About Michael

I live in San Francisco and Cedar Street is our family estate. This 1880's Georgian was lovingly restored four years ago to serve numerous family relatives while visiting Chicago. We offer our three chic suites when not in town. Walk to Oak Beach, Rush Street nightlife and Magnificent Mile shopping.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed in the Villa Verdone apartment with some friends in early October for a week and it was everything it promised to be and more! The location is unbeatable with the restaurants and bars of Rush street around the corner and the north end of downtown with the Hancock tower etc a few minutes walk away. The apartment itself is stylish and very comfortable as well as surprisingly quiet despite being so central. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, particularly those visiting Chicago for the first time and keen to be centrally located. Michael was always very helpful and responded to any queries promptly.

I have no worries in recommending this rental. The location alone deserves 5 stars. Once our overstuffed luggage was in our third floor rental we were able to negotiate our third floor apartment easily. Now honestly for a non stair climber its a steep climb from the second to third floor but once you are there it is worth it. Restaurants, shopping, wandering about are right there outside your door. Our family of 5 were more than comfortable and the "nest" thermostat was easy to use and keep us warm and cozy. Kitchen was fully stocked and neat and tidy. Bathrooms were also stocked and I grabbed a couple more towels from laundry room on main floor so we were covered during morning getting ready to get out the door. Sofa was cozy and we had plenty of seating for 5 adults. We look forward to another visit soon.....maybe tomorrow?

Great Location and Access to all Things Chicago

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful location. Very responsive landlord. Nice flats - we rented two floors. Love the short walk to the lakeshore, Michigan Avenue, the EL and good restaurants. Only issues were an after hours, track star toddler on floor above; almost no building associated parking; and some basic maintenance needed (e.g. kitchen cabinet doors adjustment, furniture repair). Really had a great time.

A Good Choice for a Chicago Stay

  • 4 of 5
We booked this property based on its size (2 bedrooms and a pull-out sofa sleeper) and proximity to our daughter's wedding. We were very pleased on both accounts. It is located on a VERY quiet street with great restaurants a block to the west and the Mag Mile a block to the east. There is also a reasonably priced parking area a block west. We rented the 3rd floor unit which was very spacious and even had a deck off one bedroom. The owner's pride in his property is very evident. In communication with him, he was very gracious and anxious to make our stay the best it could possibly be. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wishing a pleasant, quiet, comfortable stay in an atmosphere above what a hotel offers.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time in Chicago! Our place could not have been better. We were within walking distance to almost everything...shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing, etc. Our condo was beautiful, and in such a neat neighborhood. It truly was perfect!
