I love my neighborhood because it is quiet, but close to the main attractions and there are always people around. It is close to beaches, parks, nightlife, public transportation, grocery stores, etc. It is beautiful to just walk around the neighborhood. There is green (trees, flowers) everywhere and beautiful houses. It's a unique area that's closest to downtown.
There's a few bus stops half a block to a block away. There is also a red line stop a block away as well. Everything is pretty close though so you may not even need to use public transportation.
Quiet times are from 10pm-9am on weekdays and 11pm-9am on weekends.
There is a 24 hour doorman.
Only throw human waste and toilet paper in the toilet.
Pool and gym are on top floor overlooking Hancock building as well as lake and rest of Chicago skyline.
Overall a very positive experience. Aida was very helpful and responsive. I would rate my contact and experience with Aida as A+. The apartment is quite small and lacks a TV - normally not a problem but since it was the World Cup a TV would have been nice. The stairs are quite steep and anyone who has problems with stairs would probably be somewhat uncomfortable. The location is excellent with restaurants, bars, drugstores etc and the subway is very close to the apartment.
Aida's place was extremely well located and very nice. We enjoyed the nice views from the window. We found everything we needed to cook. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom and shower were fine. For us, the highlight was definitely the location, with awesome restaurants and shops at the doorstep and a great grocery store (Plum's) for house cooked meals (+ great Intelligentsia Coffee) a few minutes away. Public transit connections were excellent. Communication with Aida was excellent. We would rent again without hesitation.
The apartment is comfortable and well-located. Aida checked in many times to make sure that I had everything I needed. A very nice experience overall.
Great location,very convenient and calm neighborhood.
Aida was very helpful and responsive . In addition it was possible to have a free parking in the street because of the stickers she had provided. It was a hassle free walk in and out as she made arrangements to have the keys available by the doorman. My schedule was hectic as usual in a business trip and Aida made it really easy for me. Thank you!
Aida is an excellent host. Her place was ready for us and in a perfect location. The building is well-equipped with an indoor pool, workout room, laundry facilities and a doorman, and it easily accessible to everything you need in terms of transportation, supplies and entertainment. Our communication was excellent and Aida was so easy to work with!
This apartment was AMAZING. It was beautiful, comfortably furnished, had a wonderful view and the nicest, most polite doormen.
Excellent location, close to bars, restaurants, a block away from the red line and the bus stop. I felt really comfortable and safe going for a run in the area on my own, or just exploring.
Everything you could need was literally a block or two away, grocery store right around the corner, Walgreens across the street, Starbucks, Fedex.... all close by and open late or 24 hours for last minute needs. The beach was four blocks away, with a really beautifully kept bike trail. I went for runs on the lakeside trail almost daily and was always comfortable and delighted with the view.
The apartment itself was amazing, its a duplex so the sleeping area/bathroom is located upstairs and the living area/kitchen was on the first floor. I really liked the separation, it made for a very comfortable space to reside in. When I arrived everything was clean and orderly, Aida was very clear about getting me all the information I needed for setting up the internet, where to find the laundry/workout room/pool etc.
The neighbors were quiet and polite. No issues with noise or privacy even a little bit.
I felt really comfortable staying here, having been in town for work for a few weeks, it was a wonderful home away from home.
The best part of the whole experience, however was Aida herself. Kind, responsive, and accommodating, Aida made sure my stay was 100% comfortable the entire time. She made sure there were street parking vouchers available to me, gave me a rundown of the city because I wasn't super familiar, and was just a real delight to communicate with. Also, my work schedule is so crazy and Aida was so sweet and understanding about me changing my mind about when I would be arriving every ten minutes.
All in all, this is my favorite place that I have stayed at via AirBnB thus far. The location, view and atmosphere were the most wonderful everrrrr. :) I would book again in a heartbeat and plan to !
Apartment was exactly as described in a great part of town. Aida was a wonderful hostess, very easy to work with and flexible regarding details. I'd happily book again.
