Awesome Place!!

  • 5 of 5

This couldn't have been any better! Bill met me at the train exit, drove me to the condo, and showed me around. Such personal service is very unusual. He was helpful with parking ideas, restaurants, movie theatre location, etc. He is a wonderful host/owner.

The condo has great views and everything needed is there. Liked the convenience of the mini mart in the basement...great for grabbing wine, snacks, etc. Easy walk to the parks, art museum, etc.

You can't go wrong here....convenience, price, hospitality. Will definitely go back!! Thanks Bill.

EXCELLENT ACCOMMODATIONS IN CHICAGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

  • 5 of 5

Wow, wow, wow, are all the words and more that I would use to describe this wonderful, conveniently located, oh so super clean condo in River City. Everything you could ask for and more was available to my husband and I for our 5 day stay in Chicago. Bill the owner of this condo was so easy to deal with from start to finish. I have rented many condos and accommodations through VRBO but this was by far the best interaction I have ever had. When I return to Chicago, which will be sooner rather than later as I loved everything Chicago has to offer, I will definetely stay at Bill's condo once again. Thank you so much Bill for making our stay in Chicago such a memorable experience.

Karen and Doug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best guy out there

  • 5 of 5

My family & I have stayed at different places in the U.S using this site. The owner Bill by far is the best person we have come across. He is organized, considerate, thoughtful & just an amazing human being. He picked us up from the train stop & was always accessible. His place is super clean & has everything you need. The building location is terrific. Everything is within walking distance. Thank you so much Bill.

A Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bill's condo for the weekend and it was quite a find! Bill even drove us to Navy Pier in rush hour traffic on Friday afternoon. The murphy bed was comfortable and the place was clean when we arrived. Our first experience with Uber in Chicago went very well. We sat on the balcony for coffee both mornings and watched the boats. Definitely saving to my favorites and look forward to staying again. Thank you, Bill!

tidy condo, easy booking

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean studio, great location, cool building, and easy to book. Bill was prompt and courteous.

It was perfect for me and my husband for a weekend getaway in Chicago. Our destination was the museum of contemporary art to see the Bowie exhibit. It was a quick cab ride there. Also plenty to see and do in the neighborhood as noted by other reviews. We went to a few pubs and to the movies just a few blocks away.

We only stayed two nights but wish we could stay longer. The building itself is an architectural marvel!

chicago marathon stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. We stayed here for the Chicago Marathon and could not have picked a better place. The condo was spotless and the view from the balcony was great. The start finish line was less than 1/2 mile away. Restaurants and the downtown loop where well within walking distance. The orange line from the Midway airport brings you very close to the condo which was a added bonus for the trip. We even walked the Navy Pier for lunch and shopping. Bill and Ami were very nice and easy to communicate with making the entire vacation a memorable one.
