What originally attracted me to this property was it's close proximity to the Chicago lakefront, Wrigley Field, and easy access to public transportation. Minutes in a cab to downtown, walk to the train, catch a bus at the end of the block, and less than a mile walk to the Cubs stadium. In this neighborhood I can walk to coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, the gym, and other unique shops. I can get most anywhere without needing a car. The building is quiet on a beautiful block. This property is perfect for couples and small families wanting great access to all this city has to offer while feeling like you are living there not just visiting.

Great spot!

This is a great location for Chicago visitors! The bus system could not be more convenient- being at either end of the block and leading downtown- and the apartment is less than 100 yards from the beach and an amazing running/biking path along the water. The apartment is very roomy with a great kitchen, sitting area, and bathroom. Johnny is so easy to work with and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this location to sightseers and longer stay visitors, like myself.

JUST THE RIGHT SPOT FOR OUR LITTLE GETAWAY!!!

Thanks to Johnny, a wonderful host, we had a terrific place to rest weary heads at the end of each fabulous day spent exploring Chicago!!! The apartment had everything we needed and was located in a lovely residential area close to the lake. Although we spent most of our time in downtown Chicago and areas like Hyde Park and Oak Park, we took some time to saunter along Broadway near the apartment and have brunch in a local restaurant....it almost felt as if we actually lived in Chicago!!! We hope to return to the city some day...there is so much to see and the people are very friendly. Tip: the third weekend in October there is a fabulous free public festival organized by the Architectural Foundation offering behind-the-scenes access to 150 buildings across Chicago. Check it out online at openhousechicago.org....it's an amazing opportunity. Thanks again, Johnny, for all your help and organization!

Great place at a great location!!

We stayed at this condo over the past weekend and we were very happy with our choice.
The condo is very nice and the location is fabulous. But one of the best parts was dealing with the owner....Johnny. I have never had an experience such as this where the owner was so intent on making sure that the entire stay was as pleasant as was absolute possible. We will for sure come back to Chicago and this condo if we are able and we look forward to dealing with Johnny again in the future.

Great Property, Excellent Location, Helpful Owner!

Our stay in this property went extremely well and the owner was exceptionally helpful and proactive in making sure that the experience was a positive one. Clean unit, comfortably furnished, nice neighborhood with easy access to Broadway and Belmont Streets. The location of the condo, one block off Lakeshore, made access to the lake easy. Bus stops and taxi service were also very accessible from this location. Owner furnished everything we needed for a relaxing stay including sheets, towels, an abundance of kitchen items right down to paper goods and a nice bottle of wine! Follow up after stay was appreciated and the security deposit was returned promptly. I would definitely stay in this property on future visits to Chicago.
