A nice place to stay in the west Chicago suburbs

  • 4 of 5

The house was just what we needed as we were attending a family wedding. The owners were very attentive and responsive to anything that we needed. They also accommodated our early arrival. Having breakfast and all of the cooking supplies was a big help for us to feel comfortable in the home. There was plenty of towels, linens and toiletries if we needed them. The only feedback we have is a recommendation to replace the sofa in the first floor living room and upgrade the antennae for the televisions for better reception. The neighborhood was clean and it felt safe. The places to eat in the area recommended by Eileen were great suggestions.

An FYI for anyone who is considering a pick up truck as a rental during their stay. The village considers pick up trucks a commercial vehicles and to park it along the street you need a permit or you get a ticket. It was easy to correct the issue and the village police were helpful but it could be rather a surprise if you didn't know ahead of time.

Great place to stay near Chicago

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly as the description read, if not better. Immaculately kept, full of supplies as in towels, soap, shampoos. Plenty of cooking utensils, dishes, trash bags. And the breakfast provided made mornings just so much easier and leisurely. We rented a car and had a parking space available right in front of the house. Even so, we used a cab part of the time and they were very prompt. The owners really take excellent care of this place. It is like 2 homes in one, with a kitchen both upstairs and down. Definitely looking forward to another stay here.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO rentals in many different cities and states, and this is one of the best. The owner was very helpful, including leaving us groceries to start us off on our stay. Everything we needed was in the duplex, including a fully stocked kitchen, towels, bed linens, even umbrellas! The neighborhood felt very safe and had many local stores and restaurants nearby. We ended up driving into Chicago each day, which was cheaper for us than the train...we reserved parking online and got discounted rates, and avoided rush hours...worked out great. The duplex is very spacious and reasonably priced, especially when compared to hotel rates in the City. Parking on the street was no problem...never had an issue getting a space...and was free! :) We had a great visit!

Had everything we needed, and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This house is so cute, and had everything we needed. We arrived late, and it was a real plus to have breakfast items already in the refridgerator the next morning. The kitchen was well stocked, and the beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood is quaint and quiet, and close to grocery stores, gas stations, etc. The hosts were very nice and made sure we were ok with everything. I would definitely stay here again.
