Great property and location.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying at your home. The location was great as our son was visiting the campus. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen and den were very relaxing. Hope to stay again!

Fantastic condo for visiting U Chicago and environs!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while visiting U Chicago as well as downtown Chicago. Well appointed and comfortable beds, perfect kitchen (and deck grill), comfortable great room and dining area for hanging out with family. Garage is great - and for larger cars such as ours, easy free and safe street parking made coming and going easy. Highly recommended, we will be back!

Great Spot with awesome amenities

  • 5 of 5

We were at a trade show in Chicago and chose Isabels place to stay.

Super location with awesome amenities, real clean and well supplied.

She pays a lot of attention to detail and it was one of the best locations I have stayed at to date.

I highly recommend for any occasion.

I will be back next year.

Great townhouse!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Isabel for a great stay! We appreciated the stroller you brought by very much and thank you for being so helpful so quickly! This townhouse has everything you need-stocked really well. It's only a 15 minute drive to downtown Chicago. The one car garage is nice to have-it is small but one car did fit. VERY clean on arrival. Nice big book there with stuff to do and places to go. There is a security guard across the street which was nice! Isabel was great-answered any call quickly and super friendly. She had a pack and play for my 15 month old too! Thanks again-hopefully we will be back for another visit:)

Very Pleased!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to have found this property! The location is so convenient to the University of Chicago, museums, grocery store. Convenient parking for 1 vehicle in the unit's single garage is provided. We felt very safe and secure once tucked in for the night. A notebook was clearly displayed for unit instructions, near-by places to go, and check out steps to complete. This host was very available for communication. She was accommodating when reasonable requests were made and answered us timely and in a friendly manner. Her property provided ALL the things one would need while staying multiple nights away from home. The entire unit was very clean and provided up to date appliances. The kitchen was well stocked for your first morning!! The beds were warm and comfortable inside spacious bedrooms with plenty of closets. The bathrooms were so clean and well placed for multiple travelers. There was room to socialize with travel mates in the common area on a mid-level; or recluse to rest when desired. We had a wonderful visit to Chicago and want to thank Isabel for being a huge part of making our family weekend a success. We would highly recommend this property. We will try to stay with her in the future. THANK YOU!!!

This townhouse is located at the University of Chicago Campus which is home of to many cultural activities as well as cafes, shops and restaurants, as well as world class museums. It is near the lake shore with access to beaches and marinas. It is beautiful to bike to downtown on the lakefront park, entirely on car free bike paths along the lake shore (about 30 minute leisurely ride). This home is ideal for visiting scholars and visiting families of University of Chicago students. Its location is also convenient for people attending conventions: it is a very short (15 minutes) and direct drive to McCormick Place - Chicago's largest Convention center. If you prefer to go by bike, it takes about 30 minutes on safe and beautiful panoramic lakefront bike paths. Public golf course is found at nearby Jackson Park. Last but not least, this home is also an affordable accommodation for families visiting Chicago.
