Guestbook comments from the owner
The four of us enjoyed our stay in the beautiful brownstone property on Cedar. The location was perfect for walking everywhere from Second City to the Art Institute. We were able to comfortably visit together but had privacy at the same time. The restaurants and nightclubs were right around the corner and we enjoyed several of them. Cedar is a very quiet residential street and sleeping was easy and we felt safe and right at home.

DISAPPOINTED!!!

  • 1 of 5
Wow, This property was tattered and torn. Hardwood flooring in awful condition. Ripped lamp shade and couch cushion in living room. Torn curtain in master bed room. Kitchen cabinets chipped from daily use with no repairs for years. Water stopped flowing from shower head in first floor bath when water was used in other rooms. Clearly the pictures on the VRBO website are very , very , very old!! Most importantly when asked about an unfavorable review which pointed out all of the same issues, we were assured that all problems had been taken care of.
If you don't care about the condition of your rental then stay here. On a positive note the Gold Coast location was very convenient.

PERFECT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
The property description was accurate. The bedrooms and living areas are roomy. The location is perfect for sightseeing, dining, and shopping. We walked to the grocery store, several restaurants, Navy Pier, and down Michigan Avenue to the river. The kitchen was our gathering area each evening. We would definitely recommend it.

LOCATION LOCATION :)

We had this entire Brownstone. It was in a great location within walking distance of so much. The stairs might be a problem for some folks if they have any physical limitations. It was such fun to walk to meals, hike to the beach, walk to shopping and more.

NOT FIRST CLASS - BUYER BEWARE

  • 1 of 5
The Brownstone look stunning on the website & it stated, "One area boosts a fireplace suited for royalty. Or, grab a cup of tea and enjoy the leather sofa next to the antique arched windows opening up onto a wonderful street scene. If you are fortunate to get the master bedroom, you will be able to enjoy your own fireplace while you breakfast in bed"
The unit was not stunning when we unlocked the door & walk in. We could not believe our eyes! The couch was not leather as described in the description (no big deal) but it was in noticeably shabby condition & needed replacement cushions. The unit was not clean as it had cobwebs in the corners and dirt under furniture and the baseboards were dusty, dirty, and had cobwebs. Many electrical outlets were missing the plate covers. Both fireplaces were non-functional. The living room area fireplace had candles and a basket in it. The bedroom fireplace had an artificial plant in it and basket in it and no fireplace screen. The large closet in the master bedroom was in total disarray with no readily useable space to store our clothing. There was not chest of drawers in this bedroom to store clothing. (The website indicated, two lovely designer bedrooms.) The hardwood floors needed attention as they were very marred & in some areas there was no finish remaining on the floor. There were open bags of food [these were not sealed of chips, cereal, crackers] in the kitchen cabinets from previous guests.
When we arrived home we did contact the owners by voicemail & email numerous times. We sent the pictures by email with detailed description of our experience. We sent a detailed typed letter including photos to the owners. The company representative & reservation manager contacted us the next day after receiving the emails & photos. He stated he knew the fireplaces did not work. He said he would pass on the information to the owners and get back to us the next day. 9 days later we still had not heard from anyone so we sent another email to the owners. We got a phone message stating we would receive a refund for the cleaning fee & one nights rent. We received an email later that day stating that the owners appreciated the depth & detail we went into to inform them of the unsatisfactory cleaning & maintenance work. We received refund for one night stay & he said he misspoke about cleaning fee. We were told they have already taken maintenance action required to address the issues we informed them of.

WONDERFUL STAY - WE'LL STAY HERE AGAIN.

Wonderful Stay - We'll stay here again.

We went to Chicago for our daughters wedding and stayed 4 nights. Our family is rather large so we needed something with a kitchen and laundry facilities. We had three adult children (ages 40,33,23), one married, and three grandchildren (19,14,11). My husband and I and my close friend stayed in the unit with two bedrooms. It has the washer/dryer. All had full baths and kitchens. We rented all three units, which provided privacy for all of us. There is a stairway joining all three units but there is a door for each unit that steps out to the stairway. The kids could come and go without disturbing us.We could not have selected a better place to stay. The location is safe and we were able to walk everywhere. I stayed at the Trump for my visit in June for Bridal Shower, but this location is far superior. Make sure you shop around for parking. The cost to park at the end of the street was high so we moved the vehicles next day a block or two down the street. If you leave and come back they charge you again!! We got 3 nights - for two cars - for $100.00 and we could come and go for no additional cost. Smooth trisection via email for all we needed to secure the units. Many restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Most of all we could walk the street at night and feel safe. 1/2 block to Lake Michigan! Tree lined street.
