Resident 1991 - 2016

6/27/2016

Windermere was a great place to live. Quiet, large units, clean, but the tenants that have been moving in lately do not care about the building. My neighbor leaves her trash, old furnishings, and bedding in the middle of the hallway. I have… See More >

AVOID THIS PLACE!! We lived at Windermere for 2 years and it was a living hell. We were burglarized by a neighbor on our floor and the management refused to do anything about it when presented with proof. This person also stole our… See More >

    Good building. I've lived in Windermere for a few years now and it's been great. Positives: safe building (with doorman), well-maintained, responsive staff (building manager, doorman, maintenance, etc), laundry room on each floor, small fitness center, lot/garage parking available for a fee, close… See More >

      Resident 2011

      1/30/2011

      I decided to move up a little bit in the Hyde Park rental world without moving out of Hyde Park, and I think the Windermere is a great balance of South Side living with North Side fixings (and prices.) While it's not a cheap… See More >

        Thanks for the review. We love the antique elevators, but agree they can be "wacky". We made some upgrades in the elevator control room since your review and believe the elevators are working well now.

            I lived at Windermere from 2007-2008. On the whole it was very quiet. The only time it was noisy was when they were doing construction on my floor, in which case the sound of jack hammers was not infrequent. The gym on the top… See More >

              Windermere House use to be a beautiful historial building, until MAC Properties took over. Have done a lot of unnecessary renovation taking away the historical beauty of the building. Nor does MAC cares about its tenants, just high price rent.… See More >

                I've been here for over a year, and really liked it when I first moved in--- but that was before the newest management and all the construction. They've gotten a lot stricter about smaller things (like you can't take carts / bikes / dogs /… See More >

                  People should be allowed to smoke in their own apartments, IF the smoke did not stink up the entire floor. But it does, and for that reason, the building should be smoke free. Why is renovation taking forever? What a waste of money. The new… See More >

                    I've lived in the Windermere House for almost a year, and it has been very enjoyable. You can't ask for a better location in Hyde Park... it's close the the lake, bus stop, metra, and the University of Chicago. I also love the size of… See More >

                      It is unfortunate that a historical landmark as Windermere is receiving such negative reviews because it is a beautiful building and it has ammenities you can appreciate but living with personal experience; I can relate it is becoming disappointing to see beauty taken for granted… See More >

                        The new MAC management is terrible. People can now smoke in the building whenever they want, the management refuses to adequately screen new residents--some people are really shady. The building is under renovation constantly, and there are no safety procedures used (MAC actually got in… See More >

                          I have lived at Windermere House for over 20 years and this is the first company and property manager that has improved this building and staff. I was shocked to read some of the negative comments about the building. I was born and… See More >

                              To be fair, I moved here from a practically perfect place in D.C. so my expectations were high. Windermere disappointed on many levels.

                              We took your comments to heart and decided to renovated apartments too. Our new kitchens and bathrooms retain their original charm, but have the modern touches you expect in a first rate property.
