Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time in Chicago. The location of the brownstone was perfect- we walked everywhere and were able to jump on the L close by. I don't have any criticism- thanks for making it such an easy process.



Thanks!

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 apartment in 2008

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.

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!

MAG MILE BROWNSTONE

  • 2 of 5
The photos are accurate but the building is older than I expected. The apt. smells of mildew and my allergies flared up. The water faucet to the bathtub/shower did not work properly and after showering the water would not off. The next day it would not go on. I called every number from the paperwork and website and emailed the owner/leasing agent but got no reply from anyone. I wouldn't recommend staying here for these reasons.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT MINUS THE BED IN THE MASTER

  • 4 of 5
We loved almost everything about this apartment. In a quiet neighborhood near many sites and restaurants. Great layout in the apartment and well decorated.

Our only issue was the mattress in the master bedroom. It was a pillow top which had very large body impressions on each side. My wife was so uncomfortable after the first night that she slept on the air mattress with my daughter the remainder of the trip.

If they would replace the mattress I would definitely repeat a visit and recommend it to others. Unfortunately I would not repeat at the present condition.

I did not contact the owner about the mattress issue during the stay because there wasn't much which could be done during our 4 day trip to rectify the issue.

The communications with the owner before the trip were clear and concise.

JUST WHAT WAS NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
No hassle, convenient, clean, spacious 1 bedroom apartment that is only a few minutes away from Downtown Chicago. Most definitely will contact the owners again when I need to go the Windy City.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Sensational quality accommodation, located in a fantastic community close to everything. Walk to Manificent Mile, heaps of great restaurants, and close access to train, providing easy link to the airport. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and will definitely stay here again when we are next in Chicago.

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I couldn't have picked a better location to enjoy four days in Chicago. The street is beautiful with an eclectic variety of building. And the neighborhood is very safe and close to some terrific resaurants (of all price ranges), grocery store and pharmacies.

The apartment was very comfortable and exactly as described. The only negative was that we found coffee filters but no coffee machine. If there was one we didn't locate it. Simple fix, we went and bought a drip machine and left it for future visitors to enjoy.

Sitting in the living area in the morning listening to the birds outside the large picture window facing the street and enjoying a cup of java was special to both of us. Then it was lace up the walking shoes and head out to the Magnificent Mile, Rush Street, Old Town or the Navy Pier for a view of the Chicago skyline.

If we decide to return to Chicago we would definitely look into staying at this Brownstone again.

BEST VRBO EVER!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at a lot of VRBO properties over the past few years and we have rated this one an A++ Couldn't ask for a nicer, cleaner, well set up, spacious, quietier property and the location is second to none (less than 1/2 a block from Michigan Ave and very close to lots of great restaurants). The pictures accurately reflect the property, what the pictures do not show is how comfortable and cozy the furniture and bed is. All contact with the owners was very profesional as well as friendly and informative.
