Perfect getaway condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely stunning and perfectly appointed as well as being EXACTLY as pictured! It was a treat for us to stay there this past weekend during the marathon. The neighborhood was terrific and quiet and well situated to get to either the bus or train and offered a variety of nearby small grocery stores to pick up those breakfast items that you might want to have on hand. The street itself is tree-lined and very pretty.

The condo itself (and the building) is in wonderful condition, very clean and with beautiful hardwood floors throughout, big windows to let the sunlight in, and an open floor plan with the huge kitchen, living room and dining room all together. The three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were spacious, impeccably maintained and nicely decorated and the washer/dryer was a bonus and tucked away at the back of the condo. This is a very spacious and open condo that exudes warmth and convenience.

The owner and the property manager were both very responsive, and the property manager, who lives on site, gave us a full tour and explanation of how everything in the condo worked and left us with a book of notes on local restaurants, transportation and how to check-out. We were given all the info. we needed to enjoy the privacy that the unit offered, but we knew that the property manager was there if we had additional questions. Ross was very nice and a wonderful host!

Wanted to give a shoutout to a local restaurant that was suggested as being very good: Bar Ombra, in the Andersonville neighborhood (closeby) was fabulous....the homemade pasta meals and the wood grilled chicken were to die for! We highly recommend enjoying dinner there!

Everyone in our group (two couples and our youngest adult daughter) truly enjoyed this unit, the area and the ability to relax and visit with each other, something we wouldn't have been able to do if we had stayed in a hotel room. We had a lovely time in this condo and wouldn't hesitate to rent here again.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend in Chicago!

Fantastic! Better than I imagined!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Residence on the Avenue over the Christmas holidays and it far exceeded our expectations.

For starters, it is HUGE. The size of the kitchen alone is worth the price of admission. The home was beautifully furnished, comfortable and spacious. My two sisters and I comfortably shared the room with two queen beds (which has TONS of closet space), my father enjoyed his master bedroom suite and my brother had his own room. The location was convenient for our needs. Another bonus was having a garage parking spot, which in Chicago is great any day, but especially helpful as it snowed during our stay.

There's an in-unit washer and dryer, Wifi, cable, DVD player and a selection of DVD's to choose from. Also included was a helpful binder full of neighborhood information including transportation options, stores and restaurants (we had dinner at one of the reccomended restaurants, R Public House, which was delicious). The owner, William, is lovely and the building manager, Ross was so nice and helpful.

Really, I can't say enough wonderful things about Residence on the Avenue. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect place for our gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for us! We spent most of our time in the condo since we were working on a writing project. The living space area was very roomy and sitting on the couch in front of the fire was the best! The condo was very clean, bright and homey!

Grandma, Sisters, and Cousins Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our weekend visit with our sister who lives in Rogers Park. Her place is too small for all of us, and the hotels in the area are pricey and not nearly as accommodating as the Tree Top rental was! Three adults and four kids fit comfortably and then some. The floor plan was warm and open. Everything we needed was available, and we were a close walk to the train for our adventures. Ross, the on site manager, was friendly and helpful. It was an overall positive experience!
