Lovely vintage apartment

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the convenient location of this apartment. It is 2 blocks from Lincoln square and very close to 2 train stops. We walked everywhere to the many shops and restaurants in the area. Grocery stores are also walkable. The neighborhood is very safe and makes for enjoyable walking/running for exercise.

We were visiting our son and his family for two weeks and were very pleased with Carl's accommodations. We would definitely stay again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I really enjoyed the "vintage charm" and neighborhood feel of this apartment. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Besides being in a convenient spot for our particular needs, we enjoyed just walking around block after block viewing the local architecture of an era. Coffee shops, restaurants and more were within easy walking distance... as was the train. With that, we had convenient access to wherever we wanted to go. In fact, we did not have (nor need) a car at all. ... We would certainly reserve this apartment again. We did enjoy the feel of stepping back in time, while having all conveniences. The apartment layout worked well for us, too, with the bedrooms on opposite ends. We all simply had room to feel we were in a home-like environment, tho we were more than a thousand miles away.

Love this place and the location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a place to stay while we visited our daughter at North Park University. This was a great location for not only that but also it is just a short walk away to Lincoln Square. Lots of nice shops and restaurants to take advantage of. We also had no problem finding parking. The apartment is also a short walk to the Brown Line.

The property is roomy and very clean. We appreciated that and the vintage feel. Thank you for the extra touches like the welcome card and a basket full of brochures with many things to do around the city. We would come back again. Thank you!

This is a wonderful place to stay, in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This has become our "home" when we're in Chicago. The accommodations are very welcoming. Having an apartment for a week or long weekend provides the flexibility and comfort you miss when you are in a hotel. Lincoln Square offers a variety of restaurants, neighborhood bars, and interesting shops. This was our third summer on Leavitt Street and we hope to return in 2017. Thank you Carl!

Exceeded Expectations In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

*Carl was exceptionally easy to contact, coordinate, and work with and the entire process from initial contact to check-out was seamless and enjoyable.

*Carl's attention to detail, as well as the BEAUTIFUL property, far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a stay in Chicago, and I would love to stay in this property again the next time we visit the area.

*The property is a short, easy walk to CTA (we took the brown line, green line, and orange line during our trip and, having never taken mass transit before had no trouble getting around anywhere in the city.)

*We felt perfectly safe at all hours of the day and night during our trip and were constantly seeing parents with small children playing, people jogging alone at night, and people walking their dogs in the neighborhood. We didn't meet ONE unfriendly person in the neighborhood our entire week stay.

*The property is a short walk from many different restaurants, coffee shops, a liquor store, a theater, and various retail stores. We only used the car twice the whole time we were there.

*We never had any trouble finding street parking in front of the building.


Thank you, Carl!
