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.

Great stay at Roscoe

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a weeks stay at this property and can not say enough positive things about the apartment. It exceeded our expectations and proved to be a wonderful home base from which to explore Chicago. Rick was a wonderful host from start to finish. The apartment was spacious, clean ,comfortable and convenient. Downtown was an easy drive or train ride away. Every amenity was provided from a fully equipped modern kitchen, deck with grill, television in every room, wi fi, and comfortable bedrooms. Neighborhood was filled with excellent restaurants as well as markets if you choose to eat in. Thanks to Rick for being such a gracious host.

Beautiful home, great Village and close to Chicago.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Rick's beautiful home, equipped with everything we needed. The house was very clean, and one of the nicest houses that I have ever stayed at over the years that I've used VRBO. The home was conveniently located in Roscoe Village, with plenty of restaurants and shops. This is a very safe area with lots of places to park. We were walking distance to the Brown Line, and took this to get into Chicago. There was plenty to do, and it was nice to know that we could come back to this beautiful home to relax after our outings. I would highly recommend Rick's home to my closest friends.

Reliable Roscoe

  • 5 of 5

I NEVER pursue a property with less than 4 stars. Recognizing properties, like politicians, cannot please all, seeing a property with consistent 5 stars and a million reviews peaks ones interest, curiosity, and a tad bit of skepticism. Well let me tell you, our 5 days at 2138 were better than many honeymoons. Rick Hughs was the consummate host with an extraordinary property. Being in town to enjoy baseball, history, museums, were made much more enjoyable having Rick's home to return to in the evening. The property was as described, clean, and most well maintained, updated and comfortable. A very walkable property 4 or so blocks to the "L" with great restaurants not to mention gelato right outside your door. Do not hesitate considering this property. One caveat however, see if Rick can arrange less humidity for this high desert person (no fear the air conditioning works great). I be back!

Fabulous rental in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We were two families traveling with kids (8 people total), and 2138 Roscoe was perfect. The photos online almost don't do the place justice - it is truly incredibly luxurious and well-appointed, very clean, and perfectly situated. This is a large high-end unit in a great location! The Roscoe Village neighborhood is quiet, residential, and family-friendly with plenty of restaurants, shops and taverns (for those not traveling with kids!). We walked and/or took public transportation everywhere (even to and from the airport!) during our stay. The guest house is located just .5 miles to the brown line Paulina stop, and there is a great grocery store (Mariano's) and drug store (Walgreen's) within .5 miles in the other direction from the house. Wrigley Field is only 1.5 miles, and we enjoyed the walk home after a game. Rick is a gracious host - ready to offer helpful tips and show you how everything works in the unit. Our trip was so busy seeing the sights all day, coming "home" was a true treat. The exclusive deck was a lovely place to have a meal, entertain, or chat after the kids were in bed. There are TVs in every room, so any screen-time fans will have plenty of options. The kitchen has everything you need for meals, but with all the options nearby, take-out and delivery are equally easy. We tried John's Place (just downstairs on the corner) for take out one night and ordered delivery from Hakka Bakka another night. Both were great! In one bathroom, there is a steam shower; in the other, a jet tub, and all the rooms are a great size! The master bedroom closet was large enough to hold the foldaway twin that our daughter slept in - everyone had his/her own space. Don't miss that massage chair either - a must after a long day of sight-seeing! We all highly recommend the guest house, especially for groups and anyone wishing to have a true 'home away from home.' Thanks again, Rick, and we hope to be back!
