We have a 60 inch widescreen HDTV with a surround sound and Bose speakers with a subwoofer for enjoying sports and movies. Our deck with the Chicago City Skyline view (closed in winter when there is snow and ice) is something that you won't forget. The next photo in the ad is our 5 star hot tub. It's your new best friend after a day of travel, sightseeing, or business. These are all great places to relax.

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

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.

This apartment has 2 bedrooms and 3 queen beds. The 3rd queen bed is a Jennifer Brand sleeper sofa that is in our huge living/entertainment room. Our living room is at the far end of the apartment and is private

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 .

Guestbook comments from the owner
Although this is one of our newer ads that began in 2011, we have been operating our rentals since October 2007.



Please see our many reviews at our other Home Away Listing # 225815



Here is one of the guest comments from our early days.



By Natalie, Las Vegas



This place is definitely a great bargain and well worth the money. I can say it is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. It is very big with all the extras you can imagine: big comfy beds, spa shower (like a massage), Internet, laundry, and more. It is a home, not just an empty rental. It is also VERY well stocked with necessities. It is in a safe neighborhood very close to public transportation. One of the biggest perks is the truly kind and helpful owner, who always answers his phone and helps you with anything you need. I'd stay for his helpfulness alone. I really recommend this place!!!

We are two life long friends who bought this building to live in, renovated it with our comfort in mind, and later converted it to a vacation rental.

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

Our area is safe and very close to everything in Chicago. Our local restaurants and shops are moderately priced compared to the trendier areas. This is a family neighborhood.

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.

YES, LUXURY AND VALUE!

  • 5 of 5
Very clean and organized. Beds were so comfortable, slept well! Shower is awesome, and can't go wrong with the large hot tub, just know that it is shared with the unit downstairs. The skyline view is very nice, the upper deck is wonderful. We were worried about the neighborhood, but we felt safe. Parking was so easy, even with the ball games all weekend. Having a garage was great, too! Overall, very lovely condo!

AWESOME LOCATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented out the top apartment recently and were very pleased with everything! The location was awesome right by 35th/Sox stop on the red line and South Halsted Street was about 3 blocks away for the buses. The place had everything you needed a full kitchen with all the pots, pans, cups, utensils...etc etc. The roof top deck was great along with the fantastic indoor hot tub(make sure you crack the windows open in there it gets steamy!). The bathroom was fun also, HUGE shower and steam bath! We had 6 of us staying in the place and plenty of room for all of us. It is very nice that they have an extra half bath in the basement to use also. We didn't have a car but if you do they have a garage where you can park one car per unit. When we arrived the apartment was nice and clean and fully stocked. Kathy's Deli is right around the corner and Schaller's Pump is right up the street...great food at both spots!!! The owners of this building are wonderful and so nice! We all would love to come back and stay here again!!!!

LONG WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I met "halfway" - me from Alaska and he from England - for a long weekend in Chicago. We absolutely loved staying in this apartment. The hot tub is great, the rooftop deck is great, and steam shower amazing. Situated about ten minutes S of the South Loop area, 5 minute walk from White Sox stadium and less than an hour by train from the airport. My only complaint would be I wish there were some restaurants closer, but you're so close to the bus stop and train station that we were able to get anywhere easily. We utilized the BBQ and full kitchen to make dinner and breakfast every day. Overall, definitely recommended. We had a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very nice comments Phoebe. We do have a few 4 star restaurants in our immediate area, but most of our local restaurants are great Italian, Chinese, Mexican, or Pizza/sandwich places. I lived in the area for 17 years and for the days when you don't want 5 star dining, which is very available in our downtown city center, you can save a fortune eating in our local area and enjoy some great and authentic Chicago food.

VERY COMFORTABLE, SAFE, AND CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN AND MCCORMICK PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This apartment (upstairs) was perfect for our business trip. We were only a short drive to McCormick Place where we had a conference, and we were not far from other interesting spots in Chicago: Chinatown is just north, and the sights of downtown Chicago are a short five-to-ten minute drive. There are several lovely pubs in the neighborhood, and we felt safe walking to them. We went to Cork and Kerry at the Park, Shinnick's pub (which boasts the original old bar) and Schaller's Pump, a pub/restaurant from the 1800s and the friendliest staff around.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The shower was awesome!! We didn't use the hot tub, but we did go on the roof and the view was spectacular (although a bit cold in October). The stairs are pretty steep but there is a downstairs apartment run by the same person for anyone with accessibility needs. Bob was very friendly and helpful, and the apartment has a book with tons of information on the area and transportation. We had a car and parked on the street; there was always parking available and it seemed pretty secure. If you are looking to stay in Chicago for fun or especially for any thing at McCormick Place, this is a great choice!

NICE APARTMENT, HELPFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bob's place for four nights in August 2013. Everything was as described, and Bob was incredibly helpful and thorough -- he even has a Youtube video orientation to the apartment. We enjoyed the hot tub and the large TV. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The neighborhood was very nice to walk around and we enjoyed meals at a couple of the local restaurants that Bob recommended. We were able to easily drive to downtown Chicago. We didn't try taking public transportation from the neighborhood as the L was under construction at the time.

RENTAL FOR MY SON'S WEDDING

Rental for my son's wedding
  • 5 of 5
The Chicago rental was exactly what we needed to accommodate my son's family of six, my parents and my sister for my eldest son's wedding. The location was close to the wedding venue and many of the attractions downtown. The two car garage and parking passes were very helpful as we entered and exited the neighborhood during the White Sox games. The owners supplied both units with everything we needed! The video tours were most helpful prior to our arrival. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone visiting the Chicago area.
