Bright, airy space

  • 5 of 5

This property is bright and airy and beautifully decorated. The owner was delightful and very helpful. It is very convenient to the Brown Line and you can walk to the pharmacy, shops and restaurants. Street parking is easy to find close by should you be driving. I spent three weeks here and was able to make use of the well-equipped kitchen.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The garden unit was everything I wanted for our visit to Chicago, and more. This is a beautiful vintage building; the apartment is spacious, full of character, and furnished with much care. Victoria, the owner, was great - very accommodating and flexible during the booking process. She welcomed us warmly and we felt at home the minute we stepped in. She was never too far away in case we thought we needed anything. It's a lovely neighbourhood and despite the unseasonal cold weather, it was a pleasant walk to the L, Trader Joe's, bus stops, CVS, Starbucks. As we often had a 'late start' to our days, hopping on the Brown Line at mid-morning meant we avoided rush hour. Even if you are not headed to the Loop, there are stops along the way worth exploring: Belmont, Armitage, Paulina, Southport (thanks, Victoria!).

Highly recommended for anyone who wants to feel instantly local in a great city like Chicago.

A Winner

  • 5 of 5

When I travel, I like to immerse myself in the rhythm of a location. I love Chicago, and this serene, convenient apartment allowed me to experience it fully at my own pace. The L is close and easy to use -- pick up a 7-day pass and the city is yours. The neighborhood itself is pleasant and walkable, and I enjoyed heading out to Trader Joe's for food and wine. Yes, you will hear the train rumble through, but for me, that's part of the atmosphere, and certainly not a bother.

I agree with past reviewers that you need a little athleticism to step in and out of the tub, but this was not a major issue for me (and might not even matter at all if you are taller than my 5'3"!). It might prove difficult for someone with limited mobility, however.

In short, I have very fond memories of my stay in this terrific space, and hope to return soon. I would happily recommend it to anyone...unless the week in question interferes with one of MY visits, in which case I want dibs!
