Good Property

  • 4 of 5

I really liked it but my kids were less than happy with the beds in the secondary bedrooms. There were also odd things missing, like a toaster and limited regular water glasses. Overall, I thought it was very comfortable and in a fabulous location. Paul was wonderfully helpful.

Fun and great stay

  • 5 of 5

The Lincoln park home had everything you needed for a fantastic Chicago weekend. The house was immaculate in its cleanleness and was very comfortable. Paul brought up some extra air mattresses for some extra friends and family we had coming into town on the second night of our stay. Paul also was full of recommendations for restaurants and bars around the city. Paul made it clear that we would only see him if we needed something from him in the basement apartment and that was absolutely true. The house felt very private for the length of our stay.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. I came to chicago with 6 friends from undergrad. we are all professionals and married so we want to be comfortable and this place was able to accomodate us. The downstairs is large with several couches. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs. Since there were six of us, Paul set up his large, queen aerobeds for us - in fact, he offered to do this and they were there when I got there. The other beds are also big and comfortable. Linens were clean and nice too. The bathrooms are large and one of the showers even has a steam option. Overall, this was one of the best experiences I've had on VRBO. I will definitely come back. some other general notes. Paul is very nice and knows chicago very well and happy to help with restaurants or advice. Likewise, there is a garage and PAul has several parking passes. This is great for chicago since parking is a nightmare. Lastly, the outside deck is huge and was great for our morning coffee and just relaxing in the afternoon after going out and about. I would definitely recommend staying here and will definitely go back. It would be difficult to go elsewhere.
