Overview

Chicago Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths Sleeps 6

We have 2 great apartments. We have an amazing deck with an incredible skyline view of Chicago (closed in winter when there is snow and ice) and a fantastic huge hot tub. They are both great place to relax after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business.

We are experienced owners who have been offering our rentals for 7 years now. We have over 200 reviews at the different sites that we list at, and we are proud to say that they are all 4 or 5 stars. You will be very comfortable and feel at home in our rentals.

We also have a huge 5 feet x 3.5 feet shower that features Grohe body sprays and a steambath generator. Our guests say that it is like a massage.

We are offering discounts for our available dates in March and April. The best rates are for 4 night or longer rentals. Please email or call with the dates that you are interested in.

This site's quotable rates are often wrong. We set our rates the best we can, but our per night rates are lower for longer rentals and our rates vary depending on special events such as trade shows. Depending on the season, the nightly rate shown is either our lowest rate or an average rate (4-5 nights). Our last minute. special rates have deep discounts on extra nights and this site's rate system can't do any of those things. Shorter rentals of 3 or 4 nights are going to be priced higher than what this site quotes you. Summer rates are more accurate as discounted rates are less likely except at the last minute. Our rates vary from $120 to $260 per night and $875 to $1,675 per week and include all taxes and fees. Our lowest rates are in winter. Rates depend on the timing and length of your stay. There is no one rate. Longer rentals have the best per night rates.

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.

Below is the ad for our 2nd floor apartment .

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

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. We have fully stocked modern kitchens.

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.

Our rentals are 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our apartments are available for lodging only. We do not rent our apartments for parties or gatherings of any kind. The guest renting the apartment needs to be 30 years of age. 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.

Our cancellation policy is a $100 cancellation fee if 45 days or more from arrival, and a $250 fee from 45 to 30 days from arrival, Cancellation less than 30 days from arrival are non refundable unless we can re-rent the dates to someone else. Then we would refund whatever we get for as many of those dates as we can rent at last minute rates, minus the applicable cancellation fee.

About Bob --PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FIRST

We are two lifelong friends who bought this building to live in, remodeled it completely for ourselves, and later converted it to a vacation rental.

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

Why Bob --PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FIRST chose Chicago

Our building is very close to everything in Chicago, including our convention center, McCormick Place. You are in a quiet and safe neighborhood, but the city center and all of our major attractions are very close. It's the best of both worlds.

What makes this apartment unique

You will love our deck with the amazing view of the Chicago city skyline, our hot tub, and our huge steam bath shower with multiple Grohe Body Sprays. It is like a massage.

We are ½ mile from the I-94 Dan Ryan Expressway. It is a 5 minute drive to Lake Shore Drive and another 10-15 minutes 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 and all of our major attractions in 10 to 20 minutes. If there is a concert, or major festival on the lakefront. we can show you a local shortcut to make great travel time to our city center and skip any traffic.

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...

Perfect for McCormick Show

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our team working a show at McCormick Center. It was clean, well equipped, and ready when we arrived. The hot tub certainly was nice after being on our feet all day. The bonus for us was the neighborhood restaurants. I had no idea that Bridgeport would deliver such convenience and choices to fill up after working all day. Great place and location. We are booking next year now.

Enjoyed my stay

  • of 5

My family enjoyed our stay. Had everything we needed. Normally we stay with family when we visit Chicago but decided to try something different and rent a place. We have no regrets. It was perfect and we will definitely consider renting again in the future.

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.

Notes:
The guest renting the apartment must be 25 years of age or older. If the guests are under 30, we expect responsible adults. Our rentals are not a good fit for very hard partiers and very late nights. 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.
