About The Owner

Mark and Ashley are a husband and wife team that have one foot planted firmly in Chicago. As a former Chicago resident for 10 years, Ashley has both friends and family in Chicago. We have twins who love to visit Chicago! They both know that Dad's favorite building is the Hancock.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Chicago

There is only one Gold Coast in Chicago and this historical building is in the heart of it. Our endeavor started out with simply wanting a place to stay when we would visit and eventually use in retirement. We love Chicago and all the City has to offer...from great food, to world class shopping, to museums, architecture, sports, beaches...you name it and Chicago has it all.

What makes this condo unique

The location cannot be beat. Chicago's epicenter for nightlife is at the end of the block with fabulous restaurants like Gibson's, Tavern On Rush, Morton's, etc. coming together in a perfect triangular parklike setting. If you want to feel like a true Chicago resident in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Chicago, this is the place. The tree-lined street is a perfect prelude to your arrival at this historical building. Shopping on Michigan Avenue is just a block away as well. It's an AMAZING location!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better place to stay. Everything is as stated in the description, and more. Location is perfect; close to the beach, restaurants, and public transit. The bed is so comfortable, I want to take it home. We had a minor problem upon arrival that was handled in record time with upmost courtesy. We are excited to come back next year. Thank you.

Great Chicago Location

  • 4 of 5

This third floor walk-up apartment is perfectly situated in one of the most convenient areas of Chicago, especially for public transportation/groceries/drugstore/etc. Neighborhood and building are very quiet and safe. The city was unusually hot/humid and we stayed cool and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and apartment is well stocked. The bathtub is worn and the tub needs to be replaced. Good water pressure. The bath rug looked dirty and worn. Wish owner would remodel bathroom. Also expected personal confirmation email one week before we arrived per other VRBOs. Waiting until 3 days before we left town for access info. left us with a very uneasy feeling. Our emails for info. were not answered within 24 hrs.

Quiet and close to great shopping and food

  • 5 of 5

Very quaint and rustic third floor room space. Perfect for us and our son who loved his own area. Has everything you need to have a great time. Love the stained glass in the living room with a window seat to read by. Location is perfect for what we like to do Close to shopping , great places to eat and the beach to take long walks in the morning. Even ran into Lincoln park zoo and checked out the gibbons in the am. Will stop back again next time in Chicago

Great HOT Location - In More Ways Than One

  • 3 of 5

This brownstone was in a great location, but the central air didn't work. Since it's the third floor up, we tossed and turned all night. We couldn't get the air to go below 78 - 79 degrees; it couldn't keep up with the outside temperature. Before you stay here, be sure to find out if the C/A unit was fixed.

We loved that there was a mini kitchen with fridge and parking was across the street. However, the parking cost us more than we were originally quoted. (VRBO would not allow me to print the fees for this. Initially I had included the price, but my review was rejected.)

We would recommend this place to others, but only if the air was working. (My husband wanted to give this a two-star review because he was the most uncomfortable. I was more generous. )

Owner's Response: We feel horrible that the air conditioner decided to stop working during your stay. We have since installed a brand new air conditioning unit in this apartment and it is working great.

Great Brownstone in the heart of Chicago!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Brownstone in Chicago. We were less than 2 blocks from the Magnificent Mile & Oak Street Beach and less than a block from a bunch of really great food!! This apartment is in a prime location for our family of 4! The apartment was stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries for our 4 night stay, the apartment was very clean and we felt very secure during our stay. The apartment was a great place to call home after our long days exploring the city. We would definitely recommend this apartment for couples or small families.

Everything you want for a perfect stay in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location in a beautiful brownstone building on a quiet pedestrian street that is within walking distance of everything you need or want for a perfect Chicago stay. The apartment is beautifully designed and fully furnished and is only a half block from some of the best restaurants in Chicago. Public transport access is within a couple of blocks for the red line train and a half block to the 155 bus line downtown. I feel so fortunate that we found this great rental for our first Chicago visit.

Half a block to Oak Street Beach and around the corner from the heart of the Mag Mile. You cannot get this type of convenience by staying in Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, or South Loop. A perfect mixture of tree-lined street, neighborhood charm and being in the heart of the action that is downtown Chicago.
