About the property

1-bedroom or studio available less than a block to the lakefront

Steps from the lakefront, our 1 bedroom and our studio units are located on a quiet tree-lined street on the eastern edge of the Wrigleyville neighborhood. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy being less than 1 block from the lakefront running/biking/walking/rollerblading trail, lakefront golf course, tennis courts, beach, volleyball, and Belmont Harbor. The City of Chicago Divvy bicycle rental is right around the corner to allow you to explore the city with numerous drop off locations throughout Chicago. Lakeshore Drive Express bus #146 to Michigan Ave shopping, the museum campuses and the Loop are moments away.  The “L” train stop at Sheridan is a few blocks away and Wrigley Field is a short 6 block walk. Top restaurants, plenty of nightlife, the Jewel grocery store, and a Target store all within walking distance.  

We have both a one bedroom & studio unit for rent. Each unit comes complete with all the amenities to make this your home away from home including dishes, glasses, pots, pans, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, condiments, etc.  15 washers and 15 dryers available in laundry facility located on first floor of building.  

These are wonderful condos for guests without a car, for active families with children who enjoy the amenities of the lakefront, for a couple wanting a romantic weekend in the city or for an extended stay for a business trip.  You can also rent both units for a great getaway weekend with friends. Perfect option as a stay for dropping off and visiting children at various universities and colleges including DePaul University, Loyola University, Northwestern University, University of Illinois-Chicago, and University of Chicago.

The 1-bedroom has a king size Tempur-Pedic bed and the studio has a queen bed. Both units have hardwood floors, marble bathrooms, and granite countertops in the kitchen.  The studio unit has a sunny eastern exposure with beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the surrounding lakefront as well as cherry floors and cabinets and sleeps 4 .  The one bedroom has a southern exposure with tree top views of the cozy one way street.  The living room has a couch that doubles as a twin bed and we have provided an extra twin bed beneath for sleeping up to 4.

About Deana

We bought a couple units in a vintage building on a quiet tree lined street with the hopes that our teenage children will return to Chicago after college and love living in Chicago as young adults. Until then, we want to share our special spaces with those who will appreciate a clean, affordable alternative to a sterile hotel.

Why Deana chose Chicago

We love hosting friends and family in the best city in the world, Chicago. Our units provide us the opportunity to share our city with people who want to spend a weekend, week, month, or longer in a great location close to all Chicago has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Best location to take advantage of all Chicago offers - culture, history, shopping, sporting events, nightlife, exercise, and waterfront. Each season has something different to offer our guests. Come make your own memories.

Great neighborhood, great space

  • 4 of 5

There were lots of pluses in this apartment...very comfortable bed, clean, nice neighborhood (very quiet), well supplied kitchen. Deana was very responsive to our inquiries and gave us good tips about the neighborhood. The apartment was a nice size with lots of storage space for clothes, etc.

The only negatives were an Internet that didn't work that well and a rather annoying noise that we believe came from the security door, so anytime anyone went in or out it made a rumbling noise. We eventually got used to it during the day and were able to sleep through it, but lighter sleepers may have a problem.

Overall, I would recommend this apartment to future renters. It worked out great for us for a two night stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Deb for the nice review of our 1-bedroom condo. Next time you are in Chicago, please considering trying out our studio with the view of Lake Michigan. (We found out what the rumbling sound is. It is a water pump that the building management assured us they are replacing soon & should alleviate the rumbly noise you heard.) Hope you return soon! Thanks again for staying with us!

The almost lakefront location of this apartment is phenomenal! Less than 1 block from the lakefront running/biking/walking/rollerblading trail, lakefront golf course, tennis courts, beach, volleyball & Belmont Harbor. The City of Chicago Divvy bicycle rental is right around the corner with lots of bicycle drop off stops around the city. Marine Drive Express bus to Michigan Ave shopping & sites is just several feet away at the corner of Lakeshore Dr & Irving Park Rd. The El train stop is a few blocks away & Wrigley Field is a short 6 block walk. Lots of restaurants, the Jewel grocery store & Target all nearby.

We have a one bedroom & studio apartment for rent. Complete with all the amenities of home.
