Overview

North Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom located steps away from Wrigley Field and the Red Line

This renovated apartment is in an oasis while enjoying all the excitement that Wrigleyville and Chicago have to offer! Walk to Wrigley Field, CTA Red Line, nightlife, bars, restaurants and more!

Lots of space in an awesome location - and a beautiful space!

Sleeping arrangements entail three bedrooms, each with it's own queen bed, and a semi-private alcove with a queen bed.

Prepare meals in your gourmet kitchen, featuring granite counter tops, excellent appliances, dining table, and all your needed implements.

Relax in your spacious living room, featuring super cozy couches, HDTV with premium cable package, or spend time on the spacious deck off the back! Wifi is included!

The bathroom is excellently renovated, and you'll find plenty of mirrors throughout the apartment to help you look your best!

This is your comfortable home - and all of it in the middle of the best neighborhood in Chicago!

While others struggle with traffic and crowds, leaving the city after a Cubs game or a night out on the town, smile as you stroll the HALF BLOCK from Wrigley and Clark Street to your home!

The Red Line L Train - the main North-South train line in Chicago - is only two blocks away, operating 24 hours a day!

Wrigleyville always has something going on! Enjoy the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, or go drinking on Clark Street. Dance on Halsted Street, or run along Lake Michigan on the Lakefront Path. Ride the El to downtown Chicago, or walk to lots of bars, restaurants, live performances, and more. It's all right here when you stay with me!

Walkscore rates this location a 91/100 for walkability! It cannot get any easier to get around!

Please note: this is a single floor of a three-floor building. Another listing looks very similar and is a different floor - if you're interested in booking both units, or all three available units, let me know!

Trains and buses are plentiful in the area - you can get just about anywhere. There's no need for a car, but parking is available for an extra charge via the SpotHero website/app.

Three parking spots are available behind the house via the SpotHero website/app! Pricing and availability vary, and can be booked far ahead of time; we recommend you book a parking spot immediately after confirming your stay!

Sorry, we do not have air mattresses available.

For weekend stays (Friday-Saturday nights) from March to October, typically I have a four-night minimum.

I know you may want to ask if I will make an exception - there is an easy way to check! Look at my booking calendar, look at your check-in date, and look at the dates before and after it: are there fewer than three nights available in either direction?

Is it even POSSIBLE to book four nights involving that Friday or Saturday night?

If it is NOT POSSIBLE TO BOOK FOUR NIGHTS, then great, you may book a stay for less than four nights! Ask away!

If YES, it IS POSSIBLE TO BOOK FOUR NIGHTS, then no, there won't be an exception. Please don't ask.

----------

Why Steven Lawrence chose Chicago

The neighborhood is what makes this property unique - you can't stay any closer to the home of the Cubs! There aren't very many hotels around here, but there sure is a lot to do! Why stay downtown when you can stay right near the action?

Great Apartment, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent 4 nights here and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! The location was unreal (you can see Wrigley Field from the front door and back porch. The description of the location and the apartment itself is completely accurate. We had a group of 7 and everyone slept comfortably. The place was very clean when we arrived and the direction on the best way/place to get into the apartment was very clear. The owners left a "renters manual" that not only made everything extremely easy on our end, it provided some direction on great places to visit!

We would definitely recommend renting here if you want to be around the Wrigleyville area!

Property was great!

  • 5 of 5

Property was great. We enjoyed everything about the condo, location, towels, and clean sheets. Owner was easy to work with and made the stay that much more enjoyable. Only 1 bathroom for groups can be a little interesting though.

Groovy time in Wrigleyville

  • 5 of 5

Came to town with family and friends for the July 4th weekend. Caught a Cubbies game and the Grateful Dead shows. From the welcome gift to the local knowledge of restaurants, shopping and music, Steve was a host par excellence. Great neighborhood, very nice accommodations, and just a magical stay.

Sparsely furnished. Stove did not work in one unit

  • 1 of 5

Location is great, the furnishings are quite minimal. Some bedrooms didn't have a lamp. One room had a chest held together with tape. The stove did not work in one of the units, and was so dirty in the other one that when we turned on the oven, the unit filled with smoke. Add to that that the smoke alarms did NOT go off, so they didn't work either. A cleaning person let himself in during our stay - to use the laundry. He kept coming in to check on the status of the wash/dry cycle. I found this a bit of a privacy issue.

Maybe this is all one can expect in Chicago? I hope not - we love visiting there.

Owner's Response: It's disappointing that some of these issues were not brought to my attention during the stay, as they could have been easily corrected right away. I pride myself on being available and responsive to my guest's needs. Missing items taken by previous guests (i.e. lamps) have now been replaced. The stove has been fixed and cleaned. Batteries have been replaced in the smoke detectors. The tape has been removed. It was on a new set of drawers, and was meant to hold the drawer shut during transit. With regards to the cleaning crew, we allowed an early check in with the understanding that the cleaning crew would still be finishing their work while a guest was there. This was clearly communicated beforehand.

DODGERS @wrigley

  • 5 of 5

I gave the rental 5 stars because it was more than I expected. The place was less than a block from the stadium and within walking distance to the bars/ pubs and train (according to the locals it was the nicest part of the town). We traveled as a group of 8 men and were concerned about the listing at first. The listing states 3 bedrooms 1 bath but sleeps 8. Come to find out upon check-in that there were 3 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms and a separate futon (needless to say we all slept comfortable). The place is a great place to stay and I would definately recommend it to anyone from families to big groups of guys. We had a blast there and got to see the DODGERS beat the CUBS 3 out of 4 games. Only problem we had was not having an iron but there was a CVS a few blocks away and that fixed that. This was my first booking and I was a little worried about getting a hold of the owner they did take a little bit of time to get back to me but when they did everything worked out perfect. In his defense he did state he was on vacation at the time.

Owner's Response: To be clear, this listing does in fact have 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. The building I manage has 3 units. 2 are 3 bedroom units. 1 is a 5 bedroom unit. In this particular case, the unit these guests had booked was not ready due to damage from a previous guest. I upgraded them to our larger 5 bedroom unit at no extra charge.
