narrow parking spot..."

  • Fantastic rental, fantastic location, fantastic everything!

    "We have recently arrived home after a wonderful 5 week stay at the Yellow Cottage, and I can honestly say that it was everything we needed and more! We were in Oak Park for our daughter to receive some medical treatment at Caring Medical on Lake Street. As we needed to be close by, we selected the Yellow Cottage after reading previous reviews, as we did not know the area at all. It was certainly the right choice! A perfect home from home, as it was in a good residential area, so we felt safe, but also had access to local shops and downtown Oak Park was only a short car ride away. Importantly, it was just a mile away from the clinic, and this helped with the logistics of our stay too. The cottage was well equipped and was perfect for us. The garage for the car was a great asset, as cars need to cleared off the street overnight. When we did manage to venture into Chicago itself, this was simply a case of walking to the Blue Line train station, about 8 mins away. From here you can buy a $10 24 hours unlimited use train ticket, and it's then an easy 20 min ride into Chicago. I would not hesitate to recommend the Yellow Cottage, as it's a perfect base. From the beginning of the whole process, from booking, to access to the house on arrival, right through to departure, it was so easy. We were very fortunate to have the owners next door, and as we were there for a considerable time, we were able to meet them..and what a charming family! Thank you Lara and your fantastic family for making us feel so welcome so far from home! We are already planning our next trip to Chicago and will definately stay at the Yellow Cottage, and our fear is the same as other reviewers...better book early, as it will be unavailable!"
