We went through the Licensing process and have our License number #236988 for VRBO rental units in Chicago.
It has gorgeous hardwood floors, a new kitchen with granite countertops, a remodeled bathroom, and a gorgeous picture window that floors the living room with light.
We live upstairs, so we'll be there to help with restaurant recommendations, directions and advice on seeing the sights.
Think of us as your personal tour guide and concierge service!
Jamie purchased this apartment in 2002
Ten years ago we were driving through the neighborhood when we spotted the home of our dreams. We are urbanites at heart, but we wanted a single-family home that offered the charm of old Chicago but was close the beating heart of the city. This place had it all!
You can walk to everything. Every morning we hop on our bikes and rides through the zoo to Lake Michigan and up the shoreline to our office in the Loop.
In the mornings you can grab coffee at the corner Starbucks or walk through historic Old Town to one of the three bakeries nearby.
If you're traveling on business, you can be at your downtown meeting within five to 10 minutes by cab or 15 to 20 minutes by 'L'.
In short, if you're looking for a cozy apartment that is 30 to 50 percent less expensive than a hotel and allows you to live like one of the natives, this is it!
Our stay was wonderful. The location is fantastic, the apartment is comfortable (and lovely!). Mark was very helpful and gave us a wonderful restaurant recommendation. Definitely a place for a return visit.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for the new year's eve weekend and found the apartment to be exactly what we needed. The location is perfect, only blocks away from the "L" train and the bus stop, and with a private garage in the back of the house, its so easy to park your car and tour Chicago. Restaurants, bars and little grocers dot the neighborhood as well as a local theater about a 10 minute walk away.
While we never met Jamie and her husband, they were very accommodating and quick to answer any questions we had. The apartment is comfortable with a perfect little kitchen for a quick breakfast or late night snack. We will definitely plan to stay here again!
We arrived in Lincoln Park and were met with a warm reception from Mark and Jamie. The garden apartment was everything they described and more. A cozy warm setting within minutes of the Lincoln Park Zoo where we enjoyed the holiday lights with the grandkids. Easily accessible to everything and all the comforts of home - we never used the car. We especially appreciated the secure parking and easy access. Another visit is planned for 2015!
The apartment was perfect for us -- a romantic weekend without kids to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The location was ideal -- we walked everywhere, found wonderful little restaurants, enjoyed the fall colors, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. After 7 hours out and about each day, we would pick up a bottle of wine, cheese and dessert, and have a quiet evening indoors.
The apartment was very clean, updated and comfortable. The only drawback was that we could hear footsteps upstairs (a little one running back and forth?), and piano practice sounded like it was in the room with us. But, honestly, it was quieter than being home with our own teens.
Jamie was friendly and helpful - we felt right at home.
This apartment is spacious, very clean, appears recently remodeled and does not feel like a basement apartment.. Nice neighborhood. Easy bus ride to the Loop. We cooked almost all dinners and Jaime provided extra pans. We enjoyed the very nice bikes and took a long ride to the Field Museum via the lakeshore. There is a Treasure Island supermarket on Wells, a few blocks away. Second City is within walking distance. Very nice headquarters for exploring Chicago. If we return to Chicago, we would definitely stay here.
The apartment was clean, very convenient to wonderful attractions within Lincoln Park and plenty of restaurants all around. There was plenty of space for my husband and I and our two young daughters. It was a home away from home and we will be back! Great price for location in comparison to other hotels in the area and owner was wonderful to work with.
Lincoln Park and Old Town;
Gorgeous, leafy streets, beautiful victorian homes, and the world-famous Lincoln Park zoo and North Avenue beachfront are all within strolling distance.
For the business traveler, the Loop and conference hotels are a 5-minute cab ride, 10-minute commute on the 'L' or half-hour to 45-minute walk.
The famed Second City Comedy Club is three blocks away. The country's most famous rib restaurant— Twin Anchors — is down the block.
For shoppers, Chicago's Magnificent Mile is a bike ride away (and we'll give you the bike for free!)
