About Family Retreat Chicago

I am a Commercial/Residential Real Estate Broker for Chicago area and a homeowner of the property. I started working in the Real Estate business 10 years ago and bought this house as an investment property with hopes to flip it and make some money, but as the market progressed to the down side I decided to start something new and join the vacation rental market. The house has a lot of heart and hard work in it. My family was working with the developer closely to have everything this house might need for our renters to feel like at home away from home.

Family Retreat Chicago purchased this house in 2006

Why Family Retreat Chicago chose Chicago

It is very close to any city attractions, Grocery store, public transportation, McCormick Place, US Cellular Field, China Town, South Loop, Grand Park, Lake.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the sauna and pool table.

Family Vacation in Chicago

  • 3 of 5
This place fit the needs of our extended family of 12 aged 2 to 72 years old. The kitchen counter and DR table allowed our family to all eat at one time. We also used the deck for dining.
The location provides close access to the CTA for museums, etc. but also means constant motor noise. The neighborhood is a mix of fairly new residential mixed with heavy industrial which is not pleasant.
We got take out from Chinatown and also ate dinner there one night.
Family members enjoying walking and running in the neighborhood: 3 miles to Lake Michigan, 2 miles Comiskey Park and former Mayor Daley's home.
The Wifi does not work well. There are lines across the TV.
The place lacks some basics like soap (bar soap, dish detergent, sponges for washing dishes, etc) and paper products (enough toilet paper and paper towels).

Note to owner: the place needs some painting, nicks on furniture repaired, and basement curtain rod tension repaired.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in Chicago and our house. I am sorry for any inconveniences. I wish I would have known you needed some instructions to find the dish soap refill for the counter bottle and the hand soaps in all the bathrooms, during your stay. We do not provide soap bars and we informed you before your arrival. The paper towels and toilet paper are always in the house with one extra roll. Since we have different number of people and different length of stays, we leave a standard amount of supplies and leave up to the guests to purchase additional supplies if needed. The basement blinds usually stays down for the privacy reasons and since it is not moved a lot, it gets a bit harder to pick it up. But you always have a choice to close and open the blinds with the control stick which works fine. The place gets the refreshing treatment every year after the peek season ( Jan, Feb). Thats when we paint, repair and change things if needed. I will keep your notes in mind when we evaluate the house and decide what needs to be done.
Thank you

Luv the place!
My college friends and I have used VRBO in the past for get- togethers: fom San Fran to MI every 3 months... and we fell in love with with this place! It has ample parking space, and the house itself was large enough that we didn't have to sacrifice our own individual space. The neighborhood was quiet, and it was a stone's throw away from all the parks and museums, and downtown. The kids went to the museums, while the adults went shopping downtown... eventhough that it was near in the center of the city, the house feels like "home". It was also accessible by bus and the El. Vaeda was very accommodating: she was very helpful in guiding us during our weekend get-away. We recommend this place to everyone who wants to come to Chicago, and experience city life to its finest!

Great place to stay in Chicago

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 9 adults, an executive coach and 8 candidates to MBA visiting MBA programs in Chicago and Ann Arbor.
Good: the house was gorgeous. the neighborhood seem a little out of the way at the beginning but when you are driving it results in the middle of everything and very convenient. A friend that used public transportation to visit us told me that it was easy to get there also by public transportation but I recommend having a car, not only for the house but for the city. It was very clean. The floors perfect. The living very nice. the dinning room great. The kitchen precious. Great china, cuttlery and rest of the equipment. the rooms were very nice. Great bedspreads, clean bathrooms, great towels, good lighting on the house.
Problems: there were not enough linens in the house. There should be at least 3 more complete sets of sheets and blankets. They did not leave a nice welcoming gift to us like in San Francisco (wine) so we missed it. We could never operate the alarm system, there should be better instructions. There was not any bathroom soap and that was not nice either. One expects soap at least if not shampoo and conditioner. There should be at least two additional chairs for the dinning table, as it can sit 10-12 people but there are not more chairs. I would have loved to find some place mats for the dining table to protect it. I missed some additional kitchen knifes and an icecream scoop.

Great Stay for Game at Soldier Field

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 12 guys looking for a convenient place to stay for a game at Soldier Field. This property was perfect for us for many reasons.

Perhaps most important for us, it is very conveniently located as it is located on the Orange Line (from Midway to Downtown) and a only short walk to Dominic's (full grocery store.) The train ride to town was cheap and easy and we used it liberally.

Also, the house was very clean and had everything we needed throughout the weekend. In fact, it was exactly as advertised, dealings with the owner/rentor were very easy, and everyone had a great time.

I would not hesitate to stay there again, especially with a larger group.

A family wedding in Chicago

  • 5 of 5
Our son was getting married in Chicago so our family of 12 needed a place to stay. After looking through the home away properties and reading the reviews we chose to stay here.

We needed a place to hold a reception the night before the wedding with the brides family. The open main floor plan was perfect. There were 18 of us who had a buffet meal.

Everything was as pictured. Vaida was excellent to deal with. We had trouble with one of the two hot water heaters and contacted her on Friday evening. She had a repair crew out on Saturday. Because of the two water heaters we were still able to get all of our showers in the two other bathrooms-( only the downstairs was affected.)

We enjoyed watching the Cardinals play in one of their playoff games in the media room.

We would definitely stay here again. It was more affordable than getting three separate hotel rooms, plus we were able to fix many of our meals in the kitchen.
There are two ovens. Also, note that there are two washers and two dryers if you have a large group.

We were able to go to the Field Museum on the morning before the wedding. It took us about 15 minutes to get there. We also had to pick up some guest from the Midway Airport. It was about the same. The wedding was at the Chicago Cultural Center and it was about 20 minutes.

We used the GPS to find the Dominics grocery store. It has everything.

Just a note- this is a four level unit with stairs going up to the front door. Though most of us in our party were agile my parents, both in their 70's would have preferred no steps. Not complaining, just an observation if this would present a problem for your group.

Have a great time in Chicago!!!
