Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Everything was terrific. Christie provided great instructions. All the arrangements with the keys and everything went just fine. The view is amazing - sunrise across Lake Michigan. The coffee maker delighted my husband. Nice coffee shop and CTA only about a 10 minute walk. We loved it.

Great location, gracious host

  • 5 of 5

The location is great because it's right on the lake, and convenient whether you have a car or are using public transportation (express bus or L get you downtown very easily) and because there are excellent restaurants and cafes within an easy walking distance. (There's also an outdoor cafe a few feet away, but it was closed for the season when we were there.) Four of us were able to stay comfortably, and the host was extremely gracious and helpful.

Wonderful stay for first time in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, and our two daughters had a great stay at this condo. The host provided a ton of info on public transportation and local attractions. You can easily walk to grocery stores and restaurants, but it is a very tranquil neighborhood. I felt very safe the entire time. Our favorite thing to do was walk along the lake through the beautiful Loyola campus each day. For parents, there is also a great park with a lovely café overlooking the water very close to the condo. The building itself was very quiet, but not uncomfortably so. Views were awesome and it had all the comforts of home. I would highly recommend this place for any first timers or return trips to Chicago. If we visit again, this will be our spot!

Ideal Location for Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing! Just south of Loyola University - nice quiet area. Our family of 4 was visiting Chicago for Spring Break. Our host was great - everything was detailed out for us we had ZERO issues. We did the garage parking; however, we have a larger (quad cab) truck which made parking the first night a little difficult. Once again, our Host was easily reachable and made accommodations for us to utilize a different spot!

Aside from the beautiful views of the lake, we enjoyed the nearby park and shopping within walking distance. We took in a Bulls game after a day at Navy Pier and Millennium Park, Medieval Times, LEGOLAND. We were also able to visit Lincoln Park and arrive early enough to get some free on street parking.

This location is perfect - just outside of downtown. The ease of access to these activities couldn't have been better. The unit was clean and was a home away from home. Fun trip - would stay here again.

Quiet condo with easy access to downtown

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week over a normally noisy holiday but were surprised at how quiet it was. The condo is homey and clean, feels spacious for a one-bedroom, and has plenty of linens, blankets, pillows, towels, shampoo, etc. Our hostess provided coffee and a couple of breakfast staples, which was great since we got in late and didn't have time to shop. We also ate at several good restaurants within walking distance. The bus and metro are both close by, which made it very easy to get downtown. I really enjoyed being by the lake and taking walks on the beach early in the morning while my family slept in. All in all a great stay!
