Why William Harty chose Chicago

The location is perfect. I wanted to be close to the lake, airport and Evanston. I am a fanatic for wonderful architechture and Rogers Park is known for the late 20's grand style. Only 10 miles from O'Hare Field. Midway Airport is 22 miles away. Just a 15 minute ride on the Union Pacific train to the heart of the city. This train stop is only 6 blocks from Residence on the Avenue. Ravinia Park, the out door concert venue can be reached in 20 minutes by this same train.The Red line will take you to Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park Zoo & to down town.

What makes this condo unique

I love the location. All that the city has to offer is so reachable. Lake Shore Drive is so close and can take me to the Magnificient mile (Michigan Avenue)Or head the other direction where LSD becomes Sheridan Road & view the beautiful mansions along the way to the Chicago Botanical Garden..........All along the the lake front. I enjoy as well the peacefulness ofthe beautiful North Shore towns of Evanston, Willmette, Winnetka & Glencoe Having the lake front so close is also a benefit.

Lovely home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and the pictures do not fully capture the essence of how beautiful the interior is of this property! The kitchen was well stocked, some toiletries were available in the bathrooms, and the place was spotless. We were glad we took advantage of the parking option, as spots on the street are very hard to come by. The property manager was very personable and made sure that we knew where local restaurants and stores were located (also in a handy folio they had prepared for us in the unit).

Very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over a long weekend for Northwestern graduation. Apartment is conveniently located less than 3 miles from campus. The 4 of us were comfortable, but I would not put more than 4 people in this apartment, as the sofa bed and 2nd bedroom beds are quite small. Check-in was very easy and convenient, and the provided parking spot was definitely needed, as the street parking was really full most of the time. Apartment felt secure, beds were really comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed for a short stay. The only negative was there is no place to walk to (restaurants, etc) and the El is about a 20 minute walk away. Overall a good experience.

Excellent Property

  • 4 of 5

This property was very nice, was well-stocked and the property manager was very helpful. He went the extra mile and contacted us immediately when we had left some belongings in the condo.

We appreciated the parking space because street parking was hard to come by.

We would definitely stay here again. I give it 4 stars and not 5 because I rarely give 5!

Very nice place.

  • 4 of 5

The property is very nice, the beds were comfortable (the sofa bed wasn't bad...for a sofa bed). The kitchen was well stocked as well as all the linens. There was a slight issue regarding our arrival time but it worked out. Ross was very helpful with information about the area grocery stores and restaurants as well as any other questions we had. Very nice place, would recommend to family and friends.

Florida family on winter trip to Chicago

  • 5 of 5

The Vintage Garden Condo we stayed in was very comfortable, very warm and clean, the interior decor makes you feel like your at a luxury resort. The rates are very reasonable and we would recommend to anyone. We were glad we brought our chihuahua, she had a great time. The Property Manager was well prepared for our arrival and parking is convenient. We look forward to staying again on a future trip to Chicago.
