One of the best rentals I have ever seen!

Ginger and Jim went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy. And the space is lovely!

Great Evanston Rental With Fantastic Hosts
Comfortable home in a very walkable neighborhood. Quick 10 minute walk to grab morning coffee/dinner or to the L. Short UBER ride to Northwestern campus. Good place to stay during peak NU events. Jim and Ginger stocked the home with anything a guest might need. They were very accommodating and great at communicating before and during our stay but not at all intrusive (kinda sad we never met in person). We would definitely consider staying here again if ever in Evanston.

Nice vacation house!

Very nice house, exactly as shown in the photos! We really enjoyed our stay! Only a mile or so walk or jog to the beach or downtown Evanston. Thanks Jim and Ginger!

Lovely space in a cozy neighborhood.

We stayed here with our crew of 6 spanning 2 years to 65 years. There was something for everyone.
Jim and Ginger more than accommodated our small children and the grown ups enjoyed touring their lovely back garden. The beds were comfortable, their kitchen was well stocked and we spent more than one night dining in because the space was so relaxing and enjoyable. We look forward to staying again!

Hosts with a passion for caring

Ginger & Jim are first rate hostess and host with an attention to the details of personalized comfort and care unparalleled in our extensive travels. Their home is warm, comfortable and thoughtfully practical in its anticipation of every guests’ needs. We will be back!

Outstandingly clean and well equipped.
The hosts made as easy and pleasant as could be. We will be back the next time we’re in Evanston.

Everything about this rental experience exceeded our expectations.

Ginger and Jim were very quick to respond to the rental request and contacted us well in advance of our arrival with check-in information. The home was well located for our purposes, in the middle of Evanston. The living space was set up for visitors, with plenty of supplies for short or long-term stays and instructions on how to find and use everything. There was even a great book about the history of the house and local attractions. We will certainly be back.

Our best VRBO experience to date! Perfectly equipped, great layout, excellent location.

The owners have definitely thought of this property from a guest’s perspective, and it shows. Everything is easy to use, supplies are ample, and instructions are simple. We were in town for Christmas with our Aunt, who lives nearby. The place was decorated tastefully, and we were even able to cook Christmas dinner without buying utensils & pans. Stay here!! (But I hate to recommend, because I want it all for myself!!).

This is the best set up and most well equipped place we have stayed away from home. We have stayed at a few different rental properties and this one is the nicest and most well thought out for it's guests. Beyond loved it!!!!

For anyone on a long-stay or who is otherwise tired of hotels and living out of a suitcase, go stay with Ginger and Jim! You will never find a more thoughtful pair of hosts, nor a more "tricked out pad".

They were completely unflappable, and everything was sorted before I even finished asking! The house is well-designed, generously proportioned, and high spec. You could check in, stay, and check out without your hosts -- but you wouldn't want to, because they are fantastic. Thank you, both!
