Perfect getaway condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely stunning and perfectly appointed as well as being EXACTLY as pictured! It was a treat for us to stay there this past weekend during the marathon. The neighborhood was terrific and quiet and well situated to get to either the bus or train and offered a variety of nearby small grocery stores to pick up those breakfast items that you might want to have on hand. The street itself is tree-lined and very pretty.

The condo itself (and the building) is in wonderful condition, very clean and with beautiful hardwood floors throughout, big windows to let the sunlight in, and an open floor plan with the huge kitchen, living room and dining room all together. The three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were spacious, impeccably maintained and nicely decorated and the washer/dryer was a bonus and tucked away at the back of the condo. This is a very spacious and open condo that exudes warmth and convenience.

The owner and the property manager were both very responsive, and the property manager, who lives on site, gave us a full tour and explanation of how everything in the condo worked and left us with a book of notes on local restaurants, transportation and how to check-out. We were given all the info. we needed to enjoy the privacy that the unit offered, but we knew that the property manager was there if we had additional questions. Ross was very nice and a wonderful host!

Wanted to give a shoutout to a local restaurant that was suggested as being very good: Bar Ombra, in the Andersonville neighborhood (closeby) was fabulous....the homemade pasta meals and the wood grilled chicken were to die for! We highly recommend enjoying dinner there!

Everyone in our group (two couples and our youngest adult daughter) truly enjoyed this unit, the area and the ability to relax and visit with each other, something we wouldn't have been able to do if we had stayed in a hotel room. We had a lovely time in this condo and wouldn't hesitate to rent here again.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend in Chicago!

Beautiful and spacious place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a 3-day weekend at William’s amazing place! William was very helpful and responsive right after we booked the place. His place was clean and very spacious. The large sectional in the living room was a nice place for our family to reconvene at the end of the day to cuddle in for a nice movie! All the bedrooms were very spacious and the bathrooms were beautifully updated and clean. The location of this apartment is amazing. It’s within 15-20 minutes drive to everywhere we wanted to go and the choices of good restaurants nearby are endless! Another nice thing is that the property manager lives in the same building. He was so sweet and helpful! We will definitely stay at this place again in the future!

Loved it!

It was clean, spacious and exactly as seen in the pictures, we felt right at home. I highly recommend this place, the owner was easy to get a hold of and having someone on site made getting acclimated easier.

Lovely large apartment on a quiet residential suite. Perfect distance for walk to Evanston!

  • 5 of 5

Prompt communication and friendly, easy access into apartment. We’ve already booked our next stay! One small thing for business: internet can be spotty, members of our group that had to work on computers noted this.

Fantastic! Better than I imagined!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Residence on the Avenue over the Christmas holidays and it far exceeded our expectations.

For starters, it is HUGE. The size of the kitchen alone is worth the price of admission. The home was beautifully furnished, comfortable and spacious. My two sisters and I comfortably shared the room with two queen beds (which has TONS of closet space), my father enjoyed his master bedroom suite and my brother had his own room. The location was convenient for our needs. Another bonus was having a garage parking spot, which in Chicago is great any day, but especially helpful as it snowed during our stay.

There's an in-unit washer and dryer, Wifi, cable, DVD player and a selection of DVD's to choose from. Also included was a helpful binder full of neighborhood information including transportation options, stores and restaurants (we had dinner at one of the reccomended restaurants, R Public House, which was delicious). The owner, William, is lovely and the building manager, Ross was so nice and helpful.

Really, I can't say enough wonderful things about Residence on the Avenue. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
