Guestbook comments from the owner
Four couples shared two apartments had a fabulous time in Chicago! This location is EXCELLENT within easy walking distance to many popular bars and restaurants. The property is lovely and worked well for our group. Also close to great walking along the lake. We will definitely be back!

We 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.

UPSCALE LOCATION NEAR EVERYTHING CHICAGO!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I selected Villa Verdone due to it's location, but had no idea how wonderful it truly would be. Although situated on a charming tree lined Gold Coast street of million doller estates, we were only a half block from fantastic restaurants, nightclubs and shopping on Rush Street, and the beginning of Magnificent Mile shopping on Michigan Ave is only one block south.

The apartment was decorated in Asian furnishings, original art and a gas fireplace in the bedroom. Kitchen and bath were very new and in granite. We liked the Lemongrass soaps and plush sheets as well. Large TV, wifi, blow dryer and iron were all appreciated and Michael answered all of our questions to help with train info, restaurants, etc. We will visit here again.

QUICK WEEKEND IN CHICAGO WITH TWO KIDS

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location! The lake was a block away and Michigan Ave. was a mere 1/2 block. Easy access to so many great stores and restaurants. Comfortable bed and very adequate kitchen. We didn't spend too much time in the apartment - but we liked that it was nice and dark, so the kids slept in. The only thing lacking were small things - we ran out of toilet paper and couldn't find any and there wasn't hand soap (there was some in the shower, so we used that.) Other than that - great place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of my private Eurasian style garden apartment in downtown Chicago's million $ Gold Coast neighborhood. The new Lemongrass soaps seem to be a major hit with our guests as is the fully equipped kitchen and coffee. We take great pride in this flat with it's imported furnishings, original art, and free wireless. Looking forward to hosting you again in the future.

VILLA VERDONE/ CEDAR ST - GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is a home away from home for me while in Chicago for work. It's on a quiet street yet a stones throw to the lake and a lot of great shops. Look forward to my next stay, thanks! JW
