About Jim Flanders

My wife and I decided to buy this property as an investment to help fund our daughter's education. We put our heart and soul into creating a place that feels like a home away from home. Since opening in Aug. 2008, we have met so many wonderful people from all over the world. We live in the neighborhood and are always happy to help our guests during their stay. We would love to accommodate you and your family or group. We look forward to accommodating you! Jim

Why Jim Flanders chose Chicago

WE WERE FEATURED ON ABC'S HIT TELEVISION SERIES 'SWEET RETREATS'!! Our address is hard to beat. The 3400 block of north Southport has become home to many upscale boutiques, restaurants, and salons. The street features very wide sidewalks and quaint architecture. Safety is paramount in this area, as so many families stroll the block each night. Every Halloween, thousands of children fill the street to gather candy from the many friendly merchants. Location, location, location is just one of the reasons that in our 1st year we have had very little vacancy and 100% excellent reviews!

What makes this condo unique

Chicago Southport Suites is located in the heart of the Southport Corridor in the Lakeview neighborhood near Wrigley Field. We are only a few minutes walk to Lincoln Park, the train to downtown, restaurants, bars, salons, you name it. Our proximity to Cubs games, Lake Michigan, and many shops and restaurants is unbeatable. Enjoy all of this while staying in a totally restored luxurious suite in a magnificent historic graystone building.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim - We had a wonderful trip to the "north side". the ambiance of your condo was inspiring! I invested a hefty sum in Chicago books, including one from the library in the suite, "Chicago Then and Now" brought back many memories of life in this city. Thank you for making a "home away from home" available to Chicago bound travelers. The beds were comfy, the surroundings were beautiful, and Chicago was...Chicago! We now head for a stay on the "south side" to visit friends and family there, and bring with us good reports from this end of the city. Go Illini!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in great shape and a perfect location. Close to may restaurants, taverns and shopping. Walking distance to Wrigley. It was a great time and a great place.

Great family rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 kids (ages 4-9) and I stayed here for a long weekend getaway. The rental is exactly as described. It's clean, well furnished, and the location is fantastic. We were in town the Saturday night of Chicago's St. Patty's Day celebration and I was pleasantly surprised how quiet it was inside despite the rowdy crowds at the restaurants across the way. It's really just a couple minute walk from the brown line, and an easy walk to several great restaurants, a grocery store, coffee shop, and some nice retail stores. I enjoyed some morning runs to the lake (past Wrigley!) and we used the El to get to the Aquarium and Willis Tower. The garage spot took the hassle out of parking. The owner was accessible and great to work with. We hope to come back!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the summer of 2014 with our 3 boys (6-10). It is 5 minutes from the train, with a 30 minute-ish ride to the downtown loop. 20 minute walk to Wrigley. Excellent dining in the area. It was also quiet at night. The place was in great condition. It allowed for us to save on dining expenses, and have a home away from home atmosphere. We drove to Chicago, and were able to store the car in the garage onsite, and use the train for everything else. The owner was very easy to work with.

Excellent location & condo

  • 5 of 5

Just steps away from the train, restaurants and shops, yet the feel of a home once you are inside. The owner is very responsive when answering questions and getting the unit booked. We were able to park in the garage, which is great in the winter. We did not need to use the car once we arrived as there was so much in walking distance and the train is so close. We would love to try this location again.

Loved the rental, the location, and the energy of the neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

I went to visit my two kids, who now reside in Chicago, for a long weekend. Thankfully I reserved the optional garage space because the city had just received a record snowfall a few days before I arrived. My accommodations were wonderful and the location was the BEST! Anything you needed was within walking distance and the El (brown line) was steps away. The apartment was cozy and well equipped. Easy instructions as to how things worked. Nice bedding and towels. My college daughter loved being able to get away from her dorm and just hang out. Her older brother even carved time out of his busy schedule to spend a night with us and have dinner. The owner, Jim, was easy to work with and very responsive to questions or requests. I plan to return for future visits with the kids and a girls trip is in the works as well!

Great Rental, Excellent Location, Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We are fellow VRBO owners and often rent using VRBO when we travel. However, Jim was our favorite owner/manager to work with so far. Always quick with a response - before and during our stay. Very kid friendly place. One-story unit with all the the comforts of home. Will definitely be back!
