This Penthouse is beautiful. I was there for a reunion with my college housemates, and we had a wonderful time. It is located within walking distance to shopping and great restaurants.
The only reason I didn't give this penthouse a 5 star is that it only has 3 beds and 1 air mattress. So it only sleeps 7 comfortably. The airbnb website says it sleeps 10. We originally had 9 reserved to stay. The 3 extra would have slept on the couch in the great room. Maybe because of our age, and the cost for the extra guests, we found this unacceptable. Fortunately only 7 of us were able to stay overnight.
Michael and Casey were awesome though. Casey was very helpful, and we really appreciated her help. All 7 of us agreed that we would stay here again, as long as we have 7 guests or less!
We were a family of six and this wonderful apartment was the perfect find. Location is great, if you're coming by car there's parking literally across the road next to a Plum Market which is one of the best grocery stores on Planet Earth! When we showed the family pictures of the apartment before we arrived they all said that in real life the place would likely be much smaller. How they were wrong, what you see is what you get and it is A LOT.
Michael and Casey always answered their phone even over the weekend and jumped on any questions/issue we had. Will definitely book again when we're next in Chicago. Just one warning...the staircase up to the apartment isn't for the old or infirm (especially with suitcases) but helps to burn off the calories you'll be acquiring during your stay!
We stayed at Michael's place to run the Chicago Marathon and it was the perfect spot! Excellent accommodations and service from the property manager Casey. Great location with easy access to the whole city. Would love to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
The penthouse is just a great as the previous reviewers have said - beautiful place. Plus, the logistics were much easier than other rentals I've done - it makes a big difference having a dedicated property manager. Communication with Casey was super prompt and easy. Thank you!
Michael was an amazing host! Prompt response and extremely friendly and helpful to work with. Casey was fantastic as well! The penthouse is an awesome place in the city. Clean, comfortable, great location and exactly as pictured. Checkin/out was as easy as could be. Thank you Michael and Casey!! Looking forward to coming back soon.
Beautiful apartment, great location. Would definitely stay again.
We stayed at Michael’s place from August 22 until August 25th. It was fantastic, and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Chicago.
- Great location – although we are from NYC, from what we could tell, Old Town is a great area of the city. It is close to downtown and the lake. There are great neighborhood bars as well. If you are looking to use the great kitchen to cook meals, there are also two grocery stores within walking distance. There is also a liquor store right beneath the apartment.
- Great space – the apartment is very spacious, especially the common area and the master bedroom. We rented with a group of 6, so that large common area was perfect for us. There is a small pool table that also converts into a ping-pong table, which we used consistently all weekend.
- Roof deck – there is a shared roof deck with the downstairs neighbor, who is very friendly and welcoming.
All-in-all, our weekend was perfect thanks to this wonderful apartment.
Michaels Chicago Loft was perfect for our groups first visit to Chicago. The owner and his property manager were extremely responsive to our needs. The photos do not exaggerate as the place is beautiful. The location was perfectly located near the metro and convenient to numerous landmarks in the city.
The loft was very large and nicely appointed. There were toiletries made available for us in the bathrooms, a bottle of champagne waiting for us, and all aspects of the reservation went off without a hitch.
Also, there were 2 divvybike stations, and an L station easy walking distance; great stay.
We stayed at Michael's place earlier this month. We stayed for five days, total party of six, including two teenage boys. The setup was well-suited for us.
The property lived up to both the description on this website, as well as previously published reviews. Yes, it is as cool as it looks in the pix! The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, et al. Bedding = best evs! It is evident that the owner cares about his property; it is well looked after.
Michael was very good to deal with in all aspects of the booking / stay, and he responded quickly to any questions raised.
I would look forward to staying here again, and I'd recommend it to friends.
