Great stay, wonderful owners, great location, looks just like the pics!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this place. The location was perfect, being not far from the metra, lakeshore drive (downtown chicago is only a 15 min drive - pro tip use Spot hero app to save a bunch on downtown parking), the beaches are about a 5 min drive, AND there are 3 coffee shops, grocery store, and tasty restaurants within 5 min walk or less! Never had a problem with the on street parking as well, so no worries there.

Sue is the best, and made us feel welcome, easy to talk to and was always prompt with communication about our stay. The apartment is great and has everything you need, including fast wi fi. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Chicago!

Comfortable and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Sue is a wonderful hostess. The apartment is very comfortable and a great place to relax when the day is done. The beds are comfortable. Everything we needed was in the apartment.

Location is wonderful. Restaurants and shopping a block away.

Thanks Sue, we had a great weekend!

Nice, convenient place to stay near the Pier

  • 4 of 5

Keith and Sue are great hosts and they have a nice, convenient place to stay near Navy Pier (about a 20 minute taxi/uber ride away) and basic shopping within walking distance. Very comfortable stay and we'll definitely be looking to stay here again when we return to Chicago.

Thanks guys - you're awesome!

Great value- perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a no frills garden apartment. You may feel a bit like a Millennial staying here but in fact it has everything you need. Owners Sue and Keith are beyond delightful - fun, enthusiastic, and accommodating hosts. if you can spend any time hanging out with them, we’d surely recommend it. Can’t say enough about the location- fun, walkable to everything yet safe and reasonably quiet. Dog friendly like you wouldn’t believe. There is a fenced yard, great residential streets for walkies, and Sue left us both dog dishes and ‘welcome’ treats.

A Comfy Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable place to stay in a GREAT location, literally just 2 minutes away from a bevy of cool restaurants and night life.

Our hosts went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and we were invited to their backyard BBQ, a very nice gesture that was quite welcome.

Look no further; if your search finds you looking at this property then you can book without any worry.
