About The Owner

Mark and Ashley are a husband and wife team that have one foot planted firmly in Chicago. As a former Chicago resident for 10 years, Ashley has both friends and family in Chicago. We have twins who love to visit Chicago! They both know that Dad's favorite building is the Hancock.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Chicago

There is only one Gold Coast in Chicago and this historical building is in the heart of it. Our endeavor started out with simply wanting a place to stay when we would visit and eventually use in retirement. We love Chicago and all the City has to offer...from great food, to world class shopping, to museums, architecture, sports, beaches...you name it and Chicago has it all.

What makes this condo unique

The location cannot be beat. Chicago's epicenter for nightlife is at the end of the block with fabulous restaurants like Gibson's, Tavern On Rush, Morton's, etc. coming together in a perfect triangular parklike setting. If you want to feel like a true Chicago resident in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Chicago, this is the place. The tree-lined street is a perfect prelude to your arrival at this historical building. Shopping on Michigan Avenue is just a block away as well. It's an AMAZING location!

Charming and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this lovely historic brownstone many times over the last 5 years. There is no reason to stay elsewhere. The flat is charming and spacious with a nicely appointed full kitchen. The bedroom is in the back so its very quiet and the bed is large and comfortable. The neighborhood is the best in the city, very pretty and very safe. There are dozens of great restaurants in a short walking distance (hundreds within a mile) along with very high-end shopping destinations. You can hail a cab on the corner and get where ever you need to go in the city. If stairs are a challenge for you, be sure to select unit 1 or 2. We prefer unit 3, but do not mind the flights of stairs.

Windy City Wedding Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We rented the whole brownstone for our daughter's wedding weekend. Our whole family (11 adults) had plenty of room, beds, clean linen, towels, dish ware ect ... for a comfortable stay. The brownstone was clean and as described, there were no surprises. The outside had newly planted fall flowers in the window boxes and pots. Inside had new curtains on the bedroom windows and the house was neat and clean. We used both, blow up beds and a new pullout couch that has a memory foam topper to put on the flimsy mattress. My adult son slept on that and it was very comfortable. We were impressed by the water pressure and the plentiful hot water for showering. Grocery stores, Bloomingdales and many great restaurants for all budgets within a 5 minute walk. My husband and I came in a day earlier than the rest of the family and we grocery shopped for the weekend. Treasure Island .3 miles from the brownstone delivered our groceries and carried them up to the 2nd floor apt. For a $9 dollar delivery fee. This was wonderful since we had bought cases of bottled water and other heavier items. Recommend Nico for dinner and Luxbar for brunch. I highly recommend this Brownstone for family gatherings! We will be back!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
You can't beat the location of this apartment. It was within walking distance of just about all the great sights of Chicago. And if not, there was a CTA station very close by. Located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. The apartment was very comfortable and very accurately described in the pictures on the booking site. We found it to be a very nice place.

Incredible neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
This property was gorgeous! The location was amazing, the condo was gorgeous and very romantic! We were able to go out every night and walk the streets and feel safe. We felt like we lived there as opposed to being just tourists in the city. It made a big difference in our experience!! Any time I hear a friend or family member say they are going to Chicago I will recommend they stay here! We WILL be back!!

Great Apartment and Location in Chicago

  • 5 of 5
Good service and owner kept in contact well throughout the booking period. Really liked this old Brownstone building. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and clean (although you had to pay up front for the cleaning). The owner was only a phone call away if you had any problems with the apartment and these were dealt with swiftly. The only thing missing in the kitchen was an electric kettle and a few more saucepans would have been useful. The bed was very comfortable. Location couldn't have been better, near to everything and easily walkable into the city and to the beach and Lake Michigan. There were a lot of good restaurants and excellent supermarkets nearby. I really enjoyed this apartment, Chicago and its very friendly people.

Half a block to Oak Street Beach and around the corner from the heart of the Mag Mile. You cannot get this type of convenience by staying in Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, or South Loop. A perfect mixture of tree-lined street, neighborhood charm and being in the heart of the action that is downtown Chicago.
