Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place worked out great for our mini family vacation. There was plenty of room for five adults and three young children. It was super close to the blue line and conveniently close to the grocery store and restaurants. Hans was very accommodating and easy to stay in touch with. I would definitely stay here again - it was a great experience and it made for a fun trip!

Wonderful Stay in the Windy city

  • 5 of 5

This property worked wonderfully for our group of eight adults who were in town for several college basketball games in the area. We had plenty of room, loved having the three bathrooms, and the kitchen area was large enough for us to enjoy making several meals there. The proximity of the property to the Blue Line was awesome as well..only two stops to get downtown. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to others. The owner, Hans, answered all of our questions promptly which I appreciated as this was the first time I had used VRBO to rent a property. Look forward to using this site again. Thank you!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The place is pretty sweet and in a good location. When I arrived in Chicago I had no trouble finding the place. It's a five minute walk to the blue line train station so no need to rent a car while visiting the city. The place was clean and better than expected when I arrived and it easily accommodated 10 people. Hans did a great job and was very helpful when questions came up. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to visit Chicago.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Hans has a beautiful home that a group of 10 can stay comfortably! We had a girls' reunion there and everyone was so impressed of how spacious the place is. It's very close to the blue line subway and within 10-15 minutes to any of the must-see places. Hans is very nice and accommodating and very prompt to answer any questions. We will definitely be back when it's warmer! Thanks for everything, Hans!
