About Doug M.
I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in the city for the last 20+ years, the last ten in Bucktown & Logan Square. We've always enjoyed the neighborhood and enjoy being an active part of the neighborhood. I work 10 minutes from the house so I'm always close by. I'm a trained carpenter and now General Contractor. You'll probably find me working on the house and property. I love to spend time with my family and enjoy the neighborhood and Chicago in general. I'm an avid home cook and look forward to preparing and eating with friends and family. We have a puppy in the house, so you may hear him running around every no and then. Will try to keep any noise to a minimum. We live above the garden apartment in the main house. I have a lot of information and recommendations on local places to go/see/do. I'll be more than happy to share this info with you to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Doug M. purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Doug M. chose Logan Square
We've always enjoyed the Bucktown and Logan Square neighborhoods and were ready to move on a single family home from a condominium. We had the opportunity to buy this house and have had a great time. We're happy to share a part of it with you!
What makes this Apartment unique
High walk-able, easy access to other neighborhoods via car, bike or public transportation. Expressway is nearby as well. Anything in the city itself is accessible with public transportation (CTA buses or trains), taxi cabs, and car services like Uber/Lyft/Sidecar. If you need to go out to the suburbs, a rental car would definitely make getting out there easier. There are nearby car rental locations for Enterprise and Zipcar for short term car rental if you need it. The apartment is about a 12 minute walk (1/2 mile) to the CTA Blue Line Elevated/Subway train. That train runs from O'Hare Airport to downtown (our stop is about half way in between). There are 2 major bus routes by the house that can take you east/west and north/south. Ordering a taxi or car service is easy from our location too.

We were very comfortable. It was clean, well-equipped, serene. Child-friendly and Doug was accommodating. We would choose this garden apartment again. The picture didn’t quite do it justice.
Great apartment and location!

Great location Great landlord communication
Clean. comfortable and great location. The apartment is in a basement: you hear your upstairs neighbors but minimal disruptions and occasional. temperature control problems. Mrs Doug immediately took care of it. Good place to stay😀� Thanks
Nice two week stay just off Logan Square.
Exactly as presented. Great place to stay. Quite tree-lined neighborhood near to everything in North Chicago, if you have a vehicle. Free parking! It is a "garden" apartment" which means in the basement. Being use to open air; Dan brought down several fans which alleviated the closeness feeling. This was our first stay with VRBO and I was impressed.
