Wonderful weekend getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 old high school friends had a wonderful reunion at this lovely graystone unit. The condo is in a wonderful location and is beautifully decorated and appointed. The owner's are thoughtful hosts....everything you could want is available in the kitchen and bathrooms. There's lots of room for hanging around and catching up and a large dining room table for group meals. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return another time. Thanks for a great weekend!

The Lap of Luxary

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a week in this glamorous, cozy brownstone. From the moment we pulled up, we knew this was a gem! Located on a tree-lined, upscale block- just a stone's throw from the glitz and glam of Michigan Avenue- this was the perfect landing spot for our family. Nicole was there to greet us, with fireplaces and lights on for a warm welcome after a long day of travel. Every detail has been carefully considered by the friendly and professional management team. I've stayed in several high-end vacation rentals around the world, and this one takes the cake! From plush bedding, to AMAZING bathrooms, to the fireplace in the master bedroom! It's difficult to paint a picture of just how wonderful this place is! Gorgeous woodwork, three well-appointed bedrooms, flameless candles and aroma diffusers to create a relaxing vibe, flawless decorating, plenty of snacks and water bottles, bath products, Q-TIPS!!, the list goes on. It was so lovely, we didn't want to go home! Thank you again Nicole for all you did to make this a 5 Star experience for our family! We LOVED it!!!

Scammed Us for our Security Deposit and Frequently cursed at us, TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT!

  • 1 of 5

Went to have a conversation regarding a misunderstanding and he responded disrespectfully yelling "I'll eat you for lunch!", "I am right and you are wrong!" and used profanity toward us. My girlfriend felt belittled and talked down too leading to her crying after. Asked my refund after the 1st day and he furiously declined. Also falsely claimed damages to keep our security deposit. As a customer, it is deeply disheartened to be treated like this and I hope HomeAway resolves this issue and doesn't allow the person downstairs to talk to customers like that again. The manager lives right downstairs and easily can come up whenever he likes without going through an upstairs door which wasn't stated on the page and should be! Nice house, but terrible management, not worth it!!!!

Owner's Response: No one scammed you! If you plan to throw a bash at my home yes you lose your money! This is ownership. I am sorry but you said 5 guests and then you decide to have a party of 40 people at our home. NO WAY! I am sure you would not even notice damage. We asked you to get your friends out. You were hiding.....don't portray your 5 friends then throw party... Not happening with us! Next night 4:15 am.. guys with earings and girls loud outside over 20 people partying... I am sorry wrong neighborhood this is a beautiful community and we adhere to respect all our neighbors. 12:30 ordinance ! I would recommend you book a party place and they won't stand for that either. You got a 1 star - Your university michigan credintials was deceiving. Good luck to you! Don't book to this guy ever!!!!!!!

Quality Experience

  • 5 of 5

We 3 mature, professional women shared this beautifully appointed Brownstone apartment for a long winter weekend celebrating our birthdays while braving the frigid Chicago temps. This well-situated VRBO, on a quiet Chicago street with ample parking, is exceptionally appointed with high end kitchen appliances and utensils, scrumptiously thick bath towels with numerous bathroom beauty supplies, delightful and welcomed heated floors, wonderfully comfortable beds/linens, and beautiful, numerous, and comfortable conversation areas.

Obviously all of the above would fall short without attention to travelers' needs during their stay. With that said, Nicole, the manager, was attentive to some ongoing needs during the exceptional frigid Chicago weather. I applaud her attentive spirit and her creative solutions to keeping us warm and comfortable. I also applaud Michael, their IT person, for his expertise and patience, which allowed us to watch multiple movies in the comfort of this lovely environment. If you don't stay here, you will have missed a quality experience.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home fro a family vacation. We usually stay in a hotel when we visit Chicago. With 5 kids, aged, 26 to 10, we thought this would be a nice change. Everything was perfect. The home is gorgeous, clean, and in a great location. We could all do different things and still spend lots of time together. I cooked 2 nights and everything I could possibly need was available. From check in to check out,everything went smoothly. I left a valuable necklace behind, (after departure), and it was located and mailed to me immediately. Management could not have been nicer. So much better than a hotel!
