Welcome! Your vacation rental is a bright, well-appointed, and thoroughly updated 1300 sq ft apartment in La Grange, Illinois. First impressions are important, and our goal is to have you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Your apartment rental, with private entrance and dedicated off-street parking space, is on the first floor of a two-apartment owner-occupied building. The spacious living room and sun-room welcome you with comfortable seating, and room to spread out. A desk located at one end will easily accommodate two people working on laptops, and gives kids a work-space as well. We provide outlet towers in several locations for all your electronics. The fully-equipped kitchen includes a island/breakfast bar, and the dining room comfortably seats six. There are sleeping accommodations for four in the two nicely sized bedrooms. The option is there for one or two additional guests to stay in the sun-room which has pocket doors for privacy, and a full size sofa bed equipped with an Air Dream mattress. There are two full baths, including an en-suite in the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a Queen-size bed, and you will enjoy sleeping on a very comfortable Serta Pillowtop mattress. Bedroom Two has two twin beds. A front-load washer and dryer is available in the laundry room, located on the lower level. There is central air and heat, wireless internet and printer, and Direct TV. You will also have access to a Weber charcoal grill, and patio seating in the back yard.

Our property is located in a quiet neighborhood, just two blocks from historic, and vibrant downtown La Grange, Illinois with its many shops and restaurants. It's a short two-block walk to the Commuter Rail Line, taking you into Chicago, or points west. Oakbrook Center Mall in Oakbrook, Illinois [Nordstrom, Macy's, and MANY more] is six miles away. It's three miles to Brookfield Zoo [also accessible via the METRA train], and five miles to Loyola University Medical Center. It's only a five minute drive to Plymouth Place Senior Living in La Grange Park if you are visiting family staying there.

About Chris and Susan

We are a married couple that has traveled throughout the US extensively, using the vacation rentals as our lodging in most cases. We have always enjoyed staying in a place that wasn't a tiny 300 sq ft hotel room with no character, and we wanted to try a vacation rental with our property. Our hope is that you will walk in and feel instantly welcomed, and comfortable. We live onsite, but there is no real space that you will have to share with us, including the entrance and driveway.

Chris and Susan purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Chris and Susan chose La Grange

The property is located in the late 1800's established village of La Grange, Illinois. It's in a family oriented neighborhood, and we have always enjoyed coming to La Grange for various reasons, and staying to go to lunch, dinner or a movie, just 2 blocks away. We relocated to La Grange in 2013, after completing a complete remodel of our building.

What makes this apartment unique

Our building is completely remodeled, and thoroughly updated - walls, floors, windows, and appliances, and fixtures.

We have had several different experiences in vacation rentals and we we hope that we have covered most of the deficiencies that we have come across. Simple things like cleanliness, comfortable seating, and sleeping for sure, but also providing good cookware and kitchen utensils, not 23 slotted spoons but no functional cork screw....

Please let us know if there are any allergy concerns so that we may prepare the house or kitchen for your stay.

Fantastic VRBO! Home away from home 😊�

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this VRBO several times. This LaGrange property is a home away from home! There are so many reasons we choose to return to LaGrange. It is close to the train, has good restaurants and shops walking distance away, free parking and is in a lovely neighborhood two blocks away from downtown La Grange. Also, Chis and Susan have outfitted this apartment beautifully! The kitchen has everything you need to prepare daily meals and/or entertain. We have entertained family and friends several times during our stays. We highly recommend this VRBO!

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in the house. It has the most perfect location around, with a multitude of restaurants and stores walking distance. They have everything you need and more. It's very comfortable. Our toddler son loved the proximity to seeing the trains but I was amazed that you couldn't hear them at night. The beds were wonderful. Also the kitchen was perfect for cooking or making delicious Trader Joe's meals! Another bonus was the small yard to enjoy. The gracious hosts are always available for questions or help which is nice and they really go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. Stay here instead of a hotel in this area and you won't regret it!

Great host and hostess

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better than described. Clean does not go far enough to describe the condition of the property. The kitchen was well equipped. A couple of problems we had over the two weeks were addressed promptly. We wish the double bed were a queen size, but it was as described. We would stay there again in a moment.

Owner's Response: Fred, thank you for the very nice review. We enjoyed having you stay with us - you were great guests! We do have to clarify though, for our marketing purposes, that the bed in the master bedroom is a queen size bed. The only double bed in the apartment is the sofabed in the sunroom.
