Why William Harty chose Chicago

The location is perfect. I wanted to be close to the lake, airport and Evanston. I am a fanatic for wonderful architechture and Rogers Park is known for the late 20's grand style. Only 10 miles from O'Hare Field. Midway Airport is 22 miles away. Just a 15 minute ride on the Union Pacific train to the heart of the city. This train stop is only 6 blocks from Residence on the Avenue. Ravinia Park, the out door concert venue can be reached in 20 minutes by this same train.The Red line will take you to Wrigley Field, Lincoln Park Zoo & to down town.

What makes this condo unique

I love the location. All that the city has to offer is so reachable. Lake Shore Drive is so close and can take me to the Magnificient mile (Michigan Avenue)Or head the other direction where LSD becomes Sheridan Road & view the beautiful mansions along the way to the Chicago Botanical Garden..........All along the the lake front. I enjoy as well the peacefulness ofthe beautiful North Shore towns of Evanston, Willmette, Winnetka & Glencoe Having the lake front so close is also a benefit.

Wonderful apartment, warm and welcoming!

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Residence on the Avenue was a treat. We were in town for a family reunion and wanted a place that wasn't the usual hotel room. Ross, the property manager was very warm and welcoming. He provided excellent communication and met us exactly when we arranged to meet. All of our questions were answered and he provided a through overview of the property, including parking. The property provided a very nice binder full of local information (transportation, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) and maps to these places. The residence was clean and provided basic necessities for our stay. Should we find ourselves in Chicago again, we will definitely make another reservation!

Adequate, but...

  • 2 out of 5
Overall the unit was adequate for our purposes. Plenty of space; quiet. Neighborhood can appear a bit dicey at first, especially if you’re used to more spacious and well-manicured suburbs, but we adjusted to that quickly. Having the well-lit, convenient parking spot was worth the extra cost.

The main deficiency—and a major one for us—were the beds, starting with the rubber cover under the thin, cheap sheets on the master bed and including the cheap, uncomfortable pillows on both beds. Each of us had considerable trouble sleeping…and we tried both beds. With walking a lot during the day, it is nice to come back to a quiet, cool space, but we also needed to sleep, which neither of us did. Add to the unsatisfactory beds the stained cheap shower curtain in one bathroom and we agreed not to use this unit on our next visit to Chicago. The clincher came when we had to buy more toilet paper.

We cannot recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Both of our condos offer great open space and easy access to all that Chicago offers. For piece of mind our property manager lives on site and is always there if you have any issues. We do use mattress protectors and high thread count linens for durability and comfort. We take great pride in all of our rentals and have many repeat clients. Our goal is to keep improving and providing the best for our guests. We have just added a beautiful sleeper sofa to the Garden Condo. There are only 73 licensed City of Chicago Vacation rentals and both of ours are in this elite group. We look forward to having you as our guests.

Convenient and Comfortable!

  • 5 out of 5
We were so happily surprised when we arrived at this destination! The manager greeted us, made sure we parked safely, showed us around the property, and was very friendly. The place has everything one could possibly need and then some. It was spotless, attractive, and comfortable. We needed a place fairly close to where our son was moving from one apartment to the next, and this worked much better than being downtown. The off street parking made it easy. There was lots of info on good places to eat and shop in the area, too. Will definitely go back!

Excellent Visit

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was very nice and comfortable. Access to the city was easy and the neighborhood had several useful stores within a nice walking distance. The property manager was pleasant and helpful and easy to communicate with. My communications with the owner were pleasant as well. I would highly recommend this property and I would stay here again for sure.

Love this place!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is our second time to stay at this vacation rental! We love it! Ross has always greeted us warmly and makes sure our stay is comfortable. The condo is nicely furnished and allows us a place to relax and to cook, if we choose. This time off street parking was included at an additional charge, which we felt was very worth the extra cost ($10/day)...no trying to find parking or having to park way away from the building. Once inside the condo, everything is on one level and spacious but getting inside there are a few steps...so not truly accessible. :(

We have found the condo to be clean and well kept both times we have visited. Bath towels and bed linens are provided. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit. Hand and shower soaps have been included. We have had to purchase items such as toilet paper when we used up what was supplied, also baggies, aluminum foil, etc. Dishes, glasses and silverware are provided along with a few basic pots and pans. There is also a dishwasher, gas range, refrigerator and microwave. A grill and a smallish courtyard are available to use but that did not work into our plans on this trip.

After searching on-line for both vacation rentals and hotels, this is definitely the best deal. Close to the "L" (within approximately a 15 minute walk) makes this an easy and quiet place to stay but still allows you to be able to get anywhere you want.

We were privileged to tour the 3 bedroom unit in the same building...LOVED IT!!! There were only three of us staying this time but for a larger party, it would be well worth it!!!

I would definitely recommend this rental unit to friends or family!!!

Great Stay in June

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this beautful unit for a week with our daughter while she attended tennis camp at Northwestern University in Evanston. The unit was very clean and we really enjoyed all the amenities. The check-in process was efficient; Ross, the property manager who just lives upstairs, contacted us by email and met us at the prearranged time to walk us through the unit to show us all the features as well as the outside garden area and the all important designated parking space. We made full use of the modern kitchen as we did a fair amount of cooking. We also used the Weber grill in the garden area a lot; it was quite nostalgic as we hadn't used charcoal briquets in years!! The available wireless internet worked very well and we appreciated the high speed very much; the download and upload speeds were absolutely awesome!! We took full advantage of the in unit washer and dryer since we were all very active during the day with tennis and running, The unit is only a short 10 minute drive away from the great shopping and restaurants in Evanston. We also ventured into Chicago for more shopping and visited the Shedd Aquarium in the downtown area. We would definitely recommend this unit for our friends and family but only when we don't need it for our return trips to the area!!
