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.

This was our first experience using VRBO.com and we were very pleased. We got all the information necessary quickly and the apartment was exactly as described. For a family of four, it was just the right amount of space. The adults had the upstairs and the kids (teenager/pre-teen) had the downstairs. Lots of restaurants to walk to and all the tourist attractions are close by. Would definitely recommend this location to others.

Great location and fun character

We stayed here for our recent visit to watch the UW vs Illinois football game at Soldier Field. The game was an excuse to bring our kids to explore a big city. The location right next to the beach and one block from the very fun, vibrant Rush St neighborhood was perfect for our trip. Staying in a brownstone was a very fun experience for our family. The place was very charming and well equipped. The EZ bed was easy to operate and very comfy for our kids. My only suggestion would be to add a pack n play for guests with babies, as we had to pack ours on the plane. We loved this place, found it full of character, and it added to our overall experience. We would highly recommend it!

Pretty Much Perfect!

We could not have asked for a better location. Great restaurants and shopping so close by which was perfect since we didn't have a car. The house was clean and spacious and provided everything we needed. We wanted to use their EZ Bed but was disappointed to find it had a hole in it. Ended up using the air mattress which was fine. Wouldn't suggest using the sofa bed - the mattress is very thin and all you can feel are the springs.
Only other comment I have is that the bathrooms are really small - can't get more than one person in them at a time so when you have 6 women trying to get ready for shopping or dinner, it is a bit of a challenge.
Overall, we had a great time and would definately rent this unit again.
