Apartment excellent.

  • 5 of 5
We found the apartment to be excellent. It was spacious, clean and in a very nice area. The apartment catered well for our needs and Carl was a friendly and helpful owner. He accommodated some fairly last minute changes (our daughter ended up staying with us) without any fuss and indeed, without extra cost which was unexpected and appreciated.
We would happily recommend this accommodation to others
We made excellent use of the local restaurants, used the Loop system extensively, visited the Willis Tower, the zoo, the Planetarium, took the architecture boat ride and visited the many lovely gardens. We had a lovely time and were greatly impressed by Chicago.

Stay in August 2014

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in this condo in August of 2014. The unit is in a historical building which has three other vacation rental condos. The building is owned by Carl. Apparently there was full occupancy while we were there but we did not see or hear anyone else in the building.
The building is located in a great neighborhood. I felt safe the entire stay. The condo is near the L train so you can hear each train. It is pretty loud but the price you pay to be close to the train. I was able to get used to it.
The furnishings were beautiful. The condo was well appointed and clean. It was spacious enough to spread out, we are a family of four.
The kitchen was nice but pretty bare bones so if you want to cook you will need to provide your own spices and oil. There are plenty of dishes, pots and pans. I also noticed saran wrap and coffee filters but that was about it.
My only suggested improvements would be to provide a DVD player or get a smart tv. There was basic cable provided.

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.
