VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 18, 2014

What a treat it was to stay at this spacious yet cozy Chicago condo! As soon as my paw stepped inside the front door and left the hustle and bustle of the street, I felt relaxed and at home. I was greeted by the lovely woman who owns the place, Andrea. She was very helpful and hospitable and gave me some great restaurant recommendations. As she showed me around I started getting more and more excited about my stay. The master bedroom was comfortable with plenty of closet space. The attached master bathroom was well lit with a big jacuzzi bath in between his and her sinks! The two other bedrooms had plenty of space and each had a queen size bed. The second bathroom had a large double sink vanity and a great shower. As she showed me the main living area I was pleased by how spacious it felt! I was delighted by the wall-to-wall windows and large comfortable wrap around couch. All of which was overlooked by a clean, modern kitchen stocked with free coffee and tea, and good enough for any chef looking to make a meal. Each day when I went I went out to explore the city, it was a breeze to get downtown because the condo is right next to Lake Shore Drive. I had many great adventures shopping on the Magnificent Mile, sunning in Millennium Park, throwing pennies into Buckingham Fountain, walking along the lake, riding the ferris wheel at Navy Peer and so much more. But every day I looked forward to heading home, taking a hot shower in my clean bathroom and making some tea in the tea kettle before plopping down on the comfortable sofa in my Chicago oasis. Every morning I woke up so refreshed that I thought I had been hibernating! The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were quiet and peaceful, they were just right. I can't say enough good things about my experience here. It was clean, well stocked, well lit and really felt like a home away from home. I'm definitely going to stay here next time I visit the windy city. Thanks Andrea!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Great location and spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall impression – Neighborhood is easy access to Wrigley and several options for public transportation to downtown. Home is spacious and easily accommodates a group of friends or family. Andrea responds quickly to messages and is accommodating with requests.

Location – On a quiet and safe street within walking distance to Wrigley, Michigan lake shore, local restaurants, grocery, public transportation stops (bus/Red line). There is a private parking space but we did not use it. The entrance is secured by two locked double doors into a common foyer before entering the unit only a few steps to the next level.

Home - VRBO description and pictures accurately reflect the home. The space is open living/dining/kitchen concept and was ideal for our family of five (adults/young adults). There are three spacious bedrooms with queen beds and two baths. The beds were comfortable. Many large windows bring in natural light (shades for at night or to reduce hot sun/cold breezes). There is a large balcony which we didn’t use due to sub-zero temperatures. The kitchen is clean and well stocked for cooking with various size pots/pans, utensils and several sets of silverware and dishes.

This home is a great value for a stay - location, space, amenities and hostess!

Great location for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 3 couples stayed for a Xmas week at Andrea's house. The location was very convenient, especially when the temperature dropped to zero and we needed to take the bus, it is only 1/2 block to the bus stop for a ride along Lake Shore Drive to River North. The condo was very quiet at night and very spacious. We appreciated the gas fireplace (once we got the knack of turning it on), but have to note that temperature throughout the condo was uneven, some bedrooms very warm, but it was cold near the windows (not unexpected) and in the master bathroom. But all in all we enjoyed our stay, there was plenty of couch space and a big dining room table so everyone had places to relax and we could share meals together. Andrea was very responsive to our emails and checked back to make sure all was going well, and she had provided a gift of a box of chocolates for us to enjoy, which was a nice touch.

Owner's Response: Hope you made it home to Hawaii, safe and sound and rested! You are right. You braved a visit to chicago with record low temperatures! You are right that when it hits zero, in the front room, we should add a heat vent! we will look into it right away! Please come back in Spring or Summer!! Meanwhile enjoy your beautiful weather back home! All the best for 2018. Andrea

Great location, great space . . . Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Andrea was great to work with and always available for questions. The location was great for us with kids living in Evanston and some downtown. The space worked well for us. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, gadgets and pots.
