This experience immediately jumped into my top experiences I have ever had as soon as I arrived. It was secluded down a little private street, but somehow still only a five minute walk to a nearby bar. Karolina was extremely patient, helpful, willing, and pleasant answering some initial questions I had. Now we get to the camper itself and WOW. This was so cool. Big comfy bed, nice stove top, Roku TV, great air conditioning unit, clean shower with one of those shower heads that you can pull out and move around. They had chairs and a table set up outside and they showed me how to use the awning and all of the lights. There is this cool yellow light that kept every single bug away. I felt like I had plenty of privacy, but Mom was close enough to help if needed (haha). I will be back. This was so much fun. I checked in super late, so next time I will check in earlier to be able to spend more time there and in the area. It exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were already high.

This getaway was a dream. Everything was exactly as described in the listing and the photos were perfect of the inside. The scenery of the neighborhood and proximity to the forest preserves are absolutely amazing. For this being an RV, we felt all of the comforts were available, the bed was very comfortable, the shower was warm, and it was such a relaxing experience. I can’t wait to go back soon!
