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.

For what we needed, the Garden Unit was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, and the caretaker who lives on site was very helpful.

We needed a place with no stairs, and close to Rogers and Howard Parks for a family event. We paid $10 a day for a parking spot and rented a car from the Enterprise on Western Ave. Our parking area was easy to get to. Ross, the caretaker assured me that if I got lost, I could call him and he would tell me how to get back.

Jarvis Ave area is quiet. Other than the dehumidifier running during the night, our stay was quiet. The kitchen is clean and well supplied with dishes and appliances. Beds are comfortable. Plenty of towels, and the two bathrooms were an added bonus, when we had company over one afternoon. The garden area in back, is small, but nice to be able to sit outside in your own privacy among the trees, grass and flowers and listen to the cicadas.

There was even an onsite bunny rabbit.

Good WiFi and TV reception. I had two bars on my cell phone, so I made use of the toll free landline phone that was available.

Our first night we arrived late. The unit has a book of close grocery stores, restaurants, trains, etc. I called for Chinese delivery from the list of restaurants provided. I don't remember the name, but delivery was prompt, plenty of food and it was good.

I recommend the Cermak Store on Damen and N Ridge Blvd. Get your breads, pastries, sandwich goodies, fresh fruits and head back to the Garden Unit on Jarvis and prepare yourself a meal.

It is a comfortable area to get out and take a walk.

If you are new to Chicago and plan on staying here and driving, orient yourself to Howard St, N. Ridge Blvd, Touhy Ave. and N. Sheridan Rd. I did not have a chance to ride the "L" Red Line train so I have no recommendations.

Sheridan Rd. will get you south to Wrigley Field or north to Northwestern University and clear into Wisconsin.

Yes, I would definitely stay here again!!

Outstanding

This place was absolutely amazing. William and Ross took great care of me. First time in Chicago from Houston, there couldn't be any other place I would've chosen. Response was very quick. Will definitely rent again, next year around! Thank you!

Lovely home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and the pictures do not fully capture the essence of how beautiful the interior is of this property! The kitchen was well stocked, some toiletries were available in the bathrooms, and the place was spotless. We were glad we took advantage of the parking option, as spots on the street are very hard to come by. The property manager was very personable and made sure that we knew where local restaurants and stores were located (also in a handy folio they had prepared for us in the unit).

Very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over a long weekend for Northwestern graduation. Apartment is conveniently located less than 3 miles from campus. The 4 of us were comfortable, but I would not put more than 4 people in this apartment, as the sofa bed and 2nd bedroom beds are quite small. Check-in was very easy and convenient, and the provided parking spot was definitely needed, as the street parking was really full most of the time. Apartment felt secure, beds were really comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed for a short stay. The only negative was there is no place to walk to (restaurants, etc) and the El is about a 20 minute walk away. Overall a good experience.

Excellent Property

  • 4 of 5

This property was very nice, was well-stocked and the property manager was very helpful. He went the extra mile and contacted us immediately when we had left some belongings in the condo.

We appreciated the parking space because street parking was hard to come by.

We would definitely stay here again. I give it 4 stars and not 5 because I rarely give 5!

Very nice!

VRBO has yet to let me down. This condo was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. Lots of good restaurants and entertainment available a short ride or a good-weather walk away. Thanks!
