Spacious, comfortable house. Great location!

Kirk was very accommodating on getting us in with extremely short notice. My husband recently got a new job and we are looking for a house in the area. We live in Wisconsin so we were looking for somewhere to stay with our 3 children while we were house hunting for the week. The house was perfect! It is very spacious and clean. We could walk to downtown Fox Lake and driving to various areas to look at houses was convenient. This is a great house and we highly recommend it!

Clean, comfortable and quiet in Fox Lake

Everything was as described. We were very comfortable in this house. It was perfect for my family on our trip out to see my extended family. All amenities and the desciption were exactly as described. Everything was clean and very comfortable. It was right by the Lake and one block from the train station for easy access to downtown Chicago. It was also a quick 20 minutes from Six Flags which the kids also had a great time. Plenty of places to eat and easy access to highways to get around the local and Chicago area. We are looking forward to staying here everytime we visit the area. Thanks so much to the owner who gaves us a home while on vacation!

Surpassed expectations!

My family and I rented this home while visiting family in Gurnee, IL. The house was very clean and well maintained with a surprisingly spacious interior that's been updated in recent years. The closet was stocked with games which were a hit with our young children. The owner, Kirk, was great to deal with and provided prompt resposes to all text and e-mail correspondence. He was also available every time I called with a question. I can't comment on the local area as we did not visit any of the local restaurants or use any of the local services. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend this property to friends and family.

2nd wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay in Kirk's "bungalow". It is actually a large, well-maintained house with all the comforts of home. We had a wonderful time with family that live in the area, but had our own place to go to at night. There was plenty of room and everything that we needed during our stay. We are just delighted that we found this spot. Kirk is great to work with too. We look forward to many more visits in the future!

It was a pleasure working with the owner. We loved staying at the house. It is a very convenient location, we took the Metra from Chicago and had no problems walking the short distance with luggage. Can't wait until we can head back.
