I have 18 fully-furnished apartments in the Oak Park/Forest Park area. These apartments are in building that I own and manage. To see all my listings click on my profile pic and look for "Kevin's Listings".

From "Lucy" (Jan 2020): "I can't say enough nice things about this beautiful space! It was a coup to find such a tremendous value in the Chicago area. The charming neighborhood was a delight to be able to walk to boutiques and restaurants. The apartment was incredibly well-designed and featured a very tranquil palette. The apartment was well stocked with everything that you could possibly need. Kevin was an attentive host and fantastic at communication. I hope to stay here on future visits!"

Everything is new in this fully renovated studio apartment in a vintage 1926 building. Easy and fast public transportation to downtown Chicago with three train lines within walking distance. Centrally located in downtown Forest Park where you will find dining, shopping and great nightlife. Historic Oak Park is just across the street. Easy access to/from O'Hare and Midway airports. Pets OK w/ pre-approval (contact host).

The apartment is located in a building with six retail storefronts on the ground level and six apartments on the second floor. I own and manage this building. The apartment recently underwent a complete renovation in 2017 and everything is new.  The apartment features a queen bed and there is a sofa sleeper if you need an additonal bed. The bedding and linens are new and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need to prepare a meal or to use regularly during a long-term stay. Parking is available on the property. Pets are welcome with pre-approval (contact host).

Where you’ll be

Forest Park, Illinois, United States

OAK PARK: Located just ten miles west of downtown Chicago - Oak Park has long been considered one of the most architecturally significant villages in the United States. Home to the world's largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture and a number of acclaimed structures built by his contemporaries, the Oak Park Area is a treasure trove of Prairie style marvels that went on to shape architectural practices across the country. Today, comfortable Victorian homes stand in Oak Park alongside Prairie style structures designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his contemporaries.

FOREST PARK: Forest Park is located just outside of Chicago and next to historic Oak Park. Located just ten miles west of downtown Chicago, Forest Park is a vibrant, active and diverse community rich in history and small-town charm with an urban feeling.
