Check In
Had a little check-in mishap where my key code wouldnt work and I was trapped outside but once the host and i got in touch ..they tried everything in their power to help me out. Besides that everything was as described. Cute little spot in the middle of lost of places to eat and drink. Not far from the downtown attractions or train/airport. Would stay again in the future.

Great price. Great location. Great space and decor. Just wish it were a bit warmer so I could have spent some time on the outdoor patio, but that’s Chicago in December so ‍♂️

Really beautiful place to stay

Fabulous location!

Everything as advertised. Communication is good and detailed instructions. Very hip neighborhood, clean and comfortable apartment, warm too. Very close to transportation, good stores and eateries around. Uber is widely available and bus and metro nearby, convenience store is a walking distance. Would recommend it to anyone.

Wow, what a great apartment! It looks great in the pictures, but it’s actually even more impressive in person. The unit was perfectly clean, the beds were comfortable (even the pull-out!), and the building was very secure. It was surprisingly quiet for being in the heart of Wicker Park. It felt like an upscale hotel, and the location can’t be beat with the number of bars, restaurants, and shops around. Hosts were very responsive and thorough with communication. Be sure to look out for the email detailing self check-in instructions—it made the process pretty easy with pictures and everything. Given the chance I’d definitely stay here again!

Wonderful space in a great location.

Amazing place! Great location and super cute!

Great place to stay if you are looking to be relatively close to the Loop! Also a great location for shopping and loads of restaurants to pick from within walking distance. Place was very clean and provided everything that we needed and more. Some dishes were left uncleaned, but a quick rinse and scrub was no big deal. The resident above us was also a little rowdy and you can hear their bathroom flush through the walls. But we live in an apartment normally anyway, so we're used to stuff like this and it wasn't really within the control of the host. These weren't negatives, but just things to note if you aren't used to living in apartments in the city! We'll definitely be staying here again when we come back to Chicago!!

Amazing stay very cozy

Amazing place! Perfect location - extremely close to the blue line (great for the airport!), wonderful coffee shop across the street, grocery store nearby, shops, restaurants, etc. Apartment itself is wonderful. Clean, cozy, spacious. Loved that there were spices and coffee there - they thought of everything! Cannot recommend enough.

The short stay was in a great location. In the heart of Wicker Park in a very secure building. We appreciated the additional amenities included. If was comfortable and clean. We will absolutely stay there again on our next trip to Chicago.

This space was beautiful, clean, and in a great location! We got to spend time on the roof deck to soak in the sun and the views were perfect. Plenty of restaurants and shops easily walkable from the space. Room was clean and well decorated, anything we needed was easy to find. Some quick tips and tricks about the space were laid out on a handy frame. Would definitely stay here again.

This is an awesome place, and fantastic location!! You can't go wrong. Enjoy :)

Beautiful place!!!!!

The location was great and place is stylish! Great for a week long stay for one!

Beautiful and comfortable unit.

Lovely spot in the heart of Wicker Park!

Amazing unit!

This place is so adorable! Pictures are an extremely accurate overview of the apartment. Very stylish, clean & walking distance to a lot of food places and shopping stores. I would definitely book again!

Great location.

Pretty spacious for a studio! Super clean and located close to so many restaurants, shops, and the blue line. We also enjoyed the roof deck!

Livly's place is a super stylish, clean, brand new construction unit. In the middle of a super busy pedestrian area full of restaurants, coffee shops and cute vintage stores, and a block from the blue line (going to the airport and other great places)! The balcony is super cute (although pretty noisy outside) but has very lovely views of the Chicago sky from bed. A very convenient location for getting a visitor's train pass while you're in town and going all over! Had laundry in unit, but not detergent fyi. Would stay again though, it was otherwise very well equipped!

Awesome place in a very nice neighborhood. There's a pizza place nearby, a Walgreens, a grocery store, and countless restaurants. The apartment is easily accessible and is secure, and the guests provide plenty of details and tips to have a great stay.

Overall a great location and space. The host is very clear in their instructions and directions. Many great restaurants around and close to the blue line to take you to other neighborhoods.

The place was fantastic! It is very stylish and chic. Minutes away from the Blue Line. We had a great stay in Chicago!

Very luxury apartment in the heart of Wicker Park. Plenty of good restaurants and bars. Safe and really really clean building. Check in process is easy and clear. The place is new model and has everything you would need. Highly recommend and would stay here again next time im in chicago.
