Overview

Chicago Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enjoy all that Chicago has to offer and then come home and relax on the huge (20 x20) deck with the best skyline views in the city. This is a charming Condo in the perfect location. Have the neighborhood feel with dozens of great places to go for a bite to eat within a couple blocks, and also explore Chicago's tourist highights which are all very easily accessible from the Subway station that is literally 30 feet from the front door.

The unit has all the amenities you will need for a weekend getaway or a month long stay. It features an upgraded kitchen with granite counters, brand new stainless appliances, dishwasher, laundry in unit, a 2 person jetted jacuzzi soaking tub, a large dining area, a nice desk and workspace with inspiring skyline views, 48 in. flat screen TV, cable, Wi-Fi, Steam Shower and a BBQ grill on the massive private deck.

The location is ideal. Take the Blue line door to door from O'Hare, it is 30 feet to the Chicago Ave Subway (no noise) station. The Chicago Ave. Bus is also 30 feet away. 3 Blocks to the Halsted Bus which will take you north to Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Wrigley Field, etc and south to Greektown and the West Loop. The Property is 1 mile from the Sears (Willis) Tower, 1.25 miles from the Magnificent Mile, but in a great little neighborhood away from the hustle, bustle and tourists of the Loop and River North. If you are driving, we are located 1 block to the Exit/Entrance to the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/ 94).

The Layout of the Unit is great. There is a lot of common living space, with a nice dining area off of the Updated Kitchen. Another large space set up as an office with a desk facing the skyline. This leads to teh huge living rooom with seating for at least 10 around the large flat screen TV. The Downstairs Bathroom holds the huge Jetted soaking tub. Upstairs has the 2 bedrooms, one of which is 24x14. The large Master bedroom holds a King sized bed and 2 sets of bunk beds, one twin over twin and one twin over full, and has awesome views of the city. The smaller private bedroom has a Queen bed and a nice desk area. The upstairs bathroom features new upgraded vanity and tile and an enclosed steam shower. Laundry is found in the upstairs bath. The highlight is the monster deck out the back door of the second floor. Enjoy your morning coffee, a glass of wine before you head out, or have a great Chicago night staying in with friends and grilling out.

I lived in this unit for 10 years, so if you have any questions about the location or the unit, please ask. I love this city, and I want all of my guests to enjoy themselves too!

About Steve

I am a Realtor who specializes in the Wicker Park/ Bucktown/ Ukranian Village/ River West area. I have resided in the area for 15 years, and just love it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I can point out some fun under the radar activities that you will just love. This unit was actually my home for 10 years, and I hope you love staying there as much as I enjoyed it!!

Steve purchased this condo in 2001

Why Steve chose Chicago

I fell in love with this property when I listed it for sale for a client. At the time I was trying to find a building to house a bed and breakfast. The bed and breakfast never materialized, but I like to keep the dream alive with this vacation rental unit.

What makes this condo unique

Check out the pictures of the deck. Its absolutely huge (20 x20). Have friends and family over for a Barbeque, or just enjoy the sunrise and sunset over the gorgeous skyline.

Cool apartment in a nice part of town

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our time in Chicago, and this apartment made everything so easy and convenient. We were able to go to all the tourist stuff very easily, even took the bus directly to Navy Pier. The house was clean and very spacious. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

Very nice apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect, right next to the subway in a very cute part of town. The home itself is very clean and well taken care of. It has incredible views from the deck and from all the windows. The owner picked up the phone when we called and helped us with the parking, which was very easy. All in all, this house worked very well for us.

Excellent location!

  • 4 of 5

We were a Girl Scout Troop of 10 Senior scouts, there was plenty of room in the apt/condo. The deck had an excellent view exactly as shown in photos. St. John Cantius was also our view from the deck. Street parking was easy, especially for a 12 passenger van. Upon arrival we notified Steve that the cleaning crew did not do a very good job and he came right over to rectify the situation. We would definitely stay here again, location was perfect!
