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!

Thanks again! The property was in great condition and check-in and check-out were very easy. The property manager also was extremely prompt in helping us with the few, very minor issues that we encountered. Highly recommend.

Spacious, well maintained condo

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect condo! Plenty of little touches to make it feel homey, yet not cluttered. Everything kitchen pot, spatula and platter we needed for cooking several meals was easily located in the kitchen. Our only wish would be a sharper pair of scissors, but we were thrilled that there were scissors! The on-site manager is a charming fellow, he answered our many questions prior to our stay, and was very helpful during our stay, all with a smile and genuine good cheer.

We rented both the second floor and the top floor condos. They are both wonderful! Our group of 11 had plenty of room to spread out when quiet time was needed, plenty of beds and linens, and the second floor condo has a sofa large enough that we could relax without being cramped. Nor did we feel cramped at meal time between the large dining room table plus bar seating.

Take them up on the offer to use the garage for a small extra fee. We were so very happy we had reserved spots waiting for us at the end of a fun day exploring Chicago.

Would definitely stay here again!

Very nice and modernly updated condo.

  • 4 of 5

The communication about our stay was outstanding. Ross, the property manger, was very welcoming and took the time to go over the amenities of the condo and other items we found to be helpful such as transportation, dining and local shopping. The only negative thing I have to comment about is that the unit only had one TV that was really small. Since we had our two children and two of their friends plus my wife and me, finding TV programming that was acceptable to all was quite challenging.

I would recommend to take the train if you go to downtown Chicago. We drove one day and took the train another day and the time for the commute is very simalar. After you go through the hassle of finding and paying for parking and compare it to walking to the train station and riding the train to downtown we felt it was the best option.

This is the first time we have ever used VRBO/Home Away and are totally sold on this as a better alternative to booking a hotel.

Thanks for making our trip to Chicago comfortable and enjoyable! I highly recommend this property to prospective renters given one television is sufficient for your party! 😉�

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that your family enjoyed your stay in our Tree Top Condo at Residence on the Avenue. Although the TV is an average size 32 in. it is Comcast Cable and there are many channels to chose from. We greatly appreciate the suggestion and we are going to be adding another TV soon. We look forward to having you as our guests. Yours Sincerely, William Harty, Owner,

Nice clean condo with plenty of space and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay over the weekend. Nice and clean, upscale and quiet with plenty of space for the 7 of us. Great location just outside of the big city. Parking in the garage was very convenient and communication with the manager was great. Would definitely stay here again!
