Good value, good property

We stayed at this property the week of August 14, 2011. The apartment itself had plenty of room, was well furnished and had all the comforts of home. The walk to the metro was as convenient as advertised, and the neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods between the apartment and downtown Chicago were all wonderful discoveries.
Only 'complaints' (which were not inconveniences for us specifically but worth nothing for other potential renters):
- Bathroom is clean, but small, with an old style tube that requires you to step in and out of the tub
- The metro line runs over the road, just a few houses down from the location - on arrival, you'll be startled by how loud the train is: when you close the door and are inside, you'll barely notice it after about an hour.
- If you're planning on spending a lot of time downtown, or around other areas in Chicago, the train ride can be crowded at peak times, and is about 30-40 mins to downtown - if you time your rides poorly, you may be standing for a while.
Bottom line, great place, extremely accommodating and friendly owner, and would stay again on a future visit. Thanks again Victoria!
