The interior of the unit is grand & open. The living room, dining area & kitchen over look the tree tops through the seven large windows. The finishing touch in the entertainment area is the Italin marble fireplace.

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.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
This place was larger than we initially expected and there were plenty of room for our group of 6. The kitchen was well equipped with basics and there are stores in walking distance if groceries are needed. The Red Line is also less than 1 mile away and it takes about 30-40 min on the train to get to downtown Chicago, so it's fairly convenient.
We didn't really make use of the jetted tub since the hot water wasn't really enough for both a bath and additional showers. Other than that, the master bath was definitely a plus. It was very spacious and double vanity was nice to have.

The wireless internet also worked great for us. We had a Chromecast and streamed content from our laptop/tablets while some were playing games on tablets and there were no interruptions really.

The only suggestion I would have for this property is to get a larger TV with good viewing angles. Other than that, we all really enjoyed staying here and can recommend this to anyone else considering renting.

Christmas on the North Side

  • 5 of 5
--Great location: we wanted to visit friends in both the city and suburbs, and West Rogers Park was perfect for that. Close to grocery stores
--The owner and building superintendent were each very helpful and accommodating
--There is a real pride of ownership in the condo: Christmas decorations inside and out, a well-equipped kitchen, a supplied "port-a-crib" that we set up in the walk-in closet in the master bedroom suite, a very comfortable seating area next to the gas fireplace. A spacious floor plan---it felt like home. (4 adults, 2 young children)
--The garage was a real plus given December in Chicago. We had a second automobile, and found that parking on the street was almost always available.
