Excellent, safe neighbourhood for visiting with kids

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in springtime at Andrea's apartment, and found it to be an excellent choice travelling with children. As first time visitors to Chicago, coming long distance from New Zealand, with two kids aged 10 and 8, we really wanted a safe, quiet neighbourhood in a place with a bit of space for the family, but still easy access transport into the major attractions. This property ticked all those boxes, and we were pleased not to be staying in the hectic heart of the Loop or Magnificent mile, although both were easily accessible from the buses which regularly leave at the end of the road. The bus is about 100 yards walk at most, and the nice brownstone neighbourhood always felt safe, even at night.

The family enjoyed a walk along the lakefront on a nice day, and Lincoln Park zoo on foot. Also within about 10–15 mins walk is Wrigley Field for a Cubs game, and Harvest whole foods for groceries (or can Uber it easily). The apartment itself is spacious and very well appointed, with the beautiful ensuite bathroom off the master bedroom a particular highlight! Andrea is very responsive on email and phone, full of helpful tips are such as restaurant and other local needs, and was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended for family visitors.

Loved the location. So close to Wrigley and what a nice and safe neighborhood. Condo was very roomy with all amenities. Everything close by. Highly recommend. Oh, and Andrea, the owner, was very helpful and ever so responsive.

Spacious, clean condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo exceeded our expectations. We had three couples stay two nights - easy (20 min) walk to Wrigley, nice neighborhoods the entire way, well stocked kitchen, very clean. Only surprise was that the one parking space that comes with the condo would only fit a compact car and their is no street parking (it is all permit). We paid $23 for 24 hours in a parking lot about 2 blocks away.

We were very happy with this light and airy, quiet and spacious modern apartment. Enjoyed the express bus service into town at the end of the road.

Great home in a peaceful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Bittersweet Place condo. Andrea was very helpful and friendly. The condo was clean, spacious, and well stocked with towels for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. It was a 15 minute walk to the 'El' station and only 2 minutes to the bus stop, so we were able to get everywhere we wanted to go. It took about 30-40 minutes to get downtown. We did not have a car, but a parking space was available right in front of the unit. We loved the quiet and pretty neighborhood. We spent most of our evenings sitting on the back patio. We walked to Whole Foods, a pizzeria, and Montrose Beach as well. We cooked all our breakfasts and one dinner in the large kitchen. We loved our visit to Chicago- 4 days was not enough! We would definitely stay here again and reccommend it to others.

Perfect flat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 daughters, 2 sons-in-law, and I stayed at this Chicago condo while in town for a family reunion. The location was perfect for running along the beach, attending a Cubs game, and finding lots of great restaurants nearby. The accommodations were perfect, and the owner provided lots of helpful information. We had a great time!
