BEST DECK IN TOWN NEXT TO SUBWAY STATION WEEKDAY DISCOUNTS

Chicago Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enjoy all that Chicago has to offer and then come home and relax on the huge (20 x20) deck with the best skyline views in the city. This is a charming Condo in the perfect location. Have the neighborhood feel with dozens of great places to go for a bite to eat within a couple blocks, and also explore Chicago's tourist highights which are all very easily accessible from the Subway station that is literally 30 feet from the front door.

The unit has all the amenities you will need for a weekend getaway or a month long stay. It features an upgraded kitchen with granite counters, brand new stainless appliances, dishwasher, laundry in unit, a 2 person jetted jacuzzi soaking tub, a large dining area, a nice desk and workspace with inspiring skyline views, 48 in. flat screen TV, expanded cable, Wi-Fi, Steam Shower and a BBQ grill on the massive private deck.

The location is ideal. Take the Blue line door to door from O'Hare, it is 30 feet to the Chicago Ave Subway (no noise) station. The Chicago Ave. Bus is also 30 feet away. 3 Blocks to the Halsted Bus which will take you north to Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Wrigley Field, etc and south to Greektown and the West Loop. The Property is 1 mile from the Sears (Willis Tower), 1 mile from the John Hancock Building, but in a great little neighborhood away from the hustle, bustle and tourists of the Loop and River North. If you are driving, we are located 1 block to the Exit/Entrance to the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/ 94).

The Layout of the Unit is great. There is a lot of common living space, with a nice dining area off of the Updated Kitchen. Another large space set up as an office with a desk facing the skyline. This leads to teh huge living rooom with seating for at least 10 around the large flat screen TV. The Downstairs Bathroom holds the huge Jetted soaking tub. Upstairs has the 2 bedrooms, one of which is 24x14. The large Master bedroom holds a King sized bed and 2 twin beds, and has awesome views of the city. The smaller private bedroom has a Queen bed and a nice desk area. The upstairs bathroom features new upgraded vanity and tile and an enclosed steam shower. Laundry is found in the upstairs bath. The highlight is the monster deck out the back door of the second floor. Enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine before you head out, or have a great Chicago night staying in with friends and grilling out.

I lived in this unit for 10 years, so if you have any questions about the location or the unit, please ask. I love this city, and I want all of my guests to enjooy themselves too!

I am a Realtor who specializes in the Wicker Park/ Bucktown/ Ukranian Village area. I have resided in the area for 13 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. This unit was actually my home for 10 years, and I hope you love staying there as much as I enjoyed it!!

Steve purchased this condo in 2001

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

Check out the pictures of the deck. Its absolutely huge (20 x20). Have friends and family over for a Barbeque, or just enjoy the sunrise and sunset over the gorgeous skyline.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed the deck - great view of the Chiacgo skyline and nice flowers. My only criticism (and this is pretty nit picky) is the deck is about the same height as the surrounding street lights. So they tend to wash out the night skyline. If the rail around the deck could be extended up about a foot - this would block the lights from your sightline when you are sitting on the deck and really make the night skyline pop.

The apartment is well decorated with artwork and pictures. Love the hardwood floors and stairs. There probably should be a hand rail on the stairs to the second floor. The upstairs steam shower is wonderful - but the doors do need fixing. Great tile work in the bathrooms. A few of the electrical outlets need work. Overall a great place - just needs some small things tended to.

Make some time to visit the church. I've been to Europe and have seen The Vatican & Notre Dame. This church isn't as big but it's right up there in beauty. Don't miss it.

Overall a great visit to Chiacgo. Wish we had more time to enjoy the apartment and the area. We are kicking ourselves - we didn't visit the gilato place. We'll have to do that on our next visit.

BACK TO CHICAGO

  • 4 of 5
My family loved the place, and especially the deck. There could be a couple of updates and maintenance items done to make the stay better.

The upstairs shower doors need to be fixed/replaced, and there is no shower curtain on the downstairs tub/shower.

Be ready to climb stairs.

Great location if you want to use public transportation.

Enjoy...a great place to be.

GREAT LOCATION - REALLY NICE PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
this second floor walkup was great for our family. The kitchen is excellent, and provided a great place to prepare family meals. The view and ambience were awesome!
We highly recommend.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We were in Chicago for a tournament and we decided, as a team, to rent a house, rather than rent hotels. It would save us in the long run. We found this property on VRBO and the owner was very nice and returned emails very quickly.

We loved the property. It was perfect for the 7 of us (3 adults, 4 kids). The kids shared the room with all the bunk beds, while the adults bunked in the extra room and the sofa beds. The place is very quaint and very homey - which is exactly what we were looking for. The best part about this property is that the subway (Blue Line) is literally steps away. Not only was the subway close, but, it's very close to a lot of other things. CVS was our "go-to" for a lot of things we forgot to bring with us as well as Dunkin Donuts (both across the street) for our morning coffee!

The only downfall is that when I emailed the owner regarding the empty propane tank for the BBQ, I was told that I was responsible for purchasing the propane, which I didn't think was very fair, since it was an amenity offered with the property. There was also no offer to reimburse me. So, whoever was in the house after us, you're welcome! ;) Also, if you've got bad knees, prepare yourself! There is a very steep set of stairs leading to the property... Great exercise though!

GORGEOUS!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely awesome place! Great location, great view of the city, beautiful place! The owner was easily reachable and very helpful! Everything worked well. The closeness to the blue line was extremely convenient. Dunkin donuts across the street and gelato around the corner. Really couldn't beat it. Beds were comfy. We had 10 people stay there, so much more efficient than a bunch of hotel rooms. Again, owner was awesome, place was amazing, location was perfect!

EXCELLENT APARTMENT FOR FRIENDS AND LOCATION IS CONVENIENT TO MANY NEIGHBORHOODS

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here from 6/25 to 6/28 with 6 other girls and it was perfect for us! We all slept in the big bedroom with the 2 bunk bed sets and the kind bed - we believe it's a California King. It was great to all be in one room and get ready together. We used the patio for breakfast and sitting outside everyday and the view is great. The downstairs also had enough couches and chairs to fit us. We didn't take the blue line (metro) but we were able to walk into Downtown towards the Loop in under half an hour and were close to the Damen Street/ N Wilwaukee strip. The street is nice and everything is on the corner - Subeay, Dunking Donuts, CVS which has it's own liquore store inside, pizzeria, and two cafes. The cafe right next door has amazing food. This isn't a place for a romantic weekend or people who have hard time getting up the stairs. It's perfect for a group of people who don't mind to share one big bedroom. There is a small second bedroom, we used it to store suitcases and towels. Definitely recommend staying here.
