Why Owner/Manager chose Chicago

In Real Estate they say 'location, location, location'. We have that. What we say is 'views, views, views'.

What makes this condo unique

Few cities have buildings as tall as Chicago, fewer still have rent-able Penthouse units. This is you opportunity to experience luxury living at it's finest.

Excellent condo in great central area with magnificent views

  • 5 of 5

We'd never been to Chicago before, and wanted to spend 5 nights there in a central downtown area. This condo is beautiful, clean, has exceptional views of downtown and the lake, and is close to most downtown attractions. Well furnished and decorated. Highly recommended!

Second time at this location and will go back

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this penthouse location and it was everything we remembered and hoped for. Outstanding location. You can train in from O'Hare airport and never need a car. The unit is very clean and well equipped and the view is unsurpassed. There are bike rentals nearby which gave us access to Lakeshore Drive. We also walked to the Chicago Theater, the River Walk, Miracle Mile and numerous restaurants.

MOST AMAZING LOCATION, VIEW, AND SERVICE!

  • 5 of 5

Previously having lived in Chicago, I knew this neighborhood was going to be a perfect location. And boy, was that true...only steps to the train, great restaurants, and everything the city has to offer!

The view from the condo is as amazing as it gets. Jim and Jeri-Lou were extremely accommodating, and we had absolutely everything we could have hoped for and me. Thanks for the great mini vacation getaway. We will be back!

Had a great time in Chicago-The condo had everything one could need

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciate Jeri-Lou and Jim's hospitality with Penthouse #9. The condo had everything one would need, and more! The building could not have been in a better location, with shopping and dining all around the building. The Penthouse was beautiful, comfortable and very clean-It looks brand new! Again, thank you for a great visit and I will let Jeri-Lou and Jim know when I am back to stay in the penthouse again!
