Great stay in the heart of Chicago

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a nice place to stay with a large group, look no further. This property is stunning, and located on a charming street just off Michigan Ave. We loved our stay in this house, and would absolutely stay here again.

A Family Oasis in an Urban Setting

  • 5 of 5

On our drive back to Indianapolis, my son said that "this was one of the best family vacations we have ever had." When we decided to spend a week in Chicago, we debated on the best place to stay; one that would accommodate my wife and myself, our children, their spouses, and their children - ages 7, 5, 3 and 2. We have visited Chicago many times over the years and each of us has our favorite thing to do. However, it was the first time for our grandchildren and we wanted this initial visit to be a special memory. The house and its location turned out to be an inspired choice. Beautifully restored, thoughtfully designed and decorated, the two floors allowed for privacy if needed, while the large dining/living area served as an ideal gathering space for the entire family. Check-in was a breeze; casual yet professional. The Gold Coast location was near to public transportation, but also an inexpensive cab or uber ride to shopping, museums, Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo, etc. In the middle of the week, our five-year-old grandson, returning after a full day visiting Chinatown, Navy Pier and the Shedd, asked if we were going back to our house. "No", we said, "we're not done with our vacation.". "I know that", he replied, "I meant our Chicago house!" We'll be back.

Wonderful Time In Chicago!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend in Chicago at Cedar Street! The house was great, the amenities fantastic, and the location perfect! What really set it apart, thought, was the property manager Gabrielle. Anything we needed, she was there in a moment's notice! It is service like that that made me absolutely positive I will return for my next trip to Chicago. I would absolutely recommend.

Great property, perfect location, wonderful service

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a wedding and stayed 6 nights. Our group included 2 toddlers and a 6 year old, as well as grandparents. This house suited us perfectly. The location, with its proximity to the Magnificent Mile, is unbelievable. It's hard to believe that such a nice, quiet street exists so close to the shops and restaurants of downtown Chicago. The house itself is beautiful and well-appointed, with a dining table that can easily accommodate 10 people. Amenities for children include a pack-and-play, a portable bed, an umbrella stroller, and even stuffed animals and children's books. Gabrielle, who manages the property, lives across the street and could not have been more helpful in terms of greeting us, orienting us to the house and to the neighborhood, and arranging for our parking passes. She even stocked the fridge and cupboards with more water, iced tea, coffee, and snacks than we could get through during our stay. We would highly recommend this property and would love to stay here again!

Beautiful Property in the Heart of Chicago's Gold Coast!

  • 5 of 5

This is THE best VRBO rental I have ever had. We were looking for a centralized location, beautiful property, with all the amenities to support our girls weekend in Chicago. I used to live in the neighborhood 15 years ago and the attention to detail on this property was impeccable. We had some ladies with very high standards -- all were amazed at how delightful our accommodations were. Checkin/Checkout was super easy and there are many of us that are already planning a return stay at some point this fall. This place is definitely a 10!
