Just North of Chicago, close to the Lake and Northwestern University and Purple Line El and the Metra trains to Downtown Chicago. Beautiful vintage furnished apartment can sleep up to 5. Custom marble bath and Jacuzzi. Laundry in the basement. Fresh Linens/Towels and Toiletries. Continental Breakfast included. WiFi and Cable TV, DVD.
My husband and I rented this apartment for 2 1/2 weeks. The apartment is better suited for a stay of a couple of days rather than the longer stay we had. The kitchen was very small with little counter space for cooking, had no dishwasher, and lacked some basic kitchen tools for cooking from scratch. There was also little space to store dishes and pots and pans, which made it more difficult to cook.
The other drawbacks were an small bathroom, and an uncomfortable, soft mattress. Also, I expected the apartment to be cleaned more professionally because there is a cleaning fee. Instead, there was dust and cobwebs under the furniture and the bathroom was not scoured as it should have been.
That said, the owner is very nice and did try to supply items requested, and the owner did leave some food and cleaning supplies for us. The apartment is also located on a quiet street and very conveniently located to downtown Evanston, and public transportation. We were able to bike or walk downtown and to nice restaurants and Whole Foods. Being 1/2 mile from the Metra made it easy to get to downtown Chicago for some fun exploration.
This apartment was cozy and quiet, a nice walk to the train to downtown or for us, Wrigley Field! We originally wanted to stay in Wrigleyville but after staying here, my husband wants to buy a summer home in Evanston.
This apartment is perfect. 1) very warm and cozy, 2) much bigger than I looks on site, 3) clean, 4) easy parking, 5) great wireless reception, ) hospitable (owners left eggs, OJ, bread, coffee, tea, bananas etc.. 7) comfortable bed and sheets - very walkable community (much needed after long drive. 8) hot shower etc.. Would absolutely come back - we had three people but 5-6 could fit comfortably.
We rented this apartment to be near to our niece who was getting married. It was the perfect location as we could walk to most places we wanted in Evanston.
It was such a nice touch to arrive after being up quite early to find the owner's parents had supplied us with the basics such as milk, eggs, bread, coffee, tea, and fruit! Once we arrived, we were able to make ourselves a meal and relax before going out for groceries.
As others had mentioned, this apartment is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood with very friendly people.
It is quieter at night than our home that is in a rural area!
I would definitely recommend this apartment for others to rent. It is exactly as it appears in the pictures and you will feel right at home!
Apartment was very nice-sized, comfortable and well equipped. Nice location on a nice street with friendly neighbors! The battery in our car died and apartment owner was available to help, as well as several neighbors. Would definitely stay here again.
I visit Chicago and Evanston often. Most of my very large, close knit family lives there. I needed to be close to them but I did not want to be together every minute. I could have stayed at a hotel downtown. I chose this place because the photo showed a room full of books and a desk. Those are the kind of rooms that remind me of home.
The apartment was as described. It was peaceful and quiet. I felt comfortable right away. The owner's parents were so welcoming, kind and thoughtful. I hope to go there again next year. I had a wonderful time.
Just second building west of Ridge Ave from the Monroe St Intersection (Traffic Light and CTA Bus Stop for Howard Red Line and to the Northwestern University Campus); and only 2 blocks south of Main Street. Walk to the Main Street CTA Purple Line and Metra Train Stations. Walk to the Lake and Restaurants and Coffee Shops.
