William Harty purchased this condo in 2003

The location is perfect. I wanted to be close to the lake, airport and Evanston. I am a fanatic for wonderful architechture and Rogers Park is known for the late 20's grand style. Only 10 miles from O'Hare Field. Midway Airport is 22 miles away. Just a 15 minute ride on the Union Pacific train to the heart of the city. This train stop is only 6 blocks from Residence on the Avenue. Ravinia Park, the out door concert venue can be reached in 20 minutes by this same train.The Red line will take you to Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park Zoo & to down town.

I love the location. All that the city has to offer is so reachable. Lake Shore Drive is so close and can take me to the Magnificient mile (Michigan Avenue)Or head the other direction where LSD becomes Sheridan Road & view the beautiful mansions along the way to the Chicago Botanical Garden..........All alon the the lake front. I enjoy as well the peacefulness ofthe beautiful North Shore towns of Evanston, Willmette, Winnetka & Glencoe Having the lake front so close is also a benefit.

CONVENIENT AND COMFORTABLE!

  • 5 of 5
We were so happily surprised when we arrived at this destination! The manager greeted us, made sure we parked safely, showed us around the property, and was very friendly. The place has everything one could possibly need and then some. It was spotless, attractive, and comfortable. We needed a place fairly close to where our son was moving from one apartment to the next, and this worked much better than being downtown. The off street parking made it easy. There was lots of info on good places to eat and shop in the area, too. Will definitely go back!

EXCELLENT VISIT

  • 5 of 5
The condo was very nice and comfortable. Access to the city was easy and the neighborhood had several useful stores within a nice walking distance. The property manager was pleasant and helpful and easy to communicate with. My communications with the owner were pleasant as well. I would highly recommend this property and I would stay here again for sure.

LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time to stay at this vacation rental! We love it! Ross has always greeted us warmly and makes sure our stay is comfortable. The condo is nicely furnished and allows us a place to relax and to cook, if we choose. This time off street parking was included at an additional charge, which we felt was very worth the extra cost ($10/day)...no trying to find parking or having to park way away from the building. Once inside the condo, everything is on one level and spacious but getting inside there are a few steps...so not truly accessible. :(

We have found the condo to be clean and well kept both times we have visited. Bath towels and bed linens are provided. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit. Hand and shower soaps have been included. We have had to purchase items such as toilet paper when we used up what was supplied, also baggies, aluminum foil, etc. Dishes, glasses and silverware are provided along with a few basic pots and pans. There is also a dishwasher, gas range, refrigerator and microwave. A grill and a smallish courtyard are available to use but that did not work into our plans on this trip.

After searching on-line for both vacation rentals and hotels, this is definitely the best deal. Close to the "L" (within approximately a 15 minute walk) makes this an easy and quiet place to stay but still allows you to be able to get anywhere you want.

We were privileged to tour the 3 bedroom unit in the same building...LOVED IT!!! There were only three of us staying this time but for a larger party, it would be well worth it!!!

I would definitely recommend this rental unit to friends or family!!!

GREAT STAY IN JUNE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautful unit for a week with our daughter while she attended tennis camp at Northwestern University in Evanston. The unit was very clean and we really enjoyed all the amenities. The check-in process was efficient; Ross, the property manager who just lives upstairs, contacted us by email and met us at the prearranged time to walk us through the unit to show us all the features as well as the outside garden area and the all important designated parking space. We made full use of the modern kitchen as we did a fair amount of cooking. We also used the Weber grill in the garden area a lot; it was quite nostalgic as we hadn't used charcoal briquets in years!! The available wireless internet worked very well and we appreciated the high speed very much; the download and upload speeds were absolutely awesome!! We took full advantage of the in unit washer and dryer since we were all very active during the day with tennis and running, The unit is only a short 10 minute drive away from the great shopping and restaurants in Evanston. We also ventured into Chicago for more shopping and visited the Shedd Aquarium in the downtown area. We would definitely recommend this unit for our friends and family but only when we don't need it for our return trips to the area!!

LOVELY GARDEN UNIT

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in your Garden Unit on Jarvis. It met all of our needs perfectly and our family and friends who visited there were all very impressed. My wife and I both agreed that whoever chose the furnishings and art share our eclectic tastes for mixing the vintage with the modern. Hopefully we can stay there again on our next stay in Chicago. Our thanks as well to Ross who greeted us upon our arrival, gave us a tour of the property and its amenities and was always available to answer any questions we had about the apartment and the neighborhood.

AMAZING APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time visiting Chicago, I chose this property because the photos look so nice, and I was not disappointed, the reality was an apartment that was very spacious, much bigger than in the photos, immaculately clean and a really good layout, Ross and Glenn the managers greeted us on our arrival and gave us a very warm welcome, they told us all we needed to know and made it clear that they would be happy to help in anyway they could, we never needed to contact them once and this was because we had everything we needed and we had clearly been given lots of info in both the folder that is in the apartment and also because they patiently answered any questions and gave us info on our arrival, this apartment was a real joy to come back to after our full days out in Chicago, we loved the underfloor heating in the bathrooms, the jacuzzi bath and spacious shower, the flat screen tv with built in dvd player in the living room, the large beds that were very comfy, an abundance of thick fluffy towels, the cooker and dishwasher worked amazingly well, the drinks feature on the American fridge was great for crushed ice and lovely cooling water to fill your bottles up for the day, there's a lovely garden out back for your use ,lovely to sit out with breakfast as there's a table and chairs for you, Chicago is the best City ever, so unique with an abundance of character, the architecture is amazing, there is so much to do, Willis tower with the glass rooms you step out into, the Navy pier, shopping outlets, six flags, museums, the beaches, magnificent mile with the water tower shopping mall, it was all so amazing, we didn't get to do everything and we stayed 11 nights, we are seriously thinking of going back next year and would have no hesitation in staying in this apartment again, it was nice feeling part of the community, the only gripe is some evenings was a bit of a struggle finding a parking space and we did get a ticket for having the car parked facing the wrong way, anyone from Europe would be oblivious to this law of having the car facing the way you are going to pull out, I suppose it makes sense when you think about it, but be aware so you don't get a ticket, that's the only gripe, everything else was perfect, thank you so much Glen, Ross and William the owner we had an unforgettable time, and hope to see you again in the very near future Jackie Mark and Damien
