Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I spent a week in Chicago in June and just loved our stay. We come to Chicago every summer, as my husband lived here in teh late 70's, and this was our favorite trip yet. We usually stay in a hotel downtown, but we just loved being part of the city and being in such a great area. We ate at 4 or 5 different fantastic restaurants and walked to each one of them. One was better than the next. Steve, the owner was very attentive and helped us out immediately when we couldn't figure out the internet conection. It was so nice to have a full kitchen where we would eat before exploring the city. I highly recommend staying here, you will very pleased you did.

I am a Realtor who specializes in the Wicker Park/ Bucktown/ Ukranian Village area. I have resided in the area for 10 years, and just love it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I can point out some fun under the radar activities that you will just love.

Steve purchased this condo in 2007

I fell in love with this property when I listed it for sale for a client. At the time I was trying to find a building to house a bed and breakfast. The bed and breakfast never materialized, but I like to keep the dream alive with this vacation rental unit

5 minute walk to the Blue line station, Dozens of restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres etc.

QUIET GREAT LOCATION BUT VERY VERY DUSTY AND DESPERATELY NEEDED A PROPER CLEANING!!!

  • 1 of 5
place would have been great value for money but it was so dusty especially when the heat was turned on it was horrible, I came down with a sinus infection, the owner did come and clean the one vent but didn't clear the cobwebs out of the cloths closet, or the dusty bathroom, there was a sock left by the previous renters under the bed and when we pulled it out thinking it was ours it was a mass of dust and hair!!! Don't think dogs and cats were cleaned up after they stayed there. the kitchen was great and so was the location, great restaurants and close to the metro but probably wouldn't stay again

SOME NICE FEATURES BUT NEEDS DEEP CLEANING

  • 2 of 5
First what I liked: The location is excellent, the neighborhood nice, the size perfect, and the kitchen is nicely-appointed with appliances, dishes, and utensils. The owner promptly responded with directions on accessing the unit. What I didn't like: The unit desperately needs a deep cleaning. While the bedding and towels were clean, the floors/windows/window sills/blinds were really grimy. There were lots of dead bugs and several live centipedes in evidence. The blinds in the front windows don't reach to the bottom sill, and thus anyone can see in especially after dark when the lights in the unit are on. The toilet tank cover doesn't fit - it appears to be just a board or something like that. There was at least one piece of plywood/wallboard nailed up to cover a hole or something. The description indicates that there is a gas grill but I didn't see one. The patio furniture was really grimy with what appeared to be bird droppings. I love the location and would stay here again and/or recommend it to others only if I were first assured that it had been thoroughly cleaned.

CLOSE TO ALL THINGS AWESOME

  • 4 of 5
We stayed four nights during Lollapalooza. No regrets about staying out of downtown and in Wicker Park, it is such a charming neighbourhood with all the amenities. The condo served as a quiet and comfortable home base, walking distance to the blue line, groceries, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The neighbours within the unit were all super friendly and helpful, and the owner was easy to contact and very accommodating.
For late night eats and pints, The Piece was an excellent choice, and for the best breakfast EVER (seriously, I dare you to find better) go to the Bongo room.

CUTE AND CLEAN!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a couple of days for our anniversary. We couldn't believe how quiet it was! Had a small issue with the cable, but Steve was on top of it and it was fixed in no time. The location and neighborhood was pretty nice also; only a few blocks from two different blue line stops, Starbucks, a park, lots of unique shops and restaurants (Big Star was a big hit with us). Parking on the street by the apartment is great- didn't have any trouble finding a spot (right out front), and not a lot of extra traffic. However, we drove to Dunkin Donuts a couple of blocks away and my new car got keyed in the parking lot. Other than that, we had a good time!

PERFECT LOCATION AND PRICE!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this property and it was perfect for experiencing Chicago's Wicker Park area. It was a short walk to great shops and restaurants on Milwaukee and Division streets and a very short cab ride to the United Center. Probably one of the nicest things about staying here was the ample free street parking for which the owner thoughtfully provided the daily parking passes needed. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Chicago as the property was clean, well stocked and perfectly priced.
