This unit is an officially licensed Chicago Vacation Rental. License #2438049

There’s nothing average about this 4-bedroom, 3-bath apartment in Lakeview. Whether it’s the vast interior with plenty of elbow room for 10 people, the premier location in one of Chicago’s most vibrant neighborhoods or the elegant design and unique appointments, there’s plenty of reasons to make this vacation rental the setting for your getaway.

Plan your day’s adventures in ample gathering spaces and re-charge in private bedrooms with quality mattresses. Clean, comfortable and cool, this space gives you all the energy you need to tackle your list of city must-see’s.

This extra-spacious duplex offers double the space of your average apartment: with two levels and two living areas, half your group can enjoy intimate movie nights on one end of the home while the other half gathers to chat and laugh on the other. No matter how different your group’s personalities, they’ll be able to agree on this: there’s no place to enjoy Chicago quite like this home.

GATHER

Two spacious living areas are perfect settings for re-grouping with your fellow travelers after you’ve spent a day immersed in the history, culture and excitement of Windy City.

In a large, casual living area, you’ll feel plush carpeting underfoot as you kick off your shoes and relax on white leather sofas or a chaise lounge. Ample and adjustable lighting puts you in control of the mood: dim it down to watch a movie on the flat-screen TV or keep your space bright to enjoy lively conversation late into the night.

A second, formal living area has intimate seating for 3 atop a boldly patterned rug. This space opens directly onto a dining room washed in natural light from a bay of windows. Share dinner and stories at a classic dark wood table with matching chairs for 8.

Sleek and inviting, the kitchen offers a quiet and enjoyable place to prepare your favorite dishes when a night on the town isn’t on tap. Shining granite countertops, dark wood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances lend this space style and sophistication. A large center island is perfect for meal preparation and help-yourself dinners.

RELAX

The best Chicago vacations balance big city exhilaration with premier comfort. With four luxury bedrooms, this duplex beckons you to sink into a plush bed at the end of the day, made up in freshly laundered, high-quality linens. All are decorated with upscale contemporary style that’s sure to please even the savviest city-goer.

Enjoy a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, en-suite bath and large bedside window for city views and natural light. A spacious second bedroom offers a queen, and two additional bedrooms each have a queen and a twin, perfect for small families or close friends.

Every traveler will hit the city ready and refreshed with two shared full baths in addition to the master. Each is sparkling clean and modernly designed with large mirrors, quality tile floors and single-sink vanities.

EXPLORE

The heart and soul of the city is right here in Lakeview, an authentic neighborhood just a few minutes’ drive from downtown. Experience Chicago in its truest form, with all its charms and hidden gems, when you stay in this lakefront community where entertainment, culture and dining abound.

The shops and restaurants of Southport Corridor are yours to explore. After a day combing designer boutiques on Southport Avenue, enjoy local beers and hip digs at the warehouse-style Corridor Brewery and Provisions, innovative rolls and floor-to-ceiling street views at Rise Sushi & Sake or comfort food and friendly warmth at Crosby’s Kitchen.

Entertainment is easy to come by with well-regarded theaters just a walk away. See a play at Mercury Theater, a city gem, or midnight movie at Music Box Theatre, which bills itself as Chicago’s year-round film festival. Or for an apple-pie-American afternoon, catch a ball game at Wrigley Field, just 7 blocks away.

Chicago River Canoe & Kayak offers you the chance to see another side of the Windy City with River Rambles trips through secluded streams or Skyscraper Canyon treks straight through the heart of downtown. Locals and tourists alike can be found strolling and celebrating in Lincoln Park, home to one of the country’s oldest zoos.

Great location, large and roomy property.

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families staying at the property during Christmas. It was perfect location, close to wrigleyville and southport ave has a lot of popular shops ( athlete, gap, lou and gray and some great boutiques) all within a mile of the property. Easy to get to "L" which was about .5 mile walk and easy trip downtown. Some great places to eat and drink. Piggery is right around the corner and was great--offers breakfast on weekends and great bar. We had to cook christmas eve and christmas dinner so if you plan on cooking there is not a lot of options for cookware in condo. We had to have families that drove bring all their cookware. It was very clean, basic bedding,towels-- need to be upgraded. Master bath shower never got even warm water--but there is also a shower/tub and that was hot and strong flow of water. Very nice they did supply extra toilet paper and shampoo/conditioner. The 2 bedrooms downstairs were very cold at night -- not sure why. Very easy access from back alley--only 1 parking spot in back which was occupied many times with the restaurant next store--very frustrating to have to go ask someone to move their car especially when snowing and cold. We loved the condo the location and would definitely stay again.

Spacious and comfy

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us shared the condo for a 4-day ball game weekend, and had a blast! The condo is decked out just as shown in the photos, and everyone had plenty of space. The neighbourhood is terrific and we enjoyed lots of walks in many directions. Highly recommend the Long Bar and the Piggery, not a ten minute walk away. Thanks, Matt - we enjoyed our stay!

many surprises.......

  • 2 of 5

We read the description and thought this would be a great place for seven of us to stay for our four-day visit to Chicago. Initially I was worried about the neighborhood, but we had no problems with it.

The kitchen is well equipped, but the apartment is not well furnished. Minimal at best. Bedrooms are just a place to sleep. Bedding is not luxurious. The wonderful dining table described is stained and there are chairs on one side, but only a bench on the other.

Biggest concern and surprise was access to the apartment. We drove down the alley and parked on the concrete parking slab. The multi-story apartment house is not attractive or inviting from the back. Trash in the yard. A broken chair on the deck (pic). But, we figured this was OK for moving in.

Another surprise, this was the ONLY way to gain access to the apartment. I contacted Matt and asked about keys so we could come in from the street. No keys are available. The only way is through the combination lock on the door in the back. The access to the back of the apartment is down the alley! (pic.) I asked Matt if the alley was safe to walk down at night. (We turned our car in the first night and used public transit after that.) He didn't reply directly, but said we could use a narrow corridor between our building and the one next door. It had a broken lock on the gate by the sidewalk...next to the empty beer bottle and cigarette butt. The corridor is completely unlit and has a step on which it is easy to trip in the dark.

The porch light which would light up the back entrance that faces the alley is broken. (pic) Had to use the light from our phones to do the combination to open the door.

The master bedroom has a nice walk-in shower. One of our guests stood in it for ten minutes waiting for the water to turn hot. Finally they moved over to the tub that has a shower. I mentioned this to Matt and he replied that he knew that the shower in that bedroom needed attention. In another bathroom what once must have been a towel ring is just two empty screw holes. (pic) The mirror light was missing a light bulb. (pic)

This was our first use of VRBO and will probably be our last. This apartment felt like a minimally furnished cash cow. Certainly no owner would actually live in this spartan apartment. All the glowing words in the description don't sync with the dismal, scary alley entrance.

(I thought I could attach pictures, but the site doesn't allow i

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for a family of eight. Great location to easily get downtown and to Montrose Beach. Easy walking distance to plenty of unique eateries and to Wrigley. A school is right across the street with playground and green space for kids to enjoy. Matt was very responsive to questions.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised! Photos were accurate and Matt the manager was excellent to deal with - quick response time to queries and very helpful during our stay! If you want lots of clean living and sleeping space, modern updated amenenites then this is the place for you. Excellent location for wrigley field (walkable 15 minutes) and downtown via nearby transit (subway and bus) system with 7 minute walk. Plus lots of great restaurants within neighbourhood and walking distance. We were a group of 8 (4 couples) and the 4 bedrooms were spacious and beds very comfortable - perfect for our group. Would stay here again.
