Weekdays are priced lower than weekends.Some dates are priced at normal rates of $240 per night. The rate depends on what dates and for how many nights. Ask about specials for August 2nd through 8th or August 31st through Sept 7th.

If this apartment is booked, or if you have a larger group, we have a second apartment in this building that may be available. If you rent both apartments, you will be renting the entire building.

http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p271945

You will be comfortable and at home in our rentals.

This Apartment has 3 bedrooms and 3 queen beds and sleeps up to 6 guests. We also have a queen air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space.

This site's quotable rates often do not match how we price our rentals and are sometimes not very accurate especially when we offer specials with discounts for additional nights. We try to set our rates as best as we can and show an average rate.. Please email or call us for an accurate rate quote. Rates for summer are usually the most accurate and last minute special rates are the least accurate as additional nights above our minimum are priced lower and this site is not able to calculate these rates correctly.

PLEASE CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR BEFORE INQUIRING. We often book up solid and very early. If this apartment is booked, our other apartment is listing number 271945. You can also reach us at our personal site which is Chicagosbestvacationrentals dot com

You can view a map of our location at Google Maps by typing in the following information.

529 W. 37th Street, Chicago IL 60609 When the map loads, you can click “get directions” to enter an address or “search nearby” to search for attractions.

The map is at street level, so please zoom it out a level or two and scroll north to see where we are at relative to downtown and McCormick Place. If you're coming for a show at McCormick, please let us know and we'll send information on getting there.

This rental is located just South of Downtown Chicago in the quiet and safe neighborhood of Bridgeport. It is a 10-15 minute drive or cab ride or it's a quick train ride to all of our great attractions on our great public transportation system. Ours is one of the safest neighborhoods in Chicago. 5 of our last 8 Mayors spanning 90 years came from our small neighborhood

Describing Our Neighborhood: Our proximity to downtown, McCormick Place , and I.I.T, has made ours a very hot residential destination for the last 10 years. One of our neighbors 5 or 6 houses away recently built a $2.5 million house and next door is a huge house with an indoor swimming pool in it's own addition that is listed for 1.7 million. New construction and completely renovated buildings like ours are the norm. Ours is a very quiet and peaceful block.

Baseball fans will love that we are a 5 minute walk to U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. For Cub Fans, the train runs directly between both ballparks.

We include one garage parking space with your rental. Street parking in our area is also very easy. Street parking can be tight when the White Sox are playing as we are close to the ball park, but even then, parking is easier than most areas of our city.

More facts about Our Rentals: Our daily newspaper, the Chicago Sun Times recently reported that our neighborhood was voted the best place to trick or treat based on the safety and the family atmosphere of our area. This is what they had to say.

The best neighborhood for trick-or-treating in Chicago? Bridgeport, says a real estate web site that says it factored in where a kid's likely to get 'the most candy, with the least walking and minimal safety risks.'

Bridgeport gets props from Zillow dot com as 'really a family neighborhood.'

Guests need to be 30 years of age. We don't rent our apartments for parties of any kind. Occasionally we will make slight exceptions on the age limit for responsible adults who are not coming here to party. Our guests appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment We also don't rent to groups of students of any age regardless of whether they are chaperoned by an adult. .

The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 people in 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes make slight adjustments on these limits with prior approval.

AN IMPORTANT NEW DEVELOPMENT CONCERNING VACATION RENTALS IN CHICAGO.

The City of Chicago has a new ordinance that regulates vacation rentals.

We are a legal vacation rental and our license number is 2074660.

Enforcement of this Ordinance has begun. Unlicensed properties can be shut down by the city and/or their condo association at any time. For these and other reasons, we recommend that you book your rental with a licensed Vacation Rental Owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My family of four (parents plus two pre-teen daughters) stayed at Bob's place for a week during spring break. We were able to enjoy the comfort and privacy of a home that provides luxury amenities and do all the sightseeing (museums, zoos, aquarium, Sky Deck, Navy Pier, Blue Man Group) we wanted without breaking the bank - and we still had an extra bedroom! The things we enjoyed most about Bob's place: 1) hot tub, 2) rooftop deck, 3) luxury shower, 4) well equipped kitchen, 5) local neighborhood restaurants (we recommend Kathy's for breakfast sandwiches and Rico Bene's for delivery Italian & great Chicago hotdogs!), 6) convenience of location to highway and downtown (we could get everywhere we wanted to go in 10-20 mins), 7) garage parking. When you stay at Bob's place, he provides you with a ton of very thorough pre-trip information and tips that will help you get the most out of your experience while being cost conscious. More...

We have mapped out many of our great attractions. They are all within a 10-15 minute drive or a short train ride of 2-4 stops. Please scroll the map to the north and you can see just how close we are to everything. Baseball fans will love how close we are to White Sox games

Bob --PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FIRST purchased this apartment in 2000

Ours is a very safe neighborhood and very close to our city center. Our guests love that they can get anywhere in the city within 10-20 minutes.

You will love our deck with the amazing view of the Chicago city skyline, our hot tub, and our huge showers with multiple Grohe Body Sprays. You will also love how easy it is to park and to get around the city.

We are ½ mile from the I-94 Dan Ryan Expressway. It is a 3 mile/5 minute drive to Lake Shore Drive and a few miles from there to the Museums, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue shopping and every major attraction in this city.

When we lived in this building ourselves, we would always be able to get to the lakefront from our garage in 10 to 15 minutes as long as there wasn’t rush hour traffic or a game or concert at Soldier Field. Even then, we would take Michigan Avenue, State Street, or one of the other side roads and still make great travel time to our city center.

Ours is a quiet, safe, and friendly family neighborhood. It’s not real trendy, but you can save a fortune on casual dining or drink prices if you want to eat locally some of the time during you visit. You can park easily too. If you want to visit our 5 star restaurants or nightclubs, they are a quick 10-20 minute drive or cab ride away.

FEELS LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
This place really felt like home, was very well equipped and very comfortable for our family of five. The location was nice and a short drive to downtown. Surrounding neighborhood seemed safe and was fun to walk through. When we come back to Chicago this will be the place we stay. Communication between us and the owners was outstanding.

GREAT PROPERTY IN BRIDGEPORT

  • 5 of 5
Used property for four days. It is well-maintained and very comfortable with ample space to spread out yourself and your things. A great value. You get plenty of advance prep about the location and the neighborhood. Kitchen is well-supplied and everything is in good order. Having a grill in the backyard is a nice plus.

Access is easy from Midway Airport (take Orange Line, change to a bus, and then take a short walk). Access from O'Hare involves minimal transfers, but get updates on transit due to Red Line construction closure that starts at Cermak, one stop north of Sox/35th, your closest Red Line stop.

My group was not there while the Sox had home games, so depend on other reviews concerning traffic and noise.

GREAT STAY - PERFECT FOR MCCORMICK CTR.

  • 5 of 5
All around great place and much cheaper than any hotel in the area. Great amenities and easy to find. The neighborhood is residential, very clean, very professional. Public transportation is a breeze, the L is nearby and there are multiple cab services.

The bathroom was awesome, the condo was toasty (it was zero degrees when we stayed) and quiet. The linens were all clean and fresh. Bob has books around the condo with suggestions on food to eat and attractions for you to visit. We ordered pizza from one of the menus and it was perfect.

We didn't really hit any attractions since this was a business trip for a trade show. However it was really easy to get to McCormick Center from here. We had a truck which wouldn't fit in the garage but on street parking was easy to find.

For a place like Chicago this could be rented out for so much more than it is, it's a great deal and works for just about anyone.

HOLIDAY IN CHICAGO 2012

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed in this rental from December 23-December 28 and it is awesome!! Great price. Great location. This rental worked perfectly for my husband and I and our two daughters, 13 and 10. It was nice to get a three bedroom for this price. Everything that you need is here, the bus stop is just a quick walk and the train station is in walking distance as well. Bob has all kinds of information in the rental that helps you navigate the city via public transportation, restaurant and attraction information and safety tips. These little things were very helpful. There is a closet stocked with all kinds of extra toiletries in case something is left at home.There are plenty dishes in the kitches, along with several tea assortments, spices, etc. You will feel very much at home here. This house is very comfortable. The beds are splendid. I was very happy to see plenty of extra linens and pillows in the closet of the master bedroom. I've stayed in many places that offer two pillows per bed only, and I am a big pillow fan, so this was a major perk. The shower was fantastic, it was kind of depressing going back home to my plain boring shower. The closets are large and open, plenty of hangers. We only went up to the roof deck once as it was pretty cold up there, but the view is really nice. The hot tub is great, very private. All in all, I don't have one negative complaint. Bob is very friendly and accomodating to your needs. Oh, and the picture of Jerry Garcia in the living room is pretty great. :) Thank you Bob for making the Bruce holidays a memorable experience. My husband and I anticipate a return in the summer, so hopefully this wonderful rental will be available.

GREAT HOUSE, COMFORTABLE AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
I can only recommend this rental !

We are a group of six postgrads attending conference in McCormick Place and stayed at this house for a week. The house is very clean, comfortable and spacious with 3 rooms. The house and the kitchen are well equipped and you have everything you need. The bathroom is good and the additional hot tub is great! The rental fee is reasonable (esp. for a group of 6).

It takes 10-15 min to walk from the house to the CTA station, which is fine in the daytime. And it only takes 4-5 CTA stops to get to the downtown/loop. If you get home late in the night, instead of using the CTA, you might want to take a cab and it will only take around 10-15 mins to get home from the downtown/loop.

Overall, it is a great, if not perfect, house and we will stay in this house when we visit Chicago again !

We don't rent our apartments for parties or gatherings of any kind. Noise late at night or excessive noise anytime is very disturbing to our neighbors and other guests, so our rentals are really not a good fit for the very late night or very hard partying expect a quiet environment crowd. Our guests appreciate that we have a quiet and peaceful environment. The maximum capacity of the apartment is 6 people in 3 queen beds (and an air bed that can be set up for one extra sleeping space). We will sometimes make slight adjustments on these limits with our prior approval only.
