About Paul Harty

I am a 4th generation Chicagoan. My roots are very deep in the City of Chicago going back to my Great, Great Grandparents on both side of the family. I love Chicago and I currently live in the first floor apartment of The Winona Residence with my wife Cathy and our Irish Terrier Mickey.

I am the Vice President of our Family owned heating and air conditioning company in the west suburb of Schaumburg Illinois. I have been in the heating and air conditioning business since 1976. I am a licensed electrician and I have a Managing Brokers Real Estate License.

Paul Harty purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Paul Harty chose Ravenswood

The Winona Residence is located in the Chicago north side neighborhood of Andersonville. Andersonville is listed by Red Fin in 2015 as one of the Top Ten Neighborhoods in the USA. Listed at #7. The location is wonderfully located for easy access for all public transportation to downtown Chicago. The public transportation downtown Andersonville and Lake Michigan are within walking distance from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is one of only 73 Legal Licensed Vacation Rentals in the city of Chicago. If a property does not have a City of Chicago Hotel License. They are not a legal vacation rental. This home is unique because of its vintage character from the early 1900’s and friendly neighborhood. Being on the second floor you get privacy from the tree lined street. You can admire the view while out on the front balcony or sit in the back sunroom looking out to the backyard. This location is very accessible to downtown Chicago and the walk is less than 2-blocks to the heart of downtown Andersonville.

Super clean and wonderfully decorated place. Paul was just super

  • 5 of 5

Again such a lovely place in a great neighborhood. Very clean. Stocked with plenty of books and games and great history of Chicago. Helpful neighborhood guide and plenty of linens and needed items . We will return again and so very thankful Paul was a super “host”. Gave us all the needed info for our stay there and promptly helped us out when of all things we got locked in!! Wonderful place and a very nice gentleman. Super ! He does a great job maintaining the property and taking care of his guests. Our first experience with VRBO and we are so throughly pleased.

Plenty of space, clean and incredible location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. The only reason for a 4 star instead of a 5 was the bathroom. The hardware could use an update, as all knobs from the shower to the sink were difficult to operate. The water was nice and hot just not the best pressure. Other than that it was a great stay. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Since your stay I have replaced the faucet for the sink, I replaced the cartridge for the shower handle and I have replaced the shower head. I'm so sorry you had to experience the difficulty. But all is taken care of. Thank you for the review, Paul

What a wonderful place! Our group had 2 adults & 2 small children and it worked out perfect. It was so handy to have full kitchen, dining & living rooms for us to spread out. WAY better than a hotel. The owners have it arranged so conveniently. Will stay here again when I'm back in the area!

We had a great visit to Chicago for a Blackhawks game and visit to Wrigley. House was perfect for us with 2 adults and 2 teenagers. So much more comfortable having separate bedrooms rather than a hotel and yet all of the amenities of a hotel! Highly recommend!!
