No pool. Not clean. Lack of attention to detail.
I informed the host we would arrive shortly after checking in time. When we got there the place had not been cleaned. Bed was unmade. Garbage not taken out. Dishes. Bathroom dirty. Floor unswept. It was anything but welcoming and inviting. I contacted our host again and she was very attentive, and kind. she got there within 30 minutes and apologized and tidied up some things but the process was traumatizing to say the least.
There was no swimming pool even though that was listed. Was pretty upset by that. it says it sleeps 4 but a friend and I stayed there and there was literally 1 bowl, 1 plate, 0 counter space, dirty pantry items, sad excuse for cookware. The couch was super uncomfortable. The decor was sub par and felt rushed. Bed was not comfortable and very small. View was unimpressive and neighbors were loud. Workout area was small but got the job done. It was obvious that the hosts never spend any time there because it wasn't the most comfortable place to stay. Also: huge problem, no lamp in the place. Intimate lighting is essential for evenings and this space fell short. Also, no dresser space, which was a let down. Overall, it was fine, but, I wouldn't book this place again. The over arching theme was lack of care towards the space.
Nice neighborhood. Fair for the price.
Cozy and comfortable for two plus a dog, but sleeping 3 or 4 would be more than cozy. Less than 20 minutes from a nice dog beach. Had to learn from a resident how to open the gate (and that the chip swipe simultaneously opened the door 25 ft. away). Property description indicates "pool", but don't believe it.
A nice liittle spot
I will b back
Had to book elsewhere
The host is extremely hard to get in contact with. I ended up booking a whole different place and didn’t get any of my money back. The host blames Vrbo, yet Vrbo blames the host? Either way extremely unprofessional.
DO NOT STAY, TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE - APT TRASHED
Upon arrival, which was one hour after allowed check-in, all the lights were on, the balcony door was open, the bed and couch were all messed up. Wet towels were on the floor, the toilet hadn't been flushed and there was a cigarette in the toilet. We also saw evidence of weed. Clearly the prior guests had had a big party. The property owner came over and told us she would have it all cleaned up in 15min. Despite the 'deep clean' there was dust everywhere, and the sink was clogged and 2 sets of plumbers had to come. After 2.5 hours they unclogged it. We also had to buy our own sponges as the apartment didn't have any. Two lightbulbs were blown and we told Elise, but she never brought over new ones. The bathroom door does not have a handle. Our overall impression was that Elise doesn't understand what it means to manage a vacation rental. It's ridiculous that Home Away lists this property.
The loft and hosts were great. My fiance and I stayed 4 days 3 nights and had a great time. I was surprised at how quiet the building was. The bed slept well, there's everything you need to make your own meals, the place is fully stocked in case you forget something. A short walk maybe 5 minutes to the L and only 2 stops to Wrigley. Everything you need is super close. We couldn't figure out the TV, but we had WiFi so we used the laptop for Netflix. Highly recommend. Thank you to the hosts
