Chicago born business woman, I am a professional photographer & living in my favorite Chicago neighborhood where I offer several beautiful loft apartments. Offering vacation rental homes for a couple years and well reviewed on other similar sites. I am new to HomeAway and very excited to be here! As a frequent world traveler, I've fashioned my homes to provide everything a traveler needs to spend time in a community just like a local & less like a tourist. I believe my homes are perfect for discerning travelers. I just love photography and travel frequently to NYC, Boston, Philly, DC, San Fran and LA often to capture my favorite places or moments. Abroad travel includes Australia, U.K., London, Spain & hopefully many more countries in the near future. I also love fine restaurants & lounges & biking / walking on the lakefront. Couldn't live without the best pizza places in the world.
Why Shaine chose Near North Side
Comprised of nearly 30 interconnected structures built between 1880 and 1965, Cobbler Square Loft Apartments was formerly a Dr. Scholl’s factory. The unique complex was converted to apartments in the mid-1980s, and underwent a complete renovation in 2009. The result? One of the most interesting rental communities in Chicago. Located in Old Town, voted one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the nation, Cobbler Square is in the middle of some of the best shopping, nightlife and fine dining and history in the City of Chicago. The community is in the gallery district, exposing residents to an array of cultural influences. Sample one of nearly 100 different craft beers at Pour House. Get styled at Arch Apothecary. Spend an evening laughing at Second City or Zanies. Get romantic over some an Italian dinner at Orso’s. Dive into some sweets at Fudge Pot. Cobbler Square Loft Apartments is within walking distance of mass transit, so traveling to the shops on Oak Street or Magnificent Mile, the parks and beaches near Lakeshore Drive or the museums of downtown Chicago, is a breeze. .

Great location and vibe
Great overall location; fun being back in old neighborhood after 6 years.
very nice apartment, in a lively neighbourhood
The apartment is very nice and confortable, with many restaurants and bars nearby. Very good bus and train connections to the main touristic places
Perfect for the center of Chicago
The accommodation was perfect for our family trip - a spacious, modern studio in the heart of Old Town of Chicago. It was easy walking distance to the lake, Magnificent Mile, the loop, and Lincoln Park. Shaine the owner was very helpful with our move in and attentive during our stay. We would definitely stay there again!
Wonderful family treated my home as if it were their own. Excellent communication made it super easy to accommodate their stay. They didn't need much and seemed to really enjoy my home. My favorite type of guests and are welcome back anytime
Great location and Shaine is great host
My friends and I just stayed in one of Shaine's listings on the most popular weekend of the summer. Shaine could have charged us an outrageous amount for the property but kept her rate reasonable and took every effort to ensure that my group had a great stay.
Location: Cobbler Square lofts are in a great part of Old Town that has tons of restaurants, bars, and grocery/convenience stores within a half mile walk. Lake Michigan is a few blocks East; Downtown is a quick 10 minute drive South; and Wrigleyville is a quick 15 minute drive North. For a group taking in all of the city, this location can't be beat!
Property: The unit was exactly as advertised. There was plenty of space, ample beds and couches to sleep the entire group, everything was clean, and the only amenity lacking was a nightly turndown service :)
I recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place in a great location with a great host. Thank you Shaine for making our weekend a memorable one.
I'll have to add the turndown service. Thanks for being awesome guests!
