It was a pleasure to stay at Catharine and Rosemary's apartment. Whenever our paths crossed at mealtimes, we had great chats. Everything was like a picture -- in fact, just like the photos on the site. The bed linens were the softest I've ever felt and the sofa was perfectly comfortable for evening TV viewing. Thanks to the coffee machine in the lounge a floor up, I lived off French Vanilla coffee. And my sister and I even visited the gym, which has all the weight/cardio machines you could wish for.
The apartment was 5 minutes walk away from Navy Pier, the Riverwalk, and Michigan Avenue shopping. And the Loop was a lengthier, but manageable walk. Dominick's, a supermarket, is a street away and can be seen from the window.
I can't imagine finding better in Chicago. The apartment, amenities and location are fantastic and reasonably priced for what you get. Catherine is also an extremely pleasant and thoughtful host. She even stocked the fridge with drinks for us!
Catharine was an amazing host who was very quick to reply to any queries or concerns I had before our stay as well as during the stay. She was easily available via airbnb messaging, email, text and phone. My friends and I felt very well taken care of - we were a group of five and there was more than enough room for us. The check-in and check-out process was seamless. We were not able to meet up in person for check-in but I was able to get into the condo through a previously arranged setup with the doorman. The condo itself was beautiful, well-maintained, pre-stocked with beverages and some food in the fridge, and had a great view of Streeterville. We had a great time and would highly recommend to friends and family!
Catharine was such a gracious host! The apartment was awesome, with great views (the impressive pictures on airbnb do not lie). We walked everywhere: navy pier, Willis tower, millenium park, window shopping on michigan ave, etc. We It turns out that my wife's relative was Catharine's (and Rosemary's) mom's classmate in high school (back in our home country)! Small world. It further turns out that we have mutual friends in Columbus. We didn't get to really meet Rosemary, Catharine's sister, just caught a glimpse of her when she came in to fetch a book in the morning. The queen bed was very comfortable. We watched a couple of movies. They have a huge dvd collection to choose from. The living room tv is connected to netflix and cable as well. Parking everywhere in the area is expensive. We used the parking in the building ($34/day) but Catharine went out of her way to get us coupons we could use and we only had to pay $25/day for parking. All in all, a 5 star experience! Highly recommended.
Wow, where to start?? We had an amazing stay. Despite Catherine's absence during our stay we were so well looked after and all our needs if not met, were certainly exceeded with arrival procedures, building information and departure instructions all very clear and easy to follow, and Catherine only a short phone call away at all times. Catherine's place is so well located and so easy to find its a no brainer for a return visit. Her apartment's facilities were amazing with a full on health club only a floor above and we were able to use the gym a number of times during our stay with no added fuss or expense and although the pool was closed at that time of the year we did take advantage of the rooftop terrace for a drink or two and the hot tub even got a work out. Inside her apartment Catherine clearly has impeccable taste and the place couldnt have been more luxurious to a group of weary travellers. Dual bathrooms, televisions with cable and extensive dvd libraries and gaming consoles came in handy in virtually every room and the beds and couches were tremendously comfortable with amazing bedding provided. The view from the living areas speaks for itself and the kitchen had been fully stocked with essential food and drink by Catherine specifically for us so that we could eat and drink at will without requiring shopping and transport which was such an added bonus removing all fuss and included in the cost to rent.
Thanks again to Catherine for the level of comfort afforded by her beautiful home and we cant wait to use her place again in the future.
Had a great time staying here in Chicago!! Rosemary was very sweet and showed us exactly where to catch the bus and the el. She was very polite and friendly, gave some great suggestions on where to go, what to eat & where to take some great pics of the city. Great hostess!!
Catharine was super friendly and the place is just like the pictures. A great experience in Chicago for all!
Pearly was absolutely excellent with accomodating us especially on such short notice. Was there to visit family and she even tried helping to find a venue for our family gathering. The condo was stunning with views to match. The master bedroom bed was amazingly comfortable! Would love to stay here again!
Outstanding from inside out. Fully furnished with fabulous interiors. The owner was so nice in quickly responding to all my emails. This is the best place to stay in downtown Chicago. Would recommend this place to all my friends and shall use this again if I need to stay in Chicago.
Although we did not have the chance to meet Pearly in person, she was a great host and make sure we felt at home. The apartment was even better than in the pictures! The buildings had great ammenities (gym, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna...) and everything was brand new and neat. The place is very well located (just north of the loop, between the magnificent mile and the navy pier).
We'd definitively come back!
In one word: perfect!
