About the Property

"Palace" sleeps 10 (2nd & 3rd fl, 3 bed/2 bath w/2 sofa sleepers, huge deck)

Need more space.....rent the condo upstairs. The "Loft" (VRBO#411142) sleeps 8 (on 4th/5th fl, 3 bed/2 bath w/ 1 sofa sleeper, private rooftop).

- Your vacation home is a 1650 sq. ft duplex. The condo is located on the East side of Wicker Park. Being on the east side means closer to the expressway (2 min), closer to the Division Blue Line Train (5-7 min walk) and cheaper cab fares since we are right off of the expressway ($10-15 from most Chicago attractions).

This unit sleeps 10 people: 3 bedrooms (1 king, 2 queen beds), 2 bath, 2 sofa sleepers (queen in the semi private loft & full size in living room).

- The 'PALACE' condo is the 2nd and 3rd floor of a 5 story building in East Village / Bucktown / Wicker Park / Ukranian Village area.

The first floor of the condo consists of 2 bedrooms with queen beds that opens to a 5' x 22' covered balcony and the private deck over the 2 car garage, bathroom with shower, the kitchen, and the living room has a fireplace with full size sofa sleeper plus 55'' tv.


-The second floor loft in the condo has a queen sofa bed, tv and laundry room. The back half of that floor has the master bedroom with king bed and master bath.

- It has all the amenities dishes, pots & pans, towels & linens, cable television, wireless internet (code will be provided)

Some Wicker Park boutiques(Noir, le Dress, Paper Doll, Penelope's, Pagoda Red, Nina, Psycho Baby, Pavilion,), art galleries, theaters, restaurants, summer patio's, nightclubs and coffeehouses (Ex. Carriage House, Bedford, Prasino, Anthem,Boundary, Jerry's, Fifty/50, Smoke Daddy's). A 10 minute walk to Bucktown and 5-10 minutes to Chicago Avenue places.

- Take TRAIN (Blue Line) from O'Hare to Division Street Blue Line and less than a 10 minute walk to condo. Same TRAIN (Blue line) takes you to the downtown area in 15 minutes (about 2 miles), 2 blocks away is Chicago Ave to catch the 66 bus to Michigan Avenue and Navy Pier. Best part is to get exhausted exploring the city and you are only a $10-$15 cab ride back to condo because we are a few blocks from the expressway. For our travelers with cars street parking is free right around the corner.

An additional unit is available in the same building on the 4th/5th floor. It is 3 bedrooms, 2 bath, 1 sofa sleeper, and private rooftop deck facing the Chicago Skyline. Property number is 411142.

Wicker Park/Bucktown area: Imagine a foodie haven, boutique shopping, bar hopping, martini sipping, hipster vibe, world class neighborhood. From Marc Jacobs and Club Monaco to thrift shops and Fjallraven, welcome to Wicker Park. It has a trendy, local vibe and is conveniently located right off the safe Blue Line with three major L stops just six minutes from the Loop and downtown-- Division, Damen, Western. What I love most about Wicker Park is the laid back environment with genuinely good people. Tons of young people, families, young professionals, the business crowd, and yes.... hipsters! While it appears the more artsy, hipster scene is migrating north to Logan Square due to skyrocketing living costs in Wicker Park, the culture undoubtedly still exists. My personal favorite is Division Street on the southern border of the neighborhood. Lots of exciting developments and a more reserved scene compared to the hustle and bustle of the Six Corners (North Ave, Milwaukee, Damen). Spend your time walking around the perimeter roads (Division, Damen, North, Ashland ... Ashland is the least interesting) and the primary cut-through road (Milwaukee Ave). Take a little time to wander through the side streets, there are many older homes that are quite nice, plus a number of new constructions sneaking in alongside.

You'll love the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood for its proximity to the best that Chicago has to offer –an array of shopping and dining choices, local theatres, art shows, fests, museums, beautiful parks, historical homes and family fun. All of this is balanced with its neighborhood charm, locally owned and run businesses - boutiques, cafes, bars and renowned restaurants.

PROXIMITY TO DOWNTOWN: The Loop Business District and Magnificent Mile shopping area are just 1.5 miles east of this neighborhood (a 10 minute cab ride or a 10 minute “L” train ride.) Both O'Hare and Midway Airports are a 20-45 minute cab ride, or take the famed "L" train Blue Line from either airport to the Division Avenue stop, and walk 5 minutes to the condo. The “L” train station is just 4 blocks from the front door.
