in the heart of east lakeview, this one bed room apartment is perfect for a couple or a group of friends wanting to feel what it's like to live in the good ol' city of chicago. the lake is less than a block away, along with a charming lake path. bars, restaurants, coffee shops, public transportation (buses to downtown are steps away & the red/brown line trains are a 15 minute walk west) and more - all within walking distance. can't beat this location!
a few other notes...
all guests will have fresh linens and towels. also, anything in the fridge/kitchen is fair game. i don't keep coffee in the house, but there is a great local place at the end of the street, or there is caribou and starbucks too if you want to keep to what you know. there's a gas grill on the patio. laundry in the basement of the building which requires quarters. cable tv with HBO in case you just want a night in or need some downtime. there's an AC unit in the living room. the bedroom gets a great cross breeze with the windows open and the ceiling fan going. wifi is, of course, available too. i'll leave you the password. there's a full bed, couch and queen size air mattress available.
street parking is available, but not the easiest in this area - especially if you arrive after 6pm. i will provide passes, but i do suggest parking and leaving your car there for the duration of your trip. the CTA is very reliable, easy to navigate and safe.
if this is your first time in town, i'm more than happy to share my favorite sights and bites. i've been here for 8+ years and simply adore this town. just let me know what you're interested in and i'm sure i'll be able to recommend some things you can't miss :)

Angie was very responsive and our stay was wonderful. Everything was as advertised. This was a prime location!
Angie accurately represents her place. It was very spacious for our needs, there were three of us. She's right about parking, a little challenging, but nothing that cannot be cured with patience. We took the train and bus first day in town, which worked out for us. The number one plus of renting from Angie is her responsiveness. Very prompt!! She answered all questions in a timely fashion and even gave us restaurant suggestions, great options. I definitely put her place on my favorites list.
We had a great time at Angie's place. Everyone went as planned to get they keys, the location was great and the place looked exactly like the pictures. As Angie promised, we loved the location, walked all over and had a wonderful time! Would definitely stay there again!
Angie was very accommodating and easy to communicate with throughout our entire stay. Her place was very clean and had great security.
Angie's place is a wonderful "Old Chicago" apartment in a lovely building in a great neighborhood. The place has a lot of charm, was very clean and "user-friendly," and Angie's communication was terrific. I have been "raving" about how wonderful the accommodations were, and would definitely highly recommend Angie's place to anyone planning a trip to Chicago and wanting to stay in the Lakeview area.
Angie was a great host - I would stay here again. The place is clean, cozy, neatly decorated, and most importantly - in a great location. The building is safe/secure and it's not loud.
Angie's place is located in a safe neighborhood with many restaurants, bars, and shops all in walking distance. Getting downtown to museums and other tourist attractions is easy with public transit close by (many buses within 1-3 blocks and the Belmont stop for redline/brownline/purpleline is a 10-min walk). Angie takes the time to leave detailed instructions on tv/cable use, where extra linens/towels are, and is generous enough to allow vacationers to use the kitchen. Her place is charming and roomie enough for a family or several friends to stay comfortably. Picking up keys was also very easy and Angie is accessible by email or phone with very prompt responses.
L'appartement d'Angie correspond bien aux photos mises sur le site. Il est spacieux et bien aménagé. Il est situé dans un quartier calme et agréable à côté du lac. Les stations de métro sont à environ 15 minutes à pieds et les arrêts de bus sont à proximité. Il y a beaucoup de commerces de toutes sortes dans le quartier.
My husband, daughter, and I stayed at Angie's while in Chicago for a wedding. It was a great experience! Angie's place was very comfortable, and in a beautiful, safe neighborhood. We had easy access to the train, and we loved the 2 playgrounds nearby for our daughter to play in. The neighbors we encountered were super friendly too! Overall it was a terrific time, and we would definitely stay at Angie's again in the future!!
We had a great stay here in Chicago. Angie was super easy to communicate with and went out of her way to make things convenient for us. We stayed there with our 18 month old and Angie gladly met up with our Chicago friends before our stay to hand over keys and get a pack and play for our daughter to sleep in. Great location! Great host!
