Overview

About the property

Wonderful condo in West Town - clean, comfy, quiet, private. Gourmet kitchen, balcony with views of downtown. Fully and tastefully furnished. 1 block to blue line trains, 2 stops to downtown/loop. Walk to great restaurant & bars. Wicker Park, River North, Old Town. 15 min bus to Water Tower! If you have a car, park for free in the attached garage and enjoy easy nearby access to I90/94.

This is a clean, modern, comfortable apartment on top floor of a walkup 3 flat overlooking a large beautiful park with playground. All modern conveniences, and comfortable furnishings. Sleeps 4 in bedrooms + 1-2 on couch. Tastefully decorated and well-furnished, you will feel at home here.

Guest Access

1 car garage parking, large screen w/ cable tv, high speed wireless internet. Gas appliances and fully-stocked gourmet kitchen. Towels and linens are of course included. Master bedroom has queen bed, walk-in closet, en suite bathroom with jacuzzi tub. Second bedroom has full-size bed, spacious closet, and its own bathroom with stand-up shower.

The Neighborhood

West Town is a vibrant, safe, easy neighborhood. It is a nice mix of cultures with an emphasis on arts, dining, and night life. A little more spread out, so street parking is not difficult. It's convenient location allows easy access to anywhere in the city. Easy walk to great West Town restaurants and bars. Eckhart Park offers a swimming pool, workout facility, basketball, softball, and playground.

Other Things to Note

- If you don't mind an extra 10-15 minute drive, this is a great location if you are in town for events at McCormick Place or downtown hotels, and don't want the craziness and expense of staying downtown.

- this is my primary residence which I rent when I travel for work. There will be personal effects in the space. However, you can expect that the kitchenware, linens, etc. are much better than your average rental.

- The space is not childproof. Of course, children are welcome, but you are responsible to keep them out of anything which may be harmful to them. There is a pack and play for your convenience.

- no smoking indoors, rowdy behavior, or loud parties will be tolerated.

Huge, convenient condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is huge and comfortable. The location is ideal. I got a Venture card and relied on public transportation. Everything you need is within a short walk or bus ride.

The neighborhood is vibrant with lots of interesting restaurants. The park across the street is nice when the weather cooperates.

If you are considering this VRBO, stop. Just book it.

  • 5 of 5

Brett was a superb host - we loved this place! Close to town, yet just far enough away. I only wish we would have had more time. We are already trying to plan a return trip! Brett provided transport information as a delayed flight resulted in a rush hour arrival - spot on instructions - so easy to get to from Midway! And the parking space in the garage was the bomb! If you are going to move around via public transport buy a day pass rather than each trip.

I would suggest the hop on and hop off bus trip - great fun! And prepare for an entire day to explore each of the following: Museum of Science and Industry, Art Institute and Field Museum.

The condo itself is as described. We had plenty of space to hang out, and there were several dining options within walking distance. The kitchen was well stocked and there wasn't anything that we "wished" we had. The beds were comfortable and both the sheets and bath towels were super soft!

If you are considering this VRBO, stop. Just book it. You won't regret it. The only regret I have is writing this review so the next time I want to "book it", there will be nothing available. :-)
