Nice place and location
Overall was a really good stay, condo was clean but not immaculate. Owner seemed very nice. I think if a few extra things had been different would be 5 stars: stains in master bedroom carpet near entrance, trash cans all very small and only provided plastic shopping bags with handles. A few things that would go a long way would include larger trash can with supply of normal bags, dish soap, 1 roll of paper towels (we were provided 7 half towels), soap and shampoo for showers (dispensers were dirty and essentially empty), and a stiffer or similar to clean floor.
So sorry your stay was less than 5 stars. Thank you for letting me know about the stain in the master suit, we have since had the carpets cleaned, as I wasn't aware of the stain until I read your review-thank you for bring it to our attention. As for the trash bags, dish soap, paper towels, shampoo and conditioner, swiller, and vacuum; all were available under the sink, and/or in the closet. I would have been happy to have helped you find what you needed if you let me know during your stay. Thank you for taking the time to write your review- it certainly helps us improve our space for future guests! All the best!
Beautiful city views, all the comforts of home
We stayed at Carmen's condo for the June 2018 Taylor Swift concert at Soldier Field, which was well within walking distance. We enjoyed the clean, simply decorated condo and fresh linens - including the bathrobes in the master bedroom closet. The balcony offered great views of the stadium and a sliver of Lake Michigan. The smart TV was a nice touch - we watched our Netflix shows before bed. We had hoped for TVs in the bedrooms but that was a minor oversight on my part. The kitchen had just about everything we looked for - plenty of glassware, knives/cutting boards for cutting our mojito limes, even coffee before we headed out in the morning. Little touches (fancy room spray in the bathroom, edison bulb lamps for evening lighting) were appreciated.
Just a few things to know before booking:
1. Reserve your parking well before you think you need to. Apps such as ParkWhiz and SpotHero are essential for finding the closest lot within your budget.
2. Communicate to Carmen whether or not you will need to pullout couch made up for guests. We found some sheets in the linen closet but weren't sure if they had been laundered so we washed/dried them upon arrival so my sister-in-law could sleep there. The laundry option was a nice perk for this reason.
3. The $2,000 deposit is steep and beyond what we've seen for rentals. Your card will be charged for the deposit when full payment is due. It is not refunded until a few days after your stay.
Overall, I recommend this rental and would definitely come back when visiting Chicago. Carmen was a gracious and accommodating hostess.
This condo is perfect!
Carmen has an amazing place, very clean, and comfortable with unforgettable views. Close to grocery stores, and transportation. We came for a conference at McCormick and it was the perfect place, business travelers delight!
Fabulous apartment in perfect location
This apt. is great for exploring Chicago. Apartment is immaculately clean and well stocked. Plenty of room for 4-6 people. Landlord is wonderful to work with. Would recommend this booking to anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in Chicago.
Great convenient condo close to everything! Very well run.
The property manager was very accommodating and very professional. The place is clean and has many of the comforts of home! Good restaurants and parks/museums just a short walk away. We didn't rent a car and were so happy we didn't.w We didn't need one at all, supermarket is a block away! Thanks so much for sharing your space during our Lollapalooza vacation! Beautiful spot, our family will be back (we had 5 of us vey comfortably).
