Bike riding on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

I had a party of four and we loved our visit. This is a clean and private place on a quiet street. There are outside places to sit. A great view from the kitchen at a baseball field and small playground. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking tools and nice flatware. Everything is very clean and nice. The deck off the master bedroom is really nice to sit on (and grill on). We enjoyed eating in the dining room and having a cocktail in the living room while watching a movie. We parked on the street. Make sure you pay attention to neighborhood ordinances. They have a street cleaning schedule and you don't want your car in the way.

We drove down to North Avenue Beach with our bikes on the back of our SUV and parked for $7 bucks for the entire day. Then rode south to other beaches then all the way north again to Loyola campus. Highly recommend the ride.

We had nice breakfasts (complimentary) and the house is close to shopping, fuel, O'Hare, etc. The best thing about the house was the experience with the owner. Eileen was attentive and available (even though we didn't need anything). She was a pleasure to work with. Perfect 10 of a place to stay.

Amazing price, great home, everything as described!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing stay here in Elmwood Park. Eileen had the house absolutely flawless for our arrival, and everything was as she described in her listing. The house had lots of extra space and we did not feel crammed for a second. The train was nice and close for us to make our way downtown, and we were surrounded by everything we might need (grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, etc.) I would 100% stay again!

Very comfortable, quiet and well located

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment, its location and the hosts to be much to our liking. We were in town on sad business, a family death, and wanted someplace private, quiet and with easy access to expressways, the airport, downtown, north suburbs and south Chicago. Since we would be coming and going at odd hours a safe neighborhood was a priority. And as always we wanted a host who was responsive and helpful. We found all that. And at a value.

It didn't hurt that our hosts were so responsive to any question or concern -- advice on nearby dining and answers to other questions we had.

The kitchen had everything we needed and enough breakfast goodies for all three of us -- my wife, daughter and me. We couldn't eat it all in three days! And Okay, so the water pressure was low in the sink. No big deal. The water pressure in the bath and plush towels made up for that in spades.

Oh, and the beds were comfortable. And the deck with the grill outside the back bedroom was a nice touch. And if you have young kids, the park next door is an added treat.

And as if that weren't enough, grocery chains and pharmacies are nearby.

We would stay here again without a second thought, saving money for dining, tours, museums, theater and music.

Much cheaper alternative and great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the owners were great. They reached out several times to ensure that we were satisfied and provided enough food to supply our family of 6 for breakfast both mornings we stayed. Great experience staying here!
