Come Enjoy Chicago's best rental property. We really have it all and we are in a perfect location, you won't have more fun anywhere in the city! Our condo offers a stately layout with all the modern upgrades. We took a beautiful 1890's Chicago Brownstone and completely renovated it in 2015 sparing no expense. We have a huge living room with a flat screen TV and comfy brand new couches. The formal dining room is perfect for large gatherings, the expandable dining table can seat up to 12 comfortably for large dinner parties. The brand new large chefs kitchen is perfect for cooking up that big dinner, or for hanging out at the breakfast bar. 3 Bedrooms, a work desk (hopefully you don't need to use it) and a renovated bathroom round out the first level. The downstairs is where the real fun can be found. We have a huge, wide open rec room with an 8ft Pool table, flat screen, a card table, bar with seating for 6 and fridge. You'll never want to leave!! There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on this level too. The outside features an expansive private patio with a table for 8 and a grill. You can sit and watch as the city life goes by while you relax and enjoy a cocktail. All this, and we are in the best location in Chicago, 1 block to Wrigley field, 3 blocks to the Redline 'El' train, 2 blocks to the Southport Neighborhood and 3 blocks to Lakeview / Boystown / Halsted. With over 100 restaurants and 80 bars within half a mile, you will need to come back year after year to see just that. Come check out all of the festivals, shows at Metro, Cubs games all summer, Pride Weekend, and the general fun that is this vibrant part of the city.
I love taking beautiful old buildings and restoring them to modern elegance that people can really enjoy. When I found this place, I knew it was going to need some work, so we kept the stately old features and gave it modern features. We did this project specifically with a vacation rental in mind, so we focused on creating large communal gathering spaces for our guests to enjoy when they aren't out taking in this amazing part of the city.
There is so much going on in Lakeview/ Wrigleyville that it really never ends, no matter what you are looking for, it is here to be found - that is if you can get your group to leave the beautiful home!!
We celebrated our Christmas at this home! Eleven of us spent 3 nights.....brought our own tree and holiday decorations! It is a great location and the home had plenty of room and parking. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking our meals. The set up of the home is perfect for a large group. The bathrooms were very clean and updated. The home owner responded very quickly with all questions and was available even over the holiday. We booked the home 4-5 months prior, based on the on line pricing.....but our original quote went up due to the holiday. Just a few downsides: The lower level carpet is quite old and dirty. Some of the furniture is old and broken, including a very wobbly pool table. The lower level futon had to be propped against the wall to stay up. We were told there was a gas grill and even brought our own propane tank. Upon arrival, there was only a charcoal grill. Unfortunately, our family doesn't like the taste of charcoal. The owner said it had been stolen. We based 2 of our main meals off of the gas grill. To be honest.....with new carpet and a few pieces of furniture.....this would be the perfect house!
We stayed with a party of 11 for a bachelor party and had an amazing time. The basement's poker table, bar and pool table were perfect for us! It was very nice to have a room for everyone to sleep in and even some pull out couches if needed! The only issues we had involved a minor one with the washer and the stove. However, owner was contacted about the issues and the maintenance man was there to resolve them within an hour. The house is in a perfect location and we would definitely rent again! Thank you for a great stay!
Unit needed several light bulbs replaced. The lower level was too cool to really spend time there. Kitchen well furnished and liked having a huge table for eating. It was adequate for our needs
A uniquely great apartment. Tons of sleeping & lounging space. Would recommend to anyone with a big group in Chicago.
We (10 of us) rented Steve's entire building. Very clean and spacious. What a wonderful location. Steve was attentive and accessible. Should you need it, there are four parking spots, an added plus. The train is close, a ten minute walk and is a convenient way to get downtown or its vicinity.
Close to many restaurants and pubs. Will definitely stay at Steve's again when visiting Chicago.
We were a large group of friends who got back together in Chicago to watch the carbs in the division series. This house made everything perfect. We had an awesome time, and we couldn't believe the play is this nice was so near the ballpark. The owner was incredibly helpful and answered the phone every time we called. We could not have asked for more. Stay here if you can!
