Overview

About the property

Sleep up to 18!! Rent the building (LOFT sleeps 6-8 and PALACE sleeps 8-10)

Wicker Park/Bucktown area is for the foodie, boutique shopping, bar hopping, martini sipping, a world class neighborhood. It is laid back with genuinely good people. Tons of young people, families, young professionals, business crowd, and yes.... hipsters! Most of the activity is on Division Street but take Milwaukee Ave (primary cut-through road) to the hustle and bustle of the Six Corners in Bucktown (North Ave, Milwaukee, Damen).

This is a small boutique building. There is a store on the 1st floor, the "PALACE" is our 2nd/3rd floor unit and the "LOFT" is on the 4th/5th floor. You are technically renting out the whole building if you rent both units. Each unit is a 3 bedrooms/2 bath with 1 or 2 sofa sleepers. No elevator and not handicap accessible. Sorry!

Keys for the units are in a lockbox on the gate. We will send you the code for the lockbox a few days before your trip.

The pricing is for 1 unit. Let us know if you want to rent both units and we will send you a new quote.

About Niki Hondropoulos

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

What makes this condo unique

-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.

Convenient, clean, breathtaking views!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this for 3 total couples. The loft area is spacious with the most incredible rooftop deck and view of the city skyline. We spent all of our time up there when at the unit. Great way to finish off a night on the town!

Unit was clean and had all the amenities necessary. The ceiling fan in one of the three bedrooms didn't work but we were able to use a box fan that was stored in the unit. Be prepared for climbing 4 flights of stairs to get to unit. Wasn't a big deal for us but something to be mindful of for someone with any physical disabilities (bad knees, etc).

Location was great, the Divvy bike station is right outside the door. We either biked, walked or did rideshare everywhere we went. Overall, great experience and would stay again!

What a Gem :)

  • 5 of 5

This was an annual family vacation with 3 generations of family and we truly enjoyed our stay here on the 2nd and 3rd floor (palace) condo.

What did we love? Snack basket upon arrival was a welcome treat after a long day of driving. Game of Thrones season premiered when we were there so Dish TV on a nice large screen was certainly enjoyed by those in the party who wouldn't have missed it. Nice large TV in the great room and master BR. Master Bedroom with en suite up on the 2nd floor was large and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked and the unit was comfortable. It felt safe. Minimal street noise. Deck out over garage was delightful and private with comfortable and plentiful seating and we had a blast drinking wine and playing some family party games. Plentiful towels and bedding. Help yourself to a $10 mani at the salon next door. The bakery down the street had delicious cheesecake and the pizzeria down the block was perfect for a night spent in. Seems like a small detail but two trash cans was nice. Cash only liquor store a few blocks away and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. We Uber'd to Big Town for tacos and had a blast. This was the easiest rental we've had when it comes to getting around in a car with easy, easy access to the freeway. There were lots of menus, reference guides, maps, and Chicago sightseeing info available for us.

What I'd love to see? Blinds in the living room so we could darken the room for those sleeping on the sofa. (small detail) Parking was tight. We had a person in our party who couldn't walk long distances and the free parking around the corner was usually full so we fed the meter outside as needed. It was free for a large part of the time we were there. This isn't anything the owner can control.. it's just an FYI.

Niki was responsive to my messages when I had questions. I didn't meet her but my niece did and said she was a gracious and welcoming hostess. We are respectful guests and treat these homes as our own. It was so great that Niki made us feel like welcomed guests not just 'renters'. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you for helping us to create wonderful memories!!

Great spot! Great view!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for a big group looking to do a lot of different things around town, but still have a comfortable home-base to recharge in. The top deck and view are as advertised... sweeping views and large enough for plenty of socializing.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This Wicker Park condo is a short walk to restaurants on Division street, as well as the train for easy access to sights in Chicago. We rented the upper unit and the rest of the family had the lower unit; it was great to have space to gather for games and to enjoy views of the skyline from deck.
