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!

Great for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

This unit has a wonderful kitchen, dining and living area. We had family from in town and out of town and there was plenty of room to enjoy out meals together

The unit sleeps up to eight with two bathrooms so planning for showers etc is important

Also the unit is three floors up without an elevator which we managed just fine--just helpful to know

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults staying in this unit and we were all comfortable. The large oversize couch fit almost all of us. Check in and Check out was very easy. Walk to bus stop was only 5 minutes down the road and train was about 20 minute walk... Walgreens was on the same route as well as variety and liquor store so made it easy to pick up a few things when returning to the unit. Kitchen had everything you need, including some spices and other things. Neighborhood was in a residential area, but we were comfortable walking to a local bar after dark. Did not use the garden, but did spend an afternoon having some drinks on the back deck (small but adequate) Would stay here again!

Perfect place to stay with family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our two teenagers and our small dogs. What a great place! It was clean, comfortable and in a great location. William, the owner, takes care of this place. Ross is there to help with anything you need. If you drive a car as big as a Chevy Tahoe it will not fit in the garage. However, once you find a spot to park on the street there are no time limits. Just leave your vehicle parked and take an Uber or Lyft to avoid the many hassles of driving in Chicago. I would book this place again!

Great Location and Great Service!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a perfect location - near the redline Howard Station stop and a wonderful neighborhood. We got great service from Ross the property manager who is delightful. His recommendations for where to dine was spot on. He was responsive when I called him and was waiting for us when we arrived. The condo is fully stocked, comfortable and roomy with 3 bedrooms. Highly recommend this condo for your trip to Chicago.
