Need more space.....rent the condo downstairs. The "Palace" (VRBO #457800) sleeps 10 (on 2nd & 3rd floor, it is 3 bed/2 bath w/2 sofa sleepers, huge deck over the 2 car garage.
- Your vacation home is a 1500 sq. ft.duplex loft condo located on the East side of Wicker Park. Being on the east side means closer to the expressway (2 min), closer to the Division Blue Line Train (5-7 min walk) and cheaper cab fares since we are right off of the expressway ($10-15 from most Chicago attractions).
-This is a small boutique building. There is a real estate office on the 1st floor, the "PALACE" is our 2nd/3rd floor unit and the "LOFT" is on the 4th/5th floor. It is 64 steps to the top unit (no elevator) but the unobstructed view of the Chicago Skyline from the private rooftop makes is amazing!

Same TRAIN (Blue line) takes you to the downtown area in 10 minutes (about 2 miles), 2 blocks away is Chicago Ave to catch the bus to Michigan Avenue area.

Wicker Park/Bucktown: Imagine a foodie haven, boutique shopping, bar hopping, martini sipping, hipster vibe, world class neighborhood. From Marc Jacobs and Club Monaco to thrift shops and Fjallraven, welcome to Wicker Park. It has a trendy, local vibe and is conveniently located right off the safe Blue Line with three major L stops just six minutes from the Loop and downtown-- Division, Damen, Western. What I love most about Wicker Park is the laid back environment with genuinely good people. Tons of young people, families, young professionals, the business crowd, and yes.... hipsters! While it appears the more artsy, hipster scene is migrating north to Logan Square due to skyrocketing living costs in Wicker Park, the culture undoubtedly still exists. My personal favorite is Division Street on the southern border of the neighborhood. Lots of exciting developments and a more reserved scene compared to the hustle and bustle of the Six Corners (North Ave, Milwaukee, Damen). Spend your time walking around the perimeter roads (Division, Damen, North, Ashland ... Ashland is the least interesting) and the primary cut-through road (Milwaukee Ave). Take a little time to wander through the side streets, there are many older homes that are quite nice, plus a number of new constructions sneaking in alongside.

I am born and raised in Chicago. I still LOVE exploring this city because something new is always popping up. I love the Cubs, street festivals, our restuarants/bars scene, architecture, people watching while having coffee in one of the many outside patios. Happy travels!!!
Niki Hondropoulos purchased this condo in 2002
-The REAL reason to stay in our Wicker Park is super trendy shops, great food, fun music and awesome patio's for people watching. Don't fall into the tourist trap and pay the crazy prices to stay and play downtown.
This was a great place to stay. Very well taken care of, and everything was clean. Even had snacks set out on the counter with a note for us to have some! Huge plus - there is 1 car garage that is attached to the property. Only about 10 minutes from downtown Chicago, and about a 10 minute walk to the train station. Would recommend staying here!
3 couples stayed to celebrate a 40th birthday. Great location near several areas in Chicago. Stairs are killer but rooftop spot was worth it. Nikki was awesome to work with and so helpful. Condo was clean.
nice location in wicker park area with great views of the downtown from the upper deck. property was well kept and comfortable. very close to division st "L" stop, we took the train from the airport to the property and it was very convenient.
We loved this condo, and would definitely stay there again. It was secure, and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix a quick meal. The neighborhood has amazing restaurants and coffee shops. The upper deck is equipped with comfy outdoor seating and has an amazing view of the Chicago skyline.
The condo was furnished nicely. Clean and comfortable. $8 uber to downtown on average. The only negative was walking up stairs to 4th floor entry. No elevator.
2 units for rent in this property.
