About Dan

We are an Oak Park family with a boy and a girl in the local grade school. We are in a situation in which we have this amazing apartment attached, yet entirely separate, from our home and have decided to rent it out. We are enormous fans of Oak Park, Chicago and the architecture that you will see in these areas. The apartment is designed to be a staging ground for those that are experiencing this great area.

Dan purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Dan chose Oak Park

The owners of this apartment are life long Oak Parkers. We love this town and the greater Chicago area. We look forward to our guests enjoying and experiencing the place we call home.

What makes this apartment unique

Oak Park has a dearth of hotel rooms. Those that are available are a bit tired and no frills. This apartment is an alternative to those options and will allow guests to live as a family in a home-like setting, rather than cramped hotel rooms. The owners of this apartment will provide you everything that you need, while giving you all the privacy that you desire.

Beautiful, safe, and comfortable Oak Park residence

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were made to feel right at home in this beautifully furnished and immaculately kept downstairs apartment in the heart of an imminently safe and walkable neighborhood. It gave a us a commodious retreat from the city while still being close enough to access the attractions of Chicago via car or by rail. The convenience of neighborhood eateries as well as a Trader Joe's grocery market enhanced the experience. For those like us with an interest in prairie-style architecture, being mere blocks away (easy walking distance) from the Oak Park home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright an added attraction Although we only were there for 3 nights, we could have remained there comfortably for a long, extended stay with all of the amenities offered. We could not recommend any place more highly!

Quiet Neighborhood Rental in Oak Park

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Oak Park visiting our daughter. The rental location is in a great neighborhood and was ideal for getting around and exploring the city. The owners made it easy to get in touch with if needed and the check-in and check-out process were seamless.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent place to stay. The apartment itself is comfortable, well equipped, super clean and accurately described. Loved all the wood...We arrived on a hot weekend and it was lovely to retreat here to peaceful coolness after a busy day in the city.

We were able to park our car here for the entire stay and use the Green Line trains to get downtown. The 1/2 mile walk to the train became our own architecture walk to see as many Lloyd Wright homes as possible along the way. Oak Park itself is very pleasant with good places to eat.

We never met the owners but they were excellent to deal with and supplied clear information for accessing apartment and other useful details for stay.

Loved the Prairie Style!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Extremely clean, open spaces. Big kitchen. Great location. Beds were very comfortable. Big walk in closet. We were busy so didn't spend much time here, except to sleep, but there were loads of games and books.

Great property & Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this property, our daughter goes to Concordia Chicago and was performing at the Madison Street Theater in Oak Park - the location is perfect, accommodations, furnishing, bedding etc are all excellent!

The only thing I'd note for prospective guests, is that this is in the lower level of a family home (as described) so typical noises of people walking around and talking in the main house are audible, so if you're looking for a very private & quiet location you may want to reconsider. However, this is not an issue for our family and we will book this property again without hesitation.

This apartment is nicely situated for you to experience Oak Park and the greater Chicagoland area. It is located 9 miles west of the Chicago downtown and between O'Hare & Midway (11 miles to each airport). Apartment is 1/2 mile away from train to downtown that links to trains to the airports. The apartment is also within a mile from Concordia University and Dominican University, which it makes it a perfect lodging option for guests in town for a reunion or Parent's Weekend.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio is about four blocks away. From there you can admire many of Wright's homes and hundreds of other significant homes. Downtown Oak Park is just a couple of blocks further. Here you will have a large selection of restaurants and shops. There is also a movie theatre. Trader Joe's, Whole Foods & Jewel are all steps from downtown. Two blocks down from the apartment, you can enjoy authentic Chicago deep dish pizza at Giordanos. Afterwards, treat yourself to ice cream at Peterson's, which is an Oak Park institution. The villages of Forest Park & River Forest are right next door and offer their own selection of historic homes, shops & restaurants.
