About Karen McDonnell

I have traveled the world and prefer staying in vacation rental properties. I value the comfort and convenience of a home-like atmosphere and strive to provide that to my guests. My goal has been to make this condominium a better value than the best suites at the best hotels in Chicago.

Karen McDonnell purchased this condo in 2005

Why Karen McDonnell chose Chicago

This condo is located in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Chicago. Restaurants, Sports Bars, Live Music, Comedy Clubs, Shopping, Wrigley Field, Blue Man Group, the EL train and Lake Michigan are all within walking distance! This condominium can't be beat for the price compared to hotel suites in downtown Chicago. There is almost 3,000 sq. ft. of living space with better amenities than the Four Seasons Hotel. You won't be disappointed!

What makes this condo unique

This condo enables families, friends and couples to vacation in a home-like atmosphere. It has 4 bedrooms on two levels with two separate family entertainment areas. Location, Location, Location. Walk out the front door and go in any direction and you will be entertained!

Fabulous family vacation in Wrigleyville

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from VRBO many times and this was by far our best experience. This rental is even better than the pictures. Beautifully decorated with high end furnishings and appliances. A TV flat screen in each bedroom was a plus. All supplies were included with a new full sized washer/dryer. I cooked meals more in this kitchen than ever while on vacation. The master shower is to die for! I want a replica.

All in all, a perfect spot for Cub fans. A special thank you to Ron...outstanding manager. You made our stay very enjoyable.

Outstanding Chicago Neighborhood Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great friendly neighborhood, close to everything, Wrigley, the lake, transportation, local bars & restaurants, grocery, shopping etc. etc. etc.! You can walk forever, through local neighborhoods, up & down the lake, to several parks, the zoo or just about any place necessary!

This unit is OUTSTANDING! Everything appears, or even better, works like its brand new. Top of the line appliances & electronics, great AC. Tastefully decorated, not over done or full of "clutter". Really roomy, 2 "living" areas, great bathrooms, plenty of room for our 6 adults & 1 infant. Kitchen stocked with every utensil we needed to cook our meals. Even had high chair & crib! The place was spotless when we moved in.

Karen & Prop Mgr. Ron were very responsive, although we did not need either during our stay. Ron just stopped by one day while we were sitting on the stoop to see if all was well. Prior to arriving we asked Karen if the property had a grill & she said it didn't but that it sounded like a good idea so she would get one! We grilled almost every night!

You get what you pay for... This place is "top shelf" I hope we find a reason to go back sometime!

Excellent long weekend in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

This property was in a very good location with proximity to good restaurants, shopping, the L, and easy access to the lakefront. The house was in pristine condition, comfortable, well equipped, and the property manager was available to us if we needed him at any time.

We asked for extra bedding, and they took care of inflating the air mattresses in advance of our arrival. And Ron, the property manager, gave us good advice on markets and restaurants that were easily walkable. We ended up eating at both Mia Francesca and Yoshi's and they were both outstanding.

Lovely condo in convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Adult family of 7 enjoyed this lovely condo for the Thanksgiving holiday. The kitchen was a joy to cook in and the downstairs family room was more than adequate to watch those all important football games in comfort. Everything was clean and well maintained and adequate supplies provided.

All emails were responded to quickly and Ron the property manager was a delight to get us settled and address any issues.
