Amazing Chicago Home in Family-Friendly Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our Chicago stay was fantastic, and the visit was enhanced by the beautiful Rick Highes home we experienced in Roscoe Village. The house/home more than met our expectations---gorgeous yet family friendly. The details in the decor and construction are wonderful. Three couples spent 3 days/nights in this home, and there was plenty of room to accommodate all of us.

'Twas a short walk to the El Train, and we quickly learned the ropes of Chicago train travel.

The little area of Roscoe has a variety of restaurants, pubs, and other eating areas to meet anyone's needs.

Rick is a most conscientious host and was there to meet/greet us as we arrived and then again as we departed.

We all felt very safe in this home as it was well equipped with an electronic security system.

We will definitely stay here again when we return to Chicago.

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the 5 days we stayed at this beautiful home. Rick was a wonderful host and had everything we needed to make our stay with 3 small children very pleasant! Roscoe village is a wonderful neighborhood and central to all Chicago has to offer. We loved our stay here and will definitely be coming back next time we visit Chicago!

Thanks Rick!!

Absolutely Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this beautiful property made the experience of our son's wedding absolutely perfect in every single way! The beds were so comfortable, with the softest sheets👍𣐮 The master suite had an enormous walk-in closet and a bathroom that hit the nail on the head. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and dishes we could use, plus a dishwasher! The granite and marble counters throughout, high ceilings, and incredible trim details give the house a spa feel. There are FOUR flat screen TVs in the house. We enjoyed coffee on the back deck in the morning, and drinks on it at night. ALL the appliances are top of the line, including the washer and dryer. Rick, the owner, could not have been more hospitable! He pointed out the great restaurants in the neighborhood, and we enjoyed one of the best meals of our lives at Piazza Bella the night we arrived (handmade pasta, delicious! Thank you, Lupe!). The wedding and reception were at Architectural Artifacts, about 5 minutes away from the house. I had my hair done 4 doors down at Exsalonce. Every single thing we needed was either at the house or close by! I read all the reviews, but have never rented a home before, so was very tentative. However, the reviews, all 5-star with good reason, were on point! This felt like home from the start, and we can't wait to come back. I cannot recommend this house highly enough! Thank you, Rick!

home away from home...but better!

  • 5 of 5

First of all Rick was an amazing host. He was so great about touching base prior to our arrival to make sure we were all set for our first vacation with the baby. He met us for check in and gave us a thorough run down on the apartment and the neighborhood, both of which were highlights of our stay. The apartment itself is gorgeous and was the perfect place for us and another family with baby to stay together. Plenty of room, great beds, great kitchen to cook meals in and a beautiful deck to take in the sunshine or eat al fresco. Plus - he even had a play pen and a booster seat! The neighborhood is also a great location. Lots of places to eat and several cute shops all within walking distance, including a grocery store. There is also a great park nearby. We took a quick bus ride to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game and uber rides were short to the downtown area and Lincoln Park/Zoo. After all the sight seeing - the steam shower and the massage chair in the master bedroom were big bonuses !! We will definitely stay again the next time we come to town. Highly highly recommend this place for families and those traveling with little ones.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 adults stay at this wonderful property. All I can say is "look no more" if this is the size space you're looking for! Extremely comfortable in all aspects, walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bars, Wrigley, and the Brown Line, and very clean. If you need to go further, we never waited longer than 7-8 minutes for an Uber to arrive. Rick was so easy to work with from beginning to end, and he will give lots of great advice if you need local information. The steam shower in the master bath is amazing! High end appliances, a nice deck out back, well-appointed kitchen. Can't say enough good things. The cherry on top was a refund of our security/damage deposit the SAME DAY we checked out - almost unheard of, at least in my experience with VRBO properties! We will definitely be back should our plans take us to Chicago again. Thanks Rick and Jodi for the stay in your beautiful flat!!!

Great experience in luxury

  • 5 of 5

The guests' reviews are fully true. The condo is simply great. It features, inter alia, a very large gas stove and oven, a very large freezer plus ice cube machine, a massage armchair, a bathtub with Jacuzzi effect, a very large shower with hot steam, air conditioning and heating system in the floors, 4 large flat screen TVs, a printer, lots of chinaware and glasses, a kids' corner, a large private Terrasse with barbecue devices, etc. etc. Almost no noise in the bedrooms: enjoy a calm sleep.

The nighborhood is nice, kid and family friendly but not too fancy. Find two supermarkets (including upscaled Mariano's) in a distance of 500 m (a third of a mile), approx. 8 restaurants, 4 taps, coffee shops, two wine bars and several boutiques close to the condo. We recommend the Turkish restaurant just opposite to the apartment, the Cuban restaurant is fun (bring your own bottle of wine). The Italian is good as well but its wine bottle prices are too high. The Metro's Pauline station (CTA brown line) is about a 8 minutes walk and the line gets you to the Loop within 20 minutes for USD 2,50. Parking spaces are allways available around the corner, but one doesn't need a car.

Rick is very friendly and helps you instantly when needed.

We spent super vacations there (two adults, three kids) and are really sad that we couldn't stay longer.
