Owner is nut and potentially dangerous

  • 1 of 5

We rented the place for three days. After a couple of days, I was harassed by a man while standing with my 81 year-old father in front of the townhouse, waiting for the rest of our party. The man said that he had been observing and filming me for two days and that I had been littering, which was not true. Man also said that we were standing on his property ( the sidewalk of a public street). An argument unsued because the man started to insist that I tell him where we were living which I refused to do starting to fear for our safety. After further argument, it turned out the man was the owner who lived across the street. The owner, who had that point had been joined by a co-owner, then said he could ask us to leave his property. Having prepaid for the entire stay, we did not take this seriously and left the scene. An hour later, I received an email asking us to leave the rental by 6 pm and that we would be met at the door by body guards. Seriously worried for our safety we left before 6 pm. We are trying to get a refund from VRBO.

Interestingly, I had been concerned, prior to renting the place, by a review, that said that the owners were temperamental. Morality: never rent a place with negative reviews.

Wonderful weekend getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 old high school friends had a wonderful reunion at this lovely graystone unit. The condo is in a wonderful location and is beautifully decorated and appointed. The owner's are thoughtful hosts....everything you could want is available in the kitchen and bathrooms. There's lots of room for hanging around and catching up and a large dining room table for group meals. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return another time. Thanks for a great weekend!

The Lap of Luxary

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a week in this glamorous, cozy brownstone. From the moment we pulled up, we knew this was a gem! Located on a tree-lined, upscale block- just a stone's throw from the glitz and glam of Michigan Avenue- this was the perfect landing spot for our family. Nicole was there to greet us, with fireplaces and lights on for a warm welcome after a long day of travel. Every detail has been carefully considered by the friendly and professional management team. I've stayed in several high-end vacation rentals around the world, and this one takes the cake! From plush bedding, to AMAZING bathrooms, to the fireplace in the master bedroom! It's difficult to paint a picture of just how wonderful this place is! Gorgeous woodwork, three well-appointed bedrooms, flameless candles and aroma diffusers to create a relaxing vibe, flawless decorating, plenty of snacks and water bottles, bath products, Q-TIPS!!, the list goes on. It was so lovely, we didn't want to go home! Thank you again Nicole for all you did to make this a 5 Star experience for our family! We LOVED it!!!
