We arrived for our three-month stay in Chicago on June 1 and were met by Roe, one of the owners and the manager of the property. Roe is an extremely cordial individual and it was clear, wanted to do everything possible to make our stay the very best experience it could be.
The property is an extremely large two bedroom unit, which has been furnished very nicely. Each of the bedrooms has a large screen TV, which worked well for us in as much as my wife and I have totally different taste in television shows! One bedroom also has a desk and the unit is equipped with Wi-Fi so using a laptop was a piece a cake. The unit also has everything you will need except a toothbrush! And added plus is the enclosed backyard and use of the garage for parking your car. Additionally, there is lots of free, on-street parking available, which, in Chicago, is rare.
The Lincoln Square area has lots and lots to offer! There are numerous restaurants, a movie theater and a grocery store within 300 yards of the unit. Should you opt not to use your car, public transportation is very close and easily accessible. Lastly, the lakefront is only about 2 miles away.
Roe was extremely attentive to our needs and acted expeditiously to fix any items we brought to his attention. He also made it very clear that we were welcome to use any of his personal property stored in the garage (lawn chairs etc.). Roe also came to our rescue on two occasions when we inadvertently locked ourselves out of the unit!
All in all, it was an excellent three-month vacation and we would not hesitate to stay at the property again. Thanks, Roe, for a wonderful summer!
