My family and I stayed at the property twice from Christmas Eve until January 7th, as my son was going through basic training at the Navy Recruit Training Center at Great Lakes. The house is very centrally located and was only 15 minutes from the airport as well as the center of the city. The house is only 35 minutes away from the Navy base, with a very easy commute. The house is newly renovated and extremely well maintained. The house has a detached garage so there were no worries about finding street parking. We first stayed at the house for Christmas, and the property owner, William, took it upon himself to put holiday decorations all over the house (including a lit and decorated tree!). He even called a local butcher for us so that we had a roast ready for pick-up on Christmas Eve. Our second stay was for my son’s graduation from Navy training, and William once again took it upon himself to decorate the house with lots of balloons to celebrate my son’s graduation – what a surprise when we arrived! Overall, we can’t recommend this property enough for anyone exploring Chicago and especially if you’re visiting someone going through the Navy recruit training. I will definitely return to this home with any visit to Chicago.
