Home Away From Home
I rented this apartment for over 2 weeks when my daughter was graduating from the University of Chicago (and moving out of one apartment and into a summer sublet). Over the time of rental, the numbers of visitors ranged from me alone to 7 adults in town for the graduation. This apartment more than lived up to expectations.
The living room/great room area is actually larger than the photo implies and was very comfortable and well laid out. The kitchen was well stocked and our host, Yonin, had left a number of goodies as well as a bag of ground coffee for the week!
The beds were comfortable and the rooms are large. The 2 bathrooms are well planned - and having a washer/dryer in one was incredibly helpful.
Some notes: This is an old building -- which allows for larger rooms and a lovely historic feel. But it means that if you have noisier upstairs neighbors, you can hear their footsteps. If it is a problem, let Yonin know and he will alert them. This is not a rudeness, just a truth about older buildings.
The entrance/exit is through the back door next to the tiny parking lot. It might have been nice to have a key to get in and out the front door for walks and if you park on the street, but this is not a huge factor.
The weeks we were there, there was street construction that made street parking a bit harder, but that should not be the case most of the time.
This is at the edge of the gentrified part of North Kenwood. Though this end of the street has some less-cared for building, you can see the neighborhood cares and is slowly renovating the houses. I walked around alone to the shopping areas and over to the lake, and everyone I met was friendly and greeted me. Everything you need is within a short distance, and you will truly experience Chicago living. Also, the close entrance/exits to Lakeshore Drive makes this place perfectly situated for going north to downtown.
Also, Yonin was wonderful! He truly cares for the comfort of his guests.
I highly recommend this apartment, especially for groups or families. And if you have a child at UChicago, BOOK IN ADVANCE for graduation!
This place was clean and specious (there were 4 of us on a business trip) and the owner was great to deal with. He was very responsive and checked in with us. It's right next to a bridge to the park by the lake and I went running every morning.
This place was great- they even accommodated 2 parking spots.
Great location near Downtown Chicago
The location was excellent, we were minutes away from downtown Chicago. We were a family of nine and the place had enough rooms for all of us it was clean and very well maintained. The property manager was great to accommodate us with the check-in time, since we were traveling from Atlanta. We would highly recommend this property and would stay here again if we went to Chicago.
Spacious and very clean!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The space allowed us to share the apartment with some friends as we enjoyed time in Hyde Park and downtown. Also very convenient to spending time with our daughter at U Chicago 👍�
Way better than a hotel. Nicely remodeled condo. Everything we were looking for.
Having never used home away before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. There were 8 of us traveling together and this condo was exactly what we were looking for. It is nicely remodeled and had everything we needed during our stay. Plenty of room to unpack and feel right at home, way better than a hotel.
Since I am not very familiar with Chicago and the surrounding areas, I had no idea what kind of neighborhood it would be. Again, I was pleasantly surprised. The neighbors are all very friendly.
The owner was excellent. He stayed in contact to make sure that we had everything we needed and that our trip was going well. Even though its not right in the city, it is just a quick Uber ride to get wherever you want to go. I would definitely stay here again.
