Description of the Chicago vacation apartment rental
Spacious Bright Vacation Rental Loft in the Heart of Everything Chicago sleeps - 2 - 9 Guests

Brand new listing - the reviews are coming!

Our funky warehouse & former tavern turned costume factory turned fabulous Lincoln Park home can be your home away from home in Chicago.

Located in Chicago's newest neighborhood - "SONO", at the crossroads of Lincoln Park - Old Town & River North - we are just two blocks south of Chicago’s “little Michigan Avenue” and on the Halsted Street busline, the North Avenue & Division street buses as well as the North/Clybourn Red Line and the Sedgwick Brown Line. In short, there is nowhere you can't get to in pretty much a straight shot.

If you’re heading to Chicago and looking to be near downtown but want a more neighborhood experience with friendly, knowledgeable transcontinental hosts, our home on Halsted just might be the perfect fit for you.

Our 2 bedroom plus den sleeps like a 3 bedroom with 3 brand new Sealy Posturepedic Queen size beds. The master bedroom has a sofa sleeper for 1 -2 additional guests and the second bedroom sleeps a third in a twin futon.

Two full bathrooms with either a walk in glass enclosed shower or a glass enclosed combo bath/shower, a to die for gourmet chef's kitchen with all of the accouterments that go with such a kitchen, a dining table that truly seats the same number of guests the apartment sleeps - this is THE home away from home you want for your stay in Chicago.

Check with us for availability (and be sure to let us know your dates, the number of guests) we'll get back to you quickly.

After 10 years of hosting guests from around the world in Athens, we’re truly excited to be welcoming you to our original home in Chicago.

This is an excellent place for a group or big family looking to stay outside downtown Chicago, but with easy access to the L and cabs. We had a great weekend and made plenty use of the amazing kitchen! Would definitely recommend to friends looking for a place to stay in Chicago with a big group.

We arrived in Chicago during the polar vortex, but that didn't stop us from having fun and from our hosts assisting us with different choices when even the museums were closed for a day. We had a fantastic time and the accommodations were first rate. Lots of room and great for a family of five. All kids had separate beds and we even had our parking space reserved and cleaned of snow before our arrival. The recommendations for dining were perfect and we had a fantastic time!! When I come back to Chicago with girlfriends, this will definitely be my first request for lodging!!

The condo was gorgeous and completely updated. We had to add two last-minute guests which were accommodated immediately with extra towels and blankets. It was a wonderful stay and was great for our large group.

I rented this apartment for a girls weekend in Chicago. It was better than I hoped for. The apartment is spacious, tastefully decorated and a fully stocked kitchen. The beds were comfortable and little traffic noise made it easy to sleep well. Close to the Red Line, easy to catch a cab, many great shops and restaurants within walking distance. Carole and Basil were very accommodating, both in our pre-trip planning and while we were there. This place will WOW you. My group is already talking about another Chicago trip and want to stay here again.

I rented this beautiful home with 3 girlfriends and it was everything we hoped for, and more. Carole was helpful, friendly, accommodating and very responsive to us. She provided several restaurant suggestions when we inquired as well as directions to get around the city. The loft itself was gorgeous; recently renovated from the looks of it with a kitchen and 2 full bathrooms to die for. When we arrived the condo was spotless and there was a basket with fruit, local candy and beer waiting for us. My friends and I enjoyed staying here so much we're already planning to return next year. It was a perfect spot for us to linger over morning coffee or have a class of wine at night after we returned from a show. Whole Foods is an easy walk away, as it the metro and an REI store. I would definitely recommend this wonderful home to anyone visiting Chicago. I don't think you could do better.

WoW! My sisters and our daughters surprised our mom with a girls weekend to celebrate her 75th birthday. With a total of 9 women, it took some searching to find accommodations that would fit all of us. This loft was PERFECT! The loft had a state of the art kitchen, all hard wood or tile floors, comfy furniture, super clean, the owners were extremely accommodating and very helpful. We ordered in deep dish pizza one night and Thai food the next. Both on recommendations from the owners and they were spot on. We walked to Navy Pier one day. This is a 4 mile walk, however, takes you through charming neighbors and includes a walk along the beach. It was just great. (a cab ride to Navy Pier was $12 - cheap!) I hopped on the train and then the bus to get to the loft from O'Hare. Super easy! Thank you for a most memorable weekend!!!

I was impressed with the immaculate, spacious and well fitted accommodation we got when we stayed over for the Chicago marathon. It was enormous and very nicely put together, very well equipped and the location a few blocks from the subway made access to the action in Chicago within reasonable striking distance. Another point I'd like to make is that Carole was great - welcoming, helpful, accommodating and she even helped me when my zipper was jammed on my backpack! Great place, great owners, recommended!

Carole and Basil's place is incredible! My friends and I all loved staying there for the weekend. Everything we could possibly need was included in the loft and not to mention tons of space! The kitchen is particularly phenomenal and includes anything and everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious and contain ample sleeping arrangements (our group of 7 was easily more than comfortable). The location is great as well being within walking distance of several area shops/restaurants and the Red Line. It is also situated very well between downtown Chicago and the Lake View neighborhood depending on which experience you're seeking! Carole was very easy to communicate with leading up to our trip and while we were there, which alleviated a lot of stress! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Chicago!

The Loft was perfect for our weekend getaway. Carol and Basil were great hosts and were very easy to work with and accommodating of our changing arrival times. There is plenty of space, the kitchen is incredible with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The bedrooms were like 2 separate suites, large and comfortable. The loft is within walking distance of tons of restaurants, shops and pubs, so you don't even have to leave the immediate area. It is close to the Red Line so it is only minutes to the Loop as well. For a warm relaxing getaway that lets you stay in a home away from one, I would strongly recommend this loft and will definitely be staying there again! Thanks Carol and Basil for a great getaway!

I recently stayed at this property with a group of college friends for a wedding weekend and we had a blast! In addition to being in a super location (10 minutes to the Loop, and a short walk to transit) the loft was simply perfect for our large, 7 person party. We had plenty of space to relax and sprawl out and yet the eclectically decorated and impeccably clean loft was inviting and cozy. Having two large (and luxurious!) bathrooms was a great benefit to us as well. I wish we'd had time to properly use the fully-equipped kitchen - this would be a fantastic boon for travelers looking to make their own meals or do big communal-style dinners with family and friends. I was especially impressed by the attention given to details- this apartment has just about everything you could need during a stay of any length. Upon arrival Carole chatted with us, gave us dining recommendations and helped us out with directions to the suburbs. Our hosts even provided us with a 6 pack of craft beer, locally made sweets, AND coffee. I couldn't have imagined this kind of personalized service from any hotel- staying at the Halsted property really made our wedding weekend even more special. I would love to stay here for my next visit to Chicago!
