ONE WEEK AT THE LEAVITT VACATION APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and child stayed at Carl's Leavitt Vacation Apartment for one glorious week in mid July. I lived in Lincoln Square when I met my wife and it was our anniversary week we stayed at Carl's second floor walk up. We felt at home immediately. We went to all our favorite spots in Lincoln Square and found some new hangouts too. We cooked and did laundry, just like we lived there. It was so cozy and homey and we will return next year for our 10th anniversary. Thanks Carl

LOVE LOVE LOVE

The apartment was incredibly clean, beds were very comfortable, kitchen had everything you could need, furniture and decor really made it feel like a home. The neighborhood was amazing: farmers market twice a week two blocks away, el stop two blocks away, street parking was much better than I anticipated, loaded with families, felt safe walking around, and we went to Welles park everyday with our kids, restaurants nearby we're awesome and kid friendly. I couldn't find one bad word to say about this place or Carl if I tried!

SIMPLY THE BEST...

  • 5 of 5
What can I say? There are great VRBO hosts and then there is Carl, who goes so above and beyond the call of duty that he must make other VRBO property owners mad. The rental is absolutely lovely, the beds great, the couch super comfortable, The clawfoot tub is gorgeous and super comfortable and he provides he with everything you could possibly need for a wonderful stay. The pictures of the place look great, but really... you do not know until you see it in person. BEAUTIFUL! As somebody that loves great architecture this put a smile on my face.

For us it was very serendipitous because the big crazy event we were in town for was just down the street. This made it heavenly, especially as a place to escape from the good times and revelry as well (if that makes sense)

Carl was super responsive to all of our needs, including a crazy 5 hour delay we had (terrible!). I don't dole out 5 stars lightly... this place rules. Great apartment in one of my favorite cities. SALUT Carl, you are dignified.

GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
Carl was very prompt in replying to my inquiry about the apartment's availability, and he was forthright about organizing a check-in time. He was there to meet us at the apartment and showed us around. Inside the apartment he had very clear instructions about which keys went where, how to connect to the free WIFI, and how to use the laundry room. The apartment is very tastefully decorated, very very clean, and very comfortable. There are 2 bedrooms: one off the living room, and the other off the kitchen. The beds were comfortable and had clean linens, the closets were a good size and were empty except for plenty of hangers, the living room was comfortable with good cable TV and the dining room was spacious. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook a good meal with coffee afterwards. It, too, like the rest of the apartment was in excellent condition and immaculately clean. The bathroom was very clean and comfortable, too. The location is very close to Lincoln Avenue, where there are lots of bars and restaurants of all types. It is also close to the "El" train and a huge park with two playgrounds and 5 baseball fields. There was always street parking available but most of the time, we had to drive around and look for a spot. I had rented a big SUV, so it made parking harder but I was always able to find a spot. The neighborhood is very residential and appeared very safe. There was a very nice Jewel grocery store about 6 blocks away. Overall, our stay was outstanding. We have stayed at 2 other vacation rental apartments and by far, this was the cleanest and neatest. I highly recommended renting this apartment from Carl.

Owner's Response: Guest and family were great...the Guest had several questions before booking and was delighted that she decided to book with me. There are several options for vacation rentals in the city and I try very hard to offer a vacation rental that meets or exceeds the Guest's expectations. Thank you so much for the wonderful review and for taking time from a busy life to share your experience with others! Sincerely, Carl

Very clean and comfortable. Loved all of the special touches and the location. I can't wait to stay there again. Carl welcomed me and personally showed me all I needed to know to make my stay relaxing and fun. The furniture was very nice and comfortable. I would recommend this VRBO to all.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
Wow!  The pictures just don't do these apartments justice!
The apartments are about 100yrs old and have been decorated to a very high standard, with some really nice pieces of furniture, lights and wall hangings. They were cleaned and prepared to a high standard and were very comfortable.
Carl seems to have thought of everything, and if not he is very quick to respond to emails or phone calls. 
We stayed for a very relaxing two weeks in October 2013 while visiting our daughter and her family. 
The apartments are close to the up-market Lincoln Square, a lovely area with small unique and interesting shops and plenty on nice places to eat.
A ride to Chicago's main shopping area is very quick and cheap ( $2.50 ) on the nearby elevated train system.

Sincerely,
