About Stuart

My name is, Stuart. I'm a practicing attorney in Chicago. My wife and I love to travel and enjoy the great outdoors. We're animal lovers and advocates. We enjoy experiencing different cultures and foods from all over the world.

My dream was to design and build a custom home. It's now 3 years old and we look forward to sharing our home with you. We hope you enjoy the experience as much as we do.

Stuart purchased this house in 2012

Excellent getaway with 5 star accomodations! Near expressway and Metra train station. Amazing theater room, pool for everyone and high end all around. I highly recommend Casa de Stuart! Thanks Stuart for having us stay at your house.

Great Chicago Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stuart was a great host. Very easy to deal with and has the house set up very nice. House is in great shape, clean, tidy, with great amenities. Plenty of seats to accomodate our crew. Kitchen was great to cook in. The big screen in the basement theatre room was great for watching and celebrating US wins in the Olympics for our entire combined families. Had a great time in the pool while doing our Phelps and Ledicky imitations. No golds were awarded. Close to several bowling alleys and the one we went to was great...Thunderbowl!

This an outstanding place for a family reunion. Never even made it to downtown Chicago like we had planned! Had too much fun hanging out with the parents and grandkids. Beautiful home. Found plenty of space for our own "Summer Olympics". Lots of room for games and activities to keep everyone engaged. Morning walks for early risers. Plenty of tables around for late-night competitions – playing "Hearts" and marathon games of "500". A beautiful pool to hang out during the afternoon with lots of space to set up outdoor games. AND WONDERFUL HOSTS; especially Stuart who met us and showed us around when we arrived. Would highly recommend it; especially for those who simply want to re-connect and bond with their extended families under one roof. We had a ball! Signed Grampa Flynn

This home exceeded my expectancies!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a new home, clean and fully furnished with the latest appliances. I'm so glad Stuart met us when we arrived to give us a tour and show us how to operate some of the appliances. We made several trips into the city to see the Aquarium, the Museums and the Botanic Gardens. The house is big enough so that the families have some privacy, but the kids can play together and they really enjoyed the pool. Yes! I would come back here to stay again.
