Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this unit multiple times for a family gathering. The design is very open between the modern kitchen, great room, and dining room. We are able to sit our extended family at the long dining table and enjoy great meals. This year we all gathered in the great room, with the fireplace lit, and remembered funny stories from our child-raising years. The unit is always spotless clean, well-stocked, and very accommodating.

Fun City Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Jarvis Ave. The condo is exactly as advertised online. The decorating is beautiful, and it is comfortably appointed. Our family of six had plenty of room to stretch out, and the inflatable bed we found in the closet was a welcome surprise. We traveled 800 miles, and we were unsure of the exact time of arrival. Ross the caretaker was accommodating, and he was helpful regarding instructions about the area (including restaurant tips). We strongly suggest using the garage if you have a car. Parking on the street is difficult due to the large number of cars in the area. Also, having the garage available when returning to the condo late in the evening was reassuring. Our 2013 Toyota Highlander fit snugly in the garage, but anything bigger would be a problem. We noticed that some of the VRBO reviews suggest the neighborhood is unsafe. It certainly is a city neighborhood, but we did not feel unsafe. However, we had a car, and we did not need to walk about the neighborhood to find public transportation. As in any city neighborhood, use common sense and be careful. If you are going to be exploring Chicago from this great home-base, bring or rent a car.

Beware of Hidden Fees, etc.

  • 1 of 5

The property owner does charge a fee for PayPal payment. After receiving our damage deposit, fees were taken for paying via PayPal.

Contacted the owner to inquire about this fee.

He forwarded unclear verbiage under a cancellation policy in a "contract." After asking for a copy of the contract, he stopped all communication and kept the money.

About the place: The condo is attractive, nicely furnished as in the photos, the caretaker is a very nice guy, but the neighborhood is definitely questionable. Family members didn't feel safe walking to the corner store or parking cars alone, day or night -- and these are ex-college football and hockey players/coaches.

Taking a stroll to a local restaurant or grocery was definitely out of the question. Not worth the risk.

Owner's Response: There is a charge for any payments incurring deductions such as credit card fees. We do spell this out on our contract and payment information that is sent as well. When paying through VRBO it comes up and has to be accepted. This is also mentioned to guests over the phone if arranging payments. Our goal at Residence on the Avenue is to make people happy this is why we make this very clear. As you can see from our other excellent reviews guests have not had any issues with this and have been very happy with our neighborhood and great public transportation. Not to mention the high end detail that both of our beautiful, luxurious condos offer. We take great pride in our condos and are 2 of Chicago's 73 licensed Vacation Rentals. With 4 vacation rentals total we have been offering many travelers from all over the globe 5 star comfort since 2001 with our Irish Thached Cottage in County Kerry. We added Residence on the Avenue in 2009 and the Davis House in Glen Ellyn Il. in 2010. We look forward to having you as our guests.
