About Rob

Transplanted Rhode Islander who has fallen in love with Chicago and Oak Park. I do a lot of travel and this is my apartment you'll be staying at!

Rob purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Rob chose Oak Park

Our house is in the Ridgeland Historical District and was build in 1914. One of only two homes on the block originally designed as a two flat. Scoville is a quiet tree lined street a walk from all the attractions that garnished Oak Park’s Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District the American Planning Association ranking as one of the Top 10 Best Neighborhoods in the Nation and the Village of Oak Park was voted Third Best Neighborhood in the United States.

What makes this apartment unique

Our 1200 sqft first floor apartment at 233 South Scoville Ave very comfortable, vintage home with lots of character in the heart of

Oak Park a town famous as a unique village anchored in the late 1900’s by Frank Llyod Wright’s home and studio. Oak Park is the closest western suburb of Chicago and only 8 miles to Lake Michigan and Millennium Park. The apartment is a short walk to the Green Line making it an ideal Chicago touring location or Marathon training location.

Clean, comfortable home on lovely, quiet street.

  • 4 of 5
The owner was very responsive, helpful, offering tons of tips for travel, dining and names of neighbors. The first floor flat, where we stayed has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a dining room, living room, front and back porches. The back porch is a lovely place for morning coffee. My only criticism is that we couldn't open the windows to let fresh air in (no screens) so we had to use A/C - there's one window unit to cool the whole floor. It does a decent job, but doesn't really cool off the bedrooms.

Comfortable, quiet and close

The house is very cozy and well-maintained. It's close to the train and grocery store, and has a backyard and nice front porch. It definitely has a lived-in feel.

Lovely, comfortable home in historic Oak Park neighborhood, a short train ride from Chicago

  • 5 of 5
This is a very comfortable, vintage home with lots of character, situated in a beautiful, historic neighborhood which is a short-and-safe walk from the train station and a full-service grocery store. The home is often occupied by the owner, making it different from your typical sparsely-furnished-and-decorated American vacation home. It’s not sterile like a hotel room; it’s lived-in and comfortable. Staying here was more like staying with a friend who happened to be absent, though we’ve never met the owner. We felt immediately at home. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking. The living room has plenty of seating for lounging around in the evening. The wi-fi was strong. The beds were cozy. The furniture is comfortable and meant to be used (as opposed to being for décor – something I’ve come across in vacation homes before). The owner has a fabulous assortment of art on the walls. There’s a nice yard to use when the weather is nice. Having never been to Chicago before, I initially considered downtown hotels, but since I prefer renting homes to being stuck in a crowded hotel room all evening, I checked into this and other home rentals. And am I glad I did! Staying here made a huge difference to our vacation. We fixed our own breakfasts and dinners here at the house after spending hours walking around and seeing the sights of Chicago. Having rented this wonderful home in Oak Park, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to stay in a sterile, tiny hotel room in Chicago for a similar price or more. Oak Park is easy to get to and from via car and train, too.

As the homeowner points out on VRBO, the upstairs is occupied by a lovely family. We didn’t really notice their presence much. The house is in a quiet area of single-family homes.
