Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a week while visiting relatives and site-seeing in the city. The townhouse was perfect for us (me, my wife, 14-year-old boy, 14-year-old girl, and 10-year-old boy). Perfectly clean, everything in top condition. Well-equipped kitchen. I'll mention that the garage is very small; I barely got our rental minivan in. Careful where you wander, however; there are less-than-stellar neighborhoods very close. Stay on campus and you're golden. Easy access to the Green line "L" with parking ($2/day). We have relatives in NW Indiana, so the location was ideal to get there as well as anywhere in the city. We'd definitely come here for future trips.

  • 5 of 5

Very easy access to local groceries, restaurants and bars. Beautiful and easy drive along Lake Shore Dr. to the city, Lincoln Park, etc. Property was just as described and photographed. The owner was great to work with providing items needed for a baby, which made traveling much easier.

Great, clean space. As advertised.

  • 5 of 5

The rental was clean, well stocked and just as advertised. It was the perfect place for our family to stay during our visit to Chicago. It was a short drive to get into the city and having the garage was very convienent. We had everything we could have needed to cook meals and enjoy ourselves. Would definitely recommend this rental to others.

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.
