Fantastic place in a great location. We had great weather and used the nearby Divvy bike system to explore the city. Karen and Brett's place is centrally located and served well for trips in all directions. We enjoyed coming back to relax in such a comfortable and quiet spot. Highly recommended!

This is a very clean, well-appointed apartment in a beautiful neighborhood. It’s proximity to public transportation, Lincoln Park Zoo, Lake Shore Drive, Lake Front Trail, and to a wide variety of good local restaurants played a huge role in our awesome visit to Chicago. Everything about the apartment was accurately represented on Airbnb and the owners made the rental process a breeze. We would definitely stay here again.

The place was exactly as advertised and in the reviews. Great location and close to everything. Lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance without having to go downtown. The apartment had everything needed and was clean upon arrival. The only complaint we had is the tenants in the other apartments could be easily heard. This wouldn't be a problem except the tenants had young kids (that we only heard crying early 1 morning). They also had a large dog who would bark quite often and it sounded like he was in the same apartment as us. It woke us up early 2 of the 4 mornings. If your intentions aren't to sleep late in the mornings then it wont be an issue. Other than this we liked the place and the free parking was a huge plus for us!

Awesome place to stay! You will feel like you're staying in a nice hotel. Check out the Lincoln Park Zoo that is less than a ten minute walk.

Like you, we enjoy travel immensely and we are happy to share this home with you so you can enjoy your trip to Chicago. We recently remodeled our home (down to the bricks and back up!) and our architects designed this private space for you to enjoy! About us, Karen was born & raised here in Chicago while Brett grew up in Central Illinois.
