Simply the best place to stay!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed renting this brownstone apt. It was everything as described and more. We used to live in Chicago, and upon planning our return trip, we knew we wanted to stay here in the Goldcoast area. The apt is perfectly located since it's just a few blocks from Water Tower place and the Magnificent mile shopping, but also just a short walk to Lincoln Park and Old Town. Despite being located right in the middle of the action, the home is set off on a quiet residential street. Even on a holiday weekend, we were never awakened or disturbed by local traffic or neighbors. It was an absolute joy to be able to walk to many of the nearby restaurants and bars and simply stroll back to retire to our quiet rental.
As for the unit itself, the rental is in wonderful condition, tastefully decorated and well stocked. There are no unpleasant surprises here, the pictures displaying the unit are accurate and up to date. The living areas are roomy and the bedrooms comfortable. We used the kitchen regularly and items were in tip top shape. Traveling during the spring in Chicago can bring unexpected weather, but despite some cool evenings and one unseasonably hot day, the apartment was always comfortable. As for perks, it's a half block to Lake Michigan and there's a pedestrian underpass nearby so you can get to the bike path and Oak St beach. And finally in terms of transportation, we relied on cabs when we didn't walk. You can easily catch a cab at either end of the block, and the fares are reasonable even to Museum Park (Shedd Aquarium/Field Museum/Planetarium). Parking is a bit rough, since there's only residential street parking in front of the unit, but there are local lots just a block away if you plan on having a car.
Working with Mark and Ashley on the rental was a pleasure. They are professional, courteous and prompt. Thanks folks for such a wonderful stay! If you're looking for an ideal location with a bit more of a private setting (as opposed to a cold and sterile high rise condo rental), then look no further, I would highly recommend it!
