I was very impressed with the entire place overall. It was very easy to find, get to, and roomy.

  • 5 of 5

A group of us women stayed here for a getaway weekend, and the place was perfect. Very clean, comfortable, cozy, and had such a warm feel. The owner was extremely nice, compensating, and caring. She checked in via phone to make sure we got in ok, had everything we needed, and to make sure everything was going well. That was a very nice touch. The beds were amazingly comfortable! I highly recommend staying here! It was above and beyond my expectations.

UChicago Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely Townhouse! Contemporary color palette and decor, cozy beds, and an ideal location for a University of Chicago campus visit. We recently enjoyed our second stay at the Townhouse and have additional bookings this November 2016 and for our son's UChicago graduation this June 2017. We cannot say enough about the comfort and superb amenities Isabel provides, and we are very much looking forward to our upcoming return visits!

Great Chicago Condo!

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with our stay at this property. It was represented very well in the photos and the owner couldn't have been more accommodating! Isabel went so far as to drive my husband around the blocks to show him where there was extra parking and the best routes to get downtown! She even went out and got a pack-n-play for our granddaughter! She was SO nice! She has a great notebook with tons of information of the area, bus routes, restaurants, etc. The condo was very clean and the beds & pillows were really comfortable. Plenty of room for all 6 adults and one infant. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity as well. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone interested in visiting Chicago!

Excellent townhouse, helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this townhouse for several weeks and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Isabel was informative, reliable, and easy to work with throughout the process of booking and preparing for my visit, as well as during my time in Chicago. The townhouse is within an easy walking distance of the University of Chicago, several key bus stations, and many restaurants and sites of interest. The property was in impeccable condition when I arrived, with an especially good kitchen (plenty of pots, pans, and utensils, as well as plates and glasses). The doors are secure and the presence of U. of Chicago security officers across the street added to a feeling of safety at this location. In sum, a highly recommended property.

This townhouse is located at the University of Chicago Campus which is home of to many cultural activities as well as cafes, shops and restaurants, as well as world class museums. It is near the lake shore with access to beaches and marinas. It is beautiful to bike to downtown on the lakefront park, entirely on car free bike paths along the lake shore (about 30 minute leisurely ride). This home is ideal for visiting scholars and visiting families of University of Chicago students. Its location is also convenient for people attending conventions: it is a very short (15 minutes) and direct drive to McCormick Place - Chicago's largest Convention center. If you prefer to go by bike, it takes about 30 minutes on safe and beautiful panoramic lakefront bike paths. Public golf course is found at nearby Jackson Park. Last but not least, this home is also an affordable accommodation for families visiting Chicago.
