    Richard R from Edinburgh, UK recommends this vacation rental

    I visited Chicago on business for a week and was led in my searches for accommodation to this beautiful gem of an apartment, quite the most tastefully furnished that I have ever stayed in any of my short, self-catering business travels. The owner, who lives above, was warm and welcoming. The apartment was extremely clean, comfortable and spacious (apart from the bedroom: a little cramped but still, very comfortable) and the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, crockery and basic supplies. Grocery stores and several restaurants are within a few minutes walk. Sedgwick Street station for hooking into the CTA public transport ('L') system is within 10 minutes walk. The area is quiet and safe. Booking through the management company was smooth, communicative and professional. I highly recommend this outstanding rental and I would actively seek to stay here again on any future visit to Chicago.

    Vincent K from Glenview, IL recommends this vacation rental

    "Garden level" floor of row house very close to the lake and lots of local eateries, bars, and shops. Bedroom is small and common areas are modest but adequate. Kitchen is fine. Only real deficiency is a shortage of comfortable sitting/lying-down chairs/couches in living room. All-in-all, very pleased though and a nice place to "play house" in Old Towne.

    Raphael L from Laval, Quebec recommends this vacation rental

    We had very good experience in this Old town apartment. The location is perfect; 1 block from buses to downtown, 10 minutes walk to the Brown train, 10 minutes walk to the Lincoln Park zoo, 15 minutes walk to the beautiful North Beach. Grocery store is close. Having our child with us, we were very happy to be able to have breakfast and some dinner at the apartment; amenities to prepare meals are perfect. Very nice to have our own washer & dryer. We were in Chicage in very hot temperature so the A/C was on much of the time and it was a little cold (it's a semi-basement). The owner was nice enough to set the temperature higher. We also closed the vents and left the backdoor opened while we were there to let soem hot air in. Backyard is very nice but smells the dog ! We enjoyed some conversations with the owner, very friendly. We recommend this place !

    Very pleased with this rental. Great location, cozy, perfect size.

    Parking was horrible, if you're not from the city you'd better bone up on your parallel parking skills!

    a guest from Wheeling, WV recommends this vacation rental

    My family and I do not particularly enjoy the hotel experience and were happy to find accommodations through . The website was easy to use and communication was good through email and telephone. The only areas that caused concern were primarily parking, then instructions upon vacating. First parking. We were staying four nights, and upon arrival there were only passes for two nights. I called the owner and she seemed vague about how to go about getting passes and even being able to procure them, which made me nervous enough to start searching for a contingency plan parking garage. However upon our return from the day's outings there were parking passes- so it all ended well. I have the expectation that the parking situation would be clearly and firmly taken care of so that guests would not have to worry. Second- instructions upon vacating need to be edited. We were instructed to turn off the air conditioning upon leaving, however the controls for the A/C are in the owner's quarters.

    Kinsey D from Roeland Park, Ks recommends this vacation rental

    We came into town to see the Cubs play and really enjoyed staying in this apartment. Having the owner upstairs helped with all our needs and the location was great!! Easy to get everywhere and lots of amazing restaurants right out the front door. There is a great outdoor patio that isn't pictured! I would recommend this apartment to anyone.

    Barbara's Hideway was just perfect. While visiting relatives within easy walking distance of this home away from home, I enjoyed the morning coffee in the spacious and comfortable living room and slept like it was my own home (a usual rareity when away). Well stocked and perfect. Highly recommend.

    a guest from Pelham, NY recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our second stay at Barbara's Hideaway just as much as the first. The apartment is lovely, welcoming and so comfortable, with lots of natural light. I hosted a small family dinner one night and found the kitchen to be well equipped with everything I needed. You can't beat the location minutes from Lincoln Park, restaurants and easy access to downtown. We'll come "home" again to this one!
