Property description

We have 2 beautiful apartments that are a great value. We have 8 years of 5 star reviews. We are very close to all of the great attractions of Chicago.

We are offering a special for late August and early September. 3 nights are $550 and extra nights are $105 each.

We have a deck with an amazing Chicago skyline view. That is the first picture that you see in our ad. We also have a fantastic huge hot tub and a large 5 foot by 3.5 foot steambath shower. They are all great place to relax after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business.

Many of our guests come for trade shows at our convention center, McCormick Place. It's a quick 7 minute drive or 1 stop on the train.

Our guests expect and enjoy a quiet location to enjoy their vacation or business trip. We are on a very quiet and peaceful residential street.

If you are requesting a Saturday arrival or Departure, please email us first before submitting a reservation request. We only offer Sat arrival or departure on a small number of dates and they are priced higher.

You can find our other apartment by putting the listing number 271945 into the search bar at the top left of the page. Erase anything else that is in that box first.

This Apartment has 3 bedrooms and 3 queen beds and sleeps up to 6 guests. We also have a queen air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space. We have fully stocked modern kitchens.

Our rentals are located just South of Downtown Chicago in the quiet and safe neighborhood of Bridgeport. It is a 10-15 minute drive or cab ride or it's a quick train ride to all of our great attractions on our great public transportation system. Ours is one of the safest neighborhoods in Chicago. 5 of our last 8 Mayors spanning 90 years came from our small neighborhood

Our daily newspaper, the Chicago Sun Times recently reported that our neighborhood was voted the best place to trick or treat based on the safety and the family atmosphere of our area. This is what they had to say.

The best neighborhood for trick-or-treating in Chicago? Bridgeport, says a real estate web site that says it factored in where a kid's likely to get 'the most candy, with the least walking and minimal safety risk

How close we are to everything and how safe our area is has made ours a very hot residential destination for the last 15 years. New construction and completely renovated buildings like ours are the norm. We are located on a very quiet and peaceful block.

We include one garage parking space with your rental. Street parking in our area is also very easy.

If this apartment is booked, or if you have a larger group, we have a second apartment in this building that may be available. If you rent both apartments, you will be renting the entire building.

Our apartments are available for lodging only. We do not rent our apartments for parties or gatherings of any kind, or to groups coming for music festivals or concerts. Loud noise late at night or excessive noise anytime is not tolerated. Our rentals are a very bad fit for the heavy partying or very late night crowd. Our guests appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment

We prefer that the guest renting the apartment is 30 years of age or older. We are willing to discuss rentals with responsible adults 25 and older.

The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 persons. The apartment has 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes make slight adjustments on these limits for groups with infants or very young children.

We will offer discounts on longer rentals. Convention and special event dates may also be priced slightly higher or have a higher minimum night stay.

Thank you for taking the time to read through all of the very detailed information in our ad.

We want all of our guests to know exactly what the details of the rental are so that their expectations are met and that this is a good fit for both of us. We try very hard to make sure that our guests have an excellent stay and do all that we can so that you enjoy our beautiful city

We are a legal vacation rental and our license number is 2074660.

Notes:

If this apartment is taken for your dates, we have another apartment listed on Homeaway and VRBO that is in the same building. Ours is a 2 unit apartment building. The listing number is 271945

Ours is a 2 unit building. If this apartment is taken, our other apartment may be available and it is listed on Homeaway and VRBO. If you need more space, you can rent both apartments and you'd have the entire building. Our guests who do that really enjoy that.

We have a few main policies that we prefer to discuss up front. We know that these don't apply to 99% of our guests, but we have learned the hard way that these need to be discussed before we reserve a rental for a guest.

We don’t allow parties or gatherings of any kind. We only rent our apartments for lodging. Noise late at night or excessive noise anytime is very disturbing to our neighbors and other guests, so our rentals are definitely not a good fit for the very late night or very hard partying crowd. We do not rent to guests coming for music festivals or concerts. A few groups ruined that for everyone. We are located in a quiet residential area and our guests and neighbors We prefer that the guest renting the apartment be 30 years old or older, but we are glad to discuss rentals with responsible adults 25 and older.

About our rates. We can often offer additional discounts for longer rentals. We set our rates depend on the length and timing of your rental. Some special events may have higher minimum stay requirements or have higher per night rates for shorter rentals.

If you are concerned about having to cancel your trip, we suggest that you look into trip insurance that is available and offered by many reputable firms online and otherwise. One such firm is http://www.tripinsurancestore.com.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are two lifelong friends who bought this building to live in, remodeled it completely for ourselves, and later converted it to a vacation rental.

Why the Owner Chose South Side, Chicago, IL, USA:
Our building is very close to everything in Chicago, including our convention center, McCormick Place. You are in a quiet and safe neighborhood, but the city center and all of our major attractions are very close. It's the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You will love our deck with the amazing view of the Chicago city skyline, our hot tub, and our huge steam bath shower with multiple Grohe Body Sprays. It is like a massage. We are ½ mile from the I-94 Dan Ryan Expressway. It is a 5 minute drive to Lake Shore Drive and another 10-15 minutes from there to the Museums, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue shopping and every major attraction in this city. When we lived in this building ourselves, we would always be able to get to the lakefront and all of our major attractions in 10 to 20 minutes, even in traffic. If there is a concert, or major festival on the lakefront. we can show you a local shortcut to make great travel time to our city center and skip any traffic.
