About Dan

We are an Oak Park family with a boy and a girl in the local grade school. We are in a situation in which we have this amazing apartment attached, yet entirely separate, from our home and have decided to rent it out. We are enormous fans of Oak Park, Chicago and the architecture that you will see in these areas. The apartment is designed to be a staging ground for those that are experiencing this great area.

Dan purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Dan chose Illinois

The owners of this apartment are life long Oak Parkers. We love this town and the greater Chicago area. We look forward to our guests enjoying and experiencing the place we call home.

What makes this apartment unique

Oak Park has a dearth of hotel rooms. Those that are available are a bit tired and no frills. This apartment is an alternative to those options and will allow guests to live as a family in a home-like setting, rather than cramped hotel rooms. The owners of this apartment will provide you everything that you need, while giving you all the privacy that you desire.

Great place in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved walking around the Oak Park neighborhood. Wonderful architecture for adults to enjoy and nice park/playgrounds for kids. Pleasant walk to train station passing great bakeries and restrauants. Apartment was nice. Could hear people overhead but not significantly disruptive or late at night. After a long day sightseeing it was great to come back to apartment to crash and have kitchen to make dinner. Our daughter enjoyed the kids books in the apartment.

Wonderful Lodging in Oak Park

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in Oak Park for many years, we went back to visit relatives and attend the Frank Lloyd Wright House walk, which is walking distance from this apartment. The apartment was spacious, clean and quiet. Lot's of space, everything you need to be comfortable. Very convenient location to shops, restaurants and attractions. The weekend was cool and rainy, so we spent a far amount of time in the apartment with relatives and really enjoyed it!

Thanks to Dan for being a wonderful host!

Clean Comforatble and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a great few days stay at this apartment. It was clean (very important to me), well stocked with kitchen utensils (we cooked a few meals), tv and wifi worked great. I am hoping to book the apartment again the next time I am in town visiting my daughter. Thanks Dan!

Good location, comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well suited for our needs. You can hear the owners moving around in the main house, but you do not hear voices, just footsteps. The owner was responsive and provided all the information and details needed well before our visit. He responded quickly to questions we had after arrival.

The location is great as far as getting to the city or to the other near suburbs. If you are a Wright architecture buff, this location is great for seeing the numerous Wright designed houses in Oak Park. We would book here again in the future.

This apartment is nicely situated for you to experience Oak Park and the greater Chicagoland area. It is located 9 miles west of the Chicago downtown and between O'Hare & Midway (11 miles to each airport). Apartment is 1/2 mile away from train to downtown that links to trains to the airports. The apartment is also within a mile from Concordia University and Dominican University, which it makes it a perfect lodging option for guests in town for a reunion or Parent's Weekend.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio is about four blocks away. From there you can admire many of Wright's homes and hundreds of other significant homes. Downtown Oak Park is just a couple of blocks further. Here you will have a large selection of restaurants and shops. There is also a movie theatre. Trader Joe's, Whole Foods & Jewel are all steps from downtown. Two blocks down from the apartment, you can enjoy authentic Chicago deep dish pizza at Giordanos. Afterwards, treat yourself to ice cream at Peterson's, which is an Oak Park institution. The villages of Forest Park & River Forest are right next door and offer their own selection of historic homes, shops & restaurants.
