About the property

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 building 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.

This is a combination of vrbo #682966 and vrbo # 685840. So you get two of everything and more all under one roof.

We have a 2 huge living rooms with a flat screen TVs and comfy brand new couches. Either of the two formal dining rooms are perfect for large gatherings, the expandable dining tables can seat up to 12 comfortably for large dinner parties. The brand new large chefs kitchens are 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, a card table, a sitting area and a bar with 6 stools with a fridge. You'll never want to leave!! There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on this level too. The top floor offers 4 bedrooms, 2 brand new bathrooms, another dining room, another kitchen, amazing views and a balcony. The outside features an expansive private patio with a table for 6 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 all of 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.

Why Steve chose Chicago

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.

Great location and space!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our needs -- 8 adults gathering in the city for a team retreat. We were all able to comfortably sit around the dining table for a meal one night. The beds were comfortable and clean, as was the rest of the house. Check-in and check-out were very easy, and Steve was quite responsive to my many questions prior to our stay. Would definitely recommend!

Perfect for a Large Group! Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to bring a group of 18 teenagers and 7 adults to Chicago for sightseeing. It was perfect for our needs!

The location of the house was great; not too far from the subway. We drove to Chicago and then took public transportation from the house, so this worked great for us, especially since the weather was nice! Parking was a bit tight, but we were able to fit our four vehicles, including two larger ones, into the space provided. Also, this is very near Wrigley Field.

Lots of space in the house allowed us to spread out and relax. We appreciated the extra large dining tables for large groups like ours to be able to share a meal or play games. The bedrooms were very nice on the upper two levels and the living rooms were very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool table.

The house was comfortably furnished with lots of couches, nice spacious kitchens, and clean linens. The basement level was a bit damp and cool. Some mentioned a musty smell. The upper two levels were sunny and pleasant. Everyone wanted to stand on the little deck on the top floor.

We loved staying here and I would book it again if we are in the area with a big group. Highly recommended if you have a big group or need lots of space!

"I loved everything about the house. I thoroughly liked the house." - one of our teens

Wrigleyville Wonder!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 15 had a fabulous stay here for a reunion, with people ranging in age from 9 to 79. Lots of great spaces for adults and kids to spread out and hang out. And to be literally 2 blocks from Wrigley was amazing. Recommend it highly. Only caution is for young kids and elderly people, steep stairs in some parts (with no railings in some cases) make it a bit challenging, but main floor works great for all.

Perfect space for a big group!!

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a wonderful neighborhood and is HUGE - perfect for a big group. Two great kitchens and bathrooms are spacious and easy for everyone to share. It's a bit hard to find the sheets, etc, but once we did there wasn't anything we were lacking/looking for. Owner was responsive when we had questions re: internet, getting in, etc.

Boys Weekend in Chicago

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with a group of 12 guys to see a game at Wrigley and experience Chicago. This house was perfect for our group. Plenty of beds and bathrooms. Front patio and basement bar room were great gathering places (although the pool table has seen better days). Beds and linens were fine. HVAC was great. Location could not have been better. Liquor store directly across the street was very convenient. These are not luxury accommodations, but for what we needed, the house was absolutely perfect. I would recommend it to any large group traveling to Chicago, and we would absolutely stay here again.

Very large. Perfect for big groups and families.

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units, so all three floors. With two kitchens and plenty of bedrooms, everyone was comfortable. The kitchen had all we needed to cook meals (feasts), and it was close to everything we needed. I would HIGHLY recommend using Instacart for all grocery and alcohol needs. There are plenty of options that deliver to the house through that service. It's a really lovely location to walk around. I even walked to the lakefront, took my dog to the dog beach and walked back. 5.4mile round trip. Easy and a beautiful walk. Awesome. Loved having the parking space there. Wrigley was steps away. Very nice for going to games, but do make sure you know the game schedule when you stay. The traffic and hoards of people can surprise you but it doesn't hinder you in any way. Ubers are still quick to come and traffic moves right along with traffic cops guiding and the pedestrian fans are all very nice. We had a group of 10, mostly males who are used to less than roomy accommodations. Do not expect lush bedding and modern decor or anything extremely luxurious. It's roomy and more than our basic needs were met. This is a place perfect for a bunch of bros to eat, drink, and be merry while staying in Chicago for games and reunions. Although we didn't have children with us, I think it's perfect for a multi-family vacation or reunion. I have no complaints. It couldn't have been more perfect for what we needed. We would definitely stay here again.
