My family and I rented this home while visiting family in Gurnee, IL. The house was very clean and well maintained with a surprisingly spacious interior that's been updated in recent years. The closet was stocked with games which were a hit with our young children. The owner, Kirk, was great to deal with and provided prompt resposes to all text and e-mail correspondence. He was also available every time I called with a question. I can't comment on the local area as we did not visit any of the local restaurants or use any of the local services. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend this property to friends and family.
