Why Steve chose Wrigleyville
I love taking beautiful old buildings and restoring them to modern elegance that people can really enjoy. When I found this place, I knew it was going to need some work, so we kept the stately old features and gave it modern features. We did this project specifically with a vacation rental in mind, so we focused on creating large communal gathering spaces for our guests to enjoy when they aren't out taking in this amazing part of the city.

Contact owner to make sure problems fixed
Numerous problems that owner tried to fix-no wi-fi, no ac, broken upstairs dishwasher, basement flooded when we used downstairs washing machine. Place had not been cleaned prior to check in, trash sack in entry way, litter on floor, mop on back steps. Great location.
We take all less than perfect reviews extremely seriously and aim to never have one again. This was an extraordinarily bad set of circumstances which we have never experienced before and hope never to again. Our cleaning crew made a mistake on move in time and had not finished when guests arrived. They finished up as quickly as possible. The AC was fixed within hours, as was the Internet. All of the issues that arose were fixed before guests left, so future renters have no need to worry about these issues in the future. We do pride ourselves on giving our guests the absolute highest quality experience when staying in our home, and we are so sorry that we were not able to do so for this guest.
Great location, Noisy trash day early
Wonderful multigenerational vacation!
We had a very nice time staying in Chicago and this home was a big part of it! We are a 3 generational family and there was so much space for the kids to play and run around. The rooms worked out really well so that we put the kids down to bed and still had room for the adults to talk, catch up and have a few cocktails in the basement or on the wonderful patio without bothering them. The owner, Steve allowed us to arrive early and drop off our luggage while the cleaning crew was finishing up- they were great to deal with and Claudia (head cleaning person) was super proffessional and even gave us her cell number. The location was great with tons of restaurants to walk to, A nice park up the street, a large super market a few blocks away and a convenient store across the street - not to mention a nice brewery!!! We enjoyed spending time with our kids and grandkids in a clean safe place. It took a lot of planning to put the trip together, but Steve helped us, and all the planning really paid off. Thank you for providing such a great spot for us!
Large, clean and close to Wrigley
We were in Chicago for a Bachelor party and Cubs home opener. It was a great spot. We had all the space we needed with different areas to hang out. The lower level Wirth the pool table and bar was perfect for relaxing. The owner was very helpful before our stay and we really appreciated his advice as to where to go to dinners, etc. He went above and beyond. Killer rental, I highly recommend it.
Very nice, great size for our group
This property met and exceeded our expectations. It was clean, easy walk to public trans, and it fit our group very well without feeling like we were all over each other. There are 10 bedrooms, not all are very large, but I think only 1 has a bunk bed, so we all had privacy and really enjoyed it. Our group is a lot of couples and singles in thir 50's, so we were so pleased to find a place that didn't make us live like we were in the dorms again. It was very well maintained and everything in the listing was absolutely accurate.
OUTSTANDING!! LOVED IT!!
This was the perfect setting for our annual girls trip. We are 17 college friends in our 40's and we gather once a year to spend some quality time reminiscing, drinking wine and checking out a fun city. We always do it in early April, and would have come to Chicago years ago, but the weather always scared us off. It turned out to be pretty gross outside all weekend, but because of this spacious home it didn't really matter. There were so many areas for us to congregate and chat, and the dining area was just b huge, we actually all fit at the table- which has never happened!!! The place was well maintained and very clean. It was much nicer than we expected in a big expensive city like Chicago. Location is great, you can walk to restaurants, shops Wrigley Field and all of the nightlife. Also worth noting- We were able to park 5 cars (Steve only claims it fits 4, but we made them fit). We put 2 on the street also with no trouble. Steve mentioned this would be tough if there was a cubs game, but we missed that- Maybe next time. Thank you to Steve and Claudia for having us, we loved it!
