Large, Bright, Sunny apt in beautiful Logan square
Everything was exactly as pictured at this spacious 3 bedroom apartment in Logan square. The place was super clean and the owner was wonderful to work with. Would most definitely rent again!!
Pokemon Fest weekend
This was my first trip to Chicago and driving downtown was crazy! So many cars & people! We loved the fact that we were able to park almost in front of the building and we didn't have to pay for parking or carry our luggage far. The unit has been updated with a keypad for entry. We felt very safe staying here. You could tell that it has been recently renovated and the beds were comfortable and the towels looked brand new. Thank you for having water and drinks in the frig. We will definitely stay here again next year when we come back for the Pokemon Fest!
Thank you so much for staying. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and we would love to host you next year again!
Nice Owner But Mixed Feelings On Property
A friend and I stayed two nights in this property. Admittedly, she is more observant than I am and she had heard some horror stories about apartment rentals which maybe made her even more cautious and observant.
First, the positives: I messaged back and forth with the owner and she seems nice, friendly and responsive. She seemed to care about the property and our time there. The location was good for our plans the price was good relative to others in the area. The inside of the property looked like it had been recently renovated and it matched the pictures. The furnishings, especially in the bedrooms, were pretty basic, but acceptable. There was a nice flatscreen TV with streaming options. These are the reasons I give 3 stars.
For the negative: the facade on the front of the property looked like it was separated from the house and in disrepair. After we walked in the front door, the door leading to the first floor apartment had a broken window that had been "repaired" with cardboard. We didn't get in until around 8:30, and the owner left the key in the lock, not worried because "the apartment was on the second floor and no one would go up there." I was generally okay with this, but my friend was concerned. The key unlocks the deadbolt on the front door, but there were no other locks to secure it or the back door from the inside. (In hotels you often get that bar you can flip across the door to secure it from the inside.) That also made my friend uncomfortable, since we didn't know a previous renter hadn’t made a copy of the key. Nothing terrible, but it would have been nice if we could have secured it aside from the key. My friend noticed a strong smell of "dog", likely from the dog barking downstairs, but she seems to be okay after getting some Fabreeze. Other than that, one electric outlet was missing its faceplate, it looked like the floor had not been swept, and the toilet had not been cleaned.
The last comment has nothing to do with the property, but it was located adjacent to a corner store with graffiti-tagged corrugated steel security doors at night. As we pulled into the unfamiliar neighborhood at dusk, it did not give us a welcome feeling, but that may just be typical of Chicago and/or city apartment rentals.
In summary, we spent a fair amount for two nights in what was otherwise a fairly spacious apartment, but there were some things that will likely cause me not to use this service again.
The building was recently rehabbed and it is a "greystone". It looks architecturally as it should. There is nothing in "disrepair" with the front of the building other than the porch has to painted. The front door to MY unit has broken glass due to a moving accident. Since we are keeping the historical integrity of the building we are waiting on a special order for the glass. the whole thing broke.
I'm sorry your friend was concerned about the key into the unit. My husband is a police officer, I have a large dog and the entire neighborhood knows each other so we feel very safe in our building but I will look for interior alarms, a hotel lock or sensors for the future.
The dog has never been in the unit and that's the first we have heard of ANYONE noticing our dog if he doesn't bark.
I swept and cleaned the unit prior to arrival including cleaning the toilet so I am unsure of what exactly I missed but I do apologize if it was not to your standard.
Yes, the corner store has graffiti on the outside safety gates. This is in no way indictive of the crime rates of the area. "Logan Square" is one of the newest, most sought after, vibrant sections of the city of Chicago with five star restaurants and night life. This is my personal home, we live in the first floor unit and I feel very safe here. My husband is a police officer that works in this very neighborhood. However I understand that this type of city living may not be for all guests. HomeAway is meant to give a true "home away from home" experience living amongst the locals, whereas others may seek a more tourist focused area in a hotel.
