Quality Experience

  • 5 of 5

We 3 mature, professional women shared this beautifully appointed Brownstone apartment for a long winter weekend celebrating our birthdays while braving the frigid Chicago temps. This well-situated VRBO, on a quiet Chicago street with ample parking, is exceptionally appointed with high end kitchen appliances and utensils, scrumptiously thick bath towels with numerous bathroom beauty supplies, delightful and welcomed heated floors, wonderfully comfortable beds/linens, and beautiful, numerous, and comfortable conversation areas.

Obviously all of the above would fall short without attention to travelers' needs during their stay. With that said, Nicole, the manager, was attentive to some ongoing needs during the exceptional frigid Chicago weather. I applaud her attentive spirit and her creative solutions to keeping us warm and comfortable. I also applaud Michael, their IT person, for his expertise and patience, which allowed us to watch multiple movies in the comfort of this lovely environment. If you don't stay here, you will have missed a quality experience.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home fro a family vacation. We usually stay in a hotel when we visit Chicago. With 5 kids, aged, 26 to 10, we thought this would be a nice change. Everything was perfect. The home is gorgeous, clean, and in a great location. We could all do different things and still spend lots of time together. I cooked 2 nights and everything I could possibly need was available. From check in to check out,everything went smoothly. I left a valuable necklace behind, (after departure), and it was located and mailed to me immediately. Management could not have been nicer. So much better than a hotel!

I would give it 10 stars if I could!!!

  • 5 of 5

I've used VRBO many times in many different areas and I can't say enough good things about the location as well as the management and service. The location......PERFECT!!!! Can walk to anything and everything, even in late November. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment that can accommodate whatever your taste. Location is in a beautiful secure neighborhood, close to the lake as well. The actual brownstone was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Tastefully decorated to accent the original beauty of the home. Everything was clean, updated and upscale including Snacks and drinks upon our arrival. Could not have been more pleased. The management and service.....OUTSTANDING!!!! As I mentioned, this is not my first experience with VRBO, and my experience with Celeste Properties was superior. Prompt responses and professional on all levels. Already, received my deposit back.

Like I said this is a 10 star location handled by a 10 star management service. Looking at booking with the again this Fall. Thank you for helping make our Chicago weekend a great experience and I look forward to doing business with you again!

Wonderful, beautifully decorated property in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property! We wanted to be near family that lives in the Gold Coast but didn't want to stay in a hotel over the holiday. The huge living room with seating for everyone was awesome. The bedrooms were cozy and beautifully decorated. We really appreciated the snacks, water, juice and coffee. It's nice not to have to bring these things for a short trip. The laundry room is right next to the bedrooms and would have been very convenient for a longer trip. Nicole was excellent and gave a thorough tour at check in.....appreciated the easy to use tv, games, music system( not always the case when you rent a home). We also enjoyed the two fireplaces. We had 4 adults and a college student so having a set of keys for everyone was very helpful. We wished we had stayed one more day!
