The Space

I have a 1br condo in a hi rise near Chicago's Belmont Harbor. It is centrally located in a nice neighborhood with views of Lake Michigan from all windows. My neighborhood is 3 miles from downtown Chicago, everything is within walking distance (bars, restaurants, Starbucks, grocery stores).

I (email hidden) and/or pullout couch to rent to non smokers. Small dogs under 20 lbs are allowed. The hi rise association does not allow large dogs on premises.

The view from my roofdeck on the 43rd floor is completely unobstructed and you can even grill out on the roof while overlooking the city skyline!

I have a bed that sleeps 2 adults comfortably. . There is a sofabed which can accommodate a child or small adult. The mattress & frame do not support a lot of weight.

If I receive multiple or competitive requests for the same timeframe, preference is always given to those with positive reviews over those non reviewed and to those staying for a longer period of time.

FREE parking for Chicago Marathon participants!

  • We stayed at Sheila's for 4 days when our place (just up the street) was getting painted. Sheila was an exceptional host, she left us a very nice bottle of wine. She gave us an informative tour of the buiding and amenities. She really made us feel at home. The place was clean and comfortable, and had AMAZING views of the park & lake.

    Even though we are reviewing this as locals, I can honestly say that this would be a perfect spot for 2 people visiting Chicago. The location is ideal, right outside Lincoln Park, you are very close to restaurants/bars but they are a block or two away so you don't get any of the noise. Public transportation that takes you to downtown/mag mile is right across the street (literally), or honestly if you like long-ish walks through the park you could easily walk to mag mile/downtown (that's what we do when it's nice out).

    Very great place to stay. Thanks again Sheila!

    Response from Sheila:

    Sorry about that. The tv is new and the remotes, either i did something wrong it got messed up when the cleaning people unplugged it. They do that to use the outlets. I will make sure to look out for that. I never watch tv, sorry!

  • I did not end up staying after arrival. The location is marvelous and the space itself is nice. However, after walking into the apartment I realized I could not stay due to the very strong pet smell.

    I moved into a cancellation at a hotel downtown.

    Apparently I missed the fact that pets lived on site. Otherwise, Sheila was very accomodating. I understood that she could not refund me as she does advertise that she has a pet. She made my arrival very easy and great parking on site.

    For the pet lover, this (email hidden).

  • Sheila was very friendly and her apartment had a beautiful view. She had everything you would need to cook and was close enough to bars and restaurants if you wanted to walk or grab a cab and go out.

  • Sheila's place was wonderful! Such a great location, great view, super easy access to a bus that goes downtown, not to mention a beautiful , immaculate condo with a magnificent view of Lake Michigan (which looks like the ocean) Sheila was so kind and made it so easy to have access to her place. I highly recommend her place!! Chicago is a fantastic city!

  • We had a great stay at Sheila's home. It was a great location to explore Chicago and had a very nice view. Parking was inexpensive and convenient. The great view included Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. Sheila's home was very comfortable and pleasant.

  • Sheila is a gracious hostess and very thoughtful. She knew that we were going to attend the Cubs-Cards game and had peanuts, Cracker Jacks, and bottles of water for us. She has a very nice apartment with a fantastic location overlooking Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. I highly recommend Sheila's apartment for comfort, location, and reasonable cost.

I am a political consultant who works a fair distance from home and long hours, so I decided to try renting my place and stay with friends in the suburbs. Thus far, it has turned out really well. I have had some quality people stay at my 1 br condo and just love it! I enjoy my neighborhood and all that it has to offer, which includes a wide array of restaurants, coffee shops, a safe area, the lake right across the street, the harbor, easy transportation and everything you would need within walking distance. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do.
