About Dan

We are an Oak Park family with a boy and a girl in the local grade school. We are in a situation in which we have this amazing apartment attached, yet entirely separate, from our home and have decided to rent it out. We are enormous fans of Oak Park, Chicago and the architecture that you will see in these areas. The apartment is designed to be a staging ground for those that are experiencing this great area.

Dan purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Dan chose Oak Park

The owners of this apartment are life long Oak Parkers. We love this town and the greater Chicago area. We look forward to our guests enjoying and experiencing the place we call home.

What makes this apartment unique

Oak Park has a dearth of hotel rooms. Those that are available are a bit tired and no frills. This apartment is an alternative to those options and will allow guests to live as a family in a home-like setting, rather than cramped hotel rooms. The owners of this apartment will provide you everything that you need, while giving you all the privacy that you desire.

Awesome place in Oak Park

  • 5 of 5

The lower level apartment in this lovely home was cozy and comfortable with all of the amenities you need for any length of stay. There are two bedrooms, one with twin beds and one with a queen. There is a full kitchen, a nice living room, and a dining room set. I would highly recommend this awesome place for someone coming to Chicago for a visit. Oak Park is a lovely suburb, with lots of shopping and restaurants and is convenient to everything. If you are heading to the city you can hop on the highway or take the train. The owners were fabulous and responsive and very hospitable. They give you all kinds of support and advise on things to do and places to see. They were wonderful hosts!

Beautiful apartment , great location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this well appointed apartment in Oak Park. You are in a nice residential area but near stores and many Frank Lloyd Wright points of interest. It’s an easy drive to downtown Chicago. There is a good collection of local history books and pamphlets to acquaint you with the area also. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay here. It was perfect for our needs! The neighborhood is beautiful and safe. We were traveling with my 2.5 year old son so being in a safe neighborhood was key.

The rental has tons of toys, boardgames and books. My son loved playing with the trains.

The owner was very responsive and helpful. Thanks for everything Dan!

perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at this property. Everything and anything that we needed was available. The apartment was clean, stocked and inviting. Beautiful woodwork and hardwood throughout. We didn't get to explore the neighborhood too much, but the surroundings were gorgeous. Can't wait to stay again when we are in the area.

This apartment is nicely situated for you to experience Oak Park and the greater Chicagoland area. It is located 9 miles west of the Chicago downtown and between O'Hare & Midway (11 miles to each airport). Apartment is 1/2 mile away from train to downtown that links to trains to the airports. The apartment is also within a mile from Concordia University and Dominican University, which it makes it a perfect lodging option for guests in town for a reunion or Parent's Weekend.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio is about four blocks away. From there you can admire many of Wright's homes and hundreds of other significant homes. Downtown Oak Park is just a couple of blocks further. Here you will have a large selection of restaurants and shops. There is also a movie theatre. Trader Joe's, Whole Foods & Jewel are all steps from downtown. Two blocks down from the apartment, you can enjoy authentic Chicago deep dish pizza at Giordanos. Afterwards, treat yourself to ice cream at Peterson's, which is an Oak Park institution. The villages of Forest Park & River Forest are right next door and offer their own selection of historic homes, shops & restaurants.
